  1. Performance seems to be a tricky thing to diagnose, since it might be related to the individual's system specs or other configurations... but I believe I've noticed pretty consistently that larger workflows (i.e. with tens or hundreds of objects) has really choppy/jerky rendering performance when scrolling around. I expect the kind of dampening scroll effect in Apple Maps, but perhaps I'm comparing apples and oranges? I recorded what I'm seeing when scrolling around @vdesabou's epic Spotify Mini Player workflow here: https://dropover.cloud/aac3de Hopefully
  2. I created a simple workflow to make it easy to use a hotkey to add packaging tracking numbers of Deliveries.app. Get Deliveries Toolkit for Alfred It also offers keywords “add”, “track” or just a “+” followed by a space and then paste the tracking number to add a package to Deliveries: I also sent out this tip in my new Alfred newsletter.
  3. I've been exploring Raycast and one of its benefits is its deeper integration with SAAS like GitHub, Jira, Zoom, G Suite, Asana, and others. Given that all of these providers require authentication, I think it could be incredibly powerful if Alfred made it easier for Workflow developers to get API tokens from the most popular providers using a standard Workflow Object (either an Action (i.e. Sign the User In) or Utility (i.e. Get Access Token)). I realize this would require that Workflow developers would need to get API keys and do some extra leg work, but what I would
  4. Currently if I right-click on an object, I get an expanded menu: But if I right-click on a connection line, I get a minimal menu: It seems like double-clicking on a connection line between two objects should cause a contextual insertion menu to appear: Thoughts?
  5. As I balance all sorts of projects in different fields, I create workspaces for myself using Alfred Workflows (keyword for the project opens all Apps, Websites, Finder Folders, scripts, etc. required for project). Often, there are many web pages and I creating URL actions for each is tedious. I would really love a "Open Multiple URLs" Action where I can paste in a bunch of URLs, separated by line breaks, and the action will open all of them upon trigger. Thanks for the excellent product!
  6. Update: I've finally finished cleaning up my repo and putting each Workflow and Theme into its own top-level directory. I think this will allow me to keep tabs on improvements, issues, and more over time. --- So it now seems like I'm going to be sharing/publishing several Alfred Themes and Workflows over time... (woohoo!). So far I've preferred to keep all of my themes and workflows in one master directory (probably because I saw someone else do this) but now I'm thinking (especially with how OneUpdater and @deanishe's Self-updating seem to work) that I shou
  7. I make many keyword-based Workflows and I would find it incredibly efficient to be able to quickly duplicate an object using ⌘-D. Currently I can hit ⌘-C and then ⌘-P (copy and paste), or right-click and choose copy and then right-click and paste: ...but many apps (like Sketch) support ⌘-D to duplicate the selected object or objects: This would greatly improve my efficiency.
  8. I really appreciate how the GitHub Desktop app makes it easy to open repositories with different tools, using different keyboard shortcuts: I'd find it really helpful if Alfred Workflows offered the same functionality, and in particular if this "Open Workflow folder in Finder" allowed me to right-click and choose to open with a specific app, i.e. Atom, TextMate, or some other editor. Of course it would also be great if keyboard shortcuts were supported too.
  9. I'm a heavy user of Bjango's iStat Menus, using it to check my system stats frequently. I also happen to be a heavy Alfred user, making my mouse trips up to the menu bar for iStat Menus feel really infuriating. I'd ideally like to open iStat Menus menu bar items using Alfred keywords. For example, if I type in "cpu" in Alfred, it will open the CPU stats from the menu bar, "ram" for "RAM", etc. I've searched everywhere for a workflow like this but can't find anything. I've conducted some research, mostly around how to get a readout of what menu bar items are called by the SystemUISe
  10. Christmas Wish for Alfred: I wish users had some control over the size of the left panel in Alfred's Preferences (not the sidebar, but the panel next to it). As shown below, I'd like to be able to drag the panel right - at times, when viewing my Workflows - as the current fixed version doesn't allow users to see much of their workflows' names. Personally, I keep a lot of resources to use as examples for building or modifying new workflows, but it's impossible to see their titles or descriptions under the current space allotment (i.e., even if I went to a less ridiculous naming conv
  11. Up until recently, my preferences and workflows synced between machines wonderfully. Something recently broke and I'm not seeing workflows sync anymore through Dropbox. I know Dropbox is syncing on both machines, as I just dropped a file from my desktop machine into it and I see it on my laptop almost immediately. Both Alfred instances are set to sync from my Dropbox folder. But for some reason, the workflows aren't syncing. As a test, I create a new one on my desktop and don't see it syncing over to my laptop. However, if I delete the Alfred.pr
  12. [I originally posted this on Reddit, but I'm posting again here to make sure that it's seen.] The tool itself is fine. Good improvements, but mostly invisible. My kids don't even know how to use the computer when they use a Mac without Alfred. Incredible software! I've been a user since 1.0 and a PowerPack user for just as long. Before that I used the Google task launcher thing, and before that, QuickSilver. What I'm interested in is a thriving workflow community. If you want to find workflows, you need to search too many places. Packal and Pacmax seem abandoned. You have
  13. Hi, I need to know how to get my Workflows from my old laptop to my new one. I have downloaded the app and installed on the new machine but I need to know how to get my workflows.
