  1. Yeah, that would make for a smoother user experience but I don't think this SSL certificate error happens often enough (at most once a year) to make sending two requests per query worth it. Another way could be to programatically set the workflow environment var to False it when it encounters it for the first time, but then there'd be no easy way to check if the SSL certificate has been rectified lest we go back to sending two requests per query or do some other over-engineered way just to do so. Probably more practical to just display a better error message telling the user how to fix it via the Workflow Environment Variable settings.
  2. Thanks for reporting the error and sorry about that, did a silly mistake in the code introduced in the previous version. This small update should fix it.
  3. A new minor release is out that exposes an environment variable ALFRED_PT_SSL_VERIFICATION to let users easily toggle SSL verification. Thanks again to @deanishe for the recommendations!
  4. Oddly enough, I am seeing this cert in my keychain access but still getting SSL cert verification error. Agreed, will also be easier to maintain it that way once they fix it or in case it happens again in the future. I've opened an issue here to track my progress on implementing this in case anyone else is interested. And thanks for the detailed explanation! Did not expect learning a new thing or two about SSL. Cheers 🍺
  5. According to this, it could be due to one of the "root or intermediate certificates" expiring a few days ago. I'm using Python requests but I'm not quite sure how to bypass this specific cert issue so I just disabled SSL cert verification altogether. Google Chrome is having no problems with it (the official website making similar requests still works) so I thought it would be safe to just ignore. Probably too late to ask this now, but was it working for you (or anyone else) even before the monkey patch? I'm using Catalina 10.15.5. Appreciate it that you're looking into this!
  6. Yep, I'm getting this issue as well. Something to do with verification failure of Power Thesaurus' SSL certificates. Will shortly release a hotfix for this. If this persists, please open an issue here. Edit: I've released the fix for this which can be downloaded from here. Will update the packal page with this update later.
  7. I've updated the workflow to fix the errors. Please try again with this new version.
  8. Power Thesaurus Search for Alfred Search for synonyms and antonyms on Power Thesaurus from Alfred 4. Installation Get Power Thesaurus for Alfred from GitHub or Packal. Usage Primary commands: pows <word> — Search Power Thesaurus for synonyms of <word>. powa <word> — Search Power Thesaurus for antonyms of <word>. For both primary commands: ↩ or ⌘+NUM — Copy highlighted entry to the clipboard ⌘+L — Show full query in Alfred's Large Text window Results Resulting synonyms or antonyms will be sequentially listed according to user rating. Troubleshooting SSL Errors If you're having SSL issues, try temporarily disabling it by setting the workflow environment variable ALFRED_PT_SSL_VERIFICATION to False. This will bypass SSL verification as a workaround while waiting for the SSL certificate to be rectified. You can check Power Thesaurus's SSL certificate status here. Be sure to set it back to True when all's green. Other Errors For other errors, please open an issue describing how you got the error and together with the logs from Alfred > Workflows > Debugging Mode if possible. There's no proper error handling in place yet, so we'll have to troubleshoot things this way for now. Licensing and Acknowledgement This workflow is released under the MIT Licence. It is heavily based on deanishe's Alfred-Workflow, also MIT-licensed. By using this workflow, you acknowledge, understand and signify your agreement to Power Thesaurus Website's terms and conditions, and privacy statement.
