Empathy plugin for nautilus-sendto

I wrote a plugin for nautilus-sendto, so it can send files using Empathy; the code is not in SVN or in bugzilla (because it requires functions not yet merged with Empathy) but it’s already working.

Pretty nice!


Excellent! This demonstrates real progress on delivering the high level value that infrastructure such as Telepathy promises. Rocking! :-)

Good work, don’t forget to push the patch to bugzilla!

Could this abstract up more so you pick a contact and sendto automagically uses the most convenient available empathy transport (ie email if they are offline, or IM if they are online)?

Your are making my life better… i love every news about emphaty!!! please, keep it getting better….


Good idea, thanks a lot.

You rock ! Keep up the good work :D

Congratulations :)


This looks fantastic! I like Chris’ idea about abstracting it further.

Nice work :)

Trouble with nautilus-sendto is when you have a jabber roster with all of the people in your company on it you have to scroll through a few screen lengths of drop down.

Perhaps some query by example would help that.

Thank you!

I know but I don’t like using a tree view. I will post something on my blog about this problem in the future.
