  1. What is this? This is a workflow that allows you to run free text searches against your OmniFocus data. Why would I need this? Well, it's difficult to quickly search for, say, a task using OmniFocus' own search box since OmniFocus restricts the results to the current perspective or selection. Other people have noticed this too. Where can I get it? From Packal or GitHub. How do I use it? The README has full instructions but, here's a starter for 10. Search for all tasks within OmniFocus (irrespective of status) with .s
  2. Instant Search This workflow is the translation of Brett Terpstra's LaunchBar script for Alfred. You have to have his Search Link Service installed. For more information, go to http://brettterpstra.com/projects/searchlink/ Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/instant-search-workflow
  3. I would love Alfred to search my email. Gmail and Outlook web both have fantastic search these days. The Mail app seems to be seriously lagging behind. The only reference I can find to Alfred and email is a thread from 2013 about a Powerpack script that doesn't work on Big Sur. Ideally I would like to search (incrementally?!) in OWA or Gmail accounts, but failing that, having similarly amazing search of local mail folders (by subject, date, sender, contents, etc.) Is this completely outside of Alfred's scope? Am I missing an obvious setting somewhere? Is my duck-duck-foo failing me? Thanks!
  4. This workflow enables you to search your hook productivity bookmarks. You can get our workflow from Hook's Alfred page. Regarding Hook and its bookmarks Hook is a truly universal, contextual bookmarking app. It enables you to bookmark and bidirectionally link ('hook together') items from almost any app: such as web pages, files, emails, tasks ( OmniFocus, Things, etc.), etc. For instance, you could bring up the Hook ( ⌘⇧SPACE) popup window on this web page, choose `Copy Link` ( ⌘C), and then paste the link anywhere you want. You could then bring up Hook on a document (in Finder, BBEdit, Drafts, Bear or other apps), bring up Hook again (⌘⇧SPACE), and `Hook to Copied Link` (⌘V).That would hook them together. Whenever you hook items together (or in 2.0, use `Copy Link` or `add bookmark`), Hook creates bookmarks in its database. This workflow, then, lets you browse and search for any Hook bookmark you like. default keyword: hm The default keyword to access this workflow is 'hm' (short for 'hook bookmark') Usage Example: To find all Hook bookmarks that contain `.pdf`, in Alfred type : `hm .pdf` Dependencies This workflow requires version 1.5 or newer of Hook Essentials or Pro. Hook is available from the Hook productivity website: https://hookproductivity.com . Hook requires macOS 10.12.6 or newer. Hook is currently at version 1.8. Documentation This workflow's homepage on the Hook website is here: Free Alfred Workflows for Controlling Hook. Related automation for Hook Brett Terpstra has published a CLI ( command line interface) that enables you to get and create bookmark. Hook's automation is described on its website : Automation of Hook. Hook is a CogSci Apps® invention for your cognitive productivity 😊.
  5. My preferred way to search Google is to limit results to the past year. To do so I use this URL: https://www.google.com/webhp?cr=&tbs=,qdr:y I have attempt to enter that in the "Search URL:" field in Alfred's Preferences so that I could search within Google using that time limit just as I do on a new web tab. However Alfred's response when I click the "Lookup" function is an invalid search. The URL in the dialog box is cut off after the "/webhp" just at the question mark. I have attached a screenshot as illustration. Can anyone provide guidance as to how to use this specific Google search URL as a Custom Search? The intent is so that when I enter a term into Alfred's search field this Custom Search URL would appear as the default search. Then when I hit Return it would enter the searched term in Google's search field and activate the search just as it does for the standard Google URL. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can offer.
  6. Search Goodreads.com from Alfred. Download from GitHub. Search by book/author View your bookshelves and add/remove books List books by author List books in series Open details on Goodreads.com Add custom scripts to pass book data to other programs/URLs See the documentation on GitHub for more information. The workflow will ask you to authorise it to read your Goodreads data (via OAuth) on first run.
