    Sridhar Katakam got a reaction from Belfong in Send currently selected item to Alfred   
    I hear you. I am a LaunchBar user myself and use its Instant Send heavily.
     
    My guess is that 80% of Alfred users do not know what they are missing if they have not experienced LB's Insant Send.
     
    Anyway, for now, I have decided to make Alfred the primary launcher (⌘ + Space) and LB secondary (running in the background) just for its Instant Send.
     
    The issue with the KM workaround is that it only works for files, not text.

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to dvcrn in Ability to use macOS services from Alfred   
    I've been recently playing around with launchbar and switch back and forth between it and Alfred. 
    One thing I noticed that is pretty killer in launchbar, is the ability to use macOS services. Launchbar is indexing them by default and lets you use them either with normal text or files. 
     
    A proposal could be:
    Type some text (or use a workflow to get the selected text and propagate the alfred window with it) Hit CTRL Select "Use Service" (or directly suggest them) Hit enter on a service to use them  
    And the same with files. Hit CTRL and propagate the actions window with services that support the file type, next to workflow actions and default alfred actions
     
    I think this would make Alfred a lot more powerful without the need to create custom workflows. A lot of apps (the majority?) already exposes services, and being able to use them directly within alfred would be great. 
     
    For example, some workflows that I manually wrote that would be possible with a service:
    DEVONthink: Add notes or files Delivers: Add a delivery from a text string Fantastical, Cardhop, Things: Add new entry directly from text  
    Screenshot of available services enabled on my system when selecting text:

    @Sridhar Katakam take a look at this workflow object: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/triggers/hotkey/
     
    You can set the argument as the currently selected text in macOS, then configure Alfred to either show with this, or to pass this into the workflow

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to vitor in AlfredBookmarklet — Use a browser bookmarklet via Alfred   
    Run browser bookmarklets from Alfred, without needing to having them installed in the browser itself.
     
    Note that you may need to Allow JavaScript from Apple Events in your Browser.
     
    1

    For the first step, get this template workflow itself. Though this is not strictly necessary (you can build it yourself) it serves as a starting point with most of the work already done. Proceed to open the workflow in Alfred.

    Next, get a browser bookmarklet to convert by copying its link address.


     
    2

    Run :cleanbookmarkletcode to clean the code in your clipboard. It performs substitutions necessary to avoid problems when pasting the code in the next step.


     
    3
     
    Open the Arg and Vars node and paste the code.



    Extra

    If you’re not new to Alfred, you likely won’t need these steps as you’ll know what to do.
     
    4

    The template includes both a Keyword and a Hotkey nodes to run the code. You can delete either one by clicking on it and pressing ⌫.

    If you choose to use the workflow via Keyword, do not forget to set it up.

    List the contents of a directory and act on them. Call the workflow with rdn to sort from the most recently modified, rdo for the reverse; rda to sort from the most recently added, rdz for the reverse.
     


    To act on the selections, use the standard Alfred shortcuts. You can activate file actions, dive into directories, preview files, add them to the file buffer — whatever you want to do that is supported by Alfred.
     
    ⌥↵ opens the selection in Finder, while ⇧↵ clears the cache for rda and rdz.

    By default the Workflow looks in ~/Downloads. Change the value in the downloads_dir Workflow Environment Variable to use a different path, relative to your home directory.

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to caleb531 in Play Song - Quickly play songs, albums, and more from iTunes   
    Introduction
     
    With the introduction of Alfred v2.0, the built-in iTunes mini player is now the only way to interact with my iTunes library in Alfred. However, I would prefer to quickly search for and play songs without entering the mini player first. Therefore, I created Play Song—a workflow designed to make playing songs in iTunes extremely quick and convenient.
     
    Download
     
    Download Play Song (latest)
     
    Usage
     
    Play Song enables five keywords which allow you to search for and play songs in your iTunes library.
    In order for Play Song to function properly, it requires access to assistive devices. You can enable this for Alfred via the Security & Privacy pane of System Preferences.
     
