Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. @frankspin - I've recently discovered that the Slack URL scheme appears to be working on the Mac. Basically, slack://channel?id={CHANNEL-ID or IM-ID}&team={TEAM-ID} will open the Slack app in the channel selected. I'm wondering if there's a way to modify Slackfred to take advantage of this versus the script that triggers the Quick Switcher? I took a look into the code, but it's a bit beyond what I understand. In a nutshell, what I'd love to do is type "slk" into Alfred to search for users or channels. Once I select one, I'll need to pass the Channel ID or IM ID (note: the URL scheme needs the IM ID that's tied to the user, not the User ID, in order to work for chatting with individual users - https://api.slack.com/methods/im.list/test)into the URL. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  2. First off, great work on Remote - I'm enjoying discovering ways to add value to my workflows already! Having played around with it a bit, 3 things came to mind that would be amazing to have (and perhaps you have plans for these already...): Send text from the iOS clipboard to the Mac via a workflow. Not only would this be a great way to get text from iOS to Mac, but it could open up some cool possibilities for manipulating said text or inserting it into workflows on the Mac. Implement support for URL schemes. Being able to fire off a workflow via Remote as part of a Launch Center Pro or Workflow action could open up a lot of possibilities too. Send commands to iOS from Alfred for Mac. Again, taking advantage of URL schemes and such, it would be great to be able to pop open Alfred on my Mac, type in a command, and have it pop up on my iOS device (see how Command-C does this, for example). This could be as simple as sending text from Mac to iOS or launching an iOS app, or it could be more complex, like triggering an action in LCP or Workflow. Anyways, just a few things to think about - and like I said, maybe you already are! In the meantime, keep up the awesome work. Alfred is easily one of my must-have Mac apps.
  3. This looks great! Appreciate the undertaking! Slack features things like this on their site - you should send it their way if/when you're interested in sharing it with more users. Thanks again! I'll be keeping an eye out for your future updates too.
  4. Awesome - that script works much more efficiently than my original one. It's a decent solution for now, but I appreciate you reaching out to Slack too. I also sent them a message, but didn't think to ask about URL schemes. I'd love to know what you find out from them. Thanks again!
  5. Thanks - Though I'm guessing the 3rd line from the bottom shouldn't be "tell process "Airmail" to...". Should that be "Slack" instead?
  6. I appreciate the more detailed insight. As I mentioned before, the API is a bit beyond my current desktop coding skills, so your comments above are helpful - thank you! A very good point - perhaps I'll reach out to their team and see what they have to say. Thanks for the idea! And, for what it's worth, here's the script I am currently using - patched together by my basic understanding of Applescript and a few Google searches. If anyone has any recommendations for improving it, I'd love to hear them. Thank you! tell application "Finder" activate set the clipboard to "{query}" end tell tell application "Slack" activate tell application "System Events" keystroke "k" using {command down} keystroke "v" using {command down} keystroke space end tell end tell
  7. My workflow is a poorly written Applescript that basically calls the app to the front and pastes in the query from Alfred. It doesn't always work, but it's not exactly what I'm hoping to accomplish. What frankspin says below is more along the lines of what I mean... Appreciate the comment though. What I've done is on my work machine, so I'll have to post what I have, for what it's worth, tomorrow. Basically, yes - I want to type "Slack Something" to see a list of users and people that match "Something". Selecting one and hitting enter would ideally launch the Slack app in said view. I looked through the API too, but APIs are a bit beyond my understanding at this time. I did find this: https://github.com/tylerhall/AlfredSlackSearch which is close, but not quite what I want. It makes me think it might be feasible, though. I'm hoping someone either knows of a workflow that does the above, or could maybe school me a bit on how to build something myself via the API - though I realize that may be asking too much as I don't really understand the scope of the work I'm trying to find/do!
  8. We just started using the Slack app at work. I love the quick "command + t" keyboard shortcut in the app to switch between users/channels. I was wondering if anyone had developed an Alfred workflow to emulate that function right from Alfred using Slack's API? I've created a rather simplistic version of this using Applescript, which sort-of works, but it's not ideal and I'm sure it could be done more efficiently.
