Hello,

Is it possible to launch a search in Tembo using Alfred? Either with a string search or with a applescript.

I know in HoudahSpot it is possible to do it via string search (e.g. hhspot://blitzSearch?searchString=*&filenameFlag=YES). What about Tembo?

Hi!

Tembo does not implement a custom URL scheme.

It does however support AppleScript and Mac OS X Services.

You may start a new search using the following script:

 

[CODE]

tell application "Tembo"

textSearch "Houdah"

activate

end tell

[/CODE]


Best,
Pierre Bernard

Thanks. It's not the perfect solution (I was hoping for something to integrate with Alfred or LaunchBar), but it does speed up my workflow.

Hi!

LaunchBar has the ability to assign abbreviations to Services.

I see in this description of v1.7.6:
[QUOTE]New feature: Implements a custom URL scheme for invocation from LaunchBar, Alfred, Butler, …[/QUOTE]
But I see (google, check help) no information about that custom URL, can anyone help?

PS: I'm using Mac Appstore 1.7.6 version.

Thanks in advance.

The URL has the following format:
 
 
[CODE]
tmbo://search?searchString=Houdah%20Software&groupKey=EVERNOTE&queryFocus=name
 
[/CODE]
 
Possible values for the optional groupKey argument are:
 
 
[CODE]
APPLICATIONS, BOOKMARKS, CONTACT, DIRECTORIES, DOCUMENTS, EVENT_TODO, EVERNOTE, FONTS, IMAGES, MESSAGES, MOVIES, MUSIC, PDF, SOURCE, SYSTEM_PREFS, XML
 
[/CODE]
 
Possible values for the optional queryFocus argument are:
 
 
[CODE]
default, name, content, any, tag, whereFrom
 
[/CODE]

Best,
Pierre Bernard

Hi!

URL format has changed for Tembo 2.0. The new format is:

tembo2://search?query=[QUERY]&location=[LOCATION]&group=[GROUP]

QUERY goes into the search field

LOCATION is that path to the folder to search. You can use ~ to refer to your home directory. E.g. location=~/Documents

Possible GROUPs are: APPLICATIONS, BOOKMARKS; CONTACTS, DIRECTORIES, CALENDAR, EVERNOTE, FONTS, IMAGES, MESSAGES, MOVIES, MUSIC, PDF, SOURCE, SYSTEM_PREFS, XML

Best,

Pierre Bernard
