Storing Your Yojimbo Library on Dropbox

Similar to [backing up your 1Password library with Dropbox][1pass], comes in [this tip for Yojimbo][link]. Essentially the trick is to move your Yojimbo data to the Dropbox folder, then put up a symlink in the old folder location, like so:

>

mv ~/Library/Application\ Support/Yojimbo ~/Dropbox 
>ln -s ~/Dropbox/Yojimbo ~/Library/Application\ Support/

I don’t see why the technique employed here couldn’t work for any number of applications that use a centralized data store.
