Quick screen capture and sharing application for Mac OS X.

While I would love to tinker with this to make it easy to install (it is really easy to use once it is setup), it proved to be non-trivial.
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 (and the growlnotify command-line tool) are installed
With that said, once things are installed and configured it really is handy.
to install captured:
$ sudo gem install captured $ captured --install $ open -e ~/.captured.yml
Then you will need to exit that config file with the appropriate settings for your server.
When you install it will copy an example config file to ~/.captured.yml, which has a few examples of possible configuration types.
Install Type: Imageshack
The easiest way to do this is to use the image shack service. This service is a little slower, but is free and easy.
upload: type: scp
Install 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/"
