Google Quick Search Box integration

bramhubbell says:

I have always loved being able to quickly add tasks via Quicksilver, but it seems that the days of Quicksilver are coming to a close. The developer has released a new app with Google called Quick Search Box (QSB) which is quite similar to Quicksilver. The latest version works quite well. Has anyone begun trying to implement an RTM plugin for the application?

Peace,
Bram

This would be great! I thing quick search box has a big future ahead since it is now also available for windows. A RTM plugin would be great!

I'd second that - an RTM plugin is needed!

I just dug into the QSB built in iTunes plugin and noticed it's all written in Applescript. I developed an Applescript-based integration with Entourage, and I think I'll be able to take bits and pieces and port it to QSB.

I'll give it a try over the next few days/weeks and post back if I can figure it out.

Wow, QSB is horribly undocumented. This will take longer than I thought...

+1 for a QSB plug in… i'd love that. (the single most reason i can't move away from quicksilver)

@roopesh

I was thinking of doing the same thing (run via applescript). I need a quick entry mode like crazy. Have you made progress on this at all, or should I start looking at coding my own?

I hope you guys have some success with this. I've been using QSB for the past week and I'm loving it. All it's now lacking for me is the ability to search my gmail and RTM integration.

bramhubbell says:

I'm hoping that those brave and much more tech savvy than me people on this forum can figure out how to develop an RTM plugin. Everyday I hope!

Thanks.

@roopesh

Was just looking through your Entourage script to see if I could port it over to GQSB. That's a huge script, man. I'm digging through it, but I could use a hand to weed out the unimportant parts.

Just as a poll, would people be happy (for now) if there was just a way to dump a new task in the Inbox? Or do people absolutely need list integration?

Inbox is all I need.

Does the new Smart Add handle all that?

Posted 5 years ago

funkeye says:

Theoretically, you should be able to use the smart add syntax to put it wherever you want, but the old Quicksilver plugin would allow you to specify the list directly.

Anyone versed in getting the Auth to work via applescript? Or is there someone out there who knows more about Python than I do? I am drowning in this. It's over my head.

Dumping a new task would do me for starters.

I'm also for development of a RTM plugin exactly like the Quicksilver plugin. I have QS installed solely for the purpose of easily adding tasks to RTM. It is THE QUICKEST way to add tasks.

funkeye says:

It will be hard to implement the QSB plugin the same as the QS plugin, due to the lack of third pane support in QSB. But with Smart Add, you can designate lists and such inline.

I would also love a qsb-plugin with the smart-add-syntax.

bump

funkeye says:

The smart-add syntax is built into the API, so it would automatically be included in the QSB plugin.

Again, if there is someone who is more adept at either Objective C, or Python than me, or someone who has actually gotten the auth to work via Applescript, let me know. I have been pecking at it here and there, but no luck.

Or if anyone knows a way to (instead of using the auth token), send a username / password to RTM, QSB has a built in accounts manager, so we could use that.

Could you not just get it to use the mail to rtm feature? i.e. just run
a command in the background with sendmail. Something like:

sendmail user@rmilk.com
subject: the task tomorrow at 2pm !1 @home #.tag http://a.url

Posted 5 years ago

odelaney Pro says:

I mean so QSB sends the text that the user inputs to the subject part of the sendmail command. Not sure if this would be possible, but it might work. I have this kind of thing working with rtm with an applescript I've put together a while back.

funkeye says:

Yeah, but it's not exactly the most efficient way of doing it. That method would assume that people have a desktop email client to tap into, which I personally don't like to use. Building an actual QSB plugin would be MUCH easier to use once it's created.

Just in case people are curious, I have been working on this. Had to teach myself Python to do it, but I am about 90% there. Having some trouble with the auth right now, but once my comment gets approved on the API mailing list (*cough*seriously-it's-been-2-days*cough*) I should *hopefully* get that bug worked out. Once I get it working, it will be open sourced so people can clean up my amateur python code, and possibly add new features to it.

But god damn it, I was tired of waiting.

This has been updated to work with the newest version of QSB (which you should seriously get. It's a huge improvement.) You can download here: http://ow.ly/1rBsr
