Download get Install App workflow from Packal get Install App workflow direct download Introduction The Install App workflow speeds installation process (or rather copy) of applications downloaded outside of Mac App Store. The workflow is completely written using Bash Script. How it works? There are two ways to invoke that workflow: through keyword — install — which shows all eligible files/packages (.app package, .zip archive, .dmg image and .pkg installer) found in specified folder (default is ~/Downloads) and copy, run, mount or extract them dependably of what kind of file/package we choose; you can also use install name so Alfred will narrow results; through File Action Install App which behave in similar way as above. The Install App workflow behaves as follow: if you choose .app package it will be copied to /Applications folder; if you choose .pkg file it will be opened; if you choose .dmg file it will be mounted and searched for .app or .pkg to copy or run them; at the end the image will be unmounted; if you choose .zip file it will be unzipped into folder which will be searched for .app, .pkg or .dmg to copy, run or mount them; at the end the temp folder will be deleted; at the end of whole process you will be asked if you want to remove the source file. Tips to change folder to search for mentioned files you need to edit Script Filter element of workflow → uncomment SEARCHDIR variable and edit its value Release info 1.11: improve mounting dmg files – now works with images with EULA 1.10: displays app icon if user has that app already (eligible for app updates files) 1.9: bug fixes dramatically reduces workflow size (from ~700 KB to 150 KB) workflow now searches in subdirectories of main directory if workflow finds .app package it will display that app's real icon (not a placeholder) 1.8: bug fixes following last update the workflow will open installed application if it was opened 1.7: workflow checks now if app is already running and if so it asks to quit it 1.6: fixed file matching fixed post-install notifications 1.5: unmount .dmg image after copying/installing app, remove temporary .zip folder after copying/installing app, ability to remove source files after copying/installing app (the dialog window will appear). 1.3 initial public release. Thanks I would like to thank Franz Greiling who inspired me to make this workflow with his own version.
Hello there This is my first Workflow published here, I hope, that some of you will find it useful. App Install Installs Apps from your Downloads folder This Workflow is inspired by the Alfred v1 Extension from Christian Schlensker, written in Python, and set it up as an Alfred v2 Workflow. As far as I know, nobody else has ported this script over, so here we go: It searches your Downloads-Folder for any *.app, *.pkg, *.alfredworkflow, *.dmg- and *.zip-Files shows you a list sorted by most-recently-added you can search in that list by entering a string after the keyword installs the apps /Applications or opens the *.pkg To use it, simply type install and hit Enter. If you use ⌘-↩ it will delete the download after installing. You can search in the results: You can also select any appropriate file within Alfred and use the install-File-Action: Supported Filetypes: Currently, this Workflow will find all zips, dmgs, apps, alfredworkflows and pkgs in your download-folder and install all apps and pkgs inside zips and dmgs. It does not try to find out, if a pkg is an uninstaller or not! Getting the Workflow You can find this Workflow on Github or download the Workflow directly. Settings You can customize the list of searched paths (for example, so that the workflow searches both your Download-Folder and your Desktop-Folder) and you can customize the install-location for normal Applications. Please tell me how you like it, what you would want to change, etc! I am still looking for a new Icon (please contact me if you have one! (: ). Remember that I personally consider this Workflow as being Beta-Software so please help me to find and fix every bug you might encounter. For more Information about Features and Settings, please read the Documentation at Github. Changelog v1.0: [17. March]:Complete rewrite; created individual installation-framework; new Icon Bugfix: Prevent faulty symlinks when installing from zips by not using python anymore Feature: Substring Filtering for Searchresults v0.4: [29. May]:Ability to install Alfred Workflows Ability to run pkgs Some bugfixes v0.3: [28. May]Fix Symlinkproblem in Zipfiles Add ability to delete Download after install (by pressing ⌘-↩) v0.2:Add ability to install from `*.zip`-Files Show all possible matches instead of only one (This is still sorted by most-recent) v0.1: Initial Release Thanks very much for you attention fellas, I hope you'll enjoy this little script. Greetings, Franz
