    greghoch reacted to GuiB in Support for Hotkey Sequence as trigger? (E.g. cmd+k, cmd+u)   
    Here is a workflow to show you the second idea using a Hotkey and a List Filter. You would need to put the Hotkey combination inside the Hotkey object, but this could work great as well.

    greghoch reacted to GuiB in Support for Hotkey Sequence as trigger? (E.g. cmd+k, cmd+u)   
    Dear @greghoch, you made me thought that I could write a small post about a workaround that I had in mind... The idea is to use the Snippets trigger as a workaround. So please, look at my post in the other thread to have a look and idea of how this could be done ("in some way") (Just click the link below). I've made an example like Sublime to modify text to uppercase using cmd+k, cmd+u in the attached workflow (translated to alt+k, alt+u using a snippet trigger). It's not as transparent, but could be useful  Hope this helps!
     
    ---- Edit ----
    Have a look at it or you may also prefer to use a List Filter or Script Filter that is activated using a Hotkey with the text selection and that would output a list of actions... Example: cmd+k as the hotkey and then you write "u" to filter the list to the Uppercase action or "l" for the Lowercase action, so the keypress combination could be something like: cmd+k+u+Enter

    greghoch got a reaction from blizzrdof77 in Alfred workflow for Mac OS 10.10's Handoff   
    Hi,
     
    is it possible to make a workflow that supports the Handoff feature. I think the only thing that is does is this icon on the left side in the dock to start an application from your iOS device. Is it possible to do that from alfred. Type "Handoff", see an icon from the application similar to the one in the dock and press enter to start the application? I tried to find out whether there is any command line support for handoff but I haven't found anything so far.
     
    Thanks!

    greghoch got a reaction from JoshFink in [Feature Request] Additional custom actions for contacts   
    Hi,
     
    right now, Alfred only seems to support one contact action per field. Would it be possible to support multiple actions with modifier key? For example, I would like to have the option to "call with iPhone", "call with Skype" and "send Message" for phone numbers. I think that would be a great addition. 
     
    Thanks!

    greghoch got a reaction from SCalkins in Suggestions/auto complete for Web Searches   
    Hi,
     
    it would be great if Alfred supports web search suggestions or auto complete natively. There are some workflows that implement this feature for particular searches. e.g. http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1207-alfred2-workflow-for-google-search-suggestion-instant-search-and-current-site-search/
    But native support would be great! Instantfox, for example, allows you to configure a search URL with %q for the query (same as search URL in alfred's custom searches) AND an optional "Suggest URL" that gets the auto complete suggestions. For google search, it's simply
    http://suggestqueries.google.com/complete/search?json&client=firefox&q=%q&hl=en
     
    The addition of this feature would be great! Alfred could go a step further and allow the user to set a script that returns the auto complete suggestions (as an alternative to the "Suggest URL".
     
    Thanks!

    greghoch got a reaction from eparadis99 in Zotero Support   
    There are basically two ways to access Zotero's data:
     
    (A) A server API, which is well documented: http://www.zotero.org/support/dev/server_api/v2/start
    Here is also a python library: https://github.com/urschrei/pyzotero
    Maybe there are also libraries for other languages
     
    (b ) Access the local zotero database (read only). It's a SQLite database. The documentation isn't very good but it's easy to open and take a look at. 
    http://www.zotero.org/support/dev/client_coding/direct_sqlite_database_access
    Here is a python project that reads the local database: https://github.com/smathot/qnotero

    I am pretty far with a workflow that allows you to search for items in your zotero database, open attachments and reveal items in zotero standalone. But it's still going to take some time before I can share the version, which requires adding some settings for the location of the zotero database etc.

    It'd be nice if the displayed notifications (from the output action) could have a configurable action on click, like many notifications from other applications have.

    greghoch got a reaction from twinpeaks in Reminders   
    This might be a different workflow but it would be great to not only add but also look at and mark as done existing reminders. So a script filter shows all the reminders (with the due date and reminder list in the subtitle), allows you to filter through them with search terms or by reminder list, and mark them as done by selecting them.

    greghoch reacted to xtin in Send the content of the input line from ScriptFilter to the next step as {input}   
    Many scripts that rely on external sources like web services or databases need some considerable time to evaluate.  As Alfred will always send the content of the currently selected Item if you press enter, it can only submit what has been entered up to the last successful evaluation of the script. Now for scripts where you input text, e.g. a chat message, where upon pressing enter you want to do something with that message, even if processing it has not finished yet, it would be super useful if you can access the content of the input line from the ScriptFilter in the Script, maybe as {input}. 
     
    (My current usecase is implementing skyping via Alfred, I display the last messages between the user and the currently selected friend as items, it really does not matter which one is selected to submit the message, however it is super important that the complete input string is sent to the script so it can be sent to skype, as otherwise parts of the messages will be missing. Unfortunately the SQLite query to fetch said data takes a while (maybe 50 to 100ms), enough to consistently eat my smilies or at least their mouths, which is a horrible thing to do to smilies I think this should be relatively simple to implement and provide a huge benefit to Alfred, namely be able to chat with it fluently. (Or write E-Mails, or...) )

    Hi, 
     
    is it possible to clear results list and show the "Please Wait" message again? I would like to show the results from the last search when the query=="" (which works), clear the result list when the user starts typing a search term and show the "Please Wait" message, and show the results list when they are ready.
     
    Thanks!
