  1. Hey Alfred team & community! I have a problem with the Chrome Bookmarks feature because of the way my Chrome is set up. It will take a fairly long explanation of it for me to be able to ask for help, so sorry in advance. I used to run Chrome as my default browser but switched to Safari months ago. I got a job that requires me to use Chrome for work. This means my current setup is Safari -> default browser, Chrome -> work browser. My work is somewhat complicated, with MANY web tools and reference pages I must access and switch between constantly, that's why Alfred's bookmarks feature is easily one of my most used features and very important to me, next to snippets and clipboard history. However, here's the problem: when I transitioned Chrome from my default browser to my work browser, I initially created a second "Person" inside Chrome. So, the profile I actually use today for work is a secondary profile/person inside Chrome. Since apparently Alfred only indexes bookmarks for the primary Chrome profile/person, what I was doing was copying-pasting my bookmarks in bulk from my secondary profile (the one I actually use) into my primary profile (the one Alfred would know how to index, the one I used to have as my default browser but now is useless as I use Safari, despite still being the primary Chrome profile because it's older). What a mess, right? Anyway, this used to work, but I quickly became grumpy with this hacky process. Since there's no way to change which Chrome profile is the default/primary one, I just deleted my primary/older profile. My thinking was that doing this would change my secondary profile into the primary one (since it's now the ONLY profile in Chrome), thus making Alfred index the correct bookmarks, from that profile, without copypasting hacks. Well, it didn't work. Now Alfred just doesn't pull ANY Chrome bookmarks whatsoever. I already restarted both Chrome and Alfred after making this change, but my bookmarks are still invisible to Alfred. What can I do to force Alfred to index these bookmarks for me? Thanks and sorry for the long-winded message!
  2. Google Chrome is my default browser. But as Firefox seems to have made some significant speed improvements I thought I could use both as "default browser". As it is not possible, as one can have only one default browser, I was wondering if there was a way I could set one "Open URL" action to open the url in the front browser whether it is Firefox or Google Chrome. As of today, I only can open the URL in the default browser.
  3. I love Alfred, but I think you forgot something in your new Bookmarklets feature: Why are Safari and Chrome the only source options for new Bookmarklets. Why not show a little love to Firefox, too?
  4. I find using Alfred as an address bar very useful, however one crucial difference is that a normal address bar prefetches the website as I'm typing so when I hit enter, the website loads very fast. In contrast, after typing a website and hitting enter in Alfred, the loading of that website takes a long time in Safari/Chrome. Would it be possible for Alfred to act more as an address bar and trigger a prefetch of a given website to the default browser?
  5. I have an Alfred workflow based on a JXA script. It acts as a control mechanism for focusatwill.com (an online music streaming service). It has basic functionality, play/pause, skip track... This was working fine in an earlier version, interacting with the page using query selectors, e.g. tab.execute({ javascript: "document.querySelector('.playerControls .playButton').click();" }) This site recently refactored their UI to use React. My basic controls still work (using querySelector), but one part of the setup (changing the genre) has broken. It used to use querySelectorAll for this task, but in the new React UI, the controls I need to reach don't exist unless you click in the UI ... In any case, the developers exposed an API in the site code, so I can do stuff like window.faw.play() window.faw.skip() window.faw.genre(genreId) And doing that in the developer console in Chrome works fine. But if I try to do the same using tab.execute in JXA (from Alfred), nothing happens. I'm guessing that I'm running afoul of the security model in Chrome. Does anyone know if what I'm trying to do is even possible (from Alfred/JXA)? Or am I going to have to try to do this as a Chrome extension instead? If it's helpful, here is the repository: https://github.com/tangledhelix/focusatwill-in-google-chrome And there's some discussion between me and someone at focusatwill.com on this commit: https://github.com/tangledhelix/focusatwill-in-google-chrome/commit/eb339cba143cdbc2593c73869e11bcd70f18042a
  6. I installed the Signal Private Messenger desktop client, which is a Chrome Webstore App. I frequently switch to it to message people, by searching for Signal on Alfred—this works correctly, I see the app and can select it. However, when I search for Chrome in Alfred and hit enter, rather than focusing on Chrome app, the computer focuses on Signal; this is annoying because I often use Alfred to change focus between apps on different Mac Spaces, but since Signal is treated as an instance of Chrome, it receives focus instead of an actual browser window. Please let me know if there's any way to disambiguate between the Chrome browser instance and a Chrome Webstore App instance! This is messing with my workflow.
