  1. Calculate Anything is a workflow for Alfred 4, that uses natural language and is able to calculate multiple things like currency, time, vat, percentage, etc. Why? There are several workflows out there but i just needed a workflow that worked naturally for example you can open alfred and type 100 + 9 and alfred will give you a result no need for keywords or hotkeys it just works, i wanted to be able to jus type 100 + 16% or 100 euros to usd or 100km to cm or 100 years to hours and a large etc. and so this workflow was created. Features - Natural language - type 100 euros to dollars or 100 euros in usd or 100€ to $ or 100eur usd or 100 euros a dolares. It does not matter, the same result will be displayed. - Currency - Up to 168 currencies - Units - 100 kilometers to meters or 100km to m or maybe 100km m - Percentages - 100 + 16% | 100 - 16% etc. - PX,Em,Rem,Pt - 12px or 12px to em or 12px pt - Time - time +15 years? now plus 15 hours? or need to convert a timestamp? - VAT - value added tax calculations, we all need this - Translations You can create your own translations to display results in your language - Keywords Extend the natural language in the queries so you can type 100 dolares a pesos and the code will see 100usd to mxn Download Download directly from Github releases page, make sure to download the latest release. Download here Base Configuration There's only one global configuration and is the language, this configuration will be used to display the messages in your own language. View the Translations secction for the available languaes. Configure it with. calculate configure and select Set base language and enter the language for example es_ES For more information about configuration click here Currency You can use natural language or type a few characters and that's all, for example: 100 usd to mxn 100$ in mxn 100€ to $ 100 euros to dollars 100 euros a dolares (you can also write it in your own language) 100eur (If no target the currency will be converted to the base currency that you configured) All this examples will simply work, you can add spaces between the value and the currency or don't. If by any chance you don't remember the currency symbol or abbreviation simply type calculate list and select "List Available Currencies" (view the gift above) Currency Options By default the workflow will use exchangerates api to make the conversion, exchangerates has only support for 32 currencies, if you need support for all the currencies that this worflow includes you need to get a FREE API Key from https://fixer.io it takes less than a minute. The following options are available for the currency. Simply launch Alfred and type calculate configure and select any of the options below. View the configuration section for more info Set base currency This will become your base currency, if you type 100eur it will automatically be converted to mxn, examples of currency (USD, EUR, MXN, CAD, etc) Set currency locale Used to give format to the converted amount using the money format of your contry Set Fixer API Set your fixer API Key for support more currencies Currency Symbols You can also use currency symbols in your query for example 100¥ to € will be converted to 100JPY to EUR, here is a list of available symbols. Please go to the repo description on Github for a full list of supported symbols it's really difficult to write them here in the forum. View Currency Symbols Units You can write your query using natural language or just a few characters, either way this workflow will give you the result you need. 100 ounces to kilograms 100oz to kg 100oz = kg 100oz kg 10 years to months 10years to seconds 1 year to sec 1hr s 10 días a horas (use your own language) If you don't remember the unit abbreviation just simply type the name for example instead of "oz" you can type "ounce" or "ounces" or even use words in your own language for exaple "onza" or "onzas" in spanish. Finally if you still don't remember the unit abbreviation or it's name simply type calculate list and select "List Available Units" you can type to filter, etc. Please go to the repo description on Github for a full list of units it's really difficult to write them here in the forum. View Units Units Options The following options are available. Simply launch Alfred and type calculate configure and select any of the options below. View the configuration section for more info Set System of Measurement Here you can define your System of Measurement, this option is still in development but as the workflow grows this might be necessary for US users, by default the metric system will be used but you can define imperial or metric Percentages You can easily calculate percentages for example: 15% of 50 = 7.50 //7.5 equals to 15% of 50 120 + 30% = 156 //120 plus the 30% of 120 120 plus 30% = 156 //120 plus the 30% of 120 