    Call qapps and all apps excluding the ones you set in the keep_alive Workflow Environment Variable will quit. The Finder is added to the exclusion list by default, unless you set kill_finder to true. You’ll need to use the exact names of the apps as they present themselves to the system. To prevent multiple from quitting, separate their names with commas. qprocesses will kill all processes, subject to the same keep_alive and kill_finder settings, meaning even things in the background that you don’t see will be asked to quit. Note both options ask the apps to exit (SIGTERM) instead of telling them (SIGKILL). If you need to force processes to terminate, consider ProcessControl instead. Download | Source

    Overview here, with the latest release you can install here. Summary of the current features (6-30-19): You can search for title and author using the keyword search (default is "ib"). You can also use options as follows (in the format "ib -a" for each option, respectively): -a search by author only -t search by title only -g search by genre only -h get available options for using this workflow By default, if a title doesn't have a genre, Alfred Books won't be able to search for it. While searching, you can press ⌘L to see some metadata about the selected title; this includes: title and author, genre, percentage read, description While searching, pressing ⇧ (shift) on a selected title will attempt to show a cover and the actual filename. While searching, pressing your action button (one of the following: → (right arrow), fn, ctrl, ⇥ (tab)) will allow you to act directly on the Books file. Be cautious here, as modifying the file from this interface may cause inconsistencies with the Books sqlite database, causing you to need to modify the actual sqlite database if you say modify or delete a file here. This software (currently) only searches for downloaded books by confirming an accessible path to said file in the Books sqlite database. If they're on iCloud and not downloaded, they won't show up in Alfred Books! If you have any issues whatsoever using this software, or if you have recommendations for features, please visit: https://github.com/codycodes/alfred-books/issues

    ? keyword lets you effectively search Alfred. However it does strict search so you are forced to start search query with how the actual workflow name starts. No fuzzy searching is supported. It would be awesome if ability to fuzzy search through results was added. Thank you.

    Hello Deanishe, Yes, Alfred's clipboard merging feature is great, but you need to decide what you want to paste before to copy your text, which is not always easy.

    Hi, I've created a workflow to find and open Apple/iCloud notes in Notes.app. Just type n[part of note title] and press enter. The default search method is known to work on High Sierra and Mojave, but AppleScript options are also supplied that should work on other macOS versions. Get it on Packal and feel free to open issues/make pull requests on GitHub.

    Sure, but it might take me a week or two before I can get it written up. Feel free to nag me.

    I found this answer from Alfred. This behavior is deliberate. Many users told us that Typinator made unwanted replacements in this situation and asked NOT to expand abbreviations in Alfred's search window. For this reason, we have made this the default behavior in Typinator 8.0. However, you can revert to the previous behavior with a hidden setting. To do so, execute the following command in Terminal: defaults write com.macility.typinator2 expandInAlfred 1

    @cebroski in addition to what @deanishe said, I would recommand to remove also the last part of the scipt so it doesn't close an already opened tab. I mean, remove: -- close the first default tab tell application "System Events" keystroke tab using control down delay 0.2 keystroke "w" using command down end tell However, if I understand well what you want, I think it would be better/easier/faster to use the Alfred's builtin 'Open URL' object. The idea is to have a Keyword object (or another trigger) that connect to 2 'Open URL' objects that send your specific URLs to Firefox. Here is an example workflow that should do what you want: https://d.pr/f/jsvmIY Make sure to check the "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" in the Firefox Preferences.

    I saw this has been asked a few times before (e.g. here) but there wasn't a clear answer. Since Alfred 4 is coming soon, I would like to throw this into the pot to see if it might be possible. My brain is getting old. It's hard to remember all the different keywords and hotkeys I've set up. To aid myself I like to be able to use multiple keywords to trigger the same workflow step. Example, I have a workflow for connecting Bluetooth devices, that I trigger using `bt` instead of just "bt" I'd like to add a few more keywords, e.g. "blue", "connect", "audio" etc. I know I can duplicate the script filter opject and connect its Output to the same step—it's a poor man's workaround, but it'd be cleaner and better to allow multiple keywords, such as this:

