Transmit Plugin

The Transmit Plugin allows you to interact with your Transmit favorites, upload files to them, and open and mount FTP/SFTP etc. URLs in Transmit


The Transmit Plugin adds a 'Transmit Favorites' catalog entry to the Quicksilver, which can be seen in the 'Plugins' section of the Catalog preferences. Enabling this entry means you can search for your Transmit favourites in Quicksilver's 1st pane.

You can also get a full list of your Transmit Favorites by finding '' in Quicksilver's 1st pane, and pressing the right arrow key (or the forward slash key /).



This action opens an FTP URL or a Transmit Favorite in Transmit. Supported URL schemes are ftp://, sftp:// and ftps://

Mount as Disk

The 'Mount as Disk' action uses TransmitDisk to mount the specified transmit Favorites as a mounted disk on your Desktop. This action is only valid for Transmit Favorite objects

Upload to Site… and Upload File…

These actions upload single or multiple files to a given Transmit Favorite. The 'Upload to Site…' action takes a list of files (using Quicksilver's comma trick) in Quicksilver's 1st pane and requires a Transmit Favorite in Quicksilver's 3rd pane. The 'Upload File…' action is a reverse of this, requiring a Transmit Favorite in the 1st pane and a list of files in the 3rd pane.
