    gingerbeardman reacted to lilyball in Option in workflow Open URL action to open in the background   
    The workflow Open URL action only has one custom option, which is whether to use the default application or pick a specific one. It would be great if it supported the other options available when opening URLs, most notably the ability to open a URL without bringing the application forward.

    gingerbeardman reacted to Terminal in Alfred-Man - Man Pages Search, View (Terminal, PDF, HTML)   
    Funny thing is that is shows up with a man command. So it wasn't the workflow it's self. Anyway, using a regex pattern that strings all random chars from the beginning and end of the descriptions. And since its caching, I didn't notice a noticeable impact on performance. You can either type man workflow:update to trigger the update and then man workflow:delcache to rebuild your cache, or just wait for them to trigger themselves.

    @gingerbeardman Thanks for this great workflow, this is exactly what I needed!
    Are there any new developments since?

    I was looking at your script and have a suggestion which might be less prone to changes in the UI.

    You could replace the search/input part:
    set value of text field 1 of group 2 of toolbar 1 of window "Keychain Access" to q click button 1 of text field 1 of group 2 of toolbar 1 of window "Keychain Access"
    To something like this, using the menu bar instead:
    click menu item "Find" of first menu of menu bar item "Edit" of first menu bar keystroke q

    gingerbeardman reacted to vermeer in Thank you Alfred dev team! I use a lot the snippets and love them!   
    I have 300+ snippets and counting.
    Among many other things I store all my web bookmarks as snippets, much more convenient than browser bookmarks because I can easily share them while writing in slack, reddit etc..
    Many snippets are ready-to-paste ones.
    Many others are not, and are just an easy way to consult info.
    I use cmd+S shortcuts a lot, please never drop them! Both for creating new snippets from history and for editing existing ones.
    All my snippets are just a key press away, this works much better for me than: Evernote, Quiver, NvALT etc...
    Thanks again!!

    gingerbeardman reacted to antil in Mega supporter and "free" update???   
    Looking at my email inbox this morning I saw this:
    With your Mega Supporter license, you are eligible for a free upgrade.
    Hey, a free upgrade, only costs an other an other GBP29 for an other so called "lifetime" free upgrade. Not this time. In my country, this is called misleading and deceptive conduct and run afoul of consumer protection laws.

    @antil I think you may be entering your older v2 single license into the upgrade page. If you enter your newer v3 mega upgrade license into that page, you'll get your free v4 upgrade
    If you have any issues finding your newer license, take a look in Alfred 3's Powerpack prefs to view your license, or pop an email to our info@ address and Vero will help you out!

    AppleScript's "KeyChain Access" is pretty terrible.  However, the kind bloke(s) at Red-Sweater software (maker of FastScripts) have made a scripting addition aptly referred to as the Usable Keychain Scripting
    It allows you to search using whose filters as with other enumerated AppleScript collections, e.g.
    tell application "Usable Keychain Scripting" to tell ¬
            the current keychain to get the ¬
            password of every internet password ¬
            whose name contains "google.com"

    URL schemes are poor man's automation used by iOS developers. AppleScript dictionaries is where it's at!
    Unfortunately, Keychain Access doesn't have one of those either
    Realistically, I think your best bet is "generic" AppleScript automation to simulate the input:
    tell application "Keychain Access"
        delay 0.5 -- wait for app to open/activate
        tell application "System Events"
            keystroke "f" using {command down, option down} -- ensure search bar is focussed
            keystroke "my search terms" -- enter search query
        end tell
    end tell

    gingerbeardman got a reaction from vitor in PinPlus — Interact with your Pinboard bookmarks   
    pa doesn't work for me but the hotkey does still work. Odd, right?
    This means the issue on High Sierra is in the open_gui function, which only calls the run_bookmarklet JavaScript. Which got me thinking... why run one line of ruby, to run another line of ruby, to run some JavaScript? Seems overly complicated.
    So I replaced the ruby script action (which ran open_gui ruby, which ran run_bookmarklet javascript) with an action that runs an osascript JS with the code from run_bookmarklet pasted in directly. Now pa works just fine for me.
    Feel free to include this change in your workflow. I thought about uploading my modified workflow but settled on these screenshots instead.

    Back to the discussion of why people use Pinboard....because del.icio.us went yahoo and mag.nol.ia had an irrecoverable data loss....
    I started using delicious about 12 years ago when I wanted a way to sync my bookmarks in Opera for win xp with my new iMac.  Switched to Pinboard a couple years later and never looked back.  Even though I’ve been off Windows since 2006 or so I’d never consider leaving now, mostly because of the tag-based organization - vastly preferable to folders for reference materials.

    Installed this workflow and I can use the hotkey to add unread bookmarks fine, and I can search for bookmarks fine also. However, when I use "pa", no window pops up for me to add a regular bookmark. In Safari, Develop -> Allow JavaScript from Apple Events, is checked. Safari is not blocking pop-up windows. What else am I missing?

    Simple, document-specific text snippets
    Version: 1.2
    Download on Packal

    Have you ever been taking notes and realized that certain terms or phrases were going to be used repeatedly? You don't have the time or really the desire to create all new TextExpander snippets for these terms or phrases, but you'd also really like to shorten your typing. That's where Snippets comes in. Snippets is a dead simple Alfred workflow that allows you to use simple snippet syntax while writing, and then seamlessly convert your text to its full glory.
    The set-up is simple. As you're typing, and you realize you want to make a snippet, simply prepend your snippet with ,, (comma comma). Then, when you get a free moment, create a "snippet dictionary" to tell Snippets what that snippet means. To create the dictionary, simply wrap it in ^^^ (triple carets). Here's an example:

    This is an example of ,,sn. ,,sn is a fantastic workflow for ,,a! ^^^ sn: `Snippets` a: Alfred ^^^ That's all there is to it. Once your dictionary is complete and you have finished typing, either copy the text to the clipboard and use the keyword snip, or assign a keyboard shortcut for even quicker results. When you activate Snippets, the text above will instantly become:
    This is an example of `Snippets`. `Snippets` is a fantastic workflow for Alfred! It's so simple. Double-comma before the snippet; dictionary wrapped in triple-carets with snippet: expanded. Nothing more, nothing less.Hope this helps,

    You can either download it from the homepage (http://www.alfredapp.com/#download) or you can update in-app from the General prefs tab. When you update to v2.0.1, you'll see an "Import settings" button on the General tab. You can select which setting groups you'd like to import, and web searches & clipboard snippets will respect any items you've already manually created in v2.
