Send To Omnifocus from Google Reader Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I just made a simple solution for adding a Send To Omnifocus link to Google Reader that leverages the URIHandler:

http://gokubi.com/archives/send-to-o...-google-reader

Feel free to use it if you want.
 
Wow! That is just amazingly super wonderful! Great work!
 
Thanks for the awesome integration Nik!
 
I set up my own version of this with some minor improvements. (Inspired by Instapaper's Send To) Specifically:

EASY! No need to install my URI handler script. Provided you're using 1.8 sneakypeeks or the iPhone, it just works like magic.

PRETTY! There's an OmniFocus icon on it! And a favicon!

INFORMATIONAL! It updates its text to let you know that it's working.

CLEAN! It closes itself when it's done. (Well, unless you go to the page directly)

FAULT TOLERANT! If you haven't sent a "name" for the item, it lets you know.

To set it up, use the following as your Send To URL in Google Reader:

Code:
http://omnifocus.nik.me?name=${title}&note=From+${source}%3A+${short-url}
The icon is at http://omnifocus.nik.me/OmniFocus-16.png

Y'all can feel free to use my URL. I've got plenty of bandwidth for these teeny tiny pages. :)

To Do: Figure out how to make the page work entirely in Javascript. There's really no reason for PHP to be necessary. (Except that we don't know JS, I imagine.)

Thanks gokubi, I added a line near the end of your php code to close the window :D

PHP Code:
echo "setTimeout('self.close();',50);"
 
For those with OCD, I have made an Omnifocus 16x16 icon for google reader with no white background. If you have a theme on Google Reader, it will make the Omnifocus Icon look better.

I am hosting it and using this URL:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/565411/Hoste...F.GR.16x16.png
You are welcome to steal it. I may move the location sometime in the future, so I would recommend hosting it yourself to be safe :).
 
Thanks iNik for this service! and fwdk^3 for the transparent icon. ;)
 
I must be doing something wrong. When I click on "Send to OF" in Google Reader, OF opens, but nothing gets added.
