    # fuzzylist
    Fuzzy, self-updating list filter workflow for Alfred 3
    This is a workflow template - it does nothing as is.
    ## Usage:
    - create a csv file like you would for an Alfred List Filter
    - name the file *list.csv* and add it to the workflow directory
    On the initial run, the workflow will create a file list.json for output to the fuzzy search.  If list.csv is modified, it will update list.json .  
    ## Credits
    - uses fuzzy.py by @deanishe - https://github.com/deanishe/alfred-fuzzy

    juliosecco reacted to vitor in [SOLVED] Screenshots to preview. Is this possible?   
    screencapture, which comes with macOS, is surprisingly capable (man screencapture) and can do it in a single command:
    screencapture -iP "$(mktemp).png" i is to capture interactively (i.e., the same as ⌘⇧4). P is to open the image in Preview after it’s done. "$(mktemp).png" is a temporary file to store the screenshot, which screencapture needs.  
    Add that in a Run Script Action connect by a Hotkey Trigger, and you’re set. Here’s a ready-made Workflow.

    juliosecco reacted to isaacpz in Word Search: A workflow to make you a better writer   
    Word Search is an Alfred 2/3 workflow which exposes powerful word searching utilities. Ultimately, the workflow can be leveraged to widen your vocabulary and make you a better writer.
    Quick Reference
    syn [word] - Broadly searches for words related to a word/phrase. dsyn [word] - Searches for a word’s exact synonyms. ant [word] - Searches for a word’s antonyms. rhyme [word] - Searches a word’s rhymes. describing [word] - Searches for words that describe another word Usage
    Simply type in a command. Selecting a result will copy that word to your clipboard and automatically paste it in the front most app.
    Simply download the latest .alfredworkflow file and double click it to import it to Alfred. Word Search will update on its own.
    Searching for words that describe “dog”

    juliosecco reacted to Carlos-Sz in Recent Items 4.2 for Alfred 3: Docs, Folders, Apps + Custom Categories + Favorites + Interaction with Open/Save Dialogs and more...   

    Workflow to display recent Finder files and folders featuring:
    5 default categories 2 custom categories Favorites, including a file action Keywords and hotkeys for Favorites and all categories apart Interaction with Open/Save dialogs and Finder Go To Folder Preview, reveal, open or use Alfred file actions Usage

    Show Alfred and type the keyword rec:

    You can also use the category keyword if you prefer to access the recent files directly, without an initial menu:
    Now: keyword now Folders: keyword fol Applications: keyword apps Documents: keyword docs Downloads: keyword dow Custom Category 1: keyword c1 Custom Category 2: keyword c2 Favorites: keyword fav In addition, there is a hotkey for the keyword rec, Favorites and all categories apart.

    Note that all keywords, as well as the hotkeys, can be changed (go to Alfred Preferences > Workflows).

    Finally, once inside a category you have the following actions:
    Return key: open the file or folder Command key: reveal the file or folder in Finder Option key: pass the file/older path to an open/save dialog or Finder window Control key: add/remove an item to/from Favorites Shift key: preview (Quick Look) the file or folder Custom Categories

    You can set up to two custom categories:
    Show Alfred and type the keyword recpref Select a category to configure and press return key Type an unique category name with at least 3 characters Type one or more (separated by comma) file types e.g.: com.adobe.pdf,public.plain-text To find a file type you can use Alfred Metadata Analyzer.

    To remove a custom category press command key while highlighting one of them in recpref.


    All files or folders set as a favorite item will remain in the list no matter how old they are.

    To add an item to Favorites just highlight a file or folder, hold control key and press return key.

    To remove an item go to Favorites, highlight an item, hold control key and press return key.

    You can also add items utilizing Alfred File Action (accepts multiple files).

    Note that Favorites has also its own keyword (fav) and hotkey.

    Interacting with Open/Save Dialog or Finder

    You can pass a recent file or folder path, or an item in Favorites, to an open/save dialog or even the current Finder window to go to that folder:
    when an open/save dialog is displayed type the keyword rec or any other category keyword find an item (a file or folder or an item from Favorites), highlight it, hold option key and press return key wait a bit so the workflow can load and paste the item path Default Folder

    The workflow remembers the last path used per application. To use the feature just type the keyword df when an open/save dialog is displayed.

    If the workflow was never used for the application, or the path does not exist anymore, then the keyword rec will be automatically triggered so you can select a path from a file or folder.

    There is also a hotkey to make things even faster.

    Make sure to give the feature time to process because e.g. if you hold keyboard keys way too long then the feature may not work as expected.

