Save current state of the buffer when editing a page, so in case the page is closed or the browser crashes, the work is not lost.
This would work better with a warning when the page has been changed since the time the draft was saved.
This is a killer feature! Most modern text processors (Google Docs, draw.io) support it.
There shouldn't be a 'save' button. I would rather prefer a text saying 'saved just now', 'saved 10 minutes ago' or 'Saving...' . The only button we would need is a button to publish, to avoid someone viewing the page seeing half a sentence.
@Interesting Stuff: I would not like an autosaving function but rather an auto save draft function.
Just lost some work on an article. This feature would be helpful if implemented in the future.
I looked around and there are apparently established methods for saving typed text to browser storage. Shouldn't be hard to put in.
@Speck of the Cosmos: browser storage would be a good idea!
Agreed. Just lost a bunch of typing because I was on my tablet and my browser page reloaded when I went back to it.
This is a feature everyone needs in production!
