Store thousands of snippet files in a single compressed one (or a db) within Alfred.alfredpreferences


Recommended Posts

If you use some emoji snippet package or something similar, you get thousands of json files in your Alfred.alfredpreferences file. This complicates backup/sync as filesystems don't deal with a lot of little files very well, so e.g. intstead of an instant copy of you preferences it takes some time

This might also slow down/increase memory consumption for cloud sync as afaik they also aren't very efficient with a lot of tiny files


And for such imports the files never change, so you don't benefit from not having to waste time redownloading the whole pack on a tiny change


So maybe instead Alfred could by default store each snippet pack as a single database file or a compressed folder of little files?
