  1. @xilopaint I was hoping that was the case too, but no dice. All you can do is get a list of events. You can, however, choose which events you want to list, one of the following: attending, created, declined, maybe, not_replied. @Florian I really wish the forum ran on Discourse, because I'm so used to it from other tech spaces (and Markdown!!!). But I have managed to figure out, there's a "Follow" button, top right, above the "Reply to this topic" button.
  2. @xilopaint Thanks for responding! From the Graph API docs: "By default this does not include events the person has declined or not replied to". Is that the right use case for what you'd want to do with it—only listing events you've confirmed?
  3. I've managed various Facebook pages over the years (currently 3), and lately I've been wishing more and more to do some of that management via Alfred. This week I started hacking on it a bit, but I decided to work on a personal Facebook workflow first to get the feel for working with the Graph API, and then moving on to one for page management. I wanted to post about it here, just to see (a) if there was much interest in it besides for my own usage, (b) if so, what Facebooky things do you wish you could do via Alfred, either personal or page related? What's working now
  4. @deanishe Interesting! I hadn't noticed them snapping into place in relation to one another, gonna have to go check it out now. I know the elements snap to grid in general, because at times I've actually resorted to counting the snaps to grid to make sure elements were equally spaced... one of those ridiculous OCD moments, I guess! The use case for the relative spacing guides would be in workflows like the screenshot below—it'd be nice to just have a little visual confirmation that the white space between the three objects is equal.
  5. (I wasn't sure if I should open up a new topic or bump this one with a comment, so feel free to move it if necessary.) The guides have made it so much better... thanks again for them, @Andrew! Now the only thing I miss from laying other apps is the relative spacing guides, so I can know that my objects are equally spaced from each other, like the "Show guides for relative spacing" preference in Keynote. Here's a gif of the feature, just for reference. Thanks!
  6. I'm glad you asked, because I actually updated the workflow this week, to add Opera to the browsers and display a notification once the article was added to Instapaper, but forgot to mention it on this thread. Here's the link to the release: https://github.com/derBingle/alfred-instapaper/releases/tag/v1.0.0 @edbro What browser are you using? After seeing this, I checked it in Safari, Chrome, and Opera just to make sure it's working, and it did for me. Try updating to the new version, and see if that makes a difference. If not, let me know and we'll go from there. Glad
  7. Understood. ?? I didn't figure you would add it to the gist—it's most definitely an (unavoidable) hack and also subject to change with any changes to Opera. Mainly just sharing for any other Opera switchers like me who want to get back the functionality in their workflows.
  8. Not too long ago I switched to using Opera as my everyday browser. I really like it (Chromium + native ad blocking + better looking), but missed all the Alfred workflows that get the current URL. I've already been doing some GUI scripting for other reasons, so the last time by muscle memory I tried to use a "current url" workflow in Opera, I decided to see how hard it would be. Turns out, not hard at all—here's what I added to the script to make it work for Opera: else if (frontApp = "Opera") then tell application "System Events" tell application process "Opera"
  9. Thanks for the feedback, @deanishe. I don't disagree—Node's just what I'm working day to day and JS is the only language I'm comfortable in (working on that, though!). I already knew/used the Lodash string functions and smart title case module, so it was quick and easy to put this together. I have quite a few personalized Alfred workflows that use node extensively, so I didn't even think about it. But you're right. I might just compile the script to a binary for non-node users — seems a lot less complicated that switching to JXA, adding browersify to bundle the required modules. Bu
  10. Hey all, just published a little workflow so that I can change the case of the text in the clipboard quickly. The code is here: https://github.com/derBingle/alfred-change-case. It requires nodejs, so if you have it already, you can install via npm install -g alfred-change-case Screenshot: : Would love any feedback/suggestions!
  11. Just throwing together a quick workflow this morning and did the pre-release update to check out the feature. Just wanted to hop back in and say great job! It makes so much easier to make everything look the way you want! Much appreciated, @Andrew!
  12. Created a quick workflow this morning to add a URL or the current browser URL to Instapaper. I like this approach because it keeps me from having to install extensions in every browser I use. Github Repo Download I started to add interaction with your Instapaper account (like listing bookmarks, opening in browser, etc), but didn't want to get distracted from actual work. ? If this interests you, let me know and I'll continue working on it.
  13. Well that's about as quick of a response as you could possibly expect from a developer! ?? Thanks @Andrew!
  14. First, thanks for the app that makes life so much easier! When I'm creating new workflows, it would be great to be able to see when two inputs are aligned in the canvas. It may sound silly request, but I think the visual design of workflows really helps people understand how they work. The current grid snapping helps, but if alignment guides appeared when things are aligned and/or evenly spaced, a la Pages or Keynote, would be super helpful and make all our Workflows that much better. I added a screenshot with what alignment guides might look like just for r
