    Very cool thank you!
    I didn´t even know tunlr - what a great service!
    And your workflow makes it really easy to use it
    At the moment the DNS preferences of your/this workflow are wrong.
    But it works perfectly after changing them to
    inside the tunlr_toggle.sh file

    Domenic reacted to Carlos-Sz in Notes with New Text File with Tag 4.0 (nvALT, direct paste, new file in Finder and more)   
    Notes with New Text File with Tag 4.0


    Easily create new tagged plain text files.

    Synchronize your notes by selecting a Dropbox folder as your working folder.

    View your notes, including tags, with an application such as nvALT.


    You can configure the workflow anytime by typing the keyword setup-nft though you will be prompted to do it if it is the first time you run the workflow.

    There are 6 steps.

    1. Select the Working Folder

    Type the name of the folder that you want to save your text files.

    You can select a Dropbox folder to synchronize your files.

    2. Set the Preferred Extension

    In order to make things faster, the workflow adds the file extension automatically.

    Here you can set your preferred text file extension. The default is .txt.

    3. Set the Journal Name

    Journal is a single file to easily add text with current date (default name is Journal).

    4. Set the Date Format

    This setting will be used in every Journal entry, Prepend text to a file or Append text to a file.

    Select a format or use the following variables to build a custom one:
    $m (month as number) $mm (month) $d (day) $w (weekday) $y (year) $h (hour) $n (minute) $s (second) $f (full date and time) 5. Set the Filename Timestamp

    Configure a custom date format, such as $y$m$d$h$n$s, that can be easily added to a filename by using the variable $t e.g. nf #my file $t

    You can build a custom one in this setup step by using the following variables:
    $m (month as number) $mm (month) $d (day) $w (weekday) $y (year) $h (hour) $n (minute) $s (second) 6. Markdown URL ON or OFF

    If the topmost application is Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox or OSX Mail the workflow will append the URL to the new file; to get it in a markdown style select ON.

    How to use the workflow
    Select a text in e.g. Safari Bring Alfred and type the keyword nf Click New File from Text Selection Done! A new note will be created in the working folder, named based on the selected text, tagged with Safari (the topmost application) and with the URL appended to it. See advanced features below.

    Keyword nf? - shows some syntax tips along with access to the Help file (see screenshot below) Keyword setup-nft - workflow preferences Keyword nf - add content (see details below) keyword ns - search content (see details below) Hotkeys - that are 4: create a new note from text selection, create a new note from the clipboard content, add selected text to the journal and bring the search feature Fallback search - you can add this workflow to your Alfred fallback search preferences

    Add content: keyword nf

    Keyword nf overview

    Note: the New File from Mail Selected Messages item is displayed only if the topmost application is the Mail application.

    Here you can find four ways to easily create a new text file:
    New File from the Clipboard New File from Text Selection New Blank File New Note New File from Mail Selected Messages Note: New File from Mail Selected Messages (item 5) will be displayed only if the topmost application is the Mail application.

    In resume, the workflow can create a new text file with content from the clipboard (item 1), from the text selected in another application (item 2), from Messages selected in Mail (item 5) or typed directly in Alfred window (item 4). In addition, you can also create a New Blank File (item 3) that will be opened in the default text editor so you can enter the content right away.

    Although it is not required to type any additional text (items 1, 2, 3 and 5), this module works with the following pattern: tags#filename

    It means that you can enter tags (separated by comma) right after the keyword nf then type a hash sign then type the filename (in New Note the filename and the note itself are the same). For example: nf tag1,tag2#filename

    Advanced features

    Most advanced features are shared by all items displayed by the keyword nf:
    type tags in Alfred window separated by comma e.g. nf tag1,tag2 remove the default tag (topmost application name) by adding a minus sign at the end of the tags e.g. nf tag1,tag2- or nf - add a custom filename by typing a hash sign after the tags e.g. nf tag1,tag2#filename or #filename add a custom filename and extension e.g. nf tag1,tag2#filename.md add the filename timestamp configured in the workflow setup by using the variable $t e.g. nf tag1,tag2#filename $t add a custom timestamp to the filename using the following variables: $m (month as number), $mm (month), $d (day), $w (weekday), $y (year), $h (hour), $n (minute), $s (second) tell the workflow to not append the URL by adding “at sign” at the end e.g. nf tag1,tag2#filename.md@ or nf tag1,tag2@ or nf @ tell the workflow to not add the date in Prepend or Append text features by adding -d at the end e.g. nf #my note-d or #my note@-d hold command key to create the new file in the topmost Finder window instead of the working folder hold control key to prepend text to any file instead of create a new one: a list with your files will be loaded in Alfred so you can easily select it hold option key to append text to any file instead of create a new one: a list with your files will be loaded in Alfred so you can easily select it hold shift key to add text to your journal Mail app special feature

    There are two ways to take advantage of the special workflow Mail feature:
    by selecting a text in an email, bring Alfred, type the keyword nf then select New File from Text Selection. Use this approach if you need only some text of the email. by selecting messages in Mail, bring Alfred, type the keyword nf then select New File from Mail Selected Messages. This is the easiest way to add the entire email content. Along with the text content, the workflow will prepend a short header with the most important information about the email and it will append the message link or URL (clicking it will open the original message in Mail).


