Feature-Request : Auto-Save for any new Draft post

During my post creation in dev.to, in the draft mode accidentally I forget to click the save button. The next day when I saw my yesterday's contribution was gone and the draft has only the version which I saved much earlier.

It would be great if you can provide an auto-save feature for any draft version on the post. So that it won't be a big shock like me for others in the future!

Thank you for this feature request. Our product team liked this idea but has said it is a pretty intensive feature and will need more discussion from our SRE team.
We have moved your request to Forem’s Github Discussions where the community can better collaborate with our product and engineering teams. You can read more about the decision to use Github Discussions in this post.

Thanks for the feature request! It's something we might consider. For the time being, we use localStorage to persist any changes you make that haven't been explicitly saved, so unless you used another computer to view your draft again, the one you were working on should have a copy stored and loaded up via localStorage.
