Reminders meets Alfred [Update 2.1]
Assuming you are a PowerPack user, simply download the extension on this page and double click it. This will bring up Alfred’s preferences and automatically setup the extension. The syntax is described inside and at the moment let you specify one of your list of activities in which you want to add your tasks. You can add a due date and even a bunch of words as note, always via Alfred.
The main syntax for this extension is the following:
• add activityBody (notes within brackets) @ dueDate alertHour # listName
Here below you will find attached a few input examples, assuming “add” as the Alfred keyword to recall the script:
• add buy milk (chocolate one) @ 28/7/12 6:00pm # Todo
• add buy Alfred license (PowerPack) tomorrow 9:30 # Todo
• add buy MacBook Pro Retina (if I could…) # Me
• add remember to call mom today
As you can see you have always to insert the main body of tasks but you are free to add all others parameters or leave your todo simple. Notes and dueDate are optional as the ListName, which, in case it’s missing, will be automatic replaced by your default list in Reminders (simply the first entry of your list). The alertHour will be setted only if there is a specified dueDate.
More info about the Reminders extension syntax can be found on the attached text file.
