This workflow allows you to view, open and add Safari reading list items. Features: View all your reading list items (keyword: RL). Search for specific items: Entering "rl apple iphone" will return reading list items whose page title or URL contains both "apple" and "iphone". View (and search) only unread reading list items (keyword: RLU). Add new items to your reading list (using keyword RLADD or hotkeys). Open all unread items (keyword: RLALL). Direct download Packal page This workflow uses the awesome Alfred Objective-C framework. Updates: v1.1: Option to view only unread Reading List items (default keyword: RLU). v1.2: Option to add new items to your reading list (keyword: RLADD). If the currently active app is a browser (Safari, Webkit, Chrome, Canary and Chromium are currently supported), you can just press Enter to add the URL of its active tab. You can also add URL's by typing or pasting. The workflow uses AppleScript to add new reading list items, so it requires Safari to be running. However, if Safari wasn't running, the workflow will quit it after it's done. (If you had no open windows in Safari, you won't even notice anything). Additionally, the workflow checks if the URL you are trying to add is valid by trying to download the <head> element of the corresponding page. So if you are disconnected from the Internet, or the page you are trying to add is unreachable, the workflow will consider the URL as invalid and won't add it. To make it add that URL without checking it for validity, use the modifier key (⌃). v1.3: Option to open all reading list items (keyword: RLALL). v1.4: The open all feature has been modified to open only unread items. (You can still open all your reading list items (including the read ones) by pressing Option.) v1.4.1: Fixed a typo v1.4.2: Fixed yet another typo
I use Chrome on my desktop, but I like to do all of my reading on my iPad or iPhone and I like using the Reading List built into Safari. I've used Pocket for this before, but a lot of stuff ends up in Safari's Reading List when I'm using the Twitter client on iOS. This workflow will take your current Chrome tab and send it to Safari's Reading List. Installation Instructions From a terminal window, run: sudo gem install rb-appscript Download the workflow from: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bnxbpiabtcjfz60/Chrome%20to%20Safari%20Reading%20List.alfredworkflow Usage Type `rl` in Alfred Script copied from: https://gist.github.com/pdxmph/1342437
Hi guys, Someone else posted an excellent workflow that allows a user to add the current Chrome URL to Safari's Reading List. I tried altering the code to allow this to work with Firefox, as this is the browser I user personally, but could not get it to work. Does anyone with more techincal skills than I have know how to implement this as a workflow? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
