  1. Searchio! workflow for Alfred Auto-suggest search results from multiple search engines and languages. There are a few existing workflows that provide auto-suggest results from one or the other search engine, but this includes not only multiple search engines, but also allows you to specify multiple languages/regions for your results. Supports the following search engines/websites: Google Google Images Google Maps YouTube Wikipedia Wiktionary Amazon eBay DuckDuckGo Bing Yahoo! Download and installation Download the latest version from the GitHub releases page or Packal. Usage There are several searches pre-configured. Only some have keywords (i.e. can be used as-is): g — Search Google in system (i.e. default) language m — Search Google Maps in system (i.e. default) language gi — Search Google Images in system (i.e. default) language w — Search Wikipedia in system (i.e. default) language wn — Search Wiktionary in system (i.e. default) language a — Search Amazon in system (i.e. default) language. If your system language is English, this will search Use -l uk in the Script Filter to search or -l ca to search yt — Search YouTube in system (i.e. default) language searchio [<query>] — Show settings and list of supported search engines. Currently, the only setting is a toggle to also show the <query> in the results list (default: No). searchiohelp — Open help file in your browser You can add a keyword to (and edit) one of the existing examples or add your own searches. For details on how to do that, see the GitHub page. Licensing, thanks The code in this workflow is released under the MIT Licence. The icons belong to the respective search engines. This workflow uses the Alfred-Workflow library and docopt (both MIT-licensed).
  2. contacts

    Hello I'm a new advanced user on alfred with powerpack. I use also contact module. A missing feature would be to be able to find in contact details. Some use cases : * looking for identity on a missing call : I can not look for a contact from its phone number * looking for a company contact, when I've forgotten his name * looking for a note : I look for a contact from a keyword stored in contact notes Would be great if it would be available, in particular linked with Google Contacts. We can find this feature, for example, in dashboard pane in macos with contacts widget. This feature is available on Contact Filter plugin but is not resilient : not available to have a kind of "LIKE" operator : if phone number is stored as "+337 27 36 356 22", you will find nothing if you type "7273635622" or "+337273635622" ... Regards
  3. I've created a new Workflow that allows you to search files on KickAssTorrents (KAT mirror configurable), select a desired file from Alfred context menu and automatically send the download action to a Transmission server. You can find the Workflow (based on a mix of scripts and workflows available) on Packal: All you have to do is to configure it by settings the requested variables related to your Transmission server.
  4. Hi everyone, Just starting to play with Alfred Workflows a little bit and I find it amazing! I created a very simple workflow to launch a youtube search, so that instead of : finding Chrome Cmd + T Entering Waiting for page to load Click in the search input field Type in your search Enter Wait for the page to load It becomes : Ctrl + Space Type in yt your search Enter Wait for the page to load I timed it and it now takes me 5seconds from the moment I want to search for something to the moment I have the search results displayed, compared to 30sec before.. depending of how many times a day you research something on youtube, it adds up to a few minutes gained every day Hope you guys enjoy it. You can download the workflow here : Note : I know this is a very (very) simple workflow, but I searched the forum and couldn't find anything, so may be it can help someone out some day. Mehdi
  5. Description Alfred 2 workflow to search and create notes in Evernote. Search Keywords ens to search in every note field ens @ to search in a selected notebook ens # to search notes with a selected tags You can use ent (search in titles only) or enr (search in reminders) or entodo (search to-do notes) or enrec (search notes updated within a week) or enu (search notes with a source URL) instead of ens. You can select multiple tags to fine tune your searching. Just add a second hash sign and select or type the tag e.g. ens #tag1 #tag2 :my query In addition, you can select a single notebook then tags too e.g. ent @notebook #tag1 #tag2 :my query Note that, if you want to select a notebook and/or tags, the query goes after the colon sign as seen above. Actions Return key to open the note Shift key to