So, I wrote an earlier post about how I use Bear as an intermediary between Workflow and Drafts 5 in order to post to WordPress.
I did this because I couldn’t find any action in Workflow that allowed me to access text from Drafts 5 — the action exists for Drafts 4, but not Drafts 5.
So I moved text from Drafts into Bear, then called Workflow to get the text and post to my blog.
What I seem to have completely overlooked is that I can call Workflow directly from Drafts 5 and pass it the text of a note as input. No need for all the shenanigans I went through in my last post. Here are the steps you need to do:
- Install the post to WordPress workflow
- Create a custom action on Drafts 5 that calls that workflow and pass it the text of the Draft
That’s it. As I learn more about both Drafts 5 and Workflow, I’ll probably refine my use of the apps. If I find anything interesting I’ll post here.
