UpShot is an automatic screen shot uploader for OS X, written in Python.
For sharing, UpShot uses Dropbox's Public folder, giving you maximum control over what you share.
For more information and to download UpShot, visit the UpShot website. If you want to contribute to UpShot or check out its source code, read on.
The basic workflow is this:
- UpShot listens to a new screenshot being created with OS X's default screenshot function.
- It moves that screenshot to your public Dropbox folder.
- It copies that public Dropbox URL to your clipboard.
Other features currently include:
- Custom domain name support
- randomized filenames
UpShot is an open source project. Issues / pull requests, feedback, feature requests, …, are greatly appreciated!
UpShot uses a fabric script for build and maintenance tasks:
- Create a virtualenv.
pip install -r requirements.txt
This will build an app package in the directory
dist. You can execute it from there. If you want to see console output, start it via
fab run instead.
Note: Your virtualenv might not contain libpython2.x.dylib and thus cause an error. You can simply
ln -s /path/to/libpython2.x.dylibas a workaround.
The latest version has a configuration screen, but not everything is configurable yet. For a full list, check out
upshot.py for constants. You can override all those in a (new) file
