  2. Update (20-05-2022): Now also works with Multi-Markdown, and Latex citation syntax. Wikilinks and tags are supported as well. --- This is a citation picker for academics that write in markdown. I am proud to say that this is the most performant and most feature-rich citation picker that I know of! 💪 Inserts Pandoc Citation Syntax ("[@citekey]"). Works with page numbers & multiple citations. works systemwide, in case you also work in another Markdown app. smart search: search for citekeys, authors, title, publication, keywords (tags), include/exclude authors in et al, tab-completion, ... feature-rich: paste single-entry bibliographies, remove entries from your library without opening a reference management app, open URLs, open or create literature notes, search for .csl files online... Obsidian integration: When located in an Obsidian vault, literature notes will automatically be opened/created in Obsidian. (Otherwise, they will be opened in the default app for markdown files.) very performant: considerably quicker than other citation pickers (~200ms to fully reload a library with ~4000 entries on my machine) easy installation: no dependencies, no required plugins, no setup (other than entering the path to your .bib file, of course). ➡️ https://github.com/chrisgrieser/alfred-bibtex-citation-picker
  3. Beta: 4.1 for Alfred 4 First update for Alfred 4. Note that the BBCode keyword was not updated yet (may be removed after all). Download About QuickCursor Altough I didn’t use QuickCursor because it was already unavailable due OSX sandbox, I find myself every now and then needing something like it. Overview You start typing in one application (e.g. a forum post, an email or a script in Apple Editor) then you realize you need a better editor or just want to type using your default text editor. The common thing to do is select the text, copy it to the clipboard, open the text Editor, start a New Document then paste the content. After done you have to select the text, copy it to the clipboard then bring the initial application and finally paste the new content. It’s not that hard but it can be faster... Usage in the initial application optionally select some text bring Alfred and type the keyword editwith now select your text editor: just start typing to find it and hit return key the editor will be opened with the text you have selected initially or blank if there was no text initially after writing, bring Alfred and type the keyword pasteback (the workflow will select the text automatically) the previous application will be displayed and the text will be pasted back In addition, the workflow saves the last used text editor so you can easily use it with a hotkey: Optionally select text in the initial application Hit the Edit with hotkey labeled “Copy” (the first one in the workflow) After writing hit the second hotkey named “Paste Back”. Done. You can also utilize the keyword pastebbcode so you can convert markdown into BBCode and then paste to the initial application. It can be very handy if you'd like to write a forum post with your Markdown text editor. The conversion is based on Markdown to BBCode workflow. Check the supported Markdown syntax in the workflow help (keyword editwith?).

  4. Markdown Notes help to manage Markdown files in a directory with powerful full text search (supports & and |), tag search or search for todos ( - [ ] or * [ ]) . It also allows to quickly create new notes based on custom templates. I started to write this to replace the ton of Note taking apps that I used a while ago. I spent a lot of time to get this to work and the setup is a bit complex but once you went thru the steps it can indeed replace your note taking app. The best MD Editor for this purpose is Typora but any other MD editor works as well. Download at Git as usual: https://github.com/Acidham/alfred-markdown-notes/releases/latest

  6. What is does This Alfred workflow enables academic citing and publishing with any markdown app like iA Writer, Ulysses, or Scrivener. It does so by offering a Zotero Citation Picker for Pandoc Markdown Citations and by automatically converting Markdown files into `.docx`, `.pdf`, or `.html `with the proper bibliography. This workflow is made for academics like me who neither like Word nor LaTeX. As the name suggests, this workflow is basically a user-friendly interface for Pandoc, allowing you to make use of Pandoc's vast capabilities without ever needing to open the Terminal.

