manage Alfred workflow via yaml templates

Project Description

|version| |license|_ |pypi_version| |python_versions| |circle-ci|_ |codeclimate|_

The `Alfred Workflows`_ management tool with a *divide and rule* manner.

Alfred Workflows contains README and scripts in single ``info.plist``,
and it's hard to maintain by common development methods,
edit script with your favorite editor or track script changes with VCS.

``yamlfred`` translate ``info.plist`` and generates files,
simplified configuration, called ``workflow.yml``, scripts and README.

This enable us to edit each script files or track changes with VCS.

In addition, yamlfred has abilities to extract or create Alfred workflow,
translate a ``workflow.yml`` into an ``info.plist`` and vice a versa.


To install yamlfred, use pip install::

$ pip install yamlfred

For the case of uninstall, use pip uninstall yamlfred::

$ pip uninstall yamlfred


- Extract existing Alfred workflow::

$ yamlfred extract {{workflow}}.alfredworkflow

Creates following ``{{workflow}}`` directory::

|-- ...
|-- info.plist
|-- ...

- convert ``info.plist`` (in current directory)
into yaml template (``workflow.yml``) and scripts and README::

$ yamlfred to_yaml

- convert yaml template (``workflow.yml``) into ``info.plist``::

$ yamlfred to_plist

- create Alfred workflow (`{{workflow}}.alfredworkflow``)
from ``workflow.yml``, scripts and README::

$ yamlfred create {{workflow}}


These Alfred workflows uses yamlfred:

- `alfred-switch-vpn <>`_
- `alfred-switch-bluetooth <>`_
- `alfred-switch-audio <>`_

On can upload github release page via CI services, such as `Circle CI <>`_
with `hub <>`_ command and `GITHUB_TOKEN`
consult `circle.yml` in these repositories for detailed information.
