Is this possible right now? If not, please somebody implement this.
This is already easily possible. Haven't tried it because I don't need it. Just apply the explanations found there http://lifehacker.co...launching-284127.php
to farr, but instead create an alias to run the .bat files with curl.exe.
Okay I tried it and will sxplain more :
Let's say we want to append bits of text (notes...) to a todo list once in a while...
1- download all the needed files (curl.exe, the .bat files etc., like it's explained in the link above)
2- extract the curl.exe file in your \windows directory (ONLY curl.exe)
3- create a new directory (maybe in the farr directory ; e.g. C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Personnal Utilities
where you want to extract the .dat files you've downloaded (they're zipped). The only one we need for my example is the "add.bat" one
4- Modify the first line of the add.bat file according to where you want to have your little todo.txt file. (change only the path) (e.g. : here’s mine echo %*>>E:\doct\todo.txt
. What’s BLUE is what you need to modify)
5- Optional, I think : create you “todo.txt” file where you’ve decided it should be. according to the edited path in the add.bat file.
6- You can either :
a) open farr's options dialog --> “aliases/groups” tab -->Right click ---> choose "Import : paste preformatted alias goru"
paste this line : 1000>>>"todo">->C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Personnal Utilities\add.bat $$1>+>^todo (.*)
then go straight to #12
b) Open farr's options dialog --> “aliases/groups” tab, and then...
7- Create a new alias : right click in the alias window —> "add new entry"
8- Give your alias a short but meaningful name: like "todo"
(I’d personnally keep the quotes in there : prevents accidental launching with the name)
9- Create a regex pattern for easier launcing in the "regular expression pattern" field : e.g. : ^todo (.*)
10- in the "Results" field, write : C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Personnal Utilities\add.bat $$1
(where "FindAndRunRobot\Personnal Utilities\" correponds to the path where you've put the add.bat you've modified.)
11- Click "OK"12
- Close the option window
13- Open farr, write todo
, a space, and write a note, press enter.
14- Go check your todo.txt file : your note should be in there.
You can use a similar procedure for all other .bat files included in the zip file.
seems a bit complicated... but , really, it's quite simple.
[edit : added the preformatted alias]
