    paulw reacted to nicooprat in OCR: extract text from snapshot   
    Hi there,
    Just sharing my first workflow. Some OCR workflow already exist but are relying on some obscur chinese API with exposed personal credentials... This one use your system own installation of `tesseract`. Just take a snapshot and paste the text. The script usually takes no more than a few seconds.

    PR welcome.
    Hope it helps!

    p.s. I excluded the warning message by Alfred's utility "Replace" with regex:

    Howdy Paul,
    Thank you for the feedback, I have often wondered if anyone got use out of this particular part of the workflow. So I will certainly take your request into account in future versions. Having just gone through two major releases in one holiday period and exhausting a LOOOOOOOT of Dev time, I don't foresee any major changes (or deprecation of anything) for some time so you are definitely safe for now.
    Also Glad to hear you are happy with it, haha it is a LOOOOONG labour of love.

    Hi, I just configured your complex and amazing workflow. I wonder if it's possible to simply call up a map of an address, rather than always have to look up directions from one location to another?
    I see that I can use the "maps" keyword to look up a map of an address without needing directions between two locations. I also see that the "maps" keyword may be deprecated. I'd like to see the functionality of a non-direction map be kept in the future!

    paulw reacted to vitor in DownMedia — Download media from popular sources   
    Download media from a plethora of sources, even when embedded in other pages.

    The main commands are dv to download video and da to download audio (often extracted from a video source). Both will present you with two download options, if available: the URL of your frontmost browser tab, and the URL in your clipboard.

    Run any option with the ⌘ modifier, and the full playlist will be downloaded. Use ⌥ and it will toggle adding to WatchList (a separate Workflow).

    Notifications will appear on download start and end.

    To see auto-refreshing download progress, run dp. Actioning it with ⌘ will restart the current download (readding to the end of the queue), while actioning with ⌃ will abort.

    :downmediaservices installs (or later removes) DownMedia actions to macOS Services. This allows you to right click a URL and download from the context menu.

    The Workflow Environment Variables represent the directory to download to, the audio format to save when using da, and the default behaviour of adding a download to WatchList (true or false).
    Download | Source
    If on Alfred 3, download this one (works differently).
    If you have an issue, follow the guide for an effective bug report.

    paulw reacted to N00bDaan in Workflow to search Terminal history   
    Hi guys 'n girls,
    As I never can exactly remember all the different commands I'm using in the Terminal, and since I could not find an existing workflow for this, I wrote something small: http://www.packal.org/workflow/search-terminal-history
    Hopefully it is helpful for others too. Might be useful to set the option HISTFILESIZE=10000000 in your .bash_profile if you want to retain history longer than the default 500 lines.

    paulw reacted to CarlosNZ in TimeZones - a World Clock script filter [updated to v1.7]   
    Hi Paul, hope you've figured it out by now, but you'll just need to run "timezone update" on the workflow to force it refresh its local offset database. It should show the correct time (DST or normal) after that.

    Hey Nick,
    Turns out a DFX workflow was a bloody marvellous idea (at least that's what I think). It's the best source of recent folders/favourites by far.
    As a result, I've updated the workflow to be what I consider a "proper" workflow.
    Basically, it now talks to DFX in the background, so it will be waaay faster, and I've also turned on auto-updates (at least partially).
    Please download the new version from the URL above.
    And thanks for the great idea!
    Let me know if you have any more splendid ideas to improve it.

    paulw reacted to rice.shawn in Packal Updater   
    I forgot to mention, if you have Alfred Cron installed, the workflow will give you an option to install a script that will check for workflow updates once per day. You can easily change the timing by editing the job after "installing" it into Alfred Cron.
    If it finds any updates, it will notify you via Terminal Notifier. If you click the "show" button on the notification, then it'll show you the updates.

    paulw reacted to rice.shawn in Packal Updater   
    Glad it fixed it.
    Open the GUI. In the status tab, you should see "xxx workflows can be downloaded from packal" or something. If you don't see that, then all that are possible have already been downloaded from Packal. If you do see that, click the "details" just below that, and you'll see a list of them. If you click any of those workflows, then it'll open the workflow page on Packal in your default browser.
    I have some commented out code in the workflow to have an option to "force packal" — the wording is terrible, which basically will automatically re-download all of the workflows that are available on Packal but you haven't downloaded from Packal yet. I haven't gotten in working in a satisfactory way for me to have it implemented, so I figured I'd delay that feature for now. Currently, it's too aggressive for my taste.
