  1. This workflow gives you quick access to Alfred's own db of recent documents, not OS X's.


    Thanks - that wasn't clear to me. Now I've opened Doc's from Alfred Dave's script is working fine


    Here's a workflow that is based on David Ferguson's and Clint Strong's that merges the OS/X recent documents and Alfred recent documents into one list - http://tedwi.se/u/d9


    It uses Ruby, you MUST install the Ruby sqlite3 gem before it will work:


        sudo gem install sqlite3


    Would love to try this but having an issue with the gem installation. Get the following under 10.8.2


    $ sudo gem install sqlite3
    Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
    ERROR:  Error installing sqlite3:
    	ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
    /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ruby extconf.rb
    mkmf.rb can't find header files for ruby at /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/ruby.h
    Gem files will remain installed in /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/sqlite3-1.3.7 for inspection.
    Results logged to /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/sqlite3-1.3.7/ext/sqlite3/gem_make.out


    Any advice greatly appreciated as I know nothing about Ruby

  2. Unfortunately this flow is not working for me. It appears no documents are returned and I receive the message "No recent documents were found"




    Is there any other way to access the recent doc's database to determine if this is an Alfred issue or Workflow-specific issue?


    Running b131 with the Recent Doc's enhancement and have restarted Alfred as a precaution with no change 


    Edit: Have just figure how to use Recent Docs via standard Alfred method - those show just fine, so suggests my issue above is related specifically to the workflow


    Example for Preview: http://d.pr/i/uG1l


    Edit 2: Update to b133 has not resolved the issue

  3. Yeah, this would be handy. In the meantime, what I've done is taken some of the simpler workflows that just perform one command and put them all in one workflow, like so:


    Helps a little bit with the sidebar clutter. ;)


    In which case, being able to copy and paste objects between flows would be highly desirable

  4. Good call. I hadn't noticed that the underlying dropbox-api library didn't offer support for this. I fixed it and sent a pull request to the original library.


    In the meantime, the workflow has been updated and re-downloading the link above should give you a version that supports getting links for folders as well.




    It seems short links to folders are working, but not the full links - nothing is returned

  5. Permissions!


    Checked out Time & Date code which was identical, but that function worked fine. So had to be a difference between setups for the 2 move scripts. The one in DeskDrawer was not executable so was never being run.


    Fixed the permissions and now all works 


    BTW: Suggest you add a message when testing for and finding an empty return (eg when pressing escape instead of selecting a folder); else you get a notification with no contents
