Portable Lectrote


(Matt_W) #1

Just a quick question: I’m trying to put Lectrote on a USB stick for portability. Does anyone know where it stores configuration info and autosaves? Does it use the browser cache? It appears not to use the installation directory, unless I’m missing something.

It uses “~Library/Application Support/Lectrote/” on MacOS, and something appropriate on Mac and Windows.

electronjs.org/docs/api/app#appgetpathname – see the “userData” field.

Thanks! Makes sense. So, not explicitly portable unless I do some tricky dropbox stuff or something. That’s ok. I can do manual saves when I need to move between machines.
