    tschoof got a reaction from Lecter in URL, Page Title and Selected Text Copy and Paste   
    The workflow takes the url of the active safari tab, and copies it to the clipboard.
    If you want it also throws the the page title in there. 
    If you have selected some text, it tries to recognize that and takes that instead of the page title. 
    It also can directly paste that whole string.
     
    That's it. Tremendously helpful for IM conversations or as a starting point for a Tweet.

    tschoof reacted to joehave in Custom date/time formats for snippets   
    I frequently use a specific date format that's not able to be achieved using the dynamic placeholders for snippets (without changing my system date formatting) :
    https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/clipboard/dynamic-placeholders/
     
    Specifically, I prefer to have yymmdd as a snippet (it's a compliant file name without punctuation and sorts naturally).
     
    When making sure I wasn't filing a duplicate, I came across a different but related request, just for the year:
    http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1021-snippet-year-placeholder/?hl=%2Bdate+%2Bsnippet
     
    So my request is that of enabling more granular date formatting... perhaps breaking it into components such that I might be able to use:
    {year:small}{month:small}{day:small}
     
    Actual tag names aren't as important as the functionality, so something already known and documented would be more flexible, such as Python's strftime's spec:
    https://docs.python.org/2/library/datetime.html#strftime-and-strptime-behavior
     
    ie:
    {date:'%y%m%d'}
     
    That would make me so happy.

    tschoof reacted to davosian in Custom Dynamic Placeholders in Clipboard Snippets (v3)   
    In light of replacing other text expansion tools with Alfred, I am missing two features in the beta version of Alfred 3:
     
    I need the feature of having a text entry field after having triggered a snippet so that I can fill in missing information "at expansion time", e.g. a snippet like "Dear {name}, ..." should allow me to enter a replacement for {name} during expansion of the snippet. There is support for dynamic placeholders, but it seems that this is only for date, time and clipboard and not for "on expansion time" values since they would require a UI to enter the missing values.  
    Here is an example from another implementation (Dash):
     
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ztnzp22reoa8b9l/Sample_custom_dynamic_snippet.png?dl=0
     
     
    I need (basic) rich text snippets which allow me to format parts of my snippet in bold, as list item etc. It looks like I can format the complete snippet as a whole only as of now.  
    I am really looking forward to the next iteration of the snippets feature.

    Thanks.  I've tweaked the title/URL scripts to produce Markdown links instead -- replace the first tell block in each with
    tell application "Safari" set theURL to URL of front document set theTitle to name of front document set selectedText to (do JavaScript "(''+getSelection())" in document 1) set myCount to count (selectedText) if myCount is greater than 0 then set the clipboard to "\"[" & selectedText & "\"]" & "(" & theURL as string & ")" else set the clipboard to "[" & theTitle & "](" & theURL as string & ")" end if end tell

    Hi guys,
     
    just a very basic one: This workflow opens a new Byword document via a hotkey or the keyword ‘newdoc’.
     
    In case you don't use Byword, it should be pretty easy to modify for your own needs.

    tschoof reacted to edc1591 in Add songs to iTunes Up Next   
    Hi all,
     
    I've been getting lots of requests to update this workflow to make it compatible with Ruby >=2.0 which is what's been shipping with the past couple releases of macOS. Well, I took some time this week to finally do it and also added a few new features.
     
    Results will now show their album art, and the pairing process has been improved. You can also now search by artist name and album title. I've also renamed the workflow to iTunes DJ (reminiscent of the original queuing feature in iTunes).
     
    See the README on Github for more info and download links.

    ORIGINAL POST
    -------------------------------------------
     
    Hey Guys!
     
    Up Next is one of my favorite features of iTunes 11, but adding songs to it can be pretty tedious. That's what this workflow tries to fix.
     
    You can search for songs right in Alfred and quickly queue them to be played in iTunes!
     

     
    The source is available on Github. Feel free to fork it and submit pull requests.
     
    Here's a download of the workflow that you can import directly into Alfred.
     
    This workflow works similarly to the iOS Remote app. Because of this, it needs to be paired with iTunes before you can use it. To do that just follow these instructions:
     
    iTunes must be open to complete the pairing process. Invoke Alfred and type pair followed by a 4-digit numeric pin number and hit enter. Switch to iTunes and click the devices button in the top right. Then click on Alfred in the devices list and enter your 4-digit pin.  
    Now you're all set to start queuing songs! Just type "next" followed by the name of a song and Alfred will search as you type. Then just hit enter on the song you'd like to queue.
     
    Enjoy!
     
    Known Issues:
    Searching can be slow for large libraries Can only search using song titles, not artists or albums