  7. A lot of times when I use the snippet functionality in Chrome the first letter in the keyword stays up after the snippet expands. I've adjusted all the tweaking settings and the issue has persisted. I made sure that the Alfred helper has accessibility permissions and I have re-installed Alfred as well as Chrome. See attached GIF for the behavior. while the GIF shows it happening at the top of the text box, it also happens after I have already been typing in the middle of the paragraph.
  8. Hello! I made an Alfred 3 workflow to search and switch between open windows in the system and Safari (and Chrome) tabs. More app-by-app support are (hopefully) coming. It is uses the companion native app, that's what makes it much faster than the other alternatives. https://github.com/mandrigin/AlfredSwitchWindows/releases Sierra only (at the moment). PS: Thanks to Emanuele Munafò and his "Windows Switcher" workflow for the inspiration.
  9. As the title said, could someone please (I don't know how to,.,,) create a workflow that let google chrome open a specific url in a new window??? Also safari and firefox too??? Much appreciated.
  10. I have 2 custom web searches for google drive "gd" and "gdu" where "gdu" has a {query} in the url keyword search url gd https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/my-drive gdu 2 https://drive.google.com/drive/u/{query}/my-drive They both work as expected alone. but when they are both enabled the "Enter" choice is always the most previous one that was used. Meaning if the last one I used was gdu 2 (which worked) When I type in the second one "gd"it completes to gdu and waits for the query input even though it has the EXACT query. CASE Types in "gd" first option provided is: gdu second option provided: gd Presses enter: typed in text changes to "gdu" pressing enter with "gd" autocompletes to "gdu" and waits for input. Question: Is there a way for exact matches to populate the FIRST result in Alfred?? What I want no matter what the previous query was. CASE Types in "gd" Executes Just starting with Alfred (Launchers in general, other than spotlight) and I'm really liking it.
  11. HI, Is it possible to determine wich 1password url is opened in which browser? I do have a lot of logins saved, but some site are only supporting Chrome, other Firefox etc. Now when i search in alfres it opens always the 1password url's in my standard browser. I would love have the oppertunity/workflow to change that. I'm able to open standard url's in different browers, what i'm looking for is specific for some 1password urls.
  12. Hi, It seems like a basic thing, but, since I have no basis in even basic programming, I came to get some help here. Question What would be the script to open up a new chrome window (instead of the pre-set 'Launch Apps/Files' action in Alfred, which would toggle an already opened chrome window, if there is one)? Thanks in advance for those who can help.
  13. The 1Password Bookmark feature presents an "choose application to open the link" dialog every time, and then after choosing Chrome, it just opens a blank tab. 1Password is fully operational on my machine, and Alfred web search also works with Chrome -- so I think this is limited to the Alfred/1Password integration. OSX 10.11.1 Alfred 2.8.1 (425) + Powerpack Chrome 46.0.2490.86 (64-bit) 1Password 5.4.1
  14. I would like to use (either standard alfred web search or a custom workflow) alfred to launch google searches. At the moment, they all open in a new window if the app (Chrome, Safari, Firefox) is not already open. I would like the behavior to be that the search opens in a new tab even if the app is currently closed, and is launched by the alfred query. Any help appreciated.
