Export/Import for User Settings



  • I miss an option for Vivaldi should have an option to export/import usersettings not only for bookmarks.
    This makes it quick and easy to use th same config on different machines.



  • @redqueen Actually there is a Sync called feature in the experimental status since 1.14 which does what you want. You can access it via vivaldi://experiments But please be aware that experimental means exactly that! Make some copies every now and then of your default folder which contains your bookmarks and other settings stuff just in case there'll be an error which might erase your data.
    Or you'll wait until sync is out of experimental and in a stable condition

    Setting are not all included in Sync yet, and even when they are and fully working, we will still need Import/Export, e.g. for making a backup before syncing.

    Not to mention that sync only works when you have an Internet connection.

    Yep - I forgot to mention that

    A browser without internet connection on the other hand has a very restricted field of usability though anyway?! ^^

    EDIT:
    @LonM Damn - that is indeed a good point...



  • @zaibon there is plenty of use for a browser without an internet connection. Local development and api documentation, Vivaldi's notes, service worker PWAs (eventually...), mail stored locally?
