  1. This workflow searches Google Drive via the Google Drive File Stream app. Currently, Spotlight is the main method for searching but is unreliable. (It would be great to get some feedback on why this is.) As a backup, the user has the option to use a file index created by an included Ruby script to search - this is more reliable but also much slower. Feedback is welcome! http://www.packal.org/workflow/google-drive-search
  2. Google Docs in Chrome is my go to for all not taking and word processing. I am constantly opening new docs and spreadsheets. Being able to open a new google doc (or spreadsheet) from Alfred would be a huge benefit to me. There is a Chrome extension called G New Doc which attempts to do this with 2 clicks from Chrome but it no longer works. I have searched around for Google Docs commands for Alfred but have found little. I am sure that this would be incredible useful for many people. Any help would be much appreciated Thank you.
  3. Browse, search and open Google Drive files from within Alfred. Get the workflow from Packal or Github URL. This workflow searched your google drive and opens the files in your browser. They keyword is "d" (example d alfred). With enter you can open the entry in your default browser. You have to login (d > login) before you can use the workflow. The login uses OAuth, so you do not need to enter your credentials. Please leave issues if you encounter any problems or star this repo if you found it useful
  4. Hi, I just downloaded Google Drive File Stream but I can't search within my files with Alfred. I found this post that is pretty pessimist about this feature: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/drive/s8SGUGCNlOM Any workaround so far? Thanks!
  5. This is a simple workflow which basically starts and quits a bunch of Applications at once (can also be used to toggle single applications) It is easily customizable so you can delete the applications you don't use or add those you do. The idea is inspired by Dropbox Toggler by rosenkrieger. Please look into the Readme for credits and further instructions. Usage: a cloud - activates all applications q cloud - quits all applications t droplr - toggles droplr t db - toggles Dropbox t gd - toggles Google Drive Download: http://d.pr/f/vPqr Please note that this is my first workflow and I don't have much practice with Applescript. Feel free to change or improve this workflow.
  6. Short story, I backed up my Alfred workflows in my google drive, and now when I try to download them, they all come in form of zipped files. I've read here that you can convert the .alfredworkflow.zip file back into an .alfredworkflow file which I've managed to do but when I try to install the workflow, none of the workflows have their respective pictures saved (if I tried to do this manually for ~ 40 - 50 workflows, it would take ages). Any thoughts on how to easily fix this / automate this? I've tried writing a Python script but even using the subprocess module to run bash commands messes up the workflow when trying to zip the info.plist file. I'd greatly appreciate any thoughts on this and any ideas! Even after doing this and I try to install through info.alfredworkflow, it complains and gives a message "The workflow you are trying to import is invalid." I'm honestly not sure what to do at this point. import os import subprocess # SINGLE os.chdir("...") # change to directory that contains the .alfredworkflow.zip files for f in os.listdir(os.getcwd()): if len(f.split(".alfredworkflow.zip")) == 2: path = os.getcwd() + "/" + f subprocess.run(["unzip", path, "-d", os.getcwd() + "/" + f.split(".zip")[0]]) dirs = list(filter(os.path.isdir, os.listdir(os.getcwd()))) # ZIP for folder in dirs: if len(folder.split(".alfredworkflow")) == 2: path = os.getcwd() + "/" + folder + "/info.plist" subprocess.run(["zip", path + ".zip", path]) # RENAME for folder in dirs: if len(folder.split(".alfredworkflow")) == 2: path = os.getcwd() + "/" + folder + "/info.plist.zip" subprocess.run(["mv", path, os.getcwd() + "/" + folder + "/info.alfredworkflow"])
  7. Does anyone know how to create an account-specific URL for Google Drive? In the past, my Google Drive-related Alfred workflows relied on the following paths: Open Drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/account@gmail.com Search Drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/account@gmail.com/search?q={query} However, this approach seems to have stopped working a few weeks ago (at least, that's when I noticed it). Now, I just receive an error indicating that the URL was not found on the server. To be clear, you can still open and search Google Drive by using the number associated with the account - numbered from from zero and up based on the order in which you've logged in to them (e.g., https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2). However, I've never been a big fan of this approach because if you log in to your accounts in a different order, then the associated account numbers in the URL will change. For example, https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2 may become https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0. Oddly enough, this account-specific approach still seems to work for gmail. So, for example, the following paths still seem to work fine: Open Gmail: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/account@gmail.com Search Gmail: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/account@gmail.com/search?q={query} Are others noticing the same problem? I've tried logging in and out several times to make sure that I'm properly signed in to everything. I've also tried different browsers, but the problem with Google Drive appears to persist. I couldn't find much about this issue posted in this forum or others - like Stack Exchange - but I was hoping that someone with similar workflows might have some advice (or knowledge of whether Google is changing its approach). Thanks for any help you can lend!
  8. Has anybody found a good solution to search across multiple cloud platforms from within the Alfred search bar? I came across Findo today and like what it can do, but it would be so much better if we weren't forced to log into the chrome extension or website, but rather search from the Alfred search bar. Has anybody had a positive experience with any of these types of services? Thx
  9. I am running into a problem with the google drive workflow. When I try to search for a file (d "name of the file") it takes me to the sign up page and then a window says "Successfully connected to google drive" then takes me in a loop to again sign up and allow Alfred to access the drive. I have attached screenshots of the sequence (below) Can anyone help me with this? Thank you in advance!
  10. Hey guys, I'm pretty new to Alfred. I would like to create a workflow but before I go down the rabbit hole I want to ask if this is even possible: Open folder in Google Drive > Create a new folder (with a certain name) > Open that newly created folder > Create a new document (with a certain name) This is a workflow I need when producing new podcast episodes. I create a new folder called "Episode XX" inside of my episodes folder. Then, inside of that new folder I create a document called "Briefing Episode XX". If this is possible: Would you recommend to create something like that? I need it "only" once per week … but actually clicking through to the podcast folder is a pain in the a** already Thanks Katharina
  11. Greetings, Alfred Community, I use several cloud file sync apps like Dropbox, GDrive, Evernote, and Box.com. Most of these tools add a context menu to my desktop Finder window, allowing me to instantly share a file and copy the share URL to the clipboard. I love to use Alfred to FIND all those files quickly on my desktop, but it would be awesome to be able to copy a share URL right from Alfred instead of doing "Show in Finder" and right-clicking the context menu. First world problems, I know, but we're all about speed in here, and this would make many of us extra speedy.... Thanks for reading! Ted
  12. Hoping this is the right place to post. I've been searching everywhere (this site and the web) and while I'm sure someone has made a version of the workflow I need I'm just as certain I'm using the wrong search string. Why it's needed: I'm finding that the thing that's taking the most time in my weekly workflow is collecting images and screenshots, uploading them to my wordpress site, gathering the URLs for all the images, then pasting the URLs into the weekly shownotes for my podcast—shownotes that I have to upload to the podcast media host which then places them to all the destinations (including my wordpress site). I work in Markdown for speed and have managed to find a way to auto-code all of the links and notes I collect during the week from Google Sheets into my Shownotes Markdown Template, so that takes about 30 seconds to generate every Friday (down from it taking hours - so that's great). Gathering URLs for any and all images for the shownotes, though, takes For. Ever. What is needed: A workflow that would— go to a specific Google Drive* or Dropbox folder download (or otherwise "get") all the images in that folder put/move/upload/place those images into a specific wordpress.org/self-hosted WP site's media library provide me the URLs to those newly uploaded images I rather expected I'd be able to find, if not one complete workflow, at least a couple or several I could cobble together—but no luck, and my workflow building skills aren't up to speed yet. I'd managed to get a python script to work on my iPhone/Editorial app once — but not pulling from Google Drive and not with multiple images. Any ideas/guidance/links/tutorials = much appreciated! *(an assistant uses GD right now, but could use either)
