[IDEA] Support for .paths files (dotPaths)

The specs are here: https://github.com/utiscc/DotPathsFileSpec One of the apps that currently supports dotPaths is Tempelmann's FindAnyFile, and there are three options for display/preview: tree, list & icon view (see appended screenshots below). Would it be possible for NC to support dotPaths files...

Auto-execute script after file copy or move

Just an idea. It would be nice (at least for me) to have an option to enable the automatic execution of a (shell) script on files (regular or directory files) after copying them from A to B, with source and destination paths as stdin, formatted for easy parsing in scripts, e.g. as json or CSV, and e...

Re: Viewer: Auto play audio files (or option for standard macOS quicklook?) [CLOSED]

I'm having no problems with QuickLook autoplay on macOS Big Sur in Nimble Commander: mp3, wav, aif, flac are all OK. (Can't preview m4a, though.)

Re: Ability to see hotkey binds by pressing the hotkey.

There is a freeware app called CheatSheet : https://www.mediaatelier.com/CheatSheet/ You just press & hold the CMD key, and you'll get a floating window with all available keyboard shortcuts in the frontmost application. There is no search, but maybe it will help for the time being. There's also a p...

Re: Extended flags (EF): third column in File Attributes

Part of it is still a guessing game, it seems, specifically regarding the MAY_SHARE_BLOCKS and IS_SPARSE flags. Here are two articles about that, primary emphasis on clones: https://eclecticlight.co/2021/04/02/how-can-you-tell-whether-a-file-has-been-cloned-in-apfs/ https://eclecticlight.co/2021/04/...

Re: Spotlight search in NC #2: tags, XAs etc.

Ah, thank you. So you can't input the kMDItem keys directly into NC's search field, which means you would have to load a different config every time you want to do an alternate search, right? E.g. like so… with the mv command substituting the main config for a prepared config that contains the searc...

Re: Spotlight search in NC #2: tags, XAs etc.

Hmm… there aren't any explanations in the config.json. I assume I have to create something like this:

Code: Select all

{
    "filePanel": {
        "spotlight": {
        	"format": "foo"
        },
But I can't say how to modify foo to have an actual effect. (?)

Spotlight search in NC #2: tags, XAs etc.

Split from the other topic… I think this is important enough to be put in its own topic. It seems that Nimble Commander is unable to search for XAs like kMDItemUserTags with Spotlight, i.e. searching for "foo" works, but not "tag:foo". Any plans to implement expanded Spotlight search incl. tag/XA se...

Spotlight search in NC #1: scripted temporary panel

Is there a way to tell NC to create a temporary panel in the current panel and search for a specific text string with Spotlight? Something akin to AppleScript? E.g.: tell application "Nimble Commander" to spotlightsearch with search "foo" If this isn't possible, are there any plans to implement ways...