120 - 30% = 84 //120 minus the 30% of 120 120 minus 30% = 84 //120 minus the 30% of 120 30 % 40 = 75% // 30 is 75% of 40. Translations and natural language can also be used 120 más 30% = 156 Time Time is triggered by a keyword because is not often used so you can simply open alfred and type time Gives you the current time time Converts the timestamp to a regular date time 1577836800 Gives you the time from now plus anything you want time +15 days time now plus 3 days Number of days until specified date time days until 31 december The start date of current year time start of year The start date of specified year time start of 2021 The end date of current year time end of year The end date of specified year time end of 2021 It also works in your language time inicio de 2020 time fin de 2020 time dias hasta 31 diciembre Get information about date time 31 December, 2021 18:00:00 time 31/12/2021 18:00:00 time 12/31/2021 18:00:00 Calculate the difference between two dates time 25 December, 2021 - 31 December, 2021 time 31-11-2019 - 21-11-2019 time 11/31/2019 - 11/21/2019 Time Options The following options are available. Simply launch Alfred and type calculate configure and select any of the options below. View the configuration section for more info Set base timezone Base time zone to calculate dates in your time for example (America/Los_Angeles, Mexico/General, etc.) Add date format Configure a new date format so the date is displayed the way you want for example (j F, Y, g:i:s a) Delete date format It will show you a list of configured date formats, simply select the one you want to delete and press enter to remove it Time will use the language that you configure with Set base language VAT (value added tax) With this you can calculate the vat of a given amount. Like time, vat is also triggered with the keyword "vat" you can change the keyword in the workflow. Given the following query vat of 400 (with 16% vat configured, you can configure your own percentage) You will get VAT of 400 = 64 // VAT Amount 400 plus VAT = 464 // Amount plus vat 400 minus VAT = 344.82 // Amount minus vat VAT Options The following options are available. Simply launch Alfred and type calculate configure and select any of the options below. View the configuration section for more info Set VAT percentage for example (16%) Configuration You can easily configure the workflow simply by opening Alfred and typing calculate configure you will see a list of all the available options to configure the workflow, select the option you want and press enter then simply enter your value and again press enter to save it. Check the following gif if you have doubts. Translations Please check the available languages on Github, it's easier to update the information there and also how you can create a translation. Keywords Keywords are words that can be used when writing a query in natural language for example a keyword "ounces" will be converted to "oz", "kilometers" will be converted to "km" or "dollars" will be converted to "USD", "seconds" will become "s" and a large etc. This keywords allows the user to type in a more natural way and in their own language. You can write your own keywords to extend the functionality, please check the information on Github. Stop Words Stop words are words that can be used in the query when using natural language for example "100km to cm" - here the stop word is "to" Stop words are useful for two things: Allows the user to write more naturally and in their own language (e.g 100 dolares a mxn) "a" is the stop word Are used to check if the query has to be processed for example: 100km equals meters if the word "equals" is not registered in the stop_words array then it won't be processed. At the end this stop words are removed so 100km to cm becomes 100km cm. Please take a look at the readme on Github to learn more about this. For Currency, Percentages and Units this workflow will only process the query if it begins with a digit and it has at least 3 characters. Time and VAT have a keyword because those are not often used. Updates Updates are installed automatically when a new version is released you don't have to do anything but if want you can check for new updates manually just launch Alfred and type calculate update the workflow will check for updates and it will let you now if there are any updates available. Lastly This is the first workflow that I create I just had 3 days to do it and 1 was for finding, naming flags, creating translations, creating the readme and this post. If you find a bug or you think this workflow can be improved please let me know or if I created/configured/exported the workflow incorrectly please let me know and I'll fix it. I just purchased Alfred Powerpack and had a great time creating this workflow and I hope that someone finds it useful apart from my lovely wife.
