make OF action out of current emacs buffer Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
OK, Thanks to Curt and some of the code on this board, I hacked together a quick emacs script to note the current emacs buffer and make a new action. Comments welcome. No doubt my elisp is horrible...

(defun sendOmni () 
  (let ((fname (buffer-file-name (current-buffer))))
	(do-applescript (concat "tell front document of application \"OmniFocus\" 
                set aTask to (make new inbox task with properties {name:\"From Emacs " 
				(buffer-name (current-buffer)) "\", note:\"file:///" fname "  \" })
                    tell note of aTask
		      make new file attachment with properties {file name:\"" fname "\"}
	            end tell
             end tell"))
;; I use F3 for omnifocus clipping...
(global-set-key [f3] 'sendOmni)
Nice work. Fun to see some eLisp on the forum!

Thanks Curt. Though I have to say the experience of mashing together these two languages, perverse in such diametrically opposite ways, has been exhausting!
I found your example a really useful jumping off point. I wanted to do something a bit different, which was be able to select a region in emacs and have it pop up in the OmniFocus Quick Entry window to add a new task. More details about why I wanted to do that can be found here:

Here's the code:
(defun omniQuickEntry (beg end)
  (interactive "r")
  (do-applescript (concat
		   "tell front document of application \"OmniFocus\"
			tell quick entry
			    make new inbox task with properties {name:\""
		   	        (buffer-substring beg end) "\"}
			    select {inbox task 1}
			end tell
		    end tell")

(global-set-key "\C-c\C-o" 'omniQuickEntry)
