How to store user settings in 'home' folder?

How to store user settings in 'home' folder?

Postby eyeofhell on Sat Mar 02, 2013 9:47 am

Hello.

For all my editors and ide (vim, emacs, eclipse, pycharm, visual studio) settings are stored in user home folder ("~"). I use windows and OSX at work, Ubuntu at home - so all i need for settings share is to share my home folder via bitbucked and i have exactly same settings on all my computers and laptops.

Surprisingly, it seems that sublime stores it's settings in OS-specific folders like "Application Data" in windows. Is it any way (plugin, maybe?) that allows to store user settings just like al other editors and ide do - in user home folder / subfolder?

Hi, all you need is to create symbolic links to your sublime text preferences.

For example: Use Dropbox to store your Sublime Text 2 settings, themes and plugins — Stofke on wheels

I know about symbolic links, but it adds additional complexity and is not working very well in case files are deleted and recreated instead of modification (for example, it's not possible to use symbolic links with VIM since it will delete config file and write it back on some operations).

Is it any other solution, or symlinks are the only way around?