  2. Here's another little tool I've just whipped up: Get an instant list of the current time in various cities around the world. Which you can customize, of course. Main keyword: tz (for TimeZones) - this just shows the World Clock list (seen above). (Select a city for a Large Type display.) To remove a city from the list - option-select it. To add a new city - timezone add Name of City To update all cities' timezone offset information - timezone update To look up the time in a place without storing it (custom loookup), just keep typing the place name after the initial tz (eg. tz timbuktu) To move the location of your stored city list - timezone move Download v1.7a This workflow saves a list of your cities and their UTC offsets locally, so the basic world clock will display instantly. Adding new city information is done via an API call to Google Wolfram Alpha. The only downside to locally cached offsets is that there's no provision for automatically updating for Daylight Savings changes, but a manual timezone update will refresh all the cities with their current offset. Enjoy. As usual, I welcome comments, bug reports, feature requests, etc. ---- 28 March 2013 - UPDATE to v1.5 Major rewrite - now uses Google Maps APIs, which should be a lot more reliable and consistent. Flag icons! Bit of eye candy, courtesy of http://www.free-country-flags.com (and managed to squeeze flags for every country in the world into just over 400k - thank you TinyPNG ) More detail retrieved and displayed, including timezone name, country, etc. When doing a full "update", a text file is saved to your Desktop summarising any changes found. General enhancement and tweaks. PLEASE NOTE: Because this version stores its data substantially different to previous versions, it will create a new timezones.txt file with default cities. However, it will attempt to save your old timezones.txt file to your Desktop, so you should be able to rebuild your previous list without too much hassle. A quick note about the flags: The workflow simply compares the retrieved name of the country and does a simple name match against the workflow's local repository of flag icons. From my testing, it's working very well, but I'd appreciate it if you'd report back if you find any countries that don't properly match a flag icon. Cheers. ---- 31 March 2013 - UPDATE to v1.6 New feature: Custom lookups. Just keep typing a new place name after the tz keyword to look up the time in a place without saving it to your saved list. Added support for phyllisstein's Alleyoop auto-updater. [EXPERIMENTAL] - support for autocomplete for adding place names (timezone add). You'll need to add a keyword yourself to the script filter if you want to try it out. The reason I haven't enabled it by default is that I've found it kind of slow and I'm not sure it's actually an improvement over the current method. Let me know what you think. [Add a keyword to this script filter if you'd like to try it out] Novelty: Added (unofficial) Antarctica flag to flag repository. (Try tz south pole. ) ---- 2 April 2013 — UPDATE to v1.61 Small fix for Dutch (Netherlands) flag matching. ---- 22 March 2014 — UPDATE to v1.7 City List now always shows in the same order. (Achieved by removing “uid” parameter.) Removed Alleyoop updater. ---- 22 March 2014 — UPDATE to v1.7a New 256x256px icon
  3. I've rewritten my Alfred-Time workflow so that it's more easily extensible, and better tested. Currently it works with the Toggl and Harvest services. You can start, stop, or continue a timer, choose a project and a tag if necessary. With version 2.0 it's one service or the other though. The previous version allowed to use both services at the same time. I personally don't use that anymore, and it was a pain to maintain. If you still need that functionality, you can still use the previous version. I'm planning to add new services. It's very basic (even more basic than the previous version). Just start, stop or continue. No more delete, no more cache bullshit. There's some ideas in the queue like enable/disable tags (or choose a default one), but nothing done yet. I use the workflow daily and it works fine (for me). If it does help you, enjoy! GitHub: https://github.com/godbout/alfred-time/releases Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/alfred-time-v2
  4. Hi forum. I recently purchased the Alfred PowerPack and am looking forward to leveraging its power. I've added a few custom workflows that are triggered by hotkeys which run some NSAppleScripts. I'd like to do the same for a few more, but triggered automatically at a specific time each week (e.g. "every Friday @ 6pm"). I don't see a workflow object that is triggered by date or time. Is this possible in Alfred?
  5. Here's a workflow that's useful for developers; it allows you to convert between timestamps and formatted datetime strings with ease. Simply type "df" followed by: "now", a UTC unix timestamp, or a formatted datetime string. This will present you with the parsed date in various formats ready to copy to your clipboard. Download
  6. I just added workflow snippets to my Time Stamp Workflow and noticed that I had never shared it. So, here it is. You can use "ts:stamp" to list the pre-defined date/time stamp format and paste the current date/time into the top application. Or, you can use the "ts:build" to build your own date/time stamp to add to the list. I also have several predefined snippets: ;tsl = the current date/time using the last select date/time stamp. ;ed = the current date/time in the mm/dd/yyyy format. ;dow = the current day of the week. ;nsu - the next Sunday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nmo - the next Monday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;ntu - the next Tuesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nwe - the next Wednesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nth - the next Thursday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nfr - the next Friday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nsa - the next Saturday date using the last select date/time stamp.

  7. Hey ya'll, This may be a silly ask but I'm new to Alfred so I figured I'd start here! Can anyone tell me how to calculate a new date ie 16 days from today's date? I tried using a snippet that looked similar to this: {date}+16 and it doesn't seem to work out. Any tips? Thanks!
  8. This is pretty self-explanatory. My suggestion is that a new trigger object is added for workflows which triggers at the specified time, perhaps with a day/date component as well, and passes the date through to the workflow.
  9. Hi guys, the new snippets auto expansion is nice. Thanks for such a great update! Anyway is it possible to set different format for {date} and {time} ?
