  1. That's an awesome way to think about it. Makes the cringe more bearable. I'll try and keep this in mind.
  2. Hi everyone, I don't play video games very often but I recently started playing Factorio in which I find myself using very weird and complicated key combinations... not unlike some of Alfred's shortcuts... And quite often, I trigger a workflow... Is there a way to prevent that? While still having Alfred work as soon as I switch to another app (like switching to desktop #1 to answer a few messages while playing). Thanks a lot.
  3. I can probably come up with a good list of reasons why I left. But since it has been such a long time, none of them are probably very accurate. A huge part of why I left was probably because of personal reasons, health, work, life... Also, an increasingly big part of my coding started gravitating towards piracy and it was made clear to me more than once that it wasn't welcome here. I had used Alfred to get into programming basically (yes you can be MIT robotics and learn programming through alfred!) and I had started getting good enough that it wasn't that interesting to me to code workflows The direction v3 was taking didn't benefit me personally. It was gearing towards entry level power users and I started feeling left out. I remember wanting dynamic updates of items within a results list and getting into an argument about it (probably with @Dferg). I wanted other things too, but I can't remember what. Also, v3 felt like a money grab to me. Also I thought I had to pay for it. @rice.shawn(and @deanishe?) wanted me to get more involved and I kept saying yes and failing on my promise to do so... So I kinda shamed out. It didn't feel very gratifying to develop workflows because I couldn't really get usage stats, and from my own estimates, each one got downloaded less than 20 times ... And now that I'm back, it all feels too far and not worth it. I'd like to recode every single workflow I have but that's not gonna pay the bills.
  4. Subscribing. (Can't remember if this forum works that way...)
  5. Thanks for the twitter trick. As for packal, it seems to be unmaintained. It doesn't update my workflows anymore, search doesn't work, features shawn and I had talked about aren't implemented... And yeah, "share your workflows" is definitely my go-to but it's way to big and messy to find the gems...
  6. Hey all, I used to be a very active contributor to Alfred 2 and I kinda stopped with the release of Alfred 3. I just realized today that the licence I had for v2 allows me to use v3! So now I'm back and I'd like to get the latest, the best, the most used, the most innovative, everything the community has to offer! Where can I find this? Thanks all :-)
  7. More aggressive foreground

    I am super happy about this ! Really it's cool ! There is still an annoyance though... (sorry Andrew :-( ) in the form of the following: say I'm watching a TV series on my computer using the MPV player, one episode is about to end, so I pop Alfred up and start to look for the next episode. But MPV has the particularity of quitting when a video is over, thus giving the focus to the next application and escaping Alfred in the process. Could there be a way for Alfred to remain active while the frontmost application changes?
  8. WiFi Network Scanner/Picker

    Hey man, this is great. It's been expected for a long long time ! First things first: could you package it as a .alfredworkflow file to distribute it? You can just right click on the workflow in the workflow list of alfred preferences, and click "export".

    Yay !! Genius ! This is really going to improve my experience here :-) Thanks !
  10. [1.11] Install App

    Weird... Plus, I have nothing to install in my Download folder :-)
  11. Packal: Workflow and Theme Repository

    Weird update in Packal : it proposes to revert the "install app" workflow rather than update...
  12. More aggressive foreground

    Hey Andrew. I've been slacking here, so I don't know if this was actually implemented... But Alfred still is behind VLC and MPV when these are in 'float on top' mode...
  13. [1.11] Install App

    Not what I meant at all. Here it is: Create a BACKUP version of the app you want to install with the safe `rsync` method Try and `mv` the ORIGINAL app into /Applications Delete the BACKUP If `mv` worked, then you didn't need to close the app, this is ideal. If it didn't, then you had a backup copy to `rsync` into \Applications (in which case you will have to ask to close the app). But with this process, closing the app is only required rarely.
  14. [1.11] Install App

    Ok so then here's an idea: you `rsync` a temporary copy of the file, you `mv` the file, and then delete the temp copy. Then you don't need to close the app (except if the `mv` failed but then it'll only be rare cases). If the `mv` failed, you have the backup temp copy to start the process over.
