  1. Instant Fuzzy File Search: Download List all the files inside a folder using fd, and instantly fuzzy-search through all of them using fzf, all from inside Alfred with a single keyword: fzf. Screenshots Invoke with fzf Search through tens of thousands of files Fuzzy search shows most relevant results There's a folder action too! Search even inside apps Manually create folder-specific keywords Alternative and comparison Fuzzy Folders is another fuzzy search workflow that is more configurable and customizable. Instant Fuzzy File Search doesn’t have any plans to match all the features supported by Fuzzy Folders. Neither does it aim to be as easy to customize. Take a look at the table below for a quick comparison between the two.

    Hotkey support

    I've just added in a ⇧⌘F shortcut in preferences which will highlight the Workflows filter field. I've actually made this global within the preferences too, so if you're not in the workflow tab, the shortcut will switch to the workflows tab, then focus the field. This will be in the next release.

    We agree. And holy shit, I actually implemented it myself this time!! 🏆😁

  4. Here's a Custom Web Search. Paste this URL into Alfred: alfred://customsearch/Search%20Lane%E2%80%99s%20Lexicon%20for%20%E2%80%9C%7Bquery%7D%E2%80%9D/la/utf8/nospace/http%3A%2F%2Farabiclexicon.hawramani.com%2Fsearch%2F%7Bquery%7D%3Fcat%3D50 alfred://customsearch/Search%20Arabic%20Lexicon%20for%20%E2%80%9C%7Bquery%7D%E2%80%9D/al/utf8/nospace/http%3A%2F%2Farabiclexicon.hawramani.com%2F%3Fs%3D%7Bquery%7D Not with a mouse, no. You could create a Hotkey that searches for the currently-selected text, though. Create a workflow with a Hotkey with Argument = Selection in macOS, then connect that to an Open URL Action. For the URL, open one of the Custom Web Searches above, and copy its Search URL into the Open URL action.

  5. Alfred (as of 4.3) actually has a new internal URL parser which, on quickly checking, actually handles this specific scenario correctly. This URL parser is used in most places throughout Alfred, but currently not in Custom Searches and the workflow Open URL Action, as I want it to be fully tested and verified before potentially causing a regression for a highly used "working" feature in Alfred. URL parsing is in fact an extremely complex task to do correctly, as there are a number of assumptions which have to be made, which is why Apple's own APIs don't do it automatically. Alfred's parser splits the URL string into the relevant components, then uses Apple's NSURLComponents to construct and encode the URL. Just as a purely "as interest" note, here is a screenshot of the internal testing tool I created to Alfred's [future] URL parser to make it easy to see that URLs were being split and parsed correctly: Cheers, Andrew

    Hotkey support

    I think hotkey should enhance, because it improve productivity. When active on any workflow and hotkey- ⌘ F, cursor should move to Filter input. Besides, ⌘ 1-6 change tab is perfect if support it.

    Hotkey support

    If you weren't aware - if you are already focused on the workflow list, you can just start typing to filter that list. The focus will automatically go up to the search field.

    Hotkey support

    I totally agree with that. It’s ⌘F focussing a different field dependent on context in the same view that I think is somewhat questionable. It should be a different shortcut, imo, say ⇧⌘F.

  10. Sorry, I don't know then. I have no idea how Alfred works internally, and I don't have macOS 11. Perhaps @Andrew can shed some light.

    Thank you so much for this workflow. This is an amazing workflow that has added an extra layer to my Zettlekasten workflow. I edited the workflow so it works with Zettlr shared your link on the Zettlr reddit page.

  13. Hi @NorahMaria, welcome to the forum. You can use a Run Script action in Alfred basically like a command line. Set language to /bin/zsh and just put your command in there. Perhaps something like: # input passed in from previous action, e.g. Keyword name="$1" # path of new directory to create newdir="${HOME}/Codes/${name}" # create directory mkdir -p "${newdir}" # open new directory in VS Code /usr/bin/open -a "Visual Studio Code" "${newdir}" Use a Keyword input to enter the name of the new directory and connect it to the above Run Script action.

  14. Not that I recall. Perhaps the Workflow transition from Alfred 1 to Alfred 2? Every case I remember is either a deprecation (i.e. it still works it just doesn’t get any more updates) replaced by something better or an outright change with no toggle back (though again, I’m uncertain). But the point here is different. The toggle would be a change in one place which would break a different feature and only sometimes. That would be a recipe for bug reports. To be clear, the argument as I’m making it is not necessarily that a toggle shouldn’t be added, but that doing just that would be insufficient. The solution should either be something difference or it needs some addition to what you’ve already mentioned to make it robust. That’s what’s at the core of our inquiries, to find what would work for you and also for the majority of Alfred users. Do note that @Vero and @Andrew have the final word on what goes into Alfred; it’s their app. And they choose carefully, so we should be methodical about feature requests to get at the heart of what’s important and what has a tradeoff which isn’t worth it. Finally, forgive me but I’ve been wanting to post this image for a while now. I mean absolutely nothing by it except “there’s an XKCD for everything” and this one I find particularly funny and think it fits the thread.

  16. @brad parks It’s worth noting @deanishe’s suggestion can be even more convenient than what you’re asking for. Even if the newline were stripped on paste, you’d still have to do two steps: invoke Alfred and paste. With the Workflow solution, you can press a hotkey (one step) that will trim the whitespace of what you have in your clipboard and open it in Alfred’s prompt, ready for you to edit.

  17. @dcrousso In the theme editor, select the window blur mode as Visual Effect Dark, which uses the native macOS window backing and will fix the rounded corner issue of the deprecated window blur:

  21. It'd be really useful if snippets could recognise and maintain the case I use when triggering them. For example, if I type "lmk" Alfred would automatically expand it to "let me know". But if I type "Lmk" it would expand to "Let me know". Or "lMk" or "lmK" for that matter. At the moment I have to create two versions like so: Which I guess isn't so hard... but y'know. I used to use https://textexpander.com/ which allows for this, but in a fit of consolidation I was hoping to streamline my apps. t

  22. /snapshot/gif-downloader/gif-downloader.js:180 .toLowerCase() ^ TypeError: Cannot read property 'toLowerCase' of null at htmlFileName (/snapshot/gif-downloader/gif-downloader.js:180:8) at Server.<anonymous> (/snapshot/gif-downloader/gif-downloader.js:192:24) at Server.emit (events.js:314:20) at parserOnIncoming (_http_server.js:779:12) at HTTPParser.parserOnHeadersComplete (_http_common.js:122:17) Looks like somebody forgot to wrap their handler in try…catch, so a bum request is crashing the whole program instead of getting a 400 or 500 response. Also, the workflow keeps failing to save query-history.txt because it doesn't create the data directory it's trying to save it in.

  23. Just in case anyone is following this, I just released version 2.0 with vastly reworked and simplified UI for all those Zotero-users who are trying out Alfred for the first time: https://chris-grieser.de/pandoc_alfred

  24. What is does This Alfred workflow enables academic citing and publishing with any markdown app like iA Writer, Ulysses, or Scrivener. It does so by offering a Zotero Citation Picker for Pandoc Markdown Citations and by automatically converting Markdown files into `.docx`, `.pdf`, or `.html `with the proper bibliography. This workflow is made for academics like me who neither like Word nor LaTeX. As the name suggests, this workflow is basically a user-friendly interface for Pandoc, allowing you to make use of Pandoc's vast capabilities without ever needing to open the Terminal.
