You can do an html table?!

(I really need to look through the documentation…)

Well, you can in JavaScript. Not sure about Scriptable?

But if you build an html table and pass it to quicklook? That’s where I’d start, but then again html is my goto when bash scripting fails me, so … bias? :joy::rofl:

You can load raw HTML in a web view.


WebView.loadHTML("<strong>foo</strong> bar");

This can be presented on a Scriptable panel when called via Siri or full screen when not.

Great, thanks. Looks like I have some more work to do then. Massive inline styles and scripts coming up…

let headContent = `
  <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0">

let bodyContent = `

let myHTML = `
