    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.

  9. Hi, I sometimes forget the keyword for a snippet, but when I search for it with the snippet keyword (default is "snippet" I think), it only shows the snippet in a one-liner, not the keyword, so I never learn the keyword unless I look it up in Alfred Preferences or invoke the Snippet Viewer Hotkey. I'd love to be able to see the snippet keyword if I held in e.g. ⌘ key. PS: This is largely resolved by using the "Snippet Viewer Hotkey" instead of "Snippet Keyword", but I'd be nice to have both places.

  11. 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.

  15. I have 12,000 + Evernote notes, a few of which I access multiple times a day. I was looking for a quick way to access those notes in Evernote desktop and configure Alfred to do so. In Evernote, I right click on the note in the notes list → in the context menu you see Copy Note Link - do NOT choose that option. Instead press the option key and a new menu item will appear called Copy Classic Note Link → click on Copy Classic Note Link → go to Alfred → Features → Web Search → new custom search → paste the link as the URL, assign title and keyword, etc. If you

  17. 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.

  21. As a new Alfred user I've installed the workflow ZipInfo, which lead to a security warning by macOS. So, I've created my own one to be able to take a look into a ZIP archive without installing any other app. In contrast to the other workflow, I simply use the system's zipinfo terminal command. alfred-zipinfo GitHub: https://github.com/IOIO72/alfred-zipinfo Packal: https://www.packal.org/workflow/alfred-zipinfo No special requirements.

  22. 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

  23. 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

    A simple RPN calculator that works like the built-in calculator. Requires spaces as delimiters between elements in the expression. Built using deanishe's Alfred python library. e.g. 19 2.14 + 4.5 2 4.3 / - * produces an Alfred result: 85.2974418605 Action this item to copy this number to the clipboard There is a single keyword: rpn Download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ay1z2mubifcun6/RPN Calculator.alfredworkflow?dl=0 2018-07-10: updated with working link 2020-07-26 upda

    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.

    Run macOS Services

    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.

  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.

  30. Looks like quite a powerful workflow. Nice work. Put the source code (i.e. the contents of the workflow folder) in the GitHub repo and the exported workflow in GitHub releases. It can be a good idea to keep the workflow/source code in a subdirectory of the repo root. That way, you can symlink it to your workflows folder in Alfred without putting the .git directory in Dropbox/iCloud. Be sure to point out that the workflow is Catalina-only (other versions of macOS don't have Python 3).

  34. The {} JSON configuration utility object is a very advanced workflow object which allows you to have full control over the data and configuration of a workflow. In this case, the result from File Filter 1 passes a folder to the JSON Config util, which then dynamically configures File Filter 2 to use that folder as part of its configuration, specifically, the Search Scope configuration. Here is the help page for the JSON configuration: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/utilities/json/

  36. @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

  38. Possibly. If you mean the Command key (macOS doesn't have a Meta key), then yes, I believe Alfred won't let you use ⌘X because that's the global standard hotkey for "Cut". Doubtful. It's a big foot-gun. Alfred tries hard to avoid foot-guns.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  43. @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

    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

  45. Ok, if I understand correctly, you want to be able to find a phrase like "wet weather" but not a file that happens to contain "wet" and "weather" as separate words. To do this, create a simple workflow with a "file filter" input attached to an "open file" action. Double-click your file filter and give it a name and keyword, then go to the Advanced tab. Click the + and add the kMDItemTextContent and uncheck the "split" box. Remove the other fields from the list. This will be a file filter that exclusively searches content of your files (not the file names) and specifically searches for

  46. Reloading the Alfred app cache did the trick! Thanks.

  47. Have you tried reloading the Alfred app cache? Check out the Advanced tab in Alfred's preferences to clear the cache. You could also try dragging the Applications folder in the Privacy section, waiting a moment, and then pulling it back out. That ill cause OSX to reindex the Applications folder.

  48. 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.
