  1. Hey everyone, Just rustled up a quick workflow to generate a password of any length and automatically send it to the clipboard, with an option for your generated password to include non-alphanumeric characters in addition to alphanumeric ones or limit it to just alphanumeric characters. Whilst this not as secure a means of generating a password in comparison to tools such as 1password (as the password will be stored in the clear in the clipboard), I figured it might be useful for some of you denizens of the Alfred forums! So, for example, entering 'pwg 15' would result in a string like this: %gnf9tgTXtle5D) And, if you want a purely alphanumeric password, just hold down option when you press enter and you'll get something like this: pCwva7DJ2EMYkE2 You can specify any number of digits after 'pwg' to set the desired length of your password. Disclaimer: This workflow is for use 'as is', and I accept no responsibility for the security of any passwords that you generate via this workflow or any accounts that you secure with passwords generated via this workflow.

  2. Top workflow, sir. You can also do this with the stock install of Alfred, without workflows – albeit with a couple more steps. Step 1: Find the app in Alfred as if you were going to launch it: Step 2: Press the right arrow key – this will show you what Alfred can do with the file. Select 'Open with...' Step 3: Type the name of your uninstaller of choice (in my case, Clean My Mac) and press return: Step 4: Cook up plans of how best to use those liberated bits and bytes from your hard drive!
  3. Great stuff, chaps – thanks for making it much more awesome than I was able to!
  4. Hey everyone! Just dipping my toe into the proverbial waters of Alfred 2 workflows, and managed to come up with this workflow. It creates a new named task in your OmniFocus inbox – it checks if OmniFocus is open and, if it's not, opens it so you don't have to. It's not particularly complicated or elegant, but I hope it's useful to a couple of you out there! DOWNLOAD: New OmniFocus Inbox Task Workflow
  5. Nice one – ipconfig rather unhelpfully doesn't return external IP address, so the easiest way to get what your current external IP address (as an IPv4) is to parse the curl output from a site that'll tell you. It's fairly easy to do this via a shell script: exip=$(curl -s http://ipecho.net/plain) echo "$exip" Hope that helps!
