  1. Hello Shawn, We seem to be aiming for the same thing, but I don't think you are get going to get exactly what you want 'quickly' in the forums. You could look at the 'website pop-up' again; I've messaged you a link that is interesting, that shows an example of what it could be used for. I played around with this for a while, and tucked it away for use later. I really do believe that your vision of an addon/helper for Alfred, isn't as well received as it should be; for what ever reason that is, your guess is as good as mine. I think you may resort to xcode in the end; I'm new to xcode, but have stared writing/learning to write my own HUD. In a day, I've only got as far as a nice transparent window of any size, that appears where ever I want on screen. I've added the growl.framework to my HUD.app, and I can send messages to growl from it. But I'm still driving towards a large on screen HUD which can display a lot of formatted info. I need to figure out how to get my HUD app to receive input from other sources, such as Alfred. If you would like to help out, let me know. It may end up being more than just a better 'Large Type', or a helper app for Alfred; lets see. Best Regards
  2. Another alternative using your suggested .md file: /Applications/Mou.app/Contents/MacOS/Mou Math.md & This shows the markdown & the rendered output! I guess this thread is developing into a list of terminal entry viewers, that we can access with Alfred.
  3. @rice.shawn Thank you, this opens up a lot of possibilities (I replied in the other thread, but posting an example here to maintain some clarity) Action > Run Script zsh escaping everything # this will output your query & display it as rendered html echo -n '{query}' > ~/index.html && cd ~ && qlmanage -p index.html #this will display it as syntax highlighted code instead (as long as you have QLColorCode.qlgenerator) qlmanage -p index.html -c .html -g /Users/rootscript/Library/QuickLook/QLColorCode.qlgenerator This thread is turning out to be a lot of {query} output fun
  4. @rice.shawn Thank you, this opens up a lot of possibilities ) @CarlosNZ Here is an example of outputting a {query} and displaying with quicklook. && another example forcing the {query} to use whatever ql generator you have installed: Action > Run Script zsh escaping everything # this will output your query & display it as rendered html echo -n '{query}' > ~/index.html && cd ~ && qlmanage -p index.html #this will display it has syntax highlighted code instead (as long as you have QLColorCode.qlgenerator) qlmanage -p index.html -c .html -g /Users/rootscript/Library/QuickLook/QLColorCode.qlgenerator This thread is turning out to be a lot of {query} output fun )
  5. You guys will probably like this: In terminal try installing 'terminal-notifier': sudo gem install terminal-notifier Then try sending a notification like this: terminal-notifier -message "Test message goes here" -title "Test Title" -subtitle "My nice subtitle" I think this is a VERY useful addition (for small notifications), that we can use in our workflows.
  6. @David Ferguson & @Tyler Eich - Thanks for your suggestions. David, This sounds very useful for big/long notifications. Can you post an example workflow, with a explanation, please?
  7. @CarlosNZ Here is an old xcode project I found that has a little cocoa framework example called: HUDWindow.app (I don't think it uses webkit) hudwindow.tgz @Andrew I appreciate that you guys must be busy with a million different requests. Maybe there is someone (with a little xcode experience) who would be willing to create a little osx app from the supplied code (like the example HUDWindow.app) that will read an output from Alfred and just display it. Anybody willing to help out?
  8. @Andrew, How does Alfred style its Themes then, is that completely different to Large Type; could a 'new' Large Type be created in the same way as Alfred Themes (i have no need to add WebKit, if it already isn't being used). All I'm really suggesting is another popup box (like Alfreds) built the same way, that can display an output like 'Large Type' and 'Post Notification can'.
  9. @David Ferguson | @Andrew All I managed to find was 'Alfred Preferences Defaults.plist' <key>appearance.largetype</key> <dict> <key>autohide</key> <false/> <key>style</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> It would be really cool, if we could change the position, font, and colours; just like we can for the rest of the Alfred Theme. If it isn't too much trouble, could you expose the settings to us?
  10. Need some help getting started with this workflow. Essentially what I need is this: [1] I'll be looking at a website in Chrome, and I would like to see how it will look on an Ipad or Iphone, via IOS Simulator.app (it comes with xcode). [2] I have lots of local index.html files I'm working on. I would like to open the selected file in IOS Simulator to se how it will look on an Ipad. Can anyone, give me an outline of how to achieve these workflows, please?
  11. @Andrew Is the current debug mode available to us?
  12. @twinpeaks I can see where you are coming from. I started using Alfred at v2, so I keep finding links to "Great" Alfred extensions; that are useless to me. At least now with a little effort & some advice from you I can at least extract any applescripts, and switch settings etc... After reading your reply, I think a better utility would be an Alfred (shell script / applescript) extractor. Even that isn't really needed, maybe all thats really needed is a little post explaining how.
  13. @David Ok so I tried renaming the someaction.alfredextension to someaction.alfredextension.zip Extracted it and get a couple of .plist If I open in PlistEdit Pro I can see a bunch of <keys> and of course some terminal commands and some applescript. Surely converting a v1 alfredextension to a v2 workflow could be automated a little?
  14. So if you have a someaction.alfredextension What do you open the .alfredextension with to copy from ? Do you have to have a copy of Alfred v1 to do this?
  15. You can also try this: cd ~/Desktop && mkdir {query} && cd {query} or even standard cd ~/Desktop; mkdir {query}; cd {query}; etc.......
