How to migrate atom settings to other computer?

thanks

Seriously, why is it too hard for you to google that?
Literally the first result:


#3

Yep. I was google it, seriously
perhaps I have different google - can you paste here result/link?


#4

Search for “atom synchronize settings”


#5

Super unnecessary. Googling doesn’t always provide you with all results for Atom packages, since not all packages use the proper keywords. Maybe something better than sync-packages exists and OP wouldn’t know unless he asked the community. No harm in asking.

As to the op, sync-packages is the best it gets.

I work on Linux.

On Linux, Atom stores all personal data, like the keymap, stylesheet, installed packages, etc.
in your Home directory. The path is ~/.atom . You can simply backup / compress this folder and
extract it on another machine to get all of your personal settings back.

I assume this method works on Windows as well. Look out for the right folder.

The .atom/ folder also contains folders like compile-cache/ which you definitely don’t need to back up, as well as the node_modules/ folders of every package you have installed. Backing up specific files is the most efficient option.
