Share your Presets (RNPs) with other ReNamer users

Since presets are essentially text files, post the text to "paste bin" type services, and then post that link here.  AFAIK text snippets are stored 'forever' which is more than can be said for even the 'best' free file hosting or 'free' webhosting wink  ("post to host" webhosting is NOT free)

The better pastebins will allow one to register to allow others to more easily track your submissions.  One such is:
http://pastebin.com/pastebin.php?help 
(free subdomain for preset text)

get a private pastebin simply by thinking up a domain name no-one else is using, e.g. http://RNPlaws.pastebin.com or http://myRNP.pastebin.com

or if you want to be especially tricky or consider yourself more than a poweruser:
http://pastebin.ca/tools.php

use your Jabber IM (or MSN) client to send pastes to the Pastebin

also get a subdomain:
http://pastebin.ca/makesub.php

BUT with the pastebin.ca service ONLY if you plan to post to it regularly

# Any Public Pastebin which is created but has no new posts in a 3 month period will be removed and the owner notified of the removal.
# Any Private Pastebin which is created but has no new posts in a 1 month period will cause the owner to be notified and given a few days to renew the Pastebin. If no renewal is made, all posts and the Pastebin will be removed.

Lots of rules?  get subdomain
occasional rules that last forever?  Just post casually to either service.


Simplified:

no registration, upload your RNP here:
http://pastebin.ca/upload.php




I chose RAW, 'never expire', and added a title
http://pastebin.ca/720287


adding details and tags generated a new URL  (this would be the one to post back to the forum)
http://pastebin.ca/720288

Re: Share your Presets (RNPs) with other ReNamer users

What i always miss from such 'Presets' / 'Favorites' is the lack of an comment/description line .
The only hint i have what this preset does is the file name of this RNP.
May i suggest to add an comment option to RNP?

I have seen i can simple write some lines to the RNP and ReNamer ignore this lines.
So i can open the RNP in an editor (e.g. in the "Preset Manager") and read the comments.

Like:

 this is an comment only.
 please skip
 this
[Rule0]
Name=PascalScript
Config=SOURCE:%2F%2F+take+a+line+from
Marked=0

[Rule1]
Name=PascalScript
Config=SOURCE:var%0D%0A++I%3A+Integ
Marked=1

-

-

What would be more handy is an comment tag in the RNP
which would be displayed e.g. in the "Preset Manager" as an second column
and maybe as tool tip in the ReNamer menu "Presets > Load" by hovering the Preset.

[Description] this is an comment only.\n please skip\n this
[Rule0]
Name=PascalScript
Config=SOURCE:%2F%2F+take+a+line+from
Marked=0

Re: Share your Presets (RNPs) with other ReNamer users

If you store the description inside of the preset, then each preset file will have to fully parsed in order to read that description. I think it is better to put the description for the preset into its name, for example: "This is my preset which does XYZ.rnp" big_smile

Also, you can use pascal script to create "comment" rules. And if you open Preset Manager, and double click on any of the presets - it will load it into ReNamer and you can read the comments from the rules pane.
