  1. Thanks a lot. I used `args = sys.argv[1]` and it works for multiline.
  2. My attempt: https://github.com/bhishanpdl/Shared/blob/master/Alfred_questions/aa 05 universal action practice.alfredworkflow I was trying to do some manipulation on multiline string using Alfred Universal Action. But only single line can be processed. How to process multi-line strings? **I am trying to do following** ``` This is item 1. This it item 2. ``` I am trying to create an Alfred Universal Action that will append user suggested prefix (for example: “1. “ which will make it list in Markdown). How can we do so? Can we give any prefix to the lines? Such as “1. “, “</br>” and so on? Final output will look like: ``` 1. This is item 1. 1. This it item 2. ```
  3. @vitor Thanks for the suggestion. I had somehow selected all workflow keywords and scripts in Universal Action. When I turned them off, now I have manageable amount of items to choose from. Thanks a lot.
  4. I have hundreds of workflows and many many Alfred commands. When I selected some text in text editor and went to Universal Action (cmd opt \), there are too many actions to choose from and many of them are completely irrelevant. It would be better if there are less items to choose from. Suggestion: Please add a feature so that we can right click a chosen workflow in Workflows tab of Alfred and turn it on or off to be allowed in Universal Action.
  5. @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
  6. 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:
  7. 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...

  8. 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.
  9. @deanishe Thanks, now it works, I forgot to append ?= in the end of query. Thanks a lot.
  10. 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.
  11. @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.
  12. @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...

  13. @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.
  14. @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.
  15. 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 ```
