    Firefox Assistant

    Like Safari Assistant, but for Firefox. Download from GitHub. Search Firefox bookmarks Search Firefox browsing history Run bookmarklets Activate & close tabs Add you own custom scripts The workflow requires you to install a corresponding Firefox extension in order to communicate with Firefox. After installing the workflow, run ffass > Install Firefox Extension to get the extension. Once the extension is installed, everything should just work. The workflow is fairly customisable. You can add your own URL actions via scripts, set custom icons, and assign URL & tab actions and bookmarklets to alternate hotkeys. See the documentation for details.

    Calculate Anything

    Calculate Anything is a workflow for Alfred 4, that uses natural language and is able to calculate multiple things like currency, time, vat, percentage, etc. Why? There are several workflows out there but i just needed a workflow that worked naturally for example you can open alfred and type 100 + 9 and alfred will give you a result no need for keywords or hotkeys it just works, i wanted to be able to jus type 100 + 16% or 100 euros to usd or 100km to cm or 100 years to hours and a large etc. and so this workflow was created. Features - Natural language - type 100 euros to dollars or 100 euros in usd or 100€ to $ or 100eur usd or 100 euros a dolares. It does not matter, the same result will be displayed. - Currency - Up to 168 currencies - Units - 100 kilometers to meters or 100km to m or maybe 100km m - Percentages - 100 + 16% | 100 - 16% etc. - PX,Em,Rem,Pt - 12px or 12px to em or 12px pt - Time - time +15 years? now plus 15 hours? or need to convert a timestamp? - VAT - value added tax calculations, we all need this - Translations You can create your own translations to display results in your language - Keywords Extend the natural language in the queries so you can type 100 dolares a pesos and the code will see 100usd to mxn Download Download directly from Github releases page, make sure to download the latest release. Download here Base Configuration There's only one global configuration and is the language, this configuration will be used to display the messages in your own language. View the Translations secction for the available languaes. Configure it with. calculate configure and select Set base language and enter the language for example es_ES For more information about configuration click here Currency You can use natural language or type a few characters and that's all, for example: 100 usd to mxn 100$ in mxn 100€ to $ 100 euros to dollars 100 euros a dolares (you can also write it in your own language) 100eur (If no target the currency will be converted to the base currency that you configured) All this examples will simply work, you can add spaces between the value and the currency or don't. If by any chance you don't remember the currency symbol or abbreviation simply type calculate list and select "List Available Currencies" (view the gift above) Currency Options By default the workflow will use exchangerates api to make the conversion, exchangerates has only support for 32 currencies, if you need support for all the currencies that this worflow includes you need to get a FREE API Key from https://fixer.io it takes less than a minute. The following options are available for the currency. Simply launch Alfred and type calculate configure and select any of the options below. View the configuration section for more info Set base currency This will become your base currency, if you type 100eur it will automatically be converted to mxn, examples of currency (USD, EUR, MXN, CAD, etc) Set currency locale Used to give format to the converted amount using the money format of your contry Set Fixer API Set your fixer API Key for support more currencies Currency Symbols You can also use currency symbols in your query for example 100¥ to € will be converted to 100JPY to EUR, here is a list of available symbols. Please go to the repo description on Github for a full list of supported symbols it's really difficult to write them here in the forum. View Currency Symbols Units You can write your query using natural language or just a few characters, either way this workflow will give you the result you need. 100 ounces to kilograms 100oz to kg 100oz = kg 100oz kg 10 years to months 10years to seconds 1 year to sec 1hr s 10 días a horas (use your own language) If you don't remember the unit abbreviation just simply type the name for example instead of "oz" you can type "ounce" or "ounces" or even use words in your own language for exaple "onza" or "onzas" in spanish. Finally if you still don't remember the unit abbreviation or it's name simply type calculate list and select "List Available Units" you can type to filter, etc. Please go to the repo description on Github for a full list of units it's really difficult to write them here in the forum. View Units Units Options The following options are available. Simply launch Alfred and type calculate configure and select any of the options below. View the configuration section for more info Set System of Measurement Here you can define your System of Measurement, this option is still