better way to handle settings for workflows

Recommended Posts



I saw a lot of workflows popping up that use separate script filter to set preferences (e.g. currency converter by Luca Bigon, or Weather by David Ferguson). I think it would be nice to have a standard way to set preference in the alfred preferences, which are then available in the scripts of workflows. 


Best wishes!

Something similar has been discussed before, an interesting and possible option would be an extra workflow object that is specific for settings. That would however introduce possibly and extra level of complexity when it isn't needed. It's easy enough to save settings in a plots, SQLite db, text file...

A few of the reusable code modules (David's PHP library, phyllisstein PyAl) allow you to easily create this.
