Hello all,

I've created an Alfred workflow to integrate with Logos and I figured some of you may be interested in it.

The current version allows you to open a few bible versions to a specific passage and search your library.

You can grab the latest version here:

I'm also working on being able to search your library within Alfred. Here is a sneak peek:

Would love any feedback or suggestions.

Well I finished up that search feature last night, it's available here:

Eager to hear if it works as well for others as it does for me.

Thanks Vince for the flow.

Does it work with normal Alfred or premium?

So not sure how to download latest version, is it the green drop down list button and then press the zip?

Thanks for your input on this ahead of time.

You'll need the "powerpack" paid version.

Once you bring up the github page you can scroll down to the readme file that has an "Installation" section and click the link.

Thanks for this, Vince!

This is a big step forward from my own simple attempt to use URL lookup without any script to clean the Bible reference.

I'd like to see the addition of some Greek and Hebrew texts and using a Filter in Alfred workflows to search and list resources to open in Logos, optionally supplying a term to use Logos to search within the chosen resource. Someday I'll make an attempt to do this if someone like you doesn't beat me to it. :-)

Hi Vince, 

the workflow works pretty well, thank you for the sharing.

meanwhile, is it possible to add "copy/paste" function into the workflow, so that one may search a passage or ranges and at the same time the searched passage being copy into clipboard for paste into word document without leaving the workflow.

Thank you for the help.

Any way to get it to copy a verse to the clipboard? Maybe with the cmd modifier? I used to do this through youversion suggest for alfred, but I've had difficulty getting it to copy lately.

I do not think this is possible. Logos uses a sqlite database to keep track of resources, which is what I use for searching resources. I then use what is called "deep links" to get Logos to open Resources and Passages. Once i've handed the request off via a "deep link" I can no longer interact with it.

If Logos adds any AppleScript hooks then I would be able to do more, but at this time I'm not sure of a method to do any copy/paste.

Yeah, I suspected that may be the case.

My use of lopen doesn't seem to find or recognize many of my resources. Is this as intended?

Hmm... I know we may have difference resources... but can you provide a few that it doesn't work for? I can try to test locally and see if it works for me.

I don't actually know if everything is kept in the database I'm using for the connection, so it's possible Logos stores some data elsewhere.

Here are two grammar resources not recognized.

Unfortunately, I don't have either of those.

The database is located here:

/Users/[USER NAME]/Library/Application Support/Logos4/Data/[ONLY FOLDER THERE]/LibraryCatalog/catalog.db

I look only in the records table and in the following columns when attempting to open:

  • Title
  • UserTitle
  • UserAbbreviatedTitle
  • AbbreviatedTitle
  • ResourceId

If you wanted to search in that file and see if those resources are there you can use TablePlus which should show you all the data if you open the catalog.db file with it.

I would say you could send the database file to me, but I'm not sure there isn't sensitive information stored in other tables so I don't think that would be a good idea.
