Get automatically favorites from Directory Opus


#1

Since DOpus 12, a lot of improvements has been made in pro of third party devs. I would love that Listary fill favorites (even smart ones) right from DOpus. What do you think Channing? It’s possible?
PD. In v5 I tried to do it by manipulating the json file, but doesn’t reflect any change and eventually gets overwriting. Why?


#2

Thanks for the information, I’ll check the new DOpus.

The settings file is only read when opening Listary.


#3

Exactly. That is what I thought, so Listary will read the changes normally in the next start, instead they are just ignored.
Do you come in mind with any idea about import favs from a text file or something?


#4

I’ll consider making it possible to import favorite folders from a text file in a simple line-by-line format. For example:

C:\folder1
D:\folder2
D:\folder3

#5

Yeah, I don’t think this will work for grouped favs and else. Anyway, nevermind, I sort of managed this already, with a script in DO, just by closing Listary before change the config file, so this way the changes are respeted. And… it rocks!!!.
