  1. 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/
  2. 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
  3. 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 :-)
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
