Firstly, let me say that beets is a wonderful tool that is letting me put order in my music collection.
My question is as follows. My music library sits on a NAS, which I then mount on a desktop (linux) and a laptop (macOS). The contents are the same (they both point to the same network share), but the mount path is differerent. macOS insists on mounting drives in
/Volume/, and my home directory is in
/Users/myname, whereas in Linux, my home is
/home/myname and the network share is pretty much wherever I feel like it.
I would like to keep the beets database on both machines in sync as I change fields and add music. What’s the best way of doing this? I could mount the network share in a similar place on Linux (make a
/Volume/ directory to mount in), but would copying the contents of
.config/beets between machines work? Or would some sort of syncing script be required?
