Configuration options

There are a few default configuration options you can override by putting them in the config.xml found in the hidden ~/.config/sparkleshare/ folder (%APPDATA%\sparkleshare\ on Windows).

These may change or may be removed at any time, so be careful if you plan to make any manual changes.

  <notifications>True</notifications> // Optional
