Pythonista to Editorial?
TutorialDoctor last edited by
So, Ole has two cool apps, one called Pythonista:, and another called Editorial.
But there is more activity on the Pythonista forums, and I see a lot of cool stuff I could use for Editorial.
Thing is, the Editorial API doesn't have all of the stuff Pythonista does, or either things are set up a little differently. However, I believe the file system is pretty much the same.
I find myself porting stuff over from posts on Pythonista.
Anyone here use Editorial, and have any interest in creating a way to port Pythonista scripts (provided Editoral has the requires modules) to Editorial?
The main issue is that many GitHub archives contain many files and sub-folders.
In Editorial, everything is run inside of workflows.
I have created a workflow in Editorial that can run multiple scripts here, but there is no way for me to represent folders and sub-folders.
I'm guessing a "GithubGet" script for Editorial (for downloading zip archives into Editorial), and a python script that can execute python scripts in the manner Pythonista does, will be a solution. But for now, that is way over my head.

Good idea. I have both. I would use Editorial more if I could more easily migrate scripts. I'm hoping Ole will make integration more automatic over time. So far I just cut and paste which obviously isn't ideal for bigger projects. I'm not enough of an Editorial pro to give advice yet but I hope you make progress.
By the way many useful Pythonista projects I have seen on Github are single folder. You might ignore the folder issue in a first pass. The GitHub tool I use puts each project in its own folder (I think that is common) but that is not required.

You know, I was actually just about to buy Pythonista as an environment to write my Editorial scripts in—thinking that surely, since it's the same dev, there would be an "export to Editorial" function.
You guys just saved me money. I'm actually saddened by this, however, because I was really hoping for this functionality. Booo.
