Get File Path

8.1
18 May 2018

Copy a filepath fast and easy.

Overview

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.

ABSOLUTE LARCENY. Sorry this app might be worth $.99 – nothing more. macOS already performs similar tasks for FREE.

Old thieves never die, they just come back to rob you some more!

Their still being allowed to post on MacUpdate is a tribute to uncaring, shameless greed!

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.)

+10 for Path Finder!

But I right-click and use the Copy Path option.
There are 6 different formats to choose from.

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... www.macupdate.com/app/mac/42067/xtrafinder

I'm trying to understand what is the target user group for this one-trick-ponny application. When would it be worth 20€ (yes, euros, not dollars, according to the developer website)? You would need it quite a lot to make it valuable. In that situation, do you really want an app that handle file path one by one? Wouldn't that person also have some basic programming skills and would easily set up an AppleScript/Excel sheet/Javascript or whatever that can do the transformation part for free and more efficiently?

I've been using this since its incarnation eons ago. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/9104 It just works... ... for free too. Please write useful & unique apps instead of wasting everyone's resources on 2nd class clones.
