PHP Alfred Workflow ScriptFilter

Latest Version on Packagist Build Status Quality Score Code Coverage Total Downloads


Why

Starting with Alfred 3.4.1 you can define variables for individual items and variables and icon for each various modifiers (ctrl, cmd, shift, fn, alt) of each item. That makes rendering the results for Alfred a little tougher than usual with the current tools available, hence this package.

If you don't need the new fields introduced by Alfred 3.4.1 and 3.5, you might want to use Joe Tannenbaum's package. His API might be a little less heavier than mine.

Installation

composer require godbout/alfred-workflow-scriptfilter

Usage

The main ScriptFilter class is a singleton. You can create many instances of all the other classes: Item, Variable, Icon, and the Mod classes: Ctrl, Fn, Shift, Alt, and Cmd.

You may check the structure and options of the Alfred Script Filter JSON Format here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/script-filter/json/

require __DIR__ . '/../vendor/autoload.php';

use Godbout\Alfred\Workflow\ScriptFilter;

echo ScriptFilter::output();

will result in:

{"items":[]}

You can add items, variables, rerun automatically your script:

ScriptFilter::add(
    Item::create()
        ->uid('uidd')
        ->title('titlee')
        ->subtitle('subtitlee')
        ->arg('argg')
        ->icon(
            Icon::create('icon path')
        )
        ->valid()
        ->match('matchh')
        ->autocomplete('autocompletee')
        ->mod(
            Ctrl::create()
                ->arg('ctrl arg')
                ->subtitle('ctrl subtitle')
                ->valid()
        )
        ->copy('copyy')
        ->largetype('largetypee')
        ->quicklookurl('quicklookurll')
);

ScriptFilter::add(
    Variable::create('food', 'chocolate'),
    Variable::create('dessert', 'red beans')
);

ScriptFilter::rerun(4.5);

$anotherItem = Item::create()
    ->icon(
        Icon::createFileicon('icon pathh')
    )
    ->mods(
        Shift::create()
            ->subtitle('shift subtitle'),
        Fn::create()
            ->arg('fn arg')
            ->valid(true)
    );

$thirdItem = Item::create()
    ->variables(
        Variable::create('guitar', 'fender'),
        Variable::create('amplifier', 'orange')
    )
    ->mod(
        Alt::create()
            ->icon(
                Icon::createFileicon('alt icon path')
            )
            ->variables(
                Variable::create('grade', 'colonel'),
                Variable::create('drug', 'power')
            )
    );

ScriptFilter::add($anotherItem, $thirdItem);

echo ScriptFilter::output();

will result in:

    "rerun":4.5,
    "variables":{
        "food":"chocolate",
        "dessert":"red beans"
    },

        {
            "icon":{

                "type":"fileicon"

            "mods":{

                    "subtitle":"shift subtitle"
                },
                "fn":{
                    "arg":"fn arg",
                    "valid":true
                }
            }
        },
        {
            "mods":{
                "alt":{
                    "icon":{
                        "path":"alt icon path",
                        "type":"fileicon"
                    },
                    "variables":{
                        "grade":"colonel",
                        "drug":"power"
                    }
                }
            },
            "variables":{
                "guitar":"fender",
                "amplifier":"orange"
            }
        }
    ]
}

You can sort your results ascendingly, descendingly, by title or anything else:


/**
 * Will sort the items ascendingly
 * based on titles.
 */
ScriptFilter::add(...);
ScriptFilter::sortItems();
ScriptFilter::output();

/**
 * Will sort the items descendingly
 * based on subtitles.
 */
ScriptFilter::add(...);
ScriptFilter::sortItems('desc', 'subtitle');
ScriptFilter::output();

You can filter your results (you might want to do this with the input from the user) based on any field from your items:


/**
 * Only items with a title that contains
 * 'start' will show up in the output.
 */
ScriptFilter::add(...);
ScriptFilter::filterItems('start');
ScriptFilter::output();

/**
 * Only items with a subtitle that contains
 * 'end' will show up in the output.
 */
ScriptFilter::add(...);
ScriptFilter::filterItems('end', 'subtitle');
ScriptFilter::output();

Helpers

There's a couple of helpers that should make your code a bit more enjoyable to write. (Or not.)

ScriptFilter

The ScriptFilter can be written using a fluent interface:

ScriptFilter::create()
    ->item($item)
    ->variable(Variable::create('gender', 'undefined'))
    ->items($anotherItem, $oneMoreItem)
    ->variables($aVariable, $anotherVariable)
    ->rerun(4)
    ->item(Item::create());

Item

Item::createDefault();
// same same
Item::create()->default();
// same same
Item::create()->type('default');


Item::createFile();
// same same
Item::create()->file();
// same same
Item::create()->type('file');


Item::createSkipcheck();
// same same
Item::create()->skipcheck();
// same same
Item::create()->type('file:skipcheck');


Item::create()->copy('text to copy');
// same same
Item::create()->text('copy', 'text to copy');


Item::create()->largetype('show large');
// same same
Item::create()->text('largetype', 'show large');

Icon

Icon::create('~/Desktop');
// same same
Icon::create()->path('~/Desktop');


Icon::createFileicon('~/Desktop');
// same same
Icon::create('~/Desktop')->fileicon();


Icon::createFiletype('~/Desktop');
// same same
Icon::create()->path('~/Desktop')->filetype();

Variable

Variable::create('guitar', 'fender');
// same same
Variable::create()->name('guitar')->value('fender');


/**
 * Anywhere you use the ->variable(...) fluent interface
 * you can pass the name and value arguments directly
 * if this is your thing.
 */
...->variable(Variable::create('gender', 'unknown');
// same same
...->variable('gender', 'unknown');

Full API

You might want to check the tests to see the full API: tests

The API should mostly help you avoid typing too much and putting wrong data where Alfred is expecting something strict.
