How to use multiline string in Universal Action?


Recommended Posts

My attempt:  https://github.com/bhishanpdl/Shared/blob/master/Alfred_questions/aa 05 universal action practice.alfredworkflow

 

I was trying to do some manipulation on multiline string using Alfred Universal Action. But only single line can be processed. How to process multi-line strings?

 

 

**I am trying to do following**

 

```

This is item 1.

This it item 2.

```

 

I am trying to create an Alfred Universal Action that will append user suggested prefix (for example:  “1. “ which will make it list in Markdown).

How can we do so?

 

Can we give any prefix to the lines? Such as “1. “,   “</br>” and so on?

 

Final output will look like:

```

1. This is item 1.

1. This it item 2.

```

Did you actually look in Alfred's debugger? It tells you exactly what's wrong.

Don't use "with input as {query}". Always use "with input as argv".
