  1. Hi,


    I am currently using freedom through the exam period, however I find it tedious continously turning it on.


    1)     Dragging my mouse to the top bar
    2)     Clicking Freedom Icon
    3)     Clicking Start Session
    4)     Clicking Last used session


    Is it possible to write a script / make a workflow for to this?


    The app / software: https://freedom.to/

  2. Hi,


    [Objective] I am trying to build a workflow which gets a DOI link [e.g. https://doi.org/10.1287/orsc.3.3.398]  and sets my clipboard to some text from a pulled JSON file. In this case (Orlikowski, 1992). However, I am having a hard time importing the query from Alfred in to the file, and getting it back. 


    I have written the python script, lack the means to use the file. I have made the beginning of the workflow, using regex to focus on the link I need (e.g. 10.1287/orsc.3.3.398) with the regex key  - (\/\d{2}.\d{4}\/\w.*),

    def main():
      urlData = "https://api.crossref.org/works/"
      # the query should be inserted on line 44
      urlData += "10.1287/orsc.3.3.398"
      # Open the URL and read the data
      webUrl = urllib.request.urlopen(urlData)
      print ("result code: " + str(webUrl.getcode()))
      if (webUrl.getcode() == 200):
        data = webUrl.read()
        # print out our customized results, but should set this to clipboard
        print ("Received an error from server, cannot retrieve results " + str(webUrl.getcode()))
