Google Search in-line results workflow

Recommended Posts

Update: This doesn't work anymore, not sure if it is Mavericks or not, but regardless I've created a completely rewritten python version of the extension which you can download here http://goo.gl/uhzK7I . It is just as hacky as the original version of the extension and uses a deprecated API from Google that is currently being aggressively rate-limited, which all goes to say this may stop working at any time. Enjoy!

Here's a hacky attempt at my first workflow. It is a google search workflow that lists results from google as you type. It probably needs a bit more work, but is pretty cool. I used the google-search gem and https://github.com/canadaduane/alfred2-ruby-framework in addition to some code from the Google Autocomplete plugin written in ruby by Ted Wise. I've only tested it on my Mac, so let me know if it breaks on yours. 

 

Here's the link: http://goo.gl/ufg81 (see new version posted above)

Sorry for the lame question but do I need anything extra for this to work? Because when I type gs, Alfred will just show me the normal google search, with no previews.

? I don't have this workflow but I do not see any previews in the screenshot... I would be very surprised this thread doesn't have 100+ replies if the workflow really showed previews of the results. I think your getting all there is to get. Sorry I can't give you anything solid... hope this helps a bit.

Just updated my original post with an updated version of the workflow that should work, for now...

 

I'm running 10.9.1 (Mavericks) and just installed the new python version and it works great. Thanks!
