Emacs as an External JavaScript Editor

I would like to use Emacs as an external JavaScript editor. When doing so, Emacs is launched and I can see the JavaScript file for editing. The file is in the /tmp/ext-tmp/… folder. I can see the file and it’s being updated by Emacs.

When closing Emacs, Bootstrap Studio does not enable the Save option (for instance), as if Boostrap Studio does not know the file is updated. Right-click the JavaScript file, Open In Bootstrap Studio, the changes are not in the JavaScript file. Right-click, Open In Emacs, the changes are still there.

What does Bootstrap Studio need to sync the JavaScript file after editing?

External editing works in Visual Studio Code and gEdit, but why not in Emacs?

Thank you for reporting this! We will ship a fix for this issue in our next update.