  10. G'day folks! I've recently dug into writing a workflow for Alfred which purpose is to control Hyperion (a service which supplies LED stripes with data). However, when I'm trying to ssh into the remote machine to fetch a list of all available colors (148 ones), it apparently takes too long. Now, I've read on the forum that Alfred has no such thing as timeout. But in that case, I would love if someone could explain why I can fetch the list of effects, where there are only 14 lines and not the list of colors (148). Is there anything I can do? Oh, and yeah: I've seen the setting "terminate script on subsequent input setting", but I cannot find it no more. I thought I could test without that setting, but I don't seem to find it anymore. Edit: found the setting. Whatever setting I had didn't matter. If I run the script in the terminal, the file with the list creates just fine. It's only an issue when using Alfred. Thankful for answers.
  11. I currently use Mac's Parental Controls feature to limit the amount of time my child can spend on the family iMac on a given day. For instance, once he's done with homework and chores, he's allowed to login and use up his weekday allotment. Sometimes I want to grant him extra time as a reward for something, yet the iMac is often a good distance from where I situated in the house. I'm looking for a way to "extend" my child's time using an iPhone app for remote control so that I don't need to go to the Mac and type in my admin username and pw. Ideally I would also be able to just lock/unlock his iMac screen using my iPhone from anywhere (over internet) at any time. Will Alfred work for this? Any other suggestions? I've been web searching like crazy, reading about different software offerings, and cannot seem to come up with anything like this. One would think Apple would supply native remote control capabilities across its product line-up. Thanks in advance!
  12. Hello. I've been looking for a workflow that changes the system date, but couldn't find one. Does anyone know of one or how to make it? Thank you and take care,
  13. What? Synopsis: If you are regularly attending meetings where people from different countries need to join and you need a quick and easy way to check a future date in all the time zones, wouldn't you love just saying "April 17 10am london to paris,germany,india" And boom. You would know what date and time April 17 10am is in paris, germany and india? Every timezone calculator I've used so far either have clunky drop down menus or, like google time search, only works with current dates, not future dates. Not very helpful. Read on. This workflow does just that. Features: 1) enter your own shortcuts for long timezones (there is a convenience code mapping in a file you can extend) 2) enter full timezones 3) enter cities,countries not part of above and it will use Google to convert it to a timezone (best guess) 4) allows you to enter many destinations at once (tzc 10am md to paris,london,czech,algeria) Download Download link Current version of workflow 1.4 Changelog May 5 2013: Released v1.4 - fixed bugs. Removed dependency on DateTime - easier to install for non dev. users. No xcode etc. needed. The workflow should work without any additional installation steps (or so I hope) May 4 2013: Released v1.3 -added Google api integration, added explicit instructions on install pre-requisites April 18 2013: Original version Keyword tzc How This is an easy to use time zone converter with multiple tz support. Specifically, I often have 'meeting scheduling requirements' with customers from all around the world. So someone asks me 'hey are you ok with a meeting on April 17th at 10am london time?' and then given that I want to make sure that time is ok with me as well as my team members who are in different countries, I need to quickly calculate what that means in different timezones. tzc to the rescue Most available calculators are cumbersome, or, don't handle multiple zones, etc. so I wrote my own All you need to do for the above is, in alfred type "tzc April 17 10am london to paris,germany,india" and boom - you will have what this means to folks in paris, germany and india. Alternately, you can just say "tzc 10am london to paris, germany, india" to skip date. Many other options - see help file in the worflow Here you are converting 10AM maryland to paris and bogotia. Note the different icon for Bogota. This means, bogota was not recognized and it did a google API matching to resolve the timezone Here is an example of a future date + time conversion Note that this workflow requires some perl modules to be installed, so if it does not find them, it will tell you. See below for installation instructions Also, in that workflow folder, there is a file called mycities.inc - you can assign shortnames to timezones so you don't have to remember long timezone names (london,paris,germany examples are all shortnames defined in mycities.inc - extend it to add your own). To edit the shortnames "tzc edit" To get help, "tzc help" Troubleshooting (if things don't work) This workflow needs two perl modules to be installed. They are Date::Parse & LWP::UserAgent. You *should* already have them installed but if the workflow is telling you one of these modules are missing, read on: Step 1: Launch a terminal Step 2: Check if you have both Date::Parse and LWP::UserAgent installed In the terminal, type and then If either of them generate an error, you need to follow the next steps. If neither of the above produce any output, you have them installed already. Enjoy the workflow - you don't need to follow the rest of the steps. Step 3: Type in It may ask you lots of questions, just go with defaults/yes. Get to a point where you get a cpan> prompt Then type, one by one To make sure, exit cpan, launch a terminal and repeat step 2 to make sure these don't print any errors. If none of these result in an error, you are all set. Comments, feedback welcome. Its possible I am not leveraging some cool things in Alfred - feel free to point them out to me as well.
