I would like to share a grain with a hash in the URL.  The idea is that the grain can use the hash to bring the user to the exact part of the application which pertains to them.  It could also store a session identifier, for example.  I see that grains allow for deep linking:


Is there a way to do this with sharing?  The documentation does not look promising:

https://docs.sandstorm.io/en/latest/developing/path/#helping-the-user-share-access

I could abuse the permissions system to do this, if I knew what I wanted to direct the user to in advance, but I'd rather not.

Thanks!
Troy

There's no way to do this currently. Want to open an issue about it?

Actually, you can totally add a path and a hash to the end of a sharing link.

For example if you have a sharing link like this:


You can add /foo/bar#baz on the end:


And then the grain iframe, when it opens, will be navigated to /foo/bar#baz (under the grain's random hostname).

Kenton, you're right.  You can add a path and a hash to a sharing link.  I would like for the grain to do this, when it pops the sharing dialog.  I don't intend for the end-user to have to do this manually.  I get that the sharing dialog is sharing the grain capability (at some level of permission), but in my context, the user wants to share the capability for the grain and the value in the hash at the same time.

In case anyone is reading this thread later, it is now possible to add a hash to a shared URL.  Documentation:
