I’m a new Coda user and enjoying learning how to use it.
In Coda I would like to use URLs that point to my local file system, specifically to images, so that I can view the images in Coda alongside other data.
I’ve tried inserting links like
file:///Users/wallace/tmp/sample.jpg, which works fine my browser to show that image, but Coda isn’t happy. It always says, “Invalid embed URL,” whether I try simply pasting the link into open space or entering it in a formula:
I realize that pointing to local files may seem old-fashioned when using a browser-based tool like Coda, but my team and I are working with a large library of images and not so speedy internet connections. I know that file links are OS-dependent, but luckily my small team is all using Macs and can use standardized paths.
