  1. This workflow is set to open Gmail by default, but can be easily configured to open any webpage by changing the URL in the Apple Script within the workflow. Configuring the workflow in this way requires almost zero programming knowledge--you just go into the Apple script of the workflow and replace the Gmail URL with whatever URL you want the workflow to open. You can also, of course, customise the keyword to match whatever URL it is you want to open. To use this workflow out of the box, type "gm" into Alfred and Gmail will open in a new Safari window. This workflow can be adapted to open any page in Safari; all you have to do is change the link in the Apple Script. The Github page for this workflow can be found here, and you can download it directly by clicking this link. The Apple Script used can also be found in the Github repository. This workflow was made for Mac OS using an Apple Script.
  2. This Alfred workflow opens a new Notion window when supplied the keyword "nn". The Github repository for the workflow can be found here. To download the Alfred workflow directly, click this link. This workflow was made for Mac OS using Apple script (which you can see in the Github repo).
  3. This Alfred workflow opens a new Safari tab with keyword "ns", and Google searches whatever you type after "ns ". If you don't type anything after "ns " (as usual, there has to be a space after the keyword), it just opens to the generic Google Search page. e.g. If you write "ns snoop dogg", a new Safari window will open the Google search results for "snoop dogg". If you only type "ns" into Alfred, the workflow will simply open a new Safari window. The Github page for this workflow can be found here, and you can download it directly by clicking this link. The Apple Script used can also be found in the Github repository. This workflow was made for Mac OS using an Apple Script.
  4. Hey all, I haven't been active in this community for a long time (though I used to a lot!). And I haven't really been keeping up with the updates. I'd like to have a workflow that would let me assign a keyboard trigger to open a terminal and make it the frontmost app. If the app was already open, just switch to it. If it wasn't, open it and switch to it. Does something like this exist already? If not, how can I make it? It seems very straightforward but glancing at the examples in the workflow tab of Alfred, I couldn't immediately see how to... Thanks for any help thrown my way, Cheers.
  5. I have been using Alfred for 5 years without even a hint of a problem but I am now having a lag (four or five seconds) upon launching Alfred (by keystroke). I have cleared the application cache, rebuilt Mac OS metadata, and restarted (app and mac). Any suggestions? Alfred version 3.6.1, Mac OS 10.12.6. Thanks.
  6. Perhaps this isn't a bug, but it still seems like the best place to do it. I sometimes use 'open' and 'find' somewhat interchangeably, understanding the difference of course, but with folders, the results are almost identical. The open command doesn't seem to work with folders (anymore?) It feels like it used to, but I can't be sure. I'm using multiple desktops on macOS Sierra, and it appears I need to be on the right desktop where possibly I have a finder window already open? Like I said, I can't quite pinpoint it. I should say, using the open command on a folder, nothing happens. If I then go and look on the other desktops (these are virtual, not an actual other screen), the folder isn't open there either. 'Find' works every time, but am I misunderstanding a basic concept here, or is this a bug? Thanks.
  7. Hi, I made a simple an apple script to open a specific folder triggered by a hotkey, but it's not working and I can't find why. It works if I use the Script Editor from Mac OS but when I paste it inside the "Run NSAppleScript" window on Alfred it doesn't. Script: on alfred_script(q) property the_path : "/Users/UserXXX/Downloads" set the_folder to (POSIX file the_path) as alias tell application "Finder" activate if front Finder window exists then set target of front Finder window to the_folder else open the_folder end if end tell end alfred_script
  8. Quickly access your Tower git repositories I finally got around to checking out Alfred today, and I was so blown away by the workflows feature that I decided to write one. Github: https://github.com/cjlucas/tower-alfred-workflow The latest packaged workflow can be found here. I will be checking for bug reports here as well as on Github. It'll be easier to diagnose bugs if I have your Tower bookmark's file as well (it can be found here: ~/Library/Application Support/Tower/Bookmarks.plist). If you'd prefer to not have it posted in public, you can send me a message on here or on Github.
  9. For whatever reason, I am unable to open the app ToDoist in Alfred. This is the only application I have had this issue with in the past 1-2 years I've been using Alfred. Here are some screenshots of what it looks like when I try to search for ToDoist (you can see the app is already open in the dock below). Any advice? Thanks! Zoë
  10. I'd quite like to be able to specify parent directories in the Open command to filter down results, such as open project1/index.html That would make the search function more useful when dealing with common filenames. In the above example, project1 would just be the parent directory; the path isn't absolute. The full path for that file might be /Users/me/projects/project1/index.html for instance
  11. Hello. Is there a workflow to "Show" all open/minimized windows for all your running apps? I find it very frustrating on my MacBook Pro that sometimes if I minimize the main window of an app, that no matter how many times I click the icon on the Dock, or click "Show Windows", nothing comes up, I have to quit the app, restart it and then just have to remember to not close it again lol.. A lot of the time, I will be running Logic X on one screen and Chrome and iMessage on the other, so it would be helpful to have something that can "Maximize/Show" all open/running windows.. Anything out there?
  12. I opened Alfred and hit 'op' to open something but it finds actual documents or emails and not Folders first == I want to work out a fast way to open a folder in my user folder, or attached drive, and this would do it other than it goes to a file instead. Thanks much.
  13. I have the latest Mavericks and Alfred and use Alfred's find and open without trouble but 'in' isn't working. You'd expect 'in' to use find then open then a search for the string, but 'in' doesn't even give the same found list as find and open; and 'in' sometimes can't find files at all when find and open can. The function 'in' seems to work sometimes, and when it does you'd expect to be shown the document page with the found string highlighted but it doesn't do this - what it does is to open the document at the page it was at when it was last closed. Also, 'in' doesn't like to find anything containing numbers.
  14. Maybe I've missed a preference, but for some reason my Hit List tasks are cluttering up my search results when I try to open files using the 'open' command. I'd like to complete remove the Hit List tasks from the open results. Is there anyway to do this?
  15. Just put together a quick workflow to open images in Pixelmator. Useful if you usually just want to open them, but occasionally need to edit. Open Image in Pixelmator
  16. Hi, In Alfred Prefs > File Search > Advanced I set there [x] use custom home folder as: /Volumes/main_HD/Users/omarkn/Documents/_Wie_HowTo for opening files in this folder. But when I write open in Alfred, I only get OPEN FILE with CMD 4, this is not specific - ? What else to do, or can I read somewhere in a tutorial? with best regards, Omar K N (Stockholm, Sweden)
  17. I currently have a basic workflow connected to a Hotkey that opens a folder. A hotkey setting, connects to "Launch Apps / Files" This works as expected, however it opens folders in new Finder windows. I would like it to open the folder in the current finder window. Any one know how this could be done? Thanks —James This is what I have set up now, it works but it opens in NEW finder windows, I want it to open in the current finder window (if there is one open and active)
  18. I'm using Path Finder and have it set as my default file browser. When I use Alfred's "Open file..." function to access a file folder, that folder is revealed in the Apple Finder. (This shouldn't be happening since I have Path Finder set as my default file browser). However, when I use Alfred's "Reveal file in Finder..." function to access that same folder, the folder is revealed in Path Finder. (This is what should be happening since I have Path Finder set as my default file browser.) I'm using Alfred v2.0.2 (178) and can replicate this issue. I have a new MacBook, 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5, 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, running OS X 10.8.3
  19. 'Alfred 2.app > Show Package Contents...'. Quicklook info.plist, hit 'Open with Textmate 2' in the upper right. Item opened in Textmate 2, Quicklook steals focus and shows 'No items selected'. Alfred v2.0.1 (173) on OS X 10.8.3. Replicated: yes
