Small utility that translates a shared screenshot url into a markdown-ready *.png url. Works with dropbox, screencloud, and others.

Project description

So, if you have a python window open, use this module to quickly convert_clipboard() to a downloadable link.

In the backgound, this simply accesses the page linked by the screenshot-sharing utility using requests, parses it with BeautifulSoup, finds the first link that ends in png using regex, and copies that to the clipboard using pyperclip.

Installation

Python Module

pip install copysc

or

$ git clone https://github.com/rv816/copysc.git
$ cd copysc
$ python setup.py install

Command Line Utility

Linux

$ export copyscpath=$(python -c 'import copysc; print(copysc.__path__[0])')
$ echo export PATH=$PATH:$copyscpath >> ~/.bashrc
$ sudo chmod 755 $copyscpath/copyscreen.py

You may also need to install a clipboard drivers to enable pyperclip to interact with your X clipboard.

$ sudo apt-get install xclip
$ sudo apt-get install xsel

Mac

$ export copyscpath=$(python -c 'import copysc; print(copysc.__path__[0])')
$ echo export PATH=$PATH:$copyscpath >> ~/.bash_profile
$ sudo chmod 755 $copyscpath/copyscreen.py

Windows

Install Linux or buy a Mac and see above.

I’m sorry. That was a bit rude. I’m sure it’s possible, but I don’t have the faintest idea how Windows works My hunch is as follows:

  1. Find out the absolute path of the module as follows: C:\>python -c 'import copysc; print(copysc.__path__[0])'
  2. Copy that path and add it to your PATH variable on windows.

Usage:

As python module:

from copysc.copyscreen import convert_clipboard
convert_clipboard()

OR…you can feed it a link directly

from copysc.copyscreen import convert_clipboard
convert_clipboard(link= 'https://www.dropbox.com/s/wg24eyirfaqrbnw/Screenshot%202014-10-17%2018.06.22.png?dl=0')

From the command line:

$ copyscreen

or

$ copyscreen http://screencloud.net/v/zOk6
