Sonal, this is similar to Jozef's solution in the comments above also.

This is not a duplicate. He is asking about a screensaver, not the desktop wallpaper.

Jozef, good idea. I did a variation of that: paused Dropbox sync, changed the perms to my user on the encfs folder for Spotlight (but not the contents), started Dropbox sync to sync that folder, then went into the Dropbox settings and ignored it using Selective Sync. That seems to be working (including on my other machines, where the folder shows up empty). If you write that up as an answer, I can mark it correct.

comment How can I write a vim foldexpr which is equivalent to foldmethod=indent?
@blueyed, I'm afraid not. I put this project on hold for the time being. Would be interested to hear if you have any success.

@NikitaKouevda, I didn't know you could escape spaces like that. That works too. If you state that as answer, I'll mark it correct.

Accepted as the answer as this seems the simplest.
