Atom editor: Hide project tab / tree view

 Atom does not have an option for doing this by default, and I'm not the only one who wanted to change it.

From https://discuss.atom.io/t/hide-treeview-by-default/7718/46, Jake posted the most functional way to correct this behavior.

To change this:

1) Go to File -> Init script...

2) Paste:

atom.workspace.onDidOpen ({item}) -> itemName = item.constructor.name if (itemName != 'TreeView') # no action if open TreeView intentionally dock = atom.workspace.paneContainerForURI('atom://tree-view') if dock && dock.isVisible() dock.hide()

3) Save

On next startup, the project tab will be hidden. Works at this time of posting.
