Migrating content to another Windmill instance

I have a corp client that is taking forever to make a decision on how they're going to license Windmill. In the meantime, I've been building their integrations using a free cloud instance. I'm curious, is there a documented process for migrating all content from one Windmill instance to another if that becomes a necessity?

@sledge the CLI sync is able to do 99% of what you need

So @rubenf I have a bunch of scripts in my locally running WM instance that I also have synced to a local folder via wmill sync pull and pushed to a git repo (not using windmill git sync). My client now has their instance of WM up and running and I want to migrate all of the scripts. You mention that the cli sync is able to do 99% of that ... do I just need to create a new workspace on the new instance then do a wmill sync push from the git cloned folder after logging into the new workspace with cli?

Yes, seems to have worked. Unfortunately this instance seems to have some other issues. On mine I did not have to do anything with CORS. I'm able to access it without issue by name - on my tailscale network, from my browser app. However, this new instance that my client setup is failing due to CORS issues. So I need to figure that out before I can confirm that the wmill sync pull / push worked. Ok - problem was my app API URL was configurable and when I dropped in the URL for the new server I forgot to include the /api/w/workspace-name portion and Windmill was returning a different set of CORS headers therefore (for invalid routes). The confusing thing was that the browser dev tools said the server was "Caddy" - so I thought I had a caddy server problem. I suppose it says that because I'm using the Caddy reverse proxy. Therefore, in answer to the question, doing the wmill sync pull --raw and wmill sync push --raw between the two workspaces worked fine and enabled very simple new-server bringup.
