    Hi, Publii is one of the most interesting projects I've seen in a while in this space. Before I dive in there's one specific thing I need to know: does Publii have any concept at all of 2 way or bi-directional syncing?

    The scenario: I'm the tech support for Mom, Dad, Uncle Joe and .... who all want to write for the web and don't want to use Blogger, Wordpress.com et al. I'm looking for a tool like Publii where I can do a few things to get them set up and then launch their boat off to sea. They would then post to their hearts content without me and I check in a couple of times a year, update some stuff, tweak some things, and then off they go again.

    Can Publii be set to "download what's new and changed" from the publish place or would have to rig my own out-of-band system of getting them to bundle up their `%APPDATA%\Publii` and send it to me? (Which would be not that hard, going back the other way though... Eeep!)

    HI Matt,

    You can share  website files via e.g. Dropbox and thanks to this have the website up to date on all your devices https://getpublii.com/docs/publii-on-multiple-computers-via-dropbox.html

    This year we will work into this area, our  plan is  to implement a parallel editing for multiple users https://getpublii.com/roadmap/

    Thanks Bob. It's encouraging to see parallel editing there and early on the road map.

    In the meantime, if I boil the Dropbox scenario to it's pith:

    • Everything about a site is stored in  `%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Publii\sites` (windows path). Make that folder and all it's contents available to any other user or device and they/it can publish as well.
    • Staying clear of conflicts is outside scope of Publii's control. S/he who saves list wins.

    Does that capture it?

    Hi Matt,

    At this moment parallel work does not enter into play, but thanks to rewritten SQLite engine it will work very well ( I think soon) - you will be able to create the post and at the same time, your friend - both of the articles will synchronize at the end of work.
