Live Template Sharing

Hey is there any way to share live templates with other devs?

I started to use BitTorrentSync to synchronize the templates in ~/Library/Preferences/WebIde70/templates/ with other devs, but they have to restart phpstorm every time something changes. Is there any way to trigger a reload of the template files (or the whole configuration settings) in PHPStorm?

A different solution to have a common set of templates with other devs would also be suitable.

cheers

Hi there,

but they have to restart phpstorm every time something changes.

Do not change them (live templates) so often, I guess.

Is there any way to trigger a reload of the template files (or the whole configuration settings) in PHPStorm?

No. Settings are loaded on IDE start. If you modify settings file while IDE is running, it most likely will be overwritten on IDE exit (will be for sure if you modify those settings in IDE).

Maybe it's possible to do programmatically from within IDE (by writing your own plugin that would watch for some files/folders and reload (re-import) certain settings), but I cannot advise here, unfortunately.
