  1. I had this alfred.preferences file appear somewhere in my file system. I moved it to another directory and now my workflows in Alfred are missing. I don't want to spend time recreating my workflows. How do I quickly fix this if I can?
  2. I installed a bunch of workflows on my MBA. They all work perfectly. I went to sync with my Mac Mini (using DropBox) and I'm having issues with some of the workflows. The two I noticed had problems were the Google Instant Search and the Pinboard bookmark search. The workflows show up, but they don't operate correctly. Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a limitation on some of the workflows where they have to be manually installed on each machine? I've restarted Alfred and run the clear cache process.
  3. Hi guys! It would be awesome add a new argument in triggers' hotkey. I miss be able to use hotkeys over files that I found in Alfred's search. For instance, Imagine I search 'ios' and Alfred shows me the file/folder I was looking for. Then I press CMD + D and one action is triggered over the selected file in Alfred. Yes, I know that I can do this using Alfred's actions but I guess it's more comfortable be able to use hotkeys sometimes, isn't it? I hope you can find this helpful.
  4. I've some doubts how it works the sync when you make changes to a workflow, the only way I could sync the changes made was to export it after editing directly in Alfred preferences, and then reimport to make the tweaked version sync. Is there any way around? It would be nice to have a "reload workflow" option, that way we could edit the scripts from the sync folder and see it happen. Thank you
  5. I made a couple of workflows: PHP functions php {query} Shows function description in subtext, enter will bring you to php.net for full documentation. Download: http://cl.ly/MHVj Drupal API d {query} Shows Drupal 7 functions available with query, enter brings you to api.drupal.org. d6 {query} d7 {query} d8 {query} Shows Drupal X functions available with query, enter brings you to api.drupal.org. Download: http://cl.ly/MAzw Purge Memory free Purges and frees up memory. (hotkey ctrl+alt+cmd+m can also be used) Download: http://cl.ly/MBc6 The PHP and Drupal workflows are highly based on "Google Auto Complete" by David Ferguson. Cheers.
  6. This is best explained with an example: The Amazon Suggest and Google Suggest workflows work fine on fast internet connections. On a slow connection however, it can take a noticable amount of time to load the suggestions. To make those Workflows more usable, i tried to alter them to output the input value as first feedback item, and do that before any connection is even made. The problem now is, that the output of a script is only read once, when the script finished executing. This python script: import time xml = """ <items> <item uid="0" arg="~/Desktop" valid="YES" autocomplete="Desktop" type="file"> <title>Desktop0</title> <subtitle>~/Desktop</subtitle> <icon type="fileicon">~/Desktop</icon> </item> """ print(xml) time.sleep(5) xml = """ <item uid="0" arg="~/Desktop" valid="NO" autocomplete="Desktop" type="file"> <title>Desktop1</title> <subtitle>~/Desktop</subtitle> <icon type="fileicon">~/Desktop</icon> </item> <item uid="0" arg="~/Desktop" valid="YES" autocomplete="Desktop2" type="file"> <title>Desktop2</title> <subtitle>~/Desktop</subtitle> <icon type="fileicon">~/Desktop</icon> </item> </items> """ print(xml) outputs all items, but does so only after 5 seconds, while i think the expected behaviour would be to output the first item immediately, and then the other ones after 5 seconds. A related problem I have is that when a script outputs multiple <items> groups, only the first one is processed. If Alfred would only read the last one, and combined with the previous problem, a script could also change feedback items while it is running.
  7. I have a number of VPN accounts that I need to log in and out of throughout the day, so I thought I would create a workflow where I could type "vpn" and then have Alfred show a list of VPN's I could choose from. The list of choices would come from an AppleScript something like this: tell application "System Events" set np to network preferences get name of every service of np whose kind is 12 end tell This seems like a job from a Script Filter using osascript, but I can't find any information on what that AppleScript should return to get Alfred to display the list of results. It says "The custom filter must return results in a specific order. See the documentation for more information." Unfortunately, I can't find any such documentation. Any guidance on how to do this? Thanks, Rob
  8. Hi, I have a pretty noob question. I am trying to hack around with some of the workflows that I have seen in the community and make a few of my own. I am having trouble adding workflows that I have modified to Alfred. I have been zipping them up and then adding the .alfredworkflow extension to them, and when I double click them alfred opens but the workflow is not added. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. It'd be great to allow workflow updates/bug fixes through some kind of built-in update system. It should check a repository master branch for new commits (on GitHub for example), and pull if there's any - or at least give the user the option to. Currently you have to keep an eye on every workflow developers' blog/twitter account to get notified about updates. An app that does something like this is Sublime Text 2's unofficial package manager called "Package Control".
  10. I have my workflows hosted on GitHub, you can check them out and submit pull requests with any changes you think would be good. https://github.com/cwagdev/AlfredWorkflows
  11. I use zsh as my primary shell and have added a few crucial directories to $PATH in my ~/.zshenv: - $HOME/.rvm/bin (allows use of rvm ruby) - /usr/local/bin (Homebrew binaries) - /usr/local/mysql/bin (mysql executable) - a personal scripts directory This prevents me from needing to specify absolute paths in many of my scripts. As far as I know, bash lacks a file that is automatically sourced for scripts (non-interactive shells); instead you need to set the BASH_ENV environment variable to point to such a file. I'd like to avoid setting this in all of my Alfred bash scripts, so typically I just run `zsh -c "PATHTOMYSCRIPT ARGS"` for Alfred workflows. This is just a hoop I have to jump through though, and it would be nice if /usr/bin/zsh were added directly to the language list.
  12. I use Elements for a lot of little note taking stuff on iOS, and having a dedicated filter for it in Alfred makes it easy to pull up those docs on my Macs. Simple, yet effective. Elements Workflow / File Filter
  13. That's something I felt the need for with v1 already, now that what used to be Hotkeys in v1 also are Workflows, I'd appreciate an option to group Workflows in folders even more. In v1, I currently have 41 extensions installed and 18 hotkeys configured, which would sum up to 59 items in the Workflow sidebar in v2. That's quite a list to scroll. Apart from having these sorted alphabetically, I'd love to be able to put them into groups/folders, e.g. one for extensions covering aspects of my private life, one for professional tasks, a group for my own extensions, another for extensions I have under development, or even extensions that are specific to clients of mine (e.g. extension triggering client-specific build-/deployment tasks).
  14. A way to customise the results returned from a file search e.g: Access to the returned xml and a way to pass this to a script filter Access to the Alfred search api which could be used directly from a script filter (I'm currently using a scripted Spotlight search which works, but I presume Alfred does some of his own indexing/other optimisations of the search) Thanks Tom
