Assets no longer appear in editor


#21

We should’ve fixed the issue. Can you please check to confirm :slight_smile: ?


#22

Yup - seems to work now. Thanks for that.

Just to confirm - these assets will persist on your CDN indefinitely? Or are they wiped periodically? In other words - can I reference those URLs & expect them to be valid through June?

Thanks again


#23

We don’t currently remove or expire any of the assets you upload. Of course for the future we can only guarantee that the assets listed in the assets file won’t be deleted :slight_smile:


#24

Hi guys -
Alllll of my assets are once again gone… did some kind of regression happen here?
Thanks again for your help.


#25

This happened because you added .glitch-assets to your .gitignore today. It’s a bug that this makes them disappear, but you really don’t want to ignore that file. The bug should be fixed in a few minutes.


#26

Hi Tim - We didn’t make any edits to .gitignore until the files disappeared (.glitch-assets has been in there for some time… at least since the bug was fixed the last time around). I did remove .glitch-assets once the bug reappeared.

I can just keep the .glitch-assets in my repo - no problem - but is it going to be possible to restore the existing assets to the project?

Thanks again


#27

Ah, I see. I was looking at it backwards. I restored the assets. I also added a .env file to your project for now - we have an editor bug that doesn’t like projects without that file. I should have that fixed this morning, so you can delete the file tomorrow if you like.


#28

Thanks Tim -
I noticed a .lesshst file was added as well - can that be added safely to gitignore or should we avoid using gitignore all together?


#29

You should be fine using .gitignore. I wouldn’t add .glitch-assets to it, because that’s a file you would like to keep the history of. I just misunderstood what caused your problem yesterday - I thought it was adding .glitch-assets to .gitignore that had messed things up. .lesshst is exactly the kind of thing you want in .gitignore. I fixed the .env issue too, so you can delete that now.


#30

We’re running into this bug with this project (https://glitch.com/~ultra-rutabaga) two of the earlier uploaded assets aren’t listed, but are served up just fine when showing the webpage.


#31

What are the names of the files you aren’t seeing listed?
