- chosen_destination? toggle or icon (not editable, false by default)
- file/directory name (not editable)

- destination path (null by default, hidden)
3. if user tap over a row a destination selection dialog is showed, which would fill
the 4th column with the selected path and mark the 1st one
4. before closing, loop over the files/dirs
- if chosen_destination is marked:
. move file/dir from INBOX to its destination path
. if create_shortcut -> create shorcut
. run mdbindex to reindex files. It would remove old entried from INBOX indeeed (so no need to play with the DB
I think I can code it in Lua in a few hours.
What do you think?
Sound great, since I do not have much experience with Lua I tend to forget that you ported it. This would be great to show the strength of Lua (and inspire other people to write more apps/utilities :-).
An extension I could think of (for a later version) is to add a tag-field that would update the tag of an file (after copying and mdindexing).
