Autosave not working


#1

I have found that suddenly, yesterday, autosave stopped working in all of my workspaces on cloud9. I had not change any settings. I also could not find where in preferences or settings I could turn it back on.


#2

Please find the setting to enable autosave in the experimental tab under preferences. The feature causes conflicts in some cases which is why we have downgraded it to experimental.


#3

Excellent! Thank worked, @javruben. I really appreciate your zooooom response!


#4

Thanks for the information – is there somewhere we can read the details of the conflicts so those of us who have reenabled it know what to watch for?


Autosave and user config
#5

The conflict I was referring too specifically relates to collaboration and the possibility that autosave can get in the way of collaboration with the possibility of the latest changes being reverted.


#6

What if autosave was reprogrammed to disable itself if 2 or more people connect to the same workspace?


#7

That could work. The code is here: https://github.com/c9/c9.ide.save/blob/master/autosave.js

as part of the sdk https://github.com/c9/core

We’ll gladly accept a pull request!
