Atom Editor crashing on Mac OS versions prior to 10.12 #19497
The editor crashed when I attempt to work on a file that is saved. I can edit a new, unsaved file. Once I save that file, however, I get "The editor has crashed" error. The same occurs if I open an existing file in Atom, or open a folder and then select a file in the left sidebar.
It was perfectly fine earlier today, and the issue has developed suddenly. I am running OS X 10.9.5
Steps to Reproduce
Expected behavior: Be able to edit files in Atom.
Actual behavior: Atom editor stops responding, forcing me to close the window.
Reproduces how often: As of earlier today, 100% of the time.
Atom : 1.38.0
OS: Mac OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks)
The log file indicates the crashed process is "Atom Helper."
Excerpt from the log file:

If you need more info or logs, just let me know. Thanks!
I'll pass this along to the development team. Unfortunately, when we reach Atom v1.39 Stable, which runs on Electron v3.1, the minimum supported version of macOS will be 10.10 because the Chromium component packaged with Electron v3.1 requires a minimum of macOS 10.10.
My problem is caused by 'language-python' package. The problem disappears when I disable this package. But I can not use python by atom.
I am also having this issue. I can open a project but when I try and edit a file the editor crashes and forces me to close it. I have run through all the debug steps. I am working on a project running foundation 6. Everything was working great and then it crashed.
Does not appear to occur on very small files ( < 35 lines ). Apparently not related to particular file types, but for completeness I'm working with js files.
Your workaround resolved the problem.

Thanks, @nathansobo. I can confirm that the issue is resolved by disabling Tree Sitter parsers. The issue reappears when I enable them again. I read that the referenced symbol only exists macOS versions 10.12 and higher, but I didn't know what was referencing it.
Ah, that makes sense. Didn't notice the issue had changed.…

Dear sir, Thank you very much for your help. Now It works well for me by toggling the Use Tree Sitter Parsers. Hopefully it could be thoroughly worked out in the future. Best, Chao…
