    Alfred Markdown Notes

    Markdown Notes help to manage Markdown files in a directory with powerful full text search (supports & and |), tag search or search for todos ( - [ ] or * [ ]) . It also allows to quickly create new notes based on custom templates. I started to write this to replace the ton of Note taking apps that I used a while ago. I spent a lot of time to get this to work and the setup is a bit complex but once you went thru the steps it can indeed replace your note taking app. The best MD Editor for this purpose is Typora but any other MD editor works as well. Download at Git as usual: https://github.com/Acidham/alfred-markdown-notes

    Mac App Store Search

    Search the Mac App Store and view search results with artwork previews right in Alfred. Open search results in App Store.app (default behavior) Quick Look search results' preview pages right in Alfred (press Shift, the Quick Look feature must be enabled in Alfred's preferences) Open search results' preview pages in your default browser (modifier key — Command) The workflow's preferences (keyword — masprefs) allow you to set the maximum search results limit and preferred store country, as well as clear the artwork cache. Additional keywords allow you to open the App Store app's Purchases (“masp”) and Updates (“masu”) tabs. Download

    I have something in the works which I think will make you very happy with regards to this. That's all I'm saying for now

    First party sync service

    CloudKit may work just fine for applications that manage their own data using its APIs, but that isn't Alfred. A lot of the files being synced don't belong to Alfred: they belong to workflows. As a result, Alfred isn't in a position to manage (via revisions or whatever) the many sync conflicts iCloud's crapness causes because Alfred doesn't have sufficient information to do so. Alfred's current sync Just Works with any software that can reliably sync files/directories, be it Dropbox, rsync, Unison, Seafile or whatever. You're talking about completely rewriting Alfred's sync/file management in order to use a service that has a long history of losing data. Replacing a system that works wonderfully (if you're using reliable sync software). The new limitations to Dropbox's free accounts suck, but I'm not convinced that's a sound reason to ditch a working, platform-agnostic sync solution for one that's tied to a legendarily unreliable service.

    @Luciano Santana (and anyone else following along), there are a few commands (Create New Timer, Create New Alarm, and View Recent) that are still broken in Alfred 3. I have a branch that fixes them. (I also submitted a PR to Luciano's repo.)

    Do Not Disturb, Limited

    My first (exported) workflow: Do Not Disturb, Limited - Toggle the macOS Do Not Disturb feature, optionally for a specified length of time. I was really inspired by CalmNotifications but I always forgot to toggle it back. Plus, I really wanted the indicator to reflect the current status, which didn't happen when the "set a plist value and kill NotificationCenter" method is used. Releases | Source

    Just saying thanks!

    Hey all! 😁 I only found Alfred yesterday, thanks to a YouTube video where the guy mentioned it as a 'must have' Mac OS app. Thank you all for the work on Alfred, workflows and everything else I am finding on this forum. forums are so damn good when ppl get together like this and share the good stuff 😃 Thanks folks! These workflows and stuff are incredible.

    Speed and compiled workflows

    The thing with Python is the startup time. If you’re using my library, for example, it takes ~0.05s to load Python and import the libraries. 0.05s is definitely perceptible. As far as optimising Python workflows goes, I focus on caching and lazy imports. They're always going to be noticeably slower than compiled workflows, though. I mostly use Go these days. It’s somewhat more effort to write than Python, but 20x faster.

    Workflow for Outlook V16 Search

    I create a workflow for searching mail from Outlook for Mac V16 (A.K.A. 2016). Now it support searching Mail sender, Subject and Preview Content with below format: olk [keyword] And also you can search with multiple keywords: olk [keyword1] [keyword2] [keyword3] To limit search scope in one attribute: olk from:[keyword] olk title:[keywords1] [keywords2] ... By default, this workflow searches mail from all folders and with default page size 20, for results more than 20, you can click last item 'Next 20 Results...' to go to next page. You can also configure the search: olkc pagesize [number] for change search result in one result list. olkc folder then you can get a list of all your Outlook folders, choose one to limit search scope. Project hosted in Github: https://github.com/xeric/alfred-outlook Download latest release workflow file from: https://github.com/xeric/alfred-outlook/releases Welcome your feedbacks!