    There is plenty wrong with Bash, but nothing wrong with you using it. It’s an idiosyncratic but capable glue language that I still use regularly. You can find it pretty much everywhere and be sure it will work with some consistency. But the way you’re writing it could indeed be improved upon. It makes little sense to keep escaping double quotes when you can use single quotes. Also, there’s no need for printf '%s\n' or so many of them. A single echo (or a Here Document) suffices. Your code isn’t working because Dynamic Placeholders aren‘t meant to be used in Alfred’s non-code areas. It wouldn’t be wise for Alfred to replace them everywhere and risk breaking your code. As a workaround, you may connect a Keyword Input to an Argument and Variables Utility that saves the clipboard contents as variables to be used in the Script Filter. Be aware that there is bound to be some breakage when the raw clipboard contents interact with the code, such as when you have a quotation mark in the clipboard. That is why raw Bash is not a good choice in this case — you need to sanitise your input beforehand, and libraries are good for that. Here’s a ready-made Workflow. I’ve kept and fixed the Bash example so you can still reference how your code could have been, but the end result uses Ruby. Finally I’ll ask that in the future, when asking for help with a Workflow, please upload it somewhere as it’s hard to help without access to it. Debugging can already be hard with access to the code, even harder to do so by guessing from a description. There are multiple places where the code or Workflow setup can be wrong. Without looking at it we’re mostly shooting in the dark. The Reporting Problems with Workflows topic gives a nice overview on how to build an effective report.

    @mklement0 interesting spot, thanks! It looks like a bug in Dictionary.app as if I type the following into Terminal, I get the same: open "dict://dunbar's number" The best I think I can do to fix this in Alfred is to strip single quotes from the input - I'll do this in the next build Cheers, Andrew

    @nikivi if you update to Alfred's latest 4.0.2 pre-release b1086, you should get the behaviour you're after. Could you let me know?

    @antil I think you may be entering your older v2 single license into the upgrade page. If you enter your newer v3 mega upgrade license into that page, you'll get your free v4 upgrade If you have any issues finding your newer license, take a look in Alfred 3's Powerpack prefs to view your license, or pop an email to our info@ address and Vero will help you out! Cheers, Andrew

    Hello! The Workflow doesn't enforce any app. It's opening through the app on your Mac that has been put as default for magnet links. You can change this in several ways, but the easier is probably to go through the Transmissions preferences window. Have a look at the screenshot attached! Then all your magnets links will open through Transmission.

    Still, it is possible (even if a terrible idea) with sudo --stdin /Applications/Marta.app/Contents/MacOS/Marta <<< PASSWORD_HERE.

    I have 300+ snippets and counting. Among many other things I store all my web bookmarks as snippets, much more convenient than browser bookmarks because I can easily share them while writing in slack, reddit etc.. Many snippets are ready-to-paste ones. Many others are not, and are just an easy way to consult info. I use cmd+S shortcuts a lot, please never drop them! Both for creating new snippets from history and for editing existing ones. All my snippets are just a key press away, this works much better for me than: Evernote, Quiver, NvALT etc... Thanks again!!

    @woowoo the minimum size is 400 as smaller than this is unusable with some of the sub views. Is there a specific reason you need less than 400px?

    Set Caps Lock as Alfred Launch Key

    I know a lot of people currently do use the Caps Lock as the Alfred Key by using Seil and Karabiner apps. But I think it would nice if Alfred had this feature pre-built in the main app. Especially with the changes to Keyboard and Mouse drivers in macOS Sierra.

    Since you are new to Alfred 2, let me explain the difference in case it wasn't already obvious. A run script (with the language set to bash) is the same as running the command from the terminal except it runs it in the background with no new windows popping up. Terminal command will launch a terminal window and run the command in that new window. If a command works normally in a Terminal Command item, then it should work normally as a Run Script with the language set accordingly as long as the script isn't reliant upon something in your profile settings or environment variables. Alfred doesn't import your environment so, if you have environment variables set that the script would need access to, these would need to be brought into Alfred. Also, paths in Alfred are relative to the folder that the workflow is stored in. So if you needed to access something in your documents folder, you wouldn't just use "cd Documents" assuming that you started in your home directory, you would have to specify full path to your Documents folder.
