Just For Dummies.... (Guess that's me)

You know the book series XXX for Dummies?? (Networks for Dummies, Windows for Dummies...) I always thought it sounded quite stupid, but the books are a huge success. You know what? These books are not about Stupid, they are about Easy.

Easy does it

No, we didn't create File Viking for Dummies, but we did do something quite interesting: Programming made easy for everyone. And I feel like a dummy why I didn't think about it before... Thank you, Charles, for suggesting this. We really need your input. Charles showed us we are the dummies ;-)


We added "Pipes" to the next File Viking beta (yes, I know, that term is far to technical). The simple idea is the output of one Action is the input of a follow-up action.

For example, the ZIP files action has a zip file as output. You can configure the Email files action as a follow-up, it doesn't email the files you drop on the File Viking basket but the output of "Zip" instead - The zip file is emailed.

I have been testing this pre- pre- pre- beta-3 a few days now and can only say: this is a huge improvement over previous versions.... Charles, we owe you, thanks again!

Wow! Next Beta, Next Week! Join us!

PS, more Programming for Dummies

Yes, we will make this "programming" even better in future "1.x" releases. For example filtering comes to mind (only do this branch of the tree of actions for *.txt files)
