Legacy LaunchBar Scripts and New LaunchBar Actions #4
I'm having a hard time to decide what to do with legacy LaunchBar scripts, which still work, and coming up with a new convention for the newer LaunchBar Actions format, which has some neat advantages.
My main goal with the changes I have in mind:
My least favorite is, frankly, a full focus on LaunchBar. I know LaunchBar is great and we all love, but so do a lot of Alfred users love Alfred. I wouldn't say Keyboard Maestro is that bad either. (If you read my blog, you know that's quite an understatement.) So I'm left with a difficult problem:
This repo needs serious restructuring!
I thought something like different folders for the scripts would make sense. Something like this:
A user could check out this repository to say
The only problem then is where or rather how do I keep a script that runs in either launcher? Would a copy not make maintenance more difficult?
It should therefore be no problem to do some symlinking.
I can't verify all of that right now because I'm not in the office this week.
@marcomasser No, the Actions directory itself is not a symlink. It contains folders that I would link directly under Actions. See the upper explanation in my initial post.
I think that's the best option actually. If someone likes to have the .lbactions, they can symlink the
I, mistakenly, deleted my last comment. I was able to recover it from @marcomasser's emails. Here it is.
OK. I made a decision. This repo is going to have subfolders, as mentioned in my original post.
Here's how it's going to work
There are going to be subfolders for each category. They are:
Users will have to symlink either directories or actions by hand. I'll add descriptions to the readme later.
I saw that I have a General Use folder in my Zettt/km-macros repo. This means I can merge the two repos into one.
