I have a repository that is very large, and has a very large number of sub-directories and files. When I attempt to open a single subdir of the repository with Atom (which is 13MB), it will crash repeatedly.
I don't get any helpful logs in the
nohup.log and the crash log doesn't show anything helpful either.
When I tried opening the repo in VS Code I get this message:
"Visual Studio Code is unable to watch for file changes in this large workspace" (error ENOSPC)
And it sends me to this error message page link. It is also able to actually open and display the files I'm looking at.
Is there a way to get atom to not index all the files in the repo and to only focus on a limited subset of files so it doesn't crash trying to index everything?
Is there a way to tell atom to only focus on the files in the subdir that I am opening?
Alternatively, is there a way to tell Atom not to index everything automatically and instead have it refresh the file explorer only when I tell it to, such as manually hitting a file explorer refresh button? (this is the behavior of VS Code with large repos)
