Allow update of only specific SObject in OST

Issue #1014 resolved
Justin Julicher created an issue

Current you have 2 options to update the OST - All or All SObjects

It would be great if we could specify the object to be update to speed up that function if we have just updated an SObject via the web.

e.g. Update Specific Type

Then prompt for the metadata name.

    Thanks for logging, Justin. Interestingly there is a way to do this today, albeit indirect. Nonetheless, I use it pretty often. Assuming you have the latest version of the .object file that you want updated in your local project, just save that single file and you'll get a very selective OST update for that single object. So basically just navigate to that .object file, either refresh or retrieve it (depending on whether you need to carefully merge it into what you have locally), and save it back to the server.

    Okay. I'll take this off my list. I'm actually considering a more holistic OST management improvement in the future where I check last modified times on the metadata used to generate the OST and only regenerate things that look out-of-date. That will likely not happen in the immediate future, but it's on my list of things to investigate.
