Migration Guide

There are two ways to migrate data from Insomnia to Insomnium.
  1. In Insomnia, use the GUI button Export files from the "Insomnia" Project under Perference/Data to export files (e.g. to your ~/Downloads).

    After that, open Insomnium and import these files using the Import to the "Insomnium" Project button under its Perference/Data.
  1. Use the terminal directly.


cp -r ~/.config/Insomnia ~/.config/Insomnium
# or 
cp -r $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/Insomnia $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/Insomnium


cp -r ~/Library/Application\ Support/Insomnia/*.db ~/Library/Application\ Support/Insomnium/


cp -r "%APPDATA%\Roaming\Insomnia" "%APPDATA%\Roaming\Insomnium"

Feel free to open a discussion on github (opens in a new tab) if anything werid happens.

From Insomnia's documentation:

Insomnia stores data in the following location, depending on the platform:

  • %APPDATA%\Roaming\Insomnia on Windows

  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/Insomnia or ~/.config/Insomnia on Linux

  • ~/Library/Application\ Support/Insomnia on macOS

(On Mac, you can open the parent folder by navigating to Help > Show App Data Folder in Insomnia)
