I created this a while back, but I had forgotten about it until a
recent discussion of Drag Commands.
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://
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 Text
On a related note, what's the preferred way to say "I thought this
might be a useful addition to the XYZ bundle"? :)
FYI - If you're looking at the command and wondering why all the
gymnastics to get the Fully Qualified Domain Name for the local
machine, it is intended to work in either of these situations:
1. `hostname` returns something appropriate, like "kendra" and
`domainname` returns something appropriate like "oit.gatech.edu".
2. `hostname` erroneously returns the FQDN (like
"kendra.oit.gatech.edu") and `domainname` returns nothing at all.
(For reasons unknown, I think most systems are misconfigured like
this by default.)
I didn't "switch" to Apple... my OS did.
