Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. I have a custom Web Search that encodes spaces as hyphens and I'd like to trim whitespace from the beginning and end of the string before that encoding. In this case I'm getting the string into Alfred via a workflow that uses the selection and I sometimes get extra whitespace. I was hoping I could do something like: https://www.dndbeyond.com/spells/{query:trim} but that doesn't seem to work. I think it could be useful to enable the Transform Modifiers in Web Search URLs.
  2. I want a workflow that (via hotkey) brings up the most recent file in ~/Downloads/ with the file action viewer in Alfred 4. The closest I can come is the following. A Hotkey trigger that passes through to the workflow the text "*". That connects to a File Filter input to get a list of files with scope ~/Downloads sorted by Last Modified Date, the smallest Result Limit choice is 10. Then I connect that to the new Action in Alfred action. When I run that I get an Alfred window with the input of * showing the 10 most recent files and I just hit Return to get to the file actions. That's functional but a little clunky. I'd like to not see the * (or even need to pass it) and just send one file to the Action in Alfred action. I think ideally the File Filter would allow a limit of 1. Or there would be some utility object I could put between the File Filter and the Action in Alfred to filter the 10 down to the first object, but I couldn't find one. I know about the old workflow Recent Downloads but I'm curious if this can now be done directly in Alfred's Workflow editor without the need for a script.
