  1. Want to quickly check a page on Learn X in Y minutes (https://learnxinyminutes.com)? That's quite easy with this workflow that I wrote! Installation Install the npm package globally (using npm or yarn): npm install --global alfred-learnxinyminutes yarn global add alfred-learnxinyminutes Requirements You will need Node.js 10 or above Screenshots Invoking with lxy Type something after lxy to begin executing a search I would appreciate any feedback that you might have! Github: https://github.com/solkaz/alfred-learnxinyminutes
  2. An Alfred workflow to search the Ansible module documentation. Requirements As macOS still ships Python 2 which is no longer supported since January 1st, 2020 - Python 3 is required to be installed. Due to the usage of f-strings at least Python 3.6 is required. The workflow uses the Python 3 interpreter returned by /usr/bin/env python3 so the installation method won't matter. However, i do recommend the usage of homebrew. The CI tests on github cover python version up from 3.6. Required modules can be installed using pip: /usr/bin/env python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt Installation You can either download the workflow from Packal or the release page of the github repository http://www.packal.org/workflow/ansible-documentation-search https://github.com/abyth/alfred-ansible-workflow/releases/tag/v1.0 Usage The workflow is triggered using the keyword ansible and will use the following input as search parameters. Pressing enter on any of the results will open the corresponding documentation page in the default browser.
  3. if you're into these kinds of kinky things, the Alfred 4 Help is now available in Dash (and the other OS equivalents). https://share.getcloudapp.com/2Nu5pWXg (and if you're into building Docsets for Dash, you now have a PHP option here: https://github.com/godbout/dash-docset-builder) ☀️🌿️
  4. 1. I cannot drop aif files or mp3 files into the Sound Dialog folder.? 2. I cannot drop anything whatsoever into the "Open App/Files" Action module folder after I have put Safari into them; it seems like once you put 1 item into the box, it will not accept a new item afterward.? Ref: Help and Support > Workflows > Actions > Launch Apps and Files (from Safari) (What kinds of files is Safari supposed to be able to open anyway???) ? (On the other hand, I am starting to see some light peek through the clouds of my frustration; I am actually starting to make some of these workflows to do what they are advertised as doing) ?
  5. I just finished reading a great how-to article @ http://www.deanishe.net/alfred-mailto/. It was an exhaustive treatise on every little detail about that workflow (Mail To: workflow). We should have this sort of documentation downloaded with every Alfred workflow! ?
  6. Quick access to popular libraries, frameworks & tools online developer documentation. With all these great frameworks & libraries out there, it's hard to master each one of them. D2 (Developer Documentation) provides links to online documentation of the most popular frameworks, libraries and other development tools, so you’ll able to get some answers quickly. Workflow can be downloaded from Packal. Think of another great link to add to D2? Open D2 repository on Github Make sure the link is not already in the file Edit data.json file Add your link object to the bottom of the array: { "name": "Tool's name as appear on its website", "description": "Tool's description as appear on its website, up to 100 characters", "tags": ["lowered", "case", "tags"], "link": "direct link to documentation / api page, e.g. https://emberjs.com/api/", "timestamp": "current date as YYYY-MM-DD, e.g. 2017-01-01", "credit": "your_username@some_website, e.g. nire0510@github" } Submit your PR
  7. A tiny thing, really. In the documentation for the JSON feedback format, the term "array" is used for JSON objects. text, mod and icon are objects. items is an array (inside an object). In JavaScript, and thus JSON, "arrays" are ordered lists: ["this", "is", "an", "array"], while dictionaries/mappings are called "objects": {"this": "is", "an": "object"} (In JS, thing["key"] is equivalent to thing.key) http://www.json.org
