Data Location

All the data Caido creates is stored in a single folder. The default location of this folder is dependent on your OS:

MacOS~/Library/Application\ Support/io.caido.Caido/


The log directory will contain the log files used to view output from the Coding Nodes using the SDK.


Currently, it is not possible to create Caido Projects outside this folder. However, you can change the location of the whole folder if needed.


Make sure to copy your existing data to the new location before restarting your Instance. Otherwise it will restart as if you were on a new device.

For the CLI, use the --data-path option:
