Make new empty iCloud file

Posted by @davenicholls, Last update 26 days ago

Used to create an empty file in the Drafts iCloud folder tree that can then be edited in place with an external editor (e.g. Textastic or Kodex on iOS, or any Mac text editor)

Can be used to with any file type, but is intended mainly for the creation of external JavaScript files.

When run prompts for the filename and then creates an empty file in the ‘/Scripts’ folder in the Drafts iCloud folder tree.

If the filename is of the form:

/newfolder/filename.js

It will be saved in the ‘newfolder’ subfolder not in the main Scripts folder.
