  1. This workflow starts with a keyword input and save the query as a variable named "amount". I want to use this variable inside a NSAppleScript later in the same process. I've tried set theAmount to (system attribute "amount") But it doesn't get this variable.
  2. mac os 10.14.5 alfred 4.0.3 All removal operations in the software will report errors couldn't be moved to the trash.
  3. Using Spotlight i can search for .rpd files, but Alfred can't seem to find them. I have added rpd under advanced in the Default Results tab in Alfred without luck. Do any of you know what is wrong?
  4. I have recently joined this community and I was trying to find a todoist app workflow to search inside the app content, I am really satisfied with its app shortcut to add tasks and I don't want to replace it with alfred (my projects have emojis and it would be tedious as I can't use snippets on Alfred's search). There are Some workflows which can be used to create and check tasks but I consider it miscellaneous But as I want alfred a global searcher I want a workflow which just searches inside the app, I don't think the API token would be necessary is there a tutorial for ea
  5. Not sure what I am doing wrong but my "iTunes" mini player does not do anything when it is open. I can go through the playlists, albums, artists but will not play anything when they are selected.
  6. For some reason a few days ago my MacBook decided to poop out and freeze on boot. This forced me to reset my whole Mac back to its factory settings which obviously lost all of my stuff on it. Now that I have most of what is back I went to Alfred to try to put my workflows back on and the power pack wasn't their (again obvious). So when I checked my email and documents there was nothing I can't find my receipt or anything, I might be able to find something else if I knew what to look for or where to look for it. Please help I don't want to have to buy it all over again.
  7. Hello! This makes me feela a tiny bit stupid, but I struggle with what do to when I get to the update-screen. >.< Is there a button I should see? How do I get Alfred to download this update? I attach a screenshot, sorry for the unsharp fuzz. I'm on version 3.8 [959] on High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G5019) on a 13" MBP Very thankful for any help!
  8. Hello, I just upgraded to Alfred 3, and was able to sync my preferences on my first Mac (10.14) without a hitch. However, when I try to set the sync folder on the second Mac (also 10.14), the folder in Dropbox where my preferences are located is unselectable -- it is greyed out. The folder name is "apps." Again, I tried syncing on my second Mac, but the folder was greyed out. I set it up on my first Mac with no problems, but then was still unable to sync with my second Mac because the folder in not selectable. Any ideas why I would be able to sync on one but not the other?
  9. I'm trying to install this chrome history workflow (https://github.com/tupton/alfred-chrome-history), but I'm not versed in terminal or coding at all. Can anyone further dumb-down the FROM SOURCE section of this repo for me to understand? Much appreciated.
  10. 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! ?
  11. It would be great when you say that "we have over a dozen examples and over 40 templates" (or words to that effect) if you appended that webpage (Alfred Blog > Tips and Tricks > Learn to Create Workflows with Alfred's Built-In Examples) with a follow-on webpage and link with a list of those examples and templates that you speak of, serving as a repository for us to go to for a one stop place to download from.
  12. Once upon a time, I was able to change the color of text selection in custom themes. Fn key seems to show selected text in theme window; however, the option to change color remains on 'font color'. Am I missing something here?
  13. Can I activate Powerpack on both home and work computers with a single purchase? I can see the advantages of Powerpack, but I don't want to make separate purchases and my workplace won't pay for activating Powerpack. Thank you.
