    Description

      According to the XDG specification [1], there is a better way to store the user specific data of an application by dumping in new hidden folder in ~/.
      More information about it can be found [2]

      The specification defines places to store the data so that the user profile can be updated and moved properly while reducing some weird bugs.
      Those places would be ~/.local/ivy or ~/.cache/ivy and other (depending on the data stored)
