Passing variables to Clipboard in Workflow

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to pass some variables in a workflow. The set-up of the workflow is as follows:


Screen Shot 2017-01-10 at 15.02.10.png


Where the script is 


from datetime import date
from datetime import timedelta
import json

today = date.today()
offset = (today.weekday() - 2) % 7
last_wednesday = today - timedelta(days=offset)

d = {'alfredworkflow': 
    			{'last_wednesday': last_wednesday.strftime('%Y-%m-%d')

print json.dumps(d)

And the copy to clipboard part is:


SET @startdate = {var:last_wednesday};


The issue is the {var:last_wednesday} part is coming up empty and I don't understand why as I've modelled this after another functioning workflow. When pasting I only get


SET @startdate = ;


Does anyone know where the error is?
