  1. I use Alfred for searching in iTunes Store but I can't find a custom search for Apple Music catalog, any tips?
  2. I was ecstatic when I found a workflow to add the currently playing track any playlist of my choice. So fast and efficient! But, alas, the workflows out there do not seem to work with Apple Music. I have looked at AppleScript API for iTunes (god I hate AS) and the small proof of concepts I have made have failed miserably. Has anybody gotten close to doing this? I am so sick of adding songs to playlists like a mere mortal! Thanks! -Christian
  3. Control iTunes and Spotify using the same global hotkeys with this Alfred workflow. Play magically knows which player you're currently using and sends the command to the right place. Download — stable version. The source code is available here: https://github.com/pstadler/alfred-play
  4. I am using the 'Play song' from iTunes as a workflow. The debugger shows" I know this is an issue with Mojave and the new 'sandbox' security bubble they put around interacting with the OS; I just don't know how to give it access. Alfred is already enabled in the seurity section. Any thoughts?
  5. Just finished a quick workflow to rate the currently playing track in iTunes. Simple usage, type "rate x" where x is the star rating you want assigned to the track. EDIT: Now supports much better reliability, 1/2 stars, two panel display, and keyboard shortcuts. Latest version can be found here: http://d.pr/f/Oysk or https://github.com/dklem/Alfred2-Rate-iTunes-Track Screenshots:
  6. Hello, powerpack is a must have! I listen music in iTunes every day and there are some days when i just turning on random mode through all songs in my itunes library. But sadly there are no such mode in itunes mini player, so i must go into itunes and enable random mode (shuffle) again (because alfred somehow disables it). So i have a two questions: 1. Are there any possibility to implement shuffle mode for currently selected playing unit (artist, album or all songs)? 2. Are there any hope to get "all songs" playing unit support (just like in itunes)? Thanks!
  7. As of iTunes 12.2 you can now favorite any track in addition to rating it (in iTunes menus, this is called 'Love'). It would be great if the iTunes Mini Player had a keyboard shortcut to favorite/unfavorite the currently playing track as well showing the current status. Additionally, it would also be fantastic if the mini player could be able access iTunes' 'Up Next' feature. I.e. let me look at what tracks are coming up next in the current playlist without having to switch to iTunes. Regards, Keith
  8. Hi all, I've got a fresh install of Yosemite, with iTunes 12.2 and the latest alfred. Trying to use the mini player and when I bring it up it says "Invalid iTunes XML path, check path in Alfred's iTunes Preferences" When i got there, and try to use the "find" in iTunes settings > Advanced, it doesn't find anything. Is it because I have no downloaded music? Is it something to do with iTunes 12.2? Any suggestions?
  9. There's an old workflow that stopped working with the jump to Ruby 2.0, I'd like to see this functionality added to the Alfred's iTunes Mini Player. https://github.com/edc1591/alfred-up-next
  10. I feel like I'm losing my mind: I can't figure out how to queue up an entire album from the mini player. Whenever I search albums, they show up but my only option is to select them, which dives into the album and only allows me to select a single song. Even if I pick the first track in the album, it stops playing after it finishes. Can someone PLEASE help?
  11. Whenever I select a track to play in the Mini Player, iTunes launches and plays the track. Is that how it's supposed to be, and if not, how can I stop it happening? This happens when I open Mini Player and press enter when a track is selected, or click on Mini Player's play icon.
