Good Sunday everyone.
For the Mac users out there who are also Alfred users (and if you’re a mac user and NOT an Alfred user you’re doing something wrong with your life ) I made a simple workflow to search through the documentation of the official Kirby site directly from the app.
It’s very simple. You just type
K to activate the workflow…
…then search whatever you need to search…
…hit enter and you’re done
Nothing super fancy, just a simple tool to speed up the search process.
It’s on my dropbox if you want to give it a try
Very practical. Thank you!
That might be a reason to update to alfred 3
Thank’s for your work
Very nice. I’m still on Alfred 2, but it works there in a different way too. Just create a custom Web-Search in the Settings-Panel under Features.
This is the way I’m doing it, too. And for the forum:
And that’s exactly what I did
Was just sharing the snippet this way one can simply add it and they’re done
Edit: I used the workflow only because it’s a bit more flexible
Works like a charm - thanks!
If you’re on Windows, you should try the excellent Wox:
To add Kirby docs and forum searches, go to the settings (right click > settings), open the plugin tab and scroll down to the web searches plugin. There you’ll be able to add your searches, it should look like this:
Very nice! Thanks for posting.
For everyone who is using
DASH - it integrates well with Alfred and has a kirby-docs package integrated.
Cool, custom searches are very handy and something I used Alfred for all the time.
Then I discovered you could do the custom searches directly in the Chrome Omnibox. If you use custom searches regularly (and use Chrome) you might want to have a looksie.
Being a massive fan of the custom search feature in Alfred (Mac productivity tool) I was super excited to discover Chrome has a similar feature.
You’re coding away, and need to search for something. So you open Chrome, go to the docs or forum page on getkirby and then search.
Using custom searches
In Chrome on any page you tap into the search bar kd (Kirby Docs) or kf (Kirby Forum) then tab you can then type in your query, press return and it will open the results page.