    Playing a song   To play an individual song, use the playsong keyword. Songs whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing a song from the list will play that song once.   Playing an album   To play all songs from a particular album, use the playalbum keyword. Albums whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing an album from the list will play all songs from that album (ordered by track number).   Playing an artist   To play all songs by a particular artist, use the playartist keyword. Artists whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing a artist from the list will play all songs by that artist (grouped by album).   Playing a genre   To play all songs within a particular genre, use the playgenre keyword. Genres whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing a genre from the list will play all songs within that genre (grouped by artist).   Playing a playlist   To play all songs within a particular playlist, use the playplaylist keyword. Non-empty playlists whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing a playlist from the list will play all songs within that playlist (according to playlist order).

    Sridhar Katakam 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).
     
    https://github.com/oderwat/alfredworkflows/blob/master/Last%20changed%20files.alfredworkflow
     
    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)

The error also made the links to the support site and hardware specs site not function correctly. I have corrected this line in the workflow.
     
    PLEASE NOTE: On SOME systems, and even on the current build of Mavericks, the plist file the workflow reads from is protected in a slightly different way. This means the permissions need to be changed on the plist. I have included the Terminal instructions in the 'readme' tab of the Workflow. To access this, load Alfred Preferences, Double Click on the Workflow in the left sidebar "About This Mac", and in the window that pops up, click the Readme tab ... and read!

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to vitor in DownMedia — Download media from popular sources   
    Download media from a plethora of sources, even when embedded in other pages.

    The main commands are dv to download video and da to download audio (often extracted from a video source). Both will present you with two download options, if available: the URL of your frontmost browser tab, and the URL in your clipboard.



    Run any option with the ⌘ modifier, and the full playlist will be downloaded. Use ⌥ and it will toggle adding to WatchList (a separate Workflow).

    Notifications will appear on download start and end.



    To see auto-refreshing download progress, run dp. Actioning it with ⌘ will restart the current download (readding to the end of the queue), while actioning with ⌃ will abort.



    :downmediaservices installs (or later removes) DownMedia actions to macOS Services. This allows you to right click a URL and download from the context menu.



    The Workflow Environment Variables represent the directory to download to, the audio format to save when using da, and the default behaviour of adding a download to WatchList (true or false).

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to Carlos-Sz in Edit with… 4.0 for Alfred 3: A QuickCursor alternative   
    About QuickCursor

    Altough I didn’t use QuickCursor because it was already unavailable due OSX sandbox, I find myself every now and then needing something like it.

    Overview

    You start typing in one application (e.g. a forum post, an email or a script in Apple Editor) then you realize you need a better editor or just want to type using your default text editor.

    The common thing to do is select the text, copy it to the clipboard, open the text Editor, start a New Document then paste the content. After done you have to select the text, copy it to the clipboard then bring the initial application and finally paste the new content.

    It’s not that hard but it can be faster...

    Usage
    in the initial application optionally select some text bring Alfred and type the keyword editwith now select your text editor: just start typing to find it and hit return key the editor will be opened with the text you have selected initially or blank if there was no text initially after writing, bring Alfred and type the keyword pasteback (the workflow will select the text automatically) the previous application will be displayed and the text will be pasted back In addition, the workflow saves the last used text editor so you can easily use it with a hotkey:
    Optionally select text in the initial application Hit the Edit with hotkey labeled “Copy” (the first one in the workflow) After writing hit the second hotkey named “Paste Back”. Done. You can also utilize the keyword pastebbcode so you can convert markdown into BBCode and then paste to the initial application. It can be very handy if you'd like to write a forum post with your Markdown text editor. The conversion is based on Markdown to BBCode workflow. Check the supported Markdown syntax in the workflow help (keyword editwith?).

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to Carlos-Sz in Recent Items 4.3 beta 2 for Alfred 4: Finder Recent Items   
    Overview

    Workflow to display recent Finder files and folders featuring:
    5 default categories 2 custom categories Favorites, including a file action Keywords and hotkeys for Favorites and all categories apart Interaction with Open/Save dialogs and Finder Go To Folder Preview, reveal, open or use Alfred file actions Usage

    Show Alfred and type the keyword rec:



    You can also use the category keyword if you prefer to access the recent files directly, without an initial menu:
    Now: keyword now Folders: keyword fol Applications: keyword apps Documents: keyword docs Downloads: keyword dow Custom Category 1: keyword c1 Custom Category 2: keyword c2 Favorites: keyword fav In addition, there is a hotkey for the keyword rec, Favorites and all categories apart.

