  1. Hi there I run Alfred 3.5.1 (883) and I don't have the checkbox for Safari bookmarks in Default Results > Essentials (see attachment). I have deleted and reinstalled Alfred without success. What can I do? I haven't seen any other thread mentioning that problem, the checkbox seems to be there for everyone else. Thanks Lukas
  2. I am looking for a Alfred Workflow to minimize several opened Safari Windows such that the front window stays open but all the other opened windows are minimized. I am using Max OS Sierra 10.12.6. I have tried the suggested ones of Command + Option + M and/or + H but these do not work.
  3. I'm running Alfred 3.5.1 on macOS 10.12.6. The updated bookmarks search feature is great, but it doesn't search by URL. Honestly I'm not sure if the previous incarnation did either. I'm currently using a workflow I found on another thread (thanks @deanishe) that searches URLs, but it relies on Spotlight bookmark metadata that is no longer available in High Sierra. I really like the ability to search Safari bookmarks by URL, so much so that I'm hesitating upgrading to HS. Is there any way to get this functionality back? The URL is listed when I search by bookmark title, so I assume the information is available for Alfred to index with the bookmarks. So can I request this capability be added to Alfred? Thanks!

  5. Browser History Search

    This is pretty straightforward feature request. Since Alfred 3.5 there is an ability to search through your browser bookmarks. It's super nice, except it is only bookmarks. Wouldn't it be awesome to search through entire browser history in addition to bookmarks? This is how pretty much all modern browsers search bars are working, and there is a reason for that, it's really useful and convenient, considerably speeding up the time you need to enter URL. Right now, I often find myself going back to enter URLs/search in Safari, shy away of using Alfred for this type of functionality, since there are more relevant suggestions when I'm using Safari.
  6. I love Alfred, but I think you forgot something in your new Bookmarklets feature: Why are Safari and Chrome the only source options for new Bookmarklets. Why not show a little love to Firefox, too?
  7. original reference: http://maxyun.net/index.php/page/8/ I’ve done some google search jobs for a simple operation via Alfred pop up new safari on current workspace, and make it front (optional) if needed, open specific URL //currently this script valid for just 1 URL address. (optional) in case of specific URL, no need of “http://” Here is the .alfredworkflow file => dropbox link so, here is the simple usage to open up ‘blank’ page "nsafari' to open up ‘specific URL address’ "nsafari google.com"
  8. How to open url or keyword link with Alfred Bar, but to stay on the same tab? I want to open new tab without leaving current focused tab. Thank you for any help!
  9. Hello everyone! I have link https://www.shutterstock.com/search?searchterm=test&sort=popular&image_type=all&search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&page=1 The question is, how can I go to the page=2 https://www.shutterstock.com/search?searchterm=test&sort=popular&image_type=all&search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&page=2, and page 2+1=3, https://www.shutterstock.com/search?searchterm=test&sort=popular&image_type=all&search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&page=3, and page 3+1=4, https://www.shutterstock.com/search?searchterm=test&sort=popular&image_type=all&search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&page=4, and page 4+1=5 ... , etc ... on the same tab on Safari, with shortcut? It will save a lot of time. Thank you for any help!
  10. Bookmark content search

    Hi all, Spotlight has the ability to not only search for the title of a Safari bookmark, but also the content. Is there a way to do this in Alfred3? What I mean by this is lets say that I've titled my bookmark "A3" and the content is "https://www.alfredapp.com". I'd like to be able to search for "alfred", and get a hit for "https://www.alfredapp.com" in bookmarks, as opposed to having to remember the name of the title. Thanks.
  11. Hi everyone I'm a longtime Alfred PPack user, but never really taken the time I should have done to make the most of Workflows. I use the 'Open in Chrome...' workflow when I stumble across a page with Flash in Safari, but now realise I could reload the page for iOS from the Safari> Develop menu. Is it possible I can write a Workflow to do this? Thanks so much Adam
  12. Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/safari-tech-preview-webkit Github: https://github.com/joeworkman/alfred-safari-tech-preview As a web developer, I love to use Safari Technology Preview. However, typing Safari in Alfred always drives me crazy becuase I have to choose which Safari I want to open. I developed this simple workflow so that I can now launch Safari Technology Preview by typing webkit or wk into Alfred. You can also pass an optional URL to the command. If you do the URL will be opened inside Safari Technology Preview. If no URL is passed, the application will simply be activated.
  13. Hello! I made an Alfred 3 workflow to search and switch between open windows in the system and Safari (and Chrome) tabs. More app-by-app support are (hopefully) coming. It is uses the companion native app, that's what makes it much faster than the other alternatives. https://github.com/mandrigin/AlfredSwitchWindows/releases Sierra only (at the moment). PS: Thanks to Emanuele Munafò and his "Windows Switcher" workflow for the inspiration.