  15. Search, activate, reload and close your active Chrome and Safari tabs and favourite sites. RBT allows you to do the following all from within Alfred: Search all open tabs across Chrome and Safari and load a selected tab. Reload a tab forcibly when you select it if you want. Add "favourite" sites to the workflow for quick access with defined keywords. Synchronise your favourites across computers. RBT for Alfred has been forked from the Search Tabs on Safari and Chrome workflow developed by Clinton Strong (with Clinton's blessing) and could almost be considered v2 of Clinton's original workflow. The below instructions are a clone of what is posted on the official Github repository: UPDATE August 8, 2015 - Version 1.1 Released Today I release v1.1 of Rapid Browser Tabs which has the following changes: Fix - Tab icon for Safari did not display Feature - Add "ctrl" key modifier to force reload tab on opening Feature - Provide feedback on settings initialisation and sync Feature - Enable favourite searching by URL Installation Download the .alfredworkflow file or you can get it from Packal. Run to import into Alfred Setup Before you can do anything with the workflow you will need to initialise the settings: Run rbtsetup and select 'Initialise Workflow Configuration' The workflow will then copy over the default configuration files and example icons. The workflow has been designed to enable settings synchronisation via a mechanism of your choice (such as Dropbox). It is easiest to set this up before you get too deep into configuring the workflow. To configure synchronisation via Dropbox (as an example): Run 'rbtsetup' and select "Set root config folder location" Update the folder name to point to a new location, my personal preference is "~/Dropbox/AlfredSync/Workflow Data/com.stuartryan.alfred.rapidbrowsertabs/" (however you can use any location as long as you set it to be the same on different computers) Ensure you have ended your path with a trailing forward slash (things will break if you don't) and then save and close the configuration file. If this is the first computer you are setting the workflow up on (i.e. that directory does not exist or is empty) run rbtsetup then select "Refresh workflow configuration" to copy the default configurations into place Repeat steps 1 to 3 for every subsequent computer you will run the workflow on (after the initial sync has completed via Dropbox). Configure a hotkey: To make your life easier I also recommend you set up a hotkey for use with the workflow. Open Alfred Click Workflows --> Rapid Browser Tabs Double click on the Hotkey box Enter your hotkey and ensure the action is set to "Pass through to workflow" The argument should be set to "None" Click Save Basic Usage The default keyword set is "rbt" here are some examples of what you can do: rbt google - Will show all tabs you currently have open that have google in the URL or the tab description. rbt fb - FB is set as a keyword for Facebook. This will show any current Facebook tabs already open and will also allow you to open a new Facebook tab in your default browser as well. rbt nf - Same thing as above but will open Netflix rbt netflix - Same as above, workflow will recognise this is a favourite site and show all tabs currently open and will also offer the option to open a new tab to the Netflix website. ctrl key modifier - The control key when held down while selecting a tab will force the tab to reload/refresh when it is opened For backwards compatibility with the human brain (and the fact that everyone is used to using the keyword "tabs"), an additional entry point into the workflow using the keyword "tabs" has been added. Depending on user feedback this may be removed or adopted permanently in the future. Advanced Configuration - Adding your own favourites YAML Config File Once you have the hang of the basic usage of the workflow, you can get down to configuring extra "Favourites". The favourites have been designed to represent the most used sites you use, the ones that you access day in and day out so that you can get rapid access to them. I have found after setting these up originally I have only added to the list a couple of times as it is expected the list will become relatively static after the first couple of weeks usage. To access the sites configuration: Run rbtsetup then select "Modify Sites Configuration" The default configuration example has examples that you can copy and modify to add your own favourites The two basic styles of configuration are: First Example: YouTube: aliases: "-yt" icon: youtube.png url: "https://www.youtube.com" Second Example: ? "YouTube Video Manager" : aliases: "-yta -ytvm -youtube admin" icon: youtubeadmin.png url: "https://www.youtube.com/my_videos" The key difference between the two above examples are the use of the '? "Site name"' in the second example. When the site name has spaces, you should copy the second example. You can however always opt to use this format regardless of whether the site name has spaces or not if you want to go the easy route. The aliases section can list zero or more aliases (for zero just use "", and do not delete the line). Each alias should be prefixed by a dash '-', and you can have as many keywords as you would like (but remember... less is more). If you are having problems with the site configuration you have created, a great first point is to run it through YAML Lint which can validate if there is anything invalid in your syntax. If that comes back clean and you still have issues please log an issue. Adding the pretty favourite images You will notice in the above example each item references a png icon file. You can save icons that you would like to represent your favourites in the icons folder. This is accessed by typing 'rbtsetup' then selecting "Open icons storage folder". As long as the icons in this folder match what you put on your text you can use a pretty icon. If you would rather not use an image just use 'icon.png' and this will use the default icon for the workflow. Supported Browsers Currently the workflow supports the following browsers. As Firefox does not expose its tabs via Applescript, it is not able to be supported. If someone is a whizz at writing Firefox plugins and would like to collaborate on a plugin to get this to work please feel free to get into contact with me.

  17. SoundCloud Control for Chrome Inspired (err, mostly stolen) by Google Play Control for Chrome. It can change playback, display the current playing song in a notification, and search through soundcloud, all from alfred. Commands scp SoundCloud - Play/Pause sc prev SoundCloud - Previous Song sc next SoundCloud - Next Song sc np SoundCloud - Show what's playing now sc search Search SoundCloud Alternative version Currently it has the same bug as GPC which is that you can't have more than 1 tab of the website opened. I prefer this myself because the whole point of why I made this is so I don't have to switch back to the SC tab again. However, if you'd prefer it to only have it search through the first active tab of each window rather than each tab of each window, then I made a alternative version for you. Download Normal version (searches through all tabs of all windows) Alternative version (searches through all active tabs of all windows)
  18. This is a simple workflow for controlling Google Play Music playback/search in Chrome. It is updated for the version of the web-based music player that was released ~May 2015.