preview the note Option key to set a reminder Control key to paste the note text content to the top most application Function key to open the note URL Command key to append text (from clipboard, selected text or typed) or selected file(s) in Finder. After pressing the Command key a new Alfred window will be shown so you will be able to select the text source and the action: Return key will append without date Option key with append with current date Hint: You can also use the Command key to only add tags to a note. To do so, type or select a tag and don't type anything after the colon then select the source "Type a Note" e.g. enn #tag : Note that Alfred Fallback Search is also supported (you have to add it in Alfred 2 Preferences>Features>Default Results, then click Setup fallback results button). Create Keyword enn You can optionally type the note title or, for a more complex creation, follow the syntax below: @Notebook #tag1 #tag2 !reminder :Title @notebook: after typing @ a list of notebooks will be displayed then select one or type it; the default will be used if omitted #tags: after typing # a list of tags will be displayed then select one or type a new one (multiple tags are supported, type each one after a hash sign) !reminder: after typing an exclamation point a list of reminder suggestions will be displayed then select one or type a custom reminder such as in 4 days or 05/01/2014 or 05/01/2014 at 2:00 Title: at the end, after a colon (or the second colon if you are adding time in your reminder) Note that items of the syntax are optional, however the syntax has to end with a colon, with or without typing the note title e.g. #tag1 : Note Content Source From clipboard From selected text Typed directly in Alfred From Safari or Google Chrome URL From message(s) selected in Mail app From file(s) selected in Finder app: you can create one note with files or one note for each selected files. Alfred File Browser also supported. Type a Note also supports multiple lines and, in this case, the first line will be the title of the note e.g. enn Line 1 /n Line 2 /n Line 3 Actions Return key: create a note Control Key: create a note and open it Command key: append text or file to a note Option key: append text to a note with current date How to Append Highlight one of the note content source e.g. From Clipboard Optionally type tags and a reminder e.g. #tag1 #tag2 !tomorrow hold command key and hit return key select a note from the list (search by title only) and hit return key Mail Message subject as the note title Message received date as the note creation date Message Link as the note source URL A short header (e.g. sender) A plain text version of the email content Preferences Bring Alfred and type the keyword enpref: Quick Look: select Card (Evernote default) or HTML (entire note content) Search wildcard: select Manual (type an asterisk after the query string) or Automatic (may be slower) Download Evernote 9 beta 2 Release date: 09 Aug 2016 Made in OS X 10.11.5 Requires Evernote 6 from Requires Alfred 3 Download now For Alfred 2 Version 8.992 Release date: 20 Feb 2015 Made in OS X 10.10.2 Requires Evernote 6.06 from Requires Alfred 2.6 or later Download now What's new? 9 beta 2: bugs fixed and Evernote API updated 9 beta 1: Alfred 3 support 8.991: Evernote 6.06 initial support 8.9: Yosemite beta and note templates support 8.7: interface bugs fixed 8.6: enn issue fixed Improved reminder time support e.g. Tomorrow at 2:00 Added support for tags that start with a hash sign e.g. #Home Added support for tags that start with an at sign e.g. @Work Added support for notebooks that start with an at sign e.g. @Notes Workflow should be faster in most of cases When appending from a search result now you can hold Option key to include current date Type a Note supports multiple lines (first line will be the title) e.g. enn Line 1 /n Line 2 New Keyword enl and its hotkey to load the last search query Added support for some of Alfred 2.3 new features Workflow version history here.
  6. Hey all, I have just published the Alfred Confluence workflow. The Alfred Confluence workflow let's you find and open Confluence pages and blog posts from Alfred. Once installed and set up, just type c <search terms> ('c' standing for Confluence). Download & Links: Latest Release: Docs: Packal: I've tested with Alfred 3 and on macOS Sierra. Hope you find it useful. Cheers, -Stefan
  7. How can I accomplish this? Folder A contains folder B. Folder B is pretty important to me in general but contains a ton of subfolders and documents that flood my search results. If I add folder A to my scope, everything from folder B floods my search results. If I remove folder A, I can't find folder B.
