  2. Hey guys, quick question. Is there any easy way to use an image from a URL as the icon for a script filter? I've been downloading about 50 compressed thumbnails everytime I use a script I've been writing. (extremely slow) Do you guys know of any easier way to get images from a URL as a script filter icon? Thanks
  3. Conditional utility does not support variable like filter utility. For this, I have to use filter utility, but get the warning.
  4. I right now use a Condition if {query} is less than «.», but it somehow seams wrong. Isn’t there some more elegant way to do it? Best,
  5. Yo I need some quick help about building this workflow. Assuming I have some content on my clipboard that contains: <p><a href="https://extreme-commerce.teachable.com/courses/392385/lectures/9786542?wvideo=kq8qkcou90"><img src="https://embed-ssl.wistia.com/deliveries/ebed1d02876b16bbe631160edc9168069bdd66c1.jpg?image_crop_resized=800x432.5&amp;image_play_button_size=2x&amp;image_play_button=1&amp;image_play_button_color=09A59Ae0" width="400" height="216.25" style="width: 400px; height: 216.25px;"></a></p><p><a href="https://extreme-commerce.teachable.com/courses/392385/lectures/9786542?wvideo=kq8qkcou90">How to add and use product hunting tools | Extreme Commerce</a></p> I would like alfred to get the video ID that is "kq8qkcou90" in the above string (all the other parts are dynamic before wvideo= and after "> so I am guessing the script should somehow filter the rest of the string. After doing that the script should place it under this string: youtube-dl http://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/kq8qkcou90 and pass it to terminal. Any help would be appreciated. P.S. I tried to do this way but it didn’t help:
  6. I'm trying to create a workflow that searches only for Premiere CC project files on my machine (or mounted network drives,) but filtering out any Premiere CC project files that are contained within any folders with the word "Auto-Save" in the title. Is something like that possible? I can create a search like that in Finder, I'm just not sure how to do it in an Alfred workflow. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
  7. Here is what I am trying to create: 1. Keyword trigger to filter files located on my Desktop. For example a newly saved Word document. 2. Once found, select. 3. Open a list with predefined contacts (email variables) and choose a contact to email to. 4. Set the subject line to file name. 5. Open mail app and attach the file and auto insert subject line. I can make this happen with Keyboard Maestro. I wonder if this can be done with Alfred without complicated Javascript, which I know nothing about.
  8. I'm new to Alfred and already loving it. I'm working a lot with tags for my files and use hazel to auto-tag my scanned office papers. Using filesearch with tags works fine. But I want to narrow down the result with just adding a part of the filename. That's weired because alfred switches to search google now ... Am I missing something? e. g. "tags invoice %customer name% where 'invoice is my tag and %customer name% the variable for the actual customer I'm searching for
  9. Happy new year. I have a problem creating a filter I want to create a set of file filters that make it easy for me to find files created today, changed today, changed yesterday. Initially I tried to create spotlight saved search. (this used to work in older version of Mac OS) The problem with using spotlight search is I use microsoft outlook to read mail. It creates a ton of file in "~/Documents/Microsoft\ User\ Data/“ Spotlight search does not provide a way for you to prune results under a directory. You can go to setting spotlight private and add this directory however that prevents spotlight from indexing these files. Outlook is not longer able to search your email. I called apple support and they confirmed my analysis. Very sad. I am hoping to do some that is the sort of like the command bellow using Alfred $ find ~ -daystart -ctime 0 –print | grep –v Microsoft Unfortunately I could not find an attribute for working with paths. You get the folder name but no path info $ mdls . _kMDItemOwnerUserID = 504 kMDItemContentCreationDate = 2017-10-27 22:32:32 +0000 kMDItemContentCreationDate_Ranking = 2017-10-27 00:00:00 +0000 kMDItemContentModificationDate = 2017-10-27 22:32:32 +0000 kMDItemContentType = “public.folder" kMDItemDisplayName = "MusicTrainerCommonFramework" Kind Regards Andy
  10. Hello, Im pretty new to workflows so Im sorry if its silly question but I cant figure it out myself. There is a filter option so I cam simulate if+else statement. But there are just 2 options - equals, not equals. How to do something like "contains", "not contains", "starts with", "not start with", "ends with", and so on. Thanks for answers in advance
  11. Sorry @Andrew for asking you directly, but I think you're the only one that really know the answer since you're the one implementing it... I've been testing/using the new Match Mode of the Script Filters and I thought that when you said word boundaries that would mean word separated by white spaces. However, from testing this seems to be only true for word delimited by spaces. So, any other white spaces directly in front of a word (newline '\n' or tab '\t') would make this word to never match... At the moment I'm modifying the string before setting the 'match' item of the JSON to replace '\n' and '\t' with space, but I was wondering if this was your intention to only allow spaces to delimit words ? Here is a workflow to show you an example. Filter the results with the word 'match' [wbf match] and you will see that not all items are kept: https://nofile.io/f/sx6xst0g3RC/Example-Word+Boundary+Filtering.alfredworkflow I'm repeating myself, but thanks for this addition in Alfred! Best!
