I am trying this in Windows, which is not my normal platform.
I have found that I can have a
.atom directory beside the
Atom portable application directory to store my custom settings. That seems to work to some extent.
I want to automate installing packages using
…\apm.cmd install --packages-file packages.txt where
packages.txt is a file with the desired package names.
This will install the packages, but puts them inside the
~user\.atom directory rather than in my portable
How can I direct
atom to install packages into the alternative directory?
