qs command allows you to select files or text in Quicksilver (or send
them to the Shelf) from the command line.
Select a file:
qs MyFile.jpg qs ~/Documents
Select multiple files:
qs file1.txt file2.txt qs *.pdf
echo example | qs echo "example with multiple words" | qs whoami | qs pbpaste | qs
Note that when you pipe text to
qs, the same smarts apply that you would get
when typing text by hand. URLs, file paths, etc. are automatically recognized
and the appropriate action will be displayed in Quicksilver's interface.
To send an item to the Shelf instead of selecting it, use the
qs -s ~/Documents/MyMainProject