  12. Hello everyone, i more often browser through folders via Alfred and find myself wanting to press ⌘ + A to select all filtered files like in this case: Just to drag and drop then for instance into a Mail. I know i can use the mail action for that but not when I'm in a Browser or when i want to just Drag and Drop them quick all together and not one by one. Maybe there is already another way idk but this would be awesome to have. Cheers, Frozen
  13. Hi there, I'm a newbie to Alfred and completey overwhelmed by the possibilities of its workflows. As such, I have a newbie question but google and the search engine of this forum could not help me. In a workflow I'm using the (Action => Run Script) element to call a bash script that resides in my home folder. This bash script returns 0 in case everything is fine and a different number else. I'm now interested to evaluate this result but don't quite manage to get this done. Do I have to pass the result of the script into some variable of Alfred after calling the script? (at the moment the Run Script element only comprises one line). The filter element looks like what I'm searching for but it is not quite working. Obviously the output from the script does not really end up in the filter.... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Have a nice Sunday! Nils
  14. Alfred 3.1 (711) OS X 10.11.6 In the situations where input is a sequence, not a single string (i.e. File Actions and Hotkey+Selection in OS X where files are selected), the Debug and Filter Utilities choke on the input. They do nothing and emit no output, bringing the workflow to a halt.
  15. Currently, if I output the following: {"items": [ { "title": "Foo", "arg": "unicorn" } ]} I have to handle the `unicorn` arg in a connected output action in the workflow. It would be useful to be able to dynamically handle it without needing to create an output action. This can be useful for very dynamic results and creating reusable modules that create output with different actions. I propose adding a `script` property to the JSON format that when specified makes it not pass the output to any connected output action (like `valid: false`) and instead executes the `script` and passes `arg` to it. {"items": [ { "title": "Foo", "arg": "unicorn", "script": "run-foo.sh" } ]} This would make script filters a lot more powerful.
  16. Newbie question, and maybe I'm missing something, but does Alfred not filter the results of a script filter based on arguments? I have a fully functioning filter, but it seems odd that Alfred doesn't filter the results based on the value of the argument. For example, if I have a script filter with the keyword "Press", requiring an argument, and the items "one","two","three", I'd expect that typing "Press o" would limit the results to "Press one", where typing: "Press t" would limit the results to "Press two" and "Press three" I've tried both populating and omitting the uid field, to no effect, though I do understand that this field is primarily for "learning". Am I doing something wrong, or is this expected behavior?
  17. I would like to create a workflow that is close to the 'Filter from keyword and reveal', with a limited search scope but instead of display the search results in the Alfred window, I'd like it to reveal all search results in Finder (like spotlight, but restricted to a specific folder). Any advice is much appreciated. bests John
  18. Good afternoon (at least where I am) everyone! I posted to the @alfredapp Twitter, and was directed here, so here goes I need to be able to search inside specific file types for content. For example, my most used file types are XML. I have TONS of XML files that are used for various things (a web application) and there are always examples I am searching for withing older files, for use in new ones. The standard "in" keyword works so well it has become a crutch. However, I get more file-types than I am interested in, as many of the search terms are generic (like the word "custom") I have created a Filter for XML and that works great for file NAMES. How do I extend this to search INSIDE those files? "XML Custom" returns all of the XML files with the name "Custom" somewhere in the filename. Is there such a way as to do "XML in Custom"? or "in XML Custom"? many thanks for such a powerfully useful app!!!!! ~vonKemper
  19. Is there any way to filter the contents of a folder? For instance, if I browse to a folder in Alfred, then I want to only show the files that END with the word "Test", then how would I do that? Simply typing "Test" only shows files that BEGIN with that phrase.
  20. Hello I have some links which I use daily (they aren't in my Chrome bookmarks): Admin - http:// Production - http:// Log - http:// Hangout - http:// ... I would like to create a workflow i.e. "links" to show these links and filter them as I type, if I click in the link it should open the url in Chrome. I didn't find a similar example, all of them seemed too complex for what I want. Is there a simple way to create such workflow? Thanks
  21. On opening the Alfred Preferences and editing a 'File Filter' object's 'Advanced' fields: Press [+] button Select 'Other...' Hit the [–] button before exiting text field Add more fields (any of them) Next item will be blank Next item will have display problems when field view is scrollable This only seems to happen on the first edit after launching Alfred Preferences. Subsequent edits within the open Preferences do not glitch.

  22. Hi I would like to know how to make a script filter that works like the "eject" system command workflow. When I create a script filter, Alfred waits for the keyword to be complete before it actually displays any result. But when I type just "ej" Alfred shows the "eject" list immediately. Would be great to have that responsiveness in a script filter as well Thanks!
