How to synchronize Sublime Text settings across several computers

This will synchronize all settings and installed packages across multiple machines using Dropbox.

On the first computer

  • Close Sublime Text 2
  • Copy C:\Users\you\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 2\Packages to your dropbox folder (c:\Dropbox\Sublime Text 2\Packages)

On all computers (including first computer)

  • Delete the Packages folder C:\Users\you\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 2\Packages
  • Create a link to your Dropbox folder :
    cd C:\Users\you\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 2
    mklink /D Packages "c:\Dropbox\Sublime Text 2\Packages"
  • Start sublime

Note: It works the same way on Unix computers using the ln command. On Linux  the path is ~/.config/Sublime Text 2/Packages.
