  1. Hello, I recently built a new computer, and i want to be able to work on bukkit plugins and such on my laptop/desktop and be able to switch onto my laptop/desktop and have the files automatically sync up. Ive been able to somewhat do this, but its very messy and doesn't always work. Anyone know how to do this using dropbox or another plugin/application? Help is much appreciated! Thanks!

    Simple. If you're using Eclipse, just set up its workspace inside a Dropbox folder. Works like a charm for me.

    I have all my projects in Dropbox, so I can access them on my Ipad, phone or computer.

    Why have I never thought of this! That would have saved me a lot of time!

  5. Thank you everyone! I think I had it before I was just expecting a little to much. I've still got to manually import new projects. But it works and works great! I plan on making a blog or how to thing for this since it is extreamily time saving and useful and I haven't found a good explanation of it yet.

    Note that it you work on two or several computers and use Dropbox as the Eclipse workspace, Eclipse often complains about "resource being out of sync", after you switch the PC. A simple F5 (for each file which it complains about) fixes this. Sometimes it also is necessary to navigate on project's top level and choose "refresh", to fix building.
  7. You could also use gitHub for syncing projects between different computers.
    Github is also a very widely used sourcecode sharing tool, which every developer should know how to use.
