  1. Yep, there are complex workflows and argument heavy workflows that I just don't use because the only history search command I know is "up". For example, there's this "What's binding the port" workflow, that I sometimes really need (because something is taking up a port) but normally I don't use every day, the syntax is very hard to remember. In the terminal, I have fzf so I never get frustrated typing a long command, I know I'll never have to type it again if I remember a part of it.
  2. Thank you, that did the trick, my notifications were set to "Alerts", I've never on that settings screen, so some OS upgrade or something changed the default.
  3. Has anyone else had song notifications that never disappear? they just stay forever
  4. oh man, I can't believe I didn't try {clipboard:{query}} sorry, it works perfectly
  5. you mean to see if my value is passing through? I see this in the logs: and just now I tried just putting {query} in there and it worked (pasted a number):
  6. I tried using {clipboard:query} and {clipboard:{var:query}} I'm passing query from an external trigger. Am I doing something wrong or is this not supposed to work? Thanks
  7. Ehhh... silly of me to update Alfred so soon after release. Anyway, this workflow doesn't work in Alfred 4, thought it was worth mentioning - the upgrade migration process hasn't migrated my client ID/API key, and the welcome screen that suggests opening "Spotify Application page" does not open it, this is the error I see in the debugger: >/bin/bash: /Users/<username>/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred/Workflow Data/com.vdesabou.spotify.mini.player/action.log: No such file or directory When I created that file manually, it worked.
  8. Appreciate the mention, I found it already a few months ago, couldn't get it to work on El Cap, then upgraded to Mojave and couldn't get it to work there as well. Maybe I haven't tried hard enough, it felt pretty hacky and I gave up quickly. Instead, I have recently completely hidden my menu bar (I have a shortcut that brings it back if needed). I appreciate the extra real-estate and don't miss it. It was always just a trap to get me to use the mouse
  9. It's happening mostly with VSCode, that's the only program where I made good use of this feature. Thank you @Vero and @vitor, I'll try both suggestions!
  10. I don't know if my hand is shaking or if my keyboard is too sensitive (I did change the default repeat rate in OSX), but I keep merging clipboard items accidentally, I sort of like the merge feature and would like to try to keep using it, but the regular shortcut is just not working out for me. Maybe there's a trick to changing it to something else? EDIT: I'm using a bunch of other keyboard oriented utilities - Seil, Karabiner, Hammerspoon Thanks
  11. https://github.com/txaiwieser/OpenInHelium_AlfredWorkflow I've been using this one
  12. @dixhuit - I only ever think about doing it when my iterm crashes and I have to restore all my tabs/panes manually. But over time crashes that reset the positions of everything became pretty rare (restarting the OS or iterm flawlessly restores everything reliably now, it used to be very buggy).
  13. I get this: ruby 2.0.0p648 (2015-12-16 revision 53162) [universal.x86_64-darwin15] I know I'm behind, but I'm just worried about all the changes in the recent OS versions (don't want to switch from the old Karabiner, for example).
  14. Hey, sorry... OS: 10.11.6 Alfred: 3.6.2 (922) Process Control: 1.0.6 Yeah, the workflow just doesn't show anything, the debug shows: [2018-08-06 10:05:35][ERROR: input.scriptfilter] Code 1: ~/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Scripts/F4B6A515-4330-4787-A8F6-B96452EDC1E5:4:in `split': invalid byte sequence in UTF-8 (ArgumentError) from ~/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Scripts/F4B6A515-4330-4787-A8F6-B96452EDC1E5:4:in `<main>' Thanks
  15. I installed this app which has a ê in the name, it kills the workflow - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fenêtre-lite/id1288451627
  16. The update process for VSCode is putting some version (not sure if it's the new one or the old one) under /Library/Caches and for at least a couple of days after the update, I'd randomly get either the old or the new version. It's out of my control unfortunately. Hopefully now that I have the full path it won't happen anymore. Thanks for the tip, I moved my other editor out of ~/Downloads.
  17. @deanishe - I'm wondering, how does this workflow search for the app which we pass in the config? I've been having issues forever with VSCode where right after it updates (for a day or two), this plugin would open the wrong VSCode and not the one from /Applications. I tried setting the full path in the config and it seem to have solved the problem, but I'm wondering how it works, because I think I'm having similar issues with other editors as well (which could be in ~/Downloads AND in /Applications).
  18. Every tab is project oriented and some projects consist of client+server or a main project+library and I usually work on both at the same time. 1. one big pane for either tests or console output of the main aspect of the project 2. watch and transpile (Typescript) 3. for client-side builder and bundler (some projects do #2 & #3 at the same time, some are broken into separate transpile step and another for test/build/bundle) 4. Supporting mini-services, mostly custom ones because I start most 3rd party services from hotel + alfred 5. I also work on cli apps and one app can do different things, so for every type of major command I have a pane
  19. Yeah, my guess was that you're doing much more on the terminal, I almost never connect to remote shells and do all editing in VSCode. In the terminal I always have at least 2 windows with many (many) tabs and panes, usually with a special 2-5 pane-layout per project. So I was looking for a tool that will allow me to predefine these pane-layouts easily so I can close tabs and not worry about losing a silly thing like where my panes used to be and which folder they had open. I watched a video about tmux, I feel like if I ever switch to 50/50 linux/mac it'll be worthwhile to learn, but while I'm 100% on mac, the iTerm tabs/panes feel more natural than "simulated" tabs/panes if that makes sense.
  20. @deanishe Do you use iTerm and don't use its split panes feature and instead use tmux? Or do you use another terminal emulator altogether? I'm not super attached to the split panes feature in iTerm, I know the shortcut to split, but never learned all the other shortcuts. I'm willing to learn another tool if it's awesome. 2 follow up questions: do you do anything with tmux from alfred? do you do most of your coding from the terminal? vim or something like that?
  21. Nothing helped btw, updated java and it still happens, tried to bring up the clipboard using the keyword instead of caps lock also results in same behavior.
  22. itermocil seems like a great match for an alfred workflow, I'm wondering if anyone is working on putting together a workflow for it? Something like listing the different layouts and triggering them on enter.
  23. Yeah, the plan for next time is solid: * Try to use different ways to bring up the history and see if it makes a difference * Install new Java
  24. Well, re-activating it. I just tried a couple of times (now that it's working) and I see that wherever I bring up the clipboard history, the original cursor stays "active" (blinking) in the active application throughout the pasting process (while Alfred is up as well), but that was not the case when the problem was occurring, I had to click on the active application again before I was able to paste with the native CMD+V. EDIT: I don't know if it matters, I bring up the clipboard history with Caps Lock (hyper key remap) - which means it goes through stuff like Karabiner and Seil, maybe they for whatever reason mess up the focus?
