    Jono got a reaction from Chris Messina in Alfred 4.5 Beta + Hyperkey == insane productivity   
    I've used Karabiner Elements in the past, as well as BTT but for some reason the Hyper Key was always buggy (hit and miss) with them.
     
    Just tried this and it works a charm, thanks!

    Jono reacted to Chris Messina in Alfred 4.5 Beta: Take a first look at Universal Actions   
    It occurs to me that Quicksilver's Radial Menu Actions UI would be a pretty sweet solution here... i.e. make a selection (or not), tap your Universal Action hotkey and a menu system like this could appear on top of the selection (obviously modernized):

    Jono reacted to Chris Messina in Alfred 4.5 Beta + Hyperkey == insane productivity   
    I'm a fan of Ryan Hanson's apps, including Charmstone and Hookshot. He's recently released another app called Hyperkey that is insanely useful for Alfred 4.5's Universal Actions.
     
    Specifically, I use Caps Lock as my Alfred activation key. I previous used Karabiner Elements to hook up F19 to Alfred, but discovered that it was overkill for this simple use case. 
     
    Hyperkey allows me to map Caps Locks to F19 as my Hyperkey, and then F19 to Alfred without all the deep system modification:


     
    Here's the crazy awesome tie-up between Alfred 4.5 and Hyperkey: if you include "shift" in your Hyperkey setup, you can now activate Alfred 4.5's Universal Actions by pressing shift and then Caps Lock... easily the easiest keyboard combo you can imagine.
     
    Of course, would be cool if Alfred enabled this natively, but meanwhile, pretty stoked about this!

    Jono reacted to Chris Messina in Better theme support for dark icons?   
    The Feather Icons are released under MIT license, although there are only 286 compared with SF Symbols's 2400. Are you open to using Feather icons?
     
    Also, Apple states:
     
     
    So as long as Alfred isn't using them in "app icons, logos, or any other trademark-related use", this implies that use in interfaces would be fine, since they "shall be considered to be system-provided images". Given that Alfred already uses many system-provided images, using SF Symbols seems an extension of that existing behavior. For example:
     

     
    Again, my goal/intention is to make it easier for Workflow developers to support Light and Dark Appearances. Of course we can leave it up to each Workflow developer to source their own icons for each appearance mode, and trust each to do a good job selecting consistent icons, but this seems like overhead that many Workflow devs would possibly prefer to avoid, if possible.
     
    I suppose I'm biased to making it easier for people to make Workflows that offer good looking interfaces in both light and dark modes with less effort. Is that also something that you are interested in, or not so much?

    Yeah, I’ve never liked these. They don’t look too ‘Mac like’, and they’re also looking dated. 
     
    I think it would look much better if they used the SF Symbol icons. They would already cover most of what Alfred needs, and look more in keeping with Big Sur.

    Jono got a reaction from Chris Messina in Alfred 4.3 Pre-release: Big Sur Theming Improvements   
    I'm wondering if what I'm wanting to achieve is possible 🤔
     
    Here's my current theme
     

     
     
    I was wanting to make the horizontal line at the top (just under the search field) a different opacity to all the others below it, and also full width like Spotlight.
     

     
    Is that possible?
     
    …also, the background colour for the selected text seems pretty high at the top. Is there any way to reduce that? 🙂

    Jono reacted to deanishe in Help with shell script workflow   
    {query} in the Notification is replaced with whatever you echo from your script. So if you put echo in the loop, it'll show all the destination paths.

    The simplest solution is probably to put echo -n "${fileName}" after done (the -n tells echo not to add a newline), and then select the "Last path component" option in the Notification's configuration.
  8. Thanks
    Jono reacted to vitor in Help with shell script workflow   
    for theFile in $@; do Make it
    for theFile in "$@"; do Or arguments may re-split on spaces. Even if Alfred takes that into account, it’s a good idea to do so anyway.
    outputFile=$"$HOME/Desktop/$fileName.jpg" What’s the first $ for? And use curly braces around variables, like you do in the rest of the script.

