I use Alfred as a launcher on my Mac.  I have been experimenting with creating custom hyperlinks to allow me to quickly open up a passage or search in Logos just using a couple of strokes on the keyboard.  For instance, I can press CMD+Space then type "l gen 1.1" and it will open up logos to Genesis 1.1.  What I would like to do is to be able to search a specific document via a hyperlink, but I cannot figure out how to do it.  In particular, I would like to search the Edinburgh Westminster Confession.  I cannot figure out a combination. Below are the hyperlinks I have set up in Alfred so far, in case they are helpful for anyone.

  • Pull up a passage in the ESV - logosres:esv;ref=BibleESV.{query}
  • Search for keywords in the bible - logos4:Search;kind=Bible;q={query}  -Also, this only allows for search of the most recent searched version.  Is there anyone to specify?
  • Search for keywords in my library - logos4:Search;kind=Basic;q={query} -Again this default to whatever I was searching last "Everything", "All Open Resources", etc.  I would love to specify

Hello there. I am very interested in being able to do all the things you have mentioned. I was wondering if you could help me get the ball rolling and then maybe we can help eachother as we come up with other ideas. I am just not sure where to copy and paste your current commands. Can you help me? thank you!!

Hi,

Im also using Alfred, but not with Logos. Did you (or anyone else) figure this out? Also, im wondering how you made your passage-workflow. How do you send the logosres: command to Logos?

This is an old thread, and I presume you are using Logos 8?

If you can create a hyperlink, then you should use the ref.ly format as that is designed for use in programs external to Logos.

I also know this is an old thread, but I've make a Alfred Workflow for Logos available here: https://github.com/vmitchell85/logos-alfred-workflow

Feel free to request changes, updates, etc

Thanks for this... this is a great help! I copied and changed one to work with the NKJV. 

What would be great would be to be able to launch a Bible search from Alfred.

Something like "LS" followed by a search term or phrase. Would that be possible?

Thanks again for making this available!

I've updated the workflow to include NKJV and added library, bible, and media searches:

This is a really nice workflow. Very easy to add resources (although it would be absolutely awesome if it was possible to open resources/commentaries/etc as well — not just search for them).

It doesnt bring Logos to focus when the application is on another space, though. I don't know if thats a bug for you guys as well? 

Anyway, in my own workflow I use applescript:system events to navigate to logos using the Dock, with keystrokes. Its not pretty, and a little slow. But it works. Do you have a better solution to this, Vince?

And one humble question/request: Is it possible to add a query for searching lemmas in lexicons or bible-word-study?

This is AMAZING!! thank you so much, Vince. I've been waiting for someone tech-savvy and skilled enough to do what you've done for about 2 years. This is going to be a game-changer for me. 

One question: the Bible shortcut doesn't seem to work properly for books of the Bible with numerals in the prefix... like 1 Corinthians 13:4 or 1 John 4:7. Or is it just me?

For instance, the command "Bible 2 Corinthians 10" doesn't do anything. However, "Bible 2 Corinthians" does bring up 2 Corinthians, I'm just unable to specify chapter and verse for Bible books prefixed with numbers.

Try leaving out the space between numeral and letters: 3john5 instead of 3 John 5

that's done the trick! Thank you so much fellow Alfred/Logos user!

I've updated the workflow to fix the issue with opening "2 Corinthians 4:3" and similar passages.

I've also added the feature requests from Dan to the issues list: https://github.com/vmitchell85/logos-alfred-workflow/issues

I'll see if I can get those working as well as I have time.

Happy to see people getting good use out of it, if you'd like to support development you can buy me a coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/kgn867ldz

Thanks,

 - Vince

I've added a search feature to open specific resources... let me know if you have any issues with it, I haven't confirmed it will work for others also.
