  1. Hi guys, the new snippets auto expansion is nice. Thanks for such a great update! Anyway is it possible to set different format for {date} and {time} ?
  2. This snippet returns a string from current year to current second. {date:yyyyMMddhhmmss} example: 20191201162013 Can it be formatted to include milliseconds? appending "mmm" or ".mmm" does not do that.
  3. In Snippets I'm able to create a shortcut for today's date or date time 7 days from now with the simple syntax: `{date +7d}` and `{date time +7d}` What I'm trying to do however is use the {date:short} snippet in the same way, so: `{date:short +7d}` However this outputs: "11 (second: 38)" My question: is there any way of using {date:short} with Snippet date arithmetic? Thanks!
  4. I am trying to create a snippet that would produce the following: date=June 2016 where the date is automatically generated. How do I finish this? date={date:????} Thanks.
  5. I have a workflow (here) which works well to take trigger a snippet with calculated days, however, I'd like to make it exclude weekends (or alternatively include only business days), but I'm unsure how to go about doing that. I am assuming a script filter would need to be placed between the initial input of "number of days ahead" and all calculations based on that input.
  6. Here's a workflow that's useful for developers; it allows you to convert between timestamps and formatted datetime strings with ease. Simply type "df" followed by: "now", a UTC unix timestamp, or a formatted datetime string. This will present you with the parsed date in various formats ready to copy to your clipboard. Download
  7. I just added workflow snippets to my Time Stamp Workflow and noticed that I had never shared it. So, here it is. You can use "ts:stamp" to list the pre-defined date/time stamp format and paste the current date/time into the top application. Or, you can use the "ts:build" to build your own date/time stamp to add to the list. I also have several predefined snippets: ;tsl = the current date/time using the last select date/time stamp. ;ed = the current date/time in the mm/dd/yyyy format. ;dow = the current day of the week. ;nsu - the next Sunday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nmo - the next Monday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;ntu - the next Tuesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nwe - the next Wednesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nth - the next Thursday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nfr - the next Friday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nsa - the next Saturday date using the last select date/time stamp.

  8. Hey ya'll, This may be a silly ask but I'm new to Alfred so I figured I'd start here! Can anyone tell me how to calculate a new date ie 16 days from today's date? I tried using a snippet that looked similar to this: {date}+16 and it doesn't seem to work out. Any tips? Thanks!
  9. I've published the following to GitHub (https://github.com/Tam-Lin/julian_date) I'll be putting a version up on Packal shortly. Dates in the mainframe world are denoted by the number of days from January 1st of a given year, often referred to as the Julian Date. (I have Julian in quotation marks in the title because strictly speaking, the Julian Date is the number of days since January 1, 4713 BC; the date used in the mainframe world is the ordinal date.) Functionality Display today's Julian Date Calculate an offset of today's Julian Date Calculate a YYYY-MM-DD date given a Julian Date Calculate a Julian Date given a date in a variety of different formats After the result has been calculated, you can send a result to the clipboard by selecting the value you want to copy. Notes There are a lot of things that could be improved, such as dealing better with invalid entries, but it works well enough for me right now. Credits The workflow is primarily written in python, using the following additional libraries: deanishe's Alfred Workflow Framework python-dateutil icon courtesy of Oxygen Icon Team
  10. I have this simple shell script which adds today’s date when I run it: set the_date to do shell script "date \"+%y-%m-%d\"" My probem is being new and ignorant regarding workflows I do not know how to compose a workflow that will trigger this script. Can anyone help please? Cheers.
  11. I often end up in a situation when my entire screen is covered with windows and the tiny analog clock on the menu bar is just too hard to decipher. Plus, I guess it's safe to say that all of us hate using the mouse or the trackpad on those over-work days (hence Alfred! ).So I decided to make a most basic workflow using the "date" command of the Terminal. There are two keywords: 'date' and 'time'. On actioning these keywords, the current date and time (respectively) are displayed on the screen using the "Large Type" output mode. That's it! (oh, one more thing - I use the word "Clock" for the search result to avoid conflict with "Date & Time" of "System Preferences") Here are a few screenshots: date keyword date output time keyword time output NOTE: Although it is not apparent from the screenshots, the large type output is actually transparentso it does not really cover your screen with a completely opaque black panel! And a press of the Esc key is all that's required to get it out of sight. You can download the workflow from here: https://github.com/bedartha/DateTime I hope you guys like it. - Bedartha
  12. I created a workflow to display the current date and time in a configurable format. Pressing enter will copy to clipboard. You can also add and subtract time. Examples: date 3w: today + 3 weeks date -2y: today - 2 years date 2m -5d: today + 2 months - 5 days View GitHub for more details. Direct Download.
  13. alfreTS This is a time stamp workflow for the Alfred Application. Download the current package via dropbox. Open the alfred window then type now. The results show the current timestamp in different formats. Select a timestamp format to copy the shown timestamp to the clipboard. Paste it into any editor you like. You can define your own formats via the python strftime syntax. It is also possible to define your preferred locale setting to acquire the weekday and month names in your local language. In order to edit these settings you need to enter the settings into the script of the Script Filter inside the workflow. This can be done by editing the #commented lines. (In case you did not know how #comments work: lines with # in front will be ignored by the python interpreter and not be executed.) Please visit the projects github repository. If you are using this workflow and you happen to make a new format for timestamps please share it here. Thankyou! <( )> hug me <(^.^ )> PS: somehow I cannot add screenshots here. It says I am not allowed to link *.png files (T_T)" If you would like to see some screenshots please visit the github repository. The README.md contains two screenshots. update: new version online =) alfreTS_v0.0.201402142154.alfredworkflow Question to all users: Would you like to have an interface via the Alfred input window to edit your locale and your formats?
  14. I would like to search google, limiting the date range to the past 2 years. For example: (using g as a keyword) g iphone apps The search should only show results from the past 2 years. I had this working in alfred V1, but can't find anything under v2. I'm sure it's my error. thanks! Kevin
  15. Here's my first public workflow... you can enter a date, and it opens a page for that date in Google Calendar. As you can see, the workflow shows you the day of the week for that date immediately in the action title. It also does some simple date arithmetic, letting you go forward or backward a number of days, weeks, months, or years from a given date. Or you can leave off the date and just use +/-, and it will navigate forwards or backwards from today.

  16. Simple workflow to create a date-stamped note in nvAlt. This workflow simply prepends the date to whatever text you pass in as the argument. Download link - http://cl.ly/283S1q210H3h
  17. Select a file in Finder and hit your hotkey. Adds the date to the filename before the suffix E.g. Item Name.xxx -> Item Name-03-25-2013.xxx Add Date To Filename.alfredworkflow Default date format changed to YYYYMMDD per advice from atadams. Now: Item Name.xxx -> Item Name-20130523.xxx v1.1: Add Date To Filename.alfredworkflow
