Aug 22, 2018 @ 10:49:53

On the Laravel News site there's a new post sharing a workflow developed by Bill Clark that makes searching the PHP documentation with the Alfred tool easier.

PHP Docs workflow for Alfred by Bill Clark is a workflow for searching the PHP documentation from Alfred directly. The PHP Docs workflow code builds on Till Krüss’ Laravel Docs Workflow for Alfred that we recently covered.

[...] You can search the PHP documentation by opening up Alfred and prefixing your search with “php” and then the search term.

They give an example of how to search the documentation and a screenshot of the resulting list. You can find out more and get this Alfred workflow for yourself over on the GitHub repository for the project.

The post includes the list of commands that the workflow includes allowing you to perform operations like opening the server's page in a browser, rebooting a system and restarting the web server on a specific machine.

Aug 19, 2011 @ 11:07:31

On NetTuts.com today there's a new screencast posted showing you how to create an Alfred extension with PHP (OS X only, obviously).

Whether it's maps, Amazon, eBay, Wikipedia, you can feed your web addiction quicker than ever before".

The tutorial walks you through the process of creating the extension (requires v0.99). His example extension is a shell script that pulls contents from Lipsum.com and puts it on your clipboard. He uses the PHP Simple HTML Dom Parser library to extract the contents of the page.

If you're just looking for the source, you can download the extension here. For more information on creating extensions in Alfred, look at this new post on their blog.
