What a great app! I'd purchased this as part of a bundle and thought it was another dock or dragstrip. But no, this app is so much more. This app lets you easily create custom drop actions using Python or Ruby.
While I don't need this app to create and use Python scripts, life is just easier with it.
- Quick simple install.
- Intuitive interface (at least, when compared to using Python by itself)
- Build in desktop drag-n-drop interface
- Useful built-in debugging feature
In no way is this app isn't going to replace the need for full-featured development on the Mac, but if all you want to do is something like "adding custom timestamps to a filename", it's hard to beat Dropzone. In fact, that was my first action. I tried to do it with Apple's Automator which kept me running in circles. Once I figured out Dropzone could help me out, I had my first action done in 10 minutes. I've now added this app to my list of indispensable utilities.
I contacted the developer during the process of using the graphical features he's added. His response took a couple of days, but was very helpful.