  7. Hey, My workflow seems to be quite strange. What I can not understand at all. 😉 At least I've been looking for a solution for days. My customer sends me a file (.jpeg) that I have to edit and put online on a certain day. So I copy the file into the customer folder and create a task for this day in my Task Manager (NotePlan). So that I don't have to search for the file again later, I want to link it in the task. That's why I create an MD link. So far everything is good. But when I click on the MD link, the file is opened in Preview. Because Preview is the default app for opening JPEG's. So as a preview the behaviour is quite nice, but in that case I have to edit the file in Photoshop. And I don't want to change the default application for opening JPEG's. And that is the problem. I can't open the file in Photoshop with the MD link. I would have to go back into the client folder and find the file. Furthermore, I've created a macOS Quick Action (Service) in Automator which also works when I select the file itself. But not the link to the file. What I want is a bit like opening an alias or symlink in Photoshop. Is there any way to achieve this with Alfred (with Powerpack)? Mario
  8. Given my recent discussion about formatting issues with RTF Snippets, it occurred to me that Markdown-formatted snippets could be really useful. There are some existing Markdown Workflows for Alfred like MarkdownTransform and Alfred Markdown Notes and so while I might attempt to create a Nested Snippets Workflow that allows storing snippets in Markdown and then passing them through a Markdown parser before pasting the results, being able to specify Markdown as another properly support snippet format in Alfred could be very handy.
  9. Alfred Bear Templates Workflow Workflow to create a bear note from a given template. These templates follow bear snippet syntax and can contain default alfred variables (e.g. {datetime}). The Templates live in the bearTemplateDirectory which is by default '~/.bear-templates' but can be changed by giving another path starting at the users home directory. Usage By default just type bt and then start to type. The Workflow suggests all template names it found in the bearTemplateDirectory. To get the snippet variables translated it pushes the template text to the clipboard. So after using the workflow the template is in Bear and also in your clipboard. Download You can download the workflow from Packal
  10. I can get the markdown-format link from browser, like [Outer space - Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outer_space) and it’s convenient to paste to markdown supporting app like Typora, as Outer space - Wikipedia but some apps, like Words and OneNote, don’t support the format. After pasting, it shows as the original code. Is there any workflow can do this conversion automatically by shortcut? In other words, when I have the markdown-format link in my clipboard and press the shortcut in Words or OneNote, a hyperlink-with-text would be generated in my notes.
  11. I've having an issue with Alfred 4.2.1 [1887] where I cannot search for content contained within a Markdown file. Here is the breakdown between Spotlight and Alfred. Spotlight Can find .md files by name Can find .md files by content Alfred Can find .md files by name Cannot find .md files by content I ran the "File Search Troubleshooting" tool on the specific markdown file I'm trying to find and it passes with no problems. Any help on this problem is greatly appreciated!

  13. LaTeX ⟷ Markdown Alfred Workflow Quickly convert Markdown to LaTeX or vice versa from your clipboard with Pandoc. Description A simple routine to convert snippets of markdown to LateX from your clipboard or vice versa. The workflow creates either a *.md or *.tex file relative to your input and at the location you choose. The file is converted with Pandoc by calling it from the terminal. The converted file subsequently gets output at the same place. Existing files will be overwritten. Pandoc is key and has to be installed: $ brew install pandoc GitHub: github.com/zeitlings/alfred-latex-md/raw/master/LaTeX-MD.alfredworkflow (direct download) github.com/zeitlings/alfred-latex-md Alternative Method: Clipboard only An altered version that removes all created files and copies the converted output back to your clipboard: Convert markdown to LateX from your clipboard or vice versa. The workflow creates either a *.md or *.tex file at your ~/Documents folder. The file will be converted with pandoc by calling it from the Terminal. The contents of the converted file will be copied to your clipboard. Both files will be moved to your trash bin. GitHub: github.com/zeitlings/alfred-latex-md-direct/raw/master/LaTeX-MD-direct.alfredworkflow (direct download) github.com/zeitlings/alfred-latex-md-direct _____________ The workflow is piggybagging off these two: https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/459-workflow-create-a-new-text-file-with-clipboard-content/ https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/394-fixed-create-a-new-file-in-the-finder/ https://pandoc.org/
  14. Why I need this? Sometimes I just found myself repeating copy/paste URL and title from Chrome to write some reference. Even worse, different apps accept different format (Yeah, I'm talking about you, Ulysses!). So here is my workflow: Usage Just type \\u in your favorite app. Problem 1. I tried and failed to use matches regex in Filter Utility, that's why I have to hard coded three (and maybe more in the future) filter. This is my failed attempt: Notes|Evernote|scapple 2. The else (marked in red in screenshot above) is not actually fallback, which may lead to some bug. # What I thought it would be if condition_a: ... elif condition_b: ... elif condition_c: ... # How it actually works if condition_a: ... if condition_b: ... if condition_c: ...

  15. For those who uses github and markdown, I have created a simple workflow to automatically create the Table Of Contents for the markdown files. The github website is: https://github.com/bhishanpdl/Alfred_MARKDOWN_TOC We can also find this package in packal.
  16. Download: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4345768/markdown-toc.alfredworkflow Usage: Select markdown document, and select [Markdown TOC] then toc contents are copied to Clipboard. Markdown: Output: Default depth of section is 2.
  17. I created this little workflow a while back and thought somebody else might find it useful. The workflow will grab all tabs from the frontmost Safari window, format them into a Markdown list and copy the list to the clipboard for further use. The list is formatted like this: # URL List from Safari Tabs | Dienstag, 14. Juni 2016 um 12:34:42 * [Alfred App Community Forum](http://www.alfredforum.com/index.php) * [Posting New Topic - Alfred App Community Forum](http://www.alfredforum.com/index.php?app=forums&module=post&section=post&do=new_post&f=3) The code is based on an AppleScript I found somewhere. Sadly I don't know where anymore so I cannot give proper credit. Download
  18. It would be nice if the "About this Workflow" supported markdown. The user would be presented the rendered HTML when viewing "About this Workflow" on install and afterwords. Then maybe an edit button to edit the raw markdown.
  19. Hi guys, I just want to share with you a workflow that simply converts a MultiMarkdown text in HTML. DOWNLOAD Once installed you just have to copy the MultiMarkdown text to your clipboard, summon alfred, type mmd and hit return: the HTML will be instantly copied to your clipboard. You can read more here. ATTENTION: It requires MultiMarkdown in order to work. Only OS X is supported.
  20. I have tried a lot, but for some reason I cannot use Alfred to search for markdown files on ONE OF MY computers. So on my Macbook, everything works find, but on my iMac Alfred does not find .md files (I also tried .markdown extension). Can someone please point me in the right directory? Settings are the same on both Macs Spotlight settings are the same on both macs Have trie rebuilding index, also deleting .spotlight.v100 directory Still no results found on my iMac while searching for a file with markdown extension However, when I try to find the files with the Alfred "find" feature, everything works fine. Help!
  21. Hello, I created a workflow which search a file name and content of a folder for nvALT application's markdown and text documents through File Filter object. But, it doesn't show a right result that I expected. There are several symptoms that I noticed. - When I search a keyword on nvALT , it shows a right result. - When I search a keyword on Alfred with the workflow , it doesn't show a same result above. - When I search a keyword on Finder , it is same like using Alfred's workflow. - I tried to re-index Spotlight. But, it is still same.
