I have two smartphones
Both have their own peculiarities. The Archos runs Lollipop, the Moto runs Marshmallow. The Archos can act as a
wireless access point, the Moto has a better screen. Both have Droidscript installed. So I wanted to move
droidscript project files between the devices.
- An Archos Helium 40
- A Motorola Moto G3
The official method here is:
But this caused some confusion. It didn't work. I tried several methods and they all failed. I may be quite
experienced with DOS and Linux machines but I haven't got a clue how to transfer files between two phones. So I now
do it as follows:
- Create an SPK file
- Move the SPK file between phones
- Import the SPK file in DroidScript
Then the file is on the other computer and there is a backup copy on your google drive. This never hurts. But when
you tap the downloaded file, you can open it but DS will not recognize it.
- Select the DS file by touching it
- Choose "Share by email"
- Choose "Store at Google Drive"
- Now power up the target device
- Activate (the same) Google Drive
- Download the Droidscript file
You need an SPK file
Look careful now. The file is called "DroidScript-Timer01" You can move that file around and nothing will happen.
It is now very important to ename the file by adding ".spk" to get an SPK file extension.
- Start DroidScript
- First long-touch the project icon
- Choose "Share via Email"
- Choose "Save to drive"
- And now you're in the menu screen to save the file
If you move the SPK file around and after it is on the target phone, touching the filename will open it in
Droidscript. And then the project is in the droidscript IDE.
Now there are two options: either I am doing something wrong saving project files, or my version of DroidScript
forgets to add the spk file extension.