  7. This workflow allows you to search browser tabs from Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi & Safari. GitHub: https://github.com/epilande/alfred-browser-tabs Download: https://github.com/epilande/alfred-browser-tabs/releases/latest/download/Browser-Tabs.alfredworkflow Commands chrome tabs {query} – Fetch tabs from Google Chrome and filter based on query. brave tabs {query} – Fetch tabs from Brave Browser and filter based on query. vivaldi tabs {query} – Fetch tabs from Vivaldi and filter based on query. safari tabs {query} – Fetch tabs from Safari and filter based on query. Copy to clipboard Holding the CTRL key while selecting an item will copy the selected tab URL to your clipboard. Demo Screenshot of workflow
  8. Browse, search and open Google Drive files from within Alfred. Get the workflow from Packal or Github URL. This workflow searched your google drive and opens the files in your browser. They keyword is "d" (example d alfred). With enter you can open the entry in your default browser. You have to login (d > login) before you can use the workflow. The login uses OAuth, so you do not need to enter your credentials. Please leave issues if you encounter any problems or star this repo if you found it useful
  9. Fuzzy search across folder subtrees. Update 10/09/2016: Added Alfred 3 support and removed Alfred 2 support. Added ability to self-update. Update 10/04/2014: Added support for glob-style excludes. Unfortunately, these have to be added manually to the settings file at the moment.Update 05/04/2014: Now supports searching files as well as/instead of folders You can now adjust the minimum query length to improve search performance. This Workflow provides partial matching of path components, allowing you to drill down into your filesystem with a space-separated query. Each "word" of the query will be matched against the components of a directory or file's path, so a three-word query will only match at least three levels down from the specified root directory. You can use a File Action to intiate a fuzzy search on a folder or to assign a keyword to perform a fuzzy search on that folder. Download Get the Workflow from GitHub or Packal. Commands fuzzy — List your Fuzzy Folders ↩ — Edit Fuzzy Folder settings ⌘+↩ — Start a Fuzzy Folder search with the associated keyword ⌥+↩ — Delete the keyword–Fuzzy Folder combination fzyup — Recreate the Script Filters from your saved configuration (useful after an update) fzyhelp — Open the help file in your browser Settings You can specify these settings globally as defaults for all Fuzzy Folders or on a per-folder basis. For ad-hoc searches via the Fuzzy Search Here file action, the default settings always apply. Use keyword fuzzy to view and edit settings. Minimum query length — The last "word" of a query must be this long to trigger a search. Default is 1, but increase this number if the search is too slow. This is very often the case if you're searching a large subtree and/or also choose to search files. Search scope — Choose to search only for folders, files or both. Note: In most cases, searches including files are significantly slower. Consider increasing the minimum query length to speed up slow searches. File Actions Fuzzy Search Here — Fuzzy search this folder Add Fuzzy Folder — Set a keyword for this folder for faster fuzzy searching Search result actions ↩ — Open folder in Finder ⌘+↩ — Browse folder in Alfred Bugs, questions, feedback You can open an issue on GitHub, or post in this thread. Licensing, other stuff This Workflow is made available under the MIT Licence. The icon was made by Jono Hunt. It uses docopt and Alfred-Workflow.

  11. Alfred 4 Read about this workflow below. This is an update to address the new Alfred 4 data folder (thanks to xilopaint). DOWNLOAD Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4 for Alfred 4 Description Alfred 3 workflow to search and create notes in Evernote. Search Keywords ens to search in every note field ens @ to search in a selected notebook ens # to search notes with a selected tags You can use ent (search in titles only) or enr (search in reminders) or entodo (search to-do notes) or enrec (search notes updated within a week) or enu (search notes with a source URL) instead of ens. You can select multiple tags to fine tune your searching. Just add a second hash sign and select or type the tag e.g. ens #tag1 #tag2 :my query In addition, you can select a single notebook then tags too e.g. ent @notebook #tag1 #tag2 :my query Note that, if you want to select a notebook and/or tags, the query goes after the colon sign as seen above. Actions Return key to open the note Shift key to preview the note Option key to set a reminder Control key to paste the note text content to the top most application Function key to open the note URL Command key to append text (from clipboard, selected text or typed) or selected file(s) in Finder. After pressing the Command key a new Alfred window will be shown so you will be able to select the text source and the action: Return key will append without date Option key with append with current date Hint: You can also use the Command key to only add tags to a note. To do so, type or select a tag and don't type anything after the colon then select the source "Type a Note" e.g. enn #tag : Note that Alfred Fallback Search is also supported (you have to add it in Alfred 2 Preferences>Features>Default Results, then click Setup fallback results button). Create Keyword enn http://cl.ly/image/3t1e440l1c0Q/enn8.png You can optionally type the note title or, for a more complex creation, follow the syntax below: @Notebook #tag1 #tag2 !reminder :Title @notebook: after typing @ a list of notebooks will be displayed then select one or type it; the default will be used if omitted #tags: after typing # a list of tags will be displayed then select one or type a new one (multiple tags are supported, type each one after a hash sign) !reminder: after typing an exclamation point a list of reminder suggestions will be displayed then select one or type a custom reminder such as in 4 days or 05/01/2014 or 05/01/2014 at 2:00 Title: at the end, after a colon (or the second colon if you are adding time in your reminder) Note that items of the syntax are optional, however the syntax has to end with a colon, with or without typing the note title e.g. #tag1 : Note Content Source From clipboard From selected text Typed directly in Alfred From Safari or Google Chrome URL From message(s) selected in Mail app From file(s) selected in Finder app: you can create one note with files or one note for each selected files. Alfred File Browser also supported. Type a Note also supports multiple lines and, in this case, the first line will be the title of the note e.g. enn Line 1 /n Line 2 /n Line 3 Actions Return key: create a note Control Key: create a note and open it Command key: append text or file to a note Option key: append text to a note with current date How to Append Highlight one of the note content source e.g. From Clipboard Optionally type tags and a reminder e.g. #tag1 #tag2 !tomorrow hold command key and hit return key select a note from the list (search by title only) and hit return key Mail Message subject as the note title Message received date as the note creation date Message Link as the note source URL A short header (e.g. sender) A plain text version of the email content Note Templates Read about templates here. Preferences Bring Alfred and type the keyword enpref: Search wildcard: you can set the workflow to automatically use the Evernote search wildcard (*) or you can set the workflow to use only if it is typed (the Manual setting may by faster in a huge note collection).