  15. Hiya all Is it possible to get results in Alfred from certain website pages? For example, Amazon's "Today's Deals", eBay's "Daily Deals", Sky News "UK" or The Guardian "UK"? Mark
  16. Hey! I often find myself in a situation where I need to paste the URL from one of my Safari bookmarks to someone in email, chat, forums, etc. It's great that I can easily find bookmarks in Alfred but in these cases I don't want to open the bookmark in my browser, I just want to copy its URL to the clipboard without leaving whatever app I'm in. Would anyone be kind enough to help me figure out how to accomplish this? Thanks!
  17. Copy Safari Tabs

    I created this little workflow a while back and thought somebody else might find it useful. The workflow will grab all tabs from the frontmost Safari window, format them into a Markdown list and copy the list to the clipboard for further use. The list is formatted like this: # URL List from Safari Tabs | Dienstag, 14. Juni 2016 um 12:34:42 * [Alfred App Community Forum](http://www.alfredforum.com/index.php) * [Posting New Topic - Alfred App Community Forum](http://www.alfredforum.com/index.php?app=forums&module=post&section=post&do=new_post&f=3) The code is based on an AppleScript I found somewhere. Sadly I don't know where anymore so I cannot give proper credit. Download
  18. I'm actually creating a workflow for the TYPO3 community http://www.typo3.org(an open source cms system) which should add features like Open TYPO3 backend in a new tab, Open TYPO3 install tool in a new tab. Therefore my script already supports Chrome and Safari. My problem is, that the safari tab isn't created after my current tab. It seems it isn't possible to changing The index value of a tab. Is there any possibility to make this working with a workaround? thx Jousch This is my actual script: on alfred_script(q) global backendPathSegment set backendPathSegment to "/typo3/index.php" tell application "System Events" to set frontApp to name of first process whose frontmost is true # SAFARI/WEBKIT if (frontApp = "Safari") or (frontApp = "Webkit") then using terms from application "Safari" tell application frontApp to set currentTabUrl to URL of front document set currentTabUrl to currentTabUrl & backendPathSegment tell application frontApp to set currentTabIndex to index of current tab of front window set newTabindex to currentTabIndex + 1 tell application frontApp tell front window set current tab to (make new tab with properties {URL:currentTabUrl}) end tell end tell end using terms from # CHROME else if (frontApp = "Google Chrome") or (frontApp = "Google Chrome Canary") or (frontApp = "Chromium") then using terms from application "Google Chrome" tell application frontApp to set currentTabUrl to URL of active tab of front window tell application frontApp to set currentTabTitle to title of active tab of front window tell application frontApp to set n to active tab index of front window tell application frontApp to set myTab to make new tab at after tab n of front window with properties {URL:currentTabUrl & backendPathSegment} end using terms from # ELSE (Firefox has no applescript support to my knowledge) else return "You need a supported browser as your frontmost app" end if end alfred_script
  19. # SafariHistorySearch Alfred workflow to search Safari history written in swift. #Usage `shs <SEARCH_TERMS>` Separate search terms with spaces if you want to search for more than one word. ie: `shs github safari` Each word is searched separately. If you want to search for a phrase, surround the phrase with double quotes, ie: `shs "Alfred Workflow to Search Safari History"` The results contain all search terms. This workflow searches the page url, page title and page body if available. see https://github.com/akaralar/SafariHistorySearch/releases for latest version. I hope you like it!
  20. Hello. Today I've experimented with Safari's windows management through Alfred & AppleScript and encountered with greatly strange issue. As you probably know, every window object in AppleScript has standard properties which are described in Standard Suite: id, name, miniaturized and the like. In Script Editor I can obviously get any of these properties and I thought I can do the same in Script Filter too. However when I try to get miniaturizable and miniaturized properties in a Script Filter's script, the script fails with an error "Safari got an error: Can’t make |miniaturized| of item 1 of every window into type reference." under number -1700. I've created this simple example to illustrate the issue: repeat with safari_window in every window of application "Safari" try log (get miniaturized of safari_window) on error msg number -1700 log msg end try end repeat When I run it in Script Editor it executes as expected and logs true/false values, but when I call it from Script Filter it produces errors and logs error messages: [STDERR: alfred.workflow.input.scriptfilter] Safari got an error: Can’t make |miniaturized| of item 1 of every window into type reference. Safari got an error: Can’t make |miniaturized| of item 2 of every window into type reference. Safari got an error: Can’t make |miniaturized| of item 3 of every window into type reference. Safari got an error: Can’t make |miniaturized| of item 4 of every window into type reference. Safari got an error: Can’t make |miniaturized| of item 5 of every window into type reference. Safari got an error: Can’t make |miniaturized| of item 6 of every window into type reference. Safari got an error: Can’t make |miniaturized| of item 7 of every window into type reference. Also it isn't a Safari issue. Other applications behave the same way. Can someone explain me, why is it happening? Thank you.

