  1. Hi everyone Im a new memeber of Alfred, and felt in love with the possiblities of alfred workflows. I belive i have a quiet cool idea, that could benefit alot of users, but i dont have the skills to pull it off. That is why i hope anyone in here could pull it off and share with the community . The idea is that the user would be able to choose at downloadfolder based on the URL they user are downloading from. For an example, i have made folder named "Facebook Downloads" and "Alfred Downloads"on my Mac. Whenever i then download a file from the www.facebook.com/* website, the downloaded folder would automatically get placed in the "Facebook Downloads" folder. If i then download a file from fx www.alfredforum.com/* the file would be placed in the "Alfred Downloads" folder. An extra feature that would be nice, if the downloadfolder also could be determiend by the URL sub root. For an example, downloads from www.facebook.com/alfred/ and www.facebook.com/mike/ would be downloaded into 2 seperate folders. It doesnt matter if the downloaded itme are directly rooted to the preffered folder, or if it would be redirected from the stardard download folder to the preferred folder. Though the first soulution would be the best, but most certainly also the hardest to do. When an item is downloaded on the mac from a website, the itme automatically coantain information about its origin (URL), if you enter the itmes "Get info". I belive this could be used to setup this workflow easier, but i have no idea. Maybe its more suited to be build in the "automator" app, build into macOS..? again i have no idea Looking forward to hear your reaction on this, and if anyone are able or will try to create this.
  2. This workflow is set to open Gmail by default, but can be easily configured to open any webpage by changing the URL in the Apple Script within the workflow. Configuring the workflow in this way requires almost zero programming knowledge--you just go into the Apple script of the workflow and replace the Gmail URL with whatever URL you want the workflow to open. You can also, of course, customise the keyword to match whatever URL it is you want to open. To use this workflow out of the box, type "gm" into Alfred and Gmail will open in a new Safari window. This workflow can be adapted to open any page in Safari; all you have to do is change the link in the Apple Script. The Github page for this workflow can be found here, and you can download it directly by clicking this link. The Apple Script used can also be found in the Github repository. This workflow was made for Mac OS using an Apple Script.
  3. Shorten URL (v1.1) - download here Github Page: https://github.com/hzlzh/Alfred-Workflows This workflow support URL shortener like below. You can use Hotkey to trigger without open Alfred input window. goo.gl/ bit.ly/ t.cn/ j.mp/ is.gd/ v.gd/ If you want more URL shortener services added, please let me know, . How-To: Choose some long links (e.g Command + A), then press `Command + Shift +L`, choose goo.gl and you will get the short link in your clipboard with notification center triggered. Tips: How to use this workflow without copy/paste? Just use trigger HotKey, check out this wiki issue here: https://github.com/h...kflows/issues/1 Screenshot:

  5. Good morning all, I am trying to search against some multiple queries in a ServiceNow table. Essentially, what I want the workflow to do is be able to add in a new field + operator + term with each query I enter, that way I don't have to hard-code a certain count of queries. To break it down, my initial search, with one query, would look like this as a URL: https://support.servicenow.com/sn_customerservice_case_list.do?sysparm_query=close_notesLIKEQuery1 Or, if I wanted to add two terms, it would append this to the URL: ^close_notesLIKEQuery2 The full URL would look like: https://support.servicenow.com/sn_customerservice_case_list.do?sysparm_query=close_notesLIKEQuery1^close_notesLIKEQuery2 Regarding entering the queries into the Alfred searchbar, I'd like to have some keyword, like 'eespc' (erik e, search past cases) and then add in the queried terms, separated by commas, where each added comma + term would append a new ^close_notesLIKEQuery2, ^close_notesLIKEQuery3, ^close_notesLIKEQuery4, etc. to the URL. So, I could press CMD + Spacebar and do 'eespc Query1, Query2, Query3', and each queried term would show up in it's own appended '^close_notesLIKEQuery' URL piece. Can someone please help me to do this? I'm very new to using Workflows in Alfred, but I know this would be SO helpful to have for daily productivity, etc. Thank you all so very much!!
  6. Hey guys, quick question. Is there any easy way to use an image from a URL as the icon for a script filter? I've been downloading about 50 compressed thumbnails everytime I use a script I've been writing. (extremely slow) Do you guys know of any easier way to get images from a URL as a script filter icon? Thanks
  7. Hello. I'm trying to open Zoom meeting URL that is in my iCalendar using 'Run Script' in Workflow. I am using ical-buddy for the purpose. I wrote the code below to select my "School" calendar, get some URL in it (which is either Zoom or Discord in my case so apologies for a lazy regex), and open it with Chrome. url=$(icalbuddy -ic 'School' eventsToday | egrep -o 'https:\/\/.*') && open -a "Google Chrome" $url If I paste this straight to terminal, it works perfectly. However, once I put this in 'Run Script' object in the Workflow that I am working on, it would not open the desired link. If I hard-code URL like below, it would open the link, so I suppose it is the problem with ical-buddy and grepping the link. url='https://www.google.com' && open -a "Google Chrome" $url I would really appreciate any insight. Thank you. P.S. I have /bin/zsh as Language
  8. As I balance all sorts of projects in different fields, I create workspaces for myself using Alfred Workflows (keyword for the project opens all Apps, Websites, Finder Folders, scripts, etc. required for project). Often, there are many web pages and I creating URL actions for each is tedious. I would really love a "Open Multiple URLs" Action where I can paste in a bunch of URLs, separated by line breaks, and the action will open all of them upon trigger. Thanks for the excellent product!
