Automation Task: reverse of "Expand Tilde in Path”?

Recommended Posts

It would, at least so far as I'm concerned, be useful to have a new Automation Task that is effectively the reverse of the current Expand Tilde in Path. In other words, to take something like /Users/fred/Documents and to output ~/Documents.


Why? Because sometimes in a workflow that is dealing with a long path you need to output some notification where it's rather more elegant to abbreviate the path. Yes, I know I can do that with shell and sed but an Automation Task would be simpler because all you'd need to do would be to add the appropriate variable to the task.
