I have a site which has about 2000 images files in a folder. Opening this folder within a Wappler project was extremely slow (a minute or two). Closing the folder caused Wappler to freeze. I had to force quit Wappler. (I think this is the only situation where I’ve had to do this.). It wouldn’t close normally or via the system tray icon.
This happened a few days ago and I had forgotten about it. Unfortunately I did the same thing today with more serious results. Having force quit Wappler, it wouldn’t open again - the rotating logo just kept rotating. I force quit it again. I eventually managed to open Wappler by renaming the project folder. Wappler opened at the project screen and all was well when I chose a different project. I then closed Wappler, renamed the folder to its original name, and could then open the project again.
It’s probably not often necessary to view the contents of such large folders - I only opened it to check a subfolder within it. If it’s a problem for Wappler to view the contents of such large folders, it would be useful if a message could be displayed warning that the process will be slow or that it could cause problems.
I think all is well with this project but I’m having a minor problem with it which I’ll mention in another thread. It may be quite unrelated.
