  1. Hello everyone! I wanted to attempt to create a workflow that does the following: Open a specific Google Chrome profile, wether or not google chrome is already open or not. I have tried this just in a bash script and never got the results I wanted..... This is what I was working off of: open -a Google\ Chrome --args --"profile-directory"="Profile 1 also tried /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --args --profile-directory=Default This is where i posted my original question: http://superuser.com/questions/759535/open-google-chrome-specific-profile-from-command-line-mac/759644#759644 So has anyone done this before, or have any ideas on how to create this into an alfred workflow? Thank you!
  2. ALFRED TODOIST WORKFLOW Add and search Todoist tasks straight from Alfred. It uses Todoist v8 REST API. Getting started For this workflow to work you need version 3.x of Alfred and a powerpack licence. Node.js Installation Download and import workflow. Configuration Name Notation Explanation token ^[0-9a-fA-F]{40}$ (default empty) The todoist API token. language en, da, pl, zh, ko, de, pt, ja, it, fr, sv, ru, es, nl(default en) The language for natural language date processing (by todoist) and to calculate time to complete a task. cache_timeout A positive number (default 3600, an hour) The time (in seconds) until the cache is refreshed (until that time todoist information is stored locally to make things a little faster) anonymous_statistics true or false (default true) Doesn't do much at the moment but I intent to use it to track installs todo:setting token {api token} Example: todo:setting token 2d2e2a334c5f36e7a7c43b46e todo:setting language {language} Example: todo:setting language nl todo:setting cache_timeout {time in seconds} Example: todo:setting cache_timeout 13 todo:setting anonymous_statistics {true or false} Example: todo:setting anonymous_statistics false Usage Name Notation Explanation task Any text except , The task title. date A date string See the Todoist documentation for supported date formats. project Either #personal or #[next actions] Use either the hashtag notation or bracket notation if the project name has spaces in it. The project name is case insensitive. label @label Label names can't contain any whitespace characters. Labels are case insensitive. priority Either p2 or !!2 A value between 1 (urgent) and 4 (normal) Search for tasks todos {query} Query Any search query one character or longer. Uses fuzzy search to find the tasks. Example: todos car => returns (because of fuzzy search): Rent car New cat recipe's Cut Gras tomorrow Create task todo {task}, {date} Example: todo Get things done, tomorrow @ 9 Example: todo Build tree house #home !!2 @15min, tomorrow @ 9 Changelog View CHANGELOG.md Contributing Instructions - Fork and clone the repo - Install dependacies - Symlink to project workflow folder git clone https://github.com/YOUR-USERNAME/alfred-worflow-todoist npm install npm run setup:dev Build Create a new build with npm run build Run tests Run Jest test suite with: npm run test npm run test:prod Or run a watcher with npm run test:watch Commits For commits I follow the angular commit guidelines and use semantic release to automate builds, semver version updates and changelog creation. The way to make sure this all works is to run: npm run commit Which guides you through the motions Code of conduct code-of-conduct.md License License MIT © Martien Oranje
  3. I create a workflow for searching mail from Outlook for Mac V16 (A.K.A. 2016). Now it support searching Mail sender, Subject and Preview Content with below format: olk [keyword] And also you can search with multiple keywords: olk [keyword1] [keyword2] [keyword3] To limit search scope in one attribute: olk from:[keyword] olk title:[keywords1] [keywords2] ... By default, this workflow searches mail from all folders and with default page size 20, for results more than 20, you can click last item 'Next 20 Results...' to go to next page. You can also configure the search: olkc pagesize [number] for change search result in one result list. olkc folder then you can get a list of all your Outlook folders, choose one to limit search scope.

  4. Thank you guys! With the great Alfred 3, I can open webpage, mailbox, search internet and do translate work in a smooth and quick way. Here is one function I would like to request - I only use Easyfind to search files on my mac. It would be very helpful if I type some words in Alfred and then showed a shortcut in fallback results which reads "Search on Easyfind". When clicked, it will run Easyfind and do search the search work. Sorry that I know only little about Workflow, but is there any possibility that it could be done with Alfred?