  14. How do I use a workflow? How do I make it run. As you can tell by my posts I am a 'baby' Alfred user. Thanks
  15. What it does is fast change your system appearance to Dark/Light mode. osmode <option> Further details see DarkOrLight on GitHub. Download | Source
  16. My first (exported) workflow: Do Not Disturb, Limited - Toggle the macOS Do Not Disturb feature, optionally for a specified length of time. I was really inspired by CalmNotifications but I always forgot to toggle it back. Plus, I really wanted the indicator to reflect the current status, which didn't happen when the "set a plist value and kill NotificationCenter" method is used. Releases | Source
  17. 👋 Hi. Long time lurker stopping by to share something I've been working on. I'm calling it Pacmax (PM). Akin to Packal (which is a great website that I'm sure we all know and love) PM is my attempt to fill what voids I feel exist in the current landscape for the other Alfred lovers out there, like myself. Namely: It works from the source, dynamically updating content from GitHub. No accounts are necessary to add Workflows and Themes, because I'm curating submissions. Adding to PM is as simple as submitting the GitHub repository. Repos with files that use the appro
  18. Hi there! I wanted to ask if there is a way, with a button shortcut to have a file open in Photoshop? For example, I have jpegs automatically open in Photoshop by default through my Mac SysPrefs... but I still have pngs open in Preview. Is there a way to have a button to have it "open in... application" or just "open in Photoshop" as an option, like how we can press Shift or CMD to preview or open the file location? Thanks!
  19. It would be great when you say that "we have over a dozen examples and over 40 templates" (or words to that effect) if you appended that webpage (Alfred Blog > Tips and Tricks > Learn to Create Workflows with Alfred's Built-In Examples) with a follow-on webpage and link with a list of those examples and templates that you speak of, serving as a repository for us to go to for a one stop place to download from.
  20. I understand that I can copy the Open Apps examples, paste in my 3rd party apps and start them using the example workflow; What I don't understand is, what do I do with the apps from my remote after I have opened them. There is no keyboard interface that comes with the workflows so I can't edit the files I open in these apps; so why bother opening an app from my remote if I can't do anything with it after I open it??? I may seem to be as dumb as a post to you but I just don't get it. (at least not yet)(I haven't quit trying).
  21. It would be great if the workflow sidebar could be flexible making it convenient for me to resize it to fit my workflow descriptions.
  22. I'm just getting started with creating my own workflows and I have a couple questions I haven't found the answers for yet after a bunch of searching, reading and testing. A quick note to begin with, I'm writing this partially as an exercise to improve me proficiency with AppleScript, as frequently painful as it is. It does seem like a good workflow to use it for since its functionality is almost entirely reading information from and sending commands to the iTunes AppleScript Dictionary. JXA is a little further down the to-learn list. 1. What is the proper way (if there
  23. Hi all, I'm trying to run a node.js script with Alfred, using this workaround: http://remy.bach.me.uk/blog/2014/03/writing-alfred-workflows-in-node/ It seems to work to get scripts to run without modules, but when I try to use the npm 'fast-csv' module, running the Alfred workflow with my script gives me the error "Cannot find the module 'fast-csv'". I've installed 'fast-csv' globally, so I'm not sure what else to try. (The script runs correctly when using the terminal.) Any ideas? Thanks
  24. Hi Everyone! New to Alfred and its world of workflows. I'm interested in creating my first two workflows. This is what I'm hoping to achieve: 1. Copy the contents of a text file (whether it's txt, nfo, html, rtf etc.) to the clipboard. I know there's a terminal command for that: pbcopy. I want to have this ability either through File Actions or as a workflow input. 2. Define a workflow input to open the most recently download file (in other words, the most recently added file in the macOS's Downloads folder). Help would be very apprec
  25. Thanks in advance for the help! I'm trying to pass two (or multiple) variables to AppleScript. For example, “keyword query1 query2” and then get both arguments into AppleScript. Or something like “keyword query1^query2” and then split them. I feel like I’m almost there, but missing something… I guess I should add that I’m using Alfred 3.5.1 with Powerpack. I read this article: but my dumb brain couldn’t figure it out… Any help would be greatly appreciated. My use case for this particular workflow is AppleScipt, but I'd be interested in knowing how to do the sam
