  1. Thanks
    RodgerWW got a reaction from krong in I need a workflow to open a specific url in private browsing mode for Firefox   
    You will have to use system events to type keystrokes for you.
     
    Here's the applescript:
    tell application "Firefox" to activate tell application "System Events"          keystroke "p" using {shift down, command down} -- Open New Private Window     keystroke "l" using {command down} -- Select the URL field          keystroke "http://www.hotmail.com/" & return -- Paste URL and hit ENTER      end tell Just change the hotmail URL within the quotes to whatever your URL is.

    RodgerWW got a reaction from mjwalfreds in Workflow to selectively quit several apps at once   
    Here is an AppleScript that polls System Events for all running apps and pops up a list for you to choose which apps to quit:
    tell application "System Events" set processList to ¬   (name of every process where background only is false) & ¬   (name of every process whose ¬    (name is "AppName") or ¬    (name is "AnotherAppName")) tell me to set selectedProcesses to choose from list processList with prompt "Select process(es) to quit:" with multiple selections allowed end tell if the result is not false then repeat with processName in selectedProcesses   tell application processName to quit end repeat end if You can select multiple apps to quit by using the ⌘ or ⇧ keys as well.
     
    Just make a new workflow and pipe a hotley or keyword into the script above.

    The most current version can now be found on GitHub with very special thanks to xilopaint for continuing and modernizing the original workflow.
    GitHub Download. 
     
     
    Below are my older versions which I will now leave AS-IS for reference:
     
    DOWNLOAD (For Alfred 2)
     
    DOWNLOAD (For Alfred 3)
     
    For those that need to see/copy info from the system.
    Just open Alfred and type "about"
     
    To RESET the workflow type "xabout"
     
    FN+ENTER will copy the selected entry to the clipboard.
    SHIFT+ENTER will paste selected entry to front most app.
     
    CTRL+ENTER will take you to Apple's support website (based on your hardware).
    OPT+ENTER will take you to Apple's hardware specifications website (based on your hardware).

    Updated the 'HardwareIcons.xml' to include all new hardware found/referenced for icons of machines. This brings the hardware list up to date as of macOS 10.13.2 (17C205)
    This is just for Alfred 3 and the new filename is "AboutThisMac_2018.alfredworkflow", so make sure you are running the latest. This is a rather big update in terms of hardware icon support and I apologize for not doing it sooner folks!
     
    September 26, 2017:
     
    Added icon and updated script for macOS High Sierra.
     
    February 1, 2017:

    August 15, 2016:
     
    Added icon and updated script for macOS Sierra.
    Made a new version for Alfred 3 removing older Operating Systems to fall in line with what Alfred 3 supports.
    I am leaving the Alfred 2 version alone for those who still want to use it, but, it does not support macOS Sierra.

    July 9, 2013:
     
    I found an error in a line of my workflow which on most systems is a lenient one, but on some results in the Human Readable Machine in line 1 of the results to simply not show up. The error also made the links to the support site and hardware specs site not function correctly. I have corrected this line in the workflow.
     
    PLEASE NOTE: On SOME systems, and even on the current build of Mavericks, the plist file the workflow reads from is protected in a slightly different way. This means the permissions need to be changed on the plist. I have included the Terminal instructions in the 'readme' tab of the Workflow. To access this, load Alfred Preferences, Double Click on the Workflow in the left sidebar "About This Mac", and in the window that pops up, click the Readme tab ... and read!

    Added Model Identifier beside system name in top row. SO for MY system it now shows "iMac 27-inch, Mid 2011 (iMac12,2)"
     
    April 17, 2013 :
     
    Fixed a couple minor issues with incorrect selectors in the script. Serial number should show now, and 'GB' after memory size will show again.
     
    Added a system check for those that have multiple computers accessing one workflow folder (thanks DJay for pointing out that not everyone has only one computer).
     
    Removed randomUID generator for items, as the latest version of Alfred2 makes it possible to NOT have to specify unique IDs. SO, if you want an ordered list, please update Alfred to 2.0.3+

    To make the workflow universal this switches between the Yosemite themes included with Alfred 2.
     
    To change to your own "Normal" and "Dark" Alfred themes, be sure to modify the script lines accordingly:
     
    For Normal Mode change the name:

    RodgerWW reacted to rice.shawn in Applescript doesn't function properly when called from Bash   
    It works just fine for me from bash.
     
    All I did was copy/paste the snippet in the OP into a file called test.scpt. I opened iTunes, pressed play on the first track (which, apparently is a Ke$ha track... don't ask). Then, in iTerm I entered the command `osacript test.scpt`, and iTunes paused just fine.
     
    But, let's get a bit more specific. To create the script, I did `nano test.scpt` from in iTerm and copy/pasted there.
     
    As a curiosity, I tried it again by saving it through Script Editor as `test2.scpt`. The script would work correctly when run from Script Editor, but it wouldn't work via the Bash command. So I can reproduce your problem that way.
     
    So there has to be a problem with the way that Script Editor is saving that particular script. When I `cat test.scpt`, then I see the script. When I `cat test2.scpt`, then I get the binary version of the script (garbled text). The size difference is 
    staff 1952 Mar 4 11:45 test2.scpt staff 163 Mar 4 11:35 test.scpt So, 163 bytes vs 2kb. Weird, right?
     
    So, I propose a work around: save the script as plain text rather than as a compiled binary script file. While the latter should work, something is making it not work.

    RodgerWW got a reaction from rice.shawn in Create Hotkey to Paste Color Data   
    For TextEdit it's fairly easy:
     
    1: Create a new blank workflow
    2: Add three hotkey triggers, one for each color you want
    3: Add three RunNSApplescript Actions, again, one for each color.
     
    Now, in each of the RunNSApplescript Action boxes, you will want to paste this:
    on alfred_script(q) tell application "System Events" to tell text area 1 of scroll area 1 of window 1 of process "TextEdit" to if exists then set {x, y} to value of attribute "AXSelectedTextRange" if x ≤ y then tell application "TextEdit" to set color of document 1's characters x thru y to {65535, 0, 0} end if end alfred_script NOTE:  That I also copied the included 'alfred_script', so if you just copy and paste the above into the window, make sure you overwrite the others already in there.
    ALSO NOTE:  The color in brackets for the above is RED as the format is {RED, GREEN, BLUE} and the initial value is all red, and zero green and blue.
    For the green NSAppleScript {0, 65535, 0},
    For the blue NSAppleScript {0, 0, 65535}
     
    Then, connect your hotkey boxes to the appropriate NSAppleScript Boxes.

    Hmm, One way I can think of doing this with minimal effort:
     
    Create a new blank workflow.
    Add a Hotkey Trigger, and set the hotkey to whatever you want.
    Add an Action "Run Script" leave everything default (/bin/bash) and paste the following in the Script area:
     
    date "+%y-%m-%d"
     
    Then drag a connector from the right edge of the Hotkey box to the Run Script box
     
    Now, add an Output "Copy to Clipboard" and in the blank box put:
     
    {query}
     
    then select "Automatically paste to front most app"
     
    Now, drag a connector from the Run Script box to the Copy to Clipboard box.
     
    and save
     
    NOW, when you hit your hotkey combo, the date in format {y-m-d} will be pasted wherever your cursor was last.
