    ctwise got a reaction from David in Collection of workflows   
    I collected the various workflows I've posted together on Github (https://github.com/ctwise/alfred-workflows). One or two are new but most have already been posted on this forum.
     
     
    character-paletteVery simple workflow to display the OS/X Character Palette for selecting obscure characters. Responds to the keyword 'character'.
    Binary download
    create-histlist-taskCreate tasks in the application The Hit List. Task text follows the format:
    <task text> \[% <hit list category>\] \[! <priority>\] \[| <note text>\]

    Responds to the keyword 'ta'.
    Examples:
    ta Do something - Create the task 'Do something' in the inbox
    ta Do something else %work - Create the task 'Do something else' in the Work folder
    ta More work !1 - Create the task 'More work' in the inbox with priority 1
    ta Stuff | Notes about it - Create the task 'Stuff' in the inbox with 'Notes about it' as a note

    Binary download
    date-and-timeVery simple workflow to display the current date and time, and, optionally, copy it to the clipboard.
    Responds to both keywords 'date' and 'time'.
    Binary download
    google-autocompleteThis is based almost entirely on David Ferguson's workflow. It is rewritten in Ruby but only makes two small changes: it provides the raw search text as an option if there are no Google search results and it times out the Google search result request.
    Responds to the keyword 'g'.
    Binary download
    kill-processSearch for and kill a process. This lists all the processes that match the text typed. Selecting a process does a 'kill' on it. Holding down the alt modifier key does a 'kill -9' and holding down the cmd modifier does a 'kill -HUP'.
    Responds to the keyword 'kill'.
    Binary download
    menu-bar-searchThis is based on the workflow by Jeroen van der Neut. It was his excellent idea and he provided the Applescript to extract menu items.
    This workflow lets you control the front-most application by triggering menu actions. The text entered is used to display matching menu items. The change from Jeroen van der Neut's workflow is to cache the menu items.
    This workflow is a work in progress and has rough edges. The first is that caches aren't aged - they're permanent. The second is that menu item names extracted from Applescript don't always match the displayed text, e.g., a menu item might say 'Turn feature off' or 'Turn feature on' based on the feature status but the extracted menu text is 'Toggle feature'. The result is that the menu item can't be activated by the workflow.
    Binary download
    network-infoThis is based on David Ferguson's IP Address workflow. The difference is that it provides interface names and mac address.
    The workflow responds to the keywords 'ip' and 'mac'. For the 'ip' keyword it lists all interfaces and the local IP addresses. It also displays the external IP address. For the 'mac' keyword it lists all interfaces and the local MAC addresses.
    If you select an IP address or MAC address it will be copied to the clipboard. Holding down the cmd modifier key will also paste it in the front-most application.
    Binary download
    recent-documentsBased on the workflows by Clinton Strong and David Ferguson. The difference is it consolidates the OS/X recent documents list and the Alfred recent documentst list.
    Triggering the workflow lists all of the recent documents. Selecting one will open it in the default application. Holding down the cmd modifier key will reveal it in Path Finder or Finder (depending on whether Path Finder is installed).
    Responds to the keyword 'recent'.
    Binary download
    running-appsLists all of the running OS/X applications (not processes, what OS/X considers as a running app). Selecting one will activate the application. Holding down the alt modifier key will trigger the built-in 'quit' Alfred command.
    Responds to the keyword 'running'.
    Binary download
    search-pubmedSearches PubMed at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. Provides two alternates search modes. The first does a keyword search of PubMed articles. Selecting an article displays the article information. The second uses the PubMed search suggestions. Selecting a suggestion performs a PubMed search using that search text.
    Responds to the keywords 'pubmed' for article searches and 'pubmed2' for search suggestions.
    Binary download
    time-machineSimple Time Machine status and control. Shows the Time Machine completion status and provides support to start and stop Time Machine backups.
    Responds to the keywords 'tmac status' to show status, to 'tmac start' to start a Time Machine backup and to 'tmac stop' to stop a Time Machine backup.
    Binary download
    top-processesLists the top processes, aka the command-line 'top'. Selecting a process will activate the 'kill-process' workflow to kill the selected process.
    Binary download
    vmware-controlBased on the Parallels Control workflow. Provides a mechanism to control VMWare VMs.
    Keyword 'vm list' lists the knows VMs and their current status. Selecting one copies the VM path to the clipboard. Keyword 'vm ip' lists the IP addresses of running VMs. Selecing one copies the IP address to the clipboard. Keyword 'vm start' lists the stopped VMs. Selecting one starts it. Keyword 'vm stop' lists the running VMs. Selecting one stops it. Keyword 'vm reset' lists the running VMs. Selecting one resets it. Keyword 'vm suspend' lists the running VMs. Selecting one suspends it. Keyword 'vm pause' lists the running VMs. Selecting one pauses it. Keyword 'vm unpause' lists the running VMS. Selecting one unpauses it. Keyword 'vm snapshot' requires a snapshot name and lists the running VMs. Selecting one creates a named snapshot of that VM. Keyword 'vm revert' requires a snapshot name and lists the running VMs. Selecting one reverts to a named snapshot of that VM. Binary download
    volume-controlSimple workflow that provides volume control. Keyword 'max' sets the volume to max. Keyword 'medium' sets the volume to mid-level. Keyword 'mute' mutes the system volume.