  22. Wikify Your little Evernote Wiki-Helper Version 2.6 Download at Packal This is a workflow in progess, but Version 2.0 adds a tone of super helpful functions for dealing with Evernote for Markdown lovers. This is aimed at making it easier to create a personal wiki on your computer, using Evernote as the backbone. New complete documentation on my blog: http://bit.ly/1xA0D44 Current Features: Version 2.0 adds four features to 1.2's functionality. Meaning these are the new functions: Markdown to Evernote (mden)document-specific text snippets (use ^^^snippet^^^ syntax) auto-linking to pre-existing Evernote notes (no special syntax) auto-linking to new Evernote notes (use [[double bracket]] syntax) Evernote to Markdown (enmd) Auto-Link to pre-existing notes for Selected Evernote note(s) (wfy) Auto-Link to new notes for Selected Evernote note(s) (ensel) See the posts below for more detailed accounts of these features. NOTE: In order to use a number of these features, you will need the Satimage OSAX Scripting Addition. I've set it up such that this is remarkably easy to install. Simply use the keyword in Alfred wfy:install and the Satimage installer will boot up and walk you through the process. Markdown to Evernote The first feature allows you to write in any editor on your Mac in Markdown, and simply and easily send that data to Evernote as formatted HTML. In order to assign Note Title, Notebook, and Tags, you can use simple MultiMarkdown Headers, or simple symbols: Title: or # for the note's title Notebook: or = for the note's notebook destination Tags: or @ for the note's tags At import, Wikify comes with a Hotkey or a Keyword to launch this functionality. Simply select your text (ctr + A) and then hit your user-defined hotkey, or pop-up Alfred and type mden, and Wikify will instantly send you Markdown text to Evernote as fully-formatted HTML. Evernote to Markdown Have you ever wanted to edit your Evernote notes in the plain-text glory of Markdown? If so, this is the feature for you. Using Aaron Swartz's glorious html2text Python script, Wikify will convert the currently selected Evernote note to a Markdown plain-text file. Wikify will save the .md file in its storage folder (~/Library/Application Support/Workflow Data/com.hackademic.wikify/). You can create a Markdown file of an Evernote note, edit it, and then send it back using the twin function. Let me know if you have any issues, and keep posted for further functionality. stephen
  23. I'd like to create a workflow that works in the following way: - Select some text in an app in OSX - Invoke Alfred - Type: 'mb' and press Return - Have Alfred take the selection and wrap it like **selection** - Paste into the frontmost app, replacing the selection without adding a line break Why? I'd like to have these shortcuts available for quickly adding Markdown syntax to text, primarily: Bold - 'mb' - selection -> **selection** Italic - 'mi' - selection -> *selection* I don't want to use a Hotkey for this but rather type "mb" return or "mi" return. Any thoughts? Or any existing workflows I could take a look at that do something similar? As a sidenote, now that Alfred is supporting JavaScript, would this be feasible with that new feature? Thanks!
  24. I upgraded to OS X 10.10.3 and now Alfred cannot find my markdown files. I seemed to try everything in this guide http://support.alfredapp.com/kb:indexing, but maybe there's something I missed. Here's what all I tried. 1) OS X Spotlight Preferences > Privacy. No folders were listed. I added the folder and removed it. 2) OS X Spotlight Preferences > Search Results. All boxes are checked 3) Alfred Search scope is set to the right folder. I removed and re-added the folder. 4) File permissions: I set all the files in the folder (and the folder itself) to Chmod 777. 5) I rebuilt the OS X spotlight index ("Rebuild OSX Metadata"). It took over an hour, but I let it complete fully. Spotlight actually sees the files just fine but Alfred doesn't. 6) File Types: I removed and re-added the markdown file type in Alfred (Features > Default Results > Advanced) 7) I refreshed the Alfred cache ("reload") If I type "find" or use the shortcut ( ' ), the file shows up, but just typing the filename doesn't pull up anything. Here is an interesting hint - when I enable "Unintelligent (Search all file types)" in Features > Default Results, the markdown files show up! Not sure what is happening, though... Alfred v2.6 (374) OSX 10.10.3 Thanks.
  25. Overview TOC Workflow creates, updates and removes a markdown table of contents that can be useful when writing a more complex document. It should work fine when exported to a html document. Note that, due a bug/limitation of current OSX PDF print function, TOC will not work in a PDF saved/converted by most of writing applications. How to Use Create a TOC open your markdown editor and type your text when you finish it show Alfred and type the keyword toc press Return key the workflow will select the text, copy it, add the TOC and anchor, then paste the text back You can also set a hotkey to create a TOC. Update a TOC If you have edited the text after inserting the TOC then just run the keyword toc again and the workflow will create an updated TOC. Remove a TOC The workflow can also remove the TOC and anchors for good. It can be handy if you e.g. want to work with a cleaner text, without TOC and anchors. To remove show Alfred, type the keyword toc, hold Command key then press Return key. You can also set a hotkey to remove it. Screenshots Type your markdown text as always and don't you worry about TOC: Show Alfred, type the keyword toc then press return key (or use the hotkey) to create a TOC and the anchors: Preview the document to see the TOC: Download Before using the workflow for good make some tests and backup your texts first.
