IndieWeb wiki Workflow for Alfred

As someone who spends a lot of time in the IndieWeb community, I spend a lot of time opening up various pages that I know are there. At times it feels tedious to open a new tab and type out the full URL.

I'm not alone in this! Folks that hang out in the IndieWeb chat, often use the "what is x?" wiki lookup feature of our friendly IRC bot Loqi.

I'm a big fan of Alfred, the launcher and general magic quick bar for macOS, I thought I could save myself some time by making a Workflow to open those pages for me.

The Workflow itself does only one thing: When you open Alfred (⌘-spacebar), type "iw KEYWORD" and press Enter, it opens https://indieweb.org/KEYWORD in your browser.

You can grab a copy of the workflow here: indieweb.org-wiki-workflow.alfredworkflow

Thanks for these instructions! The steps worked fine for me (after some trouble getting back to aim.com after logging in w/ my AOL credentials).

For weird nostalgia’s sake, I also wanted to export my block list!

This turns out to be simpler than getting the whole buddy list.

First, visit http://www.aim.com/.settings

Then, run this in the console to output every AIM id in the block list:

for (var el of document.querySelectorAll('li[aimid]')){ console.log(el.getAttribute('aimid'));}

You should then be able to copy the list out of the console and paste it…somewhere. Maybe print it out and draw some skulls on it and slide it intoan old Trapper Keeper from middle school.
