Get File Path allows users to copy to the clipboard the path of a file or folder dropped on it, after the automatic application of various programmable transformations.
It works with any kind of file (applications, documents, folders, ...).
It uses pattern matching to copy and transform the name, and/or the path, and/or the parent folder path of the dropped file.
It can automatically insert other characters and tags during the copy, which is useful to create links for example.
It remembers the last pattern used.
It can automatically resolve aliases (files and paths).
It can use Unix paths as well as Mac paths.
It can copy the result to the clipboard or to an edit field.
It can automatically replace blank spaces by %20 in the paths.
It can automatically quit afterwards.
It doesn't need any installation which makes it very easy to use.
It is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and many other languages.
What's new in Get File Path
A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan and macOS 10.12 Sierra, and as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the application, in particular under OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan, and macOS 10.12 Sierra
Old thieves never die, they just come back to rob you some more!
I don't know why these guys haven't been banned from MacUpdate long ago.
Do your homework, and you'll find something not just better, but free!!!
If all you need is the standard path of a file or folder, you can Get Info (Command-I) on it and the path is included in the the Where category. All you need to do is select the path and copy it and it's on the clipboard ready to use wherever you need it. This app, if it's worth anything, it's certainly not worth $27. Five dollars, maybe, but not a penny more.
If you already have Path finder, a way to clip a file path is built in. Just use the Edit > Copy Path and select from common path formats (UNIX, Windows, HFS, Terminal...) and it's clipped to the clipboard. I don't understand the outrageous price on Get File Path...Path Finder is a bargain at $40 as it does so much. If you're going to spend nearly $30, go for the extra ten and get a versatile Finder alternative. (I have no affiliation with Path Finder.)
WON'T THESE THIEVES EVER GIVE UP?
One dumb-ass app after another, none of them up to the high standards that Mac users expect, and all of them ridiculously overpriced.
Over the years I've use several better-built apps that do the same thing...all free, and I've now settled on the functionality included in XtraFinder...
I've been using this since its incarnation eons ago.
It just works...
... for free too.
Please write useful & unique apps instead of wasting everyone's resources on 2nd class clones.
I wrote myself an applescript a while ago that does basically the same thing as this app, and it only takes around 50K.
maybe i should post it an charge $3 instead of this guy's $5
lol, go code something usefull kid, nice try though
Mmm.. I saw this icon somewhere. As a matter of fact I saw several of the icons used by this developer elsewhere. I also saw he never gives credits for using them. Does he know about intellectual property rights?
