INDI Library v1.9.8 Released (29 Sep 2022)

Bi-monthly INDI Library released with new drivers and bug fixes.

Best (Any?) way to share configuration between Mac Desktop and Mac laptop

I'm new to EKOS/INDI and have been thoroughly enjoying it with my AstroBerry configuration out at the scope, while I sit comfortably inside the house.

When I set up for the evening, I do a lot of my work on the laptop - close to the scope. However, once its set up, I like to transition to my iMac desktop.

Are there recommendations on synchronizing the configuration between two locations (iMac/Macbook)?

I tried a symlink in the ~/Library/Application Support/kstars folder to a common dropbox folder, but kstars does not appear to follow the sym link.

When I initially started using EKOS/INDI with the AstroBerry, my assumption was that all the configuration would be stored on it because its connected directly to the scope, but INDI appears to network well enough that I guess that doesn't matter.

Thanks for any suggestions!

The INDI device configurations are stored in the ~/.indi directory. Did you create a symlink for that as well?

Well , it does store all the configuration on the raspberry - in /home/astroberry/.indi (INDI drivers) and /home/astroberry/.local/share/kstars (KStars) but only if you connect to Astroberry as a remote desktop (over VNC or via web browser).
If you start KStars from your PC/Mac INDI drivers configuration is on raspberry (as above) but KStars configuration (and Ekos profile) is saven on your PC/Mac.
