  1. I would love to be able to directly access all of Alfred's default file actions in my workflows. @Andrew recently added some awesome new actions for the buffer - and, Alfred already included some of the other default file actions, like Reveal and Browse - but I'd love to be able to access other default file actions, too - such as Open With, Recent Documents, etc. At the moment, if you want to access these without extra steps, you have to use GUI-based approaches that type the file action's name into the File Action panel, which are always imminently fragile and problematic.
  2. That’s my first ‘real’ workflow made to ease my everyday job workflow. Hope you will benefit from it too. What that file action does is to simply copy the name of selected folder(s) or file(s). Of course workflow works not only in Alfred File Viewer but everywhere you can select files using for example the Hotkey. → DOWNLOAD Changelog: 1.6: and again I have rewrote my workflow – now in Python it does finally support copying multiple file/folder names! 1.5: completely rewritten version now uses only bash script (4 lines of code) so it'
  3. Typinator Set Converter File action for converting Typinator sets to Alfred snippet collections Download | GitHub The workflow supports only Typinator sets exported as plain text files. (.tyset and .typubset are proprietary binary formats and cannot be read) When converting Typinator snippets, the workflow replaces Typinator’s cursor marker {^} with Alfred’s cursor placeholder {cursor}. Other Typinator markers are not supported. The workflow uses OneUpdater for automatic updates. Usage Select one or more Typinator snippe
  4. Hi, This workflow adds a File Action to allow for sending a document to your default printer. Eg: send a document to printer, print selected files. It takes an Automator workflow and runs it like so /usr/bin/automator ./print-selected.workflow download here https://github.com/fxjkhr/alfred-workflows/blob/master/print-selected.alfredworkflow
  5. This workflow sends selected files to a Dropshelf. Dropshelf keeps links to files (and other bits) in a temporary by persistent "shelf" at the edge of the screen. It is very handy for dragging files and clippings between applications and screens. This workflow: Sends selected files in finder to a new Dropshelf with ⇧+⌘+D Adds a Send to Dropshelf File Action to Alfred It requires Dropshelf App from http://pilotmoon.com/dropshelf/ Download the Workflow from here.
  6. Hi, I build a shell script using pdftk and pdfjam to arrange a PDF file as 2 pages on 1 (same page on left and right of the new page): #! bin/bash fullfile="$1" outfile=${fullfile/.pdf/ (2 auf 1).pdf} /opt/local/bin/pdftk A="$fullfile" B="$fullfile" shuffle A1-end B1-end output ~/.temp/out.pdf /Library/TeX/texbin/pdfjam --nup 2x1 ~/.temp/out.pdf --landscape --a4paper --outfile "$outfile" rm ~/.temp/out.pdf It works fine if I call ist from the Terminal like this: sh 2on1_test.sh ~/Desktop/2-auf-1/a3h.pdf But it doesn't work as part of my file action in Alfred. I s
  7. I love using Alfred to browse folders, and would like to extend the same functionality to other types of files. Is there a way to create a File Action that triggers Alfred's Browse feature for the folder housing whatever file has been selected from the search results? For example, let's say that I have a folder on my desktop called "Folder 1" that houses several PDFs. When using Alfred, if one of the PDFs came up in my search results, I'd love to use a file action on that PDF to effectively trigger Alfred's browse function on Folder 1. In an ideal world, it
  8. Hi, I wasn't able to find the answer to the following question online: I created a workflow for sharing links from google drive. It's basically a File Action followed by a python script that uses this library. I'm then copying the resulting link to the clipboard. Now, I would like to be able to select some options before the script is run and go to a second scree where I could select access rights (e.g., owner/writer/commenter/reader). In the same way that you can select "Open with..." with File Action and then select an application: In other w
  9. Hi, have a file action to convert gifs to mp4 using ffmpeg: ffmpeg -f gif -i {query} -pix_fmt yuv420p -c:v libx264 -movflags +faststart -filter:v crop='floor(in_w/2)*2:floor(in_h/2)*2' ~/Desktop/converted_file.mp4 This works perfectly with the terminal command but I want it to run it as a script so it doesn't opens a terminal window. Do I have to change anything? The way it it's not working. Thanks in advance for your help!
