There is a problem with that feature. Just think you are wring following code in your php file.
echo "Everything is fine at the moment";
But auto-saving feature was there, think that your file was saved when you only typed following…
So, If a user request this php file in this moment, php throws a syntax error. You may loss your visitors.
So, I recommend you to use a offline text editor and upload files via FTP.
Some Text Editors
- Sublime Text 3
- Notepad ++
Some FTP clients
Use one of those to manage your files.
However, I think it would be better if we had a feature in the file manager to save the file temporary in the local storage or save it with some other technology and make it available until the browser is closed. I’ll discuss this with our developers.
I’m thankful for you for your suggestion.
