Excellent workflow, very appreciated – thanks for your great input here.


(Still haven't quite given up hope that this could be combined with the OT workflow – it's almost there except that in the OT workflow the duden.de option doesn't look for the original search term, only for subsequent ones as described here: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/3644-openthesaurusde-workflow/#entry23348

It seems Duden.de changed their website and API. The workflow stopped working for me a few days ago. Is there any hope that could be fixed?

There is no API, unfortunately. The workflow parses the website HTML.


I've updated it to handle the changed HTML.


Download from GitHub or enter duden workflow:update into Alfred to grab the new version.

Thanks for finding that.
It was indeed something very minor, and it's fixed in v1.4, which is up on GitHub and Packal now. You can also update by entering duden workflow:update into Alfred.
If you're still getting bum results, use duden workflow:delcache to remove any cached results from the previous, broken version.
