I am evaluating EF right now and it looks like a great replacement for my DevonThinkPro and Soho Notes.
There is, however, one thing that I really would love to have, the ability to drop files into EF’s folder structure on the hardrive and have EF automatically recognize and import new file. I understand that it is not “anything super simple” and will take a while to implement.
Meanwhile, maybe there is a way to create a simpler manual command (or AppleScript) that will check a folder against EF’s Library and import anything that was added?
Do you think that it is possible?
Yes, this is on the to-do list.
It’s not really possible to add this via AppleScript. I haven’t yet decided on the mix of manual/automatic that the feature will have, though I agree that it would make sense to start with something manual if I can make that ready much sooner.
With EagleFiler 1.2 you can save files into a library’s “To Import” folder.
