iCloud breaking multi-file projects
I've created multiple-file projects including classes and user interfaces that I use with my job. I thought that putting the source on iCloud would provide me with a kind of backup. Unfortunately, at the most inopportune time, some files will not appear as part of the project and I have to reimport them. The files exist in iCloud, but don't appear within Pythonista.
As a result, I can't rely on them to work when I need them. I would move them locally(can't copy them within Pythonista), but I fear the same thing is going to happen with a local source. If this happened locally, I fear losing the file entirely.
Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do to mitigate it? Would it be possible to run a script that would import the files so Pythonista can see them?
Thanks for your thoughts.

@IetyAnxed, if you want to back up ypur code, I would highly recommend using the Working Copy app to sync your code to a git repository. You get version control as a bonus and will avoid many iCloud hassles.
If your code is private, github these days gives small teams free private repos.
@mikael This was a great idea. I was able to use Working Copy to clone a repository in GitHub and commit my changes. It worked great. Thanks.
