captured

Quick screen capture and sharing application for Mac OS X.

Screen Capture Sharing Tool

I made captured because I wanted to customize and extend screen capture sharing programs, it is really intended for the commandline savvy.

So, I am making some assumptions about the environment that captured runs in. In particular it expects:

  • A decent understanding of installing ruby gems
  • That Growl is installed

With that said, once things are installed and configured it really is handy.

Install

To install this customized captured build:

$ gem build captured.gemspec
$ gem install captured-0.4.1.gem
$ rm captured-0.4.1.gem

When you install, an example config file will be copied to ~/.captured.yml, which has a few examples of possible configuration types.

Using Captured

The main use is to upload a screen shot taken using OS X's built in screen capture.

  1. Press ⌘-⇧-4 to capture
  2. Paste the link

Captured can also be used from the command line to easily share files.

  1. Run captured path/to/file
  2. Paste the link

Configuration

By default captured uses Imgur as the default host, but you can configure it to upload and share images by other services.

To edit the configuraiton:

$ open -e ~/.captured.yml

Type: Imgur

The simple image sharer. The default option.

upload:
  type: imgur

Type: Imageshack

This service is a little slower, but is free and easy.

upload:
  type: imageshack

Type: scp

If you have you own web server scp is a very handy way to host your own captures.

  • user - optional if your remote user is the same as your local user
  • password - optional if you have setup key pair authentication
  • host - the remote host name
  • url - the public url to the remote host+path
  • path - the remote path to upload to
upload:
  type: scp
  user: user
  password: secret
  host: example.com
  path: path/to/captured/
  url: "http://example.com/captured/"
