Search Template Collection System

Post by beerich » Tue Jul 10, 2007 1:31 pm

Hi folks.

Just wondering if there is any sense in creating a web service that could collect all these urls. That way we can periodically download a single file with all the urls. Or it can be mailed out to a mailing list every month or so.

Problem is, I don't see a way of importing into Launchbar. I can create the web interface/collection system, that isn't the issue. Importing into Launchbar might be the restriction.

Any ideas? Launchbar people, you have some input on this?

I"m certainly an advocate of something like that; I'd love to see the collective wisdom of these search templates available to everyone with periodic updates, which didn't trample my own search templates. I've mentioned that as a feature request in the past, and at least now we have different collections for the built-in versus personal templates.

Perhaps this could be handled as a new collection of community search templates in the LaunchBar configuration?

I'd also like some way to de-duplicate search templates. As I collect more, there's a greater chance that mine could conflict with the built-in ones and any potentially-community-supplied templates in the future.