    ctwise got a reaction from thec13 in Menu bar search   
    Ruby. I'm no guru but I use it to hack together support scripts during development, e.g., data transformation, etc.
     
    The new workflow version is here - http://tedwi.se/u/db
      I added caching but, given the circumstances, it's very coarse. If we've never seen the app before we dump the menu contents into a file in /tmp/. Subsequent invocations, if we find the menu contents in /tmp/, we use them but kick off a background process to regenerate them. That way, we get immediate response but, by the time we get to the end of what we're typing it's current to the given app. It's pretty wasteful, but, oh well.   Seriously, this was a flat-out fantastic idea.

    ctwise got a reaction from jibbe in Recent Documents   
    You need to have the command-line tools installed to build gems with native extensions (that's the compiler toolchain, headers, etc.). It's available in Xcode which is free on the App Store but is an enormous download. If you go that route, after you install it, go to Preferences -> Downloads and install the Command Line Tools from inside Xcode.
     
    You can also go to https://developer.apple.com/downloads and download the Command Line Tools .dmg and install from there - it's much smaller and doesn't install Xcode. You have to register at developer.apple.com to download anything but it's free.

    ctwise got a reaction from untidey in Throttle script filters   
    Script filters fire for every key press. That is fine for lightweight script filters that can respond quickly but is a problem for heavy script filters that take significant time to operate. It would be helpful to support script filter throttling. This might be as simple as a checkbox ("Throttle requests"). It would work by waiting a short time between key presses, if another key is pressed the timer resets, if the timer expires the script filter is run.
     
    It's possible to emulate this in a script but it's such a common use case it would be helpful to have it in Alfred.

    ctwise got a reaction from Tyler Eich in Alfred vs Global Hotkeys for switching frequently used apps   
    I do Java development and my IDE eats up almost all of the possible key chords. That leaves me with control-option-command+<letter>. So, control-option-command-m is Mail, etc. I thought it would be too many keys but it actually works very well.

    ctwise got a reaction from drking in PubMed searches   
    This intrigued me so I came at it in two different ways. One script filter looks up the term being entered and provides a list of articles with titles, dates and authors. Choosing one of the entries takes you directly to the summary page.
     
    The other script filter does an autocomplete for search terms, e.g., 'diabetes' gives you options like 'diabetes mellitus'. Choosing one of the entries takes you to a search page for that search query.
     
    Pick your poison.

    ctwise got a reaction from pavan309 in Kill Process   
    This is a workflow to support killing a process (as opposed to quitting an app). It uses the new infrastructure to list the processes that match a given name, e.g., 'kill java' will list all of the processes that include 'java' in their names. Holding down 'alt' will do a 'kill -9' instead of a regular kill.

    ctwise got a reaction from deanishe in VMWare Fusion Controller   
    I created a workflow inspired by the Parallels controller workflow. It doesn't do screen captures since VMWare requires a username / password to do that, otherwise it's pretty similar. It's on alfpt or you can download it from here: http://tedwi.se/u/d4
     
    The following commands are available:
     
     
    vm list - Provides a list of VM's and their status (running or stopped). Copies path to clipboard. vm start [nogui] - List the VM's that are currently stopped so you can start them. Optionally, if you add 'nogui' it will start them without showing the VMWare window. vm stop [hard] / vm suspend [hard] / vm reset [hard] - List the VM's that are currently running so you can stop, suspend or reset them. Optionally, if you add 'hard' it will force the action. vm pause / vm unpause - Get a list of VM's that are currently running so you can pause or unpause them. A paused VM counts as running. vm snapshot <name> - Get a list of VM's that are currently running so you can create a named snapshot of a VM's current state, 'name' is not optional. vm ip - List the ip addresses of all running vms and copies the selected ip to the clipboard. The vm _must_ be running vmware tools for this to work. vm revert <name> - revert a vm to the named snapshot.   2013-02-07 - Add icons (cribbed from Jonas Erikson's VirtualBox controller)
