Supercharge your Alfred 🎩 workflows by building them in Rust πŸ¦€!

πŸš€ Getting started

This project contains a powerpack crate which provides types for developing script filter Alfred workflows in Rust. It also provides a command line tool to initialize, build, and install workflows built using the powerpack crate.

Firstly, install the command line tool.

cargo install powerpack-cli

Now create a new project using a similar API as cargo new or cargo init.

powerpack new myworkflow && cd myworkflow

This will create a new Rust project as well as a workflow/ directory containing information about your Alfred workflow. The following will create a release build of the workflow and copy it to the workflow/ directory.

powerpack build --release

Now you can link it to Alfred. The following will symlink the workflow/ directory to the Alfred preferences folder.

powerpack link

Now you can run the workflow from Alfred ✨!

To package a .alfredworkflow file for release you can run the following.

powerpack package

The release will be available at target/workflow/myworkflow.alfredworkflow.

🀸 Usage

The following is a "Hello World!" Alfred workflow built using powerpack.

use std::env;
use std:(error):Error;
use std::iter;

fn main() -> Result<(), Box> {
    // Alfred passes in a single argument for the user query.
    let arg = env::args().nth(1);
    let query = arg.as_deref().unwrap_or("");

    // Create an item to show in the Alfred drop down.
    let item = powerpack:(Item):new("Hello World!")
        .subtitle(format!("Your query was '{}'", query));

    // Output the item to Alfred!
    powerpack::output(iter::once(item))?;

    Ok(())
}

This would render an item as shown.