  5. What is the easiest way to access several clipboards items {clipboard:0..n}, then pass to python code that transforms these (uses a template) and pastes the result to an app, then hit tab and paste even more text to an active app? Any workflow I can look at to copy? I am stuck:
  6. iMessage Workflow V3 My workflow has been easily surpassed by others, please use theirs ---------> http://www.alfredfor...red/?hl=unicall However, I'm updating this workflow to Alfred 3 for posterity's sake. Sorry for taking so long guys... Archive Change log: 2/12/2017 - Because of a specific error, I've updated this app. Alongside the minor bug, thanks to Amos Manneschmidt's workflow "Call or SMS contact", I learned how to use OSX's built in Contact app to feed out contacts. Furthermore, I updated this app to be compatible with Alfred 3. 4/30/13 - Non-Latin languages are now supported! I have verified Korean, Chinese, and Japanese. If it works for your language, please tell me! 11/27/13 - My extension prioritizes numbers that have been used before. This should allow Alfred to choose the correct number associated with a contact MUCH more accurately. Works only with phone numbers, not email addresses; A notification is now displayed when contacts are not updated successfully (mostly a response to Exceptions thrown when trying to update) 11/21/13 - Emoticons should now work; Alfred now opens up iMessage if its closed ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ If using the OLD way: Setup: Run command 'IMU' before you start using the workflow Find Contacts and Send Messages: Keyword: "im" 1b. Send a message to the aforementioned contact 2. Reply to most recent iMessage or Group Message (Thanks to David Ferguson's Workflow) Keyword: ".."

  7. Keep a list of audiovisual content to watch and listen to. We often have series of videos and streams that we’d like to watch but not necessarily keep after, but tracking which we’ve already seen (and are thus safe to delete) can be a chore. Select in the Finder the files or directories you wish to add to your list and apply the file action Add to watchlist. If the move_on_add Workflow Environment Variable is set, the items will be moved to that directory (relative to your home). Items will be prepended or appended to the list, depending on the add_item_order Workflow Environment Variable. Alternatively, call swl to add the URL in your clipboard as a stream (add ⌘ for the full playlist). You then have some options you can pick from, all starting with wl. wlp shows the list of items you can play. A reference to each subtitle section can be found at the end. wls calls wlp under the hood, but lets you first select a sort order. In both cases, ↵ plays the selection. Add ⌘ to play without marking as watched or ⌥ to rescan a directory (useful if you made manual changes to it). If the top_on_play Workflow Environment Variable is set to true, the item will be moved to the top of the list before starting playback. Items starting with ≈ are streams. They show no file size (since they aren’t taking up any space locally) and present the link they were taken from as opposed to a location on disk. To play a stream you need mpv, IINA, or VLC. An item will never be marked as watched if we can access the player’s CLI and it exits with a failure exit code. wlu shows the list of watched items. The limit of recent items in this list is controlled by the maximum_watched Workflow Environment Variable. Action an item to mark it as unwatched. Note that in the case of files it does not recover them from the trash, as there is no reliable way to do so on macOS — that step you need to do yourself. If the item has a URL origin (you’ll see it in the subtitle) add ⌘ to open the URL in your default browser or ⌥ to copy it to the clipboard. wle allows you to reorder, rename, and remove items from the list. If you want to keep your lists synced between machines, use the lists_dir Workflow Environment Variable to pick a custom save location relative to your home directory. Finally, if you use DownVid 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 (~ means it never shows): ≈ (4) ? 22m 32s ? 691M ? /Some/Path ≈. Indicates item is a stream. file: ~ series: ~ stream: Always present. (4). Number of elements. file: ~ series: Remaining audiovisual files in directory. stream: Single item: ~. 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: ~ /Some/Path. Path. file: Path of file. series: Path of directory. stream: URL.

  8. I am using the 'Play song' from iTunes as a workflow. The debugger shows" I know this is an issue with Mojave and the new 'sandbox' security bubble they put around interacting with the OS; I just don't know how to give it access. Alfred is already enabled in the seurity section. Any thoughts?
  9. I'm wondering if I can run AppleScript/terminal commands automatically in Alfred workflow. is that possible? any ideas?

