    Diegobit reacted to vitor in Why use a login item instead of a launchd daemon?   
    To open at startup, Alfred is setup as a login item. However, Apple has been recommending for years that instead of being set as login items, apps should set up a launchd daemon. I don’t recall exactly where they mention it, but I’ll find it for you if you want.

    So why pick the login item route?

    Diegobit reacted to AlexMartinFR in Mojave Accented Dark & Light Themes Collection + Theme Switcher Workflow   
    I added a workflow to go with this set of Themes, you can find it on the same Github repo in the Workflows folder
    It features two commands :
    "theme" : toggle between Dark & Light themes for both macOS & Alfred.
    "theme red" : switch to the Red Accented Alfred Theme.
    Here is a screenshot of the MojaveThemeSwitcher and its options:

    Hello there!
    Here is a new Mojave & Alfred Theme Switcher workflow intended to work with a collection of theme inspired by the new macOS Mojave UI Accent Colors.
    With the "theme" command, you can either toggle between the Dark & Light version of your currently selected theme, or switch to another Alfred Accent Color.
    Just remember to install all the themes if you want to be able to try every variant!
    I hope you'll enjoy it

    Howdy Fellow Alfred-itors!
    I've been trying to figure out how I could modify Alfred's awesome keyword / search engine feature to enable me to do a Google search in a new background tab—i.e., *without* automatically shifting from my current browser tab (or current application) to the new browser tab where the search opens, as Alfred does by default.  There were a few forum posts over the years from users seeking this feature—but none of them was satisfactorily answered… Ha, but since I managed to figure out a workaround riiiiiight before I was about to give up, I thought I'd pay it forward and post it here —> since perhaps there are other users who'd like to enable to this search-in-background feature.
    This workflow enables you to (1) search Google using Alfred while browsing in Safari in a new background tab—as well as (2) to stay in a different (i.e., non-Safari) app and run the Google search entirely in the background… which can be helpful if you're, say, poring over an Excel spreadsheet and you want to remember to Google search something later—but don't want your focus to get yanked away from your current work.
    It's a simple two-step workflow design:
    INPUTS = "Keyword" —> ACTIONS = "Run Script"
    NOTE:  You must select "/usr/bin/osacript (AS)" from the "Language" drop-down menu on the script action—and then select "with input as {query}" from the adjacent drop-down.
    Here is the Applescript to enter into the "Script" box:
    set myURL to "https://www.google.com/search?q={query}" tell application "Safari" tell front window make new tab at end of tabs with properties {URL:myURL} end tell end tell  
    And finally, here are screen-grabs of how I configured both workflow items:

    I hope someone out there finds this helpful!

    Diegobit reacted to snej in Free memory   
    There's no need to "free up memory" in a modern OS. The kernel manages RAM efficiently. What the 'purge' command does is flush filesystem buffers; this will actually slow down the OS for a little while because recently-used stuff that was cached in RAM for fast access is gone and has to be slowly loaded from disk again.
    As the man page for 'purge' says, "Purge can be used to approximate initial boot conditions with a cold disk buffer cache for performance analysis." That is, it lets you reproduce the slowness of a cold-booted system. This isn't something you want to do in normal circumstances.
    I'm sure some people will insist this kind of thing really does speed up their computer, but I'm pretty sure that's the placebo effect talking. When my computer starts to feel slow, I open Activity Monitor and look for which process is either hogging the CPU or allocating huge amounts of private memory, then quit that process.

    @Diegobit I really like your theme -> using it for quite a few months now (light and dark).
    The only problem I have is every time I launch the Alfred search bar, I can't move it  (= once invoked, its position is fixed). 
    Is it a setting you have set, a bug?
    I used to use themes where I can move Alfred search bar, that is why I guess the problem is coming from your (lovely) theme.

    Diegobit reacted to Vookimedlo in alfred-say-you-say-me   
    Hi there!
    Here is another workflow merely for fun. It's based on a MacOS built-in voice synthesizer. See more details below and have a fun!
    GitHub: https://github.com/vookimedlo/alfred-say-you-say-me
    Alfred 3 workflow for saying a given text or a file content with a selected voice.
    Install alfred-say-you-say-me workflow. All further updates are handled automatically. Usage
    Select a UTF-8 encoded text file in finder and invoke the alfred file actions ⌃⌘\.

    Choose the Say... in a displayed menu and select appropriate voice.
    Then, the resulting file will appear in your Desktop directory.
    Alternatively, you can pass the text you want to hear to this workflow. In Alfred, type say and pass the text as an argument.

    Then, select a voice and your text will be spoken. Voices are sorted by their locales and previously selected voices are prioritized. Notice, that each voice in a menu contains its locale, name and a localized voice introduction.

    If you press ⌘ during a voice selection, spoken text will be saved in a file stored in your Desktop directory.
    Have too many voices for a selection is pretty useless, so you can configure the language filter in a workflow configuration. Fill all required locales in language_filtervariable. Filter is case insensitive and is a regular expression. If you don't know what the regular expression is, just put there all locales divided by the pipe symbol |. See the screenshot below.

    Then, you will see just voices which your languages support.

    There is another variable you could set. It's a buggy_voices_filter variable, which contains a list of buggy voices. Currently, there is a problem in the Apple Synthetization Daemon and some voices can stick it. At the moment, only the en_us - Alex voice is added there. Again, list is a regular expression.
    Stuck daemon could be unstuck by typing .say-unstick in Alfred.

