Backup Sketch settings and plugins?

3 months ago from , Product designer

So, scenario is that I have work laptop, work computer and personal laptop but all plugins and settings are different.

Is there a system, plugin etc that anyone knows off that allows me to sync to a cloud service and then log in to the other systems and sync those.

  1. Backup settings
  2. Sync to another computer so everything is the same.

I recently done the same thing with Alfred app, which uses dropbox to backup and sync the settings.

    I wonder if you could do something like this with Dropbox and symlinks.

    It's not perfect for your problem, but you can export your 'Managed' plugins from Sketchpacks. It at least saves the headache of remembering your list.

      Sketchpacks allows you to both import/export a sketchpack to essentially backup your installed plugins.

      If you want to sync your plugins across machines, simply export a new sketchpack file or move an existing one to a shared directory.

      Next, open up Sketchpacks Preferences and change the location of the preferred sketchpack you'd like to use.

      Scroll down in Preferences and choose your sync'ing rules.

      Sketch settings/configuration is out of scope for Sketchpacks though.

    I asked them about this feature and they said they don’t support it. Agreed because at least Adobe lets you save settings in the cloud.

      With their new "Teams" feature, I thought this would be ideal, but I guess not
