Syncing Brackets extensions across multiple machines

Jumpstart your Angular applications with Indigo.Design, a unified platform for visual design, UX prototyping, code generation, and app development.

This really isn't a new tip, but as someone just asked on Twitter for a quick explanation, I thought I'd write it up. If you want to sync Brackets extensions across multiple machines, the easiest way to do it is with Dropbox, or a Dropbox-like service. As long as it creates a physical folder on your machine, you can simply store your extensions there (for me it is /Users/ray/Dropbox/BracketsExtensions) and then create a symlink between that folder and the folder Brackets uses for extensions. What folder is that?

In the Bracket's Help menu, simply click "Show Extensions Folder."

Make a note of that path, drop into Terminal, or CMD (and yes, Windows can do symlinks), and make the connection

Take a look at an Indigo.Design sample application to learn more about how apps are created with design to code software.
