"Auto push on save" for files not edited by DW

"Auto push on save" is very convenient. But there are types of files that DW does not deal with. I would like to do (1) edit some files using other software (2) save the file to the directory that DW works (3) DW runs auto push. Is it possible?

Hi @Lemond2021 ,

 

Thanks for writing to us. The workflow mentioned is not possible with Dreamweaver 'Auto push on save' option since Dw will push the files edited in Dw only. We see 'File Synchronization' feature would perform the workflow you are looking for where new files or file content changes will be listed in a dialog for review before pushing all the required files/folders to the server. PFB the article for more info on File synchronization feature.

 

KB article: https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/user-guide.html/dreamweaver/using/synchronizing-files.ug.html

 

Have a pleasant day!

 

Regards,

Nayan

"We see 'File Synchronization' feature would perform the workflow you are looking for where new files or file content changes will be listed in a dialog for review before pushing all the required files/folders to the server."

What does it mean? What is the difference from "Auto push on save for all files"?

Hi @Lemond2021 ,

 

File Synchronization workflow will list the edited or new files in comparision to local and remote server files. In this case, after you edit the file using other software, you can switch to Dw and perform File synchronization to see the files listed are the right set of files and click Ok to push all the files to the server at once. This workflow will have to be done as and when you need to push the files but will not be auto pushed to the server.

 

Thanks,

Nayan

nope unfortunnaly Dreamweaver doesn't propose any watch function.. but you can set a grunt, gulp or any npm runner for that purpose

 

well, I just google the subject to find out a tutorial,

so here are some tracks where you can start from

or

Can it be it is because I put these files in MS OneDrive? DW works but it may be that it causes some problems for Winscp. Can it happen?

Why don't you ask Microsoft?

This is NOT a DW question.

in fact Nancy, we just look for a workaround to a feature that DW don't provide, so finding a solution should help Dreamweaver to stay tuned, don't you think ?... at least that is the way I see this thread 😉

Right.  But the facts don't change:

a) DW does not keep track of files that are updated by outside editors. 

b) Cloud drives like DropBox and OneDrive have never played nice with DW.

c) For best results, your local site folder should reside on the primary hard drive. For example, C:\MyTestSite\.   After editing session ends, you can move your site folder to cloud drives if you wish.

That's not nor the point, nor the question... the main idea is to get a push on save

perhaps, but it plays... 🙂

check what your network path is on the MS Drive... like 

 

\\drive\folder\website

 

and create a net use on that (link provide in the previous comment)... creating for example on a disk named x: and point to this disk with the FTP client

well, it all depends on the type of path you use to define the access of the folder to monitor, to the tool that automates the task(s)...

 

In previous post, I suggested gulp, grunt... or any other NPM runner... but you choice Winscp, and Winscp must also use a similar mechanism.


Many of these types of tools do not accept UNC paths. These are the paths that are in the form of

 

\\server\folder

 

and that the way, that generally we define access to network-accessible parked spaces from windows


it is thus often necessary to specify a Windows absolute path instead, in the form

 

driveLetter:\folder 

 

so to convert a UNC path into a windows absolute path... you launch the command console and type

 

net use x: \\{the path to your network shared space}

 

(I choose X as drive letter, but you can choose any letter that you want, and that windows doesn't already use)


from now on the access to your space can be done by typing 

 

x:\folder

 

and that's all there is to it, at least it works for me with a different file hosting service and synchronization service.

 

when you want to remove the alias access you just go back to the comman console and you type

 

net use x: /d
