[Tutorial] How to sync reading progress in Foliate ebook reader?

I use Foliate ebook reader to read epub files.

My books are stored in the same directory structure across different computers (including same partition mount point). I want to sync my reading progress. How to do that?

I am using MEGAsync to sync my reading progress. But you can modify the method appropriately to use another sync client.

I created a directory foliate_progress in MEGA.

Then, I moved ~/.local/share/com.github.johnfactotum.Foliate to /path/to/MEGAsync/foliate_progress.

mv ~/.local/share/com.github.johnfactotum.Foliate  /path/to/MEGAsync/foliate_progress/

I ran the MEGAsync client to sync it.

Finally I symlinked this folder back to its original location.

ln -s  /path/to/MEGAsync/foliate_progress/com.github.johnfactotum.Foliate /home/username/.local/share/com.github.johnfactotum.Foliate

Do this in all your computers. Afterwards, run MEGA to sync the progress.
