New Workflow: Alfred Bible

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am always trying to cut and paste bible references into my notes. But, there is almost always extra formatting carried over or it did not come out in the format that I wanted. So, I created the workflow to make it easier for me.

 

This workflow will request Bible passages from the "Ephesians 4:14" website:  http://www.4-14.org.uk/xml-bible-web-service-api.

 

Access to this API is currently free. This workflow will request the given verse from Alfred edit line or from the current OS X selection, request the verse(s), and return it in the clipboard and a notification. You can then paste it where ever you want. You can always change the "Copy to Clipboard" box to also paste into current application.

 

It currently allows switching between the King James Bible and the Thai King James Bible (the only ones I use.). It is working great with Thai currently, except for the name of the book is still in English. I will be working on that one.

 

I will be adding more functionality to this workflow in the future and eventually have a full Bible study app running and controlled in Alfred.

I just added the translation of the English bible books names to Thai in the Thai translation. I did a brute force replacement, nothing eloquent. But, it works. Also added a hotkey to insert both English and Thai translations.

Love it! Any chance you can create a workflow for NKJV?

thanks a bunch!

 

Sorry, the web site I use to pull up the verses does not have the NKJV. They only have versions that are public domain, which the NKJV isn't since it has a copy right.

Understand.  Thank you for the reply.

 

PS: Is there anyway to create a workflow that draws the information from an installed app on my system that contains NKJV text?

Hi, That would depend on the application. If the application has a way for external programs to access it's information (AppleScript library or URI lookup hooks), then it would be easy to integrate it with Alfred. Otherwise, it is nearly impossible since copy righted texts are usually encrypted to prevent this.

just wanted to say thanks for this workflow.  I use this often.  

 

I do wish that other Thai versions were available, but I understand the limitations.
