  1. Hi, I'm looking to build quite a simple workflow in Alfred that simply can suggest / autocomplete "citekeys" when I start typing, using a .bib file as it's basis. A .bib file is a BibTeX reference list, which is a plain text file containing a list of references formatted by the following scheme: @article{Salimans2017, abstract = {We explore the use of Evolution Strategies (ES), a class of black box optimization algorithms, as an alternative to popular MDP-based RL techniques such as Q-learning and Policy Gradients. Experiments on MuJoCo and Atari show that ES is a viable solution strategy that scales extremely well with the number of CPUs available: By using a novel communication strategy based on common random numbers, our ES implementation only needs to communicate scalars, making it possible to scale to over a thousand parallel workers. This allows us to solve 3D humanoid walking in 10 minutes and obtain competitive results on most Atari games after one hour of training. In addition, we highlight several advantages of ES as a black box optimization technique: it is invariant to action frequency and delayed rewards, tolerant of extremely long horizons, and does not need temporal discounting or value function approximation.}, archivePrefix = {arXiv}, arxivId = {1703.03864}, author = {Salimans, Tim and Ho, Jonathan and Chen, Xi and Sidor, Szymon and Sutskever, Ilya}, doi = {}, eprint = {1703.03864}, file = {:Users/gandalf/Library/Mobile Documents/com{\~{}}apple{\~{}}CloudDocs/-Sync/Mendeley/Salimans et al/Salimans et al. - 2017 - Evolution Strategies as a Scalable Alternative to Reinforcement Learning.pdf:pdf}, isbn = {3-540-63746-X}, issn = {1744-4292}, pages = {1--13}, pmid = {27474269}, title = {{Evolution Strategies as a Scalable Alternative to Reinforcement Learning}}, url = {http://arxiv.org/abs/1703.03864}, year = {2017} } This example above is just one entry, there are typically many such entries in a file. The important part is the very first value near the top which is the citekey, here "Salimans2017". What I want is that I start typing "Sali" in Alfred, and that it suggests "Salimans2017" and paste it to the current text cursor in format "[@Salimans2017]". As a bonus feature I'd be nice to be able to search for a title, then getting the citekey for the selected match. Does anyone have any good idea of how to construct this workflow? It basically boils down to making suggestions / autocompletion for a list of keywords stored in a plaintext file, and then pasting these keywords in a slightly reformatted way. I've put an example of a .bib file with two references here: https://gist.github.com/GandalfSaxe/4ca72ed004b832f4721e5274e2f1bb48