  11. Add to and view your Pinboard bookmarks. pa opens Pinboard’s “add bookmark” page in your frontmost browser. You can submit bookmarks with ↵ or dismiss the window with ⎋. If you have the PinPlus app installed (get it with :pinplusupdateapp), that opens instead. Configure the Hotkey Trigger to add your current browser tab as an unread bookmark. pin and pun are similar. The former shows all your bookmarks (type to filter), while the latter shows only the unread ones. In each case: ↵ opens the bookmark in your default web browser. ⇧↵ opens the bookmark in Pinboard’s website, so you can edit it at will. ⌥↵ copies the bookmark’s URL to your clipboard. ⌘↵ downloads the video on the page, if any. It requires DownVid and will automatically add to WatchList if available) fn shows the bookmark’s description. ⌃ shows the bookmark’s tags. Unread bookmarks suffer an extra event when acted upon, depending on the unread_action Workflow Environment Variable. archive will mark the bookmark as read and delete will remove it from your account. Any other value (including none) will leave it untouched. :pinpluslaunchd will install (or later remove, running the same command) a launchd service to seamlessly fetch bookmarks every hour. Bookmarks are auto-updated in accordance to the requirements of the Pinboard API. :pinplusforceupdate will force an update, but should be avoided. If you ever need to update your Pinboard API token, call :pinplusresetapitoken. Download | Source
  12. Hello again. I'm rebuilding my own Alfred-Time Workflow (use Toggl and/or Harvest with Alfred) and I started developing some PHP packages to ease the development of Alfred Workflows in PHP. Last week I've released Alfred Workflow ScriptFilter that allows you to create a ScriptFilter output. This week I've worked on handling configuration settings. I think it's quite nice when we developed a Workflow not to bother spending time on things that are common to a lot of them. So if you use PHP and need to store some config, you might want to have a look at the package I've made. Here's the GitHub link: https://github.com/godbout/alfred-workflow-config Currently it's tailored for my needs. For example there's no feature to delete a config file. If you need stuff like that, you can open an issue on GitHub or we can talk about it here. I'll see how I can extend usefully. Happy productivity!
  13. I played around with Cardhop and here is a workflow that I made. I wanted to get more time before sending some workflows to the forum to setup a repository and with an auto-update to the workflow, but I didn't have the time yet for that. And since some people mentioned that they would like a workflow for Cardhop, here is one! Features: Keyword "chc" : Search a contact in Alfred and open it in Cardhop Keyword "chs" or hotkey : Send the query to Cardhop. If the query is empty, it tries to get the selection from the front application and send it to Carhop (In short, you can select the contact information on it's website or email and call "chs" from Alfred and the selection should be sent directly to Cardhop). You can use this action to send the selection or pass a string to your Favorites list (alternative to keyword: chf) or to the Cardhop's Actions (alternative to keyword: cha). Keyword "chf" : Send a string from your Favorites list directly to Cardhop (could be used as a Snippets/Bookmarks list to rapidly write a query to Cardhop that you know gives you the right information in it without the need to write it all). Write your list in the Workflow Environment Variables "Favorites" and separated by semicolon (";"). Ex: Call mom home;Mail boss work;facetime Complicated Name;website businessName;/MyTag;Direction dentist... A variable "{q}" could be used to have a placeholder for a string that you want to set just before sending to Cardhop (ex: "Email {q} work" where {q} could be changed to any name at the time that you invoke the workflow). Tip: To directly activate an action in Cardhop, it seems to delay the input until it has done parsing the query, so you can rapidly press Enter a second time when you select an item from your Favorites list in Alfred and it should run the first action that Cardhop returns. Keyword "cha" : Show a list of possible Carhop actions. If arriving to this function using the Send feature (chs), then the selection or query would be appended to the Cardhop action before sending it. Hotkey to Send selection to Cardhop : If you prefer to send the selection directly to Cardhop with a hotkey instead of a keyword Fallback search to send the query to Cardhop : If you want to write the information directly in Alfred without any keyword before. To make it works, you would need to add the Fallback search into the Alfred Preferences at: "Features/Default Results/Setup fallback results/+/Workflow Trigger/Send to Cardhop" External trigger to send a string to Cardhop from an external script. Other external triggers are set if you want to pop the Favorites list or Actions list from an external script. Append/Prepend string : Add a string before or after the main string before sending using a predefined list or any string if the query doesn't match an item in the list (Could be useful to have a list of predefined group/tags) (See "Workflow Environment Variables" and "Navigation" lists below) Workflow Environment Variables: Favorites List: See keyword "chf" above AppendToSend : Set a predefined list of string to append using the Append feature (ALT key) PrependToSend : Set a predefined list of string to prepend using the Prepend feature (CTRL key) Navigation: CMD key : Go to the Send feature Actions List (chs) ALT key : Activate the selected item and append extra string (using the AppendToSend list) CTRL key : Activate the selected item and prepend extra string (using the PrependToSend list) Tip: If you want to use Cardhop as the application to open from Alfred when you are viewing a contact with the Alfred Contact Viewer and press CMD+O: Insert "x-cardhop://show?id={uid}" into the Alfred Preferences at "Features/Contacts/Advanced/URL Handler" instead of using "addressbook://{uid}". This should do the same as the keyword "chc" but without the need to write the keyword before searching for a contact and use directly the built-in contact search of Alfred Download Link (latest version): https://d.pr/f/rQTPtu Have fun!
