  1. Is it possible to search for files by date created or date modified? For example, I'd like to find all the files created on the 28th of April.
  2. With the addition of the "Web Bookmarks" feature now Alfred indexes Chrome Bookmarks, but it ignores bookmarklets (probably intended). However it would be very useful to me if I could actually search and trigger those excluded bookmarklets from Alfred, ideally in the frontmost browser. I know about some workflows approaching this (AlfredBookmarklet and Bookmarklets) but they requiere me to clone my (currently 50+) bookmarklets list, and AFAIK there's none backup/sync option from there. I would appreciate the extra commodity to do this from Alfred natively. Thank you, cheers! David.
  3. For some reason Alfred (v3.3.2) can't find Xcode on my macOS Sierra MBP (10.12.5). I installed Xcode normally via the App Store to /Applications. I also tried to reset the Alfred search scopes, but that didn't help. As far as I can tell, Xcode is the only application that Alfred can't find (aside from the other developer tools in /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Applications)
  4. I've become a convert to the use of tags in macOS as a way of organizing files. I'm moving away from storing my files in folders and sub-folders since there's really no need when it's faster to use Alfred just to search for it. So I'm trying to build a simple search workflow that will allow me to search for files and folders by tag, but allow me to refine my search by adding more search terms. If i'm searching my PDFs for files tagged "javascript", say, I'd like to go be able to add more tags to narrow the search. It's not so bad when there are only ten files with the tag, but when yo have a hundred it becomes obvious that being able to refine the search by adding more terms is essential. I have a workflow that (like the built- in search) does a great job of searching for a single tag. How do I give it the extra functionality I want? Here's what I have... It's as simple as it gets. It is configured to search for tags and not title keywords: Anyone have any ideas?
  5. I almost didn't post this as a bug, because I'll leave it to Alfred's parents to decide. It's quite possible a "behavior subtlety" which has "evolved." But on the chance it was an unintended change: Build 875, Monday 25th September 2017, although this seems to have been a behavior since the new bookmark search behavior instead of something peculiar to this build. I'm still holding off on installing High Sierra until we get the all-clear with Adobe Illustrator and a few production tools. So this is in the current Sierra. For a long time I've organized browser bookmarks using full names and unique abbreviations in parentheses, e.g. National Hurricane Center (NHC) Storm Prediction Center (SPC) National Weather Service (NWS) Then I would recall such things using the abbreviation. "<Search box> NHC " or "<Search box> SPC" In earlier versions, the search would return links including the above examples. In the current version, the pattern does not return as a match unless I also type the first parenthesis. Now required: "<Search box> (NHC" or "<Search box> (SPC" I don't know that I have any objection to this, but I mention it in case it was unintended. Or perhaps the unlikely case where it has changed the way a script behaves. I certainly don't mind changing my scheme if the new behavior is preferred. :-) Thanks very much for the ongoing improvements and support of Alfred!

The command is bundle install --standalone. Usage 1. Search Suggestion Keyword g: provide google search suggestions based on {query}. 2. Instant Search Keyword gi: get instant google search results in Alfred based on {query}. 3. Site Search Keyword gs: get instant google search results of front browser's site in Alfred based on {query}. Supported browsers are: Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, OmniWeb, etc. You can use site:example.com query if you do not want to search for current front browser's site. 4. Related Search Keyword related: get related google search results of front browser's site in Alfred based on {query}. Supported browsers are: Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, OmniWeb, etc. You can use related:example.com query if you do not want to search for current front browser's site.

  9. tl;dr: A new Alfred workflow to launch Zapier workflows from your keyboard. Ever wanted a quicker way to add data to your web apps? Say you get an email from a potential customer, and you want to add them as a new lead to your CRM. You have to copy their email address, open your CRM app in your browser, find your Lead page, open the Add Lead page, and finally paste in the info. Or if you wanted to find more details about a contact—perhaps to see what products they've bought from your store, or their last email to your support team, or the notes you wrote about your last call with them—you'd need to open a handful of other apps and search in each one manually. Personally, I wanted a simpler way to send template emails. I wanted to enter a contact's name in Alfred and have it find details about the contact in address book, then make a new draft email to them. That's why I made this Zapier for Alfred workflow. Zapier's to web apps what Alfred is to your Mac—it connects 750+ web apps (including Evernote, Salesforce, Shopify, Gmail, PayPal, and much more) so you can build workflows and automate tasks. And with Zapier for Alfred, you can start those workflows from your Mac's keyboard. Everyone will have a different use case, but the core workflow works the same. You'll make a Zapier workflow, and connect it to your Zapier for Alfred workflow in Alfred. Then, to run it, you'll enter some text into Alfred, and this workflow will send it to your Zap to kick off the online workflow you made. Then you can get the results back to your Mac in a Pushbullet notification, email, Dropbox file, or even an SMS message in Messages. Download Zapier for Alfred here, or check out our launch blog post for more details. Looking forward to hearing how you use Zapier with Alfred!
