  1. WatchList saves your media and streams to a list, eases the choice of what to play next and gets rid of it when you’re done. For local content, select the files and directories to add and apply the Add to watchlist file action. If the move_on_add Workflow Environment Variable is set, the paths will be moved to that directory (ignore once with ⌘). Items will be prepended or appended to the list depending on the add_item_order Workflow Environment Variable. Calling swl adds the URL in your clipboard as a stream (⌘↵ for the full playlist). Use the lists_dir Workflow Environment Variable to pick a custom save location for your data. This allows for easy syncing and cloud backups. Next, interact with your list. Options begin with wl. wlp shows the list of items to play. A reference to each subtitle section can be found at the end. wls calls wlp under the hood, but with a custom sort order. In both cases: ↵ plays the selection. ⌃↵ opens the item’s URL in the default web browser. ⌥↵ downloads a stream (requires DownMedia) or rescans a series’ directory (useful after manual changes). ⌘↵ marks as watched without playing. ⇧↵ appends to a temporary playlist. After adding the desired items, ↵ plays them in order. A playlist which was neither modified nor played for a few minutes will be ignored. ⇧ or ⌘Y shows a Quick Look preview on files and streams. If the top_on_play Workflow Environment Variable is true, the item will be moved to the top of the list before beginning playback. mpv, IINA, and VLC are directly supported. If playback exits with a non-zero code, the item will not be marked as played (hence not trashed). Take advantage of that! wlu is the watched list. Its size is controlled by the maximum_watched Workflow Environment Variable. Actioning an item will mark it unwatched and recover it from the Trash if it find a path with the same name. If the item has an origin URL (shown in the subtitle): ⌘↵ opens it in the default web browser. ⌥↵ copies it to the clipboard. ⇧ or ⌘Y shows a Quick Look preview wle is for reordering, renaming, and manually removing of items. If you use DownMedia it has an option to add the downloaded video files directly to your watchlist. Subtitle reference: There are three types of items: files, series, and streams. streams can be further categorised into single item or playlist. Each result has its name as the top title. The subtitle confers more detailed information and follows this template: ≈ (4) 𐄁 22m 32s 𐄁 691M 𐄁 /Some/Path ≈. Indicates item is a stream. file: N/A. series: N/A. stream: Always present. (4). Number of elements. file: N/A. series: Remaining audiovisual files in directory. stream: Single item: N/A. Playlist: All elements. 22m 32s. Running time. file: Running time of file. series: Running time of first audiovisual file in directory. stream: Combined running time of all elements. 691M. Size. file: Size of file. series: Size of first audiovisual file in directory. stream: N/A. /Some/Path. Path. file: Path of file. series: Path of directory. stream: URL. Download | Source Works well with DownVid PlayAddress
  2. I often need to do something with my last saved or changed files, like a screenshot or a file I just downloaded with CyberDuck or saved from inside an application. Normally I use "Trickster" for that task. It which gives me access to files like recently downloaded, saved or edited files in a quick way but I thought it would be cool to have this in Alfred! After a brief check of existing workflows I could not find any which does the same simple task: List files in the current users home which are modified or created in the last 48 hours. The list is sorted descending by modification time. I also made the result list searchable. Simply type "last" and it will list the last modified files, you can press space and some letters to filter the results. You also can press Return to open the file or CMD+Return to Browse to the file with Alfred (and then use File Actions on it). https://github.com/oderwat/alfredworkflows/blob/master/Last%20changed%20files.alfredworkflow This workflow uses "workflow class" by David Ferguson (@jdfwarrior) to build the resulting xml data. Besides that it uses a "mdfind" shell command which can be enhanced if you want to change where it searches and what it filters from the results (I filter some filetypes which are unlikely to be interesting for me). I am supporting Updates by the "Alleyoop" Workflow now (Install that workflow from here: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1582-alleyoop-update-alfred-workflows/) Feel free to comment! Last Changed: 2013-04-19 19:06 V1.12: With the new Alfred 2 Update it is finally possible to fix the result order in a supported way (I modified workflow.php to support that). V1.11: Yet another method to fix the result order! Added 'Docoments/My Games' to blacklist. V1.10: Added iTunes to Blacklist (and a rather special personal Blacklist)! V1.9: Fixed problem with missing files when they have the same timestamp. V1.8: Updated to the new way Alleyoop works. V1.7: Changed how files are choosen to include files recently created even if they have an old timestamp. Added Microsoft Office Support files to the blacklist. Added Parallels VM Files to the Blacklist. V1.6: Made the found files in the result list draggable! V1.5: Added Alleyoop Support and fixed another bug with listing order (hopefully the last time now). V1.4: Fixed that the "oldest" entry was always displayed on the top (while the others where in descending order) V1.1: I updated the script to exclude some more files (mysql data, files in ~/Library, Safari Bookmarks)
  3. This workflow adds a file action called "Paste." It will copy the selected file to the clipboard and then paste it in the front application. It basically automates the copy and paste process where you need to copy and paste files. It will handle multiple files, so if you have multiple files selected, it will paste each of them into the current application. It also adds a number of other files actions including Duplicate, Move to Trash, New Folder, and Open in New Finder Tab. Click here to download the workflow.
