Dragging on the command line

December 23rd, 2015

Here’s drag, a small utility to enable drag & drop for files you’ve browsed to in your terminal:

It’s useful for dragging files you’ve created on the command line into a web page to upload them - for example, adding the zip files generated by carthage archive to a Github release. The window will pop up directly under the cursor’s current location, so all that you need to do is click and drag.

Drag is available as a package, or from source. It’s written in Objective-C, so it’s not tied to a specific Xcode version.
