    Hi,

    Is there a nice way to backup a Platform app's cloud code functions? Something other than a manual approach?

    They don't seem to be included with the Git export - or with the "export code to zip" option on the Platform Apps page.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    At the current stage you may consider the following approaches:

    - Save the cloud functions code locally and include them in source control. Subsequently you can manage the code of the functions in the backend project programmatically as explained here.
    - Duplicate the Backend Services project as explained here. The cloud functions will be available in the separate project

    On the same subject we have a feature request which you can see - http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/129/Feedback/Details/185715-version-control-for-cloud-code-and-cloud-functions

    Please consider to share your comments or considerations in the feedback item or in this forum thread.

    Many thanks Anton.

    I've added a comment to that feature request. In essence: 

    "A really nice thing about Platform is that can streamline 'whole-of-app' development (code on the phone + server-side/cloud code). Including cloud code in version control and backups would be another important improvement in this direction"

    And thanks also for your hint on handling cloud functions programmatically. Looks interesting.
