  1. Gah, I'm a moron. I forget that not everyone does the same thing as me. Specifically I need the id from your custom url, this may be different from both your Profile Name and Login name Maybe that helps? I'll make sure that's better messaged..
  2. DEFAULT_STEAM_LIBRARY is only used to attempt to detect the games you have installed. To get the list of games you own, I actually grab the XML output from steamcommunity.com/id/[your username]/games . Getting whether something is DLC and/or OSX compatible is done by scrapping the Steam store webpages. I couldn't find an easy way to get the list of games you owned from Steam on your machine. Did you do "steam -u [your-community-username]"? Example given: I'm tresni on steam community (i.e. http://steamcommunity.com/id/tresni) so I enter (the first time) "steam -u tresni", wait a seconds while it says "Updating Steam library" then just keep typing what you were looking for. Important note: your community username may be different from your steam login One thing to be careful of, don't backspace into your username. If you want to get rid of it, highlight and delete all of it. Otherwise you run the risk of setting your username to a portion of your actual username, and that just won't work ;-) Maybe I should move the activator onto a separate keyword That way when you press enter while entering stuff (like I do on occassion) you don't fire up the activator
  3. I've done some pretty major updates to this workflow. It's been completely rewritten (mostly in python) and now can detect installed games (in the default Steam Library Folder), if a game is available for OSX, and if the "game" is actually DLC. Additionally it now defaults to only showing you games available for OSX, but can be restricted w/in alfred to only show installed games (use -i) It also now grabs the Steam thumbnail, resizes it to make it fit within Alfred and makes that available too. So, looks prettier, works better, and more options, what's not to love? Grab it of Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/steam
  4. Someone did a pretty major rewrite at one point see: https://github.com/laazyj/Alfred.Plex You should be able to download the Zip file from there, extract it, create a fake workflow in Alfred, right click -> Show in Finder, drag and drop extracted files there. (I've tried renaming the zip to .alfredworkflow and that didn't work, this was the quickest way I could find.) Doesn't seem to work if you have Users configured on plex, keeps saying it can't find the plex server
  5. Something I've definitely thought about. The slowness is due to a number of factors: Size of your game list, implementation in AppleScript (which seems slow to handle XML), internet connectivity, etc. One of these (AppleScript) can likely be dealt with, but I need to do some testing on best possible implementations. If it sticks at "Doing stuff" it's likely that the XML output from steam community barfed and returned an empty list. This appears to happen from time to time and I never built in validation to ignore or retry if that did happen. I don't know of any way to do this today. I've looked into how games are stored on your local hard drive, but right now even offering that filtering would slow things down a lot. Just Mac games doesn't seem possible to be honest, but definitely something I've very interested in figuring out a way to do. Steam doesn't appear to offer an easy way to do this when retrieving your game list, so it would require an extra lookup for every game in your list and some serious HTML manipulation. So, I've left that out, we'll see how things go. Steam does have a newer API that may be usable, but would require OAuth and a potentially a complete re-write. May still be worth it if it offers better performance or more information.
  6. I'm using it almost every day. I'll make sure I have the latest source on dropbox right now though. Using HipChat 2.4 currently.
  7. A remake of my original Alfred Extension for Alfred2. Control Hermes from alfred including some global hotkeys for like, dislike, tired, and station switching/searching. DOWNLOAD
  8. Lets you set your HipChat status via Alfred including custom messages. Only works for the Desktop application. Download
  9. I've taken my Alfred 1 Steam extension and made a workflow for all you gamers. The workflow does a number of things. Start off by giving it your steam username. It will then retrieve your game library from the Steam Community website. Now you can launch games just by entering "steam [gamename]" or selecting it from the list. I've got about 300 games and while the initial load takes a few seconds (~6) subsequent lookups aren't so bad. I am caching the data for 12 hours, but you can use "steamclean" to fetch new data on the next "steam" command. If you don't enter a game name (or you enter an activation code or have one on the clipboard) you can use the "Steam Activator" action to have it automagically walk through the activation of your new code. If, for any reason, you need to reset your Steam username, just do "steamclean reset". Download
