One two different occasions, now, I’ve had scripts disappear on me, basically like what has happened to others in this thread:
One was a script that I wrote, then more recently was the “Cards” script that came with Pythonista which I was not altering yesterday when it seems to have disappeared. Both times this occurred on a day that I was working on Pythonista with an external, Bluetooth enabled (Windows oriented) keyboard on my iPhone, ios 7.0.4. I have not used my external keyboard much just yet, but I plan on using it frequently when my iPad arrives in the near future.
Is there a solution to stop this? (Besides not using the external keyboard which I am fond of.)
In a prior life when I was working on large models in Excel and I worked with some numbskulls who would accidentally delete or blowup the models on the shared drive (and save the changes) I got in the habit of sending a copy of the model at the end of the day to my email, after saving it on the shared drive, so that I had it saved in two different channels. In this spirit, is there a script available that I could run that would grab all of my scripts and export all of them to a GitHub account or an email draft? (Or perhaps grab all of the code in all of the scripts and convert it into one large PDF which I could email to myself.)
Archiving is something I am able to do fine for files individually right now, but I am wondering about something systematic to basically backup all scripts at once at the end of the day. I suspect that such a script is something I may be able to do myself, though I have barely progressed beyond the clueless stage in Python so far, so it’s a bit out of reach at present.
Otherwise, I think the app is great, and it is proving to be quite excellent for use at home and when I am waiting for a train or bus to show up. Many thanks.
