Where NetNewsWire 4.0 stores app data

Software

Every post I’ve read claims NetNewsWire stores its data here:

~/Library/Application Support/NetNewsWire/

It does not. Or at least, the latest version installed from homebrew-cask does not. Instead, it resides in a Mac sandbox here:

~/Library/Containers/com.blackpixel.netnewswire/

Putting here for reference, in case you were going crazy like me. Perhaps its to prepare for its sale on the App Store?

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
