Nothing happnes (EMFILE error)

Steps to reproduce

I just started Obsidian and nothing appears.

Expected result

Everything should work as normal.

Actual result

All white/black screen with buttons on the side that do nothing.


  • Operating system: Ubuntu 18/Mint
  • Obsidian version: 0.7.4

Additional information

I opened up the console and there appeared an EMFILE error.

Uncaught (in promise) Error: EMFILE: too many open files
at FSWatcher.start (internal/fs/watchers.js:165)
at (fs.js:1329)
at R.startWatchPath (app.js:1)
at R.<anonymous> (app.js:1)
at app.js:1
at (app.js:1)
at app.js:1
at new Promise (<anonymous>)
at S (app.js:1)
at (app.js:1)

I think this type of errors can be mitigated with using graceful-fs instead of fs, if I recall correctly.

Can you provide some more information to reproduce this behavior?
