SyncSettings overview

SyncSettings is the application able to back up and sync the preferences of your mac apps. Tired of settling all your apps after a new macOS install or manually keeping the same settings across several macs? SyncSettings will do it for you. SyncSettings packages your preferences into a single ssbackup file. So, you can then keep your data locally or store them in the cloud. In this way, all your computers will always have access to the same data.

All cloud providers are compatible such as iCloud, Google Drive, One Drive and even GitHub. The project has been under construction for several months to support the largest number of apps. Almost all the applications of the Mac App Store are already supported by SyncSettings. In addition, a special list of more than 400 non-standard applications and executables has been integrated too. Your favorite tools are already integrated: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Illustrator, Atom, IntellijIdea, Omnigraffle, PHP Storm, PyCharm, Tower 3, Transmit, WebStorm, Xcode, Bash, Bundler, Git, Docker, Emacs, Heroku, Maven, MySQL, Perl, PostgreSQL, Vim, Zsh and much more. Many users use SyncSettings to set up new computers or new versions of macOS. That is why SyncSettings includes a note editor. It allows you to write your own notes of what to do. Morover, the app is not limited to preferences files. You can define your own files and it will back up and sync them seamlessly.

Version: 1.1.0
Why should I give read/write access to my entire disk to any application. SyncSettings does require this. It seems to me it should allow you to access a subset.
