A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11971945B2) discloses a system for modifying websites or interactive applications. The system includes a processor and a unit that manages amendments to a currently edited website from at least two sources while the website is running. This unit comprises a published database, a draft database accessible by the sources for storing edits, and an auxiliary system to update the published database based on edits and editing history. The auxiliary system includes features like an auto updater to notify changes made by one source to another and an editing history recorder and analyzer.

Furthermore, the system includes a publisher to publish changes from the draft database to the published database, a database creator, an archiver to store archive versions of objects, a reverter to revert objects to a version from the archive database, and a cloner to create copies of databases. The draft database, published database, editing history database, and archive database can be combined in a single database or exist as separate entities. The auto updater includes a baseline distributer to monitor changes from a defined baseline version and a conflict resolver to resolve conflicts caused by edits from multiple sources. The method for managing amendments involves storing the current state of objects in a published database, storing edits in a draft database, and updating the published database based on edits and editing history, with features like publishing changes, creating databases, storing archived versions, and resolving conflicts.
