  2. The initial motive is to automatically use current front browser's site for site search. Current it includes google suggestion, instant search, site search and related search. Suggestions are welcome. Check it out in Github: http://zhaocai.github.com/alfred2-google-workflow/ It is also an example to use bundler to include gems in an alfred workflow. 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. Installation Two ways are provided: You can download the Google.alfredworkflow and import to Alfred 2. This method is suitable for regular users. You can git clone or fork this repository and use rake install and rake uninstall to install. This method create a symlink to the alfred workflow directory: "~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows". This method is suitable for developers.

  3. 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!
  4. 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). ❤️
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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/zqzten/alfred-web-search-suggest It currently supports these websites: Google Wikipedia Wolfram|Alpha Amazon IMDB 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. Hi everyone, Just starting to play with Alfred Workflows a little bit and I find it amazing! I created a very simple workflow to launch a youtube search, so that instead of : finding Chrome Cmd + T Entering youtube.com Waiting for page to load Click in the search input field Type in your search Enter Wait for the page to load It becomes : Ctrl + Space Type in yt your search Enter Wait for the page to load I timed it and it now takes me 5seconds from the moment I want to search for something to the moment I have the search results displayed, compared to 30sec before.. depending of how many times a day you research something on youtube, it adds up to a few minutes gained every day Hope you guys enjoy it. You can download the workflow here : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6iNJEvkpFeedlg5UVV0OGZGV1k Note : I know this is a very (very) simple workflow, but I searched the forum and couldn't find anything, so may be it can help someone out some day.

  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. This workflow helps search your Google Chrome/Chromium bookmarks realy fast with unicode support. For more info please see: http://mdreizin.github.io/alfred-workflows/#chrome-bookmarks
  22. Has anyone done any workflows for Daylite? I am trying to do one that will search Daylite from Alfred with a keyword like "dl project". It would be great if it would display results in Alfred, but if it could go to Daylite and display them that would work too. Also, adding a quick note, contact, or task would be great too. perhaps if you could type in "dl" it would display a list of those actions in Alfred. Any help would be appreciated as I am having no luck Thanks! Ethan
  23. I frequently use Alfred's built-in search for LinkedIn. This morning the built-in search is resulting in a 404 at LinkedIn. I am guessing Microsoft is changing how search works now that they have acquired LinkedIn. A successful search in LinkedIn today returns a URL of the from: https://www.linkedin.com/vsearch/f?orig=SPCK&keywords={query}. I am guessing this is different from the built-in search. If I create a custom search with this search URL it works fine. Is there a way to edit the built-in search to work with this new URL format?
  24. I have 2 custom web searches for google drive "gd" and "gdu" where "gdu" has a {query} in the url keyword search url gd https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/my-drive gdu 2 https://drive.google.com/drive/u/{query}/my-drive They both work as expected alone. but when they are both enabled the "Enter" choice is always the most previous one that was used. Meaning if the last one I used was gdu 2 (which worked) When I type in the second one "gd"it completes to gdu and waits for the query input even though it has the EXACT query. CASE Types in "gd" first option provided is: gdu second option provided: gd Presses enter: typed in text changes to "gdu" pressing enter with "gd" autocompletes to "gdu" and waits for input. Question: Is there a way for exact matches to populate the FIRST result in Alfred?? What I want no matter what the previous query was. CASE Types in "gd" Executes Just starting with Alfred (Launchers in general, other than spotlight) and I'm really liking it.
  25. I'd like a workflow that can search Microsoft OneNote for Mac (notebooks, sections, pages) and possibly also create notes. Alternatively, how would I be able to build this myself?
