Exporting data and assets from Sanity for personal redundancy and security.

Hello, I really like sanity but is there any possibility to export the data and assets in case of collapse? For example in markdown? I know it's a weird question but it's weird time. Or these data and assets could only stay on sanity server? Sometimes, I have the feeling having all the content in flat file (markdown etc) in local and GitHub is more secure than everything in the cloud. What do you think?

1. All your content is just a
sanity dataset export dataset_name
 away, you can even stick it in a CI and upload to S3 if you want personal redundancy. You'll get all the documents and assets neatly packaged as ndjson with binaries on the sides2. If you use Portable Text you can serialize it into markdown, html, whatever, independent of Sanity existing. The spec is open, there's plenty of tooling to operate on it. (for example )3. GitHub is also the cloud
🙂 We run on Google‘s cloud and network. They even own their own fiber and their server technology is pretty awesome.

Sanity was designed to let you use your content anywhere you need it, without being locked into HTML (!). So portability is a core feature. It's harder to get your content out of Wordpress in a sensible format tbh.
