I using my Dropbox to sync my config files on different machines. In addition my Dropbox is synced with encfs. encfs mounts a volume with the decrypted Dropbox-folder on startup. This process takes a while. This is not a problem for config files like
.bashrc or something because I am not using this programs directly during startup. I just use a simple
cd && ln -s DecryptedDropbox/.vimrc
to link them. And
.vimrc is available as soon as the decrypted Dropbox is mounted.
However, I use some config files which are important for the startup process like config files for my windowmanager i.e.
Would it be possible to local version of
.i3 on my hard drive that syncs with Dropbox as soon as it is available? Of course I also want the Dropbox version changed if I change the local version. I think hard links would not work here since there not really to copys of my file, right? Any other ideas? rsync?
