Switching between current projects
19 July 2012
The Porkcut of the day is about switching between current projects. Basically, it adds a submenu intelligently called Current projects that lists your current projects, and from where you can jump to any of them. What's a current project, you ask ? For this Porkcut, it's just something in a special folder (in my version, the folder is called
Zzz_Current, but it can be different for you). When you jump to a project using this Porkcut, it just opens that something in the special folder. It can be a folder, an alias to another folder, an application, a tin can or even a multiplexer. I find it useful to put some aliases and tin cans to my most active projects.
The best place to put this Porkcut is a folder in which you store all your projects. Let's call this folder
Projects. Once you've installed that Porkcut, make sure you create the special current projects folder just in
Projects. In my computer, the Porkcut is in the file
Projects/Porkcuts.fscript, and the current project folder is
Projects/Zzz_Current. It's a weird name, but it's made purposefully, to ensure that the folder is the last of the list.
As a special bonus, it also creates key equivalents for the folder names, so that you can navigate really swiftly.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
