  1. I have a private workflow called 'Filters' with a bunch of different file filters, each scoped to one of my favorite folders. One filter that I would really like to add is a Trash filter; I just can't figure out how to tell Alfred to search my Trash I tried setting the Scope to ~/.Trash, and then I tried turning 'Show files marked as System File' on. Neither option provides any results. Am I missing something?
  2. Hey Guys, I made a very simple workflow for searching dribbble for something. It is mostly meant for designers in need for some quick inspiration. The usage instructions are available on the github page - https://github.com/Ghosh/Dribbble-Alfred I am quite new to Alfred (kicking myself for not starting to use it earlier!) and this is my first attempt at making my own workflow. It would be great to know how I can extend it's functionality and make it better. Thanks! Download
  3. My first Alfred 2 Workflow for searching the Minecraft Wiki. Just type "mine" and lets get start. Suggestions coming soon... If anybody know how this works - let me know. http://d.pr/f/QELU
  4. I would like to build a workflow that will take a URL (or more than one) and some text, run the 'find' (⌘-f) function to search the site for that text and return the URL in a new tab if text is found. Example: URL: http://ontap.me/thefriendlyspot TEXT: IMPERIAL If there is an 'IMPERIAL' beer on the list, I would see the URL loaded in a new browser tab and the first instance of 'IMPERIAL' would be highlighted! If not I would get a "Sorry, 'IMPERIAL' not found" growl or notification or some such. This could have many different uses, but I want to know if the bars near me have what I want to drink without having to hit all of their sites... It also might be nice to know if a movie is available somewhere or something, but my beer needs come first!
  5. I created a workflow that displays search suggestions for soundcloud.com in alfred. Screenshots + Download: https://github.com/blaww/SoundCloud-Suggestions-Alfred-Workflow You have to have python and the soundcloud api installed!

  6. I've completely rebuilt redwall_hp's original IMDB Search Suggest workflow to include more information in results, a fallback for longer search queries using a cache, and a new icon. I've also changed the keyword to i but you can easily change that to imdb or whatever you like. I hope you'll enjoy! Download .alfredworkflow GitHub
  7. It would be much easier if I could type letters in the name of a file/program and get those results from a fuzzy search. For example, I think of "Devonthink Pro" as "DVT," not as "Dev." If I type "dv," I get nothing for results. Thanks!
  8. Hello, forum I have two drives in my MacBook Pro, an SSD for boot and an HDD with an HFS+ partition for storage and an NTFS partition for bootcamp. After installing Alfred, I noticed that the partitions on my HDD were not indexed. I followed Apple's reindexing procedure (adding the volumes to the non-index list and removing) and it went through just fine. Now, spotlight shows files from those two partitions without any issues. Alfred, however, refuses to search in those volumes. What should I do? Regards Raptor
  9. Ability to search Mavericks tags would be appreciated at least by me. Although I don't see spotlight showing results using it yet so this might be a tall order.
  10. Hi All-- I am a big fan of the ability for Chrome and Firefox (with InstantFox) to store search queries for multiple websites-- the same way that Alfred can. I have already built up a large library of stored searches in InstantFox that can be exported as text (see excerpt below) but I was wondering if there is a graceful way to convert all these to an Alfred Workflow in one fell swoop? What do you think?

  11. Hello, I spend my days building and administrating Wordpress websites for companies. Today i am administrating over 100 sites, and it is getting more every day. My request for a workflow is quicker access to different admin-areas in wordpress of the sites. Lets say i have these three sites: www.coolpage1.com www.coolpage2.com www.coolpage3.com All of the sites admin-area can be accessed by adding "/wp-admin" at the end of the url. Today i use the custom search that is built into Alfred with the {query}. For example i write the keyword "admin" followed by "coolpage2". This works fine for opening www.coolpage2.com/wp-admin. The problem with this method for me though is: 1. Its is a slow process to add all the 100 sites in the custom search 2. I need to complete the looong query "coolpage2" (i would like it to autocomplete). 3. I would like to easily add shortcuts to other areas of the Wordpress Dashboard, not just /wp-admin. I would want to easily bring up "new post", "widgets", "menus" and more (which always has the same url-endings on every page), but custom search forces me to repeat the process thousands of times. So could i make a script that could do the following: 1. Enter a keyword ("wg" for widgets, "wm" for menus, "wn" for new post and so forth) 2. Start typing a query that autocompletes based on an overview of sites ("coolpage1", "coolpage2", "coolpage3") and open the correct URL based on keyword and query 3. Add a new sites quickly and easily to the "autocomplete-database" by typing keyword "addpage" followed by "coolpage4" I have no idea how to do this, but it would speed up my workday alot! Anyone able to help me with this? Anders
  12. WHAT A very simple search workflow on caniuse.com for those who don't want to spend 6 seconds on opening your default browser and type "can i use" in the search field, or spend 3 minutes on making your own custom workflow. So here you are. I know I'm going to use it often. HOW "use {keyword}" WHERE Grab the workflow here http://cl.ly/Pbr9
  13. I have created a Workflow for searching the official RealBasic Documentation Wiki. This Workflow is a simple modification of the Wikipedia workflow (alternate) by Benzi. To use it, just type rbw, followed by the search query. Then select the fitting result and hit enter to open the Website in your standard Browser. For example rbw f (see Screenshot below). You can download it here: Download I've also implemented the AlleyOOP-Update Files. Thanks to phyllisstein
  14. Made a simple workflow for searching and sharing on Google+. It works with the default user that's signed in to your browser; activated using the "g+" keyword. Get it here: http://http://j.mp/gplus-alfred
  15. Hi...I have another possibly stupid question. Which is a result of my installing this new version of Alfred on a new mac. Anyway, when I bring up Alfred and search for a folder that is in my Documents folder, Alfred isn't finding it. Do I need to rebuild my spotlight results or something? Or configure Alfred to find it? I looked at the Search settings and don't see anything that would be excluding the folders.
