The most current version can now be found on GitHub with very special thanks to xilopaint for continuing and modernizing the original workflow. GitHub Download. Below are my older versions which I will now leave AS-IS for reference: DOWNLOAD (For Alfred 2) DOWNLOAD (For Alfred 3) For those that need to see/copy info from the system. Just open Alfred and type "about" To RESET the workflow type "xabout" FN+ENTER will copy the selected entry to the clipboard. SHIFT+ENTER will paste selected entry to front most app. CTRL+ENTER will take you to Apple's support website (based on your hardware). OPT+ENTER will take you to Apple's hardware specifications website (based on your hardware). January 11, 2018: Updated the 'HardwareIcons.xml' to include all new hardware found/referenced for icons of machines. This brings the hardware list up to date as of macOS 10.13.2 (17C205) This is just for Alfred 3 and the new filename is "AboutThisMac_2018.alfredworkflow", so make sure you are running the latest. This is a rather big update in terms of hardware icon support and I apologize for not doing it sooner folks! September 26, 2017: Added icon and updated script for macOS High Sierra. February 1, 2017: Added Macmini7,1 to xml for icon support. August 15, 2016: Added icon and updated script for macOS Sierra. Made a new version for Alfred 3 removing older Operating Systems to fall in line with what Alfred 3 supports. I am leaving the Alfred 2 version alone for those who still want to use it, but, it does not support macOS Sierra. June 3, 2014: Added Yosemite Icon (also updated script) for those using the Developer Previews so the System Version line shows the correct image. July 23, 2013: Added Mavericks Icon (also updated script) for those using the Developer Previews so the System Version line shows the correct image. July 9, 2013: I found an error in a line of my workflow which on most systems is a lenient one, but on some results in the Human Readable Machine in line 1 of the results to simply not show up. The error also made the links to the support site and hardware specs site not function correctly. I have corrected this line in the workflow. PLEASE NOTE: On SOME systems, and even on the current build of Mavericks, the plist file the workflow reads from is protected in a slightly different way. This means the permissions need to be changed on the plist. I have included the Terminal instructions in the 'readme' tab of the Workflow. To access this, load Alfred Preferences, Double Click on the Workflow in the left sidebar "About This Mac", and in the window that pops up, click the Readme tab ... and read! May 16, 2013: Added Model Identifier beside system name in top row. SO for MY system it now shows "iMac 27-inch, Mid 2011 (iMac12,2)" April 17, 2013 : Fixed a couple minor issues with incorrect selectors in the script. Serial number should show now, and 'GB' after memory size will show again. Added a system check for those that have multiple computers accessing one workflow folder (thanks DJay for pointing out that not everyone has only one computer). Removed randomUID generator for items, as the latest version of Alfred2 makes it possible to NOT have to specify unique IDs. SO, if you want an ordered list, please update Alfred to 2.0.3+
It would be a great convenience if Alfred could automatically fill in some data every time I create a blank workflow. For example, a setting in Alfred that would auto-fill any new workflow with the following info: Bundle Id: tylereich. Created By: Tyler Eich The same principal applies to workflow objects. When working with a script object, I manually deselect every escaping choice except 'Double quotes' and 'Backslashes'. It would be great if Alfred remembered what options I picked last time (language and escaping) and defaulted to those for every new object until I made another change. It's a small enhancement, but if you make a lot of workflows, it could save you a lot of time.
