s2d - Send to Device

Send text and documentation from the command line to various devices.

Examples

  • Found an interesting URL that I want to have on my iPhone
  • Send the PDF I just produced to my iPad
  • Send a file to my Kindle

User Interface

I am mostly working on the command line, therefore I want something that works as pipe:

cat file.txt | 2iphone
2iphone file.txt
2kindle book.mobi
2ipad document.pdf

All of these commands are actualy aliased versions of the s2d command:

# assuming that s2d has a device called 'iPhone' configured
alias 2iphone="s2d --device=iPhone"
alias 2kindle="s2d --device=Kindle"
alias 2ipad="s2d --device=iPad"

Concepts

Target Device

Identifies a device. Holds device name and transport. Examples names are 'iPhone', 'MyKindle' or 'Paula's iPad'.

Transport

A transport defines how to reach a device and holds all information required to reach it:

  • Prowl (for iPhone/iPad)

Not implemented yet:

  • Mail
  • SMS
  • Twitter DM
  • Custom (potentially requires a device-specific app e.g. on the iPhone)

Delivery Strategy

Belongs to a transport.

  • iPhone & iPad

    • Smaller text, URLs, etc: Send directly
    • Larger files: Upload to Dropbox and send private link
    • Limit probably needs configuration
  • Kindle

    • File attachment of an eMail. s2d will create one if input was passed as pipe.
