I’ve always maintained a Git repo with Sublime Text that contains my settings, key bindings and installed packages etc.
Moving to Atom I find that I can’t easily do this. There are a couple of issues:
- There is no explicit list of packages (that I can find) held in the config so when I move to another machine and clone these packages aren’t installed automatically. This is one of the main reasons for storing my config centrally
- I can’t make my repo public as sensitive information is kept in the
config.cson, for example my metrics user id
The seconds isn’t really a biggie as I can make the repo private, but the first would be a very nice feature for people, like me, that work over several machines
