Helping Hand

Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. For some reason Alfred (v3.3.2) can't find Xcode on my macOS Sierra MBP (10.12.5). I installed Xcode normally via the App Store to /Applications. I also tried to reset the Alfred search scopes, but that didn't help. As far as I can tell, Xcode is the only application that Alfred can't find (aside from the other developer tools in /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Applications)
  2. I didn't really like any of the existing Pushbullet workflows, so I made my own. Say hello to AlfredBullet: Pushbullet is an app and service that lets you send links, text and other content between your devices (iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, etc). The workflow is available for download on GitHub and (experimentally) Packal: Github (matiaskorhonen/alfred-bullet) Packal: AlfredBullet
  3. I can confirm that the Alfred script runner launches a process like this: matt 3225 0.1 0.0 2434120 1920 ?? Ss 7:18PM 0:00.01 /usr/bin/ruby -e #!/usr/bin/env ruby^J# encoding: utf-8^J^J# myPhoneDesktop for Alfred extension^J# v2.0, 03/ … APP_NAME = "mpd"^JAPP_PATH = "/Applications/myPhoneDesktop.app"… As you can see, I've truncated a lot since it is quite long (it contains the entire Ruby script, full entry here: https://gist.github.com/matiaskorhonen/5783255), but the main gist of it is that it contains the "myPhoneDesktop.app" string, so you can just grep for that to find out if the app is actually running…
  4. Shorten GitHub URLs with Git.io. Simply use the keyword gitio with the GitHub URL as the argument. The shortened URL is automatically copied to the clipboard. Important: Git.io is NOT a general purpose URL shortener. It will only shorten github.com URLs. This is mostly useful to software developers Download from here: randomerrata.com/post/50157813021/git-io
  5. Piranhas is a service that lets you compare book prices on five country-specific Amazons (US, Canada, UK, Germany, and France) and Book Depository to find the cheapest store for your books (including shipping and currency conversions). This Alfred 2 Workflow lets you search for books on Piranhas right from Alfred. Simple use the piranhas keyword with your query as an argument. You can find an up-to-date download link on this blog post: randomerrata.com/post/50019194178/piranhas-workflow
  6. Thanks, I updated my blog post to include a link to the official workflow.
  7. An Alfred 2 Workflow for clearing your OS X DNS cache on Mountain Lion (10.8), Lion (10.7), and Snow Leopard (10.6). You can find more details and the up-to-date download link here: randomerrata.com/post/49934511898/clear-dns-cache You can also find my other workflows on my blog: randomerrata.com/tagged/workflow
  8. My Toggle Tunlr Alfred (v1) extension updated to an Alfed v2 workflow: randomerrata.com/post/45416086523/toggle-tunlr
  9. Do you have duplicate items under the Finder Open With menu? If so, repairing the Launch Services register usually helps. This can be done by running a command in Terminal, or with this workflow which does exactly the same thing. Download here: http://randomerrata.com/post/45404465078/repair-launchservices
  10. I managed to update the "old" myPhoneDesktop - Send to iPhone extension to an Alfred v2 workflow: randomerrata.com/post/45363184146/send-to-iphone Note: I am not affiliated with the original author of the extension nor with myPhoneDesktop. I just needed this for myself. Hopefully someone else will also find this useful. The original extension had Alfred Extension Updater support, this, for obvious reasons, does not.
  11. I just published an updated, workflow version of my Alfred v1 extension, Airplay via Beamer: randomerrata.com/post/45353268246/airplay-via-beamer-v2 This workflow implements a file action that you can use to Airplay video through Beamer.app (Obviously you'll need to have Beamer installed). And in case you don't know what Beamer is, here's the description from the Beamer homepage: This GIF screencast is from the Alfred v1 extension, but the idea remains the same:
