The problem: When I right click on a server file and hit "View/Edit", anytime I modify the file I get a prompt in Filezilla:
Code: Select all
A file previously opened has changed: (filename) Upload this file back to the server?
My workflow would be this:
-Right click on a file on the remote server.
-Edit the file, save
-Filezilla would automatically upload the file
-When I'm done, I just close the editor. Since the file is in the temp dir, it wont be further modified by any other file. When filezilla closes, it can delete all "View/Edit" files in the temp folder.
I understand this is risky, so I think this should definitely be an option in the settings. In the previous thread, botg said that these dialogs are necessary to avoid data loss, especially that Filezilla can't determine when a file is done being edited. To assist this, I'd suggest that Filezilla automatically waits a certain amount of time (1 second) after a modification, then checks again. If no more modification, upload. If there have been, wait another second, repeat. This wont handle things like files that are updated continually by other programs, but it will be fine for hand-edited files that are saved infrequently (which is really what this suggestion would be useful for).
I'd suggest that the option would be on the dialog.
Code: Select all
A file previously opened has changed: (filename) Upload this file back to the server? [x] Always upload this file during this session.
Again, I think this is an advanced feature that would be very appreciated. I think it is a risky feature for newbies or those not aware of its limitations. But I also think that this suggestion would allow advanced users to use it, while still not causing problems for ignorant users.
Please be polite in your responses. That should go without saying, but a lot of the users in the previous thread decided to start name-calling instead of discussing the problem at hand. Let's keep it civil.
