Showing results for tags 'raindrop.io'.
This is a workflow for searching and adding bookmarks to Raindrop.io. To search your Raindrop.io bookmarks, open Alfred, type r, space, and then your search query, and the results will show directly in Alfred so that you can select one and press enter to open it in your browser. Raindrop.io collections and tags will also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with a search. If a web browser is the frontmost app when you open a bookmark from this workflow, it will open in that browser. If you are working in another app, the bookmark will open in your default browser. Hold the cmd-key to view the URL for a bookmark. Hold the ctrl-key to view the description for a bookmark. Hold the option-key and press enter, or use cmd+c to copy the URL instead of opening it in a browser. Hold the shift-key and press enter to open the permanent copy that is stored at Raindrop.io (Requires a Raindrop.io Pro subscription to work) Press enter before you have started typing a search query, and Raindrop.io itself will open in your active web browser. To add a new bookmark to Raindrop.io, there are two ways to get the actual bookmark you want to add into the workflow. The primary way is to first make sure that you have the webpage you want to add opened in a browser and that it is the frontmost window, and then open Alfred and type ra followed by a space. The alternative way, which only works if the frontmost application is not one of the supported browsers (as the primary method will be used then), is that you first copy an address that you wnant to add as a bookmark, and then open Alfred and type ra followed by a space. In the second step you get to change the title that the bookmark is saved with. Hold the cmd-key to save and skip the tag adding step. In the third step you get to add tags to your new bookmark. You can either simply type them out, or select from a list of tags that matches what you have started to type. Separate multiple tags with comma. Hold the cmd-key to save when selecting a tag in the list, and skip the option of adding more tags. The Firefox support for adding bookmarks was made possible with the help of deanishe's great workflow Firefox Assistant, which needs to be installed in Alfred for the Firefox support to function. Get it here: https://github.com/deanishe/alfred-firefox If the workflow is not authenticated with Raindrop.io when you initiate it, you will be taken to the authentication process. To set keyboard shortcuts, go to the "Search Raindrop.io" workflow in the Alfred preferences and look in the top left corner, where you can set keyboard shortcuts for searching Raindrop.io, or for adding bookmarks. To change other settings, go to the "Search Raindrop.io" workflow in the Alfred preferences, and click the [𝒙] button in the top right corner, where you get descriptions of the options in the information view to the left, and set the options by changing the value of the variables to the right. One special thing with this workflow is that it detects if the topmost window is a browser window, and then opens the search results in that browser. So, if you are currently working in Firefox, your bookmark will open in a new tab there, and if you are currently working in Safari, or in Chrome, the bookmark will open there instead. If the topmost application is not a browser, the bookmark will be opened in your default browser. This makes this extension perfect for those who use more than one browser. You can always open bookmarks in the exact same way, and still have them displayed in the browser you are currently using. The supported browsers are: Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Brave, Vivaldi, Opera, Chromium, Chrome Canary, Safari Technology Preview, NAVER Whale (and SeaMonkey and SigmaOS, but only for opening bookmarks) This workflow is compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra and newer, and doesn't have any other external requirements (other than for Firefox bookmark adding support, which the workflow will tell you about if you need it). The reason for not supporting older versions than High Sierra is that Go 1.17 doesn't support older OS versions. You can still run version 1.7 of this workflow on older macOS versions if you need to be able to do that, as all versions of this workflow prior to 2.0 is based on PHP and Python rather than Go. Download from GitHub Changelog 2.0.4: Bug fix 2.0.3: Bug fix 2.0.2: Adds the ability to directly open Raindrop.io's permanent copy of a bookmark by holding shift and pressing enter while a bookmark is selected in the list. This feature requires a Raindrop.io Pro subscription to work. 2.0.1: Adds the ability to show more and better information if the authentication against Raindrop.io fails. 