[WayBack] Omg this is awesome. Synchronize settings etc between Atom installs!https://atom.io/packages/sync-settings#atomio – Roderick Gadellaa – Google+

I revisited this and it’s awesome.

Note that – as usual – when you sync settings for packages that have external dependencies, these dependencies depend on your platform of choice.

Which means that if for instance depend on Pandoc and you use both a Mac and Windows, you need Pandoc installations plus all dependencies on those platforms before syncing your settings.

»If files are 3 KB in size, does it make more sense to store them directly in a DB or does it make more sense to store only their path in the DB?«

On Linux, always remember the splice function makes direct data paths between handles very cheap, so storing it as files is better.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/26

Searching 7z.exe calculate crc32 didn’t return any meaningful results, but [WayBackUsing 7-zip hashing to compare directories and files – Sami Lehtinen did help me as I never noticed that somewhere along the line the h command got added to 7z.exe. It’s not even in the documentation, as found by searching for 7zip commandline arguments:

but it is in the command-line help, at least in versions 16.x:
