  1. I'm very new to Alfred, so I'm still getting the hang of what's possible with Alfred. I just launched a stock image webstore and I also upload these images to various stock websites such as Adobe Stock. Is it possible to use Alfred to do any of the following? Note: I run the latest Alfred on a brand new MacBook Pro running the latest OSX. Resize images that I dump into a particular folder on my hard drive? The dpi from 300 to 72 and the pixel dimensions to always be a width of 1000px wide. When I move an image into a specific folder it will open up Twitter and upload the image to a new tweet (or something similar)? When I move an image into a specific folder it will open up Pinterest and upload the image to a new pin (or something similar)? When I move an image into a specific folder it will add a prefix onto the file name (such as "READY TO UPLOAD") WHEN I move an image into a specific folder it will auto add it to another specific folder. If any of these are possible, what's the best way of going about learning how to set something like this up? Thanks!
  2. Hi everyone Im a new memeber of Alfred, and felt in love with the possiblities of alfred workflows. I belive i have a quiet cool idea, that could benefit alot of users, but i dont have the skills to pull it off. That is why i hope anyone in here could pull it off and share with the community . The idea is that the user would be able to choose at downloadfolder based on the URL they user are downloading from. For an example, i have made folder named "Facebook Downloads" and "Alfred Downloads"on my Mac. Whenever i then download a file from the www.facebook.com/* website, the downloaded folder would automatically get placed in the "Facebook Downloads" folder. If i then download a file from fx www.alfredforum.com/* the file would be placed in the "Alfred Downloads" folder. An extra feature that would be nice, if the downloadfolder also could be determiend by the URL sub root. For an example, downloads from www.facebook.com/alfred/ and www.facebook.com/mike/ would be downloaded into 2 seperate folders. It doesnt matter if the downloaded itme are directly rooted to the preffered folder, or if it would be redirected from the stardard download folder to the preferred folder. Though the first soulution would be the best, but most certainly also the hardest to do. When an item is downloaded on the mac from a website, the itme automatically coantain information about its origin (URL), if you enter the itmes "Get info". I belive this could be used to setup this workflow easier, but i have no idea. Maybe its more suited to be build in the "automator" app, build into macOS..? again i have no idea Looking forward to hear your reaction on this, and if anyone are able or will try to create this.
  3. Hi guys, I am here to share a workflow I made. It can help MacOS users easily create any type of file in the active finder window. Now, it currently works in two ways: Create directly (with keyword new) Directly use the specified extension to create a new file of the corresponding type, e.g., new filename.docx. It supports most popular file types, which can be find in ./template_file/. You can also add some other custom types in the folder by creating an empty template file. Without expansion, it will directly create folder, e.g., new dirname. Create from template (with keyword tf) Select the template file (like tf ...), then enter the filename to create the file. Select the template folder (can contains files and subfolder), then enter the dirname to create the file You can download it from Github or Packal: Template File. Enjoy it
  4. Hi everyone...as title states. I purchased the PowerPack and have watched a few tuts, but Alfred intimidates me bc Im just not a coder. What I'm looking for based on my workflow: I download something into my Downloads folder I open up Finder I choose the files (usually multiple files) I want to move Type in something like "moveto videos" into Alfred File gets moved to the new folder that I designate There are like 3-4 main folders that I use alot and need to create this for bc its taking me too much time to do it manually. I know there is Alfred's built-in Copy To/Move to, but I need to do it the way above. I've also looked at and installed the workflow from this thread, but that has an extra step that I don't want. Anyways, would love to get this working and I am happy to pay someone if needed.
  5. Fuzzy search across folder subtrees. Update 10/09/2016: Added Alfred 3 support and removed Alfred 2 support. Added ability to self-update. Update 10/04/2014: Added support for glob-style excludes. Unfortunately, these have to be added manually to the settings file at the moment.Update 05/04/2014: Now supports searching files as well as/instead of folders You can now adjust the minimum query length to improve search performance. This Workflow provides partial matching of path components, allowing you to drill down into your filesystem with a space-separated query. Each "word" of the query will be matched against the components of a directory or file's path, so a three-word query will only match at least three levels down from the specified root directory. You can use a File Action to intiate a fuzzy search on a folder or to assign a keyword to perform a fuzzy search on that folder. Download Get the Workflow from GitHub or Packal. Commands fuzzy — List your Fuzzy Folders ↩ — Edit Fuzzy Folder settings ⌘+↩ — Start a Fuzzy Folder search with the associated keyword ⌥+↩ — Delete the keyword–Fuzzy Folder combination fzyup — Recreate the Script Filters from your saved configuration (useful after an update) fzyhelp — Open the help file in your browser Settings You can specify these settings globally as defaults for all Fuzzy Folders or on a per-folder basis. For ad-hoc searches via the Fuzzy Search Here file action, the default settings always apply. Use keyword fuzzy to view and edit settings. Minimum query length — The last "word" of a query must be this long to trigger a search. Default is 1, but increase this number if the search is too slow. This is very often the case if you're searching a large subtree and/or also choose to search files. Search scope — Choose to search only for folders, files or both. Note: In most cases, searches including files are significantly slower. Consider increasing the minimum query length to speed up slow searches. File Actions Fuzzy Search Here — Fuzzy search this folder Add Fuzzy Folder — Set a keyword for this folder for faster fuzzy searching Search result actions ↩ — Open folder in Finder ⌘+↩ — Browse folder in Alfred Bugs, questions, feedback You can open an issue on GitHub, or post in this thread. Licensing, other stuff This Workflow is made available under the MIT Licence. The icon was made by Jono Hunt. It uses docopt and Alfred-Workflow.
