  1. @Chris Messina this is indeed a UI issue, however minor, as the underlying feature works as expected (all URLs are routed via macOS). Alfred should really dynamically be showing the correct default handler if possible. Taking suggestions from this thread (thanks for the relevant input), I've updated Alfred to show "Open With" instead of "Browser", and the default handler will automatically update as you type, for example: This should be in the 4.3.2 pre-release in the next few days. Cheers, Andrew

  3. I guess they were referrring to So storing both the encrypted data and the en-/decryption key in the same unprotected storage ("plainly on disk") is indeed a horrible idea. Storing it in a place that is potentially vulnerable to direct access via malicious websites in case the browser itself is attackable via a browser vulnerability is another issue. The latter is the reason why it is generally not the best idea to use a browser's own password management feature.

  4. Doesn't matter, I'm afraid. People will still add too many workflows and they will still add slow workflows, and then they'll write Vero an email asking why it doesn't work. I'm sorry, there isn't really a balance to be struck. For a feature to be considered, the risk of misuse or misbehaviour must be basically zero. The Alfred team just doesn't have the capacity to be fielding an extra bunch of support requests, and you can't make trade-offs when you've nothing to trade with.

  5. I use Brave rather than Safari or Chrome, but the "Web Bookmarks" feature doesn't find my Brave Bookmarks. Configuration: macOS Sierra 10.12.6 Brave Version 0.59.35 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit) Web Bookmarks Feature is Configured as follows: Sources: "Google Chrome Bookmarks" Show Bookmarks "via keyword" = "bm" Open Bookmarks "in macOS default browser" If I add a bookmark to brave and search for it using "bm" it is not found. If I add the same bookmark to Chrome, it works fine.

  6. Hi, @faltoo, welcome to the forum. That's exactly why it's at the top. If you enter "pu" and select your "Show pull requests" action a few times, you'll retrain Alfred to put that first. You can tell Alfred to ignore AirPort Utility completely by adding the comment alfred:ignore to it (do a Get Info on the app in Finder). You can also reset Alfred’s “knowledge” in Alfred Preferences > Advanced > Clear Knowledge, but you’ll likely also lose a lot of training you’d rather keep. More generally, it's not a good idea to blindly action things in Al

  8. Yes! This is exactly what I was suggesting — it's both more accurate and doesn't obtrusively get in the way of the default/majority case: Thanks for hearing me out and considering this discussion and moving quickly on an implemented solution, @Andrew! And thank you @Mr Pennyworth for summarizing the different perspectives and moving the core conversation forward which, in my view, resulted in a better Alfred for everyone. 😅

  9. @peegeebee If by workflow, you're referring to the default web search for Google Translate, the URL structure was changed by Google a couple of days ago. If you update to the Alfred 4.3.2 pre-release (by going to the Update tab, choosing "pre-releases" from the dropdown menu at the bottom and updating), you'll see that this URL has already been updated to reflect Google's change Cheers, Vero

  10. I love this discussion minus the part where @Chris Messina felt unwelcome. From my limited interactions with @deanishe and @vitor I feel damn confident that no one on this thread means to attack / argue in bad faith with anyone. MacOS settings: I don't agree with the thesis that Apple's "Default Web Browser" setting is misleading or incomplete. "Web" implies http(s), no? I don't see any ambiguity there. Apple is saying "choose an app to open http(s) urls". It is just that for all other URL schemes, Apple hasn't provided a UI. But whatever UI is present, it is precise, and comp

  11. I’d say the issue might be the amount of back and forth. There are three Alfred veterans trying to help on this thread (and in your others, there were multiple as well). In general, one of us is enough and the others move on to help someone else or only make a small comment for completeness. But since you continue to argue back (not a criticism), the others will try to further clarify the points already made and fill any gaps, which makes it so you have more people to respond to (while we still only have one each—you). Yes, but to be honest the example answer you gave is

  14. List the contents of a directory and act on them. Call the workflow with rdn to sort from the most recently modified, rdo for the reverse; rda to sort from the most recently added, rdz for the reverse. To act on the selections, use the standard Alfred shortcuts. You can activate file actions, dive into directories, preview files, add them to the file buffer — whatever you want to do that is supported by Alfred. ⌥↵ opens the selection in Finder, while ⇧↵ clears the cache for rda and rdz. By default the Workflow looks in ~/Downloads. Change the value in th

  15. If I have this snippet: If I do a search like: Nothing gets matched because Alfred only searches over snippet titles. In typinator the quick search includes both titles & content which makes it much nicer to use. It would be awesome if Alfred Snippets could support this kind of search. Probably as a separate search (perhaps there are users who only want to match on titles). Thank you.

