Hi everyone! I built something and wanted to let you know
I wanted to make some snippets for HTML entities (I know there are some databases available, but I wanted to customise some of the keywords to my own liking).
I searched online for something that would let me maintain a spreadsheet and convert that into the .alfredsnippet format. Found a few Python scripts but I wanted something simpler, so I built a quick in-browser that lets you copy a bunch of spreadsheet cells (copied cells are in TSV format), paste it into a big ol' textarea, and it'll generate/download the .alfredsnippets file for you
The tool itself is here:
The source code etc is here if you're that kinda gal:
Let me know if you find it useful. Should make it tonnes easier to build/maintain large sets of snippets. I'm thinking a full set of Emoji snippets (should be easy enough to pull from this database), and a full set of character entity characters.
In addition because TextExpander can export as CSV, this will make it easy to convert those to Alfred instead (no need to run a script, just copy/paste).
