When changing one file, all html files are regenerated

Issue #14 wontfix
Anonymous created an issue

Steps to reproduce

  • Set up the sample files
  • Add a phrase or two to the index.md file
  • Invoke poole.py --build
  • check Date Modified for each html file - they have all changed
  • This makes it hard to use e.g. lftp to upload files. I'm investigating rsync and other protocols that look for file checksum changes

otherwise excellent

    That's right. Poole is ought to be a simple but reliable tool. Only building changed files is not as trivial as it looks like but has some caveats.

    You're right, rsync is one solution for the problem you're facing.
