SSL Errors

If you're having SSL issues, try temporarily disabling it by setting the workflow environment variable ALFRED_PT_SSL_VERIFICATION to False. This will bypass SSL verification as a workaround while waiting for the SSL certificate to be rectified. You can check Power Thesaurus's SSL certificate status here. Be sure to set it back to True when all's green.

Other Errors

For other errors, please open an issue describing how you got the error and together with the logs from Alfred > Workflows > Debugging Mode if possible. There's no proper error handling in place yet, so we'll have to troubleshoot things this way for now.

There's probably a smarter way to do this, but when preparing a new release, don't forget to:

  1. Bump version file
  2. Bump the exported workflow following the format PowerThesaurus-x.x.x.alfredworkflow
  3. Bump alfredworkflow.version field in metadata.json or just re-export the entire metadata.json from Alfred > Workflows