    The Journal feature is a single file to add new text with a timestamp (current date). You can set a custom date format in the workflow setup (keyword setup-nft).

    To add a new Journal text:
    Bring Alfred and type the keyword nf Select the text content (from Clipboard, from Text Selection or New Note) Hold shift key and hit return key You can also use the Journal hotkey to easily add a new entry based on text selected in another application.

    Search content: keyword ns

    Search text files saved in the working folder:
    the default search includes text content, filename and tags start with c: to search content only start with n: to search filenames only start with t: to search tags only hold control key to paste the text file content direclty to the topmost application hold option key to add tags to a text file hold command key to reveal the file in Finder hit shift key to preview a text file (OSX Quick Look) hit return key to open a file the first item in Alfred is always “Show in nvALT” (if the application is installed): click it to view the results in nvALT Note that you can tag a file from the search window by holding option key. The workflow will list all openmeta recently used tags so you can easily select one. You can also create new tags separeted by comma e.g. tag1,tag2,tag3.

    Domenic reacted to oderwat in Find files recently changed (similar to Trickster functionality)   
    I often need to do something with my last saved or changed files, like a screenshot or a file I just downloaded with CyberDuck or saved from inside an application.
    Normally I use "Trickster" for that task. It which gives me access to files like recently downloaded, saved or edited files in a quick way but I thought it would be cool to have this in Alfred!
    After a brief check of existing workflows I could not find any which does the same simple task: List files in the current users home which are modified or created in the last 48 hours. The list is sorted descending by modification time. I also made the result list searchable.
    Simply type "last" and it will list the last modified files, you can press space and some letters to filter the results.
    You also can press Return to open the file or CMD+Return to Browse to the file with Alfred (and then use File Actions on it).
    This workflow uses "workflow class" by David Ferguson (@jdfwarrior) to build the resulting xml data. Besides that it uses a "mdfind" shell command which can be enhanced if you want to change where it searches and what it filters from the results (I filter some filetypes which are unlikely to be interesting for me).
    I am supporting Updates by the "Alleyoop" Workflow now (Install that workflow from here: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1582-alleyoop-update-alfred-workflows/)   Feel free to comment!   Last Changed: 2013-04-19 19:06   V1.12: With the new Alfred 2 Update it is finally possible to fix the result order in a supported way (I modified workflow.php to support that). V1.11: Yet another method to fix the result order! Added 'Docoments/My Games' to blacklist. V1.10: Added iTunes to Blacklist (and a rather special personal Blacklist)! V1.9: Fixed problem with missing files when they have the same timestamp. V1.8: Updated to the new way Alleyoop works. V1.7: Changed how files are choosen to include files recently created even if they have an old timestamp. Added Microsoft Office Support files to the blacklist. Added Parallels VM Files to the Blacklist. V1.6: Made the found files in the result list draggable! V1.5: Added Alleyoop Support and fixed another bug with listing order (hopefully the last time now). V1.4: Fixed that the "oldest" entry was always displayed on the top (while the others where in descending order) V1.1: I updated the script to exclude some more files (mysql data, files in ~/Library, Safari Bookmarks)

    Domenic reacted to vitor in PinAdd — Takes arguments as tags, and adds your browser’s frontmost tab as a pinboard bookmark   
    This workflow is officially deprecated in favour of PinPlus. It was released to the public domain, so I leave the record here if anyone is interested. You can still find the old source on Github.
    Before using this workflow, you need to configure it with your Pinboard account by running :configurepinadd followed by your api token and your preferred browser.

    You can get the API token of you Pinboard account by visiting https://pinboard.in/settings/password

    Your preferred browser may be one of Safari, Webkit, Chrome, ChromeCanary, Chromium, or depends (“depends” uses the browser you have as the frontmost window, provided it’s one of the mentioned ones).

    An example configuration would be: configurepinadd username:HSJWJK2HHSKI14QPDOIK safari
    When you’re all set, call pin followed by your tags and/or description — both are optional, and descriptions must be preceded by // (two forward slashes and a space). Pick if it should be added as a regular bookmark or as a private one (this is important, as it’ll trump your default options), and you’re done.

    The title of the bookmark will be the title of the page.

    You can also precede your tags with . (a single period), and it will add the bookmark as unread.

    There’s also a hotkey you can setup to quickly add bookmaks as unread (without any tags or description).
    If adding a bookmark fails for any reason (for example, if the connection drops), you’ll get a notification and a PinAddRetry.command file will be added to your Desktop (if it happens multiple times, it’ll add an entry for each failed attempt). You can double-click this file at a later time to run it, and retry adding the bookmarks.

I am a little worried that by having it compiled for the beta, it won't work for 10.9 and lower but I hope there won't be a problem.