  16. Thanks for the feedback, I sometimes add options into workflows first to see how well they are received, and how well they work. I already have a note to bring this same option from the Browse in Alfred to the default navigation options, but at this point, it will likely remain a simple checkbox to keep this complexity of understanding this feature low.

  17. 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

    Clipboard doesn't copy.

    Afraid not. It's a deliberate design choice to not store all clipboard data. Yeah. It's a very opinionated design, so it won't suit a lot of people's needs. Took me years to find a clipboard history manager I like. I run Alfred's clipboard history, too, though, because it can do some really nifty tricks that other apps can't, like "append to clipboard" or Vítor's workflow that let's you paste the last N clipboard items all at once.

    file search

    @Alan He The word "file" starts at a word boundary, so it's a relevant result. Beyond that, Alfred uses a bunch of other factors, such as your knowledge (files you've opened before), so if you open the "typings" file a few times, Alfred will learn you're keener to have that file come up in the results at the top for that search term Cheers, Vero

  30. I got curious when the latest 4.3.2 release notes said there was a spelling mistake in the "clipboard" preferences, so I got bored and played "spot the mistake" and ended up actually finding a different spelling error. I think the below text in the "advanced" section is meant to say "if it has been".

  32. This is what I mean: There is no limitation. craftdocs:// would have Just Worked if you'd left it set to "Default Browser". You considered the UI, formed an incorrect mental model about the way it works, and then came to post a feature request for the way it already works. That's not unusual, but it is the first time it's happened for this feature. People have been putting non-HTTP URIs in that box for a decade without apparent confusion, which suggests to me that—even if it is technically incorrect—the dialog fits most people's mental model of "opening URLs o

  33. On behalf of the thousands of UI designers upon whom the world depends, I take umbrage with characterizing UI design as the least of the world's software design problems. But I will otherwise ignore it because it is irrelevant to my original point, which was about the "truth" in the interface, which you seem willing to accept as a "lie" for "practical" reasons, which is your wont to do. I prefer to stay stuck in my theoretical bubble if it allows me to pursue increasing honest or accuracy with the users of software that I design or contribute to.

  34. Seems to me that what you’re pointing out is that Apple’s UI isn’t accurate. That “Default web browser” is the same thing. Alfred can follow macOS’ example or deviate from it. Considering this is the first time I recall this being an issue on these forums, it seems that not deviating has worked out fine, and changing that to another option not used anywhere else is opening the door to confusion. You should consider mentioning it to Apple via Feedback Assistant. If they change it, I’d see a bigger argument for Alfred to follow. But I don’t think they will, an

  37. @kimillian Do you need to see the output in Alfred? Or just results in any way? Because you can easily make a web search workflow with the keyword "daystoday" and a web search that opens Google with "how many days since {query}". That way you can enter your date in any format, as Google accepts "20200103", "3rd Jan 2020", "last Friday", or any particular event like "Christmas", etc. In fact, you could duplicate that set of objects and create another one looking ahead "how many days until..." You can grab the workflow here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/66

  38. You misunderstand: "Default Browser" means "default application for the given URL scheme". Alfred just passes the URL to macOS to open. The URL is only sent to a specific application if you choose a specific application. It’s functionally equivalent to calling /usr/bin/open "scheme://blah" vs /usr/bin/open "scheme://blah" -a SomeApplication and already works the way you describe.

  44. I was troubleshooting hotkeys today and realized you can type ?hotkey into Alfred to query for hotkey triggers. Neat. BUT, the filtering seems to be based on the Title and Subtitle only (they hotkey itself is not included) so e.g. this won't work: Is it possible to query using ?hotkey for the key itself (maybe a feature request...)

  47. 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. C

  48. Welcome @Lachero, It is, the same way you’d do it in a shell. Call it in a Run Script Action and you’re mostly done. Alfred doesn’t consider your shell’s environment, which means it will have no idea of the node installation. Before you call the script, you’ll need to set PATH to include wherever node is installed, or it may suffice to call it with node’s full path (e.g. /usr/local/bin/node your-script.js). Alfred will wait just like your shell would (or not). You’ll capture the output much in the same way you’d do it there, and whatever you pass fro
