Keywords: Open each of the three different Library folders by keywords: library system (open a Finder window @ /System/Library/) library hd (open a Finder window @ /Macintosh HD/Library/) library user (open a Finder window @ ~/Library/) library visible (make library folders visible in Finder) library hidden (hide library folders in Finder) appsup hd (open a Finder window @ ( /Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/) appsup user (open a Finder window @ ~/Library/Application Support/) If you would like to use keyboard shortcuts to open the folders - just setup the shortcuts you would like to use in the Alfred preferences. Each shortcut has a keyword in the bottom (hd, system and user) - use these to identify what each of the shortcuts does. Another useful feature of this workflow is the plist search - I hate how much time I have to spend finding a single plist file on my Mac, but with this workflow I can do this in a few seconds. You can do the same by typing the following in Alfred: plist YOUR_SEARCH Download Open Library Folders
Guys and Gals, I had an interesting issue last night where there was an erroneous entry in my Default Browser drop-down in Safari Preferences, as illustrated below: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/92027174/Screen%20Shot%202013-07-30%20at%209.05.26%20PM.jpg The Wondershare App that is displayed was not even on my system any more, and DEFINITELY was not a browser. I figured that there would be a phantom plist somewhere. I typed 'Wondershare' into Alfred, and there WERE a few bits and pieces listed which I removed, but this did not fix the issue. I typed Wondershare into Spotlight, and Wondershare.plist appeared in the Developers section. I deleted it, and rebooted my Mac. The Wondershare entry illustrated above disappeared! I was very happy. My questions: 1) Why didn't Alfred find 'Wondershare.plist', but Spotlight did? and 2) What do I need to change in Alfred setting to make sure that plist files are displayed in future? Cheers, Smurf
I've started work on a workflow bundle that I intend to use as a base for other scripting workflows. The language I'm most proficient in is Ruby, so I've taken the liberty of creating this for myself and others to use when developing in Ruby. Features: Shows exceptions and debug output in the Mac OS X Console Adds a ruby gems repository to the workflow bundle so you can package gems with your workflow. Provides access to the workflow bundle's info.plist data Provides sqlite3 gem It's incomplete, but I wanted to get feedback from others as soon as possible. For example, I've added a compiled sqlite3 gem in as part of the gem repository. Does this work across Mac systems? i.e. if you install the workflow, do you get sqlite3 support out-of-the-box? To get started: Copy the init.rb.example file into your script window (e.g. Run Script action). Choose /usr/bin/ruby as the script language. The contents of init.rb.example is some "bootstrap" ruby code that takes great care to catch all exceptions and send them to the Console.app so you can debug your scripts. Copy alfred.rb and main.rb to your bundle. Also copy ruby-1.8 and its subdirectories. This is the gem repo that will let you install gems as part of the bundle for others to use. https://github.com/canadaduane/alfred2-ruby-framework Thanks, Duane Johnson http://makerhome.ca/
