Use Script Filter Output as Input?

Recommended Posts

I understand that a Script Filter will output data in a JSON format so that Alfred can use that info to display. I'm wondering if there is a way to get that JSON info and use it as an input for another step.

My use case is this. I already have the GCal workflow downloaded [https://github.com/deanishe/alfred-gcal]. This works well, but I have a slightly different use case that this doesn't cover. Specifically, I want to get a plain text list of free time based on my google calendar that I can paste somewhere like gmail. GCal workflow already has good support for selecting the calendars you care about, and getting a list of events for a given day. However, it just displays them in Alfred via a Script Filter.


I am hoping to be able to call gcal as an external trigger, then get the output in some format I can consume within my own workflow.


Is there an easy way to do this with Alfred?
