BIG FAT WARNING: This plugin is very early alpha. If you are going to try it out - MAKE YOUR OWN BACKUP of the .atom folder in case bugs happen.
This package provides a simple way to sync your atom configuration over several computers via existing file synchronization tools. This package is planned to have 2 modes of operation:
Tarball mode. Prepare atom configuration tarballs and put them in a directory which is synchronised via ownCloud/nextCloud/DropBox/etc. And vice-versa.
Git mode. Commit all the changed configuration files into git and push/pull to synchronize. (Planned! Not yet implemented)
apm install atom-ownsync
Navigate to the package settings and adjust the tarball storage directory (that should be in your dropbox/owncloud/nextcloud folder).
The rest of the stuff is optional
Create your first configuration package
.atom directory contains thousands of files, thanks to the way nodejs and the rest of the software stack works. Synchronization of thousands of small files is painfully slow and provides a HUGE load both for the desktop sync client and the server your are synchronizing with. Pushing a .tar file back and forth is way faster, though consumes a bit of network traffic.
WARNING: This plugin is very early alpha. Only been tested and works on linux and mac, since it relies on tar for creating tarballs. Windows support is on the way
HELP WANTED: The author of this plugin is not very familiar with js/coffeescript being more a linux kernel dev. If you are a js guru and can spare a few minutes to do a proper code review I'd be very grateful
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