  13. I use Alfred for searching in iTunes Store but I can't find a custom search for Apple Music catalog, any tips?
  14. I've started noticing Alfred not showing some apps in the results recently. Not sure what caused this, never noticed such problems that would not be fixable with `reload` command before. Beside `reload`ing, I've tried rebuilding macOS metadata, but to no avail... Is there anything I can do to pin down the issue / fix it? - Alfred version: 4.3.2 [1221] - macOS Catalina 10.15.7
  15. So I was trying to search for a folder that I use regularly and is in the "Favourites" column of finder (i.e. it's a folder that should definitely be searchable). I know I could click on Finder and click on the folder itself but I was testing it out so I could get an idea. It's an issue because it certainly should be searching for it... is there a reason why it doesn't? Also, I noticed that on clicking "Advanced" (in Alfred 4 Preferences > Features > Essentials), there's a way to change "User-defined file types to show in the default results" but I'm not sure what this means exactly? Especially as when I try to add something, it's just text and not a selection of folders/files. Can someone help me with this? I'm a complete NEWBIE with Alfred and even more so with coding so please bear with me - any advice is really appreciated. Thanks
  16. Hi there, I noticed many of my files weren't coming up in search, and it was bothering me for the longest time. I finally decided to spend some time to troubleshoot and narrow down the issue. I've concluded it has something to do with hyphens. Doesn't seem to happen with periods or underscores. However, most of my file nomenclature across my machine utilizes hyphens in this way. When I'm trying to find a file based on a section of its name, it won't come up in Alfred's search results if that section happens to be sandwiched between two other file name sections. In other words, surrounded by a hyphen on each side. Below are two screenshots that should be able to show what I'm talking about. Each screenshot should show three results. Any idea what might be causing this? Fixing this would be a life saver. Thanks in advance!
  17. Hey all, I have just published the Alfred Confluence workflow. The Alfred Confluence workflow let's you find and open Confluence pages and blog posts from Alfred.

  19. First problem: A only finds 40 files at most in a ("Default") search. This is woefully inadequate. Is there any way to increase this to, say, 1-200? Second problem: There is no way, as far as I can see, to specify categories always included in the search results. That is, I would like to always find multiple file and folders matching the word I put into the search box. This could be done if the category list ("Essentials", "Extras") could be configured by percentage or, more crudely, by number. Specifically, suppose that I have a folder named "Consciousness" buried under several folders, and many pdfs with the term "Consciousness" in their titles. Well, in A as it's now set up, I will only find a max of 40 pdfs with the word "Consciousness" in their titles, and will not find the folder with that name. This does not happen when I use Spotlight; the results there are automatically divided into categories, and the folder will always be found. I don't want to have to configure a workflow to do this; that adds another step, unless that workflow can be included in the default search.
  20. I've having an issue with Alfred 4.2.1 [1887] where I cannot search for content contained within a Markdown file. Here is the breakdown between Spotlight and Alfred. Spotlight Can find .md files by name Can find .md files by content Alfred Can find .md files by name Cannot find .md files by content I ran the "File Search Troubleshooting" tool on the specific markdown file I'm trying to find and it passes with no problems. Any help on this problem is greatly appreciated!
