    Run macOS Services

    Run macOS services from Alfred… on the current selection on the clipboard contents on files via a File Action Installation Download the latest version from GitHub and double-click to install. Usage Use keyword services to run a service on the current contents of the clipboard. Configure the included Hotkeys to run a service on the current selection or clipboard contents. Use the macOS Services File Action to run on selected files in Alfred. For more info, see the README on GitHub.

  2. Then don’t make a mess. There are twelve unnecessary posts—all yours—on the first page of this thread (and they are the reason there’s a second page). You post too much too often and it seems to be getting worse. You make new posts like other people make paragraphs. That’s annoying for other users because we get an absurd amount of avoidable pings and your question is all over the place. You’re making more work for us to help you, which is unreasonable and works against you. Pause before you submit a reply. Make sure everything is in there. If you need to add something

  3. Hi! I made up this new Alfred marketplace of workflows as a guy fancy of digital tools and productivity (and as Alfred Lover of course) Alfred workflows is a curated list with a selection of 100+ Workflows for everyone divided into 13 Categories (Design, Development, Productivity, Video and others...) and for different job titles (Developers, Project Managers, Designers…) The community of Alfred users and I will add more every week to help people and you be more productive. This is a version 1.0, not perfect. Hope you will enjoy it. What do y

    Goodreads Book Search

    Massive update today. Complete rewrite, basically. The workflow now uses OAuth, so you can access your own bookshelves and add/remove books. I've replaced custom URLs with custom scripts, so you can do just about anything with book data, not just open URLs. The workflow can now also fetch a book's full dataset, so there are a lot more data to play with (e.g. book description, which is available as plaintext, HTML or Markdown).

  6. You’re using incorrect Escaping options. Like I said earlier, don’t use {query}, use “with input as argv”. It’s much simpler and therefore much harder to screw up. Change it to "with input as argv" and use the following script: query="$1" cp -a "${HOME}/Dropbox (Personal)/Aaron Riddle Photography/Lightroom Settings/Catalog Templates/Catalog - Aaron Riddle Photography Template" "${HOME}/Desktop/Catalog - ${query}" mkdir -p "${HOME}/Desktop/${query}"/{Originals,Finals,Blog,Release}

  7. Yeah, I like HoudahSpot for a few things. I still use Spotlight for irregular searches, especially in source code, because Alfred deliberately ignores so much in the pursuit of speed. Also, saved searches/smart folders are awesome. My Smart Folders workflow was one of the first I wrote, and one that I still use the most.

  10. It's a super-common occurrence with my workflows because they all have log files. Asking users to run shell commands is a fundamentally fraught proposition. Look at all the screw-ups in the DownVid thread. It still requires running a script. My preference would be for context-menu items ("Reveal Workflow Cache in Finder" + "Reveal Workflow Data in Finder") that are greyed out if the directories don't exist.

  11. For those who are interested I have created a workflow for running iOS shortcuts from Alfred using a spare iOS (12.0 or above) device (I use a second hand iPhone SE). Here is a short video I have published to Reddit: This workflow requires a Siri Shortcut to get a list of your shortcuts: https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/f8dcbc7ac14f4d03b1fc3bcebf28b2f5 Once the workflow has been imported you will need to put your Pushcut API key into the "api" variable by typing !pushcutapi in Alfred and then type into Alfred !pushcutupdate and Helper shortcut will

  12. I do both, small workflows in one mono repo (https://github.com/nikitavoloboev/small-workflows) updated with OneUpdater. Workflows with more code are updated with deanishe library https://github.com/deanishe/awgo which is the go version of his python library (and shared either in small workflows or as a separate repo). I like this structure as there is too much friction I feel in sharing a small workflow by creating a new github repo every time. One other thing that's useful to know is how to symlink workflows.

  13. Shouldn't be necessary: it defaults to False, IIRC. The example in the docs is just a context-free example, not real, working code. I wouldn’t recommend putting the code in the if __name__ == '__main__' clause. It can raise an exception, so it should be wrapped by wf.run(), and it logically belongs with the other item-generation code, not the "execute if this is the main script" code.

  14. Alfred doesn't provide a built-in way to update workflows. My Python library you’re using in your workflow does, however, and your GitHub repo is set up perfectly to use it. It should be pretty simple to set up. Check out the documentation.

  15. Ok, I've published v0.3.2! This should please @Bemawr and @Voland and any other Tweetbot users! (Albeit, Tweetbot has a much more limited set of URL schemes to work with). 🎩 Download the latest. Changelog [v0.3.2] - 2020-09-06 Fixed Quick fix for missing non-personalized `users` query. [v0.3.1] - 2020-09-06 Fixed Replaced “(from:{var:account})” with “from:{var:account}” (no parens) from app searches. Fixed on errant search that targeted videos rather than all tweets. [v0.3.0] - 2020-09-04 Added Support for Tweetbo

  16. There is no localisation. Alfred only "speaks" British English (except in a few, deliberately-chosen places, such as the American spelling of "licence").

  17. Clean clutter from URLs such as all sorts of utm_ variants and subdomains like m. for mobile sites. Run lc and input a URL, or leave it blank to use your clipboard contents. Action it and a clean link will be copied to your clipboard and pasted to your frontmost app. If given a shotened URL, redirects will be followed before cleaning. Download | Source

  18. Thanks for looking into it.

  19. Oh, I noticed you distribute your workflow in a ZIP file. Workflow files already are ZIP files, just with a different extension, so zipping them again is generally pointless.

