Check For File

Check if a specific file exists; create it if it doesn't.


Check For File

Use this shortcut to search for a specific file within the shortcuts directory. If the file doesn't exist, it will be created. I've placed lots of comments throughout to know what happening in the shortcut and help others understand.

I was asked by a reddit user how I accomplished this. The method I used in a previous shortcut was bloated with actions that do nothing and was throwing me off trying to decipher it. I decided to rewrite it so it was actually useful. Include this in other Shortcuts if this is a function needed.

If there is a more efficient way to achieve this task, I would love to know. If you have any suggestions, feel free to message me either on reddit, /u/dialup_, on Instagram, @canibeanartist, or here in the feedback form.
