URL Actions -- Getting the URL and title of browser's current tab

Recommended Posts

I'd like to share with you all a workflow of mine that I use daily.

 

URL Actions

 

This is an workflow that fetches the URL and title of your browser's current tab (compatible with Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and pretty much everything else), and does things with them. For example, it can

  • Copy link in Markdown
  • Add a task to OmniFocus Pro
  • Clean up Amazon URLs


The actions are also customizable. It can

  • Open custom URLs
  • Copy custom strings to clipboard


An optional PopClip extension is also available, if one is inclined to trigger the workflow from the mouse.

Why?

I'd like to be able to select the URL in the address bar of my browser and save the URL together with the page title somewhere else -- without having to go back and forth between the browser and another app to copy and paste the two items separately.

 

Usage

Select the desired URL (⌘L to get the URL of the current tab in a browser). Fire up the workflow's associated hotkey, which is ⇧^C by default.

Came across this today, as I looked for a workflow before making one myself. Nice! I grabbed the popclip extension from the git page (link above is dead now), as I am a big popclip user too. Thought I'd leave thanks since nobody else has thanked you!
