Workflow Directory

Welcome to the Editorial workflow directory! This is the place to explore what others have created with Editorial. You can share your own workflows directly from the app.

If you view this page on your iOS device (with Editorial installed), you can download the linked workflows directly, by tapping on the Install Workflow button on the preview pages.

You can search for publicly shared workflows by their title or description.

Visual Find & Replace

This workflow uses the UI module to allow you to do a find & replace throughout your selected text or the entire document if no text is selected. The UI was designed to work on both the iPhone and the iPad. Options include: * Text or Regular Expression * Case-sensitive searches * Preview panel to make sure you're replacing what you want to replace (especially helpful for regex). This was adapted from the built-in Diff with Clipboard workflow.

Editorial Backup

Saves or restores a backup of all Editorial workflows, snippets, bookmarks, and local documents as a zip file in Dropbox (this requires the Dropbox account to be linked). Please note: If you want to restore a backup on a different device, you first have to download the backup file (just tap on it in the document list). This is required because Editorial doesn't sync zip files by default. Restoring a backup will *overwrite* all existing workflows, snippets, and bookmarks, so it's possible that you'll lose data this way. The best way to avoid any data loss is to create a backup before restoring anything.

Get App Price

Queries the iTunes Store API to search for an app's name, returns formatted name and price (in USD) in a popover. The workflow can optionally create an affiliate link if affiliate information is provided in two variables at the top. More information on affiliate links and iTunes Search API: http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/ http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/resources/documentation/itunes-store-web-service-search-api.html#searching

Preserve Line Breaks

Preserve Line Breaks was inspired by Brett Terpstra's Mac Service of the same name. To preserve a line break in iOS, markdown syntax requires that you type three spaces. But in iOS, typing two spaces generates a period, which drives me nuts. This workflow takes the text of a document, adds three spaces to the end of each line as required by Markdown, and the replaces the original text with the proper Markdown syntax.

This workflow uses the Markdown link syntax to let jump between files or create files in editorial. The idea is that you can navigate to the files refrenced in a document more easily and (optionally) can create folders and files be simply referencing them in the document you are currently writing. To use the workflow place your cursor within the bounds of Markdown link with a relative file path and run the workflow. It will then open the referenced file for you. Any link with a specific protocol like http: or file: will be ignored by the workflow. The workflow also does deliberately ignore file extensions so that you can write Markdown files that have working links in their rendered html files. Any link will be interpreted as a link to a Markdown file with the same name. It can handle folders and the command "../" in its file path. If either the referenced folder or file do not exist it will ask you if you want it to create them for you. Newly created files will be empty apart from a link to the file they were created from. Examples: ======= * The link [blah](file_a.md) will open the file `file_a.md` in the folder of this document. * The link [](file_b..html) will open the file `file_b.md` in the folder of this document. * The link [)](notes/june/file_c.txt) will open the file `file_c.md` in the sub folder `notes/june/` of this document. * The link [](../file_d) will open the file `file_d.md` in the folder one folder above the folder of this file. If you are in `Documents` this will raise an alert. * The link [](../../costs/file_e) will open the file `file_e.md` in the folder `costs`which does lie two folder above the folder of this file. If you are not at least two levels below `Documents` this will raise an alert.
