Recovery Buffer?

Does Bike have a recovery buffer for not-yet-saved text, in case of a freeze or crash?

Bike uses the macOS standard autosave system.

That system is all part of the Cocoa frameworks, so I don’t know how it works at code level, but generally:

  • It autosaves unsaved documents to a private file in app container.
  • It autosaves both unsaved and saved documents “frequently”. I’m not sure how frequent it does it, but seems on order of seconds.
  • Autosaves happen over the current document. Use the File > Revert to menu to browse older versions of that file.

Hope that answers your question.
