Here is a simple workflow the combines several basic (and frequently used) commands to help speed up your processes. There are several other workflows that do one or a couple of these... but I just combined them into one.

I made an alfred (v1) extension which I ported over to a workflow. It not only purges inactive memory, but also shows the amount purged, e.g. "1024 MB Purged". It's only requirement is python, which I'm pretty sure is pre-installed on macs, so there *should* be no issues in that respect. Important Note - If this workflow is not working for you: This workflow sometimes requires Xcode Command Line Tools to use the purge command. To download the tools, you can do one of the following (and only one as if you do more it can cause issues): Download Xcode from the Mac App Store and go to Preferences -> Downloads -> Components and download Command Line Tools Register for a free account at http://developer.apple.com and go to https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action, search for command line and download the latest version of Command Line Tools for your version of OS X If you are running OS X Snow Leopard, you can either do 1 or download the command line tools from https://github.com/downloads/kennethreitz/osx-gcc-installer/GCC-10.6.pkg, as Apple does not provide a version of Command Line Tools for OS X 10.6 on developer.apple.com You can download it at http://db.tt/mdQCdaT5 I would be really grateful for any feedback
Hey all, I tried finding a RAM-freeing workflow on the forums; I failed, so I made this. It uses the UNIX "purge" command to free RAM. It WILL cause your system to freeze up for a few seconds or more, depending on various factors. I don't know if this is the Apple-recommended method of freeing RAM, but it certainly helps me.
