  1. @alfredclough WiFi tools workflow I wrote maybe of interest to you. It can check if you are online as well as stop/start wifi or restart it.

    Foot Pedals / Udemy

    Pedals are useless in that first they are not portable. But more importantly they provide nothing in terms of utility. 3 programmable pedals can yield max 9 actions you can run. With your keyboard and something to program it like Karabiner or QMK you can map 1,000s or actions and put them right at your finger tips. Pressing two keys is faster and far more natural then remembering to press on a pedal. @Chris62 I recently wrote an introductory article to the power of Karabiner. It solved this and many other problems for me wonderfully. I would check it out. Also for your case of controlling Udemy playback, Keyboard Maestro app is much more suitable to make these kinds of things. Alfred to me is just a way to filter and search through different kinds of data. KM makes making these small actions like controlling playback in a window and other things far easier. Here is a macro I use any time I watch a video (which usually happens on YouTube). It instantly increases playback to 1.5x speed. Can press it again for 2x. Mine has extra keystrokes sent because I am using VIM mode inside my browser with sVim on Safari. For your case I would use something like this: Or even better this: KM is also amazing because to my mind, the way you construct these macros out of actions just makes sense. I share all KM macros I use too for anyone interested. ✨

    You can also use Workflow Directory workflow to quickly view directories of workflows without even going to Alfred Preferences but do it right from Alfred. Search workflow And press right arrow to see its file contents

    Snippets not working after OS upgrade

    @deanishe Did you start using Karabiner too? ✨ That snippet hotkey looks gnarly.
  5. I wrote an article on how I use Karabiner together with newly made DSL to make these awesome mappings to both Alfred and Keyboard Maestro.

    Junction with modifiers

    Sorry to hijack the thread. But I've been thinking of setting up my own service to share downloads to stuff off my own server. Can you share how you setup your workflow for it? I know your personal site is generated with Hugo and your downloads are links coming off your domain. Thank you.
  7. There is no need for applescript as there is a global hot key to start recording.
  8. Mine is set to this: For similar reason as @vitor. GraphQL servers use cmd + space to get suggestions. I never press those keys though so I activate Alfred by either pressing j and l keys together or with a single press of right command (configured with Karabiner). Although I don't often activate Alfred alone as I have everything bound to an external trigger with Karabiner. I really dislike the overhead of keywords and want to activate my stuff fast. Maybe it works for you too. Although it probably is not as common to do it this way. 🙂
  9. Or using Google Engine suggestions to pass the query to Google's autocomplete visualizer. Holy shit this is exciting.
  10. That's fine too. Python is easy to read. And you have awesome comments. 🙂
  11. In fact I think what would be awesome is to use my Web Searches workflow to let users customize custom searches driven by some engine. Either on default result or on modifiers. Through the settings, like what Search has with Installed Searches ... to list all current filters. On return of any of the results let user pick through return, alt, opt, cmd, fn, shift and then on return of those show up Web Searches prompt of all the different searches to map to. With ability to add a custom search if none of the searches you want satisfy you. (Of course user can also extend Web Searches database optionally too). That would be pretty cool I think and it's already written in Go. I might try to read through all of Searchio code and extract all the relevant parts I need to try make this work. If I will need to rewrite Searchio for this, so be it.
  12. By default you add a search engine that will as default result on activating suggestions run the query on the engine's website. Just like what Searchio does now. What makes Searchio unique is the suggestions. The version I am thinking of building looks and works exactly like Searchio does now but has ability to customize outputs of searches to custom URLs. Not sure how that would work Alfred wise but I believe it should be possible.
  13. I do think that is a superior way than what Searchio provides currently. This way it is a lot more flexible and can achieve everything current Searchio achieves too.
  14. It does. i.e. cmd + return on YouTube search filter to make a search for past month on YouTube. I see many more cases where I want to scope my search to a certain filter but reuse the suggestions powered by Searchio. Although Google Lucky search is most crucial of them all.
  15. I will try to rewrite Searchio myself with a different data model. I also wanted to include a small portion of Searchio code in my Web Searches workflow to use Google powered suggestions queries to search any website on the net. (MIT license allows me to do it if I mention where I got the code from). But rewriting Searchio should be a learning experience. Might do it in OCaml too as I've been learning it. Makes perfect sense. Thank you for your help and time.
