  1. 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.

  2. It hasn't changed. In fact, I'm pretty sure that Finder decides whether the file is moved or copied, not Alfred. In any case, Finder's/Alfred's default behaviour is to move the file if the destination is on the same partition, but to copy across partitions.

  3. All your stuff is in the Alfred.alfredpreferences bundle. If you’ve set a sync folder, and there’s an Alfred.alfredpreferences bundle in there, Alfred uses that. Otherwise it uses the default location ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences (Alfred 4+). So all you need to do is move your Alfred.alfredpreferences bundle to the default location and Alfred will use it.

    File search question

    I think you will need a workflow. That toggle for Calendar is for ICS files, which as with Mail, Apple no longer really makes available. IIRC, Calendar only exports ICS files for local calendars. Everything else is locked up in a database Alfred can't read. You're looking at the File Search settings. They only apply to contact or calendar or bookmark files. That is, .vcf, .ics or .webloc/.url files. The search does not include your Calendar.app or Contacts.app databases or Safari's bookmarks. If you want to search your Contacts.app database, turn

  6. Fair point, I'm gonna have a bit of a play with this to see what's possible without it feeling janky

  7. @drwatson Here are a few scenarios where clipboard may merge when it shouldn't: Another clipboard modifying app running concurrently Using an app that has its own clipboard feature (e.g. iTerm) Using a keyboard modifier app that may be triggering keys in the background Non-Apple third-party keyboard (I recall a Logitech keyboard that was triggering extra keys) Take a look at whether it's happening only in one app, or in any app (TextEdit is the ideal testing app as it's such a simple native one) Cheers, Vero

  8. Find and watch movies or shows instantly My workflow makes it really easy to quickly search for a movie or tv show, find the different services streaming the content, and go right to the content. Learn more here! https://github.com/dverb20/watch_now_workflow/releases/tag/v1.0 I promise it works much more quickly than the gif shows! I'd love some feedback or for someone to put in a PR for improvements

  9. We’ve all been through it! The quintessential example is forgetting a semi-colon, though I doubt that particular example happens much with the checks we have today.

  10. 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

  11. Generally speaking, no, you can't tell Alfred to use a different browser to your default one. Neither globally nor for specific features. You can specify a different browser in a workflow, so if there are just a few you want to open in Brave, you could recreate them in a workflow (it's only a Keyword plus an Open URL). Choosy might also be worth a look. You can set that as your default browser and have it send URLs to any browser you like according to your own rules.

  12. @seishonagon No plans to officially add alphabetical sort. But you can make a new Script Filter with language set to /usr/bin/ruby and paste the following: require 'json' require 'pathname' script_filter_items = Pathname.new(ENV['downloads_dir']).expand_path.children.sort.each_with_object([]) do |entry, array| name = if entry.directory? entry.basename.to_path else entry.basename(entry.extname).to_path end array.push( type: 'file', title: name, subtitle: entry, icon: { path: entry, type: 'fileicon' }, arg: entry ) end puts({ items:

  14. Hi, Everyone. I want to share a workflow which I create. Safari extension like wallabagger does not exist. This workflow is for this. github repo https://github.com/kbc8894/alfred-wallabag-workflow download worklfow https://github.com/kbc8894/alfred-wallabag-workflow/releases/download/v0.1/Save.page.to.wallabag.alfredworkflow

  15. FWIW, this could be shortened to: query = sys.argv[1].strip() if len(sys.argv) > 1 else '' Or a bit more verbosely: query = '' if len(sys.argv) > 1: query = sys.argv[1].strip()

  16. Can checkout https://github.com/lilyball/alfred-rs and https://github.com/spamwax/alfred-workflow before writing a new alfred library in Rust.

  17. It's standard POSIX APIs, with Alfred understanding a bit of JSON on STDOUT. See "Advanced workflow topics" at the bottom of this page.

    About This Mac

    It's basically an image-manipulation library for AppleScript. It's how the workflow makes the icon for your Mac.

  19. This would be so good! That user base data can be misleading though. I'm included in that 95% as a Safari user, but that's only because this feature doesn't exist for Brave. Opening bookmarks is a huge part of how I use Alfred, so it's a major deciding factor in which browser I actually use. When it boils down to how I begin accessing the browser, it's either through Google Search or my rediculously large collection of bookmarks, and every now and then a link in an email. 🤷‍♂️ If the feature does get implemented, I'd close Safari immediately and change my default to B

  20. That's fully understandable :-) Perhaps you should edit the thread title to say it's deprecated now.
