  1. Introduction Have you ever needed that specific app icon to use in your review? Get App Icon workflow comes to help! Open up Alfred, type 'icon' and app's name. If it one installed in your macOS, you should find it in the list. Press Enter and the icon will await on your Desktop. What if that's the app for iPhone or iPad (or just app from Mac App Store)? Just use the 'online' option to search and download. Download from Packal → link direct download → link Screenshots http://i.imgur.com/QLa4WD5m.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/8MUWUrkm.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/JhJJfhJm.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/Muq658Jm.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/Xbowu4gm.png How it works? To invoke Get App Icon workflow: use the icon keyword which will list all available in /Application folder apps; at top of results there is option to switch to online (App Store / Mac App Store) search that will search for typed app name; use File Action Extract app icon on chosen app on your Mac. The workflow behaves as follow: when used with local application it converts app’s icon in .icns format into .png using the biggest icon size (which is usually 1024 × 1024 or 512 × 512 px) and save it into Desktop folder; when used with online application it downloads its icon in .png format (please read Tips also for further information). Requirements installed Python version 3 installed Pillow library for Python 3 Changelist: 2.2: added workflow's description country code and limit are set as Environment Variables, so there is no need to edit files, just change them in Workflow Environment Variables window bug fixes 2.1: bug fixes 2.0: action rewritten to use Python3 1.5: initial public release

Thanks.
  3. I am working on a workflow that allows users to search through a list of Unicode icons. The most likely results are then returned to Alfred so that they may be displayed. The problem I am having is figuring out how to display the Unicode icons in Alfred. For instance, I see the following: When I return this JSON [ { uid: '1F5B1', title: 'computer mouse', subtitle: '1F5B1', arg: '1F5B1', autocomplete: 'computer mouse', icon: '🖱️' }, { uid: '1F5A8', title: 'printer', subtitle: '1F5A8', arg: '1F5A8', autocomplete: 'printer', icon: '🖨️' }, { uid: '1F50B', title: 'battery', subtitle: '1F50B', arg: '1F50B', autocomplete: 'battery', icon: '🔋' }, { uid: '2328', title: 'keyboard', subtitle: '2328', arg: '2328', autocomplete: 'keyboard', icon: '⌨️' } ] So my question is, how do I display the unicode icon in Alfred? Thank you in advance!
  4. 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
  5. Hi everyone, Here's a very small workflow to convert a (lovely) PNG image to a (lovely) ICNS icon file (that you can use for your node.js app, for example). Import the workflow from -> the github repository Make a (lovely) 1024x1024 PNG image, Select it in the Finder, Hit CMD + ALT + CTRL + i (like "Image") Et voilà! You can also use the bash script, with more options (png2icns.sh). Enjoy!
  6. Hi fellow Alfred lovers! I'm trying to make Alfred more personal. Is there any possibility to add Dummy ttext when Alfred is oppened (f.e. link in Spotlight, there's text "Spotlight search")? Also, is there possibility to change Alfred icon in Alfred's search bar or change it's possition as well?
  7. Hello everyone, I have a problem - it looks as follows: It's literally driving me insane. Where can I find the item for the alfred preferences, so that I can exchange it? It doesn't seem to be inside alfred.app - I've even considered searching for kind:image and checking every single image by hand. >.< Thank you in advance.
  8. Hello. When I create icons for my workflows, I resize them and optimize through tinypng.org according to Andrew's advice. But I've noticed that when I drop an icon into workflow details dropdown or into some object (for example, Script Filter) configurator, Alfred modifies the icon. And the modified icon has a much larger size. More than ten times larger. The size is even larger than the icon had before optimizing. I wonder why does Alfred do it? And if Alfred does it, maybe it is pointless to optimize icons?
  9. Is there a way to make notifications use the keyword icon instead of the workflow icon?
  10. Hi, Sorry for the stupid question. Where can i set icons? where can i choose the “default” icons? is there a set?
  11. Hi, I just made a flat icon for Alfred. Alfred developers can use it for the next version so that it looks nice on OSX Yosemite. Let me know what you think. Illustrator file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l0zp9abu8gdfl55/v1.ai?dl=0 - Dorian
  12. It would be very interesting to be able to use an URL in the icon parameter and fetch it asynchronously without slowing down the Feedback. Today we need to fetch/save the images and this considerably slowing the process because it's synchronous. Something like this would be neat: <?xml version="1.0"?> <items> <item uid="rdioartist" arg="r96664" valid="yes" autocomplete="Incubus"> <title>Incubus</title> <subtitle>Artist</subtitle> <icon type="url">http://blablabla.com/rdio-artist.png</icon> </item> </items>
  13. Hello! I've been having an issue where the menu bar icon is re-appearing every time I update. I disable the icon in the preferences, but with each update it seems to come back and I have to repeat that setting. It also forgets the "Save position when dragging Alfred main window" option. OS X version: 10.9.3 Alfred version: 2.3 (264) Cheers!
