  1. Cool! I was hoping I'd see a timer workflow. Great job. Quick note: I think you might just be able to include growlnotify from your /usr/local/bin into the workflow folder, so it'll work regardless of whether or not it's installed. Alternatively, you could include terminal-notifier to use notification center. I'm not sure if there's a better way than that. Or you could just use AppleScript to send a growl notification, but I don't think there's support for Notification Center at this time without using terminal-notifier. One thing I'd like to see is support for hours as well as minutes, maybe in the form of "2h30m".
  2. I plan to add support for Canary, Chromium, and Webkit (I've already coded most of it). Unfortunately I'm having some issues with my system right now, but I'll try to get it updated as soon as I can. Edit: Done.
  3. You might need to make a few adjustments to get it to work with osascript. Feel free to message me with the script if you need any help.
  4. As far as I know it's not possible to read the keyword. However, you could have each keyword run a bash script that sends a keyword to an applescript: osascript scriptname.applescript keyword You'd then just open the workflow folder and create the applescript file there. To get it to read the keyword, you'd use something like this: on run argv set theKeyword to item 1 of argv -- your script here end run It's not as elegant as I'd like, but hopefully it'll work for you.
  5. Awesome workflow. Just one problem with the developer website: I tried to upload an extension (com.clintonstrong.RecentFolders), but I was prompted to log in again after hitting upload. I tried to reupload it, but it said it's already been uploaded, yet it's not listed under "Your Workflows". (Oh, and this is really minor, but there's a typo in the developer website's title.)
  6. Search your tabs in Safari, Chrome, Chromium, Chrome Canary, and Webkit. When you action a result, it'll bring your browser to the front and switch to the selected tab. You can also close a tab by holding down alt when actioning a result. Download from Packal Updated Feb 8, 2014: Made it more resilient to an AppleScript error that could cause a blank output. Update #2, Feb 1, 2014: Fixed regression with searching. You should be able to search anchored by words (and capital letters in CamelCase words) again. Updated Feb 1, 2014: Rewrote the workflow. It now supports copying the URL of a tab, viewing a tab in QuickLook, and closing a tab with a modifier key. Updated Oct 11, 2013: Fixed issue with improper string encoding in Mavericks and Ruby 2.0 breaking the workflow. Updated Oct 9, 2013: Updated for Mavericks and Ruby 2.0.0. Removed thumbnails for now (beta versions of Safari don't seem to generate them anymore). Fixed some issues where the proper window wouldn't always focus correctly. Updated May 4, 2013: Experimental support for webpage thumbnails. Prevent launching browsers when WebKit is open. Updated Mar 26, 2013: (Hopefully) prevent launching browsers when it's not supposed to, and fix an issue with it not detecting WebKit.
  7. Just wanted to share a few quick tips for debugging. If you're using /bin/bash to run a script, you can add "2> error.log" to output errors to a file. Example: ruby script.rb "{query}" 2> error.log All errors will then be logged to error.log in your workflow's folder. Or if you want all output logged (perhaps so you can view the xml from a script filter), you could use tee: ruby script.rb "{query}" 2>&1 | tee output.log That'll log errors from stderr in addition to standard output. Note that PHP doesn't output to stderr, so if you're using PHP you'll have to check PHP's error log instead. Also, if you have any formatting errors in a script filters' XML, Alfred will log it to Console.app. Hope this helps, and feel free to share your own tips.
  8. In another thread, Florian suggested using a timestamp as the uid. That way you get a different uid each time, which should prevent Alfred from remembering which results you select the most. Not a perfect solution, but if you just want to control the order of your results, it should work well enough.
  9. I think it only reorders after you action one of the results. I had the same problem, but removing ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Databases/knowledge.alfdb and relaunching Alfred results in them going back to the correct order. It'd be nice if there were a way for workflow developers to turn off Alfred's knowledge per extension, so we could sort results reliably. Maybe an attribute on the <items> tag?
  10. Thanks! Just remembered reading about file icons in your post on generating feedback, so I've updated my workflow to use the proper icons. Link: http://cl.ly/0V1G2x0B0I3Y Updated my original screenshot to reflect this.
  11. Ah, thanks, good to know. I spent most of my time trying to figure how to read the recent folders from Finder's plist (after lots of googling, I still had no idea what I was doing ), so I sorta rushed through the workflow bits. Oh, and sorry for anyone looking at the applescript, as it's a bit of a mess. I'm working on cleaning it up and documenting it better, for anyone who's curious how it works. Edit: I've updated the workflow to clean up the applescript a bit, for anyone interested. I've updated the download URL in my original post, but I'll post it again for convenience: http://cl.ly/0V1G2x0B0I3Y
  12. Sounded like an interesting idea, so I figured I'd give it a go. It uses the same list as the Go -> Recent Folders menu in Finder. I haven't thoroughly tested it yet, so let me know if you have any problems (or any other feeback). Download
