File or Directory Path Text Processor 1.0

Set file or directory path as a variable in Tasker

    Some time ago I posted Path Copier project which was copying file or directory path to clipboard.

    The purpose of this helper project is the same - set a file or directory path as a variable in Tasker but with use of AutoShare text processor.

    Import Pick File intent from the AutoShare intents page.
    You need to have installed a file browser that supports OpenIntents (e.g. OI File Manager, Total Commander).

    Create a text processor:
    • Open AutoShare, select “Manage Text Processors”
    • Create a new text processor by clicking the “+” icon
    • Name it “File/Dir Path”, give it an icon
    • Select “Yes” when asked if you want to Modify Text
    • Give it a timeout at least 30 seconds
    • Long press it to bring up a menu to select “Process HTML” and select “No”

    This is how it works.
