OH MY GOD!
I’m loving the new “Sync to File” flag on the text DAT. It’s something that I’ve worked around for ages, and this is a huge addition for working with external files.
Some humble requests to connect with here:
- Can this same feature be added to the file in DAT and table DAT?
- It’d be great to see this same feature on the file in CHOP as well
- with a little bit of limited testing I can see that if I’m working with an extension, if the external file is updated the extension will re-init as long as I’m looking at the component, or inside of the component, but if I’m in another part of my network there’s a good chance the extension won’t re-init. When I’ve rolled a solution from scratch I’ve used tags to indicate if a file is an extension, then reinitialized the ext on the parent() component when a file update was detected. It would be phenomenal if that piece was also handled here - so that I can work in a text editor and know that when I save the components using that file as an extension will have their class objects reinitialized.
HUGE thanks to the Derivative team for adding this feature - IMO this is a tremendously significant addition. Many many thanks.
