I turned @rmlewisuk's Toot Bookmarklet into a Workflow Action Extension so I can use it in other apps on iOS.


Robb’s Bookmarklet:

If you want to use the Workflow, replace “” in the Text step with the name of your Mastodon Instance.

@dan I just realised I should have called it "tootmarklet" and I'm so angry right now.

Good job on this (I assume, I don't workflow 🤷🏼‍♂️)

@rmlewisuk Ha, quick rename the page on Github and we’ll pretend it was always called that.

@dan I'm not as Workflow-fluent as I'd like to be. Is there a way to capture the Mastodon authentication so I don't have to log in every time I run this workflow?

@CraigCottingham You should only have to log in once. it stays logged in for me.

If it’s giving you the login prompt every time, maybe try logging in through a regular Safari window.

If that still doesn’t save it, the only other thing I’ve done is I've added my mastodon instance website to my homescreen from Safari, which definitly saves my login credentials.

@dan Odd. I had to log in again the second time I ran the workflow, but not the third. I'm going to assume it's working correctly now. Thanks for this!

@dan @rmlewisuk I published a workflow three days ago that does the same thing, but differently – I use an import question to ask users about their instance. (And I did not know that “Get Name” gets the title of a website. You never stop learning :-)

@yatil @rmlewisuk Yours has fewer steps too, so I think you win. I just hit my automation tools with a hammer until they do the thing I want.
