  1. @vitor Thank you, this makes it clear. I had missed that part in the documentation. I will stop using the fully qualified path, release an updated workflow. (PS: also thanks @xilopaint) Also, thanks for linking the discussion about bundling python in Alfred. It does seem like a bad idea after that explanation.
  2. @vitor thanks for taking the time to answer. Appreciate it. Just to confirm if i understand the reasoning behind your suggestion to use python3 (instead of fully qualified `/usr/bin/python3`): - so we're basically betting on the user not messing with the `PATH` (and keeping python3 on it) - ... instead of a situation where apple removes the shim -> Alfred users having to install python3 themselves and the path could differ depending on the manual installation method? In that case, i'm leaning towards going with `/usr/bin/python3` (instead of `python3`) because that is most certain to work right now with the least friction for most users. And update if/when the time comes. Another Side question : In case you know, have we ever considered bundling a python environment with the Alfred app? Since many workflows rely on it? Especially now with the bundling mess?
  3. Hello @designjoe I'm working on this. Here's an updated version of the workflow that uses python3 that seems to be working for me but doesn't work for another user. Would you mind giving it a go? You can follow the progress on this GitHub issue https://github.com/vinaywadhwa/justwatch-alfred/issues/8 @vitor could use some help, if you'd be kind enough to take a look at the discussion in the GitHub issue.
  4. Added support for Microsoft Edge - here you go 🙂
  5. That's what i use. It had to be there 🙂
  6. Thanks! Found the problem and it's fixed. You can wait for the workflow to auto-update (in max 2 days) or get the latest release (1.0.5, for now) from here https://github.com/vinaywadhwa/justwatch-alfred/releases . If you are interested in more details - The "API" this workflow uses (justwatch) sends some bad data for some titles. - The workflow now expects and handles the bad data better in the latest release (1.0.5, just released), all thanks to your report 👏🏼
  7. Seems like the API the workflow uses is glitching sometimes. Are you able to consistently reproduce it for a specific movie/tv-show name? It fails 💯 percent of the times for "unbelievable" for you?
  8. @Bemawr Got some suggestions from the community. Trying to make the most of quarantine time 🙂 Auto-Update is one of the things i added in the 4 updates 🙂 .. So you need to manually update one .. last .. time ! and then it'll auto update forever.
  9. Glad you like it! Feel free to spread the word 🙂
  10. Looks like we solved it. Coool. Thanks!
  11. I learnt that while researching the forums while building this workflow. Pretty cool. Couldn't use it because i was not using the requests library myself. Its a dependency for a 3rd party library this workflow uses. Didn't want to go through the trouble of rewriting the library itself. Also, the total size of my workflow is 1MB which seemed reasonable. Would consider using this lightweight version in the next one. Thanks!
  12. @lari @Bemawr @edbro A new release is out. Hopefully, this shall fix it all. Please get the latest release (1.0.2) from here https://github.com/vinaywadhwa/justwatch-alfred/releases and see if it works for you? Again, thanks a ton for letting me know about the problems. You just might have saved many other users a lot of time and frustration.
  13. @shadyabhi Great. Glad you like it. @Bemawr I guess i missed some other dependency. Still trying to wrap my head around packaging alfred workflows. Noob Alert 🙂 Did you try deleting and reinstalling the new version? That might fix it, since its working for some people? Let me know how that goes. I'll try to figure it out. Maybe @deanishe can help speed things up. Lets see. Watch this space.
  14. Hey, i guess your problem is something else. Could you help me with the error logs? In case you don't know, this is how you can see the logs - https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/utilities/debug/ Can copy paste here, if you can.