    Note that all keywords, as well as the hotkeys, can be changed (go to Alfred Preferences > Workflows).

    Finally, once inside a category you have the following actions:
    Return key: open the file or folder Command key: reveal the file or folder in Finder Option key: pass the file/older path to an open/save dialog or Finder window Control key: add/remove an item to/from Favorites Shift key: preview (Quick Look) the file or folder Custom Categories

    You can set up to two custom categories:
    Show Alfred and type the keyword recpref Select a category to configure and press return key Type an unique category name with at least 3 characters Type one or more (separated by comma) file types e.g.: com.adobe.pdf,public.plain-text To find a file type you can use Alfred Metadata Analyzer.

    To remove a custom category press command key while highlighting one of them in recpref.

    Favorites

    All files or folders set as a favorite item will remain in the list no matter how old they are.

    To add an item to Favorites just highlight a file or folder, hold control key and press return key.

    To remove an item go to Favorites, highlight an item, hold control key and press return key.

    You can also add items utilizing Alfred File Action (accepts multiple files).

    Note that Favorites has also its own keyword (fav) and hotkey.

    Interacting with Open/Save Dialog or Finder

    You can pass a recent file or folder path, or an item in Favorites, to an open/save dialog or even the current Finder window to go to that folder:
    when an open/save dialog is displayed type the keyword rec or any other category keyword find an item (a file or folder or an item from Favorites), highlight it, hold option key and press return key wait a bit so the workflow can load and paste the item path Default Folder

    The workflow remembers the last path used per application. To use the feature just type the keyword df when an open/save dialog is displayed.

    If the workflow was never used for the application, or the path does not exist anymore, then the keyword rec will be automatically triggered so you can select a path from a file or folder.

    There is also a hotkey to make things even faster.

    Make sure to give the feature time to process because e.g. if you hold keyboard keys way too long then the feature may not work as expected.

    What’s new
    Up to 2 custom categories (keyword recpref) Downloads category Keyword for each category Hotkey for each category Multiple files in Add to Favorites file action Changed Auto-path to Default Folder (keyworod df) Changed Just Now category to Now Added Help (keyword rechelp) Update to Alfred 2.3 features Several internal improvements

    Alfred 3 workflow to search and create notes in Evernote.

    Search

    Keywords
    ens to search in every note field ens @ to search in a selected notebook ens # to search notes with a selected tags You can use ent (search in titles only) or enr (search in reminders) or entodo (search to-do notes) or enrec (search notes updated within a week) or enu (search notes with a source URL) instead of ens.

    You can select multiple tags to fine tune your searching. Just add a second hash sign and select or type the tag e.g. ens #tag1 #tag2 :my query

    In addition, you can select a single notebook then tags too e.g. ent @notebook #tag1 #tag2 :my query

    Note that, if you want to select a notebook and/or tags, the query goes after the colon sign as seen above.

    Actions
    Return key to open the note Shift key to preview the note Option key to set a reminder Control key to paste the note text content to the top most application Function key to open the note URL Command key to append text (from clipboard, selected text or typed) or selected file(s) in Finder. After pressing the Command key a new Alfred window will be shown so you will be able to select the text source and the action: Return key will append without date Option key with append with current date Hint: You can also use the Command key to only add tags to a note. To do so, type or select a tag and don't type anything after the colon then select the source "Type a Note" e.g. enn #tag :

    Note that Alfred Fallback Search is also supported (you have to add it in Alfred 2 Preferences>Features>Default Results, then click Setup fallback results button).

    Create

    Keyword enn



    You can optionally type the note title or, for a more complex creation, follow the syntax below:

    @Notebook #tag1 #tag2 !reminder :Title
    @notebook: after typing @ a list of notebooks will be displayed then select one or type it; the default will be used if omitted #tags: after typing # a list of tags will be displayed then select one or type a new one (multiple tags are supported, type each one after a hash sign) !reminder: after typing an exclamation point a list of reminder suggestions will be displayed then select one or type a custom reminder such as in 4 days or 05/01/2014 or 05/01/2014 at 2:00 Title: at the end, after a colon (or the second colon if you are adding time in your reminder) Note that items of the syntax are optional, however the syntax has to end with a colon, with or without typing the note title e.g. #tag1 :

    Note Content Source
    From clipboard From selected text Typed directly in Alfred From Safari or Google Chrome URL From message(s) selected in Mail app From file(s) selected in Finder app: you can create one note with files or one note for each selected files.

