Feedback on AutoSavePlugin

Hi. I have been running twiki 4.1.2 on winxp sp2 and Active perl 5.8.8 for about a month. We use it as an internal knowledge base in our R&D dept. Its simply great piece of software. Thank you for developing it.

Most of the time i have faced issues like forgetting to save the doc. We usually create a topic and the edit pane is kept open till end of the day. During the course of the day we add things to the twiki just like we jot down things in a notepad. Now in case i forget to save (usually hapens since u concentrate more on work ;-).. ) progress for the entire day is lost.

If there was a autosave facility, such losses could be minimised.

That does sound like a useful feature. I could imagine this being done with js. Obviously, it would need to be done on client side.

This could be done with AJAX and the REST interface.

CheckpointSave is a manual alternative to auto-save.

See also AutoSave.

(I renamed this topic from AutoSavePlugin to AutoSavePluginDev since this is a discussion.)

This is good idea - and thanks Peter for checkin the initial version. I tried testing this on trunk branch - got following errors

| 2009-10-06 - 04:42 | Insecure dependency in open while running with -T switch at /var/www/trunk432/core/lib/TWiki/Store/RcsFile.pm line 793.

Also liked the approach of using Rest protocol.

A few more precautions we need to take: example - passing tokens between browser/server everytime to make sure to avoid cross site attack issue.

The TinyMCEPlugin that ships with the latest TWiki-6.0.0 release supports now auto-save and restore.

The AutoSavePlugin would still be useful to auto-save and restore raw edit text.
