    mjv reacted to designandsuch in Workflow: Units - convert currency length temperature weight and more   
    A better unit converter
     

     
     
     Download V0.6
    contact thijs@designandsuch.com for questions, bugs, ideas and such
     
    try out the demo
     
     
     
     
    There are more unit converters available. but i didn't like the lack of speed due to the feeds. Thus i redid one myself which calculates everything on your mac. It fetches new currency data once in a while.. that's the only time when a second delay might appear. And in my humble opinion it's already better than all other unit converters around.
     
    I might add more units in the future but so far it has:
     
    - 7 units temperature  ( celsius, kelvin, fahrenheit etc. )
    - 21 units on length  ( km, miles, nautical miles etc. )
    - 15 units on weight   ( kg, lb, etc. )
    - 8 units on time ( days, hours, years months etc )
    - 18 units on digital memory ( GB, MB TB bytes, kilobytes etc )
    - 5 units on speed ( km/h, miles per hour etc.
    - 90 units on currencies ( euro, dollar, pounds, dinar etc. )
     
    that's 164 units
     
     
    It has a nice blind rating system. so the more you choose for one answer, the more it will be likely that that one shows up in the suggestions.  
    Automatic updates from a currency xml file  
    I am working on an automatic update on the whole workflow so i could add new features while you use it. But that is not finished yet.. and i thought.. let's start sharing maybe ill get some nice feedback for possible cool ideas.  
    * designed the icons myself, probably could work some more on those too.  
     
     
    it doesn't need explanation...
    if you'll just start typing
    "5 kilometer to miles..."
    or something you will figure out how it works.

    mjv reacted to andrewning in Reference Importer   
    Reference Importer: search for an article/book from a variety of sources and import the corresponding reference data (BibTex, PDF) into BibDesk, copy BibTeX to clipboard, go to the landing page for the article, or copy a formatted reference. Also supports reference lookup from a PDF file. (This workflow was formerly known as "Citation Search" and "AIAA Search")
     
    (follow link to GitHub for a more detailed README and download)
     
    Update 5/22/2013: added conversion of non-latin characters to proper LaTeX.  also removed default cite-key so that BibDesk can populate citekey with user defined style.
    Update 5/28/2013: fix due to slight change of crossref.org API
    Update 12/4/2013: major update including improved parsing, getting PDFs in addition to BibTeX, Google Books, Google Scholar, reverse PDF lookup.  more details in comments below and in README
    Update 12/6/2013: improvement to DOI parsing from PDF text
    Update 3/15/2014: minor fixes and improvements
    Update 4/2/2014: unicode fix
    Update 4/3/2014: another unicode fix, this one for google books

    mjv reacted to dfay in Case Converter (including Title Case)   
    Updated August 24, 2018
     
    This is now a single workflow -- there are hotkeys for the following five actions:
     
    Uppercase
    Lowercase
    Capitalize - capitalizes all words (e.g. Posting A New Topic In Share Your Workflows)
    Title Case - capitalizes word except for "the", "in", "of" etc. according to American English title conventions (e.g. Posting a New Topic in Share Your Workflows)
    Sentence Case - capitalizes only the first letter of the first word & converts the rest to lower case
     
    All of these are set to Copy to Clipboard and Paste by default.
     
    There's also a script filter cc which lets you view the query converted and select your choice (like the Code Case workflow).
     
    You can also connect a hot key directly to the cc script filter directly to view the output options without typing the cc command and pasting your text.

    2018-02-09: updated link and updated workflow with fix to python workflow library
     
     
    The old version is described below and still available, if anyone prefers it.
     
    Workflow Version:
     
    This workflow converts the case of the text on the clipboard.
     
    http://dfay.fastmail.fm/alfred/Case%20Converter.alfredworkflow
     
    There are two workflows which display the following five options:
     
    Uppercase
    Lowercase
    Capitalize - capitalizes all words (e.g. Posting A New Topic In Share Your Workflows)
    Title Case - capitalizes word except for "the", "in", "of" etc. according to American English title conventions (e.g. Posting a New Topic in Share Your Workflows)
    Sentence Case - capitalizes only the first letter of the first word & converts the rest to lower case
     
    The keyword case will transform the text on the clipboard without pasting the result.
    The keyword casep will transform the text on the clipboard and paste (using Applescript System Events)
     
    Hotkey Version:
     
    Here is a version for use with hotkeys which will operate on the active selection in OS X and paste it with the converted text.  These all have a half second delay prior to pasting, which is necessary for Applescript to be able to paste.
     
    http://dfay.fastmail.fm/alfred/Case%20Hotkeys.alfredworkflow
     
    Notes and Revision History:
     
    These use the Title Case perl script found at https://raw.github.com/ap/titlecase/master/titlecase .
     
    If you manage academic citations with BibDesk, Zotero, Papers, Mendeley, etc., Title Case conversion is especially useful for cleaning up downloaded citations.
     
    Updated May 3, 2013 with nicer colored icon thanks to mjv ( http://www.alfredforum.com/user/4384-mjv/ )
     
    Updated February 5, 2014 to handle Sentence Case and to add a second keyword to paste after conversion.
     
    Updated May 20, 2014 with hotkeys
