    (Some) Bookmarklets showing but not working

    Been hearing good things about Safari lately but I'm kinda trapped in Chromium-based browsers because of some specific Extensions I use for my job and I don't think have viable alternatives outside of them. Was wondering if that was a possibility but I didn't want to be pushy I have to agree they are not very popular nowadays but I still think it's worth a shot since they go in hand with Alfred's philosophy (or at least my interpretation of it). We currently have a couple tools that approach this, but none goes all the way: @deanishe's beta workflow: Bookmarklets saved in Safari -> Safari @vitor's workflow: Bookmarklets saved in workflow (requieres previous cleanup) -> ~Any browser @gcao's workflow: Bookmarklets saved in file -> Chrome Alfred's Web Bookmarks: Bookmarklets saved in ~any browser (some, random) -> X I'm new to Alfred (my bad, should've stared years ago!) yet I can try to hack something myself, but the thing is I don't want to duplicate functionality that is either already built into Alfred (like indexing browser's bookmarks) or another workflow (like actually executing the js in the browser). Again, if we could get "Open Bookmarks: Custom" (like "Application: Custom" in "Terminal / Shell") and full bookmarklets indexing, I think we could be really close to an elegant solution.

    (Some) Bookmarklets showing but not working

    Well then it's not ignoring half of them I could really use that feature tho, since Alfred is already indexing bookmarks it would be perfect for my workflow to call simple commands/bookmarklets like "Clip in Evernote" so I don't have to install yet another workflow (or browser extension) to do the same. Actually following that example, I tried all Evernote workflows available (and the Pop-Clip extension) and they all requiere the Evernote Mac app to be installed and running. Bookmarklets on the other hand don't requiere to spawn more processes. I now you made a workflow that allows just this but in Safari, unfortunately I use Chrome/Vivaldi Anyway, +1 for it being a native feature (maybe like the iTerm integration bit, where you can input arbitrary AppleScript code to handle it?)
  4. Hi! Since the latest update some bookmarklets are showing with the native Web Bookmarks search (specifically Google Chrome Bookmarks). However they don't work (they open a Mac OS dialog asking for an Application to handle the "javascript" URL scheme, choosing Chrome or any browser doesn't do anything), and again only some of them are showing, I can't figure out the criteria for this (all of them are on the same folder, in the Default profile). What you were doing when the issue happened Searching a bookmark(let), then opening it. Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action Yep, behaviour is persistent. Include any screenshots that might help us Include the Alfred version & build number you are using Alfred v3.5.1 [883] Include your OS X version OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 14D136 x86_64
  5. Hi! Done. Sorry I missed that guideline. Cheers!
  6. Chrome in my case (actually Vivaldi but same thing).
  7. Yeah it's probably radically different. What I meant by "global search" would be indeed just a filter to look up within the already added bookmarklets, but as it stands now I understand how that can't be accomplished. I was hoping you could see something I could be missing. Guess I'll give it a try and work something from ~scratch~, probably reuse (and credit) some of your code to actually send the JS to the browser. Thank you again for this workflow and taking your time answering (:
  8. Yeah I read your explanation about that, sorry if I sounded obnoxious. And you are right, that's what I'm mostly interested. But if we ditch the "read from browser" thing, maybe an easier way to add bookmarklets and be sure they stick somewhere between updates/reinstalls? Edit: Also, just a way to search for them without entering a specific keyword/trigger, just a global search.
  9. Thank you very much for this, @vitor! I'm pushing for bookmarklets to be natively supported by Alfred, but until then I wish to know if you have any plans to expand on this workflow. I can volunteer to help if needed.
  10. With the addition of the "Web Bookmarks" feature now Alfred indexes Chrome Bookmarks, but it ignores bookmarklets (probably intended). However it would be very useful to me if I could actually search and trigger those excluded bookmarklets from Alfred, ideally in the frontmost browser. I know about some workflows approaching this (AlfredBookmarklet and Bookmarklets) but they requiere me to clone my (currently 50+) bookmarklets list, and AFAIK there's none backup/sync option from there. I would appreciate the extra commodity to do this from Alfred natively. Thank you, cheers! David.