  19. Hi all. I'm new to the Alfred PowerPack, and migrating from Quicksilver. One of my most frequent use cases is to: Type in say "versions" directly into Quicksilver (with chrome bookmarks added as a source), and the chrome link I use for "Versions" comes up quickly and ranked at the top. Now, I've installed this workflow: https://github.com/mdreizin/alfred-workflows and changed its keyword to "c" for Chrome. But now, is there any way I can get these niceties to happen: 1) [Removal of Keyword] Not have to use the 'c' keyword when looking to go to Chrome --> so instead of typing "c Versions" to get to my Chrome bookmark, can I get this bookmark ranked high enough to only need to type "Versions". 2) [boost bookmark ranking] When searching for "c Versions", the bookmark I want comes up as the 4th in the list. I tried doing the same search 5 times in a row, and its rank doesn't change. Is there a way I can boost the Chrome bookmark for "c Versions" to the highest slot? What do you guys think, can you help?
  20. Hi, I want to create a workflow so that when I am looking at a web page in Chrome I can copy the page's URL and Page Title and then when I paste it has created an HTML link with the URL and Page Title as anchor text. For example lets say I am on Alfred homepage - http://www.alfredapp.com/ I use the keyboard combo of Shift+Control+Command+C and Alfred takes the URL (http://www.alfredapp.com/) and page title (Alfred App - Productivity App for Mac OS X) and creates this on the clipboard: <a href="http://www.alfredapp.com/" title="Alfred App - Productivity App for Mac OS X">Alfred App - Productivity App for Mac OS X</a> For extra credit it would be super badass if I have any text highlighted on the page to be put in blockquotes with citation and have the Page Title link added to the end. For example, using the Alfred homepage again, lets say I highlight this text: "Alfred saves you time when you search for files online or on your Mac. Be more productive with hotkeys, keywords and file actions at your fingertips." Hitting Shift+Control+Command+C creates the following: <blockquote cite="http://www.alfredapp.com/"> <p>Alfred saves you time when you search for files online or on your Mac. Be more productive with hotkeys, keywords and file actions at your fingertips.</p> <footer>— <a href="http://www.alfredapp.com/" title="Alfred App - Productivity App for Mac OS X">Alfred App - Productivity App for Mac OS X</a></footer> </blockquote> Thanks in advance for any help and if I messed up and someone else already did this and my ability to search the forum is lacking I apologize.

  21. Open in Google Chrome Canary I just created a very simple workflow to open a URL in Google Chrome Canary. This was actually just for me to learn how to create workflows, but maybe someone will find it useful. DOWNLOAD Cheerio, Felix
  22. Requesting Workflow: Clear All Google Chrome Browsing History/Cookies/etc (porn wipe) I know there's gotta be some other guys out there who could use this.. They could call it the "Happy Girlfriend" workflow hahaha.. no, but seriously..
  23. I use fullscreen mode with Chrome, and whenever it is already opened and I search via Alfred the search opens in a new tab within Chrome. The problem is whenever Chrome isn't open. If I search via Alfred, then it opens up in a separate window from the one already opened in Chrome. Is there a workflow to make Chrome open all searches fullscreen?
  24. Hi, I'm opening all my logins with 1password and Alfred, it works like a charm. Sometimes, I need to log in to a different Google account, as an example, but if I use 1password in a regular Chrome window, I can't, since there's already a user logged in. I always open an Incognito tab and enter the credentials manually. It would be awesome 1password and Alfredd working together to be able to accomplish this workflow. Any ideas? Thanks!
  25. chrome apps indexed by path

    Hi! First, let me share my story through a screenshot, which might tell it better than my English ever will be: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s25/sh/8acc546c-b7d9-4c34-a6a5-bfe6c54a01cf/3a5ebaa5187c8db22f88ba966bd73de4 So here goes: I used to look up words in the dictionary using the „define” keyword. I would just type in „def” since this would match that keyword instantly, and hit enter, and then type the word. But now that Chrome has added it's apps to my home directory, and since they have the word „Default” in their path, when I type „def” they come up, and first in order, before „Define Word”. I tried tuning this, but to no effect. How do I make Alfred only show Chrome apps that I really want to launch by only searching by their names? Or make „Define Word” come first before all the rest?
