It does inform the user with prompt messages that require clicking “Ok” to continue.
Did these messages not appear for you?

@l33tgirlcoder_twitter If you would like to change the messages, please submit a Pull Request to Atom-Beautify. This is an open-source project than loves contributions from others :)
return unless confirm('Are you ready to debug Atom Beautify?\n\n'+

does it say, "your environment variables will be published, or does it say the contents of the ide?

That’s the code right there. It will not continue until the user clicks “ok"
That sounds like a very good change that you can submit a Pull Request for. Always great to have improvements! :)
The Gist was created automatically because other users were struggling to report their debugging information. So it was added in to be automated for Atom-Beautify to help users report their debugging information and ask for help.

ok, thanks for the info and response. I still think it is a bit of dangerous feature

I agree. I am definitely thinking of how to change it. unfortunately I do not have time right now (in exams and big work projects) so I can’t make the changes myself :(
Originally it would be copied to the clipboard but users were having problems with that, too. We’ve seen a great improvement in Issues reported, but at a cost of over-automating, I would say..
I’d love to discuss more on GitHub about recommended improvements and if you have any questions and are interested in submitting a Pull Request feel free to let me know! Thanks!