  14. Hi, I'm trying to make a workflow that does the below but I am not sure how to achieve it. In short, I want to be able to add some text in Alfred and have it append this to a particular file. I'm just trying to make it easier to keep a project log. For this example, let's say that I have two projects that I am working on. Let's call the projects "apples" and "oranges". I'd like to be able to: Type 'log' into Alfred Enter a keyword to specify which project the entry relates to (e.g. "app" or "ora"). Then type some text. W
  15. I love having some kind of consistency in whatever I am doing. I recently wrote a wiki article about my process I go through when making and releasing workflows step by step. Currently this includes Go workflows I write with AwGo library and my non Go workflows I write that I publish in small workflows repo. I really hope that this article will be helpful and I am very open and eager to receive thoughts and feedback on it. Thank you. ? Read the article
  16. I've managed various Facebook pages over the years (currently 3), and lately I've been wishing more and more to do some of that management via Alfred. This week I started hacking on it a bit, but I decided to work on a personal Facebook workflow first to get the feel for working with the Graph API, and then moving on to one for page management. I wanted to post about it here, just to see (a) if there was much interest in it besides for my own usage, (b) if so, what Facebooky things do you wish you could do via Alfred, either personal or page related? What's working now
  17. Hey Forum, I use Alfred's clipboard manager ~100 times per day, often in a terminal window. However I am using iTerm2's hotkey (⌥<Space>) window which opens the terminal as an overlay. Unfortunately, triggering the clipboard manager (⌥⌘C) causes the hotkey window to close. Thus, in order to paste several entries I paste one into the terminal then paste the next one into another application effectively moving it to the top of the clipboard stack and repeat. It would be excellent if it was possible to do one of the following: shuffle the clipboard (make the ne
  18. I don't know AppleScript myself, which is why I came here to ask for help. The workflow works like this. Keyboard shortcut > run usr/bin/osascript > play sound this is the code inside the script (I didn't write it myself, found it on apple support forums and slightly modified it): tell application "System Preferences" reveal pane id "com.apple.preference.keyboard" tell application "System Events" tell process "System Preferences" tell window "Keyboard" tell tab group 1 click radio but
  19. Hello, Maybe I missed something, but here is what I would love to see. Problem As I have several workflows installed, it gets more and more difficult to master them all. I simply do not remember all the possibilities offered by each of them. I always feel like I am missing lots of useful features. Suggested solution I believe it would be nice if Alfred could auto-build up a help feature for those workflows that I have customized and installed. How ? I'm thinking about typing a keyword like "workflows" in order to get a list of all
  20. The help pages on AlfredApp.com are very … err… helpful, and it would be great if it were possible to link to subsections within all of them, rather than only to the page itself. For example, the File Search page has anchors for its various subsections, so you can link directly to "File Search", "File Navigation" etc., but the Using Variables in Workflows page doesn't. The Workflow Environment Variable panel is (as previously mentioned) a mystery to a lot of users. Rather than having to explain it in every README to avoid the inevitable "how do I set these variables?"
  21. Is it possible to configure Alfred to show the results ordered by type? For a given search term I would need to have the applications on the top, then contacts, bookmarks, documents and so on. Thanks. Massimiliano.
  22. Recently I have been really enjoying programming workflows in Go using @deanishe incredible AwGo library. So I decided to write an article on how anyone can start building things with Go by going through building a complete and working workflow from scratch. You can read the article here. I would really love to hear your thoughts on it. ? It is quite long in hindsight but I wanted to be as clear as I can be so anyone can follow along. I also leave some personal tips of my own that I use to help me develop workflows faster.
  23. Ask Create Share This workflow lets you open any web submission on the Internet. Such as quickly making a Reddit post to some subreddit, creating a new GitHub repo. Making a post on stack exchange forum and more. The list of web submissions is user curated and can be extended here. For more information, on how you can use the workflow, you can read the GitHub readme. Code | Download
  24. I'm working on a script to play music using MPD. I want to list available albums and have Alfred filter them rather than doing the filtering myself in a script filter. But when I check the "Alfred filters results" check box, the result is an empty list regardless of what I type: If, on the other hand, I uncheck that box, I get a list of albums as expected, but I can't type to filter them: Here's my code, in Python. It's really not very complicated: from __future__ import unicode_literals from __future__ import print_function import json import os import
  25. Huge thank you to Vitor without whom this workflow wouldn't exist : You can download it from here. Or you can view the GitHub page of it with more descriptions of it. Essentially this is an Alfred wrapper over a note taking project I am making and maintaining. It allows you to instantly visit any mind map that I have made. I have been working on this project for the past month and will be updating and maintaining it with more and more quality content as time passes. To get a better sense of what kind of mind maps do exist out there, try out searching for 'alfred'
