Alfred 3 Workflow for Pokemon TCG


As a big fan of productivity tools, Alfred is a huge favorite of mine. One weekend I figured I should learn how to build my own workflows and I started by building a workflow to search for Pokemon TCG card information.

User of the workflow can search by a phrase and the software displays card name, set name & number as well as the basic information about the card. Clicking an item directs to a card specific page on your browser.

Pkmncards Alfred Workflow is built as a script filter using Python (with BeautifulSoup) using the search function of pkmncards.


web app, programming

Proxymon is a web app that converts Pokemon TCG Online deck lists into printable proxies for quick play testing and iterating before buying the cards.

Proxymon is built with Python/Flask and it uses PokemonTCG.io API for the cards.

  • Meetup Turku

    web app, programming

    As the amount of tech meetups in Turku exploded in 2016, I decided to build a site that would show the next event for each meetup.

    Meetup Turku uses Facebook, Meetup.com and Meetabit APIs to fetch the event data and displays them on the website that runs on Python/Flask.

    The site is still in early beta and there will be a lot of improvements for the functionality, stability and UI.