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to xtin in Alfred to Skype Interaction   
    Last but not least: Skype! Send messages directly with alfred and call users. You no longer need to use your mouse to chat in skype



    Skype needs to be running for this to work. You should receive a warning from skype, that a programm wants to access its data - accept.

    Commands:
    s - autocompletion from skype contact list, then send message. Also displays last received message.
    sc - autocompletion from skype contact list, call users.
    snew - the 5 newest messages, simply select one for reply.
    sr - reply to last user.

    There is a Contact Action for using the alfred contacts to call skype, simply create a new Contact Action as described here http://support.alfredapp.com/workflows:config:triggers-contact-action and select "Call Skype", if you have saved skype usernames in your contacts as well, they should work too.

    There's also a python equivalent (PyFred) of the PHP Workflows-Script, for those who <3 python over php.
    Rather use this: No need to reinvent wheels http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/403-alp-a-python-workflow-module/
     
    Requirements:
    Alfred, Skype, Python (preinstalled in OSX)
     
    Download:
    http://d.pr/f/cimZ
     
    Known Issues:
    - When you hit enter too fast, a few letters can be cut off. I have optimised what is possible to remedy this, to completely remove it, a feature change in Alfred is necessary. Simple fix, add a space after your message.

    Wishlist/TODO: (decreasing importance)
    - Filter empty Messages. (i.e. if they contained call information that is filtered already)
    - Find user image
    - sr without autcomplete
    - Display status for the users with icon (maybe, if you know a good way to compose images without using libraries that need installation let me know...)
    - Global user search and add
    - More sanity checks: Was update successful, if it fails, why? etc.
    - Clean XML replies from Smilies code etc.
    - sr - directly reply to last person.  - alt opens the chat window. (can't switch current window, but bring skype to front)
    - Call skype # from adress book.

    Changelog:
    v0.3 (http://d.pr/f/cimZ)
    - sr now directly replies, without autocomplete
    - fetches all user images completely
    - shows user status on search, snew, etc.
    - buxfixes for encoding, snew, ...
    - more caching, faster response.
     
    v0.2 (http://d.pr/f/FcIO)
    - Display the history of a chat when replying.
    - New Command sr, to directly reply to a user.
    - If you use sc with an unknown username or directly a phone number, it suggests calling as well as updating the friends list. (must have accidentially removed this, will be back.)
    - Encoding works properly v2
    - Open Skype with alt/enter.

    v0.1.1 (http://d.pr/f/RGTo)
    - Skype startup bug removed
    - More debugging
    - Encoding works properly
    - snew for newest messages
    - Contact Action to allow calling from contacts.

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to surrealroad in Reminders   
    This creates a new reminder in Reminders.app
    Download the latest version, for Alfred v3+ and macOS 10.12+
    For older versions, go here.
    Usage
    To use, just type r <some text> into Alfred.
    For example, r check out some of Alfred's other workflows will create a new reminder called "check out some of Alfred's other workflows".
    You can also include times and dates in the text and have Alfred set a reminder for that particular time.
    r this will capture the current application and turn it into a reminder.
    r help will show some built-in examples.

