HI, I'm a huge fan of Alfred, and I use it every day for many things. In my setup, there are always a number of directories I like to exclude from Alfred's result list (such as any node_modules/ or bin/ directories). Currently, I must always manually add them to the Privacy tab in Spotlight preferences, though this is far from ideal (because I have two Macs, I must perform this chore on them both). I llooked through the Alfred docs in search of a better solution (ideally, something I could automate) and discovered the alfred:ignore Spotlight comment, which was exactly what I needed (or so I thought). However, after applying alfred:ignore (programatically, of course) to all directories I desire to exclude, I noticed something rather peculiar and counterintuitive. It seems that alfred:ignore only ignores the directories themselves (the ones to which you add alfred:ignore), but not any their subdirectories. As a result, though I no longer see the ignored root directories in Alfred, all of their subdirectories still show in the results. Things I've tried: reloading Alfred's cache via the reload keyword, and clearing Alfred's application cache under Alfred Preferences > Advanced, but neither of those options made Alfred ignore the subdirectories of the directories I've ignored. Questions: is this a bug or is this the expected behavior? And if the latter is true, then how could I tell Alfred to recursively ignore directories in a way that can be automated? I hope that all makes sense. Please let me know if I need to clarify anything. Thanks in advance, Caleb
Strictly not a workflow, but using App Hazel to monitor Workflows folder and add the workflow name to the Comments field, making it easy to see in Finder what folder is associated with what workflow. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/100324951/workflows.hazelrules
issue: - many snippets are hard to organise - there is no way to document what a snippets is doing feature req: when creating snippet add a new field called 'comment/doc' that can be used to store some text like description or some kind of documentation along the snippet code itsel. this filed should not be pasted when snippet is executed but rather be used to describe the snippet
* What you were doing when the issue happened Trying to find a folder based on a spotlight comment. * Where you able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action Yes * Include the Alfred version & build number you are using v2.0.3(187) with powerpack * Include your OS X version 10.8.3 ================================== The folder is showing up on spotlight. I managed to get it to work after I un checked 'Include Folders in Home' and added the home folder manually so not a big issue anymore but I thought I will report it just in case it helps.
