Discussion and bug reporting for the Text Input Recovery Extension


Postby TheManticore » Wed May 09, 2018 1:16 pm

First off, thanks for creating a functioning equivalent to Lazarus (at least in my mind). :)
I only really have one question/suggestion so far.
TIRE seems to store every input based on page title, but doesn't really have a function to assign a TTL (time to live) for stored objects.
As I frequently write, this can get problematic quickly (the amount of data builds till TIRE brings Chrome to a standstill on some of my forms).
Is there a way to set a cutoff on object age? (as in, throw out any objects more than three days old).

I hope I am making sense here.

That's a good idea. Currently the only way to delete stored items is to select them in TIRE Options > Pages > Saved pages then click 'Delete selected'. In a future release, I'll add a timestamp to the saved object to allow for purging by age.

In the meantime, of course, you can utilize the whitelist/blacklist to minimize the number of pages TIRE saves, thus reducing the impact TIRE has on Chrome. Any page or domain can be whitelisted/blacklisted on the fly by right-clicking the TIRE toolbar icon and selecting the appropriate menu item.

Thanks Chuck!

Ideally, an option where TIRE could automatically purge objects more than X days old would be great.
I use TIRE to protect against browser crashes while I am working with documents online, generally, I only need to protect what I am working on at any given moment. So setting a three day TTL is more than enough for what I do, I am certain I'm not the only use case for something like that. ;)