    Dates
    To be reminded at a specific date/time, simply type a date into the command, for example:
    r today release the hamsters into the wild r tomorrow bring about financial ruin upon my enemies r in 5 minutes drop everything r in 2 hours laugh out loud r on 24/12/13 forget everything I know about things in movies r on 12 June 15 come up with some interesting ideas r on 31-12-99 23:22 panic about the millennium bug r at 2pm wait for nothing in particular r next thursday at 15.30 ask some difficult questions
    Priority
    To set the priority of the reminder, either use exclamation marks right at the start or end of the command (! for low priority, !! for medium priority, !!! for high priority), or type the priority right at the end of the command (these can also be abbreviated, for example mp or p lo). For example:
    r !!! in 2 weeks an important meeting r thursday have a banana medium priority r decide what to have for lunch !lo r make a turkey sandwich p3 Lists
    To choose a list to use on a per-reminder basis, type in <list name> list right at the end of the command, for example r Get Santa outfit !2 in Christmas list. If a matching list can't be found, you won't be able to action the command.
    In all other cases, the default Reminders list will be used (typically the first one). If you prefer, you can edit the defaultList variable within the workflow's Arg and Vars node (note that you'll have to edit this each time you upgrade the workflow however).
    Apps
    Get reminded about the app you're using, for example the selected file in Finder, or the current tab in Chrome or Safari.
    To create a reminder about the active app, simply type r this. Or keep typing to set a date, priority or a custom title, for example r this drop some sick beats on Friday !!!.
    The following apps are currently supported:
    Adobe Acrobat (Pro/DX) Chromium Contacts Finder FoldingText Google Chrome Google Chrome Canary Mail Mailplane 3 Microsoft PowerPoint Microsoft Word Safari TextEdit TextMate Vienna WebKit Apps can be added on request. Just raise an issue with the app you use. As long as it's freely available and has AppleScript support, it can be added.
    Getting help
    r help will display the above examples
    All sorts of combinations are possible!
    Configuration
    If you want to change the default reminder list, edit the variables component at the top of the workflow, otherwise it will just use the first one (unless you use "in Y list" at the end).
    External Trigger
    To call the workflow as an external trigger, use applescript such as
    tell application "Alfred 3" to run trigger "remind" in workflow "com.surrealroad.alfred-reminder" with argument "something tomorrow at 5pm"

    Sridhar Katakam reacted to CarlosNZ in TimeZones - a World Clock script filter [updated to v1.7]   
    Here's another little tool I've just whipped up:
     

    Get an instant list of the current time in various cities around the world. Which you can customize, of course.
     
    Main keyword: tz (for TimeZones) - this just shows the World Clock list (seen above). (Select a city for a Large Type display.) To remove a city from the list - option-select it. To add a new city - timezone add Name of City To update all cities' timezone offset information - timezone update To look up the time in a place without storing it (custom loookup), just keep typing the place name after the initial tz (eg. tz timbuktu) To move the location of your stored city list - timezone move Download v1.7a
     
    This workflow saves a list of your cities and their UTC offsets locally, so the basic world clock will display instantly. Adding new city information is done via an API call to Google Wolfram Alpha. The only downside to locally cached offsets is that there's no provision for automatically updating for Daylight Savings changes, but a manual timezone update will refresh all the cities with their current offset.
     
    Enjoy. As usual, I welcome comments, bug reports, feature requests, etc.

    28 March 2013 - UPDATE to v1.5
    Major rewrite - now uses Google Maps APIs, which should be a lot more reliable and consistent. Flag icons! Bit of eye candy, courtesy of http://www.free-country-flags.com (and managed to squeeze flags for every country in the world into just over 400k - thank you TinyPNG ) More detail retrieved and displayed, including timezone name, country, etc. When doing a full "update", a text file is saved to your Desktop summarising any changes found. General enhancement and tweaks. PLEASE NOTE: Because this version stores its data substantially different to previous versions, it will create a new timezones.txt file with default cities. However, it will attempt to save your old timezones.txt file to your Desktop, so you should be able to rebuild your previous list without too much hassle.
     
    A quick note about the flags: The workflow simply compares the retrieved name of the country and does a simple name match against the workflow's local repository of flag icons. From my testing, it's working very well, but I'd appreciate it if you'd report back if you find any countries that don't properly match a flag icon. Cheers.
     
    ----
     
    31 March 2013  - UPDATE to v1.6
    New feature: Custom lookups. Just keep typing a new place name after the tz keyword to look up the time in a place without saving it to your saved list. Added support for phyllisstein's Alleyoop auto-updater. [EXPERIMENTAL] - support for autocomplete for adding place names (timezone add). You'll need to add a keyword yourself to the script filter if you want to try it out. The reason I haven't enabled it by default is that I've found it kind of slow and I'm not sure it's actually an improvement over the current method. Let me know what you think.
    [Add a keyword to this script filter if you'd like to try it out] Novelty: Added (unofficial) Antarctica flag to flag repository. (Try tz south pole.   ) ----
     
    2 April 2013 — UPDATE to v1.61
    Small fix for Dutch (Netherlands) flag matching.  
    ----
     
    22 March 2014 — UPDATE to v1.7
    City List now always shows in the same order. (Achieved by removing “uid” parameter.) Removed Alleyoop updater. ----


    22 March 2014 — UPDATE to v1.7a