  14. I am working on a workflow for applications and I was wondering what would be the easiest way (most efficient) to show the app's icon in the results? IE: When I type ".app" and then the name of the application I want to check versioning on, it shows the above so far ... but I'd like to show the icon of the app beside ... like, where an icon goes normally.
  15. I made a workflow to search for movie titles and I really would like to add the movie covers as icon. Since Alfred does not accept URLs to an image as icon I have to download the covers and save them to disc before I can show them. That’s a slow solution. Furthermore the covers are distorted to a square. That’s not nice. I think I’m not the only one who wants asynchronously loaded images (show the results at once and add the images when they are loaded) from an URL for showing them (undistorted) in result lists. I found some questions regarding that issue in the forum. Are there plans to implement that to Alfred? It would be a great help to make wonderful and visually appealing workflows.
  16. I noticed that in OS X 10.9 Mavericks, notifications can use custom icons. iTunes 11.1.2 does this when sending 'Now Playing' notifications, using the album artwork as the primary image. It would be great if workflows could specify custom icons to use in a notification. For example, my Colors workflow could display an image of the color that has been copied.
  17. To me, adding workflows's icons by drag and drop is the only painful thing about Alfred but a really irritating one (Any other Alfred's feature is so well executed you become easily irritated when you find one that is just ok ). Please let us add icons via a dialog box (i.e: one click on the empty box opening a dialog box). Thank you
  18. Hey there, I recognized that since I use 1Password V4, the Icons in the Search are not shown. Everything else is working fine and as expected. Of course 1Password 4 is in a beta, but I'm sure you guys will adapt this soon. Thanks for your great work. Regards, DJay
  19. I would absolutely LOVE if someone could make this in a Alfred workflow, with the ability to automatically apply the included mask. Somebody up for it? Instantly grab a high-res icon for any iOS app
  20. Currently, Alfred's file buffer uses a set icon size instead of matching the size of result icons. For the visually impaired (or just plain picky, like me ) user where a larger icon is needed, a dynamic size may be better. Finally, for a buffer containing more icons than Alfred is wide: the latest icon should align right, and the icon at the farthest left should be gradually faded out, to indicate there are more behind it. An ellipsis of sorts. Currently, the only way I know Alfred has more files in his buffer is because of the whitespace at the far right, a result of the buffer matching my window width. Cheers
  21. This workflow extract & save icon from any OS X apps to your Desktop. Just type icon and choose the app. By default it saves icon in 512px and PNG. Feel free to change this parameters. If you want to save max resolution pictures just delete this line from the script: --resampleHeightWidthMax 512 Based on a bash code from Brett Terpstra. Alfred 2 theme by @egla. Enjoy! http://cl.ly/3c2h0S0t1I3K
  22. 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 aren't the same when in list view or icon view! That's because in list view, icons are tiny and thus would not look great with a big resolution icon File action on ".icns" files Keyword "selficon" for currently select file in finder Download: http://d.pr/f/mPRy
  23. Tidy up LaunchPad in Mountain Lion(Link, Download) Usage tdl appname :: Remove app icon from LaunchPad Mountain Lion's Launchpad is pretty good but it's still hard to get something out of it after you put it in if you didn't get it at the Mac App Store. If Launchpad Control is overkill for you, this might help. References Tidy up lanchpad in Mountain Lion(Laine lee) Back To The Mac Blog- OS X 런치패드에서 사용자가 원치않는 프로그램 아이콘을 손쉽고 간편하게 감출 수 있는 방법 Icon : Launch Pad(NoSmokingBandit) Version History 1.2 - March 30, 2013 Add help item Sort app names alphabetically 1.1 - March 30, 2013 Fix a problem of filename with korean encoding1.0 - March 30, 2013 Initial release
  24. Would it be possible to define a standard size to display for the icon in the results? Currently, when cycling the "Result Padding", the icon sizes change from 28, 30, 32, 34 and 36px. This makes certain icons look like complete garbage ... especially if the icons contain single pixel lines. The idea, is that if an icns/tiff/jpg/pdf IS or CONTAINS a certain size, Alfred will honour it in the results. So, if for some reason I wish to have my results icons displayed at 16px, regardless of padding or font height with results, the icon will always show centered at 16px in the image results area. Alternately, if I wish to have my icon show at 64px, and have the text to the right of it smaller, the text results would be centered in it's area. I do realize that the theming/appearance area of Alfred2 is a work in progress but this has been bugging me as a visual type person who is in love with 'pixel perfectness'
  25. i noticed that the Alfred 2 Release Candidate's Icon looked odd against a dark background. Inside the .icns file, I found that the smaller icons have a weird gray pixel border around the edges of the hat. Check it out: Alfred v2.0 (165) on OS X 10.8.2. Replicated: yes
