  1. Thanks for your suggestion, unfortunately this doesn't start Alfred when it's not already running. But it gave me the idea of this workaround: tell application "Finder" to open file "/Applications/Alfred 2.app" as POSIX file and this works perfectly. Thanks!
  2. Hi, I'm posting this in Discussion as it is not technically a bug report (or is it?). I used to start Alfred using AppleScript with tell application "Alfred 2" to launch but this doesn't work anymore. I suspect it's because there is no Standard Suite (with commands such as open, launch, close) in the AppleScript Dictionary for Alfred. Is it possible to bring this suite back in the dictionary? Thanks a lot!
  3. I don't see anything related to Podcasts neither in the initial iTunes MiniPlayer window, but at least I'm able to search for podcast episodes and podcast "albums".
  4. Thank you very much @deanishe for the explanations and the solution you provided, that makes sense and works perfectly!
  5. Hi everyone! For long, I've been launching VirtualBox's virtual machines with the following script, bin/bash being the language selected: VBoxManage startvm "vm_name" In a recent update, it seems that VirtualBox moved the necessary "files" (I don't really know/understand what happens in the background) from /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin. See this topic: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=68825. People there pointed that it might be related to recent security restrictions in OS X (Yosemite, El Capitan). From the Terminal, when I first point to /usr/local/bin, the prev
  6. Hi there! qWorkflow looks like what I was looking for since long, thank you for this! Based on your iTunes Ratings workflow, I'm trying to have Alfred show a list of my calendars, as in the Calendar app. tell application "Calendar" set calendarsList to name of calendars end tell Typing a few letters, I would like Alfred to display the matching calendar names, so as to perform some magical calculations with the one of my choice at next step, using AppleScript again. I assumed the Script Filter should be something like this: # get the workflow's source folder set workflowFolder to do
  7. Thank you fniephaus for this nice workflow, it's very practical to turn off the screen for a movie time! Would you have an idea how to apply to the keyboard's backlight as well? I've been searching a bit, but I don't really understand what I found.
  8. Thanks Vitor, I didn't think about a workflow for this! However, it works only with the latest clipboard element. I was mainly thinking about previous elements, when browsing them from the Clipboard Viewer. Is there a way to access the clipboard history in a workflow?
  9. Hi! I often try to display a piece of text from the Clipboard Viewer in Large Type, using its assigned hotkey (Cmd+L). It seems so natural to me, but it doesn't work. Instead, one have to copy and paste again the desired element in Alfred main window to display it in Large Type. I think it would be a nice little addition Thanks for considering!
  10. So that was just because of this... Then, I'll consider the pull request and be patient
  11. Almost one year has passed but let's try again! Yes, iTunes is running and sharing is enabled. So, results are a bit different today. Here's what the Terminal says: /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:45:in `require': cannot load such file -- alfred (LoadError) from /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:45:in `require' from pair.rb:6:in `<main>' Is something missing from my side?
  12. Hi, I've added to the Google Searches workflow from Vero a "Run Scrip" item, including this: set SafariFullscreenStatus to "" tell application "System Events" try set SafariFullscreenStatus to (value of attribute "AXFullScreen" of first window of application process "Safari") end try end tell if SafariFullscreenStatus is false then tell application "Safari" to activate tell application "System Events" to keystroke "f" using {command down, control down} end if It's UI scripting though, but it works like a charm.
  13. This will probably be useful for very few people (e.g., archaeologists, palaeologists), but as I made this workflow, I share it! It converts BP times (Before Present) to BC/AD years, and reversely. The BC times have to be given as negative years. The result is copied to the clipboard, and alternatively as "cal. BP" or "cal. BC" when holding the action modifier Alt. Download
  14. Hi everyone, I thought few days ago about a workflow I'd like to use. I tried to develop it, but it is far above my skills, that's why I'm asking you. Simply put, I love Mission Control, but I love Alfred more! The idea (pretty simple): the keyword switch for example would list all running app. On return, Alfred would then list the different desktops (including the identifier of the screen in the subtitle field). After selecting one desktop, Alfred moves the window of the app previously selected to the destination desktop. Additionally, the keyword desktop would directly list the desk
  15. Not the case neither on Mavericks with Alfred 2.1, but it appeared with Alfred 2.1.1.