  6. So I was trying to search for a folder that I use regularly and is in the "Favourites" column of finder (i.e. it's a folder that should definitely be searchable). I know I could click on Finder and click on the folder itself but I was testing it out so I could get an idea. It's an issue because it certainly should be searching for it... is there a reason why it doesn't? Also, I noticed that on clicking "Advanced" (in Alfred 4 Preferences > Features > Essentials), there's a way to change "User-defined file types to show in the default results" but I'm not sure what this means exactly? Especially as when I try to add something, it's just text and not a selection of folders/files. Can someone help me with this? I'm a complete NEWBIE with Alfred and even more so with coding so please bear with me - any advice is really appreciated. Thanks
  7. I have 2 identical folders, one backup of the other. When I perform a search for files, it returns only files from the second (backup) folder. Is there a way to prioritize search firstly in the original folder and secondly in the backup folder? Thank you!
  8. I would like to have the ability to for instance type a keyword and see a list of favorite files/folders that I have created. This is not a search or filter features, it will just present a static list. thx
  9. Hello, I rely on Alfred exclusively for traversing my file system - opening files and folders with Finder, that is. The problem is that every new folder that I open - unless it already is - is opened in a new tab. Since I jump to and from my Mac's directories like a wild ferret, a simple browsing session results in dozens of Finder tabs. Is there ANY way to make folders open in a current/most recent Finder tab? This would be a real lifesaver. Path Finder behaves likes this out of the box and it's really nice, but the rest of that software is so buggy I couldn't use it anymore. Thanks!
  10. Hi, I just installed ohmyzsh (https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh A collection of themes and plugins to supercharge zsh. Basically, these are jst .zsh and .md files) and wanted to browse through its files and folders. All these these and plugins are installed in a folder located at ~/.oh-my-zsh I created a workflow with a file filter action but couldn't make it work. I guess it is because its files and folders are located in one hidden folder. The workflow works when the folder is renamed ~/oh-my-zsh.
  11. I am trying to move 10 .jpg files from one folder to another folder using the Alfred bar ONLY. I typed the name of the Folder my photos are in and from there I realised I can't add them in a buffer. I couldn't search for each of them and add them in a buffer as I do not know their names. (i.e 12222278678578485.jpg, 176456373.jpg, ...) For the moment, I still have to use my File manager, select the files and use the "move to..." action.
  12. This workflow simply creates a new folder inside a parent folder. The workflow will prompt for a new folder name and then create a new folder under the selected folder. Multiple folders can be selected and it will prompt for a new subfolder under each one. Click here to download.
  13. Hi, I am completely illiterate in Alfred that I discover and it seems awsome to me! Would anyone be compassionate enough to help me start a workflow that would unfold all folders in a directory ? Any help would be much appreciated (including of course, learning material to be followed to progress by myself). Thanks in advance. JMM
  14. Create Folder Structure v1.0.1 This script creates a folder structure defined in a text file. Usage Select the definition text file, then open Alfred, and run “Create Folder Structure”. Definition File Syntax Create an UTF-8 encoded text file (e.g. in TextEdit), and start typing folder names, row by row, one after another. Each one must be placed in a unique row. If a subfolder is required, just indent it with a tab. Folder names can contain any legal characters the OS X supports. Example: First Folder Second Folder First Subfolder of Second Folder Second Subfolder of Second Folder First Subsubfolder of Second Subfolder Third Folder Metanames %date% - Creates a folder named after the current date. Download You can download it from this link. Feedback Feel free to contact me at royaljerry@gmail.com http://www.facebook.com/royaljerry
  15. Hi, I've been using Alfred the past month and I've become a huge fan. Yesterday I purchased the PowerPack, and since enabling it, I've run into one issue. Namely, before activating the PowerPack, Alfred used to search for my folders whenever I would type in a folder name. It no longer does that. (For example, I have a couple of folders on my computer called 'Sharon'; when I now type 'Sharon' into Alfred's search bar, only a contact matching Sharon appears; the folders named 'Sharon' no longer show up in the Alfred results). This is the case with nearly any folder search I complete (none of my folders are being searched!) In fact, I can't even search for applications anymore either (if I type in 'Evernote', only a Google search comes up for Evernote). I have no idea why this is occurring. Under my Alfred settings, and in the 'Features' tab, under 'Default Results' I have 'Folders' checked (I also have Applications checked as well). Additionally, the folders I am searching for are under the 'Search Scope' of a folder pathway I've defined. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Being unable to search for folders has been hindering my productivity in a major way! Life is much easier when Alfred can search my folders too. Cheers!
