Detect file updates and update preview / edited version in realtime
Put your TagSpaces projects into a Dropbox, Drive, or Box folder and they sync fine between devices.
But if the file changes on disk due to editing it on a separate device, the open TagSpaces app doesn't notice - the user's file preview doesn't change.
Worse still, if the user has it open for editing, leaves, edits it on another device, comes back, and closes it on the first device later, TagSpaces doesn't even warn them that the file on disk has changed, and they may lose all of their changes from the remote device.
This FR is for the following behavior:
1) Ideally, update an open document in the preview or Edit mode as soon as changes to the document on disk are detected. If the user has made unsaved changes in Edit mode, warn them and force them to pick a version to keep.
2) Less preferably, but still better than current functionality - update the preview immediately if the displayed file changes on disk, in Edit mode simply notify the user that the file on disk has changed (via status bar at the top or something), then let them choose whether to revert to the new version on disk or keep editing / save their in progress copy.
This would be great, with FTP/LAN/WEBDAV support!!
But what about the OwnCloud version. This should be usable from different devices shared or am i wrong??
