I’ve just started trying to Beemind my own OmniFocus usage and I think I’ve got a good basic approach sorted out:
- Use Hazel to trigger sending datapoints when OmniFocus syncs.
- Use Node and the
osa2module to wrap JXA calls with a more general programming environment.
So far, the only thing I’ve got automated is my inbox count, but I also intend to add some support to beemind-arbitrary-things (i.e. did I check off a task containing the words “gratitude journal”). You can see the work-in-progress at
This is the Hazel rule I’m using to trigger the script:
That rule runs in the folder
~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus3/Data/Library/Application Support. Note that I am using the OmniFocus 3 beta, so YMMV if you are using OmniFocus 2. Either way, you’ll need the Pro version for AppleScript support.
