  1. Sorry about that--I updated the link.
  2. To make a long story short, I updated a workflow. It has a long action that is done by an Alfred Script object in AppleScript. In certain cases, I want to do some of the work via a python script rather than in AppleScript. To do this I added the following which checks a variable already set and if so tries to run a python script I put in the workflow folder. (The argument passed is encapsulated in quotes) --check if online and if so, use Python. if contents of online is "online" then --run script to put passage onto the clipboard do shell script "python ./get_verse.py \"" + passageRef + "\"" --paste the passage into the current app keystroke "v" using command down else The réponse I'm getting back in Alfred debugging is: [2019-01-16 15:18:30][ERROR: action.script] /Users/samuel/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Scripts/27C48708-2D1A-4008-BCBF-CCABCD6247DC:801:811: execution error: Can’t make "python ./get_verse.py \"" into type number. (-1700) This tells me it's not executing the python script. I'm sure there's something simple here I'm missing but cannot figure out what it is.
  3. Thank you! It's a solution I found that seemed to work reasonable quickly. If there's a better option I'm open to it.
  4. I have a strange problem I am trying to solve. I must be missing something because this should be quite simple. I have a script to check and see if the computer is online. Here is the script: echo -e "GET http://google.com HTTP/1.0\n\n" | nc google.com 80 > /dev/null 2>&1 if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then echo "online" else echo "offline" fi After this I have two filters. One filter checks if the value is online and the other checks if the value is offline. The problem is when I run the workflow it always stops at the filter and does not continue. I ran Alfred in debut and here is what I see: [2019-01-10 07:38:49][action.script] Processing output of 'utility.filter' with arg 'online ' [2019-01-10 07:38:49][action.script] Processing output of 'utility.filter' with arg 'online ' It appears to me that there is an extra new line after "online" which would explain why the filter is not successfully completing. However, I cannot see any reason why an extra new line would be inserted? This seems like it should be something very simple so I must be missing something but I cannot see what it is.
  5. I found the bug fix for tags with spaces. In the script that is run by the Bear Search Tag trigger to open Bear, the first line of the script is: orig_query={query} It needs to be changed to enclose {query} in quotes otherwise any tag with spaces in it will fail. Here is what the corrected line should be: orig_query="{query}"
  6. I'm not sure if anyone else has run into this, but it seems like the ability to open a tag in bear does not work if a tag has spaces in it. I'm guessing something's not getting encoded properly somewhere?
  7. I had created a Bear workflow to automate a few things and this workflow adds some really helpful functionality. Thank you
  8. Playing around more with Script filter looks like it will work. I think I can capture the input plus set a variable for which option a user clicked so I should be able to do it all in one step.
  9. Right--My question is how I can capture an argument at the same time as giving the user three selections to choose between in one step.
  10. Here's what I want to do: User selects an option in a script filter. That passes them to a second step which is a list filter where they can make a choice and optionally enter a second argument. In my case what I want to do is let someone enter a search parameter in that second step. So the second step is a list filter that gives them three choices: search, search in a new window, search in a new tab and allows them to enter a search parameter. My problem is that anytime you enter an argument in a list filter it filters the options if that makes sense, but what I want to do is let someone enter a parameter that is passed along the workflow but have a choice of how to action that parameter. I realize I could easily do this by using modifiers (shift, fn, etc) but I'd rather make it more obvious by picking the option out from a list. I haven't created it yet or I would attach the workflow--I'm looking for input on how to do this.
  11. I tried that and I can build the JSON when I run the AppleScript in Apple's script editor, but when I tried to run it using Alfred, I get the message: execution error: System Events got an error: Can’t get path of file of application process "Safari" Here's the AppleScript I'm running: on run argv tell application "System Events" set runningProcesses to (every process whose background only is false) end tell set alfredJSON to "{\"items\": [" repeat with runningProcess in runningProcesses set appName to name of runningProcess set appPath to path of file of runningProcess set alfredJSON to alfredJSON & "{\"uid\": \"" & appName & "\", \"type\": \"default\", \"title\": \"" & appName & "\",\"subtitle\": \"\", \"arg\": \"" & appName & "\",\"autocomplete\": \"insert passage\", \"icon\": { \"type\": \"fileicon\", \"path\":\"" & appPath & "\" }}," end repeat set alfredJSON to alfredJSON & "]}" return alfredJSON end run Here's a link to the workflow. I'm using Alfred 3.6 and Mac OS 10.13.3
  12. I have a workflow where I want to provide a list of applications so that an application can be selected and the workflow continue. I want a list of the current running applications so I'm using a Script Filter. My question is how can I load the icon of the app to show it in the list rather than the icon of the workflow? I can't seem to find out how to programmatically load it. Here is the AppleScript I'm using with the Script Filter: on run argv tell application "System Events" set runningProcesses to (name of every process whose background only is false) end tell set alfredJSON to "{\"items\": [" repeat with appName in runningProcesses --set appName to name of runningProcess set alfredJSON to alfredJSON & "{\"uid\": \"" & appName & "\", \"type\": \"default\", \"title\": \"" & appName & "\",\"subtitle\": \"\", \"arg\": \"" & appName & "\",\"autocomplete\": \"insert passage\"}," end repeat set alfredJSON to alfredJSON & "]}" return alfredJSON end run
