  1. Shawn (the developer of Packal) had a field for a PayPal email or URL (I don't recall exactly). That would presumably require user accounts, though. I don't think donation links for workflow authors is important, but I think you really ought to at least mention the workflow authors. Every comparable site I know, from packagecontrol.io to npmjs.org to packages.debian.org lists the developer/maintainer. Have you tried Vítor's workflow? It's tuned for this forum and the awful, buggy Invision editor. You might get used to it, but I don't think anybody likes it. It's riddled with annoying bugs.
  2. That's a fair point. Still, it seems a bit odd to post a site that you say you don't want to submit your own workflows to. Now I look more closely, I think it questionable that the site doesn't mention workflow authors at all. Every page says "Maxwell Jordan White" but never mentions the people who're providing the content that makes the site anything but completely pointless. Notably, there's also a big "Donate to Me!" link, but none for the workflow authors (which Packal always had). Quite likely an oversight by Max, but all the same, not super cool.
  3. Why did you post the link in the first place, then, if you think it's a bad idea to submit workflows there?
  4. Yeah. In that regard, I'd be much more amenable to a fully-automatic, no-user-input site that just scans for GitHub repos tagged with alfred-workflows. Workflow discovery is definitely a problem (a forum is a pretty crappy format for that), but "here's another site to submit your workflow to" worsens the situation, rather than improves it, even if the site itself is good. The "Awesome Alfred Workflows" list is a different matter, imo, as it's a curated list, not a free-for-all (and importantly, maintained). And given decent curation—and I believe Dave is doing a good job in that regard—there's definitely value in it.
  5. Not really, no. Like I said, this isn't an issue with Alfred. Alfred is getting the bad UTI (dyn.ah62d4rv4ge80g55r) from your system. There's nothing Alfred can really do about that. And if this only happens with folders under your ownCloud directory, then it's most probably an issue with ownCloud (or ownCloud+Mojave). In any case, the output from Alfred's metadata tool (which Vero linked above) might be of some interest/use. FWIW, dyn.* UTIs aren't random. This one means "file extension = com".
  6. Saw that, too. Looks good, but I'd feel much better about it if the gent who built it were at least a forum member. Packal was never official, but it was built in close communication with the Alfred team. Yeah, it's somewhat similar to the frontend I've been planning to build (though my plan includes a spider, not just manual submissions). I've been waiting for Alfred's built-in update mechanism to crystallise, so there's a standard metadata format to work with, rather than having to build a (hit-and-miss) spider.
  7. If this is the case, it might be a good idea to ask on an ownCloud forum. There are doubtless some ownCloud users on this forum, and they may be able to help, but as this problem is related to the system metadata index—not Alfred—you'd probably have more luck finding someone who knows what's going on on an ownCloud-related forum.
  8. Hi @kstoff, welcome to the forum. Nope, I don't think so. I believe this is due to the way the system metadata index (which both Spotlight and Alfred use) resolves the search scope. AFAIK, Alfred's search scope works in the same way as the -onlyin option to mdfind (the CLI version of Spotlight) or Finder's search (in this case). The upshot is that search paths don't cross partition boundaries, so although a global search will find stuff anywhere, once you specify a search path (even /), you will only get results that are on the same partition. That is to say, you currently have to specifically add each partition to Alfred's search scope, just as you would have to add an -onlyin /Volumes/blah for each partition to an mdfind command. You can see the same behaviour in Finder if you explicitly "Go To Folder…" /Volumes (which is hidden by default) and try to search for something. I believe the only solution would be for Alfred to special-case the search scope item /Volumes and explicitly add every mounted partition to the search scope on each search.
  9. I don't think that's necessary, tbh. The new posts in this thread will have bumped it back to the top of the forum, and the Alfred team are almost certainly following the discussion, even if they haven't weighed in yet. If I had to guess, I don't think an option will be forthcoming, but I'd say there's a decent chance of getting ^J and ^K added as additional keyboard shortcuts. Unless Andrew is an emacs guy, of course…
  10. Hi Philippe, welcome to the forum. I'm afraid the answer is "no". Alfred uses the same index as Spotlight, so if Spotlight can't see something, then Alfred can't either. This is something that can only be fixed by the pCloud developers (or by configuring it so the files are stored locally).
  11. Hi @wrthr, welcome to the forum. Advanced preferences in 1Password, not Alfred:
  12. I love flashcards, but I'm a Studies.app guy, I'm afraid, so I don't have any useful feedback. Anki is crazy expensive on iOS
  13. Snippet is good, too. ⌘L directly from the query box? Otherwise, there'd always be the chance to put a script to replace the \n (or whatever) before it reaches the Large Type. I was thinking of escapes as it would make it much easier to edit the query again in Alfred, as it'd be on one line.
  14. Yup. Pasting… I suppose you could also have your script expand escapes, so you could enter \n for a newline.
  15. You can enter a newline into Alfred's query box, just not by hitting the RETURN key.

    Great. Want me to delete these other posts?
  17. Fabio still does bugfixes, but I don't think the workflow is in active development any more. He was studying computer science and has moved on to "bigger" things. As best as I can tell, he's heavily into Smalltalk these days, and that (or Lisp) usually means you're heading for a PhD in computer science.

    Yeah, but they've just changed the text of the links. They still point to www.alfredapp.com/extras/theme/xxx URLs. If you'd like to change the link to say "Download", just edit your post and double-click the link. A dialog will pop up allowing you to change the text.
  19. If I had to pick some things that are never going to happen, Alfred for Windows wouldn't be much further down the list than my baldness spontaneously curing itself.
  20. Hi @John_R_SF, welcome to the forum. You need to use the Replace utility, not the Transform one:
  21. Paste it into Alfred's search box. Do not change it. Just copy it from the grey box and paste it into Alfred and press ↩ That is exactly what the alfred:// link I gave you does.

    You mean post a screenshot?
  23. I see. You want what I originally posted. Copy this and paste it into Alfred: alfred://customsearch/searx.me/searx/utf8/%2B/https%3A%2F%2Fsearx.me%2F%3Fq%3D%7Bquery%7D It tells Alfred to create a search for this URL https://searx.me/?q={query} with the keyword "searx". The {query} is hard to find because searx.me uses POST by default (the query isn't shown in the URL). It also supports GET, though. To find the right URL, I did "Inspect Element" on the search box in Safari to find the name of the search query parameter:
  24. Ah, right. I think I misunderstood your previous comment. I thought you wanted the developer to remove ^N and ^P and replace them with ^J and ^K (as @johnku originally requested), not add an option to change the key bindings.
  25. It's AppleScript. Paste it in a Run Script box with Language = /usr/bin/osascript (AS).