  16. I'd like to create a text triggered short-cut to go to a folder within Alfred, so that if I enter "/MyTrigger" into Alfred, it's the same as typing "/Users/Me/Documents/My Triggered Folder." I don't want to set a hot-key since I'd be navigating within that folder. E.g., I might enter "/MyTrigger/File I Want" or "MyTrigger/Sub Folder." Is this possible?
  17. Hi - I want to use Alfred to quickly access a folder, but many of my folders have fairly generic names like "Notes" or "Resources" and they don't come up in the top however-many file search results. Is there a way to limit a search to folders, or to raise the priority of folders in the list of search results? Thanks! Best, Chris
  18. Hi everyone, I love Alfred and Transmits Disk feature, but can't seem to get them to play nicely with each other. My company stores its client files on an FTP that I connect to remotely. Transmit Disk feature allows me to mount this ftp as a "drive". What I'd like to be able to do is search this "drive" for client and project folders, enabling me to get to what I need to work on fast! The folder structure is \Clients\<Client Name>\<Project Number> - <Project Name>\ Ultimately I'd like to be able to use fuzzy searching to search by client name, project number or project name and open the respective client or project folder. I've tried adding the "\Clients" folder under Features\Default Results: Search Scope, and also checked "Folders" under Extras. Any suggestions? Much thanks!
  19. Hi! I'm an alfred noob, and not much of a programmer - so I was wondering if someone could help. I'm looking for a way to search top level folders in a specific directory only - and exclude its children - I'm guessing with a script filter. Context - We do a lot of development locally and I am often having to type in http://localhost/foldername to open the local instance of a website. Because there are so many its a bit of a pain in the proverbial. I've managed to cobble together a script that searches my localhost folder and opens the folder name (as $filename) at http://localhost/$filename I'm using the file filter, which returns all the sub folders in my localhost - I'm guessing I need to write a script filter that ignores sub folders and only looks for top-level directories in the localhost directory. thanks!
  20. Apologies if this is so trivial but I'm going nuts with this little problem of mine. First and foremost I am using Alfred because of RSI (wrist, elbow) so I'm trying to use my mouse as little as I can. I have tried to create a workflow to call certain folders which I often use and to display their contents, and it's not happening As an example in the workflow I've created there is the File Filter, with a keyword "docs". In Search Scope I've dragged my Documents Folder. In the workflow I've then connected it to "Reveal in Finder". When I launch Alfred and type "docs" and then enter I just get a blank icon that does not launch the finder, nor does it display any of the contents of the Documents folder. I've obviously made a (stupid) mistake somewhere... What? Where? Appreciate your help Paul
  21. I've got some iTunes playlist folders with the same name as playlists. They appear as playlists in Alfred rather than folders though. Could a different icon be used for them?
  22. I work on a Mac in a Windows dominated work place and often have to send links to files and folders on network drives to other users using Windows PC. Is there any way to create a workflow that copies the path to the folder and magically transforms it into a link that a Windows based user can click on?
  23. I often find that application cleaner (such as AppCleaner) do not remove all the files of one application when trying to remove them. So I decided to create a workflow that would search in a few folders /Library/Logs, /Library/Preferences, Users/Shared, ~/Library/Saved Applications States, to find any left files/folders (The workflow is a "File filter" action + a "Reveal file in Finder" action). Unfortunately, it does not work. I wanted to know if this is because Alfred doesn't index these files, something I would totally understand.
  24. Can I customize the folders I can move my folders/files to? Because I just used the "move to..." feature (via a file selection) and I discovered 3 folders I don't think I set them to be destination folders. Is it a bug or one more hidden gem the Alfred support will make me discover?
  25. Let say I am in the Alfred's actions list with one file selected and I want to go back to the navigation folder. Hint: I don't want to do the whole navigation again