  10. Cribbing from my comment here, I'd love for search in Snippets preferences allow for even greater search sophistication, not just the present 'search whole string as entered' behaviour. At present, if I have a snippet with the contents Thanks for writing!, I can find it in Snippets preferences by searching Thanks for but not Thanks writing. I've got a lot of long letter-y bits in my Alfred snippets, and this behaviour (implicit-Boolean-AND-between-terms, rather than the current string-in-inverted-commas verbatim approach) would help me more easily find the particular snippet I'm looking for (often to edit or consult). ❤️
  11. Hi, I'm trying to move from TextExpander to Alfred Snippets and so far things are going pretty well. BUT, am I correct that when searching Snippets, Alfred is only looking at the name of the snippet and the keyword? As opposed to the actual snippet itself. It sure would be handy if the snippet text itself was also searched. Thanks!
  12. After a short discussion in this thread (with @PopSquirrel) I decided to create a workflow that allows me to use custom actions (i.e. any workflow actions) on files and folders. The intention is to replace the settings that can be made under Advanced > Action Modifiers. I've included the full HOW TO USE below. Download TEMPLATE - File Search with Custom Actions from my GitHub Note: This workflow doesn't do anything "out of the box". It's a template that you can use to create your own customised actions. Examples of usage: Call a File Action workflow without go to the File Action menu. I use this with RenameAction (by @vitor) Use it with basically any workflow that takes a path as input. I use it this way with Open in Finder Tab (by @mix1009) Open a file with a specified app. I have Preview as default app for images, therefore I've added an Open File with Photoshop-action Get creative and comment below Screenshot from my configuration of the workflow: HOW TO USE This workflow allowes you to use custom actions (i.e. any workflow actions) on files and folders. The intention is to replace the settings that can be made under Advanced > Action Modifiers. This is a template workflow - you'll have to add your desired actions, modifers etcetera for the workflow to actually do anyting. Likewise you might want to change the keyword. Personally I use a the same as Alfreds default File Search, a single quote: ' The pink blocks gives you two different paths depedning on if you're actioning a file or folder. You might want to copy these to use with other modifiers as well.
  13. When I search for known files in Alfred, it fails to find them, as you can see in this image comparing Alfred's results with the Finder's results of a search for "yoga". The movies exist on an external drive, called /Volumes/2TB\ SSD\ encrypted/ I have added this volume to the Alfred preferences to be searched. I have reindexed the drive with the movies that Alfred does not see. What is going on? Thanks
  14. A workflow to search Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. https://github.com/o3jvind/Search-Social-Media It'll open a window where you can choose in which area to search for your query. You can select one or as many as you want with "CMD or SHIFT" And they'll will open in different tabs of your favourite browser. HAPPY SEARCHING
  15. I'm surprised I don't see this addressed in the workflow forums or other repositories, but no luck on searches. I'm trying to set up a workflow for a Google search restricted to the past year. I know there is a URL that brings up a search bar with the past year option, but I'd like to get Alfred to do it with the search topic. I'm trying to set up a workflow for a Google search restricted to the past year only. I know there is a URL that brings up a search bar with the past year option, but I'd like to get Alfred to do it with the search topic . FYI, the URL is https://www.google.com/webhp?tbs=qdr:y&gws_rd=cr&ei=7t_RWKWGFcOw0gSlsrmwDg Thanks for the help. Tony
  16. I have published an Alfred Workflow that allows you to search various curated mind maps I have made. It also has an option to just search for study guide learning mind maps that provide the best resources one can take to learn the subject in a guided manner. In future, this will cover every topic one can learn and if you want to improve and change it, you can. Here is the GitHub repository of the workflow and here is the direct download of it. I hope you enjoy it. The cool thing is that if you dislike something or disagree with the way they are structured, you can propose the changes you want to make and thus everyone benefits.
