i) What is sharethis!?
----------------------

Sharethis will enable you to run a HTTP Server with
the current directory as the document root. The server
will be accesible at port 8000, enabling you to share
things fast.

Just browse to the directory you want to share and
run sharethis from nautilus or the command line.

ii) Usage:
----------

1) From console:

$ cd FolderIWantToShare
$ sharethis

2) From nautilus-script
Select sharethis from the nautilus-script menu.

NOTE: The server will be accesible at http://your_ip:8000

iii) Installation
-----------------

STEP 1)

$ untar zxvf sharethis-version.tar.gz
$ cd sharethis

|-- README
|-- bin
| `-- sharethis
`-- nautilus-script
`-- sharethis

Now you must put bin/sharethis in your PATH and copy
nautilus-script/sharethis to the nautilus script folder.

You can copy bin/sharethis to /usr/bin/sharethis, or
create a local bin directory in your home (~/bin).

If you decide to copy bin/sharethis to /usr/bin then skip
STEP 2 and goto STEP 3.

STEP 2)

We\'re going to create a ~/bin and add it to your PATH.

$ mkdir ~/bin
$ cp bin/sharethis ~/bin
$ chmod +x ~/bin/sharethis

Now let\'s edit ~/.bashrc. You\'ll have to add this:

--CUT--
if [ -d ~/bin ]; then
PATH=~/bin:$PATH
export PATH
fi
--END--

STEP 3)

Now we just copy the nautilus script to the nautilus script
folder.

$ cp nautilus-script/sharethis ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts
$ chmod +x ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/sharethis

We\'re done.

Thanks for the script. However, a slight edit needs to be made to .gnome2/nautilus-scripts/sharethis if you put bin/sharethis into /usr/bin. Here is the changed line as it should be:

gnome-terminal --execute /usr/bin/sharethis

Originally, this line was referring to the bin folder placed inside $home. That works fine if you've placed it there, but if not, you get an error message.
