Automated and Simplified Work with Archived Static Resources
It does not matter if your Static Resource files are archived or not - developers no longer need to worry about unpacking them either way, as the Welkin Suite IDE takes care of this task.
To help you organize your resources, and work with them more effectively without losing the benefits of Zip archives, The Welkin Suite IDE handles all the actions that are required to view and edit the Static Resources – by automatically unzipping them when you pull any new data from Salesforce. The files inside the archives are displayed in a project tree as regular files, thus preserving the original structure. At the same time, the updated files are archived before being sent to build, also keeping the original structure. This way, you are able to navigate through, view, and edit Static Resources as regular files, with no need for additional tools or actions.
