[REQUEST] Share Extension

edited February 2019 in The Archive

Hi ,

I have been using Drafts on ios and now on Mac. I find that using Drafts app as an external editor , I can add to the Archive notes if I cut and paste from the Drafts Mac app. However, it would be one step less if The Archive had a share extension.
Any chance that would be implemented?

  • I didn't know about Drafts for macOS. Wouldn't adding an output action to Drafts work as well, saving the file in the ~/path/to/your/notes/YYYYMMDD title.txt format? I do it this way on iOS at least. That's the beauty of Drafts, IMHO: you don't have to change any other apps since Drafts help you write the glue, i.e. actions, to make things work.

    That being said, app interoperability is on the to-do list! :)

  • @ctietze True, except that Drafts for Mac is still in beta and Actions aren't ready yet! :-)

  • @apoc527 I think Drafts is now released for macOS; did the situation regarding actions change? Can you do something with it? :)

  • Drafts for macOS does not implement actions at this point. It is coming but not there yet.


  • Actions are not ready yet, but I solved that with a KM macro that basically does the same thing my Save to the Archive action on iOS does (saves file to Dropbox).
