Is there any reason why we can't have an option to allow us to simply add the needed TWS files to an existing directory? In other words, I already have a git controlled directory on my system that I was using something like Visual Code to work with. Now I want to switch to (or try) using TWS for the same project. What I want is an option that says "Add TWS to existing directory" that will leave all of the files in that directory as is, but then just add whatever files TWS needs. Your init code should leave things in the existing directory alone.
Thank you for your question.
You could add the needed TWS files to an existing directory. After this, you just need to use the "Refresh project according to sources" functionality to reflect source changes in the project.
I hope it should help to resolve your case.
Please let me know if this would help you.
How exactly do I "add the needed TWS files to an existing directory"? What are the files that TWS needs?
I have a project in a git reposititory that I have been using Visual Code for develeopment and now I want to test using TWS. So on my local system, I have the following directory structure (as an example):
Now I want to test TWS to compare it to how VC works, while maintaining the git layout that already exists. Which option do I select to see the data in TWS correctly, without moving or altering the existing data?
As I understand it, if I select 'Create project newar my sources', TWS will copy things from where they are into new directories, thus breaking git.
Am I missing an option or exactly what steps should I take to be able to test TWS in this scenario? (note, I too am on a Mac).
