  1. Better Dictionaries Better search and live previews for built-in macOS dictionaries. This post might be outdated, link to up-to-date README Download the latest version: Better.Dictionaries.alfredworkflow Features IPA (phonetic) pronunciations: Press ⌘↩ to hear the pronunciation.In-Alfred live previews with colors that automatically adapt to Alfred's theme: Reverse search: More relevant search results: left: macOS/Alfred built-in search, right: BetterDict If one word has multiple, unrelated meanings with different origin, they are showed as diffrent entries (in the above example, see "arm" has two entries at the top)Import any compatible dictionary Setup After importing the workflow, first type .setup-better-dictionaries into Alfred and follow the instructions for granting permissions. Importing a Dictionary After setup, type .dict-import into Alfred. Select the dictionary you want to import. Dictionary-specific Keywords and Hotkeys After a dictionary is imported, a script filter and a hotkey trigger is automatically created into the workflow editor. Freshly-installed workflow without any imported dictionaries: Two hotkeys and keyword triggers each automatically added after importing two dictionaries. They come pre-labeled with dictionary names: This allows you to assign hotkeys and keywords for specific dictionaries. For example, below you can see how I have manually assigned keywords thesaurus and defn to the thesaurus and dictionary respectively. In addition, I can trigger the dictionary search using ⌃⌥⌘D. Word Lookup You can use the hotkeys/keywords created above for directly searhcing specific dictionaries. That's the recommended way for dictionaries that you use frequently. For the infrequently used dictionaries for which you haven't assigned any hotkeys/keywords, follow this: 1. Type lookup into Alfred. You'll see a list of all dictionaries imported into BetterDict. 2. Select the dictionary to search, and type the search query. Notes and Warnings [*]Importing a dictionary could take as much as 30 minutes on old machines or if there's significant CPU activity from other apps.[*]After each mac restart, for the first time when you run the workflow, expect a comparatively slower search. Subsequent searches should be instant.[*]This workflow takes a LOT of space on disk. Take a look at the comparison: # Built-in dictionaries Oxford Thesaurus: 7 MB Oxford Dictionary: 36 MB # After importing into BetterDict Oxford Thesaurus: 101 MB (html files) Oxford Dictionary: 442 MB (html files) Search index for two: 730 MB (apart from html) Known IssuesThe workflow doeesn't work if the theme is Alfred Classic. If you must use that theme, duplicate that theme and use the duplicated one.

Troubleshooting SSL Errors If you're having SSL issues, try temporarily disabling it by setting the workflow environment variable ALFRED_PT_SSL_VERIFICATION to False. This will bypass SSL verification as a workaround while waiting for the SSL certificate to be rectified. You can check Power Thesaurus's SSL certificate status here. Be sure to set it back to True when all's green. Other Errors For other errors, please open an issue describing how you got the error and together with the logs from Alfred > Workflows > Debugging Mode if possible. There's no proper error handling in place yet, so we'll have to troubleshoot things this way for now. Licensing and Acknowledgement This workflow is released under the MIT Licence.

By using this workflow, you acknowledge, understand and signify your agreement to Power Thesaurus Website's terms and conditions, and privacy statement.
  3. Use the thesaurus service provided by words.bighugelabs.com to get synonyms and antonyms to words. To set up, get an API key and set it in the Workflow Environment Variables. You can then check for synonyms and antonyms by calling syn or ant followed by a space and the word you wish to check against. Alternatively, select a word and press the shortcut you defined to get the results. Pressing ↵ on a word will paste it to the front most app, which is useful when writing a text and want to change a word in place. If you want to use one of the results to refine your query, press ⌘↵ (synonyms for the word) or ⌥↵ (antonyms for the word). Download | Source
  4. Good Morning. I'm very excited about Alfred. I am reviewing all the workflows available and checking that they obey a usual task and are useful. I wanted to ask if there is any workflow available for wordreference.com. In particular I use a lot of synonyms when I write. It is the only quality website for this function in Spanish. I think it also supports other languages. Best regards
  5. Please don't laugh at the code, I write applescript by copy-tweaking! Uses thesauras.altervista.org and ursanrazvan's applescript library. Enjoy! I'll aim to post any updates on my tumblr http://jaspalsahota.tumblr.com/post/48358079872/thesaurus-workflow-for-alfredapp-2 Here's a screenshot If anyone makes this nicer/cleaner etc. please let me know.

  6. A simple workflow to explore the English language via Agile Tortoise, Inc's excellent interface to Princeton University's WordNet database. Uses the keyword "term" followed by the word or term you want to define/explore. Download / Source If you like it, Agile Tortoise's Terminology app does the same thing for iPhone/iPad (NB: I have no affiliation to them). - isometry
