Any advice on Quip integration?

Recommended Posts

When asking for help, be verbose. A link back to the application’s website is the minimum. Opening the website it’s not even possible to tell at a glance if it’s even available for OS X, as it seems to be mobile only. Many people would be able to give you a hand with this, but we shouldn’t have to do all the research. The more steps you make people go through, the less help you’ll get.

Thanks for taking the time to respond, Vítor. I appreciate it and am sorry for any wasted time. 


Quip's pretty much a Google Docs equivalent and is very popular in my circles. The website is Quip.com and you're right that they don't have a specific OS X app – they operate on web, iOS and Android only. I'm not so familiar with the world of APIs, but here are some hopefully helpful pages:

Am a longtime Alfred user but still have much to learn about setting up workflows. Would really appreciate any pointers. Thanks again.

I had a look at the API and libraries. There's an official Python library, so it'd be easy enough to write a workflow with that and this.


I don't know exactly what you want to workflow to do, but the main issue that I see is that the API doesn't provide a way to easily get a list of all your stuff. There's a recent items method, but to get a list of all your items, you may need to make a lot of API calls, which would be slow.
