    bengr got a reaction from CarlosNZ in MonitorJumper - move the top-most window between your monitor(s)   
    Hey,
    I saw a workflow request on /r/Alfred that interested me as well, and saw that no one made it yet, so I quickly wrapped up one with a little bit of Google-ing.
     
    Basically, it's a really basic workflow that moves your current window between monitor(s) with the tap of a hotkey or by entering "jump" into Alfred (both are configurable of course).
     
    I don't think I'll be maintaining this workflow, as there really is not much to maintain, it's a very simple AppleScript behind, but feel free to comment here and I'll check it every once in a while to see if anything is needed.

    bengr got a reaction from mklement0 in Add a "Rename" action to the file action list   
    Hey,
    I suggested this feature back in v1 already, but thought of maybe suggesting it again, hoping it would be added to Alfred 2 sometime.
     
    From the file action menu there's no option to rename a file. I can't think it would be that hard to incorporate into Alfred in a nice fashion.
     
    This can be done in a workflow I believe, but it would be made in a really "ugly" fashion (like the color labeling workflow here, which re-invokes Alfred after the action is selected), and it's such a useful thing that I think it should be a part of Alfred itself.
     
    Please add this to Alfred.
     
    Thanks,
    Ben

    bengr reacted to ctwise in Menu Search   
    The previously released menu search workflow has been universally panned due to the poor performance of the AppleScript that dumps menu contents. The caching of results worked very poorly as a stop-gap. So, I've re-written the menu extraction in Objective-C. It's much faster. The source is here: https://github.com/ctwise/alfred-workflows
     
    You can download the workflow directly from http://tedwi.se/u/db
     
    To recap, this workflow lets you trigger an application's menu's from Alfred. For example, if you're in iTerm and trigger Alfred, you can type 'm view' to get a list of all menu items with 'view' in the name or that belong to the 'view' menu. Selecting one of the entries triggers the corresponding menu entry in iTerm. In one sense it gives you a command-line to control your applications.
     
    The workflow has the beginnings of shortcut key display as well but it's currently disabled due to numerous bugs.
     
    Update: 
     
    v1.3 - Provide error message when assistive devices isn't checked.
    v1.2 - Skip the Safari History and Bookmarks menus. They take too long.
    v1.1 - I fixed the bug with Alfred not remembering selections and added AlleyOop support. Download from the same link.
     
    Requires OS/X 10.7+.
     
    ---
     
    You need to turn on OS/X assistive device support to allow this workflow to operate. You can find the checkbox in Settings. The settings page looks very different in recent versions of OS/X but the wording for providing access for assistive devices is very similar no matter what OS/X version you're using. Here's an image of the settings from the latest version of Mountain Lion.

    bengr got a reaction from dan_djorgi in TimeIn - Show the time in a specific location (new & improved)   
    The workflow currently relies on WolframAlpha for getting it's data. From my testing, it only shows time in 12-hour format unfortunately (I'd also like it to be location-based, or somehow be able to get the time in a 24 hour format).
    I'll have to look into other services and see if they're able to retrieve the time in other formats, or build something to convert 12 hours format to a 24-hour one.
     
    In any case, I'll look into it when I have the time.

    Thanks. Never heard of Shortcat until now, glad I did though , seems very useful, especially with the workflow.

    bengr got a reaction from Teodin in Wikipedia workflow (alternate)   
    Thanks for the change.
    I combined both versions into this. Basically allows "w en <query>" for English Wikipedia and "w he <query>" for Hebrew Wikipedia.
    You can easily change and duplicate for more languages, just look at the w_he.py file in the workflow and replace every occurrence of "he" with your language's shortened term.
     
    Also, I'm sure the main script by Benzi can be changed like so that it'll accept another parameter for language, but I too lazy to change it   .
    Basically you'll need to add another parameter for both the search_for and the resultParse functions, that'll be the language, than parse the query into the first word (which'll be the language), and the rest, which'll be the rest of the query (the actual query that'll be passed on to Wikipedia to be searched for).

    I took nirl's workflow and built it upon it, adding an option to see custom locations in Alfred (populated back into Alfred results).
     
    Usage:
    timein - see the time your default locations (you can setup those in the workflow, easy to remove/add more and modify existing ones).
    timein <location> - see the time in the typed in location, including it's flag (without the '<>').
     
    Credits:
    I've used the flags from CarlosNZ TimeZones workflow (with his permission), so a huge thanks for him for having the flags display faster and correctly now (flags were originally taken from this site, so a huge thanks to them as well).
     
    Notes:
    Feel free to take any of the code I written for the workflow and use it, but please give proper credit where needed.
     
    * Please note that this workflow is no longer in development considering the latest update to the TimeZones workflow, which implements TimeIn as a whole in it. Also, I don't have the time to maintain it as much anymore.
    Hopefully you'll continue enjoying the new version of TimeIn in the future, or move over to TimeZones.

    bengr got a reaction from nirl in time in..   
    Very cool workflow.
    Could you maybe extend this to work in an additional format of "timein <insert place here>".
    So I could have a default set of cities/countries set up when I type in just 'timein' (as the workflow does now), and if I type a city's name after it I'll get it's current time pushed in Alfred's search results?
    For example:
    "timein New York" will show up the time in New York (and maybe pop in an icon for the country? but that's really optional of course).
    EDIT:
    I took a little time and added most of what I wanted really quickly. You can get the updated workflow here: http://cl.ly/Nbwe.
    I hope it'll be useful to someone, and if someone will be kind enough to try and get the proper location's flag of the location that would be more than great. I tried to query Wolfram for it, but it wasn't very collaborative.