    What’s new
    Up to 2 custom categories (keyword recpref) Downloads category Keyword for each category Hotkey for each category Multiple files in Add to Favorites file action Changed Auto-path to Default Folder (keyworod df) Changed Just Now category to Now Added Help (keyword rechelp) Update to Alfred 2.3 features Several internal improvements

    juliosecco reacted to deanishe in [PYTHON FIX] How to fix Python workflows hanging Alfred on Sierra   
    There is a bug in my (unofficial) Alfred-Workflow library that causes very many workflows using it to hang quite dramatically on Sierra.
    If you are affected (i.e. you see Alfred's CPU usage spike to 100%), Activity Monitor will show two Python processes like this (choose View > All Processes, Hierarchically), with the bottom one at ~99% CPU (this screenshot is actually of a non-misbehaving workflow):

    Download and run this workflow, which will update any old versions of Alfred-Workflow in your installed workflows.
    That should get your workflows working again until the workflow developers can push official fixes.

    juliosecco got a reaction from robstarbuck in Splitting a query into two variables   
    Solved    (well, it seems to...)
    here you have the workflow:

    since a way to set multiple variables seems to be the 'JSON Config' object, I have simply setup a script that outputs a 'JSON config' object, after handling the input and splitting the query as desired...
    so my working workflow now has;
    1) a keyword object for the input, so you launch it calling on alfred something like prova2 idproj^^projectName;
    2) a script tha handles {query}, splits it with ^^ delimiter and then outputs the JSON to set the variables:
    sorry, it is php at the moment, it is the language I find more quick along with javascript, here the code:
    <?php $query = $argv[1]; $vars=explode('^^',$query); echo '{   "alfredworkflow" : {     "arg" : "{query}",     "config" : {     },     "variables" : {       "idp": "'.$vars[0].'",       "name": "'.$vars[1].'"     }   } }' ?>   the code simply sets $query to the input, then puts the splitted values on an array $vars then echo ( outputs ) the JSON setting the variables   3) the large type shows the variables, outputting {var:idp}-{var:name}   I'm sure it can be easily rearranged in phyton       obviously it should be refined, for example to correctly escape single quotes on project name, or other things that doesn't come in mind at this hour, but it works...   now the question is: am I doing something that works for casuality, or is it a good and stable approach?   regards,        Giulio

    Windows switcher
    The workflow can be used to switch between the many windows in the current desktop.
    It's really easy to use, you can switch to a specific named window using the keyword swin <name of the process or name of the window>.
    Then a list with the following informations about the results will appear:
    Process Application name  
    When you open one result, by pressing Enter on it, the selected window should be opened.
    In real the workflow opens all the windows of the process, but it puts in foreground just the selected window.
    With the ⌥ modifier all the windows belonging to an other processes will be hidden.

    juliosecco reacted to deanishe in Avoid result actioning   
    EDIT: For anyone reading this post, it's wrong! This is what Alfred-Workflow does, not Alfred. You must set valid=false to make a result item unactionable!

    I think that the incorrect assumption is that an empty arg is equivalent to no arg. It's not.

    If you do not specify arg in your JSON (or XML), then you have an unactionable result. If you set arg to an empty string, then you just set arg to an empty string… The item is actionable, and Alfred will dutifully pass along the empty string to the next action.

    The same goes for autocomplete (if it's an empty string, TABbing deletes the query back to the keyword).

    Setting valid to false should do the trick, but as noted, ensuring arg is not set at all (as opposed to set to an empty string) gives you an unactionable result.
    So, if any authors of Go libraries for Alfred are reading this: Yup, you've done the JSON wrong, and you'll have to rewrite using pointers to strings

    juliosecco got a reaction from deanishe in [HOW TO] Workflow/environment variables   
    I would like to share a thing I just discovered about environment variables and php:
    today I have changed my php.ini.default in php.ini to test a workflow with a 'developer' php warning level, and I was not more able to read environment variables using $_ENV['name'].
    I have discovered that in the php.ini there was a directive variables_order, its comment is:
    " This directive determines which super global arrays are registered when PHP starts up ... There is a performance penalty paid for the registration of these arrays and because ENV is not as commonly used as the others, ENV is not recommended on productions servers. Yo can still get access to the environment variables through getenv() should you need to."
    it was set to "GPCS" where the letters mean GET, POST, COOKIE, ENV and SERVER, and in its default value the E for ENV was missing, for that the $_ENV was not working anymore.
    Setting it to  "GPCSE" made everything work again, but what I have learned is that using $_ENV and getenv() is not equivalent, being the latter better to be sure to correctly read the variable with every php.ini setting, so from now I will always use getenv().
    hope this helps,

    Transmit 4 Workflow for Alfred app
    Workflow for searching and opening Favorites in Transmit 4 App. It's really fast, because it reads the SQLite Database or XML datasource in latests releases of Transmit 4.
    There are already at least 2 Transmit workflows, but one is incompatible with latests Transmit 4 and the other, although very good, uses AppleScript to do the searching, and thus you need to wait for Transmit to open to get feedback. This is particulary slow on non SSD machines.
    Type the keyword (default ftp) and start typing the name of the favorite to search; dead simple.

    By default, the workflow is set up to translate between German and English:
    .ende English query — show German translations of English query. .deen German query — show English translations of German query. ENTER — copy selected translation to the clipboard. CMD+ENTER — open translation in browser. glosbehelp — open the included help file in your browser. glosbelang [query] — view and search supported languages. To use other language pairs, you will have to edit the workflow, either changing the included English <-> German Script Filters or adding your own using them as a template.
