  1. Hello everyone, it would be pretty cool if it would be possible to select multiple Files, Clips or whatever from the Clipboard history and paste it. For instance: I would have copied a few files and wanna paste them. Here is an example: If i could now just press Shift+Arrow down to select multiple items and then just paste them that would be awesome If there is another way then lemme know, but else this would be decent to have. Another addition to that would be the ability to change the Shortcut for adding files to the file buffer. Something like ⌘+C and ⌘+V would make the file Buffer/Navigation even better Cheers, Frozen

  3. Alfred is constantly shutting down after I use the "spell" command. With all other commands and tasks it seems to work fine. I currently run Mac OS Sierra build 10.12.3 (16D32). Has anyone experienced the same issue?
  4. Hello, I didn't see a workflow for a VPN service client I use called Private Internet Access. So I decided to give it a try. I'm not sure if there are many people that use this service but I just wanted to share a simple workflow that connects and disconnects the VPN connection using Alfred. Here's the code/instructions/download: https://github.com/skonagaya/PIA-Interface Start Demo: Stop Demo: Thanks, Sean
  5. Hello everyone, I'm using Alfred at work for different paths on the Server. I'm doing so via a List Filter that contains all the Paths and passes them to the Action "Browse Alfred". The Paths look something like this: "/Volumes/pub/fdw/Project/ProjectNumber/ProjectNumberstuff/3_Electric/03_Konstruction/04_Presentations/" What I'd like to do is that i browse that path like this: "/Volumes/pub/fdw/Project/ProjectNumber/ProjectNumberstuff/3_Electric/03_Konstruction/04_Presentations/*1110" I can create the "*1110" or only "1110" which would be enough via another List Filter selection, but Alfred cannot browse that Folder as it doesn't exist in that way. Does anyone have another solution. P.S.: @Andrew It would be really nice if you could add a way to filder the List Filter in Alfred as its hard to find something with a lot of items. Cheers, Frozen
  6. Just to let you know, my latest Alfred tutorial is now live: https://computers.tutsplus.com/tutorials/exploring-alfreds-latest-features--cms-27910
  7. 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
  8. I have a workflow action that searches GitHub. I call it with Karabiner and as a way of documentation, I show the actions as subtext to the action like so : If text is large enough, it gets truncated with .... I know I can press a modifier key and hold it and have the text I specify here appear : However for me I wish I can just show that whole result in Large Type with a hotkey. Right now pressing cmd + l would show what I have typed in the window in large type which I find pretty useless. I wish I can press cmd + l to instead show this result selected in large type. It would be really really useful for me. Can such a thing be done already perhaps? Thank you for any help.
  9. I love to prefix and lowercase all workflows in Alfred. So for example I prefix my workflows with a: (as can be seen below) I also like to lowercase all the workflows (my personal preference). I also wish I could prefix other people's workflows according to their category. As I have over 200 workflows and it will ease searching for them greatly. The problem with this however is that when I update any one of these workflows, which name I changed, it will restore the workflow's name to what the original author had (not lowercase and without my prefix). Would it be possible to add a way to preserve the custom name the users give to the externally downloaded workflows. So if I decide to rename a workflow like so : And then the author has updated the workflow, I want to get all the changes, but keep the name I gave to the workflow. I think it should be possible as it is only the title. The bundle id will be unique to the author. I doubt many people do decide to change names of workflows when they download them but I really wish to use prefixes and keep my own names of workflows. I hope you can understand what I mean and this would be possible to do. It would save me a lot of time and would allow me to customise my collection of workflows more nicely.

  11. There is one workflow I often use, this one. Is it possible to create an external trigger for it somehow so it will work? If I do this for example :
  12. Hey all and happy new year πŸŽ„ I've read through this but it doesn't really specify how I can actually do what I want to do. What I want is to be able to call an Alfred script filter from applescript similar to how I can call Keyboard Maestro macros with this : osascript -e tell application "Keyboard Maestro Engine" do script ... -- where the name of the script goes end tell
  13. Provided below is a workflow that provides a demonstration of how to reuse a single script filter or, how to chain multiple script filters together so that you can create the illusion of having multiple steps or allow you to further refine results from the first script filter, using the second. Demo 1 This demo shows how you can use AppleScript to call the next step (another script filter) after the first script filter has completed. This could be used to send the value of the first script filter into the second, or, you could just save the values to file and then read them all back in when you are done. This example will save the value to file. Demo 2 This demo shows how you can reuse a single script filter using autocompletion to separate multiple inputs with a delimiter. When the filter completes, you could then use that delimiter to split the string into its multiple parts. This works really well if your input data is numeric or short strings. Demo 3 This demo shows how you can reuse a single script filter, with AppleScript to provide multiple inputs/steps to the end user.The data entered by the user is saved to file in each step, then read in and appended together at the end. You could separate the final output with a delimiter and pass it on to something else if you wanted. There are many ways that this could be customized to your liking. Change the delimiters, how values are passed, etc. This thread is merely meant to provide examples of how this could be accomplished for those interested. Download the demo workflow here.
  14. I've been writing a lot of workflows lately and its been annoying to have to open aflred right click on a workflow and open either the terminal or finder to it. Here is my `wfd` and `wft` commands that do just that. V0.4 - Updated to support non standard workflow directories: Relative Path

