Restore RAR support

Post by raindrop » Mon Dec 21, 2020 9:46 am

I'll be happy if you can restore support to rar just like you had before and worked well as other application allows rar compression such BetterZip, Archiver Entropy etc. (to those who has rarlabs rar under /usr/bin) I've just checked and my old Keka 1.1.0 still works perfectly with rar in Big Sur.

Also Finder integration to compress Keka with optional right click selection will be great, e.g. compress to zip, to rar, to 7z etc.

Restore RAR support

raindrop,

Sadly RAR support is difficult to implement, due to sandbox restrictions. I’ve just updated the RAR support document to note that you can un-sandbox Keka to enable that support (the same as that beta v1.1.0 has).

About the Finder integration enhancements those will come for sure in the future, but no timeline yet. You can follow the issue that track this feature so you’ll be notified when there’re some news: https://github.com/aonez/Keka/issues/292
