If you're using the pre-insalled Apache under Mac OS X, the
DocumentRoot is set to `/Library/WebServer/Documents/`. I try to
avoid attachments as much as possible, so I'll usually put a file
in that location and just send people a URL that leads them to it.
To make this easier, I created a Drag Command that applies to any
file in that directory. For example, if I drop /Library/WebServer/
Documents/some.zip in a document, it inserts http://
That’s a nice idea. I have something akin to this using Quicksilver,
where if I ⌘⎋ a file while in Finder, Quicksilver will upload it
to my server, and put the resulting link on the clipboard
(unfortunately ⌘⎋ fails me quite often as a hotkey).
Anyway, for this bundle item I have two comments:
1) it doesn’t find my fully qualified domain name, so we need:
a) a note about how the user can set it up!?!
b) a fallback variable or so for the domain name
2) would be nice if it allowed to copy files not in ~/Sites or /
Library/WebServer/Documents to be copied to some “temporary”
folder of either location. That way, we can drag arbitrary files to
the letter, not just those already located in the right location.
It's currently scoped to
"text.mail,text.html" and I usually only
use it for e-mail, but perhaps it should be scoped for all "text"?
Anyway, I thought this might be a useful addition to the Mail or
I think currently it should be limited to text.mail.
On a related note, what's the preferred way to say
"I thought this
might be a useful addition to the XYZ bundle"? :)
Just send it here :)
