Where should project related settings be stored?


#1

Hello!

I want to develop a packaged called “favourite-files”, where you can organize files and groups of files you often need to access.

Well, those files and group are related to a project, I’d like to save them in a .json or .cson file, but where should I store it?
Would it make sense, to store them below a .atom/ folder in the project root?

.atom/storage/ is a good place to keep things.

The ~/.atom/storage directory is for Atom’s package serialization support. You shouldn’t store anything in there manually.

If you want to know about how Atom’s serialization system works, check the Atom Flight Manual:
