I work with multiple computers and OS'es at work and regularly use a number of HTML reference documents. To save time and bandwidth, I saved those to disk.
However, the bookmarks for these local copies have hardcoded paths which means when I synchronize the bookmarks (and the files) between computers, they would only work under one computer because the file system structure is different on each one.
So I need a way to embed some kind of per-device path into the bookmarks or similar solutions.
Stuff I've tried
- Relative paths -- doesn't work
- Create a
C:folder under the root (
/) directory of the Macs and the Linux computers. This works, but is very ugly.
- Setup a local HTTP server on each computer. This works but requires a lot of configuration. I am not allowed to do this on some of the work computers.
Something I am trying
I could have a website that would redirect me back to a local (file://) URL according to the computer that is requesting it. It feels like people must have done this before. I am just wonder does anyone know anything like this?
