Export to HTML5 - option to only update changed files

When exporting to HTML5, GDevelop exports the entire project, not just the files that have changed. This means that I end up SFTPing the entire project to my test website, even though more than half of the items (65 of 121) are graphics used in the game which haven’t been modified.

Not knowing how GDevelop does its magic, I need to ask if the following would be feasible:

  • add an option to the Local Folder export process that lets the user select full export or changed items only export.

If such a thing is feasible, exporting over a prior export would allow the SFTP client I use to only transmit the changed files saving time and bandwidth.

I suppose you can find a client that compares files and updates only the changes, like butler does on itch.io.
