Upload Changed Files + IdeaVim Plugin Follow
Looking for some suggestions on my "save file workflow".
I have the awesome IdeaVim plugin installed.
When editing a file, I save it with :w as per typical vi. The saving goes perfect.
My problem is that I want to have the file automatically uploaded to the server.
My remote server is configured, and everything is syncing fine.
Yet, if I go Tools --> Deployment --> Options
In there, mid-way, there is a setting: Upload changed files automatically to the default server: Always///On explicit save action (Ctrl+S)///Never
If you choose Always, the IDE is uploading ALWAYS.
If a small change is done, the IDE will upload.
Bad for my specific usage because: Sometimes I am uploading some files that are constantly watched by, say nodemon or pm2.
As soon as they see a change in the files, they restart my application on the server.
So I try to cut down on this with:
Tools --> Deployment --> Options --> Upload changed files automatically to the default server: On explicit save action (Ctrl+S)
If I hit Ctrl+S, the IDE then uploads superbly.
Yet if I do IdeaVim's :w to save, it does not trigger the "auto upload".
Any thoughts on what I could try?
