- What do you want to see in Hype?
Relative File Linking.
The idea is to have an option where we can tell Hype that the path written in the final js should be “relative” rather than absolute. Possibly achieved via a Right Click on the asset and a new option of “Relative File Location”. This would then write the path as local to the parent file. Granted if people had the parent file many steps out, it could be problematic. How to create the path in Hype might be achieved by having an additional dialog that allowed coding “…/folderName/fileName”.
The benefit comes from sites that share assets. For instance, in the example shown, the animated “Waving Pete” is used in other areas of the website. Updating the asset in a single location saves having to update multiple locations which removes the efficiency of shared assets.
Have you found a workaround for this problem?
Nope. As a Hype project generates a folder with linked assets. Of course, the changing of a file in that folder structure works similar to this feature request but this removed the efficiency of the request.
How high of a priority is this for you?
It would be nice to have and a time-saver.
