Super easy screenshot sharing (Think Skitch)

I'd love to see Lighthouse explore integration either with Skitch, or develop something like Skitch. It would be great if users could capture screenshots of stuff thats broken and POST it up to Lighthouse either to an existing ticket or a new ticket.

    I'm with you, skitch is one of my favorite tools. I emailed them when they first launched the beta about providing an API. They denied my request and preferred a javascript widget that pulled from your repository. I may just have to go with that, though I'd prefer a way to add basic HTTP POST or Atom API types in Skitch.

    You could create a simple WebDAV-like controller in Lighthouse. I wrote a quick one a while ago so I could easily post images to my blog. Unfortunately, Skitch expects the URL to the image after posting to be a certain way, so you can't return a 302 or something and point it elsewhere. I just had a route for 'map.resources :files, :requirements => { :id => /[a-zA-Z0-9_-.()%]+/ }' and then implemented the update action in my controller to save the file and return OK.
