Autosave folder


#1

Hi Jesse,

I noticed that TaskPaper puts its Autosave folder right inside the ~/Library/ folder. I’ve seen that other apps usually store autosave files inside the ~/Library/Application Support/AppName/ folder.

Wouldn’t this be ‘cleaner’? The Library is already quite messy.

This is all system defined behavior. I’m just opting into the autosave support that’s built into NSDocument. I’m not sure why location would be different for other apps, but maybe they are implemented there own custom autosave behavior.

I guess they opted to create their own folder (inside Application Support) to keep things separated from the other apps, and keep the main Autosave folder lighter. But I assume both solutions will work.
