Utilities for Alfred script filters.

Project Description

AlfredApp is an application launcher and general productivity tool for Mac OS X. It can be extended and customized with custom workflows and plugin scripts.

Plugin scripts, called “script filters” by AlfredApp, operate by printing an XML document to standard output. python-alfred is a Python library for easily building these XML documents.

Installation

$ pip install alfred

Usage

As an example, consider a filter that converts numeric input into binary and hexadecimal.:

import sys
import alfred


if __name__ == "__main__":
    try:
        val = int(sys.argv[1])
    except:
        sys.exit(1)

    # Use the icon associated with the Calculator app
    icon = alfred.Icon(filepath="/Applications/Calculator.app")

    # Create an item for the hex conversion
    hex_item = alfred.Item(
        uid='hex',
        arg="",
        title=hex(val),
        subtitle="Hexadecimal",
        valid=False,
        icon=icon)

    # Create an item for the binary conversion
    bin_item = alfred.Item(
        uid='bin',
        arg="",
        title=bin(val),
        subtitle="Binary",
        valid=False,
        icon=icon)

    # Call alfred.render to generate the XML document
    print alfred.render([hex_item, bin_item])

python-alfred requires lxml.
