  1. @vitor The code suggested is much more concise, I also got another AppleScript solution from stack overflow: The problem is solved. You can close the topic. if running of application "Safari" then tell application "Safari" if the URL of ¬ the current tab of ¬ the front window ¬ does not contain missing value then set theURL to ¬ the URL of ¬ the current tab of ¬ the front window else return end if end tell if running of application "Google Chrome" then tell application "Google Chrome" set incognitoWindowIDs to ¬ the id of every window ¬ whose mode is "incognito" if incognitoWindowIDs is {} then activate my openNewIncognitoWindow() delay 1 set URL of ¬ the active tab of ¬ the front window to theURL else make new tab at end of ¬ window id (first item of incognitoWindowIDs) ¬ with properties {URL:theURL} end if end tell else tell application "Google Chrome" activate delay 1 my openNewIncognitoWindow() delay 1 set URL of ¬ the active tab of ¬ the front window to theURL end tell end if end if on openNewIncognitoWindow() tell application "System Events" to ¬ keystroke "n" using ¬ {shift down, command down} end openNewIncognitoWindow
  2. Question: How to get the frontmost url from Safari and open it in Google Chrome Incognito? So far I was able to get the name of frontmost url. I have also seen another workflow to open in chrome incognito. But, I was struggling to combine two. I would truly appreciate if somebody jumps in and give me suggestions. I am looking for AppleScript that will do the work, if there is AppleScript I will be able to create new Alfred Workflow and use it there. Some references are included below:
  3. This is one of most useful workflows I have ever seen. But for some reasons the workflow is not working for me. Is this workflow still in use (2020 April) ? I tried following: - installed downvid workflow - go to youtube and played the url elephants dream trailer - typed `dv` in alfred Error for elephants trailer in Chrome ====================== ``` [11:25:45.071] ERROR: DownMedia[Run Script] WARNING: Unable to extract video title ERROR: This video is unavailable. ``` Error for elephants dream video in Chrome =================================== ``` [11:29:26.551] STDERR: DownMedia[Script Filter] /Users/poudel/Dropbox/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.C7EBB14D-C50D-4512-B984-48E18E507967/get_title_and_url.js: execution error: Error: Error: You need a supported browser as your frontmost app (-2700) [11:29:41.478] ERROR: DownMedia[Run Script] WARNING: Unable to extract video title ERROR: This video is unavailable. ``` Error for safari elephants dream video ================================== ``` [11:36:27.797] Logging Started...

  4. You are in better luck than me. My Alfred uses Python 2. For each workflow I write separate python script and run in Alfred with `/Users/poudel/miniconda3/bin/python myscript.py` rather than typing python script right on the Alfred objects.
  5. @deanishe Thanks, now it works, I forgot to append ?= in the end of query. Thanks a lot.
  6. How to search a query using let me search that for you website? For wikipedia I can use: http://www.wikiwand.com/en/{query} # this works good For lmgtfy I tried: https://lmgtfy.com/{query} # this does not work This does not work. Is there a way we can make alfred web search for lmgtfy? If web search is not possible, how can it be done using Alfred Workflow? Help is appreciated.
  7. @vitor This time: 1. runscript applescript ``` tell application "Finder" set someSource to selection as alias list if someSource = {} then return "Select a file in Finder first" end if set theFile to item 1 of someSource as alias return quoted form of the POSIX path of theFile end tell ``` 2. utility transform ``` Transform utitliy trim space ``` 3. runscript ``` pbcopy < "${1}" ``` Error: ``` [10:24:05.982] ERROR: aa 00 copy file contents[Run Script] /Users/poudel/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred/Workflow Scripts/B0C62B8C-E0C6-4D51-BEB7-8BB2F90FCCB4: line 1: '/Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.R': No such file or directory ``` Update: =========== I used another replace utitlity and replaced single quote to double quote: '/Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.R' ==> "/Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.R" Still, Alfred debugger says: [10:28:58.588] ERROR: aa 00 copy file contents[Run Script] /Users/poudel/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred/Workflow Scripts/7A7A8F20-F2F9-46BF-9D03-BCECF018944E: line 1: "/Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.R": No such file or directory But, there is a file: /Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.R In terminal I can type: pbcopy < "/Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.R" This gives the string: "/Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.R" and the command: cat "/Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.R" | pbcopy This gives the actual contents of the file a.R in given directory. and it works in terminal.
  8. @vitor I used: javascript ``` try { decodeURI(Application('Finder').selection()[0].url()).slice(7) } catch(error) { error.message } ``` instead of applescript ``` tell application "Finder" set someSource to selection as alias list if someSource = {} then return "Select a file in Finder first" end if set theFile to item 1 of someSource as alias return quoted form of the POSIX path of theFile end tell ``` and got errror: ``` [09:56:44.050] Logging Started...

