  1. A small Alfred Workflow (60KB, the icon takes 58KB) to get app's bundle id. Based on: Two Alfred Workflow of [vitorgalvao](https://github.com/vitorgalvao/requested-alfred-workflows) : List App and List Running App One AppleScript of [JMichaelTX](https://forum.keyboardmaestro.com/t/get-bundle-id/5976) No External Dependencies, Small, Stable https://github.com/suliveevil/AlfredWorkflows/blob/main/App Bundle ID.alfredworkflow
  2. When using Alfred to launch application, those apps does not always have their main window opened in the display on which Alfred was shown. This is confusing, you're using alfred in one display, and its action occurs in another display. It would be better if all visual feedback occured in the same display. Since mavericks, all screens have a main menu bar, and can be the primary display depending on current active window. One of the consequences of this behavior is that applications have their main window opened in current primary screen. Currently Alfred is always shown on the same display, whatever the current primary screen is. The problem is that you generally expect to have Alfred's actions being done in the same display. Worse, if you wanted an application to open in the same display than Alfred, you can easily forget to check what is the current primary display, and then discover that the application has been opened in the wrond display once it's too late. A good workflow IMO would be to always show Alfred's window on current primary screen, and give the users the oportunity to change the primary screen and let him hide it, changing active window, and re-open it before doing any search.
  3. Right now things like homebrew make symbolic links in the /Applications (or ~/Applications) folder to somewhere like /usr/local/Cellar/<package>/<version>/<Appname>.app. Now I have to go in manually to remove the symlink (public.symlink) and replace it with a finder alias (com.apple.alias-file). Other people in the bug forum just add the Cellar path to Alfred every time the version changes (way less than ideal). Alfred ignores symlinks in the Applications folders even after adding them to the "User-defined" file types in Default Results | Advanced. It allows com.apple.alias-file types however.
  4. The "Force quit applications" is a nice OS X built-in application. The great thing is you can select more than one application at the same time. I would like to be able to use Alfred and its "quit" and "force quit" commands to quit more than one application at the same time. In other words, selecting more than one application just like I can select more than one file/folder with the "buffer" feature. One could use the same modifiers keys of the buffer feature. In practice: 1°) I open Alfred search bar, 2°) I type "quit", 3°) I select all the applications I want to quit with the modifier key (for example: Alt+Up arrow), 4°) I hit Alt+Right arrow, then hit Enter, 5°) The selected applications close.
  5. Have created a hotkey which opens an application. Want to add to it an Alfred command which activates a menu item in that application. Copy of my workflow is attached Have added to my workflow a keyboard command which call the shortcut keystrokes for that menu item. Workflow I created doesn't do that. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.
  6. Windows switcher Description The workflow can be used to switch between the many windows in the current desktop. It's really easy to use, you can switch to a specific named window using the keyword swin <name of the process or name of the window>. Then a list with the following informations about the results will appear: Process Application name When you open one result, by pressing Enter on it, the selected window should be opened. In real the workflow opens all the windows of the process, but it puts in foreground just the selected window. With the ⌥ modifier all the windows belonging to an other processes will be hidden. ---------------------------------------------- State Author Emanuele Munafò Version 1.1 Last release 02/08/2016 Email ema.muna95@gmail.com Compatibility: Alfred v3 ( or higher) Alfred 2 NOT supported. ---------------------------------------------- Changelog and update v1.1Now the results are filtered by both the name of the window and the name of the process. [02/08/2016] Thanks to: Jean-Claude Jung First release [01/08/2016] ---------------------------------------------- Screenshots ---------------------------------------------- Download Click here to download from Packal ---------------------------------------------- Bug You can contact me here or by email if there is something wrong with the workflow. I had never programmed with Applescript until now, so be kindly if the structure of the script is not so good. Known: All the windows of the process will be opened, not the best way. If a process has many windows in different desktop some issues can be revealed. ---------------------------------------------- Todo Open just the selected window. Add caching system for icon path/appname (It should improve the performance of about 1 sec)
  7. I often find myself using the drag and drop feature of alfred, whereby I can drag an item from the list just like you can drag an file from the desktop. For example, this is how I attach email documents. This is pretty nice, but it would be really nice if I could do this with they keyboard. Is there a workflow for that? If not, does this seem like a feasible thing to do? Thanks for any help you can provide!
