versioning system for files
does anyone have some inspiration on how to implement/use a versioning system.
That probably is like asking: what can be an easy and especially robust way to use the editorial editor as a (online through dropbox I assume) wiki system that can also be used from other code/desktop computers/theoretically other apps.
Would it be using an already tested and tried versioning system like git or something along the line ...
... or just create multiple files with version pre-/suffix and write a custom UI (ui module vs web-code and built in browser (because of course wiki comes from browser and rendering things like formulas would be handy sometimes I am sure)) I just feel like there are so many ways to go and would appreciate any one to chime in ... give thanks
Why not just use the fact that Dropbox already stores multiple versions of your files, and these are accessible both via Dropbox and via the Editorial UI (by clicking on the triangle to show the menu next to the file name in the editor, then clicking on the Dropbox logo)?
Because that doesn't work, at least for me. For every file, the only item in the menu when I click on the Dropbox icon is "Share Dropbox Link"; however, when I go to the Dropbox site, I can see all the previous versions for every file.
The Dropbox version browser is only available on iPad, are you using an iPhone? (otherwise, this sounds like a bug.)
Yes, I use an iPhone. That explains it, then.
It would be nice to be able to access previous versions directly from Editorial, hence marquito rises a valid point