  12. Introduction With the introduction of Alfred v2.0, the built-in iTunes mini player is now the only way to interact with my iTunes library in Alfred. However, I would prefer to quickly search for and play songs without entering the mini player first. Therefore, I created Play Song—a workflow designed to make playing songs in iTunes extremely quick and convenient. Download Download Play Song (latest) Usage Play Song enables five keywords which allow you to search for and play songs in your iTunes library. In order for Play Song to function properly, it requires access to assistive devices. You can enable this for Alfred via the Security & Privacy pane of System Preferences. Playing a song To play an individual song, use the playsong keyword. Songs whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing a song from the list will play that song once. Playing an album To play all songs from a particular album, use the playalbum keyword. Albums whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing an album from the list will play all songs from that album (ordered by track number). Playing an artist To play all songs by a particular artist, use the playartist keyword. Artists whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing a artist from the list will play all songs by that artist (grouped by album). Playing a genre To play all songs within a particular genre, use the playgenre keyword. Genres whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing a genre from the list will play all songs within that genre (grouped by artist). Playing a playlist To play all songs within a particular playlist, use the playplaylist keyword. Non-empty playlists whose names match your query will populate the list of results. Choosing a playlist from the list will play all songs within that playlist (according to playlist order). Support If you have a bug to report or a feature to request, please submit an issue on GitHub. Release Notes Release notes for the workflow are also available on GitHub.
  13. DJ Pedro - Create iTunes playlist based on Last.fm similar artists (Updated 10/11/2015 - Fix for broken Last.fm API links) This workflow uses the Last.fm API for "similar artists" to create and play a playlist based on either the artist of the currently playing song or an artist searched for within the local iTunes Library. The workflow does not require that you use Last.fm, it only pulls information from their database using their API. (i.e., no scrobbling required.) DJ Pedro now lives on the wonderful Packal repository. The best reason for you to get this version is that Packal will handle tracking any future updates so you no longer need to watch this thread. Get the Packal version here The workflow is triggered by a hotkey or the keyword "dj", and if an argument is added the workflow searches your iTunes library for artists that match the query. NEW: I added a couple Alfred Remote triggers to the workflow, the best one allows you to create a DJ Pedro playlist from anywhere in your house via the currently playing iTunes track. This is a feature I have wanted since originally creating the workflow. :-) You can add the individual trigger(s) to your own custom Remote page or use the DJ Pedro Remote Page. It's fairly minimal at the moment, but I'm considering adding a Favorites feature since we can't yet type directly into an Alfred window via the remote. NEW: If you use my Last.fm and/or Discogs workflows you can now trigger those from results in DJ Pedro's Suggested Artist list using modifier keys. I tend to think that's pretty sweet. Settings for the workflow can be modified by triggering the "djprefs" script filter. Available modifications are: Playlist name Number of tracks in the created playlist Search limit for 'similar artists' the workflow requests from Last.fm. Maximum tracks per artist added to the playlist. Enable/disable the notification that lists any artists suggested by Last.fm that were not found in your Library. Credits/Acknowledgments: Much of the script for displaying artists and their artwork was borrowed from the great "Play Song" workflow, by "caleb531", which you should download if you don't have it yet. Additional scripting was improved by using the qWorkflow library developed by "ursanrazvan". Yes, DJ Pedro is named after our cat. Notes: This workflow creates a folder in your iTunes folder called "Alfred Album Artwork" for easy access to album artwork icons. This folder should be extremely small and is easily deleted if you delete the workflow. Known/Possible Issues: Because of the way iTunes 11 handles playlists, there's a pause/un-pause coded into DJ Pedro at the start of playback. If Apple ever provides a better way to deal with Up Next, besides GUI scripting, I'll update this. I'm an amateur coder, so please be kind to my messy code, etc. Constructive criticism is greatly appreciated! I hope this workflow helps you enjoy your music a little bit more.
  14. Hey there! How can I fix this issue with a mini player? Have a look here screenshot. http://j.mp/2tcLtod Thanks in advance!
  15. Hi there, The iTunes "next track" somehow doesn't work on my laptop using 10.11 (El CApitan) The pause/play and previous track works, but the "next track" fails to work when I have a Genius playlist playing. Where do I start to find the problem??
  16. I have Powerpack, but I can find nothing on my iPhone relative to iTunes Mini. I can open iTunes from my iPhone using Alfred, but I can do nothing with it. No ability to change tunes, adjust volumes, rate music, find movies/music... Any help would be groovy!
