Geek Tool and OF export Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Dear All,
I'm a geektool and OF fan, but an applescript novice. Can someone point to an applescript that pulls out the next actions from a OF document? I can then put them to a text file and display on the desktop via GeekTool.

Any help would be appreciated.
You may be able to use or modify this.

Or perhaps this, which gives a cleaner listing, includes due dates and postpended names of containing projects, and creates a file on the user desktop.

Is there a way to only grab active actions? That script grabs actions from projects that are on hold.
You can test a Section to see whether its Status property has the value Active.

Thank you for the script. I modified it and wrote three versions of it.
I just wanted to share them with other OmniFocus users. :)

Forgive me I have never used apple scripts before, do I just run them or do I need to do something from within the application?

Thanks in advance
OK, I have the "ListNext" script working, it generates a text file with my next options, but how do I make it work with GeekTool? I have selected file and shell with that script and it doenst display anything... im a bit lost, any help?
Does it work to put this as the command in your GeekTool settings?
osascript ~/PathToYourScript/YourScriptName.scpt
