Configuration tool


Sardine is shipping its own configuration tool, named sardine config. Typing sardine config in your terminal will open a configuration helper tool :) Using it, you can finetune your Sardine experience. Please note that Sardine is writing configuration files to a specific location depending on the OS you are using:

  • Windows: in the %APPDATA%/Local/Bubobubobubobubo/Sardine folder.
    • to get there: Win+R -> type %appdata% and press Enter
  • MacOS: ~/Library/Application Support/Sardine
  • Linux: ~/.local/share/Sardine/

The path leading to the configuration folder can be printed out by typing print_config() from inside your typical Sardine session. How convenient :) You can also manage to print the PATH to your configuration folder directly from the configuration tool.

There are three main files you can tweak to configure Sardine:

  • config.json: the main configuration file.
  • default_superdirt.scd: the default configuration for the audio engine.
  • a file that will be runned automatically everytime you start Sardine.

You may (or may not) also see a couple of other folders:

  • synths/ folder (to store SuperCollider synthesizers as .scd files)
  • buffers/ folder (used by the web editor, storing .py files).