    Also, I recommend you use the long form of flags in scripts (-s → --setProperty), as you’ll understand them better later on.
    outputFile="${HOME}/Desktop/${fileName}.jpg" Finally, note that with the current implementation you may be overwriting files, which you likely want to avoid. This version will append a random number to end of the file name if the file already exists.
    for theFile in "${@}"; do fileName="$(basename "${theFile%.*}")" saveDir="${HOME}/Desktop" outputFile="$([[ -f "${saveDir}/${fileName}.jpg" ]] && echo "${saveDir}/${fileName}-${RANDOM}.jpg" || echo "${saveDir}/${fileName}.jpg")" sips --setProperty format jpeg --setProperty formatOptions 100 "${theFile}" --out "${outputFile}" open -a ImageOptim "${outputFile}" done

    Jono reacted to andreas.w in Search and add bookmarks to Raindrop.io   
    This is a workflow for searching and adding bookmarks to Raindrop.io.
     
    To search your Raindrop.io bookmarks, open Alfred, type r, space, and then your search query, and the results will show directly in Alfred so that you can select one and press enter to open it in your browser. Raindrop.io collections and tags will also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with a search. If a web browser is the frontmost app when you open a bookmark from this workflow, it will open in that browser. If you are working in another app, the bookmark will open in your default browser. Hold the cmd-key to view the URL for a bookmark. Hold the ctrl-key to view the description for a bookmark. Hold the option-key and press enter, or use cmd+c to copy the URL instead of opening it in a browser. Hold the shift-key and press enter to open the permanent copy that is stored at Raindrop.io (Requires a Raindrop.io Pro subscription to work) Press enter before you have started typing a search query, and Raindrop.io itself will open in your active web browser. To add a new bookmark to Raindrop.io, there are two ways to get the actual bookmark you want to add into the workflow. The primary way is to first make sure that you have the webpage you want to add opened in a browser and that it is the frontmost window, and then open Alfred and type ra followed by a space. The alternative way, which only works if the frontmost application is not one of the supported browsers (as the primary method will be used then), is that you first copy an address that you wnant to add as a bookmark, and then open Alfred and type ra followed by a space. In the second step you get to change the title that the bookmark is saved with. Hold the cmd-key to save and skip the tag adding step. In the third step you get to add tags to your new bookmark. You can either simply type them out, or select from a list of tags that matches what you have started to type. Separate multiple tags with comma. Hold the cmd-key to save when selecting a tag in the list, and skip the option of adding more tags. The Firefox support for adding bookmarks was made possible with the help of deanishe's great workflow Firefox Assistant, which needs to be installed in Alfred for the Firefox support to function. Get it here: https://github.com/deanishe/alfred-firefox If the workflow is not authenticated with Raindrop.io when you initiate it, you will be taken to the authentication process. To set keyboard shortcuts, go to the "Search Raindrop.io" workflow in the Alfred preferences and look in the top left corner, where you can set keyboard shortcuts for searching Raindrop.io, or for adding bookmarks. To change other settings, go to the "Search Raindrop.io" workflow in the Alfred preferences, and click the [𝒙] button in the top right corner, where you get descriptions of the options in the information view to the left, and set the options by changing the value of the variables to the right.  
    One special thing with this workflow is that it detects if the topmost window is a browser window, and then opens the search results in that browser.
    So, if you are currently working in Firefox, your bookmark will open in a new tab there, and if you are currently working in Safari, or in Chrome, the bookmark will open there instead.
    If the topmost application is not a browser, the bookmark will be opened in your default browser.
     
    This makes this extension perfect for those who use more than one browser. You can always open bookmarks in the exact same way, and still have them displayed in the browser you are currently using.
     
    The supported browsers are: Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Brave, Vivaldi, Opera, Chromium, Chrome Canary, Safari Technology Preview, NAVER Whale (and SeaMonkey and SigmaOS, but only for opening bookmarks)
     
    This workflow is compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra and newer, and doesn't have any other external requirements (other than for Firefox bookmark adding support, which the workflow will tell you about if you need it).
    The reason for not supporting older versions than High Sierra is that Go 1.17 doesn't support older OS versions.
    You can still run version 1.7 of this workflow on older macOS versions if you need to be able to do that, as all versions of this workflow prior to 2.0 is based on PHP and Python rather than Go.

