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. Now, it's very much a beta, as there's several things that don't work as well as I'd like yet, but I'm pretty pleased with how the integration with Alfred 2's new live results feedback via the Script

  8. 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

  15. 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,

  16. 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.

Both will present you with two download options, if available: the URL of your frontmost browser tab, and the URL in your clipboard. Run any option with the ⌘ modifier, and the full playlist will be downloaded. Use ⌥ and it will toggle adding to WatchList (a separate Workflow). Notifications will appear on download start and end.

    (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. Alfred must be included in the list of apps allowed to control your computer. This step is requir

    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

    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

  30. Transmit 4 Workflow for Alfred app Workflow for searching and opening Favorites in Transmit 4 App. It's really fast, because it reads the SQLite Database or XML datasource in latests releases of Transmit 4. There are already at least 2 Transmit workflows, but one is incompatible with latests Transmit 4 and the other, although very good, uses AppleScript to do the searching, and thus you need to wait for Transmit to open to get feedback. This is particulary slow on non SSD machines. Usage Type the keyword (default ftp) and start typing the name of the favorite to search; dead simple. Insta