  8. Hey guys, If I drop a new app into my /Applications folder, the most times I want to open it immediately with Alfred (Press Shortcut and type in the first letters of the name). But often the directory is not indexed yet so I have to remove the last letter / add the last letter / remove / add / remove / add / .. because otherwise the results aren't updated. Is there a way to let Alfred watch the Applications folder so that the result is immediately available after I've dragged the new app into? I know I've probably spent more time asking this question than I ever need to wait for a new app to be indexed in my whole life, but you know it just feels not right IMHO. Warm regards from Germany, Dennis
  9. Hi there is there anyway to launch an application (e.g. Marked 2) with a specific path? I'm trying to open a file with an application that I wish for Alfred to launch, so something along the lines of: "marked 2 <path to file>" Should hopefully open the file in marked 2. Thanks!
  10. For whatever reason, I am unable to open the app ToDoist in Alfred. This is the only application I have had this issue with in the past 1-2 years I've been using Alfred. Here are some screenshots of what it looks like when I try to search for ToDoist (you can see the app is already open in the dock below). Any advice? Thanks! Zoë
  11. OK, so what I want is to be able to type "app" with a name of an application installed on my system, to show the version of the app in the Alfred results ... much like how in Yosemite we can type an app name and have the version/purchased date/etc listed on the right pane of Spotlight. I have had to go back to Mavericks for now as Yosemite feels so unfinished on my system. I LIKE how in Alfred I can TAB to complete an application's name with a file filter, but I can not display results of a script with a file filter unless I use large text. I have a workflow (temp) that will use the file filter and run an osa-script to output the application version to large text: get version of application "{query}" BUT, I'd like to be able to get autocomplete into a script filter if I could ... is this possible?
  12. Hi Folks, I have a problem that Alfred does not lists all installed applications. There are several apps which Alfred cannot find. For example Microsoft Office Apps like Word or Lync are not listed. Let me quickly summarize what I tried so far to fix it: I checked this page: http://support.alfredapp.com/kb:indexing Spotlight is finding the apps All Spotlight Search Results are checked in SystemPref. All necessary folders are in Alfred's Search Scope (more about that later) I reloaded Alfred's Cache many times (even quit it) I think I see a small pattern here. All Apps which are in /Applications are listed like intended. Only apps in subfolders like /Applications/Microsoft/ or /Application/Garmin are not listed. However, there are exceptions like /Applications/modelio/ or /Applications/MAMP/ are listed. Interestingly, both subfolders /Applications/Microsoft/ and /Applications/Garmin/ are in Alfred's Search Scope but /App/modelio and /App/MAMP are not in that list but Alfred knows these subfolders are in /Applications/. I have the feeling Alfred cannot recreate the index correctly. Is there a way I can force Alfred to do it?