  14. Run browser bookmarklets from Alfred, without needing to having them installed in the browser itself. Note that you may need to Allow JavaScript from Apple Events in your Browser. 1 For the first step, get this template workflow itself. Though this is not strictly necessary (you can build it yourself) it serves as a starting point with most of the work already done. Proceed to open the workflow in Alfred. Next, get a browser bookmarklet to convert by copying its link address. 2 Run :cleanbookmarkletcode to clean the code in your clipboard. It performs substitutions necessary to avoid problems when pasting the code in the next step. 3 Open the Arg and Vars node and paste the code. Extra If you’re not new to Alfred, you likely won’t need these steps as you’ll know what to do. 4 The template includes both a Keyword and a Hotkey nodes to run the code. You can delete either one by clicking on it and pressing ⌫. 5 If you choose to use the workflow via Keyword, do not forget to set it up. 6 Lastly, edit the workflow’s details and its icon. For completeness it’s pre-filled with my details. Feel free to edit them. Download | Source
  15. Create temporary email inboxes via Teleosaurs Mail. Call tmpmail to make a temporary email address and open a background tab with the corresponding inbox. The address will be copied to your clipboard. Giving an argument will try to use that specific name, while leaving it blank will create a random address. Download | Source
  16. Hi All, I created three simple workflows to search for either Messages, Contacts or Events in Outlook for Mac. The workflows are for Outlook 2011. They assume your identity is named Main Identity (I purposefully wanted to avoid searching backed-up identities, but the search scope can easily be edited). The workflows are available here.

  17. Hello there. To build cleaner workflows I needed to use some of the new fields found in Alfred 3.4.1 and 3.5. I usually use the fantastic package from Joe Tannenbaum to build my workflows but it's not updated and its fluent api is starting to show its limitation with the new nested fields. So I build my own. I started using it to build the v2 of my Alfred Time package and I'm quite pleased with it so I'm thinking, if you need to build workflows that handle the new nested field, you might want to have a look at my workflow. If not, Joe's package might have a nicer API. https://github.com/godbout/alfred-workflow-php Have fun, and be productive with Alfred!
