Anki 2.1 ONLY Still experimental. When things go wrong, use the back-backup created at C:\Users\(your user name)\addonBackup_backup.tar.xz! It stores your addon21 folder before the backup restore. Dump its contents to your addon folder (Accessible via Anki menu Tools>Addons>View Files>(go to parent folder addon21) Simple addon backup & sync system. You can backup your addon settings. These backups are stored alongside your notes, so after you sync your desktop Anki with AnkiWeb, you can use those backups to reinstall add-ons you've previously use. How to restore your backup 1. Sync your collection< 2. Download & install this addon 3. Restart Anki 4. Addons & addon configurations will be installed. 5. If you see a popup with text [addonBackup] READ CAREFULLY, READ IT, and press OK & YES. (This happens if you installed the addon before you synced. How to create a backup 1. Install this addon. 2. (For first install) If something popups, READ AND UNDERSTAND IT, and press OK & No 3. (For n-th install) Read the popup and follow instructions. 4. (If nothing popups, or you cleared away the popups.) Your addons are being backup. Inspired by VSCode settings sync Github: https://github.com/phu54321/anki_plugins Donate:

I really like what this add-on is trying to achieve, but I can't seem to get it to work. On computer 1, I've successfully backed up and synced all the add-ons and configurations. However, when I log into computer 2, and synced + restarted Anki, there's no change in add-ons at all. I still see the same pop-up window with the instructions... Running Anki 2.1.35 in both instances.

Can't find the "contact author" link so I'll just write it here instead. I backed up my add ons on my laptop, but they arent showing up on my desktop when I install the add on onto my desktop.I could use help and am willing to pay. I will change the rating when you respond. Thanks.

a Very useful addon,
I have a little question, I've already made a backup for my addons, and now I want to update that backup, because I have added some new addons.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the AddonBackup but it shows me a popup that asks me to download from my previous backup. I don't want download from the previous backup, I just need to update it, what should I do??
I read the description of AddonBackup, but I couldn't understand it well.

Don't reinstall addonbackup. addonbackup automatically tracks your addon updates if it were issued on the same PC.

It doesn't work if you're using more than 2 desktop Ankis concurrently. It works if you need to switch from one to other.

Best app ever!

Recently got a Surface Pro, and was dreading having to manually add all the Add Ons present from my old computer, but which were really needed - to the point where I wouldn't review my decks until I transferred all my add-ons over.

This did all of that, and in just a few clicks.

Thanks man!

Very cool idea! Seems to be working fine from my cursory tests so far.
