  1. I am trying to build a custom URL builder for a bunch of my work URL. I have the following script but it seems that open URL is not detecting the URL. For open URL I put `{query}`. What am I missing? function run(argv) { var appType = argv[0]; var theEnv = argv[1]; var url = 'https://www.google.com'; return url; } What am I missing? The URL it opens is `https://www.google.com%0a`
  2. Very new user here just bought licence today so bear with me. I understand that to launch an application I just have to bring up Alfred, start entering the application name and once it's found, I should enter and the application will be launched. In my case when I press enter, it opens the Application folder in Finder with the application selected. Then when I hit enter again it selects the text of the application name so that I can rename it which is not what I want. I need for it to actually start the application in question so I can use it. Thanks.
  3. In php you can include other php files. Can I also do that with bash script in Alfred?
  4. It's very bizar I have this script in Alfred: ####################################### #Exiftool utility for Alfred workflow # ####################################### set -x IFS=$'\t' read -ra files <<< "${file_list}" command=${command} #Located at the arg block after the List Filter in the workflow sourceFiles="/Users/$USER/temp/" case $command in basRen) #Basic rename ${exiftool} -d "%Y-%m-%d %H,%M,%S%%-c" '-filename<${DateTimeOriginal} $Make-$Model.%e' "${files[@]}" ;; k_basRenExtFile) #Basic rename with an extra added name from a query ${exiftool} -userparam extName
  5. Is it possible to use the same key combination in different hotkeys when they're assigned to different apps? In other words, can I assign the same combination of keys to different apps (by adding the app to the Related Apps panel of the hotkey, and selecting the option that only activates it when the app has focus)? This is something that has always confused me about Alfred, so I wanted to check to see if I was doing something wrong. From what I can tell, Alfred won’t let you assign the same key combination to more than one hotkey - even when they only operate when different apps h
  6. I have no knowledge of coding or anything like that, but I'm trying to create a list filter that will activate another list filter. I already know how to make a list filter, but have been unsuccessful trying to get a list filter to activate another. Basically what I'm trying to do is create a workflow that shows a menu of items and when I click one of those items, it'll then show another list of items.
  7. Trying to run an Alfred workflow and I kept getting this error: Code 1: osascript: no such component "JavaScript". A google search turns up an Alfred forum post and linked think different post suggesting to delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.ScriptEditor2.plist and reboot. But in my case it didn't solve anything. Not only Javascript is missing, Applescript too: Confirmed on the command line (osalang -l), although my Applescript and Javascript components are present in /System/Library/Components... ➜ osalang -l ...crickets ➜ ll /System/Library/Co
  8. I've installed the latest version of Alfred 1.2 (220), on a brand new install of Mac Catalina 10.15.4 - when I try to search for Activity Monitor or Disk Utility or anything else, I just see this: I have the default settings and I tried to Reload Afred Cache. I also tried to search and followed the upgrade guide (but I am not upgrading). My settings look like this: Any ideas?
  9. Lock is not working although Sleep, Shutdown etc. do work. There is an error message in the Console.app: This seems to suggest permission problems. Alfred has been enabled in Accessibility, but NOT in Automation. That's another thing that's weird, as Alfred doesn't appear in Automation, like described in this post: https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/12182-solved-alfred-not-in-automation-settings/.
  10. Hi, I'm trying to create a workflow that can copy paths for later use. Frist I create a new workflow and add a file action to it that accepts multiple lines then I enter a copy to clipboard module that says {query} I run this script by selecting 2 files and double tap the command key and choose my test script and I paste it textedit the result: /temp/test 1/MapA/test (2).JPG /temp/test 1/MapA/test (1).JPG the thing is when I drag the 2 files to a terminal window I get this: /test\ 1/MapA/test\ \(1\).JPG /test\ 1/MapA/test\ \(2\).JPG f
  11. Hi all, I am using a list filter to select and pass an argument (which is a URL), but once I select an item I would like to show the corresponding title and the subtitle in a notification at the end of the workflow. How do I reference them? In other words, I would like to save for future use not only the Arg variable, but also Title and Subtitle variables. Thanks!! Giovanni