  8. What does it do? YouVersion Suggest is a workflow which allows you to search across the YouVersion Bible for any verse, chapter, or book (in any version). Why do I want it? I created YouVersion Suggest because I wanted to great simplify the effort required to look up any Bible reference (be it a verse or chapter or book in a particular version). As a believer in Christ, I think that quick and easy access to Scripture is important, and so that's exactly what I've tried to do. How does it work? Type the yv keyword in Alfred, followed by a space and a phrase representing the bible reference you wish to find. The phrase can be part of a book name, chapter, verse, or range of verses. You may also include an optional version (translation) at the end of your query. As you type, YouVersion Suggest will display a list of suggestions matching your query. Examples 'luke' => Luke 'eph 3' => Ephesians 3 '1t3e' => 1 Thessalonians 3 (ESV), 1 Timothy 3 (ESV) 'mat 6:34 nlt' => Matthew 6:34 (NLT) '1 co 13.4-7' => 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 What versions/translations are available? Currently, English is the only supported language, but the following versions are all supported: AMP, ASV, BOOKS, CEB, CEV, CEV, CEVUK, CPDV, DARBY, DRA, ESV, ERV, GNB, GNBDC, GNBDK, GNT, GNTD, GWT, HCSB, ISR98, KJV, LEB, MSG, NIV, NIVUK, NLT, NET, NKJV, NCV, NASB, NABRE, NIRV, OJB, RV1885, TLV, WEB YouVersion Suggest uses NIV as the default translation, but of course, you can easily specify your preferred version when searching. Where can I download it? You can download the latest version from Packal. I hope you like it!
  9. I made a workflow to search the Ulysses database for the new Ulysses III. This feature is missing from the app itself (for now) so I put together this workflow to get around that. The workflow simply adds search scopes for Ulysses' "sheet" and "group" filetypes. As a bonus, there's also an "Open in Ulysses" File Action included with the workflow. It works on .txt and .rtf documents, which will come into Ulysses parsed as Markdown. Read more on my site or download Search Ulysses 3.alfredworkflow now.
  10. Huge thank you to Vitor without whom this workflow wouldn't exist : You can download it from here. Or you can view the GitHub page of it with more descriptions of it. Essentially this is an Alfred wrapper over a note taking project I am making and maintaining. It allows you to instantly visit any mind map that I have made. I have been working on this project for the past month and will be updating and maintaining it with more and more quality content as time passes. To get a better sense of what kind of mind maps do exist out there, try out searching for 'alfred' or 'workflows' or 'vim' For more, take a look at the project itself and go through the interactive mind map to get more context of how everything connects.
  11. # 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 for latest version. I hope you like it!
  12. Hi! I want to copy a string like "§ABC §DEFGH §Test" into my clipboard and want to paste it like "ABC, DEFGH, Test" at another place. Can someone help me how to solve this? thank you
  13. This workflow helps search your Google Chrome/Chromium bookmarks realy fast with unicode support. For more info please see:
  14. Has anyone done any workflows for Daylite? I am trying to do one that will search Daylite from Alfred with a keyword like "dl project". It would be great if it would display results in Alfred, but if it could go to Daylite and display them that would work too. Also, adding a quick note, contact, or task would be great too. perhaps if you could type in "dl" it would display a list of those actions in Alfred. Any help would be appreciated as I am having no luck Thanks! Ethan
  15. I frequently use Alfred's built-in search for LinkedIn. This morning the built-in search is resulting in a 404 at LinkedIn. I am guessing Microsoft is changing how search works now that they have acquired LinkedIn. A successful search in LinkedIn today returns a URL of the from:{query}. I am guessing this is different from the built-in search. If I create a custom search with this search URL it works fine. Is there a way to edit the built-in search to work with this new URL format?