in development but as the workflow grows this might be necessary for US users, by default the metric system will be used but you can define imperial or metric Percentages You can easily calculate percentages for example: 15% of 50 = 7.50 //7.5 equals to 15% of 50 120 + 30% = 156 //120 plus the 30% of 120 120 plus 30% = 156 //120 plus the 30% of 120 120 - 30% = 84 //120 minus the 30% of 120 120 minus 30% = 84 //120 minus the 30% of 120 30 % 40 = 75% // 30 is 75% of 40. Translations and natural language can also be used 120 más 30% = 156 Time Time is triggered by a keyword because is not often used so you can simply open alfred and type time Gives you the current time time Converts the timestamp to a regular date time 1577836800 Gives you the time from now plus anything you want time +15 days time now plus 3 days Number of days until specified date time days until 31 december The start date of current year time start of year The start date of specified year time start of 2021 The end date of current year time end of year The end date of specified year time end of 2021 It also works in your language time inicio de 2020 time fin de 2020 time dias hasta 31 diciembre Get information about date time 31 December, 2021 18:00:00 time 31/12/2021 18:00:00 time 12/31/2021 18:00:00 Calculate the difference between two dates time 25 December, 2021 - 31 December, 2021 time 31-11-2019 - 21-11-2019 time 11/31/2019 - 11/21/2019 Time Options The following options are available. Simply launch Alfred and type calculate configure and select any of the options below. View the configuration section for more info Set base timezone Base time zone to calculate dates in your time for example (America/Los_Angeles, Mexico/General, etc.) Add date format Configure a new date format so the date is displayed the way you want for example (j F, Y, g:i:s a) Delete date format It will show you a list of configured date formats, simply select the one you want to delete and press enter to remove it Time will use the language that you configure with Set base language VAT (value added tax) With this you can calculate the vat of a given amount. Like time, vat is also triggered with the keyword "vat" you can change the keyword in the workflow. Given the following query vat of 400 (with 16% vat configured, you can configure your own percentage) You will get VAT of 400 = 64 // VAT Amount 400 plus VAT = 464 // Amount plus vat 400 minus VAT = 344.82 // Amount minus vat VAT Options The following options are available. Simply launch Alfred and type calculate configure and select any of the options below. View the configuration section for more info Set VAT percentage for example (16%) Configuration You can easily configure the workflow simply by opening Alfred and typing calculate configure you will see a list of all the available options to configure the workflow, select the option you want and press enter then simply enter your value and again press enter to save it. Check the following gif if you have doubts. Translations Please check the available languages on Github, it's easier to update the information there and also how you can create a translation. Keywords Keywords are words that can be used when writing a query in natural language for example a keyword "ounces" will be converted to "oz", "kilometers" will be converted to "km" or "dollars" will be converted to "USD", "seconds" will become "s" and a large etc. This keywords allows the user to type in a more natural way and in their own language. You can write your own keywords to extend the functionality, please check the information on Github. Stop Words Stop words are words that can be used in the query when using natural language for example "100km to cm" - here the stop word is "to" Stop words are useful for two things: Allows the user to write more naturally and in their own language (e.g 100 dolares a mxn) "a" is the stop word Are used to check if the query has to be processed for example: 100km equals meters if the word "equals" is not registered in the stop_words array then it won't be processed. At the end this stop words are removed so 100km to cm becomes 100km cm. Please take a look at the readme on Github to learn more about this. For Currency, Percentages and Units this workflow will only process the query if it begins with a digit and it has at least 3 characters. Time and VAT have a keyword because those are not often used. Updates Updates are installed automatically when a new version is released you don't have to do anything but if want you can check for new updates manually just launch Alfred and type calculate update the workflow will check for updates and it will let you now if there are any updates available. Lastly This is the first workflow that I create I just had 3 days to do it and 1 was for finding, naming flags, creating translations, creating the readme and this post. If you find a bug or you think this workflow can be improved please let me know or if I created/configured/exported the workflow incorrectly please let me know and I'll fix it. I just purchased Alfred Powerpack and had a great time creating this workflow and I hope that someone finds it useful apart from my lovely wife.

