I want to call Scriptable script from another one, passing along some parameters. So I build an URL like this one
The parameter foo is an URI encoded array with one simple object. Now, in
Test, I want to work with this parameter. Testing with the URL above in Safari, I get error messages when I use the property
queryyParameters of the
args object and then JSON parsing the decoded string (unexpected identifier “object”)
What’s the right way to do this?
Found the answer: one has to use
JSON.parse(args.queryParameters.foo). The queruParameters are an object, one has to access the parameters separately by using their names as properties of
Have you tried using importModule to import the other script? That would bypass the need to jump between scripts.
Thanks for the suggestion. What I was trying to do was open an HTML document from a widget. That seems not to be possible at the moment, though - at least not, if the HTML is build on the fly by another script.
Less contrived: display a widget with several lines in it. If the user clicks on one of them, a detailed view is opened. Since clicks in widgets have to target an URL, I thought to use a scriptable:/// one that would then build the HTML and display it in a web view. Which seems not to be possible.
