.julia folder in dropbox


#1

Is it a good idea to put the .julia folder in a dropbox folder, so that it syncs across all my computers, or would it lead to subtle bugs?

mmm, i don’t think so, but maybe you should add your dropbox folder to each computer’s path if you want to use the julia executable directly in those computers

Thanks. I am not looking to share the julia executable, just the .julia folder, that has all the downloaded packages.

Perhaps I’m mistaken, but I guess that the build and precompilation done when the packages are installed or updated in one machine may not work well if you use the packages in a different machine. That may lead to frequent recompilations, each time you switch between machines, or perhaps they just won’t work.
