Set database location in Terminal app?

I can’t seem to find this in the docs anywhere: I installed the desktop Linux version and managed to set the location where database.sqlite is stored, but would like to at least try out the terminal application. However, I can’t figure out how to start up Joplin in a terminal using that location – somehow I was anticipating a config file that would do this as well, but I can’t seem to find document for this either, which puzzles me,

Hello, and welcome.

Try it with

joplin --profile path/to/profile

Yeah, it might not be documented IIRC.

awesome! thanks – & yeah, even if you can put it in the “joplin help” stdout, would be helpful.

That's because it is not officially supported.
