What's the easiest way to show and filter a list of urls?


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I have some links which I use daily (they aren't in my Chrome bookmarks):

 

  1. Admin - http://
  2. Production - http://
  3. Log - http://
  4. Hangout - http://
  5. ...

I would like to create a workflow i.e. "links" to show these links and filter them as I type, if I click in the link it should open the url in Chrome.

 

I didn't find a similar example, all of them seemed too complex for what I want. Is there a simple way to create such workflow?

 

Thanks

Create a new workflow. There's a template for opening a URL in a browser. Set a keyword, e.g., admin, and fill in the URL. Then add the same two blocks over and over again for each keyword and each URL. At the end you'll have a complete workflow with all of your keywords and URLs.

Right, I ended up with a script.

LINKS = {
  'Pablo'  =>   'http://pablocantero.com',
  'GitHub' =>   'http://github.com/phstc'
}


query = '{query}'.strip.downcase


if query == ''
  selected = LINKS
else
  selected = LINKS.reject do |name, link|
    name.to_s.downcase.index(query).nil?
  end
end


output = %{<?xml version="1.0"?><items>}


selected.each do |name, link|
  output += %{
  <item uid="#{name}" arg="#{link}" autocomplete="#{name}">
    <title>#{name}</title>
  <icon>link.png</icon>
  </item>
  }
end


output += "</items>"


puts output
