Find and paste unicode symbols. I included a lot of them, like really a lot, over 20k I think, but for me workflow works pretty fast.

 

Symbol can be pasted as symbol (mh...), in html encoding, as python string and as unicode code point.

Super useful for designers! I would have paid Alfred2's Powerpack price for this workflow alone!

Thank you so much, this is great! Was always googling for the HTML code for some symbols when I needed them for a headline on my jekyll blog. Not anymore! :)

Hi,

 

Is there any way to have a workflow for some favourite symbols, like having a handy list of them which can be fired up via let's say a hotkey?

I don't know. But inserting a symbol on hotkey is the simplest thing in the world: just join Trigger > Hotkey and Outputs > Copy to clipboard.

Thanks a lot. Appreciate it. I guess that should do it too.

Great job. Seriously. You should post it on packal.org.

I updated workflow with new emojis from iOS 8.3 and simplified script itself

Hi, Looks like an interesting workflow. I noticed in your recent commits that it looks like you hard-coded a file from your environment as the symbols file..

 

https://github.com/b...lssearch.py#L45

 

so I tried changing that to the symbols.txt file , but the parser barfs on the file:

[ERROR: alfred.workflow.input.scriptfilter] XML Parse Error 'The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSXMLParserErrorDomain error 38.)'. Row (null), Col (null): 'Unescaped '<' not allowed in attributes values' in XML: 
[...]

I'll try to take a look at the file to see if I can figure out what's wrong, but maybe you are faster? ;) Thanks

 

 

edit: so now I see that that is supposed to be a temporary file. for those interested, just take out the absolute path and everything will work just fine. i.e. just leave 'a.txt' as the argument in the above referenced line.

Yeah, it was meant as log for debugging. It should've been removed.

I commited new version that does that. Sorry.
