designandsuch posted a topic in Share your WorkflowsA better unit converter Download V0.6 contact firstname.lastname@example.org for questions, bugs, ideas and such try out the demo There are more unit converters available. but i didn't like the lack of speed due to the feeds. Thus i redid one myself which calculates everything on your mac. It fetches new currency data once in a while.. that's the only time when a second delay might appear. And in my humble opinion it's already better than all other unit converters around. I might add more units in the future but so far it has: - 7 units temperature ( celsius, kelvin, fahrenheit etc. ) - 21 units on length ( km, miles, nautical miles etc. ) - 15 units on weight ( kg, lb, etc. ) - 8 units on time ( days, hours, years months etc ) - 18 units on digital memory ( GB, MB TB bytes, kilobytes etc ) - 5 units on speed ( km/h, miles per hour etc. - 90 units on currencies ( euro, dollar, pounds, dinar etc. ) that's 164 units It has a nice blind rating system. so the more you choose for one answer, the more it will be likely that that one shows up in the suggestions. Automatic updates from a currency xml file I am working on an automatic update on the whole workflow so i could add new features while you use it. But that is not finished yet.. and i thought.. let's start sharing maybe ill get some nice feedback for possible cool ideas. * designed the icons myself, probably could work some more on those too. it doesn't need explanation... if you'll just start typing "5 kilometer to miles..." or something you will figure out how it works. some screenshots:
You know all those fancy apps you can buy to "free" up used memory? Well I figured out how to create a workflow to do the same thing. The caveat is that you have to have xcode command line utilities installed. But it's pretty neat. This is my first workflow! Feedback is much appreciated! https://www.box.com/s/fp70s1rq1obtsgc6fjod
I've searched high-and-low for a memory status workflow but found anything. I'd like a workflow to view swap memory status and page-ins/page-outs. This is a key performance indicator to me and something I check on often. A total memory status readout would be ideal (which would include Memory Used, Cache, App Memory, Wired Memory, Compressed Memory, and possibly the new Memory Pressure figure), but just swap memory is what I need most. Alternatively, how would I be able to build this myself? (screenshot from iStatMenus) PS I know that in more recent versions of OS X, memory management has been optimized and Apple now uses the concept of "Memory Pressure" to indicate RAM load, but I still look to swap status to see why my system's behaving a certain way. Correct me if I'm wrong on that.
I made an alfred (v1) extension which I ported over to a workflow. It not only purges inactive memory, but also shows the amount purged, e.g. "1024 MB Purged". It's only requirement is python, which I'm pretty sure is pre-installed on macs, so there *should* be no issues in that respect. Important Note - If this workflow is not working for you: This workflow sometimes requires Xcode Command Line Tools to use the purge command. To download the tools, you can do one of the following (and only one as if you do more it can cause issues): Download Xcode from the Mac App Store and go to Preferences -> Downloads -> Components and download Command Line Tools Register for a free account at http://developer.apple.com and go to https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action, search for command line and download the latest version of Command Line Tools for your version of OS X If you are running OS X Snow Leopard, you can either do 1 or download the command line tools from https://github.com/downloads/kennethreitz/osx-gcc-installer/GCC-10.6.pkg, as Apple does not provide a version of Command Line Tools for OS X 10.6 on developer.apple.com You can download it at http://db.tt/mdQCdaT5 I would be really grateful for any feedback