    Diegobit reacted to Luciano Santana in EggTimer v2 [updated to 2.0 final]   
    Here is my own custom version : https://github.com/lucianosantana/EggTimer2  (based on the updated version for Alfred 3 by @ianhowson)

    For the issues with the notification I had to change the notify_functions.sh .
    I've completely erased the original and added the following : 
    notify () { if [ "$5" = alarm ]; then nc_icon="$PWD/resources/icon_alarm.icns" else nc_icon="$PWD/resources/icon.icns" fi osascript <<EOD set img to POSIX file "$nc_icon" display dialog "$3\n$4" with title "$1" with icon img buttons {"OK"} EOD } I'm using AppleScript to display a Dialog (not a notification). This way the message sticks on the screen until I interact with it and I don't loose the reminder if I'm temporarily away.
    I also had to invert the order of execution of the sound and alert. Originally it executes the notification then the sound. But changing the notification to dialog blocks the script execution, therefore the sounds executes after user interaction. To solve this issue just search for 
    afplay sounds/alarm_done.mp3 & in the files timer_alarm.sh , timer_auto.sh and timer.sh . Then move it just before the notify command.

    Might be helpful for you @Basket and @Dzier .

    Diegobit reacted to stuartcryan in BTConnect Workflow - Would anyone find this useful - Released for Feedback December 26 2017   
    Howdy All,
    This is a quick one I have thrown together for my own use, I am hoping for some feedback on if anyone else would find this useful. I.e. do I keep it to myself, or productionise it properly?
    I put this together primarily to connect quickly and easily to my Apple Airpods and an Alfred Workflow seemed like a great way to do that. I then expanded this to do hotspots and extra headphones as well.
    Shoutout goes to Ian Gloude for his code on https://medium.com/@igloude/using-applescript-and-btt-to-make-the-airpods-experience-a-little-bit-better-6e78b12d33bd that makes this work. Essentially all this workflow does is do the clicks in the UI for you. I have logged a RADAR to Apple's BugReporter to request proper programmatic access to such Bluetooth functions also (for good long-term measure).
    You can grab the beta workflow from: https://web.tresorit.com/l#5nvV-nDObUj8ovGFXYHP5g
    Load up workflow Open Workflow Environment Variables Modify Workflow Environment Variables with your Bluetooth Device Names. PLEASE NOTE - read the notes alongside regarding regular and artistic apostrophes. AirPods especially seem to have artistic apostrophes in their name so you need to make sure you get the right one. Should be good to go  
    btairpods - connect to your airpods (they must be out of their case) btheadphones - connect to another set of defined headphones btphone - connect to phone network bthotspot - connect to iDevice hotspot (note this forces a several second delay between clicking the WiFi menu and clicking the hotspot as it usually takes a second for the hotspot's to show) dcbthotspot - disconnect from iDevice hotspot

    Hello, fellow Alfred Fans!
    I looked around for an Alfred workflow for the great volume un/mounting app Jettison. I couldn't find anything so I thought I would just make one and share it in case anyone else needed it. This is my first shared workflow, so hopefully it is up to snuff! 
    Jettison Workflow for Alfred 3
    Jettison is a lightweight MacOS menulet application that automatically and safely unmounts and remounts external volumes when your computer wakes or sleeps. alfred-jettison is a simple Alfred workflow to manually invoke Jettison Actions on command.
    Download the jettison.alfredworkflow and double click to open or manually drag to the worfklows tab of Alfred's preferences pane.
    alfred-jettison requires Alfred 3 with a Powerpack license and Jettison, both of which are paid apps.

    alfred-jettison uses the keyword "jet" to safely eject or mount/remount external volumes.
    jet mount Mount or remount all available drives jet sleep Safely eject all drives and sleep jet eject Safely eject all drives and stay awake Notes
    Though Jettison is not a scriptable application, alfred-jettison uses AppleScript to invoke actions by selecting items in the menulet menu via System Events
    Eject / mount specific volumes - currently alfred-jettison is only able to act on ALL available drives License / Disclaimer
    This workflow is available for free use via the MIT license. However, Jettison and the Jettison logo are copyright St. Clair Software. Use here is not authorized by, sponsored by, or associated with the trademark owner.

    Diegobit reacted to vitor in Show “no results found” on Alfred Filters Results   
    Here’s an example from a Workflow whose “Alfred filters results” is checked in the Script Filter, and no results are found:

    And here’s the result from a Workflow whose “Alfred filters results” is unchecked in the Script Filter, and no results are found:

    In the second case I’ve added a conditional that, when no results are found, produces a single invalid (can’t be actioned) result, informing the user. To me, this is an important feature because it:

    Informs the user their command ran successfully. Informs the user what was the query that ran. This is particularly useful when queries are slow to run (contacting a server) and you’re not sure if it’s failing for the previous query (so you should wait), or the latest one.

    In contrast, the first example is indistinguishable from a Workflow error. Sometimes when I get that result I purposefully type something else or check the debugger on my own Workflows to make sure nothing is broken.

    So my feature request: when “Alfred filters results” is checked in a Script Filter and it produces no results, output a message informing the user. Something generic like ““{{whatever query}}” produced no results” would suffice.