    Alfred 4 Read about this workflow below. This is an update to address the new Alfred 4 data folder (thanks to xilopaint). DOWNLOAD Description Alfred 3 workflow to search and create notes in Evernote. Search Keywords ens to search in every note field ens @ to search in a selected notebook ens # to search notes with a selected tags You can use ent (search in titles only) or enr (search in reminders) or entodo (search to-do notes) or enrec (search notes updated within a week) or enu (search notes with a source URL) instead of ens. You can select multiple tags to fine tune your searching. Just add a second hash sign and select or type the tag e.g. ens #tag1 #tag2 :my query In addition, you can select a single notebook then tags too e.g. ent @notebook #tag1 #tag2 :my query Note that, if you want to select a notebook and/or tags, the query goes after the colon sign as seen above. Actions Return key to open the note Shift key to preview the note Option key to set a reminder Control key to paste the note text content to the top most application Function key to open the note URL Command key to append text (from clipboard, selected text or typed) or selected file(s) in Finder. After pressing the Command key a new Alfred window will be shown so you will be able to select the text source and the action: Return key will append without date Option key with append with current date Hint: You can also use the Command key to only add tags to a note. To do so, type or select a tag and don't type anything after the colon then select the source "Type a Note" e.g. enn #tag : Note that Alfred Fallback Search is also supported (you have to add it in Alfred 2 Preferences>Features>Default Results, then click Setup fallback results button). Create Keyword enn You can optionally type the note title or, for a more complex creation, follow the syntax below: @Notebook #tag1 #tag2 !reminder :Title @notebook: after typing @ a list of notebooks will be displayed then select one or type it; the default will be used if omitted #tags: after typing # a list of tags will be displayed then select one or type a new one (multiple tags are supported, type each one after a hash sign) !reminder: after typing an exclamation point a list of reminder suggestions will be displayed then select one or type a custom reminder such as in 4 days or 05/01/2014 or 05/01/2014 at 2:00 Title: at the end, after a colon (or the second colon if you are adding time in your reminder) Note that items of the syntax are optional, however the syntax has to end with a colon, with or without typing the note title e.g. #tag1 : Note Content Source From clipboard From selected text Typed directly in Alfred From Safari or Google Chrome URL From message(s) selected in Mail app From file(s) selected in Finder app: you can create one note with files or one note for each selected files. Alfred File Browser also supported. Type a Note also supports multiple lines and, in this case, the first line will be the title of the note e.g. enn Line 1 /n Line 2 /n Line 3 Actions Return key: create a note Control Key: create a note and open it Command key: append text or file to a note Option key: append text to a note with current date How to Append Highlight one of the note content source e.g. From Clipboard Optionally type tags and a reminder e.g. #tag1 #tag2 !tomorrow hold command key and hit return key select a note from the list (search by title only) and hit return key Mail Message subject as the note title Message received date as the note creation date Message Link as the note source URL A short header (e.g. sender) A plain text version of the email content Note Templates Read about templates here. Preferences Bring Alfred and type the keyword enpref: Search wildcard: you can set the workflow to automatically use the Evernote search wildcard (*) or you can set the workflow to use only if it is typed (the Manual setting may by faster in a huge note collection).

    New Bear Alfred Workflow

    I've created a new Bear Alfred workflow here: https://github.com/drgrib/alfred-bear It is faster compared to the current Bear Alfred workflow because it is written in Go instead of Python and has optimized SQL queries. It also adds tag searching and autocompletion, link pasting, and clipboard content to note on creation. I do appreciate the author of the original Bear Alfred workflow because I started mine from his design.

    At the moment, when you assign a key combination to a particular hotkey in Alfred, it keeps you from using the same key combination with a different hotkey. While this make sense in most scenarios, when the hotkey is assigned to a particular app - as specified in the Related Apps panel of the hotkey, and selecting the option that limits the hotkey to when the app takes focus - it seems unnecessary to restrict the user from using the same key combination with other apps that might have focus. As a result, I'd like to request this feature be added to Alfred. Without this ability, it causes users to have to come up with increasingly ridiculous key combinations that they can never remember (OK ... that I can never remember 😉). Or, to rely on another intermediary app - like the Better Touch Tool - to assign app-specific shortcuts that are attached to External Triggers in Alfred. BTT is great, but let's cut out the middleman and keep Alfred's shortcuts in Alfred!! Thanks for your consideration! PS - This request comes from a previous that can be found here:

    OCR: extract text from snapshot

    Hi there, Just sharing my first workflow. Some OCR workflow already exist but are relying on some obscur chinese API with exposed personal credentials... This one use your system own installation of `tesseract`. Just take a snapshot and paste the text. The script usually takes no more than a few seconds. https://github.com/nicooprat/alfred-ocr PR welcome. Hope it helps!