  20. It would be nice to have a few shortcuts for the debugging in the Workflow. Notably to expose the debugging panel as well as to clear the output. As I use VSCode all the time and my memory muscle always wants to use cmd J to toggle hide and show the debug area and cmd K to clear the output screen. I figure a lot of people would do the same thing

  21. An update This workflow seems to be working with Alfred 4.1 on macOS Big Sur Public Beta. I combine it with Unclutter to quickly access my desktop file from the upper drawer folder and sync the DeskDrawer folder to another Mac, an iPhone and iPad via Resilio Sync.. No problem so far 👍

  22. Updated August 24, 2018 This is now a single workflow -- there are hotkeys for the following five actions: Uppercase Lowercase Capitalize - capitalizes all words (e.g. Posting A New Topic In Share Your Workflows) Title Case - capitalizes word except for "the", "in", "of" etc. according to American English title conventions (e.g. Posting a New Topic in Share Your Workflows) Sentence Case - capitalizes only the first letter of the first word & converts the rest to lower case All of these are set to Copy to Clipboard and Paste by default

    RPN calculator

    @dfay Thank you, thank you! I am in your debt. I literally upgraded Alfred just for this. When I'm on Slack and need to complete a sentence like "we frobnicated 6,122,849 doodads between 8:28 and 12:49, a rate of one million every..." – which seems to be a lot of my life the past few weeks – there is nothing so useful as a good RPN calculator, and none so close to hand and fast to use as yours. Thank you.

    Run macOS Services

    Thanks. So it works with types other than plaintext, basically. You execute a service by passing its name and a pasteboard to NSPerformService(), so the input has to be on a pasteboard in any case. The workflow just reads the types of data on the pasteboard, and shows you a list of your services that understand one or more of those types (except when you use the File Action, which also puts the files on the pasteboard). After that, it calls the API with the service and pasteboard.

    Typo: I’m curious as to why you’re faking ⌘C plus a delay instead of using Argument: Selection in macOS on the Hotkey Trigger.

  26. Thanks for reporting a bug. Could you give me more hint by sending me some debug info? I think I need to look into your htmlCacheLog.json to resolve the issue. You can send the file to below email. (gravityc95@gmail.com)

  27. @rob213 I've merged your threads on this topic. Please don't keep creating new threads about the same thing. Keep it all in one place where it's easier to find. You can edit the thread title if you need to. Also, you should consider exporting the actual macro and posting a link to it, so people can import it instead of having to recreate it based on screenshots. This won't work a lot (perhaps most) of the time. URLs often have more than one parameter, and your macro will delete them.

  34. Sure. You could write a script that generates an alfred://customsearch/ URL based on the active tab and then opens it in Alfred. Good luck figuring out how to insert {query} in the right place. Outputs > Post Notification. Have you actually looked at the workflow elements that are available?

  35. @vitor it was an error in the regex as you say. With another regex, it works perfectly. Thank you so much Vitor !! Sorry for giving you headaches !

  36. Instead of dropping a CSV, press the + and add a row. Make the Title and Subtitle whatever you want, but Arg is important as it will be used for the Conditional Utility to pick a branch. You’ll also need a couple of Argument and Variables Utilities (leave those as they are; they don’t need any modification to keep working, no matter how many transformations and branches you add). Here’s a copy of that Workflow. For testing, I had to change a few details of your existing nodes that you’ll want to add back. Namely I’ve replaced the regex transformation itself and removed

  39. @rob213 That's still a browser though, not an app that could allow AppleScript support, etc... Might want to take a look at the existing translation workflows, including one for dict.cc - they're not that recent, so might need to some adjustments, but would be a better starting point. And for DeepL, which I'm not familiar with personally but many people seem to really like: https://github.com/m9dfukc/deepl-alfred-workflow Cheers, Vero

  40. @rob213 If you share what translation app you're referring to, fellow users who know the app might be able to tell you whether there's a way to do it Cheers, Vero

  42. Hi @AsterY, welcome to the forum. I believe Alfred’s Lock works by simulating the Hotkey for macOS’s “Lock Screen” function, which is ^⌘Q. So what’s probably happening is that QQ has redefined ^⌘Q, which is why it’s activating.

  44. Hello! I made an Alfred 3 workflow to search and switch between open windows in the system and Safari (and Chrome) tabs. More app-by-app support are (hopefully) coming. It is uses the companion native app, that's what makes it much faster than the other alternatives. https://github.com/mandrigin/AlfredSwitchWindows/releases Sierra only (at the moment). PS: Thanks to Emanuele Munafò and his "Windows Switcher" workflow for the inspiration.

  46. @Richard D Could you please let us know which version of Alfred and macOS you're using? This is fairly vital information when posting an issue. Assuming you're on Catalina, there are two possible sources of this issue: 1. Display issue Do you use an external screen occasionally? One possibility is that if macOS has to switch between retina and non-retina, it loses resolution of where your visible screen is and is actually showing Alfred off-screen. If that's the case, you should be able to hit Cmd + Space and type something that will give you a predictable r

  49. You can exclude files/folders by adding alfred:ignore to the Spotlight Comments of the file/folder you want Alfred to ignore. You can also add files/folders to System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy to ignore it. You might need to clear Alfred's caches (type reload in Alfred) for it to pick up the updated metadata.
