    Florian got a reaction from deanishe in I'm back, where to find best new workflows?   
    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.

    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 :-)

    The only thing you are linked to is DropBox (and NO mention that a Transmission download would end up there, Mine sure as (bleep) don't, and if yours do, that's your personal choice - not everyone's. But, either way, there's NO mention of this, and - as I colourfully laid out - N-O - transmission downloading workflow of any kind.

    Florian got a reaction from 40-02 in Demo your workflows in a beautiful way   
    Hey guys,
     
    I just made a very simple framework to enable people to demo their alfred workflows in a prettier way than a gif. It's a mockup of alfred all in javascript and CSS, with fake osx notifications and pretend key display. Scripting is very easy and all in json and there is all the callback, timing and looping you might want.
     
    Here is the live demo; it should be fully operational. More is coming but feel free to fork it on github already ! 
     
    To all those who have somewhat complex workflows, now you can explain in a very simple way. I'm also thinking Packal could integrate this Detailed instructions on github.

    Florian got a reaction from mcskrzypczak in [1.11] Install App   
    Great, it's working now :-)
     
    I have some feedback for you though:

    In the above picture, you can see your own workflow, and actual app (pacapong.app), a hidden R history file ".Rapp.history" (this is a software used in research for statistical analysis and the likes), and a folder "71135_katapult_zip" containing blender models, images and html files.
     
    I don't really think ".Rapp.history" and "71135_katapult_zip" have their place on this list. If you don't want to filter files by their extension, then at least you could try and explore them and see if they fit (the ".Rapp" file will not have the usual package content structure, the "katapult_zip" is actually a folder containing nothing that can be installed).
     
    My Download is not so very messy. It is, but I think it could be way worse, in which case I'd be lost in files suggested for install...
     
    Anyway, I like what you did ;-)

    Florian got a reaction from leberblock in Currency Converter   
    So I made a workflow with fed back results.
     
    But I made it a somewhat special way in that currencies are defined within the workflow. I really like how simple it makes it though.
     
    But it's easy to change for your own currencies (if like me you only ever use the same) or to combine with the one posted by theFeverDog (first post of this topic) to get something more dynamic.

    A better unit converter
     

     
     
     Download V0.6
    contact thijs@designandsuch.com for questions, bugs, ideas and such
     
    try out the demo
     
     
     
     
    There are more unit converters available. but i didn't like the lack of speed due to the feeds. Thus i redid one myself which calculates everything on your mac. It fetches new currency data once in a while.. that's the only time when a second delay might appear. And in my humble opinion it's already better than all other unit converters around.
     
    I might add more units in the future but so far it has:
     
    - 7 units temperature  ( celsius, kelvin, fahrenheit etc. )
    - 21 units on length  ( km, miles, nautical miles etc. )
    - 15 units on weight   ( kg, lb, etc. )
    - 8 units on time ( days, hours, years months etc )
    - 18 units on digital memory ( GB, MB TB bytes, kilobytes etc )
    - 5 units on speed ( km/h, miles per hour etc.
    - 90 units on currencies ( euro, dollar, pounds, dinar etc. )
     
    that's 164 units
     
     
    It has a nice blind rating system. so the more you choose for one answer, the more it will be likely that that one shows up in the suggestions.  
    Automatic updates from a currency xml file  
    I am working on an automatic update on the whole workflow so i could add new features while you use it. But that is not finished yet.. and i thought.. let's start sharing maybe ill get some nice feedback for possible cool ideas.  
    * designed the icons myself, probably could work some more on those too.  
     
     
    it doesn't need explanation...
    if you'll just start typing

    or something you will figure out how it works.

    Florian reacted to jonathanwiesel in Alfred Package Manager   
    Hello there,
     
    I've been building a CLI application to manage workflows the way package managers like npm and Homebrew does, I called it "awm" (acronym for Alfred Workflow Manager). Using http://packal.org (by Shawn Patrick Rice) as workflow's central repository, the intention of this project is to easily install and update workflows for shell lovers (like me).
     
    The project still needs user intervention for installing and updating workflows, unfortunately I'm unable to keep working on it for the moment, so any node.js developer that would like to contribute on the remaining features is more than welcome. 
     
    For more information feel free to check it out:

    Florian reacted to deanishe in Can a script filter result be valid only for certain modifiers?   
    Perhaps you could twizzle the <subtitle mod="cmd"> XML into a mod tag:
    <mod key="cmd" valid="yes">    <subtitle>My alternate subtitle</subtitle>    <arg>my alternate arg</arg> </mod> Having (optional) alternate args would make it easier to, say, open URLs to different websites or copy different formats of dates/colours/whatever to the clipboard without having to wrangle half a dozen Run Script/Open URL/Copy to Clipboard actions.
     
    It'd also make it easier for workflows to manage their own configuration without having to re-write their own info.plist, which is not an optimal solution.

    Florian reacted to rice.shawn in Yosemite-esque Cards   
    First, I'll say that I'm not sure how feasible this would be, but...
     
    I really like how the new Spotlight shows the list of results to the left and a quicklook/card to the right. I can see this being very useful in script filters. Unfortunately, I don't think it would be possible to implement wholesale across Alfred. But we could, in a script filter, indicate that a card show be shown (this would be a global for the script filter) and then describe the content in the "card" for each result. I'm not sure if that would mean that we'd have the option to use quicklook for a document or render a map or just have some structured text appear, or a mix of both, but, regardless, it would be hella useful. Like, for the Spotify workflows, it could show the cover and some more meta-data about the track. For a translation workflow, it could show an extended translation or some synonyms or something. Some of this might be possible if the card field was just wrapped in a CDATA tag.

    Florian got a reaction from Tyler Eich in Authorise use of buffer from workflows   
    Hey community,
     
    So here's my use case, and i'm sure we could come up with dozens more:
     
    I'm using fniephaus's awesome gmail workflow and when i type "gmail INBOX" i get a list of emails. Now some of those i want to mark as read. Then I have to individually go to each one of these and press enter and press "mark as read"... 
    So I figure: ideally i'd press Alt+DOWN on a few of these and they'd stack up and then i'd be able to trigger an action.
     
    So of course there are ways of doing this without Alfred's native file buffer. And of course it would mean writing more script for the developer. But wouldn't it be great to take advantage of this nice little piece of UI? 
     
    Cheers.

    Alfred URI Handler
     
    GitHub: https://github.com/raguay/MyAlfred/blob/master/AlfredURIHandler.alfredworkflow
    Packel: http://www.packal.org/workflow/alfred-uri-handler
     
    This workflow has one command "au:install". Once you run it, a URI handler for Alfred will be installed. This is used to trigger external triggers in any workflow. The format is:
     
    alfreduri://com.apple.AppleScript.AlfredURIhandler?wf=<workflow Bundle ID>&arg=<arguments>&ext=<external trigger name>
     
    The arguments should be URI encoded (ie: no spaces, but %20 instead). If you update the workflow, you have to re-apply the handler. Also, do not delete the workflow or the functionality will be removed.
     
    I use it to make action links in FoldingText to trigger actions in Alfred.
     
    There is also a "search=<search args>" to open the Alfred prompt with a query. It now works. If you already downloaded and installed the handler, please do it again.
