    Problem with localization of date snippets

    @jlfenaux @gul-iMac Alfred passes the date handling to macOS, and has no knowledge of the localised name for days. Could you please let me know which version of macOS you're using? This appears to be a bug in Mojave, as I can see the same issue (non-localised days) on our Mojave Mac but the days are localised as expected on an older OS. This also explains why you're seeing the same issue in DevonThink and TextExpander. Cheers, Vero

    Remix Themes

    Some simple themes I made DOWNLOAD
  7. @Jasondm007 Glad you're finding it useful! I chose to implement your first suggestion. In case you didn't know, the standard search already shows notes with matching folder names.

    That really shouldn't happen. I believe Alfred itself triggers the paste event in exactly the same way as the Key Combo does.

    System/Library/CoreServices

    Don't know. Possibly by adding "alfred:ignore" to the apps' Spotlight comments, if that's possible to do with system files. Why do you want to do that? Those applications will stop showing up once you've trained Alfred a bit.
  10. That's fine too. Python is easy to read. And you have awesome comments. 🙂

    System/Library/CoreServices

    @deanishe Thank you for you reply. How can I exclude System CoreServices? How can I prevent Alftred to search through application packages?
  12. In fact I think what would be awesome is to use my Web Searches workflow to let users customize custom searches driven by some engine. Either on default result or on modifiers. Through the settings, like what Search has with Installed Searches ... to list all current filters. On return of any of the results let user pick through return, alt, opt, cmd, fn, shift and then on return of those show up Web Searches prompt of all the different searches to map to. With ability to add a custom search if none of the searches you want satisfy you. (Of course user can also extend Web Searches database optionally too). That would be pretty cool I think and it's already written in Go. I might try to read through all of Searchio code and extract all the relevant parts I need to try make this work. If I will need to rewrite Searchio for this, so be it.
  13. By default you add a search engine that will as default result on activating suggestions run the query on the engine's website. Just like what Searchio does now. What makes Searchio unique is the suggestions. The version I am thinking of building looks and works exactly like Searchio does now but has ability to customize outputs of searches to custom URLs. Not sure how that would work Alfred wise but I believe it should be possible.
  14. At the cost of increased complexity and the fact that you would then have suggestions that may not actually lead to any search results. So no, it doesn't achieve everything Searchio does. You lose the guarantee that there are some search results for the workflow's suggestions.
  15. I do think that is a superior way than what Searchio provides currently. This way it is a lot more flexible and can achieve everything current Searchio achieves too.
  16. That might be the best idea. Decouple the suggestions from the searches, and then you can mix and match as you please. Currently, that simply is not a goal for Searchio.

    System/Library/CoreServices

    There are some very important applications in there, along with some very unimportant ones. I'm pretty sure Alfred hardcodes the important ones because in the typical case, people are going to expect things like Finder.app to be show up in Alfred, but not things like SystemUIServer.app or loginwindow.app.

    I got your point. I simply put Key Combo alongside Copy to Clipboard to give some illustration (misleading, though 😂). Without the Key Combo, the Copy to Clipboard alone still didn't work. Here is the updated workflow: https://github.com/cdpath/alfred_workflows/releases/tag/0.0.7
  19. It does. i.e. cmd + return on YouTube search filter to make a search for past month on YouTube. I see many more cases where I want to scope my search to a certain filter but reuse the suggestions powered by Searchio. Although Google Lucky search is most crucial of them all.
  20. I will try to rewrite Searchio myself with a different data model. I also wanted to include a small portion of Searchio code in my Web Searches workflow to use Google powered suggestions queries to search any website on the net. (MIT license allows me to do it if I mention where I got the code from). But rewriting Searchio should be a learning experience. Might do it in OCaml too as I've been learning it. Makes perfect sense. Thank you for your help and time.

    The Key Combo should come after the Copy to Clipboard, not be alongside it. The way you have them set up, Alfred will run them simultaneously, and it's just luck that the clipboard is set before the key combo is triggered.
  22. No, not really. What you're asking would be a lot of work because the basic data model of the workflow is "one engine per search". Changing that would require some fairly fundamental changes to the workflow, not just a few lines of Go. I'm not going to implement it because I have no use for the feature (I never, ever use "I'm feeling lucky" and I don't think it applies to any other search engines). And I'm not going to help you do it because helping you with code, I am sorry to say, is almost never an enjoyable or rewarding experience for me.

    I did some experiment. Here is what I found: Problem 1 The regex Notes|Evernote|scapple actually works fine Problem 2 I found Regular Expression to exclude a list of words and figured out the following regex to mimic fallback else ^((?!(ulysses|Notes|Evernote|scapple)).)*$ So I got this: And something fancy happened. The second branch (Notes|Evernote|scapple) doesn't work anymore. It seems Copy to Clipboard failed to paste the incoming content. I have to use Key Combo to fix it. I highly doubt it has something to do with the performance of regex in else branch: ^((?!(ulysses|Notes|Evernote|scapple)).)*$ . If I replace it with ^((?!(ulysses)).)*$ , everything works fine.
  24. @deanishe Can you help with guiding me on how I can customize Searchio to do customized searches on modifier key presses? i.e. doing Google Lucky search on Google script filter with alt+return? I haven't touched Go in quite a bit of time and would literally do anything to get this feature working in Searchio.

    Why I need this? Sometimes I just found myself repeating copy/paste URL and title from Chrome to write some reference. Even worse, different apps accept different format (Yeah, I'm talking about you, Ulysses!). So here is my workflow: Usage Just type \\u in your favorite app. Problem 1. I tried and failed to use matches regex in Filter Utility, that's why I have to hard coded three (and maybe more in the future) filter. This is my failed attempt: Notes|Evernote|scapple 2. The else (marked in red in screenshot above) is not actually fallback, which may lead to some bug. # What I thought it would be if condition_a: ... elif condition_b: ... elif condition_c: ... # How it actually works if condition_a: ... if condition_b: ... if condition_c: ...
