Managed Files Not Appearing in 'My Library' Tab of Media Browser

I wrote a custom drush command that takes files in a directory and copies them to the public:// filesytem of a Drupal installation (OpenScholar, to be specific). While the files are copied over and entries are made in the file_managed DB table, these files aren't appearing in the 'My Library' tab of the media browser. So the question is: what cause files to appear in 'My Library'?

Thank you!

Clipboard integration

I've made a short video how it works in WP when you buy a commercial product called Image Elevator. I was in luck to have beta test it and now i use it on my blog. Using it (like on Gmail) is just amazing - it makes writing a blog post really fast and natural as using MS Word.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdVca8bhv3k it is under 1 minute

If this could be achieved in Drupal it would be a killer feature for all content creators.

The nearest implementation I've found is filefield sources (with clipboard) + insert, but it is not as sleek as seen on video.

Overriding theme_link on wysiwyg embedded images

Using the latest dev of Media on D7.25, I'm having a small issue when embedding images that are linked through the view mode.

I try to override theme_link to add a FID attribute to the links but this does not work unless I flush the cache manually. I can't seem to find any clues as to where in Media or media_wysiwyg the links get generated initially or if this is a cache issue.

On the site we have disabled all caching during development so it's kinda weird we have to flush the cache at all.

Trying out a new tool for surfacing good ideas

It's been a pet peeve of mine for a long time that, while D.O and G.D.O have a lot of great ways to add ideas and discuss them there's really no efficient way of collectively prioritizing the ones we should focus our efforts on.

I have spent a lot of time trying out different tools that do this, as well as trying to design and build them. We may at some point reach a home-grown solution, but in the meantime I have found a very simple and effective tool that I'm trying out. It's called Tricider. I've posted an initial question here:

Prague core conversation followup

(this is a wiki, edit!)

We need to map the different moving parts and find ways to draw the lines between different kind of 'jobs' (functionality). For example "seperate file handling from media handling."

  • Map the moving parts on API level
  • Draw lines
  • Find the 3(?) high level use cases

We need to map out the territory, set some goal posts and draw the roads towards those goals
