If you have Dropbox installed and want to use it to save your config files, that’s super easy.
On OS X, if you want an easy install, you can install Homebrew and do:
# Install Mackup brew install mackup # Launch it and back up your files mackup backup
If not running OS X, or you don’t like Homebrew, you can use pip.
Note: The below command will check if a previous version of Mackup is already installed on your system. If this is the case, it will be upgraded to the latest version.
# Install Mackup with PIP pip install --upgrade mackup # Launch it and back up your files mackup backup
You’re all set and constantly backed up from now on.
Next, on any new workstation, do:# Install Mackup brew install mackup # Launch it and restore your files mackup restore
You can find more detailed instructions in INSTALL.md.

What does it do
- Backups your application settings in a safe directory (e.g. Dropbox)
- Syncs your application settings among all your workstations
- Restores your configuration on any fresh install in one command line
By only tracking pure configuration files, it keeps the crap out of your freshly new installed workstation (no cache, temporary and locally specific files are transferred).
Makeup makes setting up the environment easy and simple, saving time for your family, great ideas, and all the cool stuff you like.
