  1. Alfred Star Ratings View and set star ratings for your files. Star ratings (like in iTunes) are a great way to categorise and organise your files. Unfortunately, you can access them directly in Finder, but Smart Folders (aka Saved Searches) do support them. Combine 'em to get quick access to your favourite porn Oscar-winning movies. Goes great with my Smart Folders workflow. Download & installation Download the workflow from GitHub releases or Packal. Double-click the downloaded .alfredworkflow file to install it. Usage This workflow works primarily via Alfred's File Actions. It uses Alfred's main window to display the ratings of the files you have selected in Finder, but they are altered via File Actions. In particular, if you just want to rate some files (rather than see their ratings), you should select them in Finder and directly call Alfred's File Actions mode with ⌥⌘+\ (default Alfred hotkey). From Alfred's main window .r — Grab the files currently selected in Finder and display them with their ratings. This is attached to a Hotkey, which you can assign (Alfred strips Hotkeys from workflows when you install them). Feel free to change this keyword, but you probably want to choose something unique (i.e. it doesn't match any of Alfred's default results), so the File Buffer is easy to use. → (default Alfred hotkey) — Show File Actions for selected result. ⌥+↑ (default Alfred hotkey) — Add result to File Buffer. ⌥+↓ (default Alfred hotkey) — Add result to File Buffer and move selection to next result. ⌥+→ (default Alfred hotkey) — Open File Actions for all files in the File Buffer. From Alfred's File Actions window Entering the number of stars you wish to assign (e.g. 0, 1, 2 etc.) should show the corresponding action. The action to clear the rating is called "Clear Star Rating", so typing clear should show that action. Licensing, thanks This workflow is released under the MIT licence. It relies on the following open-source resources: The icon is from Font Awesome by Dave Gandy (SIL licence). biplist by Andrew Wooster for parsing/generating binary plists (licence). Alfred-Workflow by me, a library for writing Alfred 2 workflows (MIT licence).
  2. The EXIF Data Alfred Workflow uses Exiftool and mdls to quickly display metadata in Alfred. Version: 1.0 Release date: 2013-04-21 Author: John Day Original Release Page : http://www.johneday.com/831/exif-data-alfred-workflow Download Usage: Select a file and call the EXIF Data workflow with the et keyword. Map the four Hotkeys to bypass the main menu and execute options directly. Select an item from the View in Alfred option to copy the tag’s information to the clipboard. Select one or multiple items from the Choose from list option to copy the tag and its information to the clipboard. Select the Export to file option to save metadata to a text file in ~/Documents/metadata/ using ExifTool. One or multiple files may be processed with this option. If the selection is not a supported file type, you are given the option to use mdls to view available information. Select the Export mdls to file option to save metadata to a text file in ~/Documents/metadata/ using mdls. One or multiple files may be processed with this option. System Modifications: A metadata folder is created in Documents to archive the text files created by the Export to file and Export mdls to file commands.
  3. Forgive me if this is a stupid question but I perused the help me stuff and didn't see an answer for this... Is it possible to add data or metadata to a file as I'm saving it? I do voiceover work so I'm auditioning a lot and I'd like to be able to mark some auditions (mp3) I send out for future use. My perfect world situation would be to create a file, name it 'FileA' for the audition file but as I'm saving it insert a trigger letter/symbol that would add more information (such as 'Great Read') TO THAT FILE so that I can find it later. Is this possible with Alfred?
  4. I've been working on a hidden files workflow recently (https://github.com/spooch56/alfred-hidden-files) and I came upon a very interesting metadata tag: kMDItemInvisibleFileType. Unlike the kMDItemFSInvisible tag, it's not listed in apple's metadata reference, indicating that it was added by an outside app. Based on a fairly limited survey of people, I've noticed that it only seems to appear on the computers with Alfred and so my best guess is that Alfred adds this metadata tag to allow md indexing of hidden files. Does anyone else know about this for certain? Do you guys all have this tag as well? I'd really like to share my workflow but not if it only works for me. Any information you guys have would be excellent.
  5. In many workflows that I've downloaded, I've found that much of the metadata isn't included. It's fairly simple to write the few sentences that make the workflows more meaningful, but the most important one that I've seen is the bundleid, which is often left blank. While not absolutely necessary for the workflow to function on its own, the metadata can help other workflows that interact with the installed workflows in Alfred. Also, it does really help to fill in the website data. If you aren't using github or another page that has more information and lists some other workflows, then it might be best just to link to the forum post in which you release the workflow. Also, this request might just come out of a bit of OCD that I have.
  6. Hi Two questions regarding "File Filters" 1) I would like to know how to make a file filter that searches for a specific extension. I have some Truecrypt images in my ~/Documents folder, to which I can add a .tc extension. In the advanced tab of the file filter node, I noticed the KMDItemDisplayName matadata field I tried to change the "Value" column from "{query}" to ".tc" or even "{query}.tc" without success. How would you do such a thing without a script filter? Where can I find information on how to use those Advanced fields columns? 2) I noticed that when I type the file filter keyword in Alfred, it waits for the space to be entered after the keyword to display results. If I uncheck the "with space" option it needs only one space, if I check it it needs two spaces. Is there any way that it starts displaying the results without having to type any space? And the space would be autocompletes when selected an entry in the list? Cheers!
