[Action Request] Live Search for StackExchange Sites?

Post by bseymore » Sun Jun 15, 2014 7:05 pm

This is more an idea for someone (with more advanced skills than I have) looking to build an action...

I've been trying out LaunchBar as an alternative to Alfred for the past couple days. One workflow I'm missing from Alfred is the ExpressionEngine StackExchange Alfred Workflow which gives live search results for one of the many StackExchange sites. Like most SE sites, this particular one is fairly niche but I have to assume under-the-hood most SE are all pretty much the same so a live search LaunchBar action for one site could be easily forked for another.

Here's a link to the Github repo for the EESE Alfred Workflow. No idea how easy it would be to port to LaunchBar.

Tried downloading the zip but only got the following actions:
eese.lbaction
douban music.lbaction
douban movie.lbaction
douban book.lbaction
The pertinent one for this is missing from the zip. Any ideas?
