  1. @MVR London Did you type "reload" into Alfred? This will refresh the app cache for any apps that may no longer exist in the old location. Cheers, Vero

  2. Like Safari Assistant, but for Firefox. Download from GitHub. Search Firefox bookmarks Search Firefox browsing history Run bookmarklets Activate & close tabs Add you own custom scripts The workflow requires you to install a corresponding Firefox extension in order to communicate with Firefox. After installing the workflow, run ffass > Install Firefox Extension to get the extension. Once the extension is installed, everything should just work. The workflow is fairly customisable. Y

    Calculate Anything

    Calculate Anything is a workflow for Alfred 4, that uses natural language and is able to calculate multiple things like currency, time, vat, percentage, etc. Why? There are several workflows out there but i just needed a workflow that worked naturally for example you can open alfred and type 100 + 9 and alfred will give you a result no need for keywords or hotkeys it just works, i wanted to be able to jus type 100 + 16% or 100 euros to usd or 100km to cm or 100 years to hours and a large etc. and so this workflow was created. Features - Natural language

    New Bear Alfred Workflow

    I've created a new Bear Alfred workflow here: https://github.com/drgrib/alfred-bear It is faster compared to the current Bear Alfred workflow because it is written in Go instead of Python and has optimized SQL queries. It also adds tag searching and autocompletion, link pasting, and clipboard content to note on creation. I do appreciate the author of the original Bear Alfred workflow because I started mine from his design.

  9. A few moments ago, we popped Alfred 4.1 on the pre-release channel. It's a big release with lots of tasty stuff for you to sink your teeth into. New workflow objects for integrating with files and the File Buffer Shared Hotkeys for workflows Embedded Snippets Contact Actions Built-in File Search Troubleshooting from the Help preferences And loads more! Take a look at the Update tab for a complete change log, as there's a lot in this release, which is free to all Alfred 4 Powerpack license holders. We'd love to get your help in

  11. Safari automatically reads your text messages and asks you to auto-fill any two-factor codes it finds: I don't use Safari (I use Chrome) and I was sick of having to manually type the codes from my messages. This workflow reads your message history and finds the most recent 5, 6, 7, or 8 digit two-factor codes. When you select a code and press <enter> it is copied to your clipboard, or you can press <⌘+enter> and it will copy the code to your clipboard and paste it into the active application.

  13. Yep, I'm getting this issue as well. Something to do with verification failure of Power Thesaurus' SSL certificates. Will shortly release a hotfix for this. If this persists, please open an issue here. Edit: I've released the fix for this which can be downloaded from here. Will update the packal page with this update later.

  14. At the moment, when you assign a key combination to a particular hotkey in Alfred, it keeps you from using the same key combination with a different hotkey. While this make sense in most scenarios, when the hotkey is assigned to a particular app - as specified in the Related Apps panel of the hotkey, and selecting the option that limits the hotkey to when the app takes focus - it seems unnecessary to restrict the user from using the same key combination with other apps that might have focus. As a result, I'd like to request this feature be added to Alfred. Without this ability, it

  15. Hi there, Just sharing my first workflow. Some OCR workflow already exist but are relying on some obscur chinese API with exposed personal credentials... This one use your system own installation of `tesseract`. Just take a snapshot and paste the text. The script usually takes no more than a few seconds. https://github.com/nicooprat/alfred-ocr PR welcome. Hope it helps!

  17. @unitof Alfred is showing the actual location of the apps as passed back to him by macOS when searching. I'm going to be adding a bit of logic to be able to show the virtual locations of the apps (/Applications/.../) in a future release. Cheers, Andrew

  19. For those who love Notion.so (really great documentation & more tool), you will know how useful it would be to get instant search results from Notion in Alfred. To that reason I've created a workflow that does exactly that, allowing you to search your Notion.so workspace from Alfred, showing instant results, and the ability to open the browser to your selected page. There are two env variables required (the notion search api isn't documented), these can be obtained by inspecting the network request from a notion search, as documented in github below. C

  20. This is a workflow for searching and adding bookmarks to Raindrop.io. To search your Raindrop.io bookmarks, open Alfred, type r, space, and then your search query, and the results will show directly in Alfred so that you can select one and press enter to open it in your browser. Raindrop.io collections and tags will also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with

    macOS Big Sur

    Hi, currently using the macOS Big Sur Beta and was styling Alfred for the upcoming makeover of the macOS UI. I prefer a look as close to the system UI as possible. Light: https://www.alfredapp.com/extras/theme/eHfgpMFvON/ Dark Mode: https://www.alfredapp.com/extras/theme/NWnuAKel02/ A little unfortunate, that there is no option to round the corners on the selection background elements, they appear very pointy in the new environment of even more rounded corners in macOS Big Sur. Hope you enjoy!

