auto-save option in Kate

Mon May 21, 2012 12:39 pm
Please introduce auto-save option in Kate in custom given time space like every minute or two.
It was asked for ten years ago:

Even if it is not a priority for Kate developers it would be great to have this option someday.

This auo-save feature is already in Kjots. Can't you just copy paste some code to Kate to make it work?

At least in my case, I feel that an autosave feature would be useful as I often forget to save my program before I run it to test the program. Then I'm confused for a second when I run the program since the program hasn't changed its output in any manner, and then I realize that I forgot to save.

tl;dr Autosave would be really useful

Thanks for reading.

same here. i know it's an old thread, but, i really want this too. i'm so used to constantly editing open documents, and walking away to do other little tasks, etc, that i had grown used to this functionality from gedit, and like it very much. fwiw, after searching around a bit, to see if this was already present, i noticed there are quite a few other people who would really like this as well.

BUT: please don't make it so that it REQUIRES those "backup file" thingies - the ones that use a tilde or whatever - i don't need or want that, and i have it disabled in kate already, so i'd like to be able to enable autosave, and, it just saves over the ONLY copy of the document, every $X number of minutes (i like to set it to every 1 minute).

i guess what would work best for every one is:
"auto-backup" (what you already have) OR "auto-save" OR "neither", as a mutually exclusive option.

thanks!