    Paste text sequentially. Each time you invoke the shortcut, the previous clipboard entry will be pasted. After a set number of minutes—configured with the reset_mins Workflow Environment Variable—the shortcut will begin again with the most recent entry. Call :sequentialpasteresetcount for a manual reset. Download | Source

    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!

    Duplicate apps in results (10.15 and V4)

    @unitof Alfred is showing the actual location of the apps as passed back to him by macOS when searching. I'm going to be adding a bit of logic to be able to show the virtual locations of the apps (/Applications/.../) in a future release. Cheers, Andrew

    (faster) Menu Search

    I have re-implemented ctwise's excellent implementation of the Menu Search workflow in Swift. This version is ever so slightly faster (at least on my machine ) - YMMV. Requires OSX 10.7+ Download Setup Accessibility must be enabled for Alfred in order for this to work properly. For example, in macOS Sierra, this is configured using the Security and Privacy preference pane, under the Privacy tab with the Accessibility section selected. Alfred must be included in the list of apps allowed to control your computer. This step is required for the workflow to generate the list of menu items, and also click on a specific menu item. Here's a snapshot of what the preference pane might look like in macOS Sierra. Usage Type m in Alfred to list menu bar items for front most application You can filter menu items by name, or do a fuzzy search. E.g m new tab will match the menu item New Tab m cw will match the menu item Close Window Settings You can change the workflow environment variables to fine tune menu listings -show-disabled true/false controls if diabled menu items should be shown (default is false) - change this setting if certain items are not displayed, even though active -show-apple-menu true/false if true, menus items under the apple menu will be shown (default is false) -max-children number how many sub-menu items to load for each menu item (default is 30) -max-depth number how many nested levels if sub menus should be listed (default is 10) v1.6 and above You can also have customised settings per app. Typing ms into Alfred will give you a list of options to configure your settings.txt config file. The workflow comes bundled with a sample configuration file for reference. Your app settings will override any workflow level variable settings you may have specified. Here's the settings file I use for reference: # always show disabled menu items appFilters { app: "BibDesk" showDisabledMenuItems: true } # for Safari, ignore the History and Bookmarks # menus since loading it take a lot of time appFilters { app: "Safari" ignoreMenuPaths { path: "History" } ignoreMenuPaths { path: "Bookmarks" } } # For Finder alone, show the Apple menu entries, # and ignore any recent entries listed in the # Apple > Recent Items menu appFilters { app: "Finder" showAppleMenu: true ignoreMenuPaths { path: "Apple" path: "Recent Items" } } Change log 1.0 - Initial Release 1.1 - Added Fuzzy Text Matching for Menus If you have a menu item New Tab, then typing m nt in Alfred will match New Tab, since n and t matches the first letters of the menu text. 1.1.1 - Changed run behaviour to terminate previous script, this makes the experience slightly more faster 1.2 - Completely native menu clicking, removed reliance on AppleScript 1.2.1 - Performance improvements when generating menus using direct JSON encoding 1.2.2 - More performance improvements while filtering menu items 1.3 - Added -async flag to allow threaded scanning and populating of menus 1.4 - Added -cache setting to enable menu result caching and also set a timeout for cache invalidation 1.4.1 - Invalidate cache (if present) after actioning a menu press 1.4.2 - Slide the cache invalidation window forward in case we get invalidated by a near miss 1.4.3 - Speed improvements to caching, text search and fuzzy matching 1.4.4 - Added -no-apple-menu flag that will skip the apple menu items 1.4.5 - Tuned fuzzy matcher, allows non-continuous anchor token search 1.5 - Faster caching using protocol buffers 1.5.1 - Reduced file creation for cache storage 1.5.2 - Better support for command line apps that create menu bar owning applications 1.5.3 - Protocol buffer everything - microscopic speed improvements, but hey... 1.5.4 - Added various environment variables to fine tune menu listings 1.5.5 - Tweaked ranking of search results for better menu listings 1.6 - Per app customization via the `settings.txt` configuration file

    Notion.so Instant Search Workflow

    For those who love Notion.so (really great documentation & more tool), you will know how useful it would be to get instant search results from Notion in Alfred. To that reason I've created a workflow that does exactly that, allowing you to search your Notion.so workspace from Alfred, showing instant results, and the ability to open the browser to your selected page. There are two env variables required (the notion search api isn't documented), these can be obtained by inspecting the network request from a notion search, as documented in github below. Check it out and download here: https://github.com/wrjlewis/notion-search-alfred-workflow/blob/master/README.md

