Re: 3 ideas

It's not a weird convention. It's the only valid convention. At the core macOS is a Unix system, and Unix only knows copy and move when it comes to files. In the GUI it's slightly different from the direct approach with cp & mv, but still close enough: CMD-C copies the file path, and then you decide...

Re: Default file browser?

Sadly that solution doesn't work in every case. Some apps use AppleEvents or AppleScript or something, and actually call Finder specifically to reveal a path, and then Finder will activate. It's annoying. But in many scenarios it works fine. You could always try to change Finder's Info.plist in /Sys...

Re: Version 1.2.5 released

Unmounting of APFS-formatted DMGs stopped working all of a sudden. I tested it immediately after installation, and it worked fine, and now I have two DMG volumes that won't unmount. (One of them worked before.) Hmmm…

But otherwise: thank you for the update!

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

Another thing: Apple actually forces you to use the ACL method, if you want certain functionality. Way back when, maybe on Mac OS X 10.5. or 10.6 they removed the UNIX flag uunlnk (user no-unlink); it's still in the XNU source code, but commented out: https://github.com/opensource-apple/xnu/blob/mas...

Possible to search for extended attributes?

Is there a way to use Nimble Commander's Find dialog to search for extended attributes? For example, you have tagged files with "com.apple.metadata:Tag1" and "com.apple.metadata:Tag2" etc., and you want to quickly find the files with tags as xattr, or want to find all quarantined files in your home ...

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

I understand. Would be cool, though. :) And yeah, ACLs are actually pretty great. Apple uses them too for some system locations. I use them a lot on important folders, e.g. in my home directory like ~/Applications, ~/Developer, ~/Developer/Applications, ~/.cache, ~/.local, ~/.local/bin etc. It's a s...

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

If you do change your mind at some point in the future, the interface would be straight-forward, something like this.

In the meantime, maybe I can cook up some solution for myself.

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

Thank you! Too bad about ACLs, though. I actually use them, mostly to restrict write access to certain folders, e.g. Desktop. Apple seems to use them a lot to protect default system folders, also in the user's home folder. It's actually an awesome tool to have finetuned control over your system. But...

Re: Development stopped?

What about touch bar support? :lol: I'm hearing it's all the rage these days ;) I use BetterTouchTool, and it's actually amazing what you can do with the TouchBar. Apple themselves are lazy, so when people just see the default TouchBar implementation, I can understand that they believe it's just a ...
