Write to Working Copy

Posted by @BoxOfSnoo, Last update 23 days ago

Write the Markdown draft to Working Copy. It will handle files with the same name in different directories, and allow you to choose.

The script will prompt for your repository name and URL key at the first run, and will store these values in the Credentials for the script. You can leave the “key” parameter empty if you have to URL key.
