  1. Favorite folders

    Good. Locking this thread now.
  2. That's exactly the kind of thing I'd use tmux for because it makes it easy to divvy up the screen and run commands in the windows/panes. So yeah, itermocil sounds like a great tool for the job.
  3. Favorite folders

    Then please raise that issue in the workflow's thread. There's nothing we can do about it, and David isn't going to see your post here.
  4. What do you have running in 5 panes? Absolutely.
  5. That service is hardly in great health.

    Where's the toilet gone?

  8. Workflows dont appear in results

    That's what Alfred would do if your sync folder weren't available when Alfred starts. I don't think it would switch folder while running. Perhaps if the sync folder disappeared? Only @Andrew can answer that. If they're disappearing while Alfred is running, it's something else. If the issue persists, you should try turning sync off. Just to see if it is Resilio causing the issue. An awful lot of sync systems do screw up Alfred's files.
  9. Depends what I'm doing. If I'm just running a dev or build server (i.e. it's just a single command), I usually just use an iTerm split (and use the top-half as a normal shell). If I'm running, say, neovim, which will have a bunch of state, like open files and such, I use tmux. It's mostly out of habit: I'm often connected to another machine, where it'd be silly to open multiple connections (iTerm splits), and the tmux session is preserved if the connection drops. It's a different kind of tool. It can be used for similar purposes as iTerm splits/tabs, but also for other stuff. Apart from being able to log into the same session twice (which is a bit more convenient than dragging iTerm tabs around), you can also use tmux to run programs in the background, for example. No. Tmux is basically a terminal, so I just use it from my shell. I have a couple of useful aliases and commands for it. I use fzf a lot in the shell. It does much the same filtering job as Alfred, but better because it uses a fuzzy search algorithm. I mostly use VimR these days for coding. Sublime's bugs are getting on my nerves, SublimeLinter sucks with multiple Python versions, and vim-go is way, way better than the Sublime plugin. I'm not sure I actually use any VimR features that plain neovim in a shell doesn't have, though. What do you use?

    Dude, the icon's perfect. It's just the colour that needs changing.
  11. Convert Video to MP4 - FFMPEG

    Hi, @slackticus, welcome to the forum. I'm afraid that, as best I can tell, the workflow simply doesn't work as it is. The encode File Filter has no scope, so can't possibly find any files. The File Action isn't connected to anything, so does nothing. They should be very easy to fix, though. A couple of additional tips: You should consider adding +public.movie to the File Types of your File Filter and File Action. That way, they'll accept any video file, not just .mp4 and .mov files. You should also consider adding the source code of your workflow to the GitHub repo, not just the exported workflow. GitHub is intended for source code, not finished programs, and having the source there will make it much easier for people to submit pull requests. I would have submitted a PR to fix the above issues, but you would have no easy way to see what I'd changed because there'd just be an opaque zip file, not the lines of code that I'd changed.

    In terms of what it does, but it's how it works that matters here. Your description of the issue closely matches what Alfred would do if its sync folder were not available when Alfred starts: Alfred goes back to using its default folder in ~/Library/Application Support. But it remembers your sync folder, so if it has come back when Alfred is started again later, it goes back to using the sync folder. Using Espionage would 100% lead to that behaviour if Alfred is starting before Espionage has mounted its folders. So definitely check that first. Resilio could also cause issues with Alfred. The data in Alfred's sync folder can change very rapidly, and many sync systems (including iCloud and Google Drive) can't handle that, get confused and screw up your data.
  13. The standard Finder Go To Folder… shortcut ⇧⌘G works in Open/Save dialogs. It's not as good as Alfred's navigation, but no need for the mouse.
