Some of you want to start using Station on a different device without having to reinstall all your apps again. Or you are simply switching from a device to another. There is a cool trick to do that!

⚠️ Doing this does not mean Station will sync across devices. It's a one-off migration, changes to Station on one device won't appear on the other device.


On Mac

  1. Be sure to have the latest version of Station on both devices
  2. Quit the Station app completely on the source device
  3. Execute the following command in your "Terminal": zip -r ~/Station_db.zip ~/Library/Application\ Support/Station/db
  4. A zip file will be created in your "Home" folder - it is called "Station_db.zip"
  5. On the destination machine, launch Station and quit the app. No need to login.
  6. In Finder, Click on "Go" in the menu bar, then "Go to Folder..."
  7. Enter "~/Library/Application Support/Station/db"
  8. In this folder, copy the 3 files that are in the zip file that you generated from the source device (it will replace the old ones)
  9. Launch Station on the destination machine and log in. 

Voila! ✨

On Windows

  1. Be sure to have latest version of Station on both devices
  2. Quit the Station app completely
  3. In window search bar, type %appdata% & open the folder
  4. Open the Station folder

  6. On the destination machine, launch Station and quit the app. No need to login.
  7. In window search bar, type %appdata% & open the folder
  8. Open the Station folder
  9. In this folder, copy the 3 files that are in the zip file that you generated from the source device (it will replace the old ones)
