    godbout reacted to deanishe in I Sheet You Not: Plug Excel into Alfred   
    I Sheet You Not
     
    Create auto-updating workflows from Excel worksheets. Works like a List Filter but using an Excel file as the data source.
     

      I Sheet You Not is a workflow generator/template for Alfred 3. It reads data from an Excel workbook and displays them in Alfred. You can specify which rows and columns the data are read from, and changes to the data are picked up automatically by the workflow.   Download and installation   Download the workflow from Packal or  GitHub releases and double-click the downloaded I-Sheet-You-Not-X.X.X.alfredworkflow file to install in Alfred.   Usage   Use keyword isyn to create a new copy of the workflow. You can either create an empty copy or search for an Excel file to base the workflow on.   See the documentation for detailed usage/configuration instructions.   Source code   The source is hosted on GitHub.   Bugs and feature requests   Bugs and feature requests should ideally be submitted via GitHub issues, but asking in this thread is cool, too.

    Because rather than testing for the value of the variable, I check for the variable existence. Again, no point confusing users that don't need it with an empty variable.
     
    New release is out!
     
    Thanks for the comment guys. Glad you helped the workflow get better.

    @xilopaint can you try this version? https://www.dropbox.com/s/bdtphtve5vfr1dh/KAT.alfredworkflow?dl=0
     
    Add a `cli` global variable. It should contain the command and a `{magnet}` variable that will be replaced by the magnet link chosen through Alfred. There' also a possibility to copy the magnet with the cmd modifier. (It's version 3.0.0 because I've updated some of the workflow's objects and I should work only with Alfred 4 from now on.)
     
    Let me know if it works well. If it does I will release an official update.

    Hello!
     
    I've updated Alfred KAT, and it's now wayyyyyyy faster (like 5 times). You can download torrents easily while avoiding all the popups.
     
    It's on Packal and GitHub.
     
    Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/alfred-kat
    GitHub: https://github.com/godbout/alfred-kat/releases
     
    Have fun!

    Yes, definitely going to the  "it's the user's problem" route. Although, I don't like this idea that much because of that need to edit the workflow again after an update, on the user's side. As a developer I want to be able to push an update every day if needed. As a user, I want my workflow to get broken as less as possible. If I make a change myself and I need to do it again after an update, that's a lot of cognitive load (at least for me). Small stuff to remember that are not worth the pain. So currently, it seems that the best idea would be a global variable like `cli`, if those variables don't get erased by an update (I guess the "migrate settings" when an updated a workflow allows for that).

    What about if when using `cmd` it copies the magnet to the clipboard rather than opening the magnet? You should be able to do something with that. That sounds more proper to me, for the workflow.

    I think @deanishe makes very good points. To be honest I had never thought of the torrent command line clients. What's the advantage? Why do you guys use that rather than a GUI client?
     
    I coud still add something more like for power users. Like if there's a global variable `cli`, use that instead of open. Quick to do. If it does make sense and help, I'll add it.

    Disagree. It seems to me that the problem here is that you're not happy with the your own system configuration and instead of spending 15 minutes putting a single line of bash in an Automator/Platypus app to fix it, you want @godbout to spend an hour or two of his time adapting his workflow to suit you instead.
     
    I mean, you didn't even consider how to support command-line clients in general (e.g. "provide an optional workflow variable to specify a shell command to open the magnet:// URL"). You just asked him to hard-code your favourite one.

    Thanks! I achieved to do it by changing this:
    public static function download($magnetLink = '')     {         $crawler = (new Client())->request('GET', getenv('url') . $magnetLink);         $magnetLink = $crawler->filter('#tab-technical a.siteButton.giantButton')->attr('href');         return exec("open $magnetLink 2>&1", $result);              }  
    to this:
    public static function download($magnetLink = '')     {         $crawler = (new Client())->request('GET', getenv('url') . $magnetLink);         $magnetLink = $crawler->filter('#tab-technical a.siteButton.giantButton')->attr('href');         return exec("/usr/local/bin/transmission-remote -a \"$magnetLink\" 2>&1", $result);     }  
    Still I think this integration would be a nice improvement to the workflow.

    Of course it would, and I understand where you’re coming from. But users ask for the same feature in every workflow that opens stuff. I’ve had people moan that my Safari workflow opens URLs in Safari…
     
    IMO, a workflow author should implement opening in the default app via a discrete workflow element, not buried in code, so it’s easy for users to change, but the rest is on the user.
     
    I mean, in most cases, the reason ultimately boils down to “I have a problem with my own defaults”. That generally doesn’t seem like it should be made the workflow author’s problem.

    Hello!
     
    The Workflow doesn't enforce any app. It's opening through the app on your Mac that has been put as default for magnet links. You can change this in several ways, but the easier is probably to go through the Transmissions preferences window. Have a look at the screenshot attached! Then all your magnets links will open through Transmission.

    Hello!
     
    If you need to share your screen with an AirPlay device easily, there's a workflow. It's been updated recently to even remove its iTunes dependency!
     
    Can be downloaded on GitHub: https://github.com/godbout/alfred-airplay/releases
    Or Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/airplay-spreader
     
    Have fun.

    Hi,
     
    The results are now so tiny, it's painful to read
    And it seems that the option to get the text in big disappeared? If yes, so my suggestion is to add it back. If no, well, where is it?
    I like when Alfred is taking all my screen estate value, that's kinda of why I open it.
     
    P.S.: Yes I have glasses, my eyes are not the problem.
    P.S.2: Yes, this is a serious request.
