Soulver comes with a number of options for using the Soulver engine outside of Soulver itself.
The Soulver Command Line Interface (or CLI) can be installed by going
Soulver > Install Extras > Command Line Interface
A 'soulver' alias will be created in
/usr/local/bin/ to a command-line tool inside Soulver's bundle. This will allow you to use the
soulver command from Terminal. All Soulver's features are present, including variables, currency conversions & date & time calculations:
$ soulver June 20 + 3 weeks11 July
You can also pipe a list of lines to Soulver and each line will be evaluated. These lines may contain variables.
Soulver comes with a workflow for Alfred that lets you perform calculations using Soulver.
To install the Alfred workflow go
Soulver > Install Extras > Alfred Workflow.
Download Soulver's automator action from here.
You can use the Automator action for performing calculations as part of an Automator workflow. Once installed, you can find it inside Automator, under
Calculate with Soulver. The action takes any text as input, evaluates it, and returns the result as text.