    Yeah, I mostly use neovim. But of course I use Xcode, too. If I want to write a good GUI app, then I should start with a good GUI library. And then I use the editor/IDE that works best with that library. I'm trying to write halfway decent software, not have a great time writing a turd. I don't see any point in epic productivity gains if, in the end, that leads to producing crap.

    Need this super program on Windows

    If I had to pick some things that are never going to happen, Alfred for Windows wouldn't be much further down the list than my baldness spontaneously curing itself.

    Need this super program on Windows

    Either work on Alfred for Windows already started, or it hasn’t. If it has, registering support does nothing because it would happen anyway. If it hasn’t, even if work on it started today it would take so long (with the current team), that by the time it was done there would be no guarantee all the people asking for it today would still be interested. Over years there’s only been a handful of people expressing interest in this, not nearly enough to justify the commitment to support a whole new platform. Alfred Remote for Android would make sense way before Alfred for Windows, and that is unlikely to happen as well (there’s another thread on it). Yes, in theory it could happen. In practice, you shouldn’t get your hopes up in the slightest.

    Basecamp Workflow

    Right-click on the workflow in Alfred Preferences and choose "Open in Terminal". If you did the above, Terminal should have opened a new window set to the workflow directory. Just enter bundle install --standalone and hit ↩.

    I added a workflow to go with this set of Themes, you can find it on the same Github repo in the Workflows folder It features two commands : "theme" : toggle between Dark & Light themes for both macOS & Alfred. "theme red" : switch to the Red Accented Alfred Theme. Here is a screenshot of the MojaveThemeSwitcher and its options:

    Download the zip file from the repo (Clone or download > Download ZIP) and extract it. Go into the new directory, select all the files, right-click and choose "Compress 11 Items". That will create Archive.zip. change the name to Archive.alfredworkflow and double-click it.

    I've been recently playing around with launchbar and switch back and forth between it and Alfred. One thing I noticed that is pretty killer in launchbar, is the ability to use macOS services. Launchbar is indexing them by default and lets you use them either with normal text or files. A proposal could be: Type some text (or use a workflow to get the selected text and propagate the alfred window with it) Hit CTRL Select "Use Service" (or directly suggest them) Hit enter on a service to use them And the same with files. Hit CTRL and propagate the actions window with services that support the file type, next to workflow actions and default alfred actions I think this would make Alfred a lot more powerful without the need to create custom workflows. A lot of apps (the majority?) already exposes services, and being able to use them directly within alfred would be great. For example, some workflows that I manually wrote that would be possible with a service: DEVONthink: Add notes or files Delivers: Add a delivery from a text string Fantastical, Cardhop, Things: Add new entry directly from text Screenshot of available services enabled on my system when selecting text: Screenshot of available services when selecting a file:

    Hi @deanishe Thanks for your interest. There is a hint in the placeholder on how to install lua (brew install lua53) Sure, good point. The thousands separator should be commas, when the decimal point is a full stop. I'll change that. In the meantime, it can be changed in 'pcalc.lua' as shown below.

    Script Filter Contact Output

    I don't know if I get it right, but if you want to search for a contact and get the output like the default contact search of Alfred, then you can search your address book database using a File Filter based on your contact name that you get from your first script filter and send the found contact to open in Alfred (if Alfred is set to "Open Contacts in Alfred"). What I mean is: [Your Script Filter] -> {query is now your contact name} -> [The File Filter that gives you a list of matches] -> [Open the match in Alfred] Here is an example: https://d.pr/f/yIPU1v Just change the "ys" keyword object to your Script Filter If you Employee name is always the first in the list then you can rapidly press a second Enter to go directly to the Alfred Contact Viewer (or automate this second Enter key press) It could be done by using a second Script Filter, but if you want to access your contacts database directly then I think using the File Filter could be an easy way To give credits, my File Filter that search the Address Book database is a modified version of @Vero workflow that you can find here:

    The new snippet feature is great. Would be even greater to have fill-ins in snippets. Especially since Text-expander has become very expensive; this will be the perfect textexpander replacer!