  21. Hello, I've been having this problem lately : Alfred seems to ignore my external drive in its search results,especially folders (files tend to be omitted, but appear sometimes). I'm using this flashdrive constantly and set the search results to 40. It is in the search scope, my macos version is 10.15.7, alfred is 4.2 build 1180. Thank you in advance for your help, Cedric
  22. After exploring @deanishe's great Searchio Workflow, @nikivi's Web Searches Workflow, and asking for tips on how to best share my many Custom Searches, I decided to launch a simple website with a listing of my Custom Searches, along with icons that I'm making for each one. There are 57 searches so far, I have another 33 that I'm working on, and you can also submit your own suggestions! Would love to know if you find this valuable! Visit Alfred Custom Searches
  23. Hi everyone, Let me introduce evernote workflow that I use. I made this workflow for adding some features that I wanted at first, and I share this with you because I think it would be much better to use it together. You can check it on below repository including demo. Repo: https://github.com/jopemachine/alfred-evernote-workflow And as for how to install, please refer the README.md of above repository. Feature * Fast search using * Preview feature using caching. * You can change your search details. Prerequisite * Evernote Client on macOS (None App-store version) * Node JS How to use ### en Switch to Evernote App. ### en > authtoken { Argument } Argument: {`Your api key`} This command is required only for the initial authentication process. This command save the token value obtained from gettoken to a file. ### en > gettoken This command is required only for the initial authentication process. The command opens Chrome to the Evernote site. When you log in to the site and press the authentication button, `oauthToken` is printed in json format. Pass the value as a argument in the authoken command. ### en > help Open Github link to view README.md. ### en > sync Sync Evernote Client. ### en > savecache Alfred-evernote-workflow use html cache to enable note preview feature. This command save html caches of all of notes from your Evernote client. When the command is running, you are not able to run note searches with the `ens` command. In this case, the `ens` command displays the number of notes that are cached to show you progress. If caching is not done properly for some reason, you can use `en > clearcache` and this command to perform initial caching. After initial caching, the cache will be updated automatically. ### en > clearcache Delete all of your html caches. If you delete all the cache and use the `ens`, you are likely to be caught in the sdk's api call limit. ### en > clearlog Clean all command logs ### entodo Search only for notes that have check boxes. ### encl Adds the text from the clipboard to the Evernote as a new note. ### enclo Adds the text from the clipboard to the Evernote as a new note and Open the note. ### enc { Argument } Argument: {`note content`} Create note by text. ### enct Argument: {`note title to create`} Search tag name and create note by the selected tag and note content if you want. ### enu { Argument } Argument: {`url to search with`} If no argument exist, search for all notes with source URL. Search Notes by url. ### ens { Argument } Argument: {`content to search`} Search the Evernote's notes. If no argument exist, search for the most recent notes (may vary depending on options) To change the search option, see the topic *Options.* * #### *Shift key* + <kbd>Enter</kbd> You can invoke the Quicklook by pressing the shift key for the `ens` search results. Quicklook displays the note in html format. * #### *Fn key* + <kbd>Enter</kbd> You can view the source URL for that note by pressing the Fn key for the search results in theens. And you can open the source URL by chrome by entering the item. If the note does not contain a sourceURL, you will receive an error notification. ### enn { Argument } Argument: {`content to search`} Search the Evernote's notes in your Trash bin. Note that the enter action for this command is to open the cache of the note in the Chrome browser. (Not your Evernote client) ### ent { Argument } Argument: {`tag name`} Search Evernote's tag. You can filter notes by entering on that tag. If no argument exist, search for all tags. If you select the tag, the notes with the tag will be searched. You can search these notes just like the `ens` command. * #### *Command key* + <kbd>Enter</kbd> By pressing the command key and pressing the entry, you can open the window for notes with that tag. ### enr { Argument } Argument: {`content to search`} Search only for notes that have reminder. ### enb { Argument } Argument: {`notebook name`} Search notes by Notebook. If you select the notebook, the notes in that notebook will be searched. If no argument exist, search for all notebooks.

  24. Searchio! workflow for Alfred Auto-suggest search results from multiple search engines and languages. There are a few existing workflows that provide auto-suggest results from one or the other search engine, but this includes not only multiple search engines, but also allows you to specify multiple languages/regions for your results. Supports the following search engines/websites: Google Google Images Google Maps YouTube Wikipedia Wiktionary Amazon eBay DuckDuckGo Bing Yahoo! Ask.com Yandex.ru Naver.com Wikia.com Download and installation Download the latest version from the GitHub releases page or Packal. Usage There are several searches pre-configured. Only some have keywords (i.e. can be used as-is): g — Search Google in system (i.e. default) language m — Search Google Maps in system (i.e. default) language gi — Search Google Images in system (i.e. default) language w — Search Wikipedia in system (i.e. default) language wn — Search Wiktionary in system (i.e. default) language a — Search Amazon in system (i.e. default) language. If your system language is English, this will search Amazon.com. Use -l uk in the Script Filter to search Amazon.co.uk or -l ca to search Amazon.ca. yt — Search YouTube in system (i.e. default) language searchio [<query>] — Show settings and list of supported search engines. Currently, the only setting is a toggle to also show the <query> in the results list (default: No). searchiohelp — Open help file in your browser You can add a keyword to (and edit) one of the existing examples or add your own searches. For details on how to do that, see the GitHub page. Licensing, thanks The code in this workflow is released under the MIT Licence. The icons belong to the respective search engines. This workflow uses the Alfred-Workflow library and docopt (both MIT-licensed).