  9. Hello, I post on different forums including Scrivener, Reddit, keyboard maestro, Alfred. I want to create a workflow which would allow me to trigger alfred → type f followed by space → I type in a few letters of forum name (like scr for Scrivener) → URL opens in browser. I would be grateful if someone could put me on the right track to create such a workflow thanks in advance for your time and help
  10. I removed Flash from my system long ago but occasionally I need to make use of the version bundled with Chrome to view certain web pages properly. There are a few workflows like this around, but as the only browsers I use are Safari and Chrome I wanted something a little more direct than Send URL which led me to this alternative made by Runar. There were a few issues with that workflow, so I made a version which (hopefully) deals with everything in a tidy and intelligent manner. If Safari is either not open, or has no windows open, the workflow will post a notification saying so. If you'd like it to also post notifications when URLs are successfully sent to Chrome open the workflow folder (right click the workflow in Alfred and click Show in Finder) and edit the appropriate line in open_in_chrome.scpt (it's clearly marked). The reverse behaviour is also available (i.e.: sending URLs from Chrome to Safari). Hat tip to Carlos-Sz for getting Alfred to run the Applescript properly 🙂 Download (v1.0.2): Open in Chrome GitHub Keywords: openinchrome, openinsafari
  11. I have a simple question. I want to send a URL to a browser. Or a string to an already active input box in an application. How do i do this? The only thing i can find is Key Combo which sends only one key. I want to send a string. Ah, and the Open URL doesn't work for me because i want to send the URL to an already open browser. It seems such a simple operation, but i cannot figure out how to do it.
  12. This may not be a bug, but it's worth noting: When you use open location to open a URL from inside an NSAppleScript action, it must be in the tell application "System Events" context, otherwise it will fail silently (as of Alfred 2.0.3 on OS X 10.8.3). For instance, to open URL "http://boston.com", you need to use the following: tell application "System Events" to open location "http://boston.com" # fails without `tell application "System Events" to` Note: If an action's sole purpose is to open a URL with the default handler, it is better to use the dedicated Open URL action type instead, which avoids this problem.
  13. I created a small Workflow which removes SEO and other unneeded parts from URLs to make them shorter, reason for this were those long Amazon product page URLs that can be shortened to only contain the actual Amazon product ID in the URL. If I collect or share those URLs I usually shortened by hand them to not clutter chat logs etc. I never wanted to rely on URL shortener like bit.ly etc. to not get lost when those services shut down. So this workflow checks your clipboard and tries to shorten the URL to it's bare working minimum for the service. Currently supported are Amazon, Heise and Reddit, YouTube with their respective URL shorteners. I'm not sure if this is particular useful to someone else, nevertheless here it is. https://github.com/stroebjo/alfred-cleanurls/releases
  14. Hi everyone. I have a collection of custom web searches that I would like to execute using a hyperlink. This way I have a clickable solution to run it when presented with a reminder or am reviewing my notes. I could create a workflow with an external trigger, but it feels like a lot of added overhead to build and maintain for a simple mechanism. Is there a mechanism to trigger a specific Alfred custom web search via a hyperlink? e.g. "alfred://websearch (You need to check this today)"
  15. Hey everyone, I'm running on High Sierra and for some reason can't get even the simplest of workflows in Alfred to work with Google Chrome. For example, the workflow in the attached screen shot works when the browser is changed to Safari, but when I try to open it in a Chrome browser, all it does is open a new Chrome window with a blank URL. Any idea what's going on / how to fix it? This is such a core tenet of how I want to use Alfred workflows - I really hope we can figure this out! Cheers, Palmira
  16. A simple Workflow created after the very often used Workflow by Kopepasah no longer seemed to work (not sure if a Google thing or a Alfred 3 thing) The speed in which it returns the short URL is very fast, especially compared to my experiences with the previous PHP iteration. I was messing with making the user having to register their own api with Google before use. But figured this was too complicated for non developers so it currently uses what Google call a public server API created by myself which allows for 1,000,000 a day (which should be fine). http://www.packal.org/workflow/google-url-shortner
  17. Does anybody know how to set up the Web Search feature in Alfred to work with SSRN (Social Science Research Network)? For those unfamiliar with SSRN, it's website for sharing research (usually early drafts and things in the public domain). Unfortunately, while it's now owned by Elsevier, it's still probably the most used repository for pre-publication research papers. When I run search either through its standard or advanced search pages, the search terms are not located in the URL. Unlike Google and other search-related websites, I also can't seem to find any documentation on its search API, etc. For example, when I search for the terms "test search" using the advanced search, the search results are communicated through the following URL: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/results.cfm?RequestTimeout=50000000 Given these constraints, does anybody have any ideas for how to set up Alfred's Web Search feature with SSRN? Thanks in advance!
