    Menu Search

    The previously released menu search workflow has been universally panned due to the poor performance of the AppleScript that dumps menu contents. The caching of results worked very poorly as a stop-gap. So, I've re-written the menu extraction in Objective-C. It's much faster. The source is here: https://github.com/ctwise/alfred-workflows You can download the workflow directly from http://tedwi.se/u/db To recap, this workflow lets you trigger an application's menu's from Alfred. For example, if you're in iTerm and trigger Alfred, you can type 'm view' to get a list of all menu items wit

    Reminders

    This creates a new reminder in Reminders.app Download the latest version, for Alfred v3+ and macOS 10.12+ For older versions, go here. Usage To use, just type r <some text> into Alfred. For example, r check out some of Alfred's other workflows will create a new reminder called "check out some of Alfred's other workflows". You can also include times and dates in the text and have Alfred set a reminder for that particular time. r this will capture the current application and turn it into a reminder. r help will show some built-in examples.

  6. Note from Andrew: While this is a convenient method for updating workflows, I cannot endorse the use of it unless you are fully aware of the security implications of blanket updating all of your workflows. I'm currently working on a built in workflow auto-updater, for a future Alfred 2 release, that performs the standard verification checks that Alfred currently does on manual import, along with migrating your hotkey/keyword settings on upgrading. I'll also be adding 3rd party workflow developer signatures to keep you safe. Hey all, I've just completed a workflow designed to make it easie

And now it's ready for whoever would like to to have a playaround with it and see what they think: EggTimer v2.0 It will also be available at Tom's Alfred Repo, but I personally haven't had a chance to test that yet, so let me know how it goes for you.

Colors v2.0.0 Get it from Packal (Recommended) Quick Summary: This workflow can process and convert all CSS color formats and several Objective-C formats, namely NSColor (calibrated and device) and UIColor. It also provides an interface to the OS X color panel for easier color manipulations. It's written in native code (i.e. it's really fast). Quick Preview: You can find a full description on Packal.

  11. A better unit converter Download V0.6 contact thijs@designandsuch.com for questions, bugs, ideas and such try out the demo There are more unit converters available. but i didn't like the lack of speed due to the feeds. Thus i redid one myself which calculates everything on your mac. It fetches new currency data once in a while.. that's the only time when a second delay might appear. And in my humble opinion it's already better than all other unit converters around. I might add more units in the future

    Pinboard Search Workflow

    Hi, I just created an alternative Pinboard workflow that allows searching for pinboard bookmarks within Alfred. It can fetch data asynchronously, so there should not be delays during searches and the matching code has some fuzzy logic. Might come in handy for Pinboard users so I wanted to share. NOTE: It requires Node.JS to be installed. Please get it from http://nodejs.org if you dont have Node. Keywords: pinboardauth username:TOKEN <- set access token (get it from https://pinboard.in/settings/password) pb query <- search for query pbunread <- items in read later

  22. I'm happy to announce that after months of development, I'm ready to make a new workflow and theme repository available to the public as an open beta: Packal. Workflows and themes are taggable and searchable. You can add in the icons, screenshots, long descriptions, and brief ones. There are many different ways to find whatever you need there. Since this is an initial announcement, there isn't much content there yet, except for the workflows and themes that a few kind testers uploaded. Themes are stored as a simple application URL, which means there are no files to download, but, instead,

  25. NOTE: This workflow has not been updated to work with Alfred 3.0 and above, and is known to cause issues. Use at your own risk. ---- Keep all the miscellaneous crap off your Desktop by sweeping everything into a "DeskDrawer" folder, which is easily accessible from our good friend Alfred. Download DeskDrawer v1.5 [updated 25 March 2014] Okay, the idea is not completely original — I've used apps like DesktopTidy and Unclutter to achieve this, but it's amazing how simple it is to replicate the basic concept with an Alfred workflow.

    (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.

  31. UPDATE by Vero (Alfred's mum): The AlfPT site was a pilot project for an installer/updater by Tom Hunt and is no longer available. AlfPT was a wonderful idea by an Alfred user, Tom Hunt, to create a way for workflows to be updated and gathered in one place. However, Tom has decided to take the project offline (due to school/work commitments and the bandwidth requirements of that project). As such, documentation in this thread is now outdated. Here's what's coming soon: - Other users are working on their own repositories for workflows - We are working on an official v2 Extras site,

    Notes

    This just creates a new note in notes.app. To keep it simple, it just uses the first folder in the first account it finds. You can change this behaviour by editing providing the respective names in the "properties" in the applescript. Usage To search existing notes, type "n search_term" into Alfred. E.g. "n something I wrote yesterday" (not working in macOS High Sierra) To create a new note, just type "n note_text" into Alfred. E.g.

    The Minimalist

    Big update, cleaning out all the old stuff! Lots of wonderful minimal themes on here, but I think this is the minimalist. Minimalist details: We only show the path for the selected item (which is basically how you read these details anyway) That also makes it easy to see which item is selected so we don't need a highlight! Keyboard shortcuts for matches (e.g. "⌘4") are harder to use than just up/down+enter, so I hid those Uses the light weight of the system font (San Francisco) for that native, readable feel Looks best with a medium amount

Then it will compile all of them into a Markdown file, and then show that file in a Quicklook window. Yes! Screenshot is below. Gi

    Menu bar search

    Hi, I've created a basic workflow that searches the system's menu bar. After having used Sublime Text's command palette I wanted to have a similar system-wide functionality. EDIT: For people that haven't worked with Sublime Text's command palette: the command palette allows you to fuzzy search the entire application menu by keyboard. This saves both time on hunting down the right menu and saves you having to remember all sorts of keyboard shortcuts. For a brief introduction on Sublime Text's command palette see https://tutsplus.com/lesson/the-command-palette/ EDIT: Better use ctwise's

Example: ruby script.rb "{query}" 2> error.log All errors will then be logged to error.log in your workflow's folder. Or if you want all output logged (perhaps so you can view the xml from a script filter), you could use tee: ruby script.rb "{query}" 2>&1 | tee output.log That'll log errors from stderr in addition to standard output. Note that PHP doesn't output to stderr, so if you're using PHP you'll have to check
