Workflow to get next meeting location/url and open it


Recommended Posts

There's not some setting you can change, no.

 

The workflow script just extracts some text from calendar events that matches the regular expressions it has been given. It neither knows nor cares if they're URLs.

 

If you add zoommtg: URLs to your meetings instead of https: ones, and add an appropriate regex to the workflow, it will extract those URLs and they’ll open directly in Zoom.

 

Alternatively, you could edit the branch of the workflow that opens the URL to check for "zoom.us/" in the URL and open the URL in the Zoom app, instead of your default browser, if found.

Hey @deanishe Thanks for making an amazing workflow. I don't know python so I'm having trouble configuring the names of calendars to limit the search to. Can you help provide an example of the syntax needed? 

 

Specifically: CALENDARS = set()  # names of calendars to search

 

I have a lot of calendars, but I only want your workflow to show a calendar called "Joe @ Work". How do I set that up? I wasn't clear if I also needed to define calendar_1, calendar_2, etc. 

 

 

Thank you

You only need to set the variables in the workflow config sheet, not edit any code.

 

Clearly, I'm new to workflows. Thank you 

 

For any other noobs, go to the workflow in Alfred and click the [𝑥] icon for settings.

I installed the updated version from here that is supposed to be compatible with Python 3, but get the following error:

I tried changing the relevant import to `import pickle as cPickle` which then gives me a very similar error

I tried changing this to `from .util import <rest of statement>` based on some SO suggestion. That then gives me:

Since I'm not a Python developer I'm completely clueless about how to debug this. Any advice?

I also tried installing Python 2 and using that binary to run the script, which spits out this:

Welcome @millionwatts,

It is not. Those updates fix the Python 2 locations, they don’t try to update it to Python 3 which is a bigger change. When a Workflow has listings in the Alternatives column, those may be Python 3 or another language but never Python 2.

 

Install Python 2 as per the instruction in that repo, then download and try the Workflow but do not modify it beforehand.