    Changelog
    2.0.4: Bug fix
    2.0.3: Bug fix
    2.0.2: Adds the ability to directly open Raindrop.io's permanent copy of a bookmark by holding shift and pressing enter while a bookmark is selected in the list. This feature requires a Raindrop.io Pro subscription to work.
    2.0.1: Adds the ability to show more and better information if the authentication against Raindrop.io fails.
    2.0: Version 2.0 does not really look or behave as different as the version bump might indicate, but almost everything has changed underneath to make this a better workflow:
    Rewritten in Go, so no dependency on PHP or Python anymore. This is important, as Apple is removing PHP from macOS 12 Monterey, and will also remove Python from macOS in the future. It's faster! Running the backend of the workflow as a compiled binary (Go) instead of a script (PHP) makes it faster, and it is also compiled as a universal binary, so it's running natively on both Apple Silicon and Intel Macs, but there are also some other changes that helps to make it faster and you will probably notice the difference if you used the old version before. Less risk for unexpected behaviour that leads to bugs, both because it can't behave different depending on which PHP or Python version you have anymore, but also because it now for example uses more reliable ways to keep track of information while navigating through the different parts of the workflow. Adding bookmarks from Firefox is now more reliable, and if things still ocationally go wrong, the workflow is better at communication that in a useful way. (I switched from Safari to Firefox myself, so it got som more attention than before) Ability to add a bookmark by copying the address, rather than getting it from the currently active browser window. To use this feature for adding a bookmark from an unsupported browser (or somewhere else), just copy the address and go to the bookmark adding feature of this workflow. It will just work, without you having to do anything more than that! (This is the secondary way to add bookmarks, so if a supported browser is the frontmost application, the workflow will still look there and ignore what you might have copied) 1.7: Some features and fixes:
    This version adds support for macOS Monterey!
    When you have updated to macOS Monterey and installed version 1.7 of this workflow you will also need to install PHP (if you haven't done that already of course), as Apple does not include PHP preinstalled anymore in Monterey. Instructions for the recommended way of doing this is available here.
    If you install PHP in a non default path (other than what is default for Homebrew, MacPorts etc), you might want to add that path to the path environment variable in this workflow. If you have set a bookmark as a favourite, this will now be indicated in search results and lists Bookmarks that are marked as favourites will also now by default be listed first in search results and lists, which you can change by setting the value of the environment variable favourites_first in the workflow, if you prefer the old behaviour for this. You can now browse your Unsorted bookmarks, just like you can browse your other bookmark collections. Many potential problems are also fixed with this update, so if you had problems to make this workflow function properly before, this update might fix that. 1.6.1: Fixed an issue with icon caching.
    1.6: Updated to the new Raindrop.io icon, added support for the NAVER Whale browser, fixed a bug with the authentication mechanism.
    1.5: Many changes:
    Tags now display in search results, and you can select them to list or search for bookmarks with that tag When adding a new bookmark, you can now set your own title for it, and add one or more tags While adding tags, you can either simply type them out, or select from a list of tags that matches what you have started to type You can add more than one tag by separating them with a comma: tag1, tag2, tag3 If you type out a tag that does not exist yet, it is created when you save the bookmark Hold down the cmd key if you want to save right away when selecting a tag in the list. Just pressing enter leaves the option of adding more tags. If you want to skip the new options while adding a bookmark, hold the cmd key when you select collection or when you set the title, and the options that follow will be skipped and set to default (Title from the webpage, and no tags) When adding bookmarks, the description is now set to what is specified in the webpages meta description tag, if there is one. This means that in most cases you will get the same description for your new bookmark as what is seen as description for that webpage on search engines. If there is no meta description tag, no description is set. In search results, the collection name, tags and domain name of a bookmark is now shown in the subtitle instead of the first words of the description, like before. This is because that is likely more useful in most cases. You can view the description by holding the ctrl key (And there is a setting to change this back if you would want to, see below) There are now settings! You set them by changing Alfred Environment Variables, and there are now two of them for changing what the bookmark subtitles show, and for changing how subcollections are displayed. 1.4.1: Fixed a bug that would make the bookmark adding feature fail in many cases. If that didn't work for you before this, it probably does work now.
    1.4: Raindrop.io collections will now also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with a search.
    1.3.1: Fixed a bug that made the collection list not loading under certain conditions. For example the first time you tried to add a bookmark.
    1.3: Support for adding new bookmarks to Raindrop.io from the currently active browser.
    1.2: Added option to have a keyboard shortcut for direct access to the Raindrop.io search, and added the ability to hold the option key while pressing enter to copy the link instead of opening it in a browser (you could already copy the link with cmd+c before, and that is still possible)
    1.1: Implemented a proper authentication mechanism, so that this is now handled in a simple to use way that is initiated directly from the workflow if it senses that you are not authenticated yet.
    1.0: Uses Raindrop's new public API to make the search inside Alfred, so that you can open the bookmarks right from Alfred without having to ho through the Raindrop.io website first.
    0.9: First version. Could only open the Raindrop.io website to view the results of your query, as Raindrop's public API was not released yet