    Please refer to the Github page for full documentation. Or download here. Basically, this is a workflow that allows you to create and view your self-defined cheatsheets. "It was designed to help remind *nix system administrators of options for commands that they use frequently, but not frequently enough to remember". Alfred makes your cheat sheets searchable and enables a very quick glance at some commands with your finger tips. This project was inspired by a command-line project cheat, extended its capability and yet acts as an independent tool. If you use "cheat" before, you can safely import your old cheat sheets in one hit. If you haven't heard of "cheat", you can start accumulating knowledges by writing your cheat sheets and make them searchable. To list all your cheat: cheat To search and list the content of one of your cheat: cheat <sheet name>. Fuzzy search and autocomplete is supported. To search in a specific sheet indexed by some keyword: cheat <sheet name> <keyword>. To search across all your sheets for some keyword: cheat --search <keyword> Autocomplete and fuzzy search are supported of course. For more detail and a git demo, refer to the Github page please.

    This is a workflow for searching and adding bookmarks to Raindrop.io. To search your Raindrop.io bookmarks, open Alfred, type r, space, and then your search query, and the results will show directly in Alfred so that you can select one and press enter to open it in your browser. Raindrop.io collections and tags will also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with a search. If a web browser is the frontmost app when you open a bookmark from this workflow, it will open in that browser. If you are working in another app, the bookmark will open in your default browser. Hold the cmd-key to view the URL for a bookmark. Hold the ctrl-key to view the description for a bookmark. Hold the option-key while pressing enter, or use cmd+c to copy the URL instead of opening it in a browser. Press enter before you have started typing a search query, and Raindrop.io itself will open in your active web browser. To add a new bookmark to Raindrop.io, first make sure that you have the webpage you want to add opened in a browser and that it is the frontmost window, and then open Alfred and type ra followed by a space In the first step you choose collection for the new bookmark, and you can either type to search for the collection you want to add the new bookmark to or just select one in the list. Hold the cmd-key to save when you select the collection, and skip setting a custom title or adding tags. In the second step you get to change the title that the bookmark is saved with. Hold the cmd-key to save and skip the tag adding step. In the third step you get to add tags to your new bookmark. You can either simply type them out, or select from a list of tags that matches what you have started to type. Separate multiple tags with comma. Hold the cmd-key to save when selecting a tag in the list, and skip the option of adding more tags. The Firefox support for adding bookmarks was made possible with the help of deanishe's great workflow Firefox Assistant, which needs to be installed in Alfred for the Firefox support to function. Get it here: https://github.com/deanishe/alfred-firefox If the workflow is not authenticated with Raindrop.io when you initiate it, you will be taken to the authentication process. To set keyboard shortcuts, go to the "Search Raindrop.io" workflow in the Alfred preferences and look in the top left corner, where you can set keyboard shortcuts for searching Raindrop.io, or for adding bookmarks. To change other settings, go to the "Search Raindrop.io" workflow in the Alfred preferences, and click the [𝒙] button in the top right corner, where you get descriptions of the options in the information view to the left, and set the options by changing the value of the variables to the right. One special thing with this workflow is that it detects if the topmost window is a browser window, and then opens the search results in that browser. So, if you are currently working in Firefox, your bookmark will open in a new tab there, and if you are currently working in Safari, or in Chrome, the bookmark will open there instead. If the topmost application is not a browser, the bookmark will be opened in your default browser. This makes this extension perfect for those who use more than one browser. You can always open bookmarks in the exact same way, and still have them displayed in the browser you are currently using. The supported browsers are: Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Brave, Vivaldi, Opera, Chromium, Chrome Canary, Safari Technology Preview (and SeaMonkey, but only for opening bookmarks) Download at Packal here: https://www.packal.org/workflow/search-raindropio View at GitHub here: https://github.com/westerlind/alfred-raindrop-search Changelog 1.5: Many changes: Tags now display in search results, and you can select them to list or search for bookmarks with that tag When adding a new bookmark, you can now set your own title for it, and add one or more tags While adding tags, you can either simply type them out, or select from a list of tags that matches what you have started to type You can add more than one tag by separating them with a comma: tag1, tag2, tag3 If you type out a tag that does not exist yet, it is created when you save the bookmark Hold down the cmd key if you want to save right away when selecting a tag in the list. Just pressing enter leaves the option of adding more tags. If you want to skip the new options while adding a bookmark, hold the cmd key when you select collection or when you set the title, and the options that follow will be skipped and set to default (Title from the webpage, and no tags) When adding bookmarks, the description is now set to what is specified in the webpages meta description tag, if there is one. This means that in most cases you will get the same description for your new bookmark as what is seen as description for that webpage on search engines. If there is no meta description tag, no description is set. In search results, the collection name, tags and domain name of a bookmark is now shown in the subtitle instead of the first words of the description, like before. This is because that is likely more useful in most cases. You can view the description by holding the ctrl key (And there is a setting to change this back if you would want to, see below) There are now settings! You set them by changing Alfred Environment Variables, and there are now two of them for changing what the bookmark subtitles show, and for changing how subcollections are displayed. 1.4.1: Fixed a bug that would make the bookmark adding feature fail in many cases. If that didn't work for you before this, it probably does work now. 1.4: Raindrop.io collections will now also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with a search. 1.3.1: Fixed a bug that made the collection list not loading under certain conditions. For example the first time you tried to add a bookmark. 1.3: Support for adding new bookmarks to Raindrop.io from the currently active browser. 1.2: Added option to have a keyboard shortcut for direct access to the Raindrop.io search, and added the ability to hold the option key while pressing enter to copy the link instead of opening it in a browser (you could already copy the link with cmd+c before, and that is still possible) 1.1: Implemented a proper authentication mechanism, so that this is now handled in a simple to use way that is initiated directly from the workflow if it senses that you are not authenticated yet. 1.0: Uses Raindrop's new public API to make the search inside Alfred, so that you can open the bookmarks right from Alfred without having to ho through the Raindrop.io website first. 0.9: First version. Could only open the Raindrop.io website to view the results of your query, as Raindrop's public API was not released yet

