How create autosave in komodo editor

I don’t talk about the auto-backup but the real autosave that just saves your files progressively when your write new code.

This feature doesn’t exist but you could easily write a user script that saves your file periodically. The follow code will save your file ever 5 seconds after your last key press.

var _ = require("contrib/underscore");

var debounce_saveMyFile = _.debounce(
    () =>{require("ko/views").current();},
//window.removeEventListener("editor_text_modified", debounce_saveMyFile);
window.addEventListener("editor_text_modified", debounce_saveMyFile, false);

When creating the Userscript make sure you set it’s Trigger property to “On Startup”. If you manually run it you need to uncomment that second to last line.

After having to use PHPStorm for a client project I really got used to the auto save. Thanks for this little script it works great. I do prefer Komodo. Its a great tool for me.
