need help with workflow: how to I pass search phrase to HoudahSpot?

Recommended Posts



my workflow works fine until HS´S default window is open with the search-text box active.


Maybe I have a very stupid brain day today but I don´t find the next module for this:




I need the next step to paste the argument between the "..." into the active text-box.

If you want to pass some data other than a file or URL to an application, you have to do it a different way.
Remove your Open in App action and replace it with a Run Script action. Set language to /usr/bin/osascript (AS) and paste this in the Script box: 

tell application "HoudahSpot"
    search "{query}"
end tell

Connect it to your keyword and you should be good to go.
