Fully automatic track and waypoint import with locus-actions

joeloc shared this idea 9 months ago
Declined

I want to import a huge amount of data into Locus automatically... around 50 track folders and 50 waypoint folders. I thought locus-actions could do this job and I already got as far as downloading. But then

<after>importData</after>

only opens up the user interface import dialog and waits for input. Not really that useful for automation with hundreds of items.


Is there any way to do something like

<after>importDataQuietly,foldername,create/empty</after>

// do not call the user interface but instead simply import into a given folder automatically, creating/emptying if requested


I assumed this to somehow work already, because otherwise locus-actions are a bit pointless for automated data import. Cannot find anything in the docs though.


Thanks,

joe.

Good day joeloc,

I was thinking about your question during a weekend. What you wants achieve is currently not possible. "Locus-actions" system purpose is mainly simplified access to data, but not a complete automatization. Also, your idea seems to me like a very very risky operation. I can quite simply imagine accidental tap on button that execute your action and? Database full of something, I really do not want.

Anyway what you looking for is close to this existing old, not yet implemented idea: http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/_batch_import_into_filename_category_from_gpx_kml_zip_folder


It is very specific task and I do not know how to help here more easily, sorry.
