How to get text information from a Chrome Extension with Alfred?

Recommended Posts

I currently use Streamkeys (http://www.streamkeys.com/) to map media keys to music playing in chrome. I would like to integrate the extensions into  Alfred by fetching the song name/artist from Streamkeys rather than clicking on the dropdown in chrome. I also use Hammerspoon/Lua and several AppleScripts that might be useful. 


I'm really looking for any ideas of what software/technology to use. Has anyone pulled information from a chrome extension into Alfred or from Chrome in general?


I'm currently avoiding the issue of communicating with a chrome extension by using an AppleScript to fetch all open tab names, which usually includes the name of the song and artist (at least for Soundcloud).
