Re: Ability to reveal file/folder by passing commandline arguments

Hmmh... so I did this thing:

Code: Select all

defaults write -g NSFileViewer -string info.filesmanager.files
And it seems to work in the three programs I've tried (Lightroom, SourceTree and Transmission). So far so good :)

Re: Ability to reveal file/folder by passing commandline arguments

Mike, are you sure that command is ok? With "APP_BUNDLE_ID" and such? It kind of looks like a template...

Re: build 1379 - 1.1.0, wrapping things up

Thanks Mike! I've already switched to that version and we'll see how it goes :) As for the volume information bar, I use it because I like to be constantly reminded how much space I have left (precious resource on an SSD).

Re: Command line

Mike, I think that the new command line processor route is something that would give you more power going forward, but, and that's a big but, I also think you have to pick your battles very carefully. At this point it might not be a good idea to switch direction radically. Just let the current appro...

Re: Command line

up/down arrows allows navigating thru history in Bash - it's not possible in such setup. What if you gave up on having the command line in overlapped mode function like a real terminal? Then you'd be free to make it a Super Powerful Command Line (tm) doing stuff better than terminal does, like that...

Re: Command line

Mike, I've just realized what Total Commander does right about that whole "command line at the bottom" thing. I knew something was feeling a tiny bit off in Files, like it was almost there but a bit more cumbersome than it should :) So, in TC you have this routing to terminal enabled as well, but as...

Re: Command line

It's not really "active" though. Even if routing is on, you can't use arrow keys to move the cursor in the command line, for example. You have to focus there to do that. So the distinction between has-focus / doesn't-have-focus is important. The current implementation seems fine too me.

Re: build 1362 - new directory listings, Pt. III

Yeah, exactly. After I press something (like an arrow key) aText works. It just doesn't work right after the window shows. And it happens only in this place, as far as I can tell. Other input fields in Files work well. Strange stuff :)

Re: build 1362 - new directory listings, Pt. III

Yeah, Apple has a weird approach to backwards compatibility. The like to break stuff and assume developers are there to update their software. Which makes me feel uneasy with each system upgrade, because I know that some tools I use are sure to stop working. I prefer the Windows way, where things ma...

Re: Move & Replace : Input Mode activation

Just tried files-1.1.0(1363) on Yosemite and the input focusing works properly, as it was in the past. On the other hand aText and the "ddate" shortcut doesn't work properly, as it wasn't working in the past. So overall, no changes for me ;) What's weird, the aText problem happens in the copy/move s...
