  1. Here's a workflow I use to work with text files (which for me live in Dropbox, but that's not a requirement). It has these features: Create a new text file Query: create {folder to create the file in}, followed by the filename in the resulting dialog Search across existing text files Query: grep {search query} Append a line to an existing text file Query: append {file to append to}, followed by text to append in dialog Prepend a line to an existing text file Query: prepend {file to prepend to}, followed by text to append in dialog More at http://matthewhealy.net/blog/category/text-tools-for-alfred. I'd love to hear feedback and suggestions.
  2. I really like the clipboard merging feature, but I'd like to be able to have an option to separate my entries with 2 lines rather than just 1. It makes it much easier to see where the different breaks are.
  3. I apologize if this has been covered in the forum but I'm looking for a workflow that appends text to a journal file located in my Dropbox/@text directory The text file name is Work Log: February 2015 and the format is as follows ##2015-02-18 10:42 AM: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit 10:43 AM: sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Basically the workflow would look for the filename and, if not found, would create a new month and then look for the date (if date not present then it is created) and append a timestamped entry under today's date. My idea is to use FoldingText to fold the individual days but to have all work log activities in a monthly text file. I'm having trouble figuring out how to get it to log under the correct date instead of just logging to the page. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi all, I often track numeric values (e.g. weight, hours worked), or strings (e.g. food items etc), in a spreadsheet or Evernote, often multiple times a day. It would be great to use alfred to quickly do that. A great workflow would have a [keyword] [value] syntax, so that a [value] (plus maybe a timestamp) would be appended to a google spreadsheet (or Evernote note) specified by [keyword]. For example, entering "hours 5" in Alfred would result in appending the value 5 and corresponding timestamp to a google spreadsheet named "Hours Worked". Has anybody thought of something like that? Thanks! Giovanni
  5. Hi, first of all, sorry for my english. The other day I found that there is a terminal command to force openning an app more than 1 time. For example, openning two VLC windows. That terminal command is 'open -n /applications/vlc.app' My idea is to create a ALFRED WORKFLOW similar to this: openn USER_INPUT_(APP_NAME) an example: typing openn vlc then, execute the terminal command: open -n /applicaciones/USER_INPUT_(APP_NAME).app I know how to get USER_INPUT_(APP_NAME), but I do not know how to "paste" this text in the TERMINAL COMMAND One more thing, is there any command to really close a TERMINAL WINDOW? I know there is 'exit' but this command does not close the windows, just finish the console. Again sorry for my english, and thank in advance.
  6. Hello, I am looking for a workflow that will append the selected text ( it will be plain text always in Textedit) into another archive text file. That's it. The target archive file will not likely be open usually. If I have to Select the text and then copy to clipboard first, that's fine. Ideally I would be able to just select the text then trigger the Alfred workflow with the Hotkey trigger (archive file gets opened, text appended, file gets closed) and then I will delete the selected text in my working text file (inside of workflow or manually) Tried some Automator script but I couldn't configure the code syntax correctly. From : http://chronicle.com/blogs/profhacker/scripting-101-a-very-gentle-introduction-to-applescript/44969 set theText to the clipboard set theFilePath to (“/Whatever/The Path/Actually Is”) & “Whatever the Filename is.txt” set theFileReference to open for access theFilePath withwrite permission write ” ” to theFileReference starting at eof write theText to theFileReference starting at eof close access theFileReference New to this. Thanks for any help. Ray