  10. Hello Alfred users, I created a new Alfred workflow, or better said file action, called alfred-ffprobe. It displays information about selected video files. Github alfred-ffprobe Alfred 3 workflow to display an information about various video files. Installation Install the ffprobe to you MacOS. You could do it for example by using Homebrew and installing ffmpeg package. brew install ffmpeg Install alfred-ffprobe wokflow. Usage Select a video file in finder and invoke the alfred file actions
  11. Hello guys, Im trying to figure out how to add a "copy file" option in file action list, anybody knows how? The reason, I do have a lot of apps support directly paste in files, to send/share/upload/sync whatever different kinds of functions. I found it really handy to just copy files I need, then paste them in the app windows. both "copy to" and "copy file path" works in a different way, just need to copy the file it self. So, anyone help is really appreciated edit: this just came into my mind: could there also be a "preview" in this option list? that would be really speed th
  12. Greetings, First, thanks for a great and honest product. I'm surprised Apple hasn't hired you folks yet ;-) I was wondering if the usual "File Action" shortcut [⌥・⌘ ・\] could be used to place something in the File Buffer? You'll recall that that only way presently to add something to the buffer is by [⌥・ ↑], which is great... IF you're browsing from within Alfred. If you're traversing multiple folders in Finder, this would be a tremendous time-saver. As an aside, would you be amenable to the idea of making available some sort of programmer's API? I'd be happy to code this up myself
  13. Just wondering, is there any way to restrict file types in the File Action trigger? For example, "show for all types of files EXCEPT folders"
  14. To New Folder Overview Alfred File Action to move or copy selected files into a new folder. You can also use it to only create a new folder. Suggested by roza. How to use it select files in Alfred browser select “To New Folder” action type the new folder name select Move, Copy or New Folder (see screenshot above) Download Version 1.0 Release date: 20 Apr 2013 Supports Alleyoop 2 Download now
  15. Although this seems like a complicated workflow, it isnt. This is mainly for icon designers. When you create an ".icns" file for the mac (which contains 1024px, 512px, 256px, 32px and 16px versions) and save the file (with icon composer for instance), the file's icon stays on the normal ".icns" file. This means you can't copy the icon and paste it in another file/folder. Some website tell you to open the .icns in preview, select and copy from there… THIS IS WRONG! it only copies the current resolution in preview, but not all versions. If you look at your finder icons, you will see they ar
  16. I just created this workflow to get video duration times from a video file that I can just paste into a document. Maybe someone else would like it as well. https://github.com/raguay/MyAlfred/blob/master/VideoTime.alfredworkflow?raw=true
  17. This workflow generates some useful checksums from file contents. It is implemented as file action which makes it easy to use! It works pretty nice with my "Last changed files" workflow and also can be used to checksum a file in finder by setting a hotkey to the "File Selection" in "Find File". You can download it here: https://github.com/oderwat/alfredworkflows/raw/master/Checksums.alfredworkflow My other workflows are here: https://github.com/oderwat/alfredworkflows Versions: V1.0 - Initial releases
  18. This workflow launches Ironic Software's free Tagit app for quickly adding OpenMeta tags to anything in OS X. Out of the box you can use the hotkey ⇧⌘T (Shift+Command+T) to launch the tagging window on the selected file anywhere in Finder. The Workflow also adds a file action to Alfred. Works nicely with Corentin Cras-Méneur's OpenMeta search workflow. I've been tagging Applications then searching by tags like "writing" and "finance" to choose not by name, but by function.

  19. Hi everyone. During the beta period I created a workflow with a number of file actions in it. I could have sworn that these workflow file actions were available for selected files in Finder (when using the File selection hot key) as well as via Alfred's own file navigation system. However now (using Alfred v2.01 (173)) the file actions are only appearing for files in the Alfred file navigation and not for selected files in Finder (when the File selection hot key is used). So ... did I have a moment of confusion late one night and just imagine that workflow file actions can apply to F
  20. The file actions only filter by file type, that works well in most situations but not all of them. For example, if I want to add file actions to git folders, my only recourse is to assume all folders are git folders since the file type is 'public.folder'. If it was possible to filter by filename, I could take one more step and filter by type _and_ by name, e.g., directories with names that match '*.git'. Best of all would be the ability to execute a script that indicated whether the file action was applicable. Here's an example of the possible configuration: Name: Open in SourceTree Name:
  21. Hi Andrew and Vero, please consider allowing individual icons for File Action workflow modules, just as much as for any other Input/Trigger type workflow modules. Use Case: I have a workflow that does EITHER A OR B as a script filter, based on whatever criteria the script filter checks for. I also want to allow for the same functionality as a file action included in the same workflow: Script Filter "Do A" or "Do B" -------------------> [Whatever Module Here] File Action "Do A" ---------------------------------> [Either another Module or use the same a
  22. I am trying to get a workflow that would allow me to add a file to reply window I have open. The simplest thing would be if this was a file action. There are already file actions for starting a new mail window with the file as an attachment. Anyone has any ideas how to insert the file into an open mail window?
  23. My file management scheme requires me to add prefixes to the names of files, which are then picked up by Hazel and handled in various ways. My applescript skills are admittedly crude, but here is my workflow (driven by a file action) to prompt the user for a prefix string and then add that string to the names of all the selected files. Right now, the default prefix in the dialog box is "archive-" but that's easily changed from within the simple applescript. The workflow is here: http://d.pr/f/bDxq But if you just want a peek at my weak applescripting chops, here you go: on alfred_script(
