Bench copy app to another bench (developer)

Its mandatory to use git for transport our new apps between bench(s) even into local machine?

Is possible copy apps between benchs?

i don’t know if its right or wrong way but i create empty app with the same name ,
lets say our app name is Selling
and bench 1 the the source bench2 is our current bench ,
i create new empty app in bench2 named Selling , then i remove it and copy Selling form bench 1 to bench2 , do bench migrate then bench start …

Thanks ! ahmadRagheb.
i will try on a few minutes, and i will show you my results.

@rootrigo did it works for you ??

@rootrigo,

you can use bench init --clone-from source_bench_path destination_bench_path

It will create a new bench and copy all the apps from source_bench_path

Friend, is working!
thanks.

in 2 doctypes have registers, weird? but work.

hi!, i will try, thansk for your help.

The registers on every doctype disapear in new bench?