  9. @deanishe Thanks a lot for suggestion. My attempt was simpler than given link. I am interested in copy text files (.txt, .py, .md etc), images,pdf other types are not required. As vitor, suggested creating file action is super easy just pbcopy < "${1}" works good even for folder with spaces. But, I was attempting to create keyword (I already have file action) since it was easier to use and I didnt need to invoke file action trigger on selected file. I could simply use usual alfred command (double shift) as like in all other cases.
  10. @vitor Thanks for suggestion. 1. I used keyword to copy file contents of a file because its easier. using keyword: double tap shift on a file, type copy file contents, paste using file action: hit cmd \ on a file, search workflow copy file contents, select the workflow, paste using keyword saves invoking file action (cmd \) , I can directly use double shift to invoke Alfred command. 2. I appreciate pbcopy < "${1}", this is nicer than cat "$1" | pbcopy. I already have made file action for file copy, it works with space separated folders, but applescript keyword does not work.
  11. I was trying to create an Alfred workflow using which I can copy the contents of file without opening the file. github link of workflow: https://github.com/bhishanpdl/Shared/blob/master/Alfred_questions/2019/aa 00 copy file contents.alfredworkflow?raw=true Fails when: folder name has space in it. Commands used: 1. keyword: copy file contents 2. Run script with osascript ``` tell application "Finder" set someSource to selection as alias list if someSource = {} then return "Select a file in Finder first" end if set theFile to item 1 of someSource as alias return quoted form of the POSIX path of theFile end tell ``` First I had only "return the POSIX path of theFile" then I changed it to "return quoted form of the POSIX path of theFile". It still does not work. 3. Run script ``` cat "$1" | pbcopy ``` This workflow does not work. I googled and found how to get the path of selected item in Finder but could not find how to copy file contents to clipboard. How can this workflow be fixed so that it works for SPACE separated folders? Example of debug: ``` 20:30:00.162] STDERR: aa 00 copy file contents[Run Script] cat: '/Users/poudel/tmp/try space/a.md' : No such file or directory ```
  12. @deanishe I have a url like: ``` http://localhost:8888/notebooks/Dropbox/Data_Science/Untitled.ipynb ``` I want to open the url: ``` http://localhost:8888/notebooks/Dropbox/Data_Science/ ``` Which excludes the last part after "/". When I copy paste this url, it works good in Chrome, but When I open using "OPEN URL" of Alfered, it opens blank tab.
  13. I was trying to make a workflow to go one step up in jupyter notebook. When I print the output to the LARGE FONT the output is correct, I can paste the output to the Google Chrome and it works correctly. But when I use OPEN URL object, it opens the blank tab. I tried many times still it only opens the blank url. I have shared the workflow in github: https://github.com/bhishanpdl/Shared/blob/master/Alfred_questions/Jupyter Up.alfredworkflow?raw=true Question ---------------- How to make the workflow open the current jupyter notebook running in Google Chrome open a new tab with one step up ? Note: I have used too many Alfred objects, I was also wondering how can I do it only the Applescript workflow. Since I am unfamiliar with Applescript, I pipe the output of applescript to bash and then do all the work in python. If it can be done in applescript, instead of too many alfred objects it could be done in one or two objects. Thanks in advance.
  14. @deanishe Thanks for the suggestion. Now I can paste the last part of the list and also hit "shift-enter". But still I am sure how to make this in a for loop so that it works for all the parts of the list. Example: print(3) # comment print(5) I copied this text to the clipboard and ran my updated workflow: https://github.com/bhishanpdl/Shared/blob/master/Alfred_questions/a a a split the imports updated.alfredworkflow?raw=true It gives: """ # some comment print(5) """ And also hits "shift enter" (this means goes to next cell in jupyter notebook). How to make this work for all the list components like this: 1. print first part of split of # print(3) 2. hit shift-return This goes to downward cell in jupyter notebook 3. again paste next part of # split # some comment print(5) 4. again hit keybord "shift-enter" this creates new cell in jupyter notebook I am not sure how to create External Triggers for this workflow. Help is much appreciated. Thanks.
  15. Apologies for unclear question. Here is what I am trying to achieve: 1. Lets say I have a list mylist = ["#hello", "#world"] obtained from clipboard which in fact contain arbitrary number of elements. 2. print #hello to given app and simulate keystroke cmd + enter 3. print #world to given app and simulate keystroke cmd+enter If I already know how much elements in list, I can append alfred workflow object "output > keyboard combination" one by one, but I don't know how many elements are in the list and I want to hit keyboard keys cmd+enter after pasting list elements each time. The os.system("...") command is just the pseudocode, obviously it does not work.
