Feature: Code Snapshot (plugin?)

Feature: Code Snapshot (plugin?)

Postby mando on Sat Dec 01, 2012 12:49 am

Hi, is there a plugin available that will take a 'snapshot' of the state of my current code, so I can continue to play around with other stuff and I can then revert back to the snapshot state? i tried google but nothing came up.

Thank You!

You don't know about version control stuff like git, svn do you?

As prmaple pointed out, this is a reason version control is used. If you feel like diving into it, I recommend something like git or mercurial, as you can create a local repository on your machine. However, if you do not want to mess with the version control stuff, you may want to skim through this post (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8271) which provides a couple plugins for non version controlled backups. I've never used them before, so I am unsure how well they work, but it might be a good resource for you.
