I spent some time looking for a solution to change the location of Visual Studio Code’s
settings.json file without any luck.
But I found a solution.
Visual Studio Code’s settings JSON file is always located at the same path.
The way I worked around this limitation is by creating a symbolic link from this path to another file. In my case, I place
settings.json on a Dropbox folder that is synchronized across my computers.
ln -s \ ~/Dropbox/settings/vscode/settings.json \ ~/Library/Application\ Support/Code/User/settings.json