  17. Hello Has anyone had / solved this problem: With Alfred 3 running, pressing the space bar (with iTunes as the active window) stops the track as usual, but pressing it again (which normally starts the track) offers to delete the track (see the image). Without Alfred 3 running, iTunes returns to normal: space bar both stops and then starts tracks. I can't find any setting that should do this rather strange thing. Disabling all workflows makes no difference. Is this just a bug?
  18. Big fan of Apple Music (iTunes). Not a big fan of switching windows each time I feel the need to "Love" a song or add it to My Music. Is there not a workflow that accomplishes either of those tasks? Would someone be interested in creating one? Thanks for the help.
  19. Hi all, I've been getting lots of requests to update this workflow to make it compatible with Ruby >=2.0 which is what's been shipping with the past couple releases of macOS. Well, I took some time this week to finally do it and also added a few new features. Results will now show their album art, and the pairing process has been improved. You can also now search by artist name and album title. I've also renamed the workflow to iTunes DJ (reminiscent of the original queuing feature in iTunes). See the README on Github for more info and download links. ------------------------------------------- ORIGINAL POST ------------------------------------------- Hey Guys! Up Next is one of my favorite features of iTunes 11, but adding songs to it can be pretty tedious. That's what this workflow tries to fix. You can search for songs right in Alfred and quickly queue them to be played in iTunes! The source is available on Github. Feel free to fork it and submit pull requests. Here's a download of the workflow that you can import directly into Alfred. This workflow works similarly to the iOS Remote app. Because of this, it needs to be paired with iTunes before you can use it. To do that just follow these instructions: iTunes must be open to complete the pairing process. Invoke Alfred and type pair followed by a 4-digit numeric pin number and hit enter. Switch to iTunes and click the devices button in the top right. Then click on Alfred in the devices list and enter your 4-digit pin. Now you're all set to start queuing songs! Just type "next" followed by the name of a song and Alfred will search as you type. Then just hit enter on the song you'd like to queue. Enjoy! Known Issues: Searching can be slow for large libraries Can only search using song titles, not artists or albums

  21. This workflow allows you to switch between multiple Apple accounts quickly and easily in iTunes, App Store and iBooks. Also it can automatically turn on iTunes Match (iCloud Music Library) for you after switching (when available). Passwords will only be stored in Keychain.

Packal address http://www.packal.org/workflow/apple-account-switcher Note: Technically, it should be able to support all system languages. But if it doesn't work with your system language, please contact me.
  22. This is my first post and I hope this has not been answered 100 times already, but I didn't see an answer. Is there a way to write a workflow that will open iTunes, update all the apps that need updating, then close iTunes? Apps will update on my phone but in iTunes you must do it manually, or automate it yourself.
  23. When I use the Itunes Mini player to search or browse for songs the wrong song is often played, regardless of whether I use down key and hit enter on the list or use the option+number shortcut. Here's a video where I try and select History by Mos Def, but A History of Violence by Ice Cube (also on the list) plays instead. I've tried resetting music library and thumbnails. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9di1klz2ndciyrp/itunes.mov?dl=0
  24. Hi, Alfred's iTunes integration isn't doing anything for me: OK, so let's look... You can see in this screencast that the "Find" button doesn't do anything. I'll need to find that file myself. The problem is it doesn't exist: $ find ~ -name 'iTunes Library*' /Users/boneskull/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library Extras.itdb /Users/boneskull/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library Genius.itdb /Users/boneskull/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library.itl Of note, all of my music is in iTunes Match. Is there some way to create this file? - Mac OS 10.11.5 (15F34) - Alfred 3.0.2 (676) - iTunes
  25. I use the mini-player fairly frequently and would love to see it updated to include a button to "Love" a track (heart icon). This is a standard feature of iTunes now and other 3rd party controllers are including it, so seeing that ability in Alfred would be great.
