I keep trying to use the Glitch service but the “auto-save” feature continues to be the bane of my existence.
I can’t stress enough how badly I want a real SAVE feature, and how much I detest auto-save.
Today I started a new project, forking from the SQLite poll demo project. I made various edits, and I’ve got roughly 3-4hours of tinkering into it… then all of a sudden my code view doesn’t match the rendered view… the rendered view is from about an hour ago in my code, and no amount of hard reloading is showing the new code.
Fine, I close down the editor tab, walk away, curse under my breath that the auto-save feature is still broken.
After dinner and a nice long walk, I log back in (different computer, just to make sure)… and there’s my project… showing me the code from an hour or so before my last edits… and all the new content is gone.
Ok, no worries, there’s a timeline feature now… I’ll just slide back to where the code was last correct, and “rebase” to that point. Nope! no sign of my working, updated code edits at all.
So, I’m determined… I have an idea I want to prototype out, so I’m going to try it again… but I needed to vent about this because it still hasn’t been fixed (ignoring that its a bad design (IMHO)).
Is there a way to trigger a specific, named snapshot? If not, can that be a feature so that we can perform a SAVE when we know we are at a point that we want to save?
