Based on a previous extension for Alfred 1, made a quick workflow to add reminders to Fantastical:

It allows the full syntax as it is normally used in the app input.

 

If you use this line:

 

parse sentence q add immediately true

 

Then it doesn't bother you with the drop-down.

Thanks, lmartins! 

 

ctwise, thanks for your suggestion, I tried it out but am in the same camp as lmartins. I like to be able to review the reminder to make sure it parsed it correctly and to set some options like alerts and such. Good to know for other scripts though.

If you use TaskPaper, you may want to substitute the Applescript in this workflow with the one here: http://www.hogbaysoftware.com/wiki/ParseClipboardInFantastical , which converts a TaskPaper @due(YYYY-MM-DD) tag to the text

 

due YYYY-MM-DD
 
which Fantastical will parse as a Reminder.
 
Updated 2015-03-25: Change Fantastical to Fantastical 2 & it works perfectly with F2.

What's to update? This workflow consists of a 3 line Applescript:

tell application "Fantastical"
		parse sentence q
	end tell

All the real work is done in Fantastical.  And the parse command is the only Applescript command for Fantastical, so there's no exposed functionality that isn't being taken advantage of by the workflow as it is.

I've modified this to prepend "remind " at the beginning of the string to add a reminder without having to type "remind"

on alfred_script(q)
    set x to "remind "
    set y to x & q
	tell application "Fantastical"
		parse sentence y
	end tell
end alfred_script

Thought this might be useful to others.
