From Alfred to Inbox


#1

Hey,
I think it’d be a great feature to have an Alfred-Workflow that allows sending typed content directly into the set inbox, e.g. like so

dyn A thought
dyn Another thought

Do you think this could be done, given that dynalist would have to be accessed via browser?


#2

nope, non?
Or might this better be addressed as an API-Idea?


#3

Yeah, more like an API. Or does Alfred support something like URL scheme?


#4

Hi @Erica

Alfred (alfredapp.com) has a really nice python library for writing workflows. It would be pretty easy to integrate using a dynalist API.


#5

API is in the works! :smile:

Soon this can come true :star2:


#6

Whoa there’s an API? Is it alive?

There seems to be some instructions at https://apidocs.dynalist.io/#send-to-inbox

Alfred workflows for HTTP POST seem to exist. I read the github code of this one and it might not take too much alterations to become a dynalist workflow. https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1132-trello-workflow-16-updated-42518/

Sorry, I don’t have much free time to tinker with it, but maybe someone is interested!

Yay it works! @Danny_Nelson wrote the curl code in another post. I deleted the notes function since I don’t use it.

make the workflow yourself with keyword and the code at Does anyone have curl code to "add to inbox"? Sorry I am not good at programming
