App save location?

Post by sgjsgj »

Hi there. Where does INIDGO Dashboard save its config? I want to move it from one Mac to another.

So far I've found:

Code: Select all

~/Library/Containers/eu.cloudmakers.INDIGO-Dashboard/Data/Library/Preferences/eu.cloudmakers.INDIGO-Dashboard.plist
...but copying that doesn't seem to do the trick.

It should be the correct file, but copying it is the right way how to do it. There are data inside which are not portable from one machine to another.

Among this place containing preferences of macOS wrapper there are also config files of the INDIGO drivers in ~/.indigo folder which is in sandbox mapped to ~/Library/Containers/eu.cloudmakers.INDIGO-Dashboard/Data/.indigo. But again, it is not safe to copy the files from one machine to another.

Understood. Shouldn't be too hard to redo manually but I'd like to keep the two machines in sync going forward.

How about iCloud syncing or a JSON export/import? :)

It is a good idea, I'll think about it.
