  1. View and change your network location from Alfred. Installation Download the workflow from Packal or GitHub. Usage netloc [<query>] — Show list of network locations filtered by <query> if one is specified ↩ — Activate selected network location ⌘+↩ — Open Network Preferences ​Note: You will probably be asked to enter your password to change the network location. Licence This workflow is released under the MIT Licence.

  3. Hey everyone! My first post so please be nice! I am running the latest version of Alfred 3 on Mac OS X Sierra. I'm having a bit of an odd issue that am hoping someone on here can help me out with. For some reason when I use the browser feature in Alfred to navigate some networked volumes (SMB, off a NAS if it matters), it shows multiple different versions of the networked drive but only one is valid. The others have a red dash on them (the symbol Mac OS X uses to show you don't have correct permissions) and obviously they are empty. I have attached a screenshot for clarification. Anyone have an idea about how to clear these old ones out? I have already tried clearing the "cache" in the settings. I have not rebuilt the whole spotlight index as that is time and resource intensive. Before I try that, I wanted to see if anyone on here has any better ideas. Thanks. I appreciate the help!
  4. Good morning folks. I make use of the network location capabilities within OS X and presently the fastest method of switching profiles is by using the option in the Apple menu (Apple > Location > profile). Would it be possible to add this switching capability to Alfred? Perhaps using the keyword 'location' followed by the designator; e.g., 'location home', 'location work', 'location lab', etc. Thanks and great product!
  5. Workflow allows to convert IPv4 to INT and vice versa.. http://bit.ly/1ngYmY2
  6. Hi I'm just trialling Alfred at the moment, with the view to purchasing the Powerpack to allow me to build custom home automation controls. On my internal network (HOME) I can get the Remote IOS to connect to the Mac and control everything, which is fine. If I disconnect my iPhone from the Wifi network I can register using a static hostname (via http://www.noip.com), (EXTERNAL) after allowing port forwarding on my router and setting rules via Little Snitch, which again is fine. However, if I then turn my wifi on my iPhone back on and try to connect to HOME network I can no longer connect to the Mac. I have to delete the connection on both Mac and iPhone and reconnect to HOME, adding new passphrase. My question really is do you support multiple connections from a single iPhone from HOME and EXTERNAL connections? This is really the point of what I am trying to achieve with Alfred. I need to be able to control my Mac and connected devices/services when at HOME and then when I leave, still be able to connect directly from any EXTERNAL network, without having to do any further configuration.
  7. I am looking to streamline things in my workplace. Much time is spent here navigating through network directories and subdirectories to find the correct file for a given job, and waiting for files to populate during each step of the process. I would like to be able to quickly navigate to the correct subdirectory based on inputted text. Is this at all possible? Thanks, Mark
  8. On OS-X, there's a few ways to 'Lock' the Mac. One is to manually lock it using the keychain or keyboard shortcut, the other is to let the screensaver lock the mac after a timeout. When locked manually, OS-X disconnects the network, exposing a bug is OS-X where unlocking doesn't re-establish network connectivity without manually disconnecting/reconnecting the network. Unfortunately, this also happens when using Alfred to Lock the Mac (via typing "lock"). The network disconnect does not happen if the Mac is locked via screensaver timeout. It would be nice if Alfred allowed the user to disable shutting down the network connection when locking the screen.
  9. https://github.com/anthonymobile/Alfred-WifiPicker My first workflow. A WiFi scanner, selector, and connector workflow. This is a simple workflow to allow you to quickly pick a WiFi network to connect to. Lots of people have asked for this amidst the dozens of wifi togglers but surprisingly this is the first one to be written. Based on: Eject Disk workflow by Steffen Lyngbaek http://steffen.lyngbaek.comhttp://www.manyk.ca/Alfred2/Eject%20Disk.alfredworkflow Wi-Fi Scanner by Matt Silas - https://github.com/MattSilas/Wifi-Scanner/blob/master/wifiscan.py
  10. Hi! Today I want to give you some little workflow that shows your external and local IP addresses. Pressing Return will copy them. Download and enjoy! Cheers, Maciej Skrzypczak
  11. Filters your list of network locations for provided query and activates the selected one. Download at http://d.pr/f/mJMy
  12. First workflow, and first upload. There are no external requirements. Simple script is included. This should print (in Large type window) your current IP addresses on "normal" interfaces, or it will say 'down' or 'invalid'. Improvements certainly welcome! Launch by typing "ipstat" into Alfred. I created this so I could quickly see my IP addresses from anywhere in OS X without using the mouse. Download here
  13. As things stand, workflows that require web access are basically just going to break on a machine that can only access the web via a proxy server. Alfred should set the http_proxy environmental variable before calling any workflow. Currently, it is not only necessary for every workflow to be "proxy aware" if it wants to work on all machines, but it is also extremely difficult to determine the proxy server from a script, as it depends on the current network profile and Apple's command line utilities don't provide a straightforward way to get the proxy address. By setting the http_proxy environmental variable before running a workflow's script, Alfred could make using the proxy entirely transparent to Ruby/Python workflow authors (both languages' standard network libraries will automatically use the proxy specified in http_proxy, as will curl), and much easier to use for workflows written in other languages (they can grab the environmental variable rather than trying to coax the same information out of OS X themselves). Essentially, workflow authors shouldn't need to have to worry about network settings, as far as that can be avoided, not least of all because it represents something that currently needs to be implemented separately in every single workflow that needs web access.

  15. Hi, this is a workflow to activate an existing VPN profile, it allows you to connect and to disconnect (a lot of features!). As usual, the VPN profile has to be available in the current Network Location. If you don't have any VPN connection, I think you should setup one just to try this workflow Here is how it looks like and, as usual, you can download it from here. Have a lot of fun Gaetano
  16. Hi There, I am totally new to Alfred, so i'm not sure how to go about this, but I just thought I would ask because I am sure someone has had the same problem. In the office we have a mac server with all our files / documents, everything we have ever worked on. On my mac to access this it is located in the shared network. How can I set Alfred so it searches our Server. Spotlight searches these files fine but its just a bit slow. I have tried adding the folder with Search Scope but the files are not appearing. Any help on getting this to work would be greatly appreciated Regards
  17. Hi! I've just finished my first workflow. It will show and copy to clipboard your current IP address when you use the ip keyword. You can download it at: http://cl.ly/2828052X0r2B Hope you enjoy it!
  18. This workflow allows you to easily connect or disconnect the VPN. Keyword desciption: cvpn --Quick connect your VPN, no parameters dvpn --Quick disconnect your VPN, no parameters connect --Connect to the specified VPN, require VPN name disconnect --Disconnect to the specified VPN, require VPN name Run NSAppleScript desciption: first --Need to change second --Need to change third --Don't touch fourth --Don't touch If you want this, goto https://github.com/shengaofei/controlyourvpn.
  19. Here's a workflow to provide info about the network interfaces and the wifi connection. Type "ip" to show the ip and mac addresses of your interfaces as well as your current external ip address (maybe the address of your proxy). Type "wifi" to get the name, authentication mode and channel of your current wifi connection. Selecting any of the result items copies its value to the clipboard. Download Network Info
  20. Is there a way to create a workflow that would display the current upload and download traffic like the information you can get by viewing the network tab in the activity monitor?
