Quick development update… AppleScript extensions are now working wonderfully for the next release. The advantage of using AppleScript directly rather than through the shell integration is that you don’t get any character escaping problems. This means that the full plug-in syntax works great for scripts like the Things.app one above.
It also makes it significantly easier to add AppleScript extensions directly to Alfred without needing to fiddle with bash / shell.
The ‘background’ option allows scripts to be run inline (blocking Alfred but allowing AppleScript dialogs) or background using osascript :)
on alfred_script(q)
  tell application "Things"
    parse quicksilver input q
  end tell
end alfred_script
