Can Atom Settings Be Shared?


Is there a way to share Atom settings between computers, perhaps using Dropbox or Google Drive?

I tried to create a symlink between a copy of the .atom folder on my Google Drive and my home directory, but that made the copy of Atom on my MacBook Pro open with no styling.

Maybe I did it wrong? Or maybe it can’t be done?

If it can’t be done, that would be a shame.


I’m storing my atom folder (which i moved from the default location into Dropbox) and then symlink ~/.atom to it ln -s /path/to/atom_folder ~/.atomIt’s been working fine across computers


Thanks. I need to retry. When I did that the first time the other computer opened with a white Atom window content.
