Add auto save while file editing


#1

I just wrote few lines of code and just when i clicked save button session expired :frowning:
Please add auto save option so when session expires no data loss will occur.Will anyone happily write code again if file gets closed without notice??Many times this is happening,you can add counter when session is going to expire or add auto save option in code editor.

Hi @vicky_r

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…

echo "E

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 ++
  • Atom

Some FTP clients

  • FIle Zilla
  • Cute FTP

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. :slightly_smiling_face:

Happy Webmastering!
