I know (at least as of 8.1) you can reconfigure the scan rate at startup time with the
ignition.projects.scanFrequency definition in your ignition.conf file, but is there a way to temporarily pause scanning just while doing some external operation that might temporarily put the projects directories in a weird state?
I’m looking for some way to do some git commands without having to stop or restart the server, and only have it scan and use the new files once I have had a chance to validate the git changes worked cleanly.
Yes, I know the proper method is to do all the changes on a separate copy of the git repo and make it so the server can just be pulled forward to that new commit. But, I’m in a weird spot with a development server that the projects directory is an uncommitted mess but I also would rather not have to stop serving projects from it while cleaning it up. (Trying not to bump a long-running test…)
