Is it possible to backup Atom packages to be able to auto-install them when using Atom on multiple computers


I’m using Atom on 3 different computers and I think it would be nice, if it does not already exists, to have backup mecanism for packages.


  • You are on a computer, discover a new package and install it.
  • Then Atom automatically edit a file that represents it’s package dependencies
  • When you open Atom on another computer, your new packages auto-install them-selves or the one you deleted remove them selves

Or something like that…

Multiple cloud tools exists these days like OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox and etc so it could be another possible option to export the dependency file into the Documents on a cloud service.

What do you think…?

Store preferences on cloud
