Mail rule to open url and save content of that webpage as pdf in local folder
I am trying to create a workflow that includes rules in OSX mail with applescript. Mission is to be able to save webpages from my iPhone on my mac as pdf, possibly even tagged for future searches.
Why I want this: I often find content on the web when I am on my iPhone that I would like to archive for future reference (save the page as pdf on my mac and that way make it searchable with spotlight). I am a heavy information user and have tried many methods, but all seem to break because I never have time to follow up my own reminders and go through email, open, save as pdf and tag.
I am therefore looking for a way that lets me only forward the actual webpage from my iphone to mail, tag it with something ("@") that wakes the rule. I let applescript to take care of the rest. (Bonus if its possible to also tag document/filename with words from email content field.)
Unfortunately I am not that in to applescript as I should. Have found this on the web, but thats just half the part (found on http://is.gd/wWrsz2).
And I dont know if what I want is even possible to accomplish?
This is what my code looks like right now:
using terms from application "Mail" on perform mail action with messages theMessages for rule Savepdf tell application "Mail" repeat with theMessage in theMessages set theText to paragraph 1 of (content of theMessage) set the clipboard to theText end repeat end tell open location theText end perform mail action with messages end using terms from
