  1. Hi, I have a smart playlist containing only songs which are rated 5 stars. iTunes will "automatically rate" albums based on the average rating you've given the songs on it. Somehow, non-rated songs from albums with automatic ratings are creeping into this playlist. For example, if I have given a 5-star rating to song A on album X, then somehow unrated song B on album X will play. I haven't been able to reproduce this consistently, but I'm definitely not able to reproduce this when starting my playlist via iTunes -- it only happens when I start playing my playlist through Alfred. Alfred 3.4.1 860, macOS 10.12.6, iTunes Chris
  2. Hi, Alfred's iTunes integration isn't doing anything for me: OK, so let's look... You can see in this screencast that the "Find" button doesn't do anything. I'll need to find that file myself. The problem is it doesn't exist: $ find ~ -name 'iTunes Library*' /Users/boneskull/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library Extras.itdb /Users/boneskull/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library Genius.itdb /Users/boneskull/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library.itl Of note, all of my music is in iTunes Match. Is there some way to create this file? - Mac OS 10.11.5 (15F34) - Alfred 3.0.2 (676) - iTunes
  3. This seems to work, but not in a "set-it-and-forget-it" way: sudo find /path/to/projects. -regex .*/node_modules$ -maxdepth 3 | xargs -I {} defaults write /path/to/.Spotlight-V100/VolumeConfiguration.plist Exclusions -array-add '{}'
  4. I need to exclude a glob or regex; not just individual folders. My use case: I have a bunch of Node.js projects in a directory, e.g. /projects. Each of these typically has a node_modules subfolder. I want Alfred and/or Spotlight (I don't "use" Spotlight) to ignore everything in a node_modules folder. It doesn't seem possible to do this via the Spotlight PrefPane. Alternatively, if Alfred could "prioritize" matches whose path is closer to the root (/ or /projects), that may help. As it stands, if I type a name of a package (e.g. mocha), I'm not guaranteed to see /projects/mocha; I may get /projects/foo/node_modules/mocha. There are tens, if not hundreds of results. Any ideas? I wonder if I can use mdutil or something to blacklist node_modules...
  5. I was sitting there in iTerm thinking "wouldn't it be great if I could talk to Alfred directly from the terminal"? bash completion, etc. I'm not sure how to get this done; I was hoping for some guidance by the authors. Alfred's AppleScript library only exposes a few functions. If I wanted to use completion, I'd need a list of all of its keywords. However, if that list existed, I'm sure I could work something out. It'd be pretty awesome. Chris
  6. Andrew, thanks for the help. I tried deleting ~/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari but it didn't seem to make a difference. Trying to rebuild the spotlight data now; I'll let you know if it works.
  7. Hi, I've configured Alfred to search for my Safari bookmarks; however, none are ever shown. I don't recall this ever working for me. Could this be a permissions or privacy/security issue? Running "repair disk permissions" in Disk Utility.app does nothing. Here's a screenshot of my preferences. Here's a movie of the behavior. Other relevant data: MacOS X 10.10.3 Alfred v2.7 (385) thanks, Chris
  8. The Readme workflow opens the README.md of any npm module within its associated application. This is generally a Markdown file, so you will want a Markdown viewer. I use Marked 2. Here's a list of Markdown-related applications. This is incredibly handy if you're working with a lot of npm modules; I use it constantly--especially when fussing with a bunch of Grunt tasks. For the curious, it works by simply asking npm for the "readme" data of a module, saves it to a temp file, then opens it. Known Issues: No feedback if it can't find the module you're looking for. No autocompletion Current Version: v1.0 Dependencies: NodeJS & the internets Download: Packal / GitHub / Direct