  16. I have updated my description of how I use Karabiner in combination with different workflows and keyboard maestro macros. I think it's insanely powerful in combination. Perhaps some will find this idea interesting and would like to implement something like that too on their machines, the only current requirement is being on El Captain as this software is being rewritten for Sierra still and is thus not compatible. The most amazing thing though is that there really is no longer a barrier to adding a new hotkey. I don't have to twist my hands. I don't have to try and remember the shortcuts as first, I use them daily, and secondly, I can map my hotkeys naturally into their appropriate sections. Ultimately I am always two keypresses away from everything that I can dream of doing. And if you don't find this idea interesting, you can just see what workflows I personally use and love and there are many of them. P.S. I hope it is okay that I share links to the workflows like that, if any author takes offence in how I present this information, I am willing to take down the links. I am also currently in process of trying to understand how to use either awgo or alfred-workflow library to write a goodreads and quora search with autosuggestions workflows so I hope I can share those some time later.
  17. Hello, I sometimes see Alfred taking insane amounts of CPU, making my macbook whizz because of the fan noise. macOS Sierra 10.12.1 and Alfred v. 3.2.1 I was not using Alfred at the time, but taking a backup using hashbackup. I sampled the process: http://pastebin.com/raw/s6dgXZxa Regards
  18. Would it be possible to create a workflow that would list the current Finder tags the user has and fuzzy match search for them and then display them? Alfred gives an option to view these tags : But when you run it, it gives no list of what tags you have : You have to remember what tags you have that you want to search for. It would be awesome if one can type a trigger like 'tags' or use some keyboard shortcut to display all the tags that a user has in their Finder and then you can either arrow up / down to select the one you need or start typing the tag you want and it will match the relevant tags for you. You can also give some contextual info for the tags like number of items that are tagged with this tag as subtext to the tags. Where can I start looking to try and make something like this? It would be extremely useful for me as I have Hazel automatically choose certain tags for some files in a smart way but I don't have an easy way to view these tags and work with them well. This workflow would fix this for me. Thank you for any help.
  19. The initial motive is to automatically use current front browser's site for site search. Current it includes google suggestion, instant search, site search and related search. Suggestions are welcome. Check it out in Github: http://zhaocai.github.com/alfred2-google-workflow/ It is also an example to use bundler to include gems in an alfred workflow. The command is bundle install --standalone. Usage 1. Search Suggestion Keyword g: provide google search suggestions based on {query}. 2. Instant Search Keyword gi: get instant google search results in Alfred based on {query}. 3. Site Search Keyword gs: get instant google search results of front browser's site in Alfred based on {query}. Supported browsers are: Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, OmniWeb, etc. You can use site:example.com query if you do not want to search for current front browser's site. 4. Related Search Keyword related: get related google search results of front browser's site in Alfred based on {query}. Supported browsers are: Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, OmniWeb, etc. You can use related:example.com query if you do not want to search for current front browser's site. Installation Two ways are provided: You can download the Google.alfredworkflow and import to Alfred 2. This method is suitable for regular users. You can git clone or fork this repository and use rake install and rake uninstall to install. This method create a symlink to the alfred workflow directory: "~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows". This method is suitable for developers.

  20. Probably won't add anything to the discussion but recently I mapped a lot of keys with karabiner to searching selected text for different services. These services, to be exact : Searching by Google can be done from System Preferences already : With Karabiner I can then map these hotkeys to actually nice human reachable keys. I can select text and hold a + space to make google search on it. Hold f and press space to make wiki search on it, g + space to search google images and so on. It is incredibly fast. I also have a ton of file filters now that Karabiner allows me to map things to well placed 'hotkeys'. For a lot of people file filters may not be a new thing but I hope this post inspires some people to set up some file and web filters of their own. Also recently one interesting project was open sourced (https://github.com/nathancahill/anycomplete). I now use it all the time to try and correct some words that I often have difficulty typing : I am curious if anyone here also uses web searches with selection? I think they are really really useful.
  21. I love contacts preview and the fact that I can search for a person through Alfred and get a quick glance over where the person lives, what his social media accounts are, his website and notes I made. The only thing I wish if Alfred was more intelligent about these links. For example here is my Contact card : I can make actionable urls and that is great but I just wish that clicking on the twitter handle of the contact would bring up TweetBot with that profile name, if user has no Twitter Client, than a webpage opens. I use this to open url links in TweetBot (http://robmathers.github.io/tweetbotlinks/) so perhaps if you make that field actionable with url, then TweetBot will open for that link. I wish to have it work for LinkedIn, Facebook and Flickr. You can skip MySpace Thank you. I also really wish there was a modifier hotkey to go from here : With a modifier key, straight to Contacts app itself with the user in focus. I also really wish to make a contact filter action that when activated will only search through my contacts. I have a lot of contacts in the Contacts app and I don't want to mix my Alfred search with contacts but I still want to search for them. A dedicated contact search filter would be amazing. I hope these are all possible to do. Thank you a lot.
  22. Hello everyone, when I'm using Alfred to navigate files on a Server that have quite loading times and navigating into large files like layouts, Alfred starts to hang. Like it tries to preview the large Layout and doesn't respond for a couple of seconds until i can keep navigating and it hangs at the next file. This way Alfred becomes unusable for me. is there a way to deactivate the small preview in Alfred? That should fix the issue. Kind regards, Marcel Reuß
  23. I just had a tutorial published recently on JSX programming with examples in Alfed: https://computers.tutsplus.com/tutorials/a-beginners-guide-to-javascript-application-scripting-jxa--cms-27171 Check it out.
  24. I am really curious how do you guys take use of the file system navigation and actions built into Alfred? I just realised that I can 'right arrow' on any file and go to the file system action mode : But I am curious how can I better bring it to use for my own workflow. How do you guys use it, if you do use it at all?
  25. I am curious because just now I realised that I can map it to a single click of left shift with karabiner and it is amazing. Before it was on my right command with a single click too. I also use shift from the keyboard by holding down semicolon so I don't worry if I ever accidentally press shift while writing capital letter. Seriously, an alfred trigger on just the left shift is phenomenal. What are your guy's trigger for opening up Alfred?
