    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.

    Searchio! workflow for Alfred Auto-suggest search results from multiple search engines and languages. There are a few existing workflows that provide auto-suggest results from one or the other search engine, but this includes not only multiple search engines, but also allows you to specify multiple languages/regions for your results. Supports the following search engines/websites: Google Google Images Google Maps YouTube Wikipedia Wiktionary Amazon eBay DuckDuckGo Bing Yahoo! Ask.com Yandex.ru Naver.com Wikia.com Download and installation Download the latest version from the GitHub releases page or Packal. Usage There are several searches pre-configured. Only some have keywords (i.e. can be used as-is): g — Search Google in system (i.e. default) language m — Search Google Maps in system (i.e. default) language gi — Search Google Images in system (i.e. default) language w — Search Wikipedia in system (i.e. default) language wn — Search Wiktionary in system (i.e. default) language a — Search Amazon in system (i.e. default) language. If your system language is English, this will search Amazon.com. Use -l uk in the Script Filter to search Amazon.co.uk or -l ca to search Amazon.ca. yt — Search YouTube in system (i.e. default) language searchio [<query>] — Show settings and list of supported search engines. Currently, the only setting is a toggle to also show the <query> in the results list (default: No). searchiohelp — Open help file in your browser You can add a keyword to (and edit) one of the existing examples or add your own searches. For details on how to do that, see the GitHub page. Licensing, thanks The code in this workflow is released under the MIT Licence. The icons belong to the respective search engines. This workflow uses the Alfred-Workflow library and docopt (both MIT-licensed).

    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!

    Oh and btw, I prefer that google opens the photo in satelite mode to fix this I edit this line in the bash script part of your workflow: and made it: now it opens the photo in satelite mode. It took me a while to figure that one out

    Over JSON, definitely. I kinda like TOML, though. I tend to use that instead of YAML these days, but I'm not entirely sure why. Probably because it's less "magic", and it's more popular in the Go ecosystem, where I tend to be these days. Perhaps I'm just a mindless conformist… Okay. I'm sold. Especially if you're the maintainer. Apple's macOS documentation is appalling. Either woefully out-of-date, next-to-useless, or—most often—both. You should check out Qt. It's a fantastic GUI library, has bindings for loads of languages, and the docs are absolutely wonderful. In the past, I mostly used wxWindows (via wxPython), but I decided to try Qt for a super-simple app to upload torrents/NZBs a few years ago. And then I re-wrote it in Cocoa last year. Thanks to the awful and wonderful documentation for Cocoa and Qt respectively, it took me longer to figure out how to get drag-and-drop to work in Cocoa than it did to write the entire Qt app. It's true, and I don't really understand why. I get why someone would do it just to see if it could be done. But not why someone would—in all earnest—decide to build something like Electron. It's offensive at every level. A dodgy language on a platform designed for handling as many web requests as possible, bundled with its own, non-shared copy of an entire browser known to be a resource hog. It's the software equivalent of Naked Came the Stranger.

    @Jasondm007 oh, thank you sir! It's a bit tricky, I tried addressing it a few times, but the implementation always was hella unstable, so I gave up trying (for now). I hope, when I have some free time I will get to it, it's the biggest limitation so far. The messages like yours are very encouraging, thank you for that! :)

    Searching Notes in Alfred

    I used the workflow @deanishe linked above but switched to a different solution all together for all my note taking. Now I just write all my notes as markdown files in Sublime Text. I put all the notes in one directory called knowledge that I put in Dropbox for syncing. And I can open any file in this directory with Alfred scoped to the path where the directory lies. I made a workflow for it too. On iOS, I use Ulysses app to edit the notes as Ulysses can consume directories of markdown files that are stored on Dropbox. The bonus point of it all is that I can then render all these markdown files to the web with GitBook so anyone can read them. If you want to keep private notes in this setup, I would create a directory in the main repo and git ignore it so it won't be pushed online for all to see. This setup works for me and I am super happy with it. Maybe you like it too. I am just not fond of keeping all my notes in a database that only Notes or Bear or any one app can read. Markdown files are super portable. Oh and Sublime Text has vim mode which neither Notes nor Bear nor Ulysses have.

    EggTimer v2 [updated to 2.0 final]

    @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.)

    Apple Music workflow with Love

    create a trigger that connects to the following applescript: tell application "iTunes" set loved of current track to true end tell This didn't used to work with Apple Music, but it does now. Adding an Apple Music track throws up error "iTunes got an error: current track doesn’t understand the “add” message." number -1708 from current track So that's not easily possible at the moment.