  18. Search for emoji and copy them to the clipboard ?. Download v1.8.0 (2018-11-20) Usage: emoji [query] Press [return] (↵): Copy the symbol of the selected emoji (e.g. ?) to your clipboard. Press [alt]+[return] (⌥↵): Copy the code of the selected emoji (e.g. `:rofl:`) to your clipboard. Press [cmd]+[return] (⌘↵): Paste the code of the selected emoji (e.g. ?) to your frontmost application. Automatic Updates: This workflow will automatically check for updates at most once per day. If a new release is found, it automatically downloads and installs the latest version of the workflow. All downloads come directly from official GitHub releases. Optional Hotkey and Snippet Triggers: Customize the workflow with either a custom hotkey or a custom snippet. Links: GitHub Project Download New Releases GitHub Issues - (please submit bug reports and feature requests here) Screenshot:
  19. Upload to a myriad of file hosts directly from Alfred. Pick paths to upload via the Upload file File Action. Directories and multiple paths will be zipped prior to upload. You can check your upload progress with ufp. It will auto-refresh the progress. Press ⌘↵ to cancel the transfer. You’ll get notifications of the various phases, with a sound when it’s complete (or canceled). The download URL will be copied to your clipboard. You can change the upload host in the upload_file_to Workflow Environment Variable. By default it uses transfer.sh. Other supported hosts are: bayfiles.com, anonfile.com, megaupload.nz, and forumfiles.com. Donwload | Source

  21. ADB or Android Debug Bridge is linked to Alfred with this workflow. GitHub release | packal I created this workflow because Android developers like me may need to connect to multiple devices at the same time, and it's painful to add `-s {serial}` every time when using adb for a simple feature. Alfred Workflow is a great tool to show lists and options. So here it is: Dependencies: adb aapt emulator These dependencies are included in Android Studio and Android command line tools. Configurations: Add the following environment variables in workflow settings to support its functions Name Value (example) adb_path ~/Library/Android/sdk/platform-tools/adb aapt_path ~/Library/Android/sdk/build-tools/28.0.3/aapt emulator_path ~/Library/Android/sdk/tools/emulator Features: keyword `adb` To list all connected devices. `adb connect`, `adb disconnect`, `adb reset` are also in this level. WiFi devices will be saved for next time quick connection Select one devices for its operations Input commands like "shell dumpsys -l | grep wifi" in this level, to execute directly in terminal Select "Show app list" to list installed apk, select one for further operations including: Open app info page force stop app launch app clear data uninstall extract apk file to desktop Select "Install apk" to search in local drive for apk files or folders to be (bulk) installed. Currently installed version will be shown, and install operation "-t", "-d", "-g" are supported keyword `apk` Search local apk files with package info shown and install them on attached devices. keyword `avd` List all installed Android emulators and start new emulators References: 109021017/alfred-adb-workflow nassendelft/alfred-android-adb
  22. Download media from a plethora of sources, even when embedded in other pages. Copy a link to your clipboard, run dv, and you’re done. The workflow will show you a notification when it starts downloading and another when finished. If you have WatchList you’ll see an option to automatically add the downloaded video to your watchlist. Run any option with the ⌘ modifier, and the full playlist will be downloaded. To see the download progress, run dvp. It will auto-refresh the progress. Actioning it with the ⌘ modifier will restart the current download (adding it to the back of the queue), while actioning with ⌃ will abort the current download. You can also run :downvidservices to install (or later remove, running the same command) DownVid actions to macOS Services. What this means is wherever you find a URL, you’ll be able to right click it and start the download right from the context menu. The Workflow Environment Variables represent the directories (relative to your home) where videos will download to, as well as the audio format to save when that option is picked. Download | Source If on Alfred 2, download this one. Works well with WatchList
  23. I developed a fairly robust workflow for Asana. Its main purpose is to allow for the fastest possible adding of tasks. You can read more about it and the instructions for its use on my site: http://mannieschumpert.com/quicktask/ And you can download the workflow here: http://bit.ly/1afnipH There are also instructions in the workflow Readme. It has fairly comprehensive error handling, but if you find any bugs, please let me know! Credit to David Ferguson for his workflow PHP class, without which I probably couldn't have pulled this off.
  24. I am running into a problem with the google drive workflow. When I try to search for a file (d "name of the file") it takes me to the sign up page and then a window says "Successfully connected to google drive" then takes me in a loop to again sign up and allow Alfred to access the drive. I have attached screenshots of the sequence (below) Can anyone help me with this? Thank you in advance!
  25. Hi All, I'm new here, and I've just created my first workflow: Percent Change. For some reason, I can never do this in my head, and I'm tiring of looking up the formula. This workflow lets you calculate the percent of change between two values, using the % symbol: % <value1> <value2> So, something like % 3 6 would give you a result of 100. The result is displayed in Large text and copied to the clipboard. You can find it, here: http://www.packal.org/workflow/percent-change I'd love any feedback.
