Gaia Sky folders

In this documentation we will repeatedly refer to two different folders: $GS_DATA and $GS_CONFIG. Their location is specified below.

Linux

As of version 2.8.0, the Linux release of Gaia Sky uses the XDG base directory specification.

  • $GS_DATA = ~/.local/share/gaiasky/
  • $GS_CONFIG = ~/.config/gaiasky/

Windows and macOS

Windows and macOS use the old .gaiasky folder in the user home directory for both locations, so:

  • $GS_DATA = $GS_CONFIG = [User.Home]/.gaiasky/