    Snippet Creator

    See for the background. Snippet Creator adapted from https://github.com/derickfay/import-alfred-snippets There are two keywords, both of which result in the creation of a new snippet: sc - (single step) Required fields: name|keyword|content -- separated by | sc2 (multi step) - Enter the snippet text, then you'll be prompted for the keyword / name -- in the interest of speed and simplicity the name is set to the keyword. sc2 also has triggers to pre-population with selected text or clipboard contents set prefsPath in the environment variables to the path to your snippets folder - e.g. "/Users/someuser/Dropbox/Sync/Alfred 4/Alfred.alfredpreferences/snippets/" and newSnippetFolder to your desired target folder The workflow posts a notification on success to remind you of your newly created snippet. https://www.dropbox.com/s/85nc52o241qobvm/snippet creator.alfredworkflow?dl=0 Version 0.2: - updated to use a pipe | as a delimiter instead of a comma, and to remove the requirement to enclose text in quotes Version 0.1: initial

    @alfredpleb Sorry for the delay on that. I haven't released PrefsPlus (yet) ... although I am continuing to use it and it's working well (for me). I'd like to share it. Would you mind testing it out to see if it works for you before I release it widely? I could send you a link via PM.

    Search IMDB

    Because the previously shared workflows for IMDB-integration didn't work anymore I made my own. This is my first publicly shared workflow and this is also my first python-script. Probably things could have been programmed better, but it works for now. So its not really fancy, but I think its workable, as long as IMDB doesn't change the API. Hope this workflow is some use for you all. https://github.com/wotell/alfred-workflow-imdb/blob/master/bin/Search%20IMDB.alfredworkflow

    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/releases/latest

    Safari automatically reads your text messages and asks you to auto-fill any two-factor codes it finds: I don't use Safari (I use Chrome) and I was sick of having to manually type the codes from my messages. This workflow reads your message history and finds the most recent 5, 6, 7, or 8 digit two-factor codes. When you select a code and press <enter> it is copied to your clipboard, or you can press <⌘+enter> and it will copy the code to your clipboard and paste it into the active application.

    @dfay, @vitor & @deanishe - Thanks for taking the time out to help a coding neophyte, like myself. I really appreciate it. Honestly, I can't thank you guys enough. Alfred's great, but it wouldn't be the first thing I'd install on a Mac, if it weren't for you guys and others on the forum. I've learned a ton from you guys! For others who may be struggling with script filters and JSON outputs, I've uploaded a new version of the workflow to use as a learning example: Download Workflow. The workflow combines everyone's suggestions from above: AppleScript, JavaScript & Ruby. All three are nearly identical, with the exception that the JavaScript and Ruby versions lack the prefix "Same Words" in the subtitle. This should be enough to get you started, if you're also struggling to get your head around how script filters' outputs work.