  17. Hi, Could anyone explain if it is possible to search video file with Alfred? I had no luck so far. I went to Alfred preferences - advanced - added video file format, but no luck.
  18. Is there a way to export my custom web searches? I’ve set up a ton of them and need to wipe out the HDD.
  19. Hello everyone! Inspired by the official Google Search suggest workflow, I wrote a search suggest workflow for various popular websites (including some popular Chinese websites!). Compared to the official Google/Amazon workflows, I take advantage of the new JSON format and also provide some additional features such as the language specifier for Wikipedia, short descriptions provided in the subtitles, and quicklook preview for some supported websites. The workflow is hosted on GitHub and you can learn more or get the latest version here: https://github.com/AkikoZ/alfred-web-search-suggest It currently supports these websites: Google Wikipedia Wolfram|Alpha Amazon Pixiv Baidu (百度) Zhihu (知乎) bilibili (哔哩哔哩) Sina Weibo (新浪微博) Taobao (淘宝) JoyBuy (京东) Bangumi (番组计划) Moegirlpedia (萌娘百科) Here's some of the interesting screenshots. May it boost your search!
  20. What I'd like to be able to do is select an image file/s in the Finder, press a hotkey or keyword, and get a reverse Google image search for that image. *Also, the option to directly go to the "All sizes" section of that "Reverse Image Search". THX zx Search by Image
  21. One of the major annoyances I have when wanting to go inside a folder that's in some complicated path is actually writing the whole path. In Terminal, I can define aliases and use Tab completion, but I am hoping Alfred can help me achieve more and easier. I know it already has path navigation, with included Tab completion. But here's a scenario I'm thinking of and suggesting for possible implementation. Say I have a couple of PDFs in a path such as `$HOME/Dropbox/school/cs/1st-year/swift/problem-books-swift/` and I know the author of the book is Alfred McMac. But maybe I have more than one of his books and I can't remember the title. Assuming I only have one folder called "problem-books-swift", I'm hoping Alfred could help me search directly in that folder. For example, I could input "problem-books-swift/ Alfred McMac" and it would limit the searches to that folder only. Is this possible in the present version, i.e. to limit the searches to a certain folder? If so, how would you do this? If not, would you consider implementing it? Is it feasible, do you find it useful? Thank you and many congrats yet again on a totally awesome vital app I'm using from a couple of years!
  22. Hi, In Alfred préférencse, there is no shortcut to focus on search field in the workflow "tab". A simple ⌘+F to access this search will be nice.
  23. Hello I'm a new advanced user on alfred with powerpack. I use also contact module. A missing feature would be to be able to find in contact details. Some use cases : * looking for identity on a missing call : I can not look for a contact from its phone number * looking for a company contact, when I've forgotten his name * looking for a note : I look for a contact from a keyword stored in contact notes Would be great if it would be available, in particular linked with Google Contacts. We can find this feature, for example, in dashboard pane in macos with contacts widget. This feature is available on Contact Filter plugin but is not resilient : not available to have a kind of "LIKE" operator : if phone number is stored as "+337 27 36 356 22", you will find nothing if you type "7273635622" or "+337273635622" ... Regards
  24. I made a workflow to search the Ulysses database for the new Ulysses III. This feature is missing from the app itself (for now) so I put together this workflow to get around that. The workflow simply adds search scopes for Ulysses' "sheet" and "group" filetypes. As a bonus, there's also an "Open in Ulysses" File Action included with the workflow. It works on .txt and .rtf documents, which will come into Ulysses parsed as Markdown. Read more on my site or download Search Ulysses 3.alfredworkflow now.
  25. Huge thank you to Vitor without whom this workflow wouldn't exist : You can download it from here. Or you can view the GitHub page of it with more descriptions of it. Essentially this is an Alfred wrapper over a note taking project I am making and maintaining. It allows you to instantly visit any mind map that I have made. I have been working on this project for the past month and will be updating and maintaining it with more and more quality content as time passes. To get a better sense of what kind of mind maps do exist out there, try out searching for 'alfred' or 'workflows' or 'vim' For more, take a look at the project itself and go through the interactive mind map to get more context of how everything connects.
