  2. You can. I don’t see anything in Bunch that can’t be accomplished in Alfred. But yes, you are correct:
  3. Yup, you're right. I was wrong. Sorry, That notwithstanding, as you say, the script won't run without at least one argument. I don't know. What are you trying to do?
  4. Thanks for the reply! I guess the first step would be to edit the workflow so that it doesn't need the query? Currently it looks like it's set so the argument is optional which I took to mean that it doesn't need a query? See attached screenshot. Or is it in the Run Script action?
  5. The workflow is set up so that you must enter a query before it will run the script. And the script itself won't work without any input (it requires at least one argument). If you're trying to figure out how a workflow works, you can't just look at the workflow in Alfred Preferences or the source code. You need to consider both.
  6. The Launch App's Files (LAF) is definitely powerful! With LAF I don't think you can launch url's with shell scripts, while also launching files, hiding others. That said these are all things that are doable with Alfred, but I think the simple configuration required to do those things is what makes Bunch (a Free App) very intriguing. Example: If I wanted to make a Bunch that opens the Alfred Forum to this link while copying my GitHub url for this project to the clipboard and then also opening my slack app, closing my mail app and opening drafts, ALL WHILE Hiding all the other apps in my environment. That looks like this. @@ * set the clipboard to "https://github.com/kjaymiller/Bunch_Alfred" https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/12731-quick-launch-for-brett-terpstras-bunch-app/?tab=comments#comment-66697 !Mail Slack Drafts IMHO, that is easier to update and maintain than adding many blocks into an Alfred workflow. That said I Love Alfred and think that the two can coexist in my workflow.
  7. I've been watching Brett's posts on this -- what advantage does this hold over using a Launch Apps/Files object in an Alfred workflow?
  8. Hello! Do you think it would be possible to add reccuring tasks support? I use them a lot and i would veery much appreciate it thanks in advance.
  9. This workflow takes advantage of Brett Terpstra's Bunch Application. Bunch is a workspace loader that you can use to quickly open/close applications, urls, documents, and more to come. This workflow utilizes Bunch's URL Scheme x-bunch:[BUNCH NAME]. And gives you all the bunches in your default bunches folder ("~/bunches") Directions: b - Top Level Bunch Selector b <bunch filename> - Runs the Selected Bunch b edit <bunch filename> - Opens the File in the Default Application b display <bunch filename> - Displays the contents of the Bunch in Large Text b refresh - Refreshes your Bunch List (It does this by opening the app so you will be in the Bunch app once the workflow completes.) The workflow can be found on my GitHub. - https://github.com/kjaymiller/Bunch_Alfred Below is an example of me loading iterm using Bunch (via Alfred).
  10. That is correct. I haven't made a release with the new feature yet. I'm still ironing out bugs and want to add another feature or two before the next release.
  11. Hi deanishe, Thank you for this workflow! The README on github (that's linked to from the extension) describes the new quickadd feature, but it looks like the latest .alfredworkflow release available on github predates those additions. Is there a release with the quickadd feature available? Thanks again!
  12. Still, it is possible (even if a terrible idea) with sudo --stdin /Applications/Marta.app/Contents/MacOS/Marta <<< PASSWORD_HERE.
  13. Brilliant, the Applescript way is just what I needed, thanks! Case closed
  14. You don't because that would be very bad from a security perspective. Either you use AppleScript: do shell script "/Applications/Marta.app/Contents/MacOS/Marta" with administrator privileges Or you edit your sudoers configuration, so you don't need to enter your password to use sudo. The former is a better idea, security-wise.
  15. Thanks! Just one thing - how do I pass my root (admin) password so I don’t have to enter it manually upon invoking the command? TY EDIT: I’m just using the Terminal command action to do this, with a simple "sudo -b /Applications/Marta.app/Contents/MacOS/Marta"
  16. Got it. I really have to level up my Python skills so I can generate proper JSON. Right now my script filters are all limited to Bash/XML which does not support the match property.
  17. Last week
  18. What you’re looking for is the match property of the Script Filter JSON format. Populate it with every word you want your search to match.
  19. Hello @braveheart1980, There are other options to try in the troubleshooting steps. Have you gone through the list?
  20. I find that weird, and that seems like a bad decision. It also seems unlikely that option will ever be added to Alfred. Very few people would want it, and it gives users an easy way to shoot themselves in the foot. You don’t need a terminal, you just need a Run Script Action.
  21. The above thread seems to indicate that an empty {query} will always be sent to the external script. However I'm trying to use this timer script https://github.com/dbader/alfred-countdown-timer/blob/master/Timer/timer.py and I think the code says that if I pass in an empty query it should display a notification telling me how to use this script. However in testing I found that main() doesn't even run when the query is empty. Am I misunderstanding something either about this script or how alfred works? Thanks!
  22. I was able to get this working using the Alfred keystroke function. 🤦‍♂️ I was not able to make it work at first, but realized I needed to add the keystroke output to my initial hotkey action with a delay. (In case anyone ever has as similar confusion.) Best tool ever!! 🖤
  23. @OmarKN If Alfred won't let you set that particular combo, it's likely already used by another app on your Mac, which is intercepting it before Alfred is even aware you've pressed that combination. On a fairly vanilla macOS, the Shift + Ctrl + numbers combination is usually free so take a look at what installed apps you might have installed that use these combos. Cheers, Vero
