I have a .mackup.cfg file that looks like this:

But when I run mackup backup the .eslint file does not seem to get picked up. I have confirmed the target file and config files are where they should be:

Any thoughts?

!!!THERE IS NO NEED TO DO THIS!!! see this

for now:
step 1:

cat .mackup/app-name.cfg
[application]
name = app-name

[configuration_files]
.some-config-file-name
.some-dir

THERE IS NO NEED TO DO THIS

step 2:

cat .mackup.cfg
[applications_to_sync]
app-name

then , mackup backup can work out!

@lra, Shouldn't mackup backup the actual custom app config file created by the user that's used to sync configuration files? In @NewbMiao's example, the .mackup/app-name.cfg file.

One should omit step 2 or app-name will be the only app to be synced.

Syncing your custom files is explained in https://github.com/lra/mackup/tree/master/doc#add-support-for-an-application-or-any-file-or-directory.

So that's why Mackup wasn't working for me for the past almost half a year! Thanks a lot @mbaechtold.

@NewbMiao, please edit your answer so we won't have any more victims.

As reported in lra#869, the `[configuration_files]` section of the `.mackup.cfg` is not working as advertised in the `Configuration` chapter of the docs.

The users should be pointed to the section where the syncing of custom apps (and individual files) is explained until lra#869 has been fixed.

configuration_files only works for custom app cfg files. RotsiserMho#4 should also be ported to this repo.