2.0: Version 2.0 does not really look or behave as different as the version bump might indicate, but almost everything has changed underneath to make this a better workflow: Rewritten in Go, so no dependency on PHP or Python anymore. This is important, as Apple is removing PHP from macOS 12 Monterey, and will also remove Python from macOS in the future. It's faster! Running the backend of the workflow as a compiled binary (Go) instead of a script (PHP) makes it faster, and it is also compiled as a universal binary, so it's running natively on both Apple Silicon and Intel Macs, but there are also some other changes that helps to make it faster and you will probably notice the difference if you used the old version before. Less risk for unexpected behaviour that leads to bugs, both because it can't behave different depending on which PHP or Python version you have anymore, but also because it now for example uses more reliable ways to keep track of information while navigating through the different parts of the workflow. Adding bookmarks from Firefox is now more reliable, and if things still ocationally go wrong, the workflow is better at communication that in a useful way. (I switched from Safari to Firefox myself, so it got som more attention than before) Ability to add a bookmark by copying the address, rather than getting it from the currently active browser window. To use this feature for adding a bookmark from an unsupported browser (or somewhere else), just copy the address and go to the bookmark adding feature of this workflow. It will just work, without you having to do anything more than that! (This is the secondary way to add bookmarks, so if a supported browser is the frontmost application, the workflow will still look there and ignore what you might have copied) 1.7: Some features and fixes: This version adds support for macOS Monterey! When you have updated to macOS Monterey and installed version 1.7 of this workflow you will also need to install PHP (if you haven't done that already of course), as Apple does not include PHP preinstalled anymore in Monterey. Instructions for the recommended way of doing this is available here. If you install PHP in a non default path (other than what is default for Homebrew, MacPorts etc), you might want to add that path to the path environment variable in this workflow. If you have set a bookmark as a favourite, this will now be indicated in search results and lists Bookmarks that are marked as favourites will also now by default be listed first in search results and lists, which you can change by setting the value of the environment variable favourites_first in the workflow, if you prefer the old behaviour for this. You can now browse your Unsorted bookmarks, just like you can browse your other bookmark collections. Many potential problems are also fixed with this update, so if you had problems to make this workflow function properly before, this update might fix that. 1.6.1: Fixed an issue with icon caching. 1.6: Updated to the new Raindrop.io icon, added support for the NAVER Whale browser, fixed a bug with the authentication mechanism. 1.5: Many changes: Tags now display in search results, and you can select them to list or search for bookmarks with that tag When adding a new bookmark, you can now set your own title for it, and add one or more tags While adding tags, you can either simply type them out, or select from a list of tags that matches what you have started to type You can add more than one tag by separating them with a comma: tag1, tag2, tag3 If you type out a tag that does not exist yet, it is created when you save the bookmark Hold down the cmd key if you want to save right away when selecting a tag in the list. Just pressing enter leaves the option of adding more tags. If you want to skip the new options while adding a bookmark, hold the cmd key when you select collection or when you set the title, and the options that follow will be skipped and set to default (Title from the webpage, and no tags) When adding bookmarks, the description is now set to what is specified in the webpages meta description tag, if there is one. This means that in most cases you will get the same description for your new bookmark as what is seen as description for that webpage on search engines. If there is no meta description tag, no description is set. In search results, the collection name, tags and domain name of a bookmark is now shown in the subtitle instead of the first words of the description, like before. This is because that is likely more useful in most cases. You can view the description by holding the ctrl key (And there is a setting to change this back if you would want to, see below) There are now settings! You set them by changing Alfred Environment Variables, and there are now two of them for changing what the bookmark subtitles show, and for changing how subcollections are displayed. 1.4.1: Fixed a bug that would make the bookmark adding feature fail in many cases. If that didn't work for you before this, it probably does work now. 1.4: Raindrop.io collections will now also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with a search. 1.3.1: Fixed a bug that made the collection list not loading under certain conditions. For example the first time you tried to add a bookmark. 1.3: Support for adding new bookmarks to Raindrop.io from the currently active browser. 1.2: Added option to have a keyboard shortcut for direct access to the Raindrop.io search, and added the ability to hold the option key while pressing enter to copy the link instead of opening it in a browser (you could already copy the link with cmd+c before, and that is still possible) 1.1: Implemented a proper authentication mechanism, so that this is now handled in a simple to use way that is initiated directly from the workflow if it senses that you are not authenticated yet. 1.0: Uses Raindrop's new public API to make the search inside Alfred, so that you can open the bookmarks right from Alfred without having to ho through the Raindrop.io website first. 0.9: First version. Could only open the Raindrop.io website to view the results of your query, as Raindrop's public API was not released yet
