Love this.  It's nearly perfect.  Any chance you could add location to the reminders syntax?

 

"r Take out trash when I get home"

"r Take out trash when I arrive [at] home"

"r Take out trash at home"

"r Take out trash arrive [at] home"

if you want to combine date and time, use the pattern: 

 

r on 30-03-13 11:00 to Geld storten

 

Great, that worked for me! But there is one thing I would like to change.

When I wanted to add ''r on 02-04-13 07:30 to Toilet schoonmaken'' the time wasn't right. When I put am behind the time, it worked.

 

Is it possible to use 24hr time instead of the 12hr time?

I believe this is purely dependent on your system settings. When I (in the UK) type ''r on 02-04-13 07:30 to Toilet schoonmaken'' it adds the reminder at 7.30am. Check system preferences > Language & Text > Region > Times

Great extension! A must have definitely.

Could it be possible that the reminder app closes whenever the extension ends it's functionality (if I either create or not the reminder, the app stays open after the workflow gets called). That would be awesome =)

Awesome idea with set reminder in number of minutes or days. I think it would be more awesome if use both parameters at same time. Like this:

 

r in 2 days 5 hours to Call Lucy

or

r in 2d5h to Call Lucy

 

What do you think?

 

I'll look into it.

"r Take out trash at home"

I did look into this but it seems it's not possible to access reminders' locations via applescript.

Seriously, I wish I could click the "Like This" button more than once. Gets better every other minute! No need for Reminders.app to stay or even start running is just brilliant, didn't even think that was feasible. Again, thank you!

You will notice it's still opening (in the background) whilst it's fetching or creating reminders, but it should revert to whatever state it was once it's done.

dear jack james,

 

as a passionate procrastinator, something like this would come in really handy for me :

 

 

r tomorrow 11:00 milk the goat
 

 

also, something like this:

 

 

r help
 

 

finally, i am noticing performance problems. sometimes, after entering "r tomorrow", i continue typing and alfred2 doesn't seem to recognize the command. is that a common problem?

I'll look into adding those.

The reason for this is Alfred will periodically need to fetch the current reminders. If you're noticing that he doesn't seem to recognize the command, you might need to wait a bit for him to catch up.

You can actually change how often he checks in the workflow itself, by changing 

 

property cacheExpires : 2 * minutes

 

 to whatever you want (it needs to be changed in the "Script Filter" step). I'll also look into the possibility of still correctly showing the "add reminder" prompt even whilst this check is happening.

So seamless I didn't even notice that! Now nobody can complain ;) - For my complaint/question which honestly is not a totally necessary feature so please do not take your time if it's difficult... it shouldn't really even be a reminder... Anyways, is it possible for web addresses to be parsed correctly? Can they be encapsulated in double quotes or parenthesis or something similar so they don't get picked apart?

 

Like I said, if it takes much effort it is not totally necessary, but scenario of usage, to give you a couple examples... remind myself to check on an auction ending or visit a website later when I'll have the time. Either way, really appreciate you making and expanding this workflow to do pretty much everything Reminders!

Can you give me an example of what you're typing into Alfred that's not working?

and it get's chopped up into... 

http www.alfredforum.com topic 917 reminders page 4 entry8958

I'm afraid I can't replicate this, for me it works properly:

EDIT: Found it. It's when you use the "in list" pattern.
