    Is there a new link? That link appears to be dead. Looks like a great workflow!

    I use them all the time with TE 5.1.4.  Never upgraded to the subscription version but earlier ones (3 & 4 as well) have worked fine with Alfred 2 & 3.

    This is such a great workflow, vitor. Thanks for making such great stuff. I'm now using it for Slicereader. A couple of years ago I wasn't able to get it to work, but the updated workflow makes it magically work. Now, when I want to read an article online, all I have to do is trigger Alfred, type 'read', then Slicereader opens and I can concentrate and read. Now I just wish Slicereader imported GIFs in addition to text/images.

    I was looking at a workflow on your github and was going to ask what theme this was. Very nice!

    Code is now pasted in an Arg and Vars. I figure that’ll be less intimidating that pasting it together with other code, where mistakes are easier to happen. Also added a note on Safari and variants.

    To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days (15 or less) and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.

    Why not use the Snippets feature for that? Seems more appropriate.

    boddicker reacted to deanishe in What custom web searches do you use?   
    Wouldn't it make sense to post the URLs, so that other users could also use your custom searches?
    Double-click a custom search in Alfred Preferences, then "Copy URL for sharing".
    You may have to use Code tags (the <> button) to post them, however, or the forum software will mangle the URLs.
    For example, here's my TheTVDB.com custom search:
    alfred://customsearch/Search%20TheTVDB.com%20for%20%27%7Bquery%7D%27/tv/utf8/noplus/http%3A%2F%2Fthetvdb.com%2F%3Fstring%3D%7Bquery%7D%26searchseriesid%3D%26tab%3Dlistseries%26function%3DSearch Copy and paste the URL into your browser or Alfred to add it.
    EDIT: Apparently, the code tags aren't necessary any more since the URL-encoding bug in Alfred was fixed.

    https://kat.cr/usearch/{query} I also duplicate a couple of built in searches just because  I don't like the keyword. For example, I'm too lazy to type Amazon so I built one that uses "amaz". Same for wx instead of "weather". Mostly I do this because I've used these same keywords for search in Firefox for years. Old habits were hard to break.

    Most of mine date back to my custom sidebar in Opera for Windows, adapted first for OnMyCommand and then to Alfred and OS X services.  The general focus is on searching for academic literature, though more often than not I'll use Andrew Ning's outstanding Reference Importer which lets me import refs. directly to BibDesk.

    boddicker got a reaction from patgilmour in How to start creating workflows with JavaScript?   
    Assuming JavaScript knowledge, how can I start creating Alfred Workflows with JavaScript? I'm not quite sure where to look. I see JavaScript workflow creation abilities were added in the new update. There's not a lot of documentation about how to get started since it's a new feature.

    boddicker got a reaction from drking in OmniFocus Task Actions [Updated to 3.1]   
    Two additions that would be amazing (and probably very tough to implement): 
    1) The ability to press the right-arrow button to drill down and see the full, more detailed task information. Many of my tasks are quite long and cutoff. Of course, I could press enter and open up a new OmniFocus window in order to see the full task. But, it would be very cool if, when in a project, I could press the right arrow to "expand" the selected task, including the notes section. That way I never have to leave Alfred and get I get a really nice large sized view of what I'm interested in. When I'm in OmniFocus I'll have to take out my reading glasses and a microscope. The more that can be achieved without leaving Alfred, the better in my uneducated opinion. 
    2) A way to Mark a task as reviewed from within the Alfred. I'm sure a lot of people don't use this feature, but I use it constantly within a Review perspective in order to make sure my tasks remain relevant.
