After started using Sublime Text 2 (ST2), was completely head over heels for it. After using it for some time, figured out that ST2 uses a settings file to remember the plugins, open tabs etc. I was using my laptop (Mac) and sometimes uses my PC (Windows) do type blog post or some other stuff. So thought of giving a try in syncing these two using Dropbox folder.
The idea is to have the settings file in the Dropbox folder and to have a symlink in the OS to point to. This means whatever changes i did to a ST2 instance will reflect in my other instance too.
- Install ST2 in both the machines.
- Have a DropBox account and install the software in both the machines.
Move the entire Sublime Text folder into the Dropbox folder.
Next step is to create a symlink in the original location so that it the folder in the Dropbox will be used to store the settings.
Windows don't have symlink concept. So we have to settle with NTFS symbolic link
That's it, now you don't need to worry about the sync between these two instances.