  4. Resize an image, selected in Finder, to a target width by respecting image ratio. Usage Select an image in Finder, open Alfred and enter rimage and enter a value for the target width, e.g. rimage 300. The image will be resized to target width by respecting ratio. Works with .jpg and .png. http://t.cn/R42PAI2
  5. Hey everyone, this is probably a very dumb question but I am new to MacOS ans Alfred and just can't find the answer. So I have installed Alfred and copied and pasted my documents folder, where I basically have all of my files that I need, from Windows to my new Macbook. I have also added the documents folder to the Search Scope and enabled "Folders in Home". However, I can't find a single file from this folder using Alfred. I am probably just doing a big beginners mistake but I would appreciate the help Cheers!
  6. This Workflow allows you to easily create a new file in the Mac OS Finder by typing new into Alfred. You can also setup pre-populated templates for filetypes (instructions on my blog). I have also added a hotkey option. You can specify the hotkey from your Alfred Workflow window (I find CTRL + ALT + N works quite nicely). This is a re-write of the Alfred 1.x extension I released last year. Once again I'd like to thank Chris Kalafarski (farski) for improving the first ever version of my script. Download Workflow here (8kb). I hope you find this as useful as I do. To those who may not use Finder, I plan to add Path Finder support at some point in the future!
  7. 1°) What was I doing when the issue happened? - Was trying to add .rar files to Alfred's Buffer on my Mac Mini. Failed. - Tried the same action on my MacBook. Succeded. - Tried to do the same action with .txt files on my Mac Mini. Failed. - Checked Alfred's Buffer settings. Everything looks normal. - Closed and relaunched Alfred. Still failed at adding .rar files to the Buffer. No keyboard shortcut conflict involved. 2°) Was I able to replicate the test ? Yes. 4 times. 3°) Alfred version : Alfred 2 v2.6 (374) (on both Macs) 4°) OS X version: OS X Yosemite (on both Macs)
  8. Overview List hidden files in Alfred from Finder current window or from a select folder in Alfred File Browser (File Action). The workflow does not change Finder files visibility. It will only list those hidden files in Alfred itself. If there isn't any Finder window then the workflow will list hidden files from the user home folder. Usage Keyword Open a Finder window and go to the folder you want Show Alfred and type the keyword hidden or use the hotkey You can filter by typing part of the filename Press Return key to open the file in the default text Editor or, if it is a folder, to see its content File Action Open Alfred File Browser Select a folder Select List Hidden Files action You can filter by typing part of the filename Press Return key to open the file in the default text Editor Download Release date: 13 May 2014 Made on OSX 10.9.2 Requires Alfred 2.3 or later Download Now What's new List hidden folders Show hidden folders content when pressing return key Show file/folder icon Back button to return to the initial folder Requires Alfred 2.3 or later
  9. I'm trying to create a workflow that searches only for Premiere CC project files on my machine (or mounted network drives,) but filtering out any Premiere CC project files that are contained within any folders with the word "Auto-Save" in the title. Is something like that possible? I can create a search like that in Finder, I'm just not sure how to do it in an Alfred workflow. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
  10. Have searched but couldn't find: is it possible, please, to have Alfred 4 Notify me when a certain directory reaches a predetermined size? I put old .dmg and updater files etc into a directory, whose contents I then burn to CD when the size of that directory is around 700 MB. Possible with Alfred? TIA!
  11. Hello everyone, it would be pretty cool if it would be possible to select multiple Files, Clips or whatever from the Clipboard history and paste it. For instance: I would have copied a few files and wanna paste them. Here is an example: If i could now just press Shift+Arrow down to select multiple items and then just paste them that would be awesome If there is another way then lemme know, but else this would be decent to have. Another addition to that would be the ability to change the Shortcut for adding files to the file buffer. Something like ⌘+C and ⌘+V would make the file Buffer/Navigation even better Cheers, Frozen
  12. I'd like to be able to drag a file from, say, the finder onto an alfred app search result to open the file with this app. It was something I was using on quicksilver and missed on alfred from day 1 (I use alfred since 2013) and somehow never suggested the feature, probably because I was way too certain than it'd be implemented at some point.
  13. I've gone through all of the recommended steps multiple times, including reindexing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. Still the only results that return are top level folders (~/Documents), contacts, and system preference panes. When reindexing, I get to the point where it says "Press any key to close Terminal and continue..." I press a key, and it seems to finish in seconds. What's going on?
