A bean stands for an issue, a thing that needs to be done, a project that requires processing or developing of at least one file. The bean has its attributes such as name, status, result, and context. There are two kinds of beans: a bean with a file and a bean with a directory.
Files as well as folders kept in the flow directory are mostly interpreted as beans have a peek here. Beanflows determines the bean status according to its location in the flow directory structure. Done beans are stored in the _Done folder, inactive beans in the _Inactive folder, etc. When you set the bean status in Beanflows, the program will transfer it to the right folder. If you transfer the bean to a different folder in the Finder, Beanflows will show the right status.
Beanflows gives you a unique perspective on your files and directory structure, however it doesn’t lock them. It makes no use of any database and your files reside on the hard drive in original formats. Beanflows shows them organized into flows of beans and flow items, and maintains a simple folder structure.
