How to locally save squirrel files in impcentral


#1

Is there a way to save code from impcentral to a local file? I want to be able to save certain iterations of code for later without having to dig through the revisions and there doesn’t seem to be a good way to do that in the IDE itself unless I’m missing something.

You’d use the impt command line tool for this (or the sublime text integration, which allows you to work easily on multi-file projects locally and push them to the cloud for build & distribution).

I’m not the expert on those so I’ll leave it to someone else to give you details though :slight_smile:

And I might add that, for Mac users, there’s Squinter which delivers the impCentral API functionality through a GUI rather than the command line.
