I installed Pidgin via Homebrew. I'm looking for config files such as accounts.xml and prefs.xml.

On Linux, I believe they're located in are in ~/.pidgin, and %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Pidgin on Windows.

I would expect them to be somewhere in /usr/local/Cellar/pidgin, but they're not, as far as I can tell.

All config files for pidgin reside in the (invisible) folder ~/.purple.
