  1. The workflow is now live in the Alfred Gallery at https://alfred.app/workflows/firefingers21/linkding-bookmarks/. This should make the installation of updates and jq much easier.
  2. The workflow has been updated and is now live in the Alfred Gallery at https://alfred.app/workflows/firefingers21/whois-lookup/
  3. Oh no!😅 At least a learning opportunity was still had. I await your redemption post, whenever the next instalment of Simple Ideas may be!
  4. @Stephen_C This seems cool, I have a couple workflows myself where I've needed to program hotkeys for specific apps. Does this have any additional function over the built-in Related Apps feature?
  5. @matthewmcvickar It's the way you're encoding the square brackets around "keyword". They should be encoded too, not just the spaces. Leave the encode spaces setting to its default of "%20", and your Search URL should look like this: https://boomkat.com/products?q%5Bkeywords%5D={query}
  6. @vitor Fantastic workflow, I will use this all the time! Just one bug I found, you hardcoded the keyword rather than setting it to your varsearch_keyword variable
  7. @ken luu It's not an Alfred feature, it's an Apple feature of macOS and iOS called Universal links. It lets developers associate web links with a particular app. Another example you may have already seen is with App Store and iTunes links. You'll notice if you try to open the App Store page for TickTick (https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/ticktick-to-do-list-calendar/id966085870?mt=12), it opens directly in the App Store rather than your browser. Or if you do paste that link directly in your browser, you'll see a popup asking if you'd like to open the link with the App Store. Universal links and URL Schemes are both ways for apps to handle content rather than having the OS only load the link in a web browser.
  8. The default browser option opens the URL in the default application for that URL scheme. For example, an https scheme like "https://www.alfredforum.com" will usually open in your default browser, whereas a dict scheme like "dict://forum" will perform a search for "forum" in macOS's built-in Dictionary app. When you change the "Open With:" option to Firefox, it instead forces the URL to open in Firefox, regardless of the scheme it uses. TickTick has their own URL scheme "ticktick://" for which they have some documentation here: https://help.ticktick.com/articles/7055781515422072832#url-scheme
  9. This method only works for pressing the hotkey, not releasing it, as the Hotkey trigger isn't designed to detect the pressed state of individual keys. For that, you might consider a tool like Karabiner-Elements, which I've found pairs very nicely with Alfred. However, this is an advanced tool and is beyond the scope of Alfred and this discussion. I also forgot to explicitly mention in my original reply that the Alfred app should be added to the Related Apps list of the Hotkey Trigger, otherwise you may have trouble assigning the hotkey.
  10. @politicus Try replacing {query} with {clipboard} in your Arg and Vars object.
  11. If you just want a simple one-liner, here's another option: osascript -e 'tell application id "com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred" to set theme "Theme Name"'
  12. @Vero This issue affects the 1Password browser extension on all platforms, as I've just observed the issue in both the Chromium and Firefox browsers as well. I'll be creating a report as well and linking this forum post
  13. @svenko99 Cool workflow! Everything works well, you might want to check your spelling of "Notification" as "Notifitaciton" for the output variable
  14. After some very extensive polishing, it's finally production ready. The Forum post and Github page are live.
  15. Most existing workflows for performing a WHOIS lookup seem to be search wrappers for specific websites. Between the limitations of different sites and the degree of trust needed to use them, a more robust option seemed necessary. As such, I've created a workflow that performs WHOIS lookups with no external dependencies. Supporting both domains and IP addresses, it's powered by the built-in "whois" shell command and makes use of Alfred 5.5's new Text View! What's more, a text file can also be generated for extended viewability and searchability of data. ⤓ Download | Source WHOIS Lookup Usage Perform a WHOIS lookup using the whois keyword. Type the domain or IP address you would like to query. ↩: View WHOIS data in Alfred’s Text View⌘↩: View raw WHOIS data in a text file The Text View will try to summarize important information at the top, then display the raw, unmodified data at the bottom. You can choose which information you’d like summarized in the Workflow’s Configuration. Configure the Hotkey as a shortcut to perform a WHOIS lookup. Use the Universal Action to query URLs from Alfred’s Clipboard History or selected text.