  13. Hello there This is my first Workflow published here, I hope, that some of you will find it useful. App Install Installs Apps from your Downloads folder This Workflow is inspired by the Alfred v1 Extension from Christian Schlensker, written in Python, and set it up as an Alfred v2 Workflow. As far as I know, nobody else has ported this script over, so here we go: It searches your Downloads-Folder for any *.app, *.pkg, *.alfredworkflow, *.dmg- and *.zip-Files shows you a list sorted by most-recently-added you can search in that list by entering a string after the keyword installs the apps /Applications or opens the *.pkg To use it, simply type install and hit Enter. If you use ⌘-↩ it will delete the download after installing. You can search in the results: You can also select any appropriate file within Alfred and use the install-File-Action: Supported Filetypes: Currently, this Workflow will find all zips, dmgs, apps, alfredworkflows and pkgs in your download-folder and install all apps and pkgs inside zips and dmgs. It does not try to find out, if a pkg is an uninstaller or not! Getting the Workflow You can find this Workflow on Github or download the Workflow directly. Settings You can customize the list of searched paths (for example, so that the workflow searches both your Download-Folder and your Desktop-Folder) and you can customize the install-location for normal Applications. Please tell me how you like it, what you would want to change, etc! I am still looking for a new Icon (please contact me if you have one! (: ). Remember that I personally consider this Workflow as being Beta-Software so please help me to find and fix every bug you might encounter. For more Information about Features and Settings, please read the Documentation at Github. Changelog v1.0: [17. March]:Complete rewrite; created individual installation-framework; new Icon Bugfix: Prevent faulty symlinks when installing from zips by not using python anymore Feature: Substring Filtering for Searchresults v0.4: [29. May]:​Ability to install Alfred Workflows Ability to run pkgs Some bugfixes v0.3: [28. May]Fix Symlinkproblem in Zipfiles Add ability to delete Download after install (by pressing ⌘-↩) v0.2:Add ability to install from `*.zip`-Files Show all possible matches instead of only one (This is still sorted by most-recent) v0.1: Initial Release​ Thanks very much for you attention fellas, I hope you'll enjoy this little script. Greetings, Franz
  14. As you can see in this little video (needed something to demonstrate) my workflow (the toggle wifi) shows up at the top about a second after the Wireless Diagnostics app shows at the top. This is quite annoying which regularly results me in accidently opening the wireless diagnostics instead of my toggle wifi workflow https://www.dropbox.com/s/khdd02ld4xkm90h/alfred_slow.mov Versions: Alfred v2.2 (243) OS X: 10.9.2, build 13C64
  15. I have Pages '09 as my main word processor. When I try to open a Pages template (using Alfred 2) that I use quite a bit, it always tells me that the template is a file that needs a newer version (Pages 5) of the program I'm running. The weird thing is that when I open this template using a shortcut program called Overflow, opens normally and into Pages '09. Why is Alfred the only program that's not letting me open this template?
  16. If you do any bug reporting, you may know what a pain it is to get version information for the application in question. Usually, it means going to the 'About' menu and copying version information from there. This workflow lets you copy and paste version information with a few keystrokes. The keyword is 'version'. Download • Packal (Beta) Example outputs: Alfred 2 v2.1.1 (227) on Mac OS X 10.9.1 (13B42) Safari v7.0.1 (9537.73.11) Mac OS X 10.9.1 (13B42) You can get version information for: The current application Any application on your disk Your operating system There are also several choices when retrieving the information: When dealing with application or OS info: Command: Copy and paste immediately When dealing with application info: Option: Copy with OS information Control: Copy with OS information and paste immediately Here's what it looks like: Enjoy
  17. http://imgur.com/EYuq3Ei http://imgur.com/EiQiF9T,dUo6oQz,hslqTBL,boP9zx7#3 As you can see, I have chrome installed, but when I try to launch chrome from alfred, it fails to find it. It started doing this quite suddenly a while back when it was failing to find any of the newer applications I was installing. At that time I didn't take it so seriously, and was busy, so I ignored the issue. Unfortunately, now, I fail to remember when exactly it started so I can't think of why it possibly started happening. Here are a few screenshots of my alfred settings and workflows. http://imgur.com/EiQiF9T,dUo6oQz,hslqTBL,boP9zx7#0 http://imgur.com/EiQiF9T,dUo6oQz,hslqTBL,boP9zx7#1 http://imgur.com/EiQiF9T,dUo6oQz,hslqTBL,boP9zx7#2 I tried clearing application cache and rebuilding OS X metadata, but it did not resolve the issue. In fact, after I did this, now it doesn't find any of my applications at all. I also tried clearing knowledge, but that didn't help either. It's probably got nothing to do with it but at this point I was just desperate and was pressing every single 'clear' button I could find in the settings. lol
