Want results of a bash script in search area

Recommended Posts

I have a workflow that works and the end action is a post notification. How do I get the end result of the script to appear in the search results? Similar to the attached screenshot.  Is it a specific trigger or notification? Right now I have a:


keyword trigger > Script > Post Notification

In essence, you have to use a script filter and process the results in JavaScript (in effect creating an array and processing it with JavaScript). Sadly, that's about all the assistance I can provide for I find JavaScript an entirely impenetrable morass (notwithstanding the fact that, with considerable assistance from others, I have included it in a couple of my workflows: for example, my Search files by extension workflow).


I think that to obtain much more useful help than I can provide you'd need to share your workflow on some file sharing site (transfer.sh, for example).


Sorry not to be as helfpul as others who will doubtless contribute in due course!

For reference, it doesn’t have to be JavaScript. While JSON did start from JavaScript, every major language nowadays handles it. At the end of the day it’s just text with a specific structure, you can even write it by hand.

In the dte Script Filter, delete the last line and add instead:


cat <<EOF
{ "items": [{ "title": "$(get_day_of_week "$input")" }] }


For more information, see Script Filter JSON Format or the Getting Started example workflows (press + on the bottom left, in the workflow list).
