Bring again Open In Function
Hi, I have an idea about how to bring again the Open In Pythonista feature, I download a new app that maybe you people know it, it's called Workflow for iOS, it's make workflows like editorial but it integrates the workflows via action extension, so it's possible to have a workflow that receive a file and execute a pythonista script sending the file via argv or clipboard and the pythonista script save it in the pythonista documents folder, I'm learning python so I don't have the actual knowledge but can someone help to make this work out?

@CCC what i'm reading in the link that you kindly share, is that actually I can't do it? Actually what I manage to do is to send a .py via clipboard and read it in Pythonista and then send a mail with the .py as attachment but it don't work with binary files like a .zip

So to be clear, are you trying to read py files from email? Or from the web. If from the web, the best solution is a bookmarklet, which already does everything you want. If from an email... Then yes workflows would work.
@Jonb what I'm trying to do it's to open a file (.py, .jpg, etc.) via Open in.. and run a Workflow that read that file and call a Python script in Pythonista that save that file, I already did it with .py files, but now I want to send .zip or .jpg files and I can't, the email was an example of passing files that I did.