  16. I don't know if this is possible so i am posting it here. Let's say I have three mounted disks and I only want to unmount two of them. ASOT I have to repeat the process "Eject disk X" two times. What I do like to do is type the keyword of the workflow that unmount disks, select all the disk I want to unmount and click enter. Another use case, when using the buffer, I have to type the name of the file I want to add, hit alt+up for any file I want to add. I would like to have to type the name of the file I want to add, select all the files and I hit and special shortcut to add them to the buffer. One could select the files by clicking or a la Finder (ie with a shortcut shift+down).
  17. Hello everyone! Made a Clojars.org inline search + copy to clipboard workflow. Download!
  18. Grab it here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2705462/stackoverflow.alfredworkflow This is a fork of xhinking's awesome StackOverflow workflow (http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1524-stackoverflow-workflow/) that shows how long ago the question was asked in human-readable format, i.e. "2 years, 3 months ago".
  19. While I have used Alfred for several months, and I really would like to like it, and buy the PowerPack, I just cannot get over the fact that it does not find things. Spotlight finds them easily. I thought Alfred should find anything Spotlight can. For Extras, I now have Folders, Archives, Text Files, and Documents. I have "Include folders in Home" checked. The common example is searching on "Amex". Spotlight returns the two folders I have that start with "Amex". Alfred does not return them at all. Just a whole bunch of documents starting with "Amex". I'd love to resolve this and move forward. But I have posted this issue to tech support several times, and I think in this forum as well. At this point I have to either get this working, or I am just going back to Spotlight. Another problem is that Alfred seems erratic. I commonly open a file named "HowTo ~ Config.doc" by entering the first few letters of "Config", but with Alfred it is random as to how many letters I need. Sometimes just the "c" will work. Other times I have to enter as many as 6 letters. This does not make too much sense. Any advice?
  20. Hi... after switching from Alfred v1 to v2 I have issues with finding files while these files are found using Spotlight. I studied and tested all points at the specific help site for search issues (http://support.alfredapp.com/kb:indexing) and tested also to manually rebuild the index with sudo rm -R /.Spotlight-V100 sudo mdutil -i on / sudo mdutil -E / No success. I cannot find any of my files using the whitespace, the "find" or the "open" command. Setting in the preferences are the default settings with "Include folders in home folder" checked. Any idea what can be wrong? Best, Martin
  21. Sorry in advance if this behavior is actually by design or if I missed an existing post on the subject. Most of my scripts are placed in ~/Library/Scripts since this appears to be the spot most apps like to default to. When switching to Alfred from LaunchBar (from Quicksilver), I none of my scripts showed up. Then I noticed the "Excluding ~/Library" note under the "Include folders in Home" checkbox in the preferences. Okay, I thought, I'll just add ~/Library explicitly to the Search Scope list. No dice. I then tried adding ~/Library/Scripts to the search list. Still no luck getting Alfred to find my scripts. So, the "bug", or feature request, is: - If a path is added to the Search Scope list, this path is guaranteed to be searched. Thanks, David. My setup is as follows: OSX 10.8.4 Alfred v2.0.5 (202) A snapshot of my search preferences... Okay... I've given up trying to upload a picture. If there is a help document for how to do this (should be obvious, but maybe my coffee hasn't fully kicked in), that would be great.
  22. I'm using OS X 10.6.8 with Alfred 2.0.4 When I'm in web search and click on the button 'add custom search' nothing happens. I get no drop down boxes, nowhere to place the URL, nothing. I have tried a number of times, the same happens every time. Appreciate your help
  23. Hello, fellow workers of flow! I've just thrown together a new workflow that searches and sets OpenMeta tags and opens files that have already been tagged. You can download it here! Just install it, then enter "tags" to display—after about a second—a list of all the tags currently set on your system. Select a tag and press Return to add it to the Finder selection's current tags, or keep typing. In which case the workflow will search through the tags on your system for tags containing and related to your query. (Note that "related to" really means "related to": if a document is tagged "alice" and "bob," searching for "bob" will turn up "alice" as related.) It'll also list documents tagged with your query. Select a tag and hit Return to tag the Finder selection (again), or choose a document and hit Return to open it. Hitting Tab while a tag is selected will autocomplete to that tag, making it a cinch to search for tagged documents. In the updated version, also at the link above, holding down Ctrl while pressing Return will remove the chosen tag from the Finder selection or, if a file is highlighted in Alfred, clear all tags from that file. The updated version is also a bit greedier with the metadata attributes it sets, so that stale data won't be left behind for other apps to potentially use by mistake. So, have fun, tag away, and enjoy using OpenMeta without paying $29 for Tags.app!
  24. For those who use site:domain.com keyword a lot on Google, allow me to present you the Site Search Workflow for Alfred 2. How to Use If you have Alfred 2 installed and the Powerpack enabled, download and install this workflow. Then use the keyword "site" and follow the pattern below to search a website on Google: site domain.com keyword For example, if you want to search lucifr.com for alfred, just type “site lucifr.com alfred” and the results will be showed in a drill-down list in Alfred. More, open a result with shift key pressed, the URL of your choice will be copied to clipboard. Notice: A free Google Custom Search API is used in this workflow. Due to Google’s limitation, the max request is 100 per day. Since there might be too many request, you might want to acquire your own API and replace the $key value in the Script Filter part of this workflow.
  25. The Voice Search Workflow opens Google's search page in Chrome and activates the voice search. Upon a successful search, search terms are copied to the clipboard.
