i setup 5 different repos from 5 different people .. i want to setup someone else's computer exactly like mine ... can i transfer this setup of directories, bookmarks, etc, from sourcetree, to someone else's computer?
We get asked this question quite often. The problem is that your bookmarks file is relative to the directory structure of that user. We use absolute paths rather than relative paths meaning they're seen as /Users/Ed/Some/Location. This does mean you could technically copy the bookmarks file and do a find/replace, but you'd also need the repositories in the same location as yourself, too.
The bookmarks file is in ~/Library/Application Support/SourceTree/browser.plist. If you've got an editor that can support this (it's just XML) then you can open it up and see the paths. Copying this file and using it as a basis will help, then as I say, just do a find/replace and copy over the repositories and technically it should work fine.
Hope that helps
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
