  1. You need to visit the releases page and look under “Assets”.
  2. Like it or not, this forum is the official place of discussion for Alfred. I have no desire to go against that and split the community further. It would be particularly nonsensical for me to do so—I already spend quite some time on this forum helping users, so opening yet another avenue to manage would mean fielding questions and duplicates in different places. That would be a lose-lose situation. There’s no platform where everyone will be happy. I’m only looking for something to host the occasional open-hours. It should not exist between those. I’ve only opened Discord
  3. Rather, it hasn’t happened yet (only unofficially). Though I’m still very much interested in doing these, it’s the logistic that’s proving hard. As I’ve mentioned on the top post, hosting open hours is something new to me as well, so it’d help if I got answers to the questions above: Right now I’m looking for recommendations for a platform that will allow us to do it. Whereby (formerly appear.in) is the top contender, despite its limitations. At this point, I think I should just try anything, see how it goes, and iterate from there. It’s unlikely I’ll do it in Jan
  4. Because the problem isn’t Alfred-related, you should ask somewhere else more general, like Ask Different. After you get the code, we can help you make the Workflow if you need it. I’ve done a quick search for “applescript display mirroring” and found results. I haven’t tried any of them, which is why I’m not linking to anything specific.
  5. Welcome @mikarv, Haven’t tried it on Big Sur, but no reason it shouldn’t work there.
  6. Then that shortcut is something specific to you and your setup. You need to find out what it is before anything can be done about it in Alfred (if it’s worth doing at all).
  7. This sounds like the shortcut set in System Preferences → Keyboard → Shortcuts → App Shortcuts → All Applications → Show Help menu. But on Mojave, I also cannot reproduce that warning.
  8. By design, as is also explained in the post. If you’re able to code the Workflow (or understand it after having access to it), you should also be able to figure out the missing piece: the API URL which can be retrieved with the browser’s developer tools by inspecting the network traffic when performing a search. I no longer have an Instagram account (only tried it briefly) and they’re pretty hostile about getting your data nowadays (even more than before) and don’t let you look at anything without agreeing to data collection, so I have no desire to rebuild the Workflow. But I’m not opp
  9. You’re trying to use a Snippet Trigger and a regular Snippet at the same time? That’s incredibly confusing. Use either one or the other. When asking for help with a Workflow, please upload it somewhere as we can’t properly help you without access to it. Debugging can already be hard with access to the code, and you’re asking us to guess yours from a description. There are multiple places where your code or Workflow setup may be going wrong. Without looking at it we’re shooting in the dark.
  10. If you read the post, you’ll see I’ve explained how it’s done. Yes, it’s straightforward, but you can’t do it without coding.
  11. That’s weird, because I’m using diskutil mountDisk, which per the documentation should Mount an entire disk (all mountable volumes). You can verify that on the Workflow’s Run Script and may want to play with it to see if you can get the desired result. Running diskutil on its own on a terminal will give you the available commands.
  12. The dependency was valid, only outdated. Sometimes even the latest version of youtube-dl can’t download a URL, or it may be an invalid website, or something else. Plus, you may be using a self-managed youtube-dl (brew) or the one the Workflow provides. It’s a lot of cases to consider with finicky solutions. I’m open to discussing specific solutions, but I think all of them would have to go through linking to a document with all cases. Thank you for the kind words.
  13. Of course! I hadn’t recognised you due to the default avatar but now I see the name. Agreed, though in this case it shouldn’t be problematic and I’m unsure if there’s a better solution. You could use AppleScript to tell Alfred to quit and open again, but I haven’t tested if that triggers the reload, and it may kill Workflows running at the time.
  14. You can use AppleScript (which you must already be using to add the comment; what’s your solution?) to tell Alfred to search for reload and press ↵. From a terminal: tell application id "com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred" to search "reload" tell application "System Events" to key code 36
  15. Terms are meaningless if you’re being malicious, as is asking the person you have concerns about. They could simply lie in both cases and there’d be nothing you could do. @hgoeldner The code for this Workflow is open; @vdesabou has been on these forums for years; the Workflow’s thread has 20 pages; and the GitHub repository has some popularity and outside contributions (though small) which indicates that at least a few outside people have looked at what it does. I haven’t looked at it myself, but all of the above are strong indications that you’re probably safe to trust it, just as
  16. We can’t answer that unless you upload the Workflow somewhere for us to inspect it.
  17. Here’s a simple Workflow to do what you want. It’s pretty bare, in that it doesn’t show the volume’s name or size (it’s a quick semi-hackish solution which parses the human-readable output of diskutil instead of the plist), but unless you have a ton of external disks connected at once, it should fulfil your immediate needs.
  18. Should be fixed in the latest version. Try it again. That shouldn’t be necessary. That’s an Electron issue, and one I cannot reproduce. Are you on Big Sur? It has been reported to screw up some apps downloaded inside zips in certain cases. Try the Workflow’s method.
  19. Steps to reproduce: Make a Terminal Command Action.Type a command, but intend the first line one or more spaces.Save.Open the Terminal Command Action.Note the indent on the first line is gone.If multiple empty lines were added at the top, those too will have been stripped. This looks to be on purpose, but I’d argue it’s unexpected behaviour. Having leading spaces isn’t an issue to run a command, but not having them might be inconvenient. Use case: prefixing a command with spaces is a common shell function to say “ignore this from history”. I have a few Terminal Command Actions
  20. Welcome @scottmiller, I’ve been using it for 8 or 9 years. I don’t remember if I used it during versions 0.x, but I do remember first buying a license during version 1. A short time after that version 2 was released, then I registered on the forum, then I started sharing my Workflows and kept coming back.
  21. Typically it’s a matter of reading both dictionaries and making some deductions, as it’s not necessarily straightforward and will require some poking around. The closest I have to an example is grabbing the URL and title of browsers in both AppleScript and JXA. And in Alfred tell application id "com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred" to run trigger "TRIGGER" in workflow "WORKFLOW ID" with argument "ARGUMENT" Becomes Application('com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred').runTrigger('TRIGGER', { inWorkflow: 'WORKFLOW ID', withArgument: 'ARGUMENT' }) So you can see the similarities, but the
  22. Thank you, but that makes it a no-go for me. I go to great lengths to avoid external dependencies, especially Python ones as those are the ones that always crap themselves when I need them. That’s a common sentiment, and I never understood it. There’s nothing about Python that makes it particularly suited for Workflows over Bash or any other language that ships with macOS. I would even argue Python is the worse choice because it’s stuck at an old version. Still, thank you for the recommendation and I appreciate you taking the time to write the examples. They m
  23. I’ve been following this one attentively. This is also something I bump into, and my particular wish would be for Script Filters which just show updating information and aren’t actionable (valid:false) to be easily latchable. Tangentially, before I spend the time researching, does anyone have a preferred method to ignore stuff from Alfred via the command line? Be it the equivalent to adding to Spotlight’s Privacy panel or adding alfred:ignore as a comment, or something else.
