    How does Flashlight work if OSX doesn't support Spotlight plugins?
    Does it hijack some config file and route what you're typing through an intermediate program or something?
    Nate Parrott
    @nate-parrott
    @lcalcote sorry for the delay! probably won't work on Mavericks support, since the internal workings of Spotlight on Mavericks are probably pretty different.
    @monokrome it injects its own code into the Spotlight frontend — you can read more here: https://github.com/nate-parrott/Flashlight/wiki/How-Flashlight-Works-Internally

    would something like hotkeys be out of scope for this, or on its roadmap?

    do i do something wrong?
    thanks in advance for your help and sorry if it's a stupid question

    @rajington hotkeys to do what?
    @RottenKid not sure — does the Messages app open when you try to send?
    RottenKid
    @RottenKid
    @nate-parrott no :((
    I run 10.10.3

    @nate-parrott i was trying to evaluate whether this would ever try to be an open source replacement for quicksilver/alfred in terms of plugins that can complete "actions" with hotkeys. it could start as something as simple as a hotkey that autocompletes "send an email" or "create an event"

    i like spotlight as the primary interface but capabilities like a "clipboard manager" plugin add a lot of complication and might defeat the purposes of using a simple first-party interface to begin with

    I've got an idea for a plugin but lack the nessaccary knowhow to make it. Is it OK to make a suggestion?
    Nate Parrott
    @nate-parrott
    @valguss sure, feel free.
    there's also a board for requesting plugin ideas here: http://ideaboardapp.appspot.com/flashlight-plugin-ideas
    Tom Scott-Malden
    @valguss
    Thanks nate-parrot, will post up on the ideas board

    hi! I'm using the FlashlightTool, which is great. but how do I debug my python file? or at least output a warning or something I can trace? I have the "Errors and Warnings" window open, and I've tried print, the warning import, and the raise exception command but nothing shows up in the window.
    John-Philip Johansson
    @seriema
    Seems like I had some weird issue because of an import inside a function (duh, but it didn't say anything). so now warning works now

    @seriema
    wth. I forked and cloned, so I can contribute my plugin. but when I create a new branch I get a whole lot of "changes" in git. some line ending or encoding thing?
    John-Philip Johansson
    @seriema
    @nate-parrott I submitted a PR for the line endings. nate-parrott/Flashlight#492
    btw, I found import logging quite useful. seems there are several ways to output things in Python so a mention of this specific module would help a few people I think

    Just installed the flashlight, and really enjoy the convenience it brings to me!
    Currently using evernote plugin, but wondering how I could use keyboard to further select and browse the searched results?
    Or is this kind of secondary browse and search ever supported in spotlight?

    Just in case anyone else was wondering.

    Morning all. My Flashlight seems to be broken since I have installed Yosemite 10.10.4. Anyone else experience this problem?
    Johan Beisser

    hey guys, so I just installed Flashlight, but Spotlight seems to just ignore it. I'm on 10.10.4
    cdmn
    @cdmn
    nothing happens on 10.10.4
    Ryan Draga
    @TuxOtaku
    @cdmn yeah I'm seeing the same issue. I'm assuming the update breaks Flashlight.
    Mohit Gupta
    @guptamo
    @TuxOtaku @cdmn I just downloaded flashlight and can confirm that it's broken on 10.10.4

    @bgrrtt
    After reading through github: 10.10.4 is broken. I think @nate-parrott has a sweet internship this summer - he's probably working on it when he can...or just waiting for 11.10. But, I'm not him...obviously... Hopefully he integrates this tech right into 10.11!

    @nntoan
    Hey guys, I'm wondering when Flashlight able to install with brew.sh
    Ryan Draga
    @TuxOtaku
    @nntoan shouldn't take much to throw together a brew formula for it
    maybe once the 10.10.4 stuff is fixed, I'll work on a formula myself.

    Is this room still active? Does flashlight work on 10.10.5?
