This workflow is dead. Please check out its spiritual replacement ZotHero instead. ZotQuery Search Your Zotero Data From the Comfort of Your Keyboard. Please update (via Packal) to Version 8.5, for optimal performance. ZotQuery is an Alfred workflow that grants the user access to the data stored in their Zotero application. The Python scripts in this repo form all of the necessary components for this workflow. To download, visit the page on Packal, the workflow aggregator for Alfred, where you will be able to update to the newest versions. For a full README, filled with images (the forums limit you), visit my blog at: http://hackademic.postach.io/zotquery-an-alfred-workflow-for-zotero Unfortunately, there are too many features and too many screenshots for this forum to handle. But the page on my blog has extensive documentation. I've just pushed another update to Packal (v. 8.0.3). Please update if you have an older version. In version 6.2, "odt-scannable-cites" is a new option in the z:set export options. If you export a full Citation or a short Reference, you will get a base form Scannable Cite for that item. Version 6.0 moves the backbone of the workflow from alp to @deanishe's Workflow library, which among other things, allows for a new debugging keyword. Now, if user's wish to report an error, they can use z:bug to automatically open ZotQuery's log file, which you should include alongside your error report in this thread.. In addition, version 6.0 adds new, shorter script filter keywords. I've kept all of the old, longer keywords as well, so everything is backwards compatible, but now, users can simply use: z = zot zt = zot:t za = zot:a znc = zot:c znt = zot:tag zn = zot:n zat = z:att ztg = z:tag zc = z:col Unfortunately, version 6.0 also removes version 5.0's ability to add a PDF attachment to an item in your Zotero library. However, this and other PDF management features are under development, and I will push out an update that brings this back (with more) sooner rather than later. All of this comes in addition to the big additions from 4.0: ZotQuery now can export in both Markdown and Rich Text. This means all academics on the Mac who use Zotero can take advantage of ZotQuery's quick access to their citation data. Export individual references or citations in rich text, or export full bibliographies from Collections or Tags in rich text. Exporting preferences to the configurator. Now you can select out of 5 possible CSL styles for export. Instead of the default Chicago (author-date), you can now also choose APA, MLA, BibTeX, or Zotero's own RTF-Scan cite key format. In addition, you will also then choose which format to export in: Markdown or Rich Text. At any point, you can also change these settings using the z:settings command. Ability to search only items with attachments. This works effectively like an attachments search, since you only need to press return (not shift+return as with the other queries) in order to open the attachment. The ability now to export in BibTeX or Zotero's RTF-Scan format makes ZotQuery is utility for LaTeX writers as well as scholars who write in standard word processors. You could also easily move from BibTeX or RTF-Scan and take advantage of ZotQuery's full text exporting in Markdown or Rich Text. Either way, the workflow should be a helpful companion regardless of your writing workflow. These features are in addition to the standard features of ZotQuery: Search your Zotero library with keyword Search by author last name, title, in collection, or in tag Open, export short reference, export full citation, or append citation to temporary bibliography[/[/i]] Export full bibliography from collection or tag in alphabetical order Create and keep up-to-date a JSON cache of your Zotero data (helpful for other scripting possibilities) As a side-note, can people let me know what version of OS X you have ZotQuery working on? And what your Zotero set-up is? (Standalone? Firefox? Both?). I want to upgrade my README with testing conditions. Any info is helpful. Thank you. I hope you enjoy it. -stephen
ZotHero Rapidly search your Zotero database and copy citations. https://github.com/deanishe/zothero Features Perform full-text search across your Zotero database, including only searching specific fields Copy citations using any CSL style you have installed in Zotero Copy citations either in citation/note style or bibliography style Copy citations in any locale supported by CSL Citations are copied in multiple formats, so the right data are automatically pasted into the application you're using Trigger search while you type using the Snippet Trigger (you must assign the snippet keyword yourself in Alfred Preferences) Download & installation Download the ZotHero-XYZ.alfredworkflow file from GitHub releases, and double-click the downloaded file to install. Basic usage These are the workflow's default keywords: zot <query> — Search your Zotero database (common fields). zot:[<query>] — Search a specific field. zotconf [<query>] — View and edit workflow configuration. See the README on GitHub for full instructions. Pasting citations When you copy a citation, ZotHero puts both HTML and rich text (RTF) representations on the pasteboard. That way, when you paste a citation into an application like Word, the formatted text will be pasted, but when you paste into a text/Markdown document, the HTML will be pasted. Licence & thanks The workflow is released under the MIT licence. The Zorro icon was created by Dan Lowenstein. Citations are generated by citeproc-js (AGPLv3). Workflow stuff is taken care of by Alfred-Workflow (also MIT licence).
Hello, I'm a user of Ubuntu as well, and I've been impressed by a Unity lens which allows to look into different academic databases (PubMed, JSTor, Google Scholar) directly via a simple search in the Unity Dash. Even better, you can search in your local Zotero database. https://plus.google.com/105012666183155576119/posts/ZmvMZBzTsH2 Could it be possible to reproduce this behaviour with an alfred workflow ? It would save me and many others a lot of time. Thanks.
