Change location of bank.db

Registered by spencerrecneps on 2010-08-13

I'd like to specify where my bank.db file is located (so that I can share the same db across different user accounts)

Whiteboard

2010.08.15 mrooney: There's a FAQ which I think addresses this somewhat: https://answers.launchpad.net/wxbanker/+faq/1261 . This way you could link it to a shared directory and all accounts could access it. I could allow a setting to specify the location but you still have to change that setting per user or machine, so I'm not sure that that gains any simplicity or less configuring over the aforementioned method. What do you think?

2010.08.21 spencerrecneps: I hadn't noticed that faq posting, but this is the solution that I ultimately settled on. It works well for me because I know the command line well enough but it's probably not a very friendly solution for non-techies.
