small question, I use atom text editor, today I installed Github for windows. Since all my commits messages triggered notepad.exe, I used the following line to change my global editor:

 git config --global core.editor atom

Now everytime I try to commit something, atom start and open the indicated file, but in my powershell windows, git says:

Aborting commit due to empty commit message.

There is any guide or config settings to make atom work with github for windows? Thanks.


I found a solution suggested by a person in the atom discussion forum:

 git config --global core.editor 'atom --wait'