  22. The simple answer to this is Alfred Remote *will* get a major update, but I can't give you a timescale. To keep Alfred's quality as high as possible, we are extremely selective over which features bring the most value to our wider user base. Alfred Remote constitutes a minor part of this user base, so while we have continued to add features to Remove via updates in Alfred itself, the core Alfred Remote app has remained as is. While it would be nice to do a minor update to Remote to include some of the newer iOS features, Apple has evolved iOS significantly since Remote

  24. For anyone landing on this thread: the previous iTerm scripts have changed ownership (disclaimer: I’m the new author) and have been rewritten from scratch, so if you have any issues try the newer versions. You can find them on the new repository, or by using the old links as they will redirect to the new one.

    Snippet Creator

    See for the background. Snippet Creator adapted from https://github.com/derickfay/import-alfred-snippets There are two keywords, both of which result in the creation of a new snippet: sc - (single step) Required fields: name|keyword|content -- separated by | sc2 (multi step) - Enter the snippet text, then you'll be prompted for the keyword / name -- in the interest of speed and simplicity the name is set to the keyword. sc2 also has triggers to pre-population with selected text or clipboard contents set prefsPath in the env

    Search IMDB

    Because the previously shared workflows for IMDB-integration didn't work anymore I made my own. This is my first publicly shared workflow and this is also my first python-script. Probably things could have been programmed better, but it works for now. So its not really fancy, but I think its workable, as long as IMDB doesn't change the API. Hope this workflow is some use for you all. https://github.com/wotell/alfred-workflow-imdb/blob/master/bin/Search%20IMDB.alfredworkflow

  33. Yeah, I like HoudahSpot for a few things. I still use Spotlight for irregular searches, especially in source code, because Alfred deliberately ignores so much in the pursuit of speed. Also, saved searches/smart folders are awesome. My Smart Folders workflow was one of the first I wrote, and one that I still use the most.

  34. Hi @AsterY, welcome to the forum. I believe Alfred’s Lock works by simulating the Hotkey for macOS’s “Lock Screen” function, which is ^⌘Q. So what’s probably happening is that QQ has redefined ^⌘Q, which is why it’s activating.

    Alfred Markdown Notes

    Markdown Notes help to manage Markdown files in a directory with powerful full text search (supports & and |), tag search or search for todos ( - [ ] or * [ ]) . It also allows to quickly create new notes based on custom templates. I started to write this to replace the ton of Note taking apps that I used a while ago. I spent a lot of time to get this to work and the setup is a bit complex but once you went thru the steps it can indeed replace your note taking app. The best MD Editor for this purpose is Typora but any other MD editor works as well.

    Microsoft Teams

    If it's an Electron app, then client-side scripting is probably out of the question: Electron doesn't support AppleScript. Guys, just posting "+1" is very unlikely to get you any closer to having a Teams workflow. There are plenty of people who’ll help if you write the workflow yourself, and others will write you a simple workflow based on an API you've found. But not many will look at a thread of “+1” posts and decide to do literally all of the work for you. Put in a bit of effort yourselves (e.g. go find out if there's an API), and someone who can help is

    (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

  41. Update. Added a Hotkey to open a random unread bookmark. Useful to start dealing with your unread bookmarks without having to deal with choosing them. To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.

  42. There’s no programming involved on your part. This is Alfred’s simplicity, there’s no simpler workaround. If you don’t at least try these straightforward steps, you will never be able to take advantage of one hundredth of Alfred can do for you. Follow my instructions above and you’ll be done in (literally) less than 30 seconds.

  49. It's pretty straightforward, actually. The only time Alfred might pass your script multiple arguments (via ARGV) is from a File Filter or a Hotkey with Argument = "Selection in macOS". At all other times, arg and variables are always single strings. If you try to use any other datatype, Alfred will convert it to a string, e.g. if you set arg in your JSON to an array, Alfred will convert it to a tab-delimited string before it reaches the next action. If you want to pass around anything that isn't a string, you can either first convert it to a string (e.g. using JSON) and then back again

I am very, very, very new to Alfred and all things having to do with running commands in terminal and workflows using Alfred, etc... I feel like I have opened up a whole new world of fun stuff to learn and use with my computer (Mac) and have you to thank. I remember in 4th grade when I first was taught basic Algebra (2 - x = 5) and I was blown away at this new way to solve a problem, and felt so excited about Math and this fun new way to think.
