Hi,

is there an API for spotlight in OS X Yosemite? I think there is no API, right? Pretty unfortunate. That would be a great feature for developers. Evernote or other applications could use it so that we can search notes or whatever. Maybe in the future?

I thought a more comprehensive API would be great so that applications like evernote can support it (to search notes with a preview from spotlight) or skype could hook into the calling function for contacts. Personally, I would be interested in site-specific web searches (e.g. my university library) or getting results from a sqlite database from a search term.
