Tool for automatically copying screenshots into your Keybase public folder

Project description

A very simple tool that monitors your desktop for new screenshots, moves them to your public Keybase filesystem, and copies the link to your clipboard.

Works on macOS and (probably) Linux.

Dependencies

On macOS, install terminal-notifier from homebrew to have notifications when complete.

Installation

Simply:

$ pip install screenbase

Usage

By default, screenbase watches your ~/Desktop directory for files matching a regex tailored to macOS screenshot filenames (Screen Shot 2017-03-09 at 5.29.50 PM.png). This regex is configurable as a string passed with the -m flag. The watch directory is configurable via the -d flag.

Similarly, screenbase uses your current username (via Python’s getpass.getuser()) as your keybase username by default, which it uses to move files into your kbfs public folder and generate the URL to it. This can be configured via the -u flag.

Screenbase will look for a YAML-formatted config file in ~/.config/screenbase (this path configurable with the -c flag). If it finds it, it will overload the default configs with the values it contains. The keys should match the long form of the command line flags you can see via --help. Eg:

---
user: jlindsey
directory: /Users/jlindsey/screenshots
verbose: True
