Version control for settings

Posted · Version control for settings

I like to tweak my setting often however this sometimes ends up  in changing something too much, at which point I would like to go back to setting say for a specific model or date or set of settings. It seems the best way to do this would be to have proper version control instead of having a million profiles with the names like: final_new_new_lastfinal

 

Has someone created a plugin like this? Or at least something similar?

 

Also are is there any documentation on the process of creating/installing a plugin locally to test. I've tried adding the package folder (from these Example plugins) to the plugin folders of cura both at the install and in the appdata folder, but I cant seem to get them to showup

 

Thanks in advance

    Not as far as I know, but you could put your configuration folder (Help -> Show configuration folder) under version control. You may want to exclude Cura.log.

    The plugins folder in the aforementioned configuration folder (ie: in appdata) is the right place. Never change files in your program files Cura folder.

     

    The Example plugins need to be updated for Cura 4.4. They don't load because their "API version" is 6 instead of 7.
