    politicus reacted to vitor in Future macOS versions won't bundle any scripting language runtimes   
    Not really. The best macOS version for a particular Workflow is bound to be whatever version the Workflow author is in, because that’s the one they’ll make sure it works in.
     
     
    That said, I agree here. Mojave is the newest non-completely-broken macOS.
     
     
    I’d bet Alfred’s team has multiple macOS versions available, to be able to evaluate reported bugs. I’d also bet they have little choice but to run the latest (Catalina in this case) most of the time, because those only gain more users while the older macOS versions lose them, and the teams needs to chase new bugs.
     
     
    More than we’d like, unfortunately (I see them added to Homebrew Cask). Authors of new open-source native apps tend to target Catalina (as in “I’m starting now, I’ll only support the newest”) and there are also commercial apps whose newest point releases are Catalina-only. It’s also common to see “our app is now discontinued, as it will never be updated to 64bit”.
     
    I have seen iOS app authors go iOS 13 only and then backtrack and readd support for iOS 12, but haven’t heard of anything like that on macOS.

    Mojave's probably the sweet spot. It doesn't have all the awful features of Catalina that have crippled so much software, and very few apps are Catalina-only.

    Easily done with a workflow (download available for a few days). It’s pretty bare, so you should fill the missing information that you care about, but it works. Pick a hotkey to call it, or run lt (for “LargeType”).
     
    For reference, here’s how it looks


    The Run Script node simply includes the text pbpaste.

    Awesome! One more dfay workflow I will use 10x everyday 
     
    Feature request :
    If you could add a mix of the Camel case and the Pascal case (First letter of the word is a capital letter / space between words are replaced by an underscore --> My_Great_Variable_Name), I would be the happiest. (I name my files/folders using this case).

    Automating Alfred Preferences
     
    I have always hated how in Alfred Preferences there were really no hotkey support for making things and you had to use your mouse for creating workflow objects or do any kind of interaction to make the workflows.
     
    I have however managed to fix this by using Keyboard Maestro app to make macros to both create workflow objects from the keyboard alone as well as do common operations like opening debugger, changing workflow version number, making notes and a lot more.
     
    I put all the different actions for creating workflow objects in a palette.
     
    To better demonstrate everything, I made a YouTube video that you can watch below:  
     
     
     
    Download
     
    Here is the repository where you can download these alfred palette and the macros for using in Alfred:

    I hope you find it useful. Feel free to comment and I would love to hear your thoughts on it or perhaps on ways that you guys have automated using the Alfred Preferences editor itself. ?

    @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.

    politicus reacted to davosian in Custom Dynamic Placeholders in Clipboard Snippets (v3)   
    In light of replacing other text expansion tools with Alfred, I am missing two features in the beta version of Alfred 3:
     
    I need the feature of having a text entry field after having triggered a snippet so that I can fill in missing information "at expansion time", e.g. a snippet like "Dear {name}, ..." should allow me to enter a replacement for {name} during expansion of the snippet. There is support for dynamic placeholders, but it seems that this is only for date, time and clipboard and not for "on expansion time" values since they would require a UI to enter the missing values.  
    Here is an example from another implementation (Dash):
     
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ztnzp22reoa8b9l/Sample_custom_dynamic_snippet.png?dl=0
     
     
    I need (basic) rich text snippets which allow me to format parts of my snippet in bold, as list item etc. It looks like I can format the complete snippet as a whole only as of now.  
    I am really looking forward to the next iteration of the snippets feature.

    politicus reacted to deanishe in Open all files in a folder   
    Makes sense. A smarter way would be to create some new test data and try the workflow (or whatever else) on that. Apart from being quicker than asking, I may have misunderstood the question (for example, I’m still not sure whether I was supposed to write a script that only opened files, rather than files and directories), and I may have made a mistake.
     
    The proof of the pudding, and all that…
     
    (Certainly, when testing the script, I used a very small, throwaway directory tree.)

    politicus got a reaction from Vero in Opening a browser tab to URL based on clipboard contents   
    I have a workflow that does that. 
     
    It copies some text in the clipboard. After I hit a magical keyboard shortcut, it opens a url with the format (URL/ClipboardContents) in a new tab in my favorite browser.
     
    You combine a "hotkey action" (select "Pass through to workflow" and "selection in macOS") with an "open url" action (place {query} where you want your clipboardContent to appear) and you are good to go.
     
    HTH.

    Hi, 
     
    Yesterday I updated Alfred to the latest version of Alfred (3.3.2) as I wanted to get rid of the little bug I encounter every time I expand a snippet for the first time of my session.
     
    Alfred either expands the latest clipboard item or if the text of my snippet is "Alfred", Alfred expands "AAlfred".

    politicus reacted to Vero in First snippet expansion in Alfred 3.3.2.   
    @politicus If that first "A" that remains is part of your keyword, it's likely that you either need to slow down key events (giving your Mac a fraction of a second longer to delete the keyword before pasting the snippet) or check for interfering apps that may also be trying to manipulate text.
