  1. Oh, whoops. Ran the command and it produced a notification with no issues.
  2. Never doubt the simple solutions: ┌─ Brad Workflow Data/com.vitorgalvao.alfred._sharedresources/bin ┕> ./Notificator.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts/notificator --message 'testing' zsh: no such file or directory: ./Notificator.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts/notificator Also, I noticed that there is a copy of youtube-dl, but it's not located in the bin folder, it's in the parent folder.
  3. I'm running: - macOS 10.15.1 (19B88) - ffmpeg version 4.2.1 ┌─ Brad ~/Downloads ┕> ffmpeg -version ffmpeg version 4.2.1 Copyright (c) 2000-2019 the FFmpeg developers built with Apple clang version 11.0.0 (clang-1100.0.33.8) configuration: --prefix=/usr/local/Cellar/ffmpeg/4.2.1_2 --enable-shared --enable-pthreads --enable-version3 --enable-avresample --cc=clang --host-cflags='-I/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/adoptopenjdk-13.jdk/Contents/Home/include -I/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/adoptopenjdk-13.jdk/Contents/Home/include/darwin -fno-stack-check' --host-ldflags= --enable-ffplay --enable-gnutls --enable-gpl --enable-libaom --enable-libbluray --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libopus --enable-librubberband --enable-libsnappy --enable-libtesseract --enable-libtheora --enable-libvidstab --enable-libvorbis --enable-libvpx --enable-libx264 --enable-libx265 --enable-libxvid --enable-lzma --enable-libfontconfig --enable-libfreetype --enable-frei0r --enable-libass --enable-libopencore-amrnb --enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-libopenjpeg --enable-librtmp --enable-libspeex --enable-libsoxr --enable-videotoolbox --disable-libjack --disable-indev=jack libavutil 56. 31.100 / 56. 31.100 libavcodec 58. 54.100 / 58. 54.100 libavformat 58. 29.100 / 58. 29.100 libavdevice 58. 8.100 / 58. 8.100 libavfilter 7. 57.100 / 7. 57.100 libavresample 4. 0. 0 / 4. 0. 0 libswscale 5. 5.100 / 5. 5.100 libswresample 3. 5.100 / 3. 5.100 libpostproc 55. 5.100 / 55. 5.100 - Alfred 4.0.6 - Downvid 1.22.12 Querying ffmpeg in your workflow's resource folder doesn't work, as I assume it doesn't fetch it if the system has it installed already?
  4. Hmmm. Here's another example. It never notifies me that the file is complete (no downloaded notification is triggered) and just hangs like this forever unless I use the abort (Ctrl key shortcut) to cancel it or manually kill the bash process. Worth noting, that for the example shown in the screenshot, the file was in fact muxed and available in my Downloads folder...so is something just hanging and preventing it from finishing out the process?
  5. I've been having problems with this workflow lately and haven't been able to figure it out, so I thought I'd share it back here. So far, I've had no issues getting the workflow to initiate downloads. It correctly downloads the video and audio files. After muxing, though, it throws the following error (for example, from the video located https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3NWOShvLug) when inspecting the progress using dvp: [14:24:00.383] DownVid[Script Filter] {"rerun":1,"items":[{"title":"DownVid Progress","subtitle":"ffmpeg There re't y subtites t embe / Exploring The Path to Carcosa Expansion w_ Matt Newman.f137.mp4","valid":false,"mods":{"ctrl":{"valid":true},"cmd":{"valid":true}}}]} Furthermore, it appears that the background bash process then hangs. The muxed file is located in my downloads folder and can be watched with no issues. If I delete the video file, DownVid finally throws the notification that it's completed downloading and the hung bash processes quit. Because I've seen it requested elsewhere, from my Terminal: ┌─ Brad ~/Downloads ┕> which sed /usr/bin/sed ┌─ Brad ~/Downloads ┕> which youtube-dl /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl ┌─ Brad ~/Downloads ┕> youtube-dl --version 2019.11.28 Any thoughts on how I can fix this? Here's the output when I run it through youtube-dl using my standard settings: ┌─ Brad ~/Downloads ┕> youtube-dl -f 'bestvideo[ext=mp4]+bestaudio[ext=m4a]/mp4' --all-subs --convert-subs srt --write-thumbnail https://www.youtube.com/watch\?v\=W3NWOShvLug [youtube] W3NWOShvLug: Downloading webpage [youtube] W3NWOShvLug: Downloading video info webpage WARNING: video doesn't have subtitles [youtube] W3NWOShvLug: Downloading thumbnail ...

  6. That’s a nice stopgap solution, but I think I’d still like to see it embedded as an option right in the list filter action. Alfred obviously has fuzzy matching capabilities that are highly performant, hopefully it wouldn’t be too difficult to extend it into List Filters. Thanks for pointing this workflow out, though; I’ll probably use it for a couple lists until there’s some sort of resolution to this request.
  7. Sorry if this has been suggested before; I did some searching and wasn't able to find anything related to this. It would be great if we could enable fuzzy matching for list filters so that we can search the list without having to remember structure or punctuation.
  8. While Alfred takes the cake when it comes to functionality, Launchbar certainly has a polished aesthetic. Here's my best shot at adapting its themes to Alfred. Light Theme https://www.alfredapp.com/extras/theme/gd0PV7UnCW/ Dark Theme https://www.alfredapp.com/extras/theme/7ouF832MyU/
  9. A workflow to quickly toggle macOS font smoothing on and off. When Marco Arment pointed out the problem/suggestions regarding macOS font smoothing on Twitter, it made me realize that text really does look better on a retina display with font smoothing turned off. Often I work with an external monitor, however, using a workspace that mixes a retina display with a non-retina display. macOS cannot set font smoothing on a per-display basis, so I created this quick workflow to be able to toggle the feature on and off easily. To use, simply type smooth in Alfred and you'll be presented with the option to enable or disable font smoothing. If you utilize the hotkey (by default ⌃⌘F), Alfred will toggle the state to the opposite of the current setting. You'll find the workflow over on Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/toggle-font-smoothing
  10. I've uploaded a release to a forked GitHub repository that can be found here: https://github.com/buffaloseven/Alfred-Workflows-DateCalculator/releases/tag/v2.4.1 I've made a pull request to the author's repository to hopefully get this minor tweak integrated into his official version. If you're familiar with modifying workflows, you'll be able to see the simple change I made to make it work. Enjoy :-)
  11. I don't think you can do calculations within a snippet, but you could use that workflow to calculate the date you want, and then create a snippet where the date is filled in using the {clipboard} placeholder. So your workflow could be... Use workflow above to trigger Alfred and calculate your date. Press enter to copy to clipboard. Then just type your shortcut and have it fill in the snippet with the date from the clipboard. This would be a better solution if you wanted the date embedded within a larger string. If you want to just paste in a date, you could use the date calculation workflow, set the format to the format you want to use, and then modify the workflow so that when the date is copied to the clipboard it's automatically pasted into the focused application. This would allow you to quickly insert the value into your documents. EDIT: If you're interested, I've made a modification to the Date Calculation workflow that will paste the result to the front-most application when you press enter on the result while holding the command key down. I can put it up for you to download if you'd like.
  12. I use the mini-player fairly frequently and would love to see it updated to include a button to "Love" a track (heart icon). This is a standard feature of iTunes now and other 3rd party controllers are including it, so seeing that ability in Alfred would be great.
