Is it possible to export blueprints?


Is it possible to export blueprints?
I have set up a kick ass environment on my iMac during the weekend, but i would like
to have the blueprints on my Macbook aswell.

Is it possible in some way to export/import blueprints or at least migrate them?

Kind regards

There isn’t a way in the interface but it’s still really easy to do.

To move/copy Blueprints just go to ~/Library/Application Support/Local by Flywheel/blueprints and then copy the .zip(s) from there to the same folder on the other computer.

After you do that they’ll show up in the app :slight_smile:

This is definitely something we’ll be making easier in the future!


Awsome :slight_smile: that’s good enough for me.
Thanks for a really cool app, it really made my day yesterday (And today for that matter).

I would like to take it a step farther. I customized my linux container , I hope this is the right term, by adding vim-nox, git and compuser. When I made it a blueprint it did not keep my changes. Is there some way I can do this? I don’t mind getting my hands dirty.


Unfortunately there’s not a good way to do this right now but there are plans to make this possible through an add-on in the future :smile:

Hey Clay!

I have a big file blueprint (4GB), which I wanted to share with my fellows at work (through an external hard drive). The problem is that this blueprint is working great when is installed on my local computer but it’s not working when installed on another computer.

It’s a multi-site installation and only the main site works. Any subsite is getting a 504 Gateway Time-out.

Are you aware of any issues? Or should I be aware of any settings/options? (I’ve tried exporting the website but on import seems to get stuck in the analyzing archive phase).


Helllo Clay,

I cannot find ~/Library/Application Support/Local by Flywheel/blueprints
Has it been moved in the mean time?
Or does it work differently?


If you’re on macOS, the easiest way to navigate to the Local Blueprints folder is to:

  1. Open Finder
  2. Press Command + Shift + G (or go to Go » Go to Folder…)
  3. Enter the following into the text box ~/Library/Application Support/Local by Flywheel/blueprints
  4. Press Go

If you’re on Windows, Blueprints are stored under %AppData%\Local by Flywheel\blueprints. You can access that folder by pasting the path directly into the path bar in Windows Explorer.