    This workflow allows you to view, open and add Safari reading list items.
     
    Features:
    View all your reading list items (keyword: RL). Search for specific items: Entering "rl apple iphone" will return reading list items whose page title or URL contains both "apple" and "iphone". View (and search) only unread reading list items (keyword: RLU). Add new items to your reading list (using keyword RLADD or hotkeys). Open all unread items (keyword: RLALL).   Direct download   Packal page   This workflow uses the awesome Alfred Objective-C framework.   Updates: v1.1: Option to view only unread Reading List items (default keyword: RLU).
      v1.2: Option to add new items to your reading list (keyword: RLADD).
    If the currently active app is a browser (Safari, Webkit, Chrome, Canary and Chromium are currently supported), you can just press Enter to add the URL of its active tab.
    You can also add URL's by typing or pasting.
    The workflow uses AppleScript to add new reading list items, so it requires Safari to be running.
    However, if Safari wasn't running, the workflow will quit it after it's done. (If you had no open windows in Safari, you won't even notice anything).
    Additionally, the workflow checks if the URL you are trying to add is valid by trying to download the <head> element of the corresponding page. So if you are disconnected from the Internet, or the page you are trying to add is unreachable, the workflow will consider the URL as invalid and won't add it.
    To make it add that URL without checking it for validity, use the modifier key (⌃).
      v1.3: Option to open all reading list items (keyword: RLALL).
      v1.4: The open all feature has been modified to open only unread items.
    (You can still open all your reading list items (including the read ones) by pressing Option.)
      v1.4.1: Fixed a typo
      v1.4.2: Fixed yet another typo

Typing ‘g milk' would add that item to the Groceries list.   Because of my OCD the workflow will automatically capitalise the first letter of the task The workflow uses the best parsing engine, Fantastical's, so you’ll need to have that app to be able to use this workflow.   To show all of your lists type +r in Alfred       The workflow shows Notification Centre messages when items are added       Holding down the Option key when hitting Return it will open up the item in Fantastical. Otherwise hitting Return (without Option) will add the task without showing Fantastical.   Download: Add Reminders Alfred workflow   Setup The workflow comes with some pre-named lists:   Reminders Home Work Study Groceries   In the workflow editor delete ones you don’t want or duplicate them to create more. To rename the lists to match yours open the script part of the workflow ‘Run NSAppleScript’ on the right hand side and change the name and list colour (for Notification Centre) at the top between the double lines. To change the colour of a list icon shown in Alfred open the keyword part of the workflow (left hand side) and drag the icon from the ‘Alfred - Reminders List Icons’ folder into the image well.   The workflow uses MountainNotifier for the Notification Centre messages. Once downloaded place it in /usr/bin/   To do this, in Finder’s menu bar select Go > Go to Folder… (or hit Command-Shift-G) and paste in: /usr/bin/   Then place the ‘Automation’ folder (inside the ‘Notification Centre’ folder) in your ~/Documents folder.   (Ignore this if you don’t want to see Notification Centre messages.)     The idea for the Reminders list icons was blatantly pinched from LaunchBar 6
