I just started using Keka to solve the issue of excluding ._ and .DS_Store files in tar.gz files to be used on a Linux box. I have "Exclude Mac resource forks (eg: .DS_Store)" checked in preferences as well as the drag and drop box. The ._ files are excluded, but the .DS_Store files are included.

Keka Version 1.1.2 (2787)
macOS High Sierra 10.13.6

You're both right. Technically the .DS_Store is not metadata, but Keka should ignore this one and other Mac specific hidden files when the flag is checked.

@davidysoards what format are you using?

.ZIP
I also don't like how it creates a folder within a folder, unlike the default Mac compress behavior.

@davidysoards Keka does not create the _MACOSX folder, so maybe you're creating those ZIP files with the bundled compressor?

I also don't like how it creates a folder within a folder, unlike the default Mac compress behaviour.

Can you give me an example so I understand this on better?

i had set Keka as the default compressor using the helper KekaDefaultApp. I right-clicked a folder, selected compress and it created .zip folder. When I would open that zip, there would be another folder just like the one I had right clicked initially and also a _MACOSX folder inside.

@davidysoards the default Compress "file.ext" option cannot be overridden by Keka. When you set it as the default application, this is only set for extraction. I must change that button text #291.

You can use the Keka services, that are in the bottom of the context menu:

Those also can be called with a keyboard shortcut:

How do you get those Services to list in the menu? Mine are all in a Services sub menu.

@gingerbeardman if you have more than four services, they group in the sub menu 😞

Grr.

Did you think about making an Finder App Extension like the Context Menu app?
