File written to by the program not saving occasionally
Baconman321 (1103)

I have a program in Go that allows me to make and edit articles.

Sometimes, though the program won't save an edit of the article. The articles are stored via a .json file.

I have noticed that this usually happens if I close out of the window after it says it has successfully been edited, OR I close out of the computer. It always saves if I open the repl and check if it has been saved (as far as I know).

@tussiez told me that it was simply replit not saving sometimes, but I start to doubt that. It shows the edited article, but if I come back the next day the new edit is gone! It must be deleting the contents of the edit, but why? Also, how would I fix this?

Help would be appreciated.

@robowolf Yeah, but AFAIK ioutil.WriteFile doesn't have a close method :/

I think the method I use already closes it for me when it's done.

My friend did recommend to me that I should check if the contents of the file are edited. I just want to know what is going on...

It saves but the next day it is gone!
