.ini files are starting to spread too far and wide. What is the guidance for where add-ons (and built-ins) should locate initialization files? Or, where can I find that guidance?
I just installed an addon Gramplet for testing. It creates an .ini file popped up one level from the plugin itself, in the `gramps51/plugins` folder.
Some of the addons put
.ini files at that
The RestoreHist tool puts its
.ini within the tool’s
built-in and add-on View modes, custom filters, the Plugin Manager Enhanced, and Gramps itself put their
.ini files in the
CardView (in addition to the 3
.ini files for each added view mode) creates a ‘gramps51\templates’ folder for the per database .ini files.
reports, tools and recent files create
.xml files 1 level above the
gramps51 folder. The
temp and the
thumb folders are also created here.
