    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. @chris have you considered creating a workflow of multiple Keyword Input -> Open URL Action object pairs instead of using the Custom Web Search feature? This is essentially what built-in custom web searches are doing under the hood. If you set a bundle id on the workflow, then sharing a new version of your workflow with added or altered urls will update the currently installed workflow and also maintain any keywords people have altered within the workflow. Using this method will also retain the image you've set for the custom searches. Side note: In the O

  12. Have you tried https://github.com/nikitavoloboev/alfred-web-searches I will try to push an update for support of truly custom searches. But the idea behind the workflow is that is that it searches over a list of searches defined here (https://github.com/nikitavoloboev/alfred-web-searches/blob/master/workflow/websites.csv) As example, here is a line in the csv file ` Pinboard,https://pinboard.in/search/?query={query}&all=Search+All ` Then you search for Pinboard in workflow And on return you start typing query, that query will be w

  13. Control SandwichTimer from Alfred, to run pomodoros and timers. If you don’t have the app installed, invoke :sandwichtimerupdateapp to get the latest version. See the linked page for screenshots of the app in action. Call pomo or set a keyboard shortcut to start a pomodoro timer. If another is already running, it’ll be aborted. timer will let you set as many timers as you want, for the specified amount of time. Text after the number of minutes will be used as the timer’s title. With both options, actioning with ⌥ will quit all instances of the SandwichTimer app. Dow

  14. 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.

  17. I wouldn't give someone grief for asking a noob question. Only for asking it over and over again. AFAIK, Niki is the only regular poster who has. But we do have some alumni who'd never coded in their lives before they wrote an Alfred workflow and are now professional developers.

  18. 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.

  19. OneUpdater doesn't care how you structure your repos (Vítor keeps all his workflow in one repo), or even if the workflow is in a repo. My updaters require one workflow per repo and the use of releases. (Except the metadata.json-based one in the Go library.) Your repo structure looks absolutely fine and should work with OneUpdater no problem.

  20. I’m a newbie to both Alfred development and GitHub version control. I built a new Alfred workflow called Sequential Strings Creator published on Github. I read some documents such as "Exporting and Sharing Workflows” but still confuse about the mechanism of shared release. That is, how should I release the next version so that other Alfred users can get it via the bundle ID? I plan to release the next version by the following steps: Clone the repo from Github remote to local Modify the files and fix the bugs Push the n

  22. 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

  23. @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.

  24. What do you mean? The topic is still there and people can still respond. Why do you say it was “closed”? I believe you misunderstood. @deanishe suggested a workaround to your problem, he didn’t say that you should abandon Typinator altogether (more likely that you could switch over the problematic snippets) and definitely did not indicate that every user should do it. He himself uses and recommends different automation tools for different tasks, according to their strengths. I think that in general this post is good, and it’s useful that it exists so others wi

  28. 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?

  29. Getting the Escaping options right for {query} is difficult for anyone, tbh. That's why argv was added. {query} can’t be removed for backwards-compatibility reasons, unfortunately.

  30. You can. Like I told you elsewhere, add a List Filter to choose which transformation you want. If you want to use a keyword to trigger a workflow that works on the current selection, you need to copy the current selection yourself. Alfred can only pass you the current selection if you use a Hotkey.

  32. I can’t get it to work even as standalone, your regex is incorrect (why are there § characters there?). Everything else seems set up correctly. Try it with something simpler first, multi-line regexes are harder to get right.

  34. 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

  35. So you're not trying to enter the query into a app's search box, you're trying to enter it into a webpage's search box. These are very different things. The simplest way to do that would be to write an AppleScript that activates an existing dict.cc tab in Chrome (or creates a new one if none exists), then opens the new search URL in that tab. That would solve your problem of having 50 dict.cc tabs open. Personally, I leave the tabs open because I often want to come back to the last two or three. So I wrote a script that closes all tabs whose domain = linguee.de and run

  36. Forget about that for now. Upload your own workflow that isn't working somewhere (Dropbox?) and post a link to it, so we can have a look and tell you what's wrong. A File Filter does recognise any word in the filename by default, so your workflow is simply misconfigured.

  38. 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.

  40. All this rhetoric is totally unnecessary as there are no problems in the App and it works beautifully. However, all of this can be dispelled with a simple answer of whether we can expect an update in 6 months, 1 year, 2 years etc..... Just a rough guideline since there has been no feedback on this for a very long time - over a year now. As I have stated in the past, I would like to see a new updated version for the iPhone with the latest iOS features but understand that Andrew has to allocate his time appropriately. I personally am willing to pay for such an update.

  41. 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.

  46. Inspired by Zach Lieberman, I’d like to try open office hours. I’ve never hosted or participated in any, so it’ll be a learning experience for me as well. The goal is discussing Alfred (or anything you want, really). I’m not an extraordinary developer, but I do have extensive experience with Alfred and coming up with solutions to make workflows do what we need. We may or may not talk code, but time would likely be better spent discussing how to make your ideas fit a Workflow.

    Holy wow, Alfred is insane. Also I did it. ?? Here you can find the latest download with the workflow. With OneUpdater finally working. Hope not to do silly silly mistakes like this again. In all honestly though, even though this workflow has quite a few personal things that you don't care for. There is some that I think all can use and love. Books, courses, websites, research papers. There is a lot there and is all super fast. Take a look and see if you like it. ? Also the little parser I use to convert the markdowns I get from MindNode to Alfred JSON is a
