A Reflection on URL schemes
@ctietze, maybe I shouldn't have posted this here, feel free to move this to "Meta" if you feel it more appropriate.
While I would love to see something like
thearchive:// or shorthand like
ta:// being implemented, I've always been hesitant to use
On the bright side, I find it immensely useful to be able to call nvALT from outside of it.
On the dark side though, what if/when nvALT goes away ?
I'm afraid of getting left in the dark, alone with my links pointing nowhere anymore.
Is there a way for a developper to expose app preference/setting that would allow the user to say "support/handle xyz://customURL format" ?
Or is there a way for the user to customize that at the OS level ?
[[wiki links]] are great inside one app, be it The Archive or nvALT. But what can we use from the outside that would be reasonably future proof ?
I'm curious to read what strategies others are using for that use case.