  22. Safari Bookmark Manager

    # Safari Bookmark Manager Alfred 2 Workflow to manage safari bookmark (delete / edit) # Installation You may need to install the gem (sorry...) Right-click on the worflow, show in finder. In Terminal, drag and drop the folder to `cd` to it. `gem install CFPropertyList` # Usage find a bookmark, go to file action, select `Rename Bookmark` or `Delete Bookmark` # How it's done? A bit sloppyly... Couldn't find a good doc to do it via iCloud directly. (and didn't really search for it). Alfred App find bookmark by because of their cache version in the user folder: ~/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari/Bookmarks Each file is name with a unique id. Editing / deleting this file is not enough, it's just a cache.. Bookmark will reappear or be re-edited by Safari. Another file maintain a more permanent version of the bookmarks: ~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist Steps: - find the bookmark uuid (the cache file name, passed by alfred) - find the matching entry in the plist and edit it / delete it (also add entry for iCloud -- see code) - repeat the action on the cache file Source: http://github.com/huguesbr/alfred2-workflow-safari-bookmark Workflow: http://git.io/vBEVM
  23. I would like to use (either standard alfred web search or a custom workflow) alfred to launch google searches. At the moment, they all open in a new window if the app (Chrome, Safari, Firefox) is not already open. I would like the behavior to be that the search opens in a new tab even if the app is currently closed, and is launched by the alfred query. Any help appreciated.
  24. [Request]

I'm wanting to copy a URL from Safari and paste it into a new TextEdit document and then save it to a specific location.