  8. Dash 2 (note: paid app) has just been released and it comes with a Alfred 2 Workflow. Dash lets users instantly search through documentation for 130+ APIs (ranging from HTML to Cocoa), for more information, check out Dash's webpage. All of the Dash-supported documentation sets are available for offline use. You can get the Dash workflow by installing Dash and going to Preferences > Integration > Alfred. Supported documentation as of the 2.0 release (documentation is constantly added so this list might go out of date): iOS, OS X, Man Pages, .NET Framework, ActionScript, Akka, Android, Angular.js, Ansible, Appcelerator Titanium, Arduino, Backbone.js, Bash, Boost, Bootstrap, Bourbon, C, C++, CakePHP, Cappuccino, Chai, Chef, Clojure, Cocos2D, Cocos2D-X, Cocos3D, CodeIgniter, CoffeeScript, ColdFusion, Common Lisp, Compass, Cordova, Corona, CSS, Django, Dojo Toolkit, Drupal, D3.js, Elixir, Emacs Lisp, Ember.js, Emmet.io, Erlang, Express.js, ExpressionEngine, ExtJS, Flask, Foundation (by Zurb), Git, GLib, Grails, Go, Groovy, Haml, Haskell, HTML, Jade, Java, JavaFX, JavaScript, Joomla, jQuery, jQuery Mobile, jQuery UI, Knockout.js, Kobold2D, Laravel, LaTeX, Less, Lua, Lo-Dash, Marionette.js, Meteor, MongoDB, Mono, MooTools, MySQL, Nginx, Node.js, Ocaml, OpenCV, OpenGL, Perl, PhoneGap, PHP, Play, PostgreSQL, Processing, Prototype.js, Puppet, Python, Qt, R, Redis, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Sass, Scala, Sencha Touch, Smarty, Sparrow, Spring Framework, SproutCore, SQLite, Stylus, SVG, Symfony, Tcl/Tk, Twig, Twisted, TYPO3, Underscore.js, Unity 3D, Vagrant, Vim, VMware vSphere, WordPress, Xamarin, Xojo, XSLT, XUL, Yii, YUI, Zend Framework, Zepto.js.
  9. I know that it's all the rage in 2016 not to document products and rely on inefficient, inaccurate, poorly-written user forums to document a product. But in Alfred's case, I think it's a big mistake. From what I can gather, Workflows are quite powerful. And indeed, you've expanded them significantly in Alfred 3. But for those of us who aren't currently programmers, the documentation is virtually nonexistent, so we just don't use them. There's one overview page saying "here's what trigger/input/output are." Then the next pages are getting into bash script construction, instantly dropping to the level of discussing variables and control structures. But for those of us who aren't bash programmers, who don't understand what workflows do beneath the covers, how variables are used, etc. I think Alfred could be boosted to even higher success if people really understood and could access its power. But I'm a power user and I can't figure out how to access its power with a modest level of investment. I doubt other non-power users are able to either.
  10. Was wondering if there's already a workflow that does this, giving back results like this search for "cellfun": http://www.mathworks.com/help/search.html?qdoc=cellfun&submitsearch= but in Alfred. Or if anyone knows of a way to do this/can give me any steps in the right direction? Disclaimer: I'm extremely new to workflows, know nothing about creating them, and really only do some python and bash coding, so I'm really not expecting much from this, it's more of a curiosity.
  11. Getting the Escaping options right is notoriously difficult. So many workflows fail to work or choke on certain input because the Escaping options are incorrect, and it's a pretty esoteric topic. It bites experienced coders as well as relative neophytes. Even the built-in Google and Amazon Suggest example workflows have the wrong Escaping options (Backslashes should also be selected — the Google workflow chokes on, e.g., "what does \n mean?") That said, for any given language, there is a correct set of Escaping options. In my opinion, Alfred should automatically select the right Escaping options for the selected Language in Script Filters and Run Script actions and/or clearly document the correct Escaping options for each available language.
  12. Is there some way to add annotation/comments/documentation within a workflow? As the number of triggers/actions/scripts increases it becomes a bit tricky to remember which paths do what. Boxes with the label 'Run NSAppleScript' are pretty opaque and even adding a title to that box (the way that open url shows the url at the top of the box) would be a help...unless there's some other way to do this?
  13. Search in the jQuery API documentation and open the selected item in the default browser. Use the jqapi keyword followed by the search term. Download link: http://cl.ly/OH6s
  14. Search for JavaScript and CSS documentation from Mozilla Developer Network. Use the mdn keyword followed by the search term. Alfred will open the documentation page in the default browser. Download here: http://cl.ly/OI3N

  16. I got bored of fighting with Xcode to get to the documentation and look around for stuff so I created a simple workflow. Bulk of the code isn't mine as I got the main applescript here Just pulled it together as its nice to be able to search. Usage docs <keyword> - Searches documentation via XCode.