  14. Hi, With the recent comments about wanting to add up several time values using the calcutor, I decided to cleanup and give out this handy workflow. I am often needing to add up a series to times in a document. This workflow makes it very easy. Clear the accumulator, select a time value, and hit your hotkey combination you assigned in this workflow. The time will be accumulated. You can show the time in Hr:min:sec format or just plain minutes. Have fun! ta:clear This clears the accumulator ta:showmin Show the accumulated time in just minutes. ta:showhr Show the accumulated time There is a hotkey you need to set for adding the currently selected time. GitHub: https://github.com/raguay/MyAlfred/blob/master/TimeAddingWorkflow.alfredworkflow Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/time-adding-workflow
  15. This workflow extends Alfred's built-in calculator function. It recognizes durations as input and allows them to be added / subtracted. For example, if you type "8:00:18 - 4:19:23" into Alfred, you'll get "3:40:55". You may add or subtract as many durations as you like (e.g. "3:32:55 - 5:57 + 4:50:14"). Download Preview:
  16. I often end up in a situation when my entire screen is covered with windows and the tiny analog clock on the menu bar is just too hard to decipher. Plus, I guess it's safe to say that all of us hate using the mouse or the trackpad on those over-work days (hence Alfred! ).So I decided to make a most basic workflow using the "date" command of the Terminal. There are two keywords: 'date' and 'time'. On actioning these keywords, the current date and time (respectively) are displayed on the screen using the "Large Type" output mode. That's it! (oh, one more thing - I use the word "Clock" for the search result to avoid conflict with "Date & Time" of "System Preferences") Here are a few screenshots: date keyword date output time keyword time output NOTE: Although it is not apparent from the screenshots, the large type output is actually transparentso it does not really cover your screen with a completely opaque black panel! And a press of the Esc key is all that's required to get it out of sight. You can download the workflow from here: https://github.com/bedartha/DateTime I hope you guys like it. - Bedartha
  17. I created a workflow to display the current date and time in a configurable format. Pressing enter will copy to clipboard. You can also add and subtract time. Examples: date 3w: today + 3 weeks date -2y: today - 2 years date 2m -5d: today + 2 months - 5 days View GitHub for more details. Direct Download.
  18. alfreTS This is a time stamp workflow for the Alfred Application. Download the current package via dropbox. Open the alfred window then type now. The results show the current timestamp in different formats. Select a timestamp format to copy the shown timestamp to the clipboard. Paste it into any editor you like. You can define your own formats via the python strftime syntax. It is also possible to define your preferred locale setting to acquire the weekday and month names in your local language. In order to edit these settings you need to enter the settings into the script of the Script Filter inside the workflow. This can be done by editing the #commented lines. (In case you did not know how #comments work: lines with # in front will be ignored by the python interpreter and not be executed.) Please visit the projects github repository. If you are using this workflow and you happen to make a new format for timestamps please share it here. Thankyou! <( )> hug me <(^.^ )> PS: somehow I cannot add screenshots here. It says I am not allowed to link *.png files (T_T)" If you would like to see some screenshots please visit the github repository. The README.md contains two screenshots. update: new version online =) alfreTS_v0.0.201402142154.alfredworkflow Question to all users: Would you like to have an interface via the Alfred input window to edit your locale and your formats?
  19. I created a simple workflow to copy the current timestamp (In seconds or milliseconds) to clipboard. Useful as a developer! http://cl.ly/001g0F3K0e2R Usage timestamp - Copies current time in seconds to clipboard timestampm - Copies current time in milliseconds to clipboard timestamp <timestamp> - Converts timestamp to readable date Feedback Let me know if theres any problems or feature requests! Cheers.
  20. Anyone have a way to pull up the time in different countries? A conversion app that could do postal codes etc. would be SWEET!
