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.

Start Today’s Work Notes

I keep my notes in one large Markdown file. I have this hooked up to a Workflow that allows me to dictate the beginning of my notes and tosses them at the top of the document.

NET Bible Blockquote

Insert Bible Verse (NET) as Markdown by @markjhulme ::Version 1.0.1:: This workflow allows a selected Bible reference to be looked up in the New English Translation (NET) and returned as a markdown block quote beneath the reference.

Line width to 80 characters

If you like your text only 80 characters wide per line, run this workflow! It uses python to grab the text you’ve written (no need to select it or copy to clipboard) and the wrap function to limit the line width to 80 characters. There’s an extra step built in to preserve blank lines. The function finishes by selecting all text and replacing it with the newly limited text.

Working Copy

Workflow for transferring files from Working Copy to Editorial and back again. When called with input, it will pick the filename from the first line and write the other lines into this file, which lets Working Copy create a new file with predefined content. The filename contains a unique identifier for remembering where it belongs. To avoid overwriting files in Editorial by mistake, the previous contents of files are put in WorkingCopy.bak When this workflow is called without any input the contents of the current file is written back to Working Copy. Change askcommit variable to 0 if you just want to save and not be asked to commit. To install a new version of this workflow delete or rename this one and perform Edit in Editorial from Working Copy.
