Sync user settings across machines

Sync user settings across machines

Postby chrisnyc on Mon Nov 21, 2011 12:59 pm

First off, I discovered Sublime Text 2 a few days ago and haven't been this excited about a software title in a while. Finally a reason to give up on TextMate.

Anyway, here's a pretty obvious tip that some may not know to sync your user settings with Dropbox. Works in OS X and Linux. Not sure how in Windows. Example is for OS X

1) Close Sublime Text 2 and from the console go to the terminal.
2) "mv ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/User ~/Dropbox/User"
3) "ln -s ~/Dropbox/User ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/User"

Start Sublime Text 2 and you'll be linked to Dropbox.

On your other machines do:

1) "mv ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/User /tmp"
2) "ln -s ~/Dropbox/User ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/User"

Symbolic link on Windows 7

Code: Select all
mklink /D path\to\dropbox path\to\sublime\packages\user