  13. Many thanks to @rosenkrieger for the inspiration. Original thread http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1343-clouddrive-toggler/ *Also mentioned in the read me of the workflow. So what does this workflow do. Type a keyword and a "on", "sync" or "off" argument, which will toggle on/off the desired application. You can also toggle off all supported cloud drives by "clouds" and using an argument indicated above. I have chosen the "clouds" on action to NOT reopen Cyberduck and Fetch. This is purely a personal decision as I seldom have them open anyway. It would be easy to also add them to the "all clouds" on action should you wish to do so. Currently supports and works with the following providers. All were tested on my local machine. Version 1 - Amazon Cloud Drive http://www.amazon.com - BitTorrent Sync http://labs.bittorrent.com/experiments/sync.html - Box Sync http://box.com added 1/28/14 - Cloud http://getcloudapp.com - CloudMe https://www.cloudme.com - Copy https://www.copy.com - Cyberduck http://cyberduck.ch - Dropbox https://www.Dropbox.com - Dropbox Encore http://www.joyofmacs.com/software/dropboxencore/ - Dropzone http://aptonic.com/dropzone/ - Droplr https://droplr.com/‎ - Fetch http://fetchsoftworks.com - GoodSync http://www.goodsync.com - GoogleDrive https://drive.google.com/‎ - OwnCloud http://owncloud.org - Skitch http://evernote.com/skitch/ - SkyDrive https://skydrive.live.com/ - SpiderOak https://spideroak.com - SugarSync https://www.sugarsync.com - Syncplicity http://www.syncplicity.com - TeamDrive http://www.teamdrive.com - Tonido http://www.tonido.com - Wuala http://www.wuala.com - ZipCloud http://www.zipcloud.com -- Experimental Support - Ubuntu One https://one.ubuntu.com Special Note: For those using Dropbox Encore It is a very convoluted workflow to get things working properly. For example if Dropbox (Primary) is not running and Dropbox Encore is running. You wish to START Dropbox. --You first have to stop Dropbox Encore and then start Dropbox, then you restart Dropbox Encore. The scripts used attempt to automate this for you. However you should always keep an eye on which is running etc. It is recommended to have one of the two occurrences of Dropbox using the blue icons and the other using the dark colors * Disclaimer added 6/15/2013 @ 1600 EDT, please see the workflow read me section. ​* Clarification * I would like to note that the workflow tries to make things as simple as possible. Therefore it does not try to check if you actually have the desired app on your system. It will happily try to run the script even if it is not presently installed. Therefore you should get the standard Mac dialogue box asking where the app is if you do not have it installed. This should serve to indicate you have yet to install the app. Download link to my expanded version Version 1 : http://bit.ly/14NGdTn Version 2 : http://bit.ly/1bOpB2E Edit : New link as old was broken Edit : Add note about new argument "sync" 01/27/14 Edit : Added Box Sync and made preliminary changes for SkyDrive's upcoming rebranding, added version number for tracking changes. 01/28/14
  14. I used a personal Gmail account and feed my work email account into it. That's where I check all my email, as I have work and personal email in one spot. Lately, my students have been submitting documents to me in Google Drive (used to be Google Documents). I can only view my students' materials in my work Google account - unlike the email, I can't feed the Drive documents into my personal account. Unfortunately, my school moved to a variant of Google, and Google does not permit easy switching between the two. To keep from multistep logging out/logging in every time I move from email to Drive, I keep my personal Google account open in Firefox and my work account open in Chrome. I know that I can set up Alfred to simply open up either the Firefox or the Chrome browser, but Alfred is supposed to be able to do things such as search Google Drive for a specific document. Is there a way for my to specify that when I want to search for something in the Google Drive, I want to use Chrome, and for everything else, including email, I want Firefox as the default? --Susan
  15. I currently use Found ( https://www.foundapp.com/ ) to search and easily open Google Drive documents in the browser. I would like to use Alfred instead to open Google Drive documents in the browser. I know I can install the official Google Drive Mac app and have it search that folder and launch the file which then opens the file in the web browser. However, I do not want to sync all other files in my Google Drive (like PDFs, images, etc) to my Mac since I already use Insync to do that. I can search for my Google Drive files inside my Insync folder, but that will just launch the Mac app instead of opening the file in the web browser. I'm looking for a live search of Google Drive directly in Alfred and selecting the file in the list opens it in the web browser view.
