To-Do

  • Find more elegant solution to the Automator Launcher spinning gear icon hack. I tried this as both an Automator workflow and an application, both spawn the spinning gear. If everyone had Bartender, the spinning gear could be hidden by Bartender and there would be no need for the two workflows. Suggestions welcome!
  • Update Cheaters git repo from origin/upstream master.
  • Show progress indicator when cloning/updating.
  • DONE: Implement update logic. I should have put the git repo in ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Workflow Data/$bundle_id. As it is now, the Cheaters git repo is wiped out when you install a new version of the workflow.
  • DONE: Make Alleyoop compatible.

What's the full error? Can you check your console.app log? Open /Applications/Utilities/Console.app then run the workflow and look in system.log for "Alfred Workflow" errors.

Wait, did you move the cheaters directory manually? I don't see the .git folder in your cheaters folder.

 

See mine:

Have you made any edits to index.html? If so, copy it somewhere safe, then delete the cheaters dir, and re-run the workflow, then copy your edited index.html back, and run git commit -m 'my changes' on the terminal. Only if you changed index.html, otherwise just delete and re-run the workflow.

I wonder if it's a bash version issue? Could you run 

 

 

 

type -a bash

which bash

bash --version
 

In your Terminal?

 

thanks

Hi stouty !

 

Here is what tells me the console log

14/04/13 23:37:07,813 Alfred Workflow[1006]: ERROR: /Users/jeromepasquier/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.9E20A77E-5513-4FC2-9C7D-C89152F3D59B/Cheaters.workflow NOT found, cannot continue
 

 

When I download the zip from github, there is no .git folder. Do I have to clone it ?

 

 

I typed the 3 lines in the terminal and this is what it says :

$ type -a bash
bash is /bin/bash
$ which bash
/bin/bash
$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 3.2.48(1)-release (x86_64-apple-darwin12)

Hmmm...

15/04/13 00:53:32,506 Alfred Workflow[1365]: ERROR: NOT a git repo

 

I had to clone it to get the .git.

Then I replaced the cheater folder with the new one from the clone.

 

But then a pop up appeared asking me to do override something about LOCAL files. I said yes. Then a notification appeared :

HEAD is now at 03322a4 add siri to demo ...

 

And after calling the workflow, I have this error:

ERROR the workflow file does not exist.

/Users/foobar/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Alfred.alfre...

 

 

Very strange =/

Delete the /Users/jeromepasquier/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Workflow Data/com.stouty.cheaters/cheaters directory, then re-run. It should do the clone for you.

I'm having the same exact errors as BabyAzerty, every error he/she has encountered has been the same for me. I don't know why, but I just tried your latest version from git hub as of this post time... Thanks anyhow! Hopefully it works for some people.

I think your git command is not in the path inherited by the Alfred process

 

Can you type in a Terminal and post the results

echo $PATH
which git
type -P git
type -ap git

Then in Alfred create a new blank workflow, say hotkey to script, oh hold on ... here, try this:

 

getGitPath.alfredworkflow

 

See what the output is (it's posted as a large type notification and copied to the clipboard for you to paste in here)

 

For me:

 

 

$ echo $PATH
/Users/james/.rbenv/shims:/Users/james/.rbenv/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/share/npm/bin:/Users/james/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Users/james/Projects/Scripts:/Users/james/Scripts

$ which git
/usr/local/bin/git

$ type -P git
/usr/local/bin/git

$ type -ap git
/usr/local/bin/git
/usr/bin/git
/usr/local/bin/git

The from the workflow:

 

 

PATH = /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
which git = [/usr/bin/git]

So the Cheaters workflow works for me as I have two gits installed.

 

Two options:

 

1. I add a load of paths to the Info.plist and export them. e.g. 

 

 

export PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/share/npm/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
 
resulting from getGitPath.alfredworkflow in:

 

PATH = /usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/share/npm/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
which git = [/usr/local/bin/git]
2. I spend a little time finding the right git in my workflow.
 
I'll opt for 2 and submit an update, but I'd like to see your output if possible to make sure I am thinking along the right lines.
 
thanks
James