  18. This seems like it's simple, but I don't find anything about how to create a clickable link that will trigger a workflow. We have several workflows we'd like to trigger externally by clicking a link we've placed in another application. is that possible?
  19. Hi! I felt a little hesitate to start my first topic, because I think my question is quite simple but I couldn't find the answer yet in the forums. But since this is the reason I started using Alfred, I might just ask the community On my Mac, I use different email applications and browsers to seperate work and private. I use Outlook and Firefox for work and Airmail and Chrome for my private stuff. Now, Chrome is my default browser. What I want to achieve is that all links that I click on in Outlook are opened in Firefox. Is this possible? Thanks for helping out! Cheers, Daniel
  20. I almost didn't post this as a bug, because I'll leave it to Alfred's parents to decide. It's quite possible a "behavior subtlety" which has "evolved." But on the chance it was an unintended change: Build 875, Monday 25th September 2017, although this seems to have been a behavior since the new bookmark search behavior instead of something peculiar to this build. I'm still holding off on installing High Sierra until we get the all-clear with Adobe Illustrator and a few production tools. So this is in the current Sierra. For a long time I've organized browser bookmarks using full names and unique abbreviations in parentheses, e.g. National Hurricane Center (NHC) Storm Prediction Center (SPC) National Weather Service (NWS) Then I would recall such things using the abbreviation. "<Search box> NHC " or "<Search box> SPC" In earlier versions, the search would return links including the above examples. In the current version, the pattern does not return as a match unless I also type the first parenthesis. Now required: "<Search box> (NHC" or "<Search box> (SPC" I don't know that I have any objection to this, but I mention it in case it was unintended. Or perhaps the unlikely case where it has changed the way a script behaves. I certainly don't mind changing my scheme if the new behavior is preferred. :-) Thanks very much for the ongoing improvements and support of Alfred!
  21. Hello everyone! I have link https://www.shutterstock.com/search?searchterm=test&sort=popular&image_type=all&search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&page=1 The question is, how can I go to the page=2 https://www.shutterstock.com/search?searchterm=test&sort=popular&image_type=all&search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&page=2, and page 2+1=3, https://www.shutterstock.com/search?searchterm=test&sort=popular&image_type=all&search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&page=3, and page 3+1=4, https://www.shutterstock.com/search?searchterm=test&sort=popular&image_type=all&search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&page=4, and page 4+1=5 ... , etc ... on the same tab on Safari, with shortcut? It will save a lot of time. Thank you for any help!
  22. The workflow takes the url of the active safari tab, and copies it to the clipboard. If you want it also throws the the page title in there. If you have selected some text, it tries to recognize that and takes that instead of the page title. It also can directly paste that whole string. That's it. Tremendously helpful for IM conversations or as a starting point for a Tweet. I have bound it like this CMD Option U to copy URL CMD Option Shift U to paste URL CMD Option K to copy Page Title and URL CMD Option Shift K to paste Page Title/Selected Text and URL Originally created by Michael Matochkin, I adapted the workflow over time and now publish it here. Original credits in the readme: Based on Alfred extensions by Luca Soldaini (original applescript by Dr. Drang) and Zibity I've used an icon from the Stylistica Icon Set That should cover it. And of course: here is the UPDATED workflow download link (see my latest comment for more info) Cheers! Timm
  23. Good evening everybody, I am looking for directions (a) to find an already existing workflow (that I wasn't able to find) or (b) to allow me to create my own, in regards to the following "problem": I use Safari as my primary and have Opera installed as my secondary browser. While viewing a website in Safari, I sometimes would like to be able to use an Alfred-keyword to open the same website in Opera and vice-versa. Any directions? Thank you!
  24. Three or four times a week I run afoul of Alfred's URL search by typing something like: ag.vim install.py config.sh CSV::Converter etc. etc. Alfred thinks these are all URLs and tries to open them. Could we use a better regex to separate genuine from spurious URLs?
  25. How do people handle frequently-used URLs in Alfred? I handle these in two ways: 1. Use a workflow that reads from your browser favorites. 2. Define a custom search for the URL (with our without parameters) so I can just open it with a keyword. Option 1 works but I don't like having to remember to type the workflow keyword first. Instead I end up doing Option 2 for my most commonly used urls so I can open them quickly, but it's annoying to have to define each one individually. If I type a URL in Alfred, then it will remember next time I start typing the same URL and suggest it. But often I type the URL directly in the browser, and then Alfred doesn't have access to it. Ideally I could give Alfred access to my browser's history folder and let it intelligently compile a list of sites I actually visit. Anyway, how do most people do this?