  14. I would like to have the ability to for instance type a keyword and see a list of favorite files/folders that I have created. This is not a search or filter features, it will just present a static list. thx
  15. Right now Alfred allows full fuzzy matches for app names only, e.g. pto -> Photos. This leads to inconsistent results, when searching for files and also clipboard, snippets etc. I would really like an option to enable the same behavior everywhere, so I can type for instance errcod -> ErrorCodes. Are there any plans to implement this in the future?
  16. I use Nylas email client. When I use the build-in function to send email through my default client (https://i.imgur.com/QNHsfIB.png), it works fine in Nylas (https://i.imgur.com/wxykDqo.png). But when I want to email selected file (https://i.imgur.com/WZ2e7Uj.png), it don't use my set default email client but opens the native mail app (https://i.imgur.com/eDsMlNR.png). Is this a known bug?
  17. get from GitHub https://github.com/jgarza9788/ShowHiddenFiles-Toggle
  18. Hi there everyone, I've just set up Alfred and absolutely love it. However can't seem to activate the ability to search for Google Docs within my filesystem. Alfred doesn't seem to recognise them. Only finds the native pages files. I use Google Docs for everything so would be great for these to show up like they do in the normal finder search. Many thanks
  19. Hi, I just installed ohmyzsh (https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh A collection of themes and plugins to supercharge zsh. Basically, these are jst .zsh and .md files) and wanted to browse through its files and folders. All these these and plugins are installed in a folder located at ~/.oh-my-zsh I created a workflow with a file filter action but couldn't make it work. I guess it is because its files and folders are located in one hidden folder. The workflow works when the folder is renamed ~/oh-my-zsh.
  20. Alfred Edit Files This is a simple workflow I use to quickly open files and directories I specify in a simple CSV file. You simply edit the CSV file specifying the argument you want to search for and the path to that file/folder and that's it. Download You can download the workflow from GitHub. And more information can be found in the README of the workflow. I hope you like it. ?
  21. Alfred 3.4 (850) type = file is ignored on feedback items when workflow variables are also set via arg (i.e. arg is a JSON-encoded alfredworkflow object). Run the following workflow or build your own Script Filter around the JSON feedback. You can hit right-arrow on the first item with a "plain" arg to access File Actions. File Actions don't work on the second item, however. Demo workflow. Script Filter feedback: { "items": [ { "title": "Path, no vars", "subtitle": "This works with File Actions", "type": "file", "arg": "~/Desktop" }, { "title": "Path, with vars", "subtitle": "This doesn't work with File Actions", "type": "file", "arg": "{\"alfredworkflow\": {\"variables\": {\"var1\": \"val1\"}, \"arg\": \"~/Desktop\"}}" } ] }
  22. I am trying to create a workflow that would let me do the following after hitting a keyboard shortcut : - Launch one specific .xlsb file with macros - If the this file is already opened, toggle visibility for the file. The thing is this file has macros. So, every time I hit my keyboard shortcut, Excel closes my file (without asking me if I want to save it), then opens a window where I have to select between "Enable Macros", "Do Not Open","Disable Macros". As I want to enable the macros I have to use my trackpad to select "Enable Macros". Then opens my file. At last! It would be cool if there was a way to toggle visibility for Excel files with macros the same way we can toggle visibility for applications.
  23. I am trying to move 10 .jpg files from one folder to another folder using the Alfred bar ONLY. I typed the name of the Folder my photos are in and from there I realised I can't add them in a buffer. I couldn't search for each of them and add them in a buffer as I do not know their names. (i.e 12222278678578485.jpg, 176456373.jpg, ...) For the moment, I still have to use my File manager, select the files and use the "move to..." action.
  24. Create Folder Structure v1.0.1 This script creates a folder structure defined in a text file. Usage Select the definition text file, then open Alfred, and run “Create Folder Structure”. Definition File Syntax Create an UTF-8 encoded text file (e.g. in TextEdit), and start typing folder names, row by row, one after another. Each one must be placed in a unique row. If a subfolder is required, just indent it with a tab. Folder names can contain any legal characters the OS X supports. Example: First Folder Second Folder First Subfolder of Second Folder Second Subfolder of Second Folder First Subsubfolder of Second Subfolder Third Folder Metanames %date% - Creates a folder named after the current date. Download You can download it from this link. Feedback Feel free to contact me at royaljerry@gmail.com http://www.facebook.com/royaljerry
  25. Hey there, Recently I wanted to exclude all .png files from my file search but I did not find a way to do so. In other words I mostly use the file search feature for searching and opening my folders. Is there a convenient way to search folders only? Thanks, Yannick
