Add Shortcuts App into your App

gsward 3 months ago in General • updated by Kevin C 1 week ago 3

Many apps support Shortcuts in Apple’s Shortcut App (e.g. Working Copy). If you were to add the actions for New File, Append File, Upload/Download File, and SSH Command I could automate my entire build process through the Shortcut App in your App.

I'd like the ability to 

  1. initiate named shortcut(s) from the share sheet.
    two examples:
    1. pass the file name to another app, with some intermediate processing of my own. (e.g. a python or R file)
    2. pass the selected lines to another app, with some intermediate processing of my own (as above).  
  2.   This would allow me (and others) to use Textastic as a front-end to other apps. (R Analyst or Pythonista)

It also would be great if a shortcut could insert text at the cursor or replace selected text/lines in the current editor.
