Can We Save The Shelf Remotely?


The moving of the shelf from a global location to a sub-directory in the .idea directory has caused me problems for years.

I recently came across a few related issues which led me to an idea for a feature.

I was travelling and so pushed my work and cloned it on my laptop. Obviously, this didn't include the shelves.

I have also started to deploy a dev environment with Terraform which also caused problems as I didn't transfer the state.

The fix for Terraform is to use remote storage:

This then reminded me of the IDEA feature of storing settings remotely:

What if we extended the remote settings feature to include synchronising the shelves?
