How to get Nottelo synced via Dropbox or other services

Although Nottelo does not support sync yet, you can get your laptops and desktop devices synced via Dropbox or other file sharing service like Google Drive, Box, Mega, etc. This way of synchronization might work for you but keep in mind that this feature is not recommended, has it's security risks and you should test it first at your own risk.

First of all, this kind of synchronization is suitable only if you are not going to use two application at the same time but always just one at the time, exclusively. For example, it's possible to sync your home computer with your work computer if you never use both of them at the same time. Otherwise, your database may get corrupted.

All you have to do is:
  • turn off Nottelo
  • backup database folder somewhere to a safe place
  • move database folder to your Dropbox folder
  • edit settings.conf config file where you change the database path to new location in Dropbox
  • you may run Nottelo now
  • edit config file on the other computer to change the path to the database folder located in Dropbox
  • edit config file where you change the database path to a new location in Dropbox
  • run Nottelo
And you're done. Don't forget to suspend or turn off your computer before you use another one.