  12. Extreme Rookie Question: I there a way to make an "Insert Today's Date" shortcut? ( ie: 12/05/20 format) TIA.
  13. Is it possible to type a snippet via a hotkey combination? I have not thus far found a way to accomplish this task?
  14. Hey all, I'm trying to create a workflow and don't know where to start. For work, I have to enter customer reviews manually, and to do so, I have to copy their email address. I right click on the email address and select "copy link location" (Firefox). The company formats this URL as "https://www.examplecompany.com/insights/customers/details/customer@fake.com" I want to strip "https://www.examplecompany.com/insights/customers/details/" out and leave just the "customer@fake.com" in clipboard. I'm sure this is possible, but where do I start? I only know a litt
  15. Is it possible to make a workflow which will trigger action on files selected in the finder? For example if i select files in finder and hit the workflow hotkey it will open those files in a specific app (which i will select with the "Open File" action). ? Thanks, Ben
  16. Hi all! I appreciate your help with this challenge. This may be super obvious and easy. How can you add a workflow to default search? Here's what I mean. I added an awesome workflow called Notion.so Instant Search Workflow so that typing "ns {query}" will search my Notion account. I love it. I hope to also include these Notion workflow search results in my Alfred searches for everything: - I hope to just type my query into Alfred and then see a mixed list of local files and Notion pages. - A second best option would be if I could type a different
  17. I find it hard to believe that Alfred cannot assign Finder tags to selected files (file action). The official guide tells me to go get info: that is terrible: why do I need Alfred if I have to go that route?
  18. Hi, I have a cron job using an external trigger to open Alfred's search box. If the alfred search box is already open, it closes it and open a new one instead. I'd like to "skip" a specific cron execution if Alfred's search box is already opened Can I know if it's open programmatically / or through a component in the workflow? Thanks
  19. Consider my two workflows, projectA and projectB. I only ever have one of those workflows enabled at a time. I would like to have the same "Hotkey" in both Workflows. But Alfred won't let me, is it trying to prevent collisions between hotkeys? Can I override this?
  20. Hi, I'd expect that after changing my preferences folder, it will also affect location of the workflows (including their working directories). But somehow it only affects location of the Alfred.alfredpreferences But it does not change Workflow Data location. Here an example: In my workflow, I use these two variables. Below values when using a default location: alfred_workflow_data /Users/jhartman/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Workflow Data/carlosnz.timezones2 alfred_preferences /Users/jhartman/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Alfre
  21. Hello all as I understand the default in keyword allows to search contents of a file, but cannot be limited to a certain extension (all parts of the search expression will be used to match against the contents) the File Filter node in custom workflows allows to filter by extension, but requires to provide the UTI and does not allow to simply search for ".txt" as an extension. Determining the list of available UTIs and their respective extensions is not trivial Is my understanding of above behaviour correct?
  22. Have just done a clean install (i.e. uninstalled Alfred 3 first) to Alfred 4.0.1 b1078. Running on macOS Mojave 10.14.5 on a MacBook Pro (13 inch, 2017, Four thunderbolt 3 ports) Have been able to set the "macOS Accessibility preferences" and the "macOS Contacts preferences" but as the title says unable to set the other 2 preferences as Alfred 4 does not appear in the selection settings. See attached screenshots. Have searched but can't see anyone else having this problem. Look forward to a solution.
  23. Alfred 4 MacBook Pro Catalina 10.15.3 I'm setting up a new MacBook and I'm having trouble getting Empty trash to work. I have the Empty Trash system feature activated with 'e' as the keyword. When I try to use it, it opens Evernote instead. I don't have any Evernote workflows and (as far as I can tell, no other keyboard shortcuts set up for Evernote). In my system preferences, I have given Alfred access to Accessibility and Full Disk Access, but I can't figure out how to add apps to Automation - there's no '+' sign. Any suggestions on how to get th
  24. I already enabled the option to search my safari bookmarks while typing on Alfred, but it doesn't show! I have tried both option, with the keyword and without it but none work. Running latest ver. 4.0.8[1135] and lates macOS
  25. @Vero Hi, I know that there are workflows to paste text from the clipboard, but can I use a workflow that copies text? In Google Sheets, I have 4 cells in a row and I want to setup a workflow using a Hotkey to: Copy cell 1 to the clipboard, move to cell 2 (Key Combo: Right), copy cell 2 to clipboard, move to cell 3 (Key Combo: Right) etc. Can this be done? Thank you.
