Any plugins to synchronize two computers with Cura?

You can use Extensions -> Cura Backups -> Manage backups to backup on one computer and restore on the other. But I guess you would like to have something that happens automatically? You could do that by using eg dropbox to sync the Cura configuration folder between the two computers. See Help -> Show configuration folder.

I put all my Cura config stuff in a git repo so that from time to time I can make a snapshot to go back to when the latest Cura decides to trash something (I work  on the bleeding edge). Of course, once the files are in a repo, it's easy to share the repo between computers.

I currently use GIT, but it's a pain because the order of parameters in a file is not deterministic. So you get big diffs when sometimes there haven't even been any changes. For this to work well, Cura would save its configuration files in a consistent way.

    Very good solution, Like that you can also manage files you don't want to save like the log file the compiled python file etc via the .gitignore , Very smart and clever I love it !