    @akido Type "reload" into Alfred to force the application cache to be refreshed; You're seeing the pre-Catalina and Catalina location for your apps, so reloading will remove any old legacy locations. Cheers, Vero

    Hello everyone, Here is a full collection of themes to embrace macOS Mojave's new Dark and Light themes and their respective accent colors! Each one hase been carefully designed with a pinch of the accent color's hue in each element. I've chosen to respect the low contrast Yellow Accent color shipped by Apple in macOS, despite not being fond of it. It comes in Blue, Purple, Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green & Gray, each with a Dark and Light variant. You can have the color you want, as long as it's not black! There is now a workflow made for this themes collection, which allows you to switch easily between Dark & Light mode, and select your Alfred theme's accent color. Here is a quick demo: TL;DR: How to Install ? You can find all the previews in High Res and link to each theme on Alfred's website on my repo: https://github.com/AlexMartinFR/mojave-alfred-accented-themes Enjoy

    Also, if anyone's considering building a "Reveal in Finder" workflow, I'd very strongly recommend using a model similar to my AppScripts or Safari Assistant workflows. Provide a built-in and a user script directory, and put application-specific scripts in there. When the workflow's run, it should grab the name/bundle ID of the active application, look for a corresponding script in the script directories and run it if found. The potential for requests to add support for apps is basically limitless, so you really want to make it easy for users to add support for apps themselves, and to answer any feature requests to support app XYZ with "Sure. Write the necessary script, submit a PR, and I'll add it to the next release." Otherwise, you're going to be dealing with endless support requests, many of which will be impossible to implement.

    Call qapps and all apps excluding the ones you set in the keep_alive Workflow Environment Variable will quit. The Finder is added to the exclusion list by default, unless you set kill_finder to true. You’ll need to use the exact names of the apps as they present themselves to the system. To prevent multiple from quitting, separate their names with commas. qprocesses will kill all processes, subject to the same keep_alive and kill_finder settings, meaning even things in the background that you don’t see will be asked to quit. Note both options ask the apps to exit (SIGTERM) instead of telling them (SIGKILL). If you need to force processes to terminate, consider ProcessControl instead. Download | Source

    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!

    Wrong shortcut

    Alfred uses Spotlight’s metadata. If you “Get Info” on iTunes, you’ll see it has the following keywords: “Music, Radio, Apple Music, Apple Radio, iTunes Radio, Beats 1, Beats One, B1, iCloud Music Library, Apple Music Connect, My Music”. The “L” in “iCloud Music Library” is the likely culprit.

    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.)

    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:

    @robdbirch Go to Alfred's preferences, under Appearance > Options (bottom left), you can set "Show Alfred on..." and choose from the dropdown menu either default screen, mouse screen or active screen. Set it to your preferred one for the behaviour you'd like Cheers, Vero

    Privacy reassurances?

    It isn't sent anywhere. Alfred needs permission to access things in order to show them to you. Alfred is extremely respectful of its users' privacy. It doesn't even use Google Analytics, Crashlytics or the like, in contrast to many of the applications on Apple's App Stores. Then you will need to install an MitM proxy server so you can inspect exactly what your applications are sending and where. If that's too complicated for you, then you can install Little Snitch, which will at least tell you where your applications are trying to connect to, and allow you to block them. As far as workflows go, almost all of them are written in scripting languages, so you have a copy of the source code right there. For all the others, the source code is typically on GitHub or a similar site. If you don't trust the version the author compiled, you can download the code and compile your own version. Don't install software you don't trust. If you're really paranoid, then keep your sensitive data in encrypted disk images and only mount them when you need to access the data. Quit any programs you don't trust (which you shouldn't have installed anyway) before mounting them.

    Done. Download at the same URL. This is a useful Workflow, I might clean it up and release properly (with icon, README, and all that) later on. No promises (busy week), but I’ll try to comment here if I do.

    Search Apple/iCloud Notes

    Version 2.0.0 released! The workflow now runs on python 3 and lets you copy note bodies with cmd+enter and search note bodies with a new keyword. Other minor changes: include version number, drop confusing .app.alfredworkflow extension, add please wait subtext. I don't think it's possible to have text indicating that no result was found.