    First, tell your browser to handle mailto: links in Gmail. Then, connect a Keyword Input to a Run Script Action with bin/bash as the Language and code: open "mailto://YOUR_EMAIL_HERE?subject=Reminder: ${1}". Whatever you pass through to the Keyword Input will be in the subject.

    @Bhishan I've implemented this in a much larger workflow, so I'd recommend downloading @Andrew's posted above (July 18, 2018) - which fixes the original workflow: I just checked, and his Dropbox upload still works.

    Hello everyone, it would be pretty cool if it would be possible to select multiple Files, Clips or whatever from the Clipboard history and paste it. For instance: I would have copied a few files and wanna paste them. Here is an example: If i could now just press Shift+Arrow down to select multiple items and then just paste them that would be awesome If there is another way then lemme know, but else this would be decent to have. Another addition to that would be the ability to change the Shortcut for adding files to the file buffer. Something like ⌘+C and ⌘+V would make the file Buffer/Navigation even better Cheers, Frozen

    That's a huge issue. Unless Alfred creates this file or the developer doesn't have to think about creating this file, this system won't work. As many would simply not bother adding more friction to their workflow of writing and publishing their workflows. imo

    I’m guessing the problem is that it feels like a hacky solution. Looking at it in the future after you forget (or another person looking at it), it will look like a mistake. That it is. If you’re using a hacky solution anyway, one that you can see is less likely to come back to bite you.

    Update. Added support for Vivaldi and Brave. I’ve skipped Opera since while we can get the URL and Title from a tab, we can’t execute JavaScript (to run the bookmarklet to add bookmarks). The capability seems to be there (being Chromium-based) but not a way of turning it on. To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.

    Just sharing my own experience: I had "no results and fallback to default search" until I granted "Full Disk Access" rights to Alfred. You can do that in System Preferences/Security & Privacy/Privacy/Full Disk Access. Click the padlock icon to allow changes, then drag Alfred to the app list on the right. Make sure it's checked, restart Alfred, done. Voila, work like charm. This is MacOS Mojave 10.14.3 and Alfred v3.8 Thanks for the great wf, @Vero

    Outlook for Mac workflow

    I've never seen the database file error. The way the workflow work is by searching through Spotlight for filetypes belonging to Outlook (contacts, messages and events) in the ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/Main Profile folder. It could be: Some sort of permission issue (check that the ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/Main Profile folder is readable) A path issue (lets say, your database had to be renamed because of a corruption, do you have more than one profile folder in ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/?) A launch service database issue (you need to rebuild the launch service database, a free app like Onyx could do that for you). Corentin

    I'm trying to make a workflow that accepts a single parameter "N" (a number) and then uses that to merge the last N clipboards, and paste that to the frontmost app. Let's call it "clipmerge" and it uses keyword `cm`. e.g. "cm9" would take {clipboard:0} {clipboard:1} ... {clipboard:8} and merge them. Anyone got any ideas on how to achieve this? edit: I figured out my own solution... click here

    Not sure this isn't the expected behaviour, tbh. As a workaround, you can use a capture group to keep the newline from the input:

    # fuzzylist Fuzzy, self-updating list filter workflow for Alfred 3 This is a workflow template - it does nothing as is. ## Usage: - create a csv file like you would for an Alfred List Filter - name the file *list.csv* and add it to the workflow directory On the initial run, the workflow will create a file list.json for output to the fuzzy search. If list.csv is modified, it will update list.json . ## Credits - uses fuzzy.py by @deanishe - https://github.com/deanishe/alfred-fuzzy ## Download workflow at https://github.com/derickfay/fuzzylist/blob/master/Fuzzy List Filter.alfredworkflow
