How to save selected text as Alfred snippet?

Want to move from Typinator to Alfred Snippets but miss this one thing. Ability to convert selected text into a snippet instantly.

Can I do the same with Alfred?

This is possible with a more advanced workflow. It would take a initial setup. But once setup should pretty straight forward. Created a POC. If you would like to see it and modify it please let me know.
