Archiving Feature

The Runme archiving feature is a tidy-up tool for users. It allows you to hide outputs generated from markdown cells to reduce clutter and preserve output for future reference. The archived files are securely stored in Runme cloud which can be accessible at any time.

On the Runme cloud, your data is encrypted both at rest and in transit, ensuring end-to-end security

How To Use Archiving Feature

The archiving feature can be accessed through both the VS Code extension and the web interface. We will provide a quick walkthrough on using this feature on both platforms.

To make the most of the archiving feature on either client interface, it's important to have your output saved. You can save your output by enabling the Autosave feature for automatic saving or manually saving your work. See the Autosave guide for more information.