  25. Search, activate, reload and close your active Chrome and Safari tabs and favourite sites. RBT allows you to do the following all from within Alfred: Search all open tabs across Chrome and Safari and load a selected tab. Reload a tab forcibly when you select it if you want. Add "favourite" sites to the workflow for quick access with defined keywords. Synchronise your favourites across computers. RBT for Alfred has been forked from the Search Tabs on Safari and Chrome workflow developed by Clinton Strong (with Clinton's blessing) and could almost be considered v2 of Clinton's original workflow. The below instructions are a clone of what is posted on the official Github repository: UPDATE August 8, 2015 - Version 1.1 Released Today I release v1.1 of Rapid Browser Tabs which has the following changes: Fix - Tab icon for Safari did not display Feature - Add "ctrl" key modifier to force reload tab on opening Feature - Provide feedback on settings initialisation and sync Feature - Enable favourite searching by URL Installation Download the .alfredworkflow file or you can get it from Packal. Run to import into Alfred Setup Before you can do anything with the workflow you will need to initialise the settings: Run rbtsetup and select 'Initialise Workflow Configuration' The workflow will then copy over the default configuration files and example icons. The workflow has been designed to enable settings synchronisation via a mechanism of your choice (such as Dropbox). It is easiest to set this up before you get too deep into configuring the workflow. To configure synchronisation via Dropbox (as an example): Run 'rbtsetup' and select "Set root config folder location" Update the folder name to point to a new location, my personal preference is "~/Dropbox/AlfredSync/Workflow Data/com.stuartryan.alfred.rapidbrowsertabs/" (however you can use any location as long as you set it to be the same on different computers) Ensure you have ended your path with a trailing forward slash (things will break if you don't) and then save and close the configuration file. If this is the first computer you are setting the workflow up on (i.e. that directory does not exist or is empty) run rbtsetup then select "Refresh workflow configuration" to copy the default configurations into place Repeat steps 1 to 3 for every subsequent computer you will run the workflow on (after the initial sync has completed via Dropbox). Configure a hotkey: To make your life easier I also recommend you set up a hotkey for use with the workflow. Open Alfred Click Workflows --> Rapid Browser Tabs Double click on the Hotkey box Enter your hotkey and ensure the action is set to "Pass through to workflow" The argument should be set to "None" Click Save Basic Usage The default keyword set is "rbt" here are some examples of what you can do: rbt google - Will show all tabs you currently have open that have google in the URL or the tab description. rbt fb - FB is set as a keyword for Facebook. This will show any current Facebook tabs already open and will also allow you to open a new Facebook tab in your default browser as well. rbt nf - Same thing as above but will open Netflix rbt netflix - Same as above, workflow will recognise this is a favourite site and show all tabs currently open and will also offer the option to open a new tab to the Netflix website. ctrl key modifier - The control key when held down while selecting a tab will force the tab to reload/refresh when it is opened For backwards compatibility with the human brain (and the fact that everyone is used to using the keyword "tabs"), an additional entry point into the workflow using the keyword "tabs" has been added. Depending on user feedback this may be removed or adopted permanently in the future. Advanced Configuration - Adding your own favourites YAML Config File Once you have the hang of the basic usage of the workflow, you can get down to configuring extra "Favourites". The favourites have been designed to represent the most used sites you use, the ones that you access day in and day out so that you can get rapid access to them. I have found after setting these up originally I have only added to the list a couple of times as it is expected the list will become relatively static after the first couple of weeks usage. To access the sites configuration: Run rbtsetup then select "Modify Sites Configuration" The default configuration example has examples that you can copy and modify to add your own favourites The two basic styles of configuration are: First Example: YouTube: aliases: "-yt" icon: youtube.png url: "https://www.youtube.com" Second Example: ? "YouTube Video Manager" : aliases: "-yta -ytvm -youtube admin" icon: youtubeadmin.png url: "https://www.youtube.com/my_videos" The key difference between the two above examples are the use of the '? "Site name"' in the second example. When the site name has spaces, you should copy the second example. You can however always opt to use this format regardless of whether the site name has spaces or not if you want to go the easy route. The aliases section can list zero or more aliases (for zero just use "", and do not delete the line). Each alias should be prefixed by a dash '-', and you can have as many keywords as you would like (but remember... less is more). If you are having problems with the site configuration you have created, a great first point is to run it through YAML Lint which can validate if there is anything invalid in your syntax. If that comes back clean and you still have issues please log an issue. Adding the pretty favourite images You will notice in the above example each item references a png icon file. You can save icons that you would like to represent your favourites in the icons folder. This is accessed by typing 'rbtsetup' then selecting "Open icons storage folder". As long as the icons in this folder match what you put on your text you can use a pretty icon. If you would rather not use an image just use 'icon.png' and this will use the default icon for the workflow. Supported Browsers Currently the workflow supports the following browsers. As Firefox does not expose its tabs via Applescript, it is not able to be supported. If someone is a whizz at writing Firefox plugins and would like to collaborate on a plugin to get this to work please feel free to get into contact with me.
