sour - automate uploading of screenshots, automatic thumbnails, etc!

Just wanted to share a script I've been working on for the past few days called sour. Its been really useful, and it might be to others too.

AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=58453
Source: https://github.com/wolfcore/sour

sour is a script that automates uploading of screenshots,

sour: usage:

  general:
    -h, --help  print this message
    -f          forum output (thumbnail and BBCode)
    -k          keep images when done (sent to current directory)
    -u URL      don't scrot; use URL as image
    -e PATH     don't scrot; use PATH as image
    -p MSG      prefix output with MSG

  scrot-specific:
    -c          show a countdown before taking the shot
    -d NUM      wait NUM seconds before taking a shot
    -s          interactively choose a window or rectangle with the mouse

Please play with it and tell me what you think! smile

It's been a week since I posted this thread, just wanted to post an update: I've been working on sour nonstop, and it's pretty nice so far smile

It's so much easier to post screenshots compared to having to do it all by hand!

Re: sour - automate uploading of screenshots, automatic thumbnails, etc!

I see that you are using scrot to take the actual screenshot. Can you also support Gnome Screenshot?

I pretty like that one because it allows you to select an area which to grab which is not supported by scrot, I guess?

Thanks, but Sour seems to be broken:

[orschiro@thinkpad ~]$ sour -s
ERROR: url too large or equal to zero