  16. Hi guys, is there any way to only search for contacts if you for instance type "c" first (or any prefix). Like "c john smith" would give me the contact viewer with john smith, while just "john smith" would simply launch the browser/search engine? (I don't want to enable "contacts" in default search results, because it would clog up the results, but I would also like the built-in contacts handlers).
  17. I have 2 custom web searches for google drive "gd" and "gdu" where "gdu" has a {query} in the url keyword search url gd gdu 2{query}/my-drive They both work as expected alone. but when they are both enabled the "Enter" choice is always the most previous one that was used. Meaning if the last one I used was gdu 2 (which worked) When I type in the second one "gd"it completes to gdu and waits for the query input even though it has the EXACT query. CASE Types in "gd" first option provided is: gdu second option provided: gd Presses enter: typed in text changes to "gdu" pressing enter with "gd" autocompletes to "gdu" and waits for input. Question: Is there a way for exact matches to populate the FIRST result in Alfred?? What I want no matter what the previous query was. CASE Types in "gd" Executes Just starting with Alfred (Launchers in general, other than spotlight) and I'm really liking it.
  18. I'd like a workflow that can search Microsoft OneNote for Mac (notebooks, sections, pages) and possibly also create notes. Alternatively, how would I be able to build this myself?
  19. Hey Everyone I'm trying to figure out if Alfred has a specific functionality. Like many of you, I do a crazy amount of email, and I'm constantly searching for something in a browser, copying the URL, and then pasting in an email client. My dream is something like MixMax (chrome + gmail plugin that allows '/' search), or the command+k shortcut in google docs (see image below), which works in any applications. My question - is there any way using Alfred, to enter a google search term, see the top 10 results, choose one, and then paste that URL, without ever leaving Alfred (and never opening a browser)? Thanks for any help! (PS - I understand that the example below is creating a hyperlink. It's just for illustration. I'm interested in pasting the actual URL in any context.)
  20. I'm a heavy user of the custom search of alfred.. however many of my custom searches are based on the same domain ie .. sometimes my domain changes.. ie to another_domain/custom_search_2 .. another_domain/custom_search_n but everything else stays intact.. can i possibly mass change them on alfred? (i've tried something like this before with chrome with mixed results, see with google chrome the search engines are stores in a .sqlite file, which I can simply change by using sql queries.. i'm hoping alfred stores their custom searches in a database file or something i can edit externally.
  21. 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: "" Second Example: ? "YouTube Video Manager" : aliases: "-yta -ytvm -youtube admin" icon: youtubeadmin.png url: "" 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. Chrome Safari Chromium Chrome Canary Webkit History Version 1.1 - Bugfix and feature releaseFix - Tab icon for Safari did not display Feature - Add "ctrl" key modified to force reload tab on opening Feature - Provide feedback on settings initialisation and sync Feature - Enable favourite searching by URL Version 1.0 - Initial Release of Rapid Browser Tabs for Alfred Version 0.9 - Forked from Search Safari and Chrome Tabs workflow Feb 2014 release Credits Rapid Browser Tabs for Alfred workflow created by Stuart Ryan. If you would like to get into contact you can do so via: @StuartCRyan on Twitter Stuart Ryan on LinkedIn Technical Notebook Blog Search Tabs on Safari and Chrome workflow created by Clinton Strong represented the initial stages for this workflow.

  22. Instant Search This workflow is the translation of Brett Terpstra's LaunchBar script for Alfred. You have to have his Search Link Service installed. For more information, go to Packal:
  23. This is my first ever workflow that I shared with people. It is a simple list filter with a lot of different links to various websites for asking questions on stack overflow, creating threads on reddit and few more. Here is the repository with it and here is the download link. Description : a simple list filter for various online web submissions including asking questions on stack overflow creating threads on various subreddits on reddit asking questions on certain forums creating github repo / gist and any other web submission I personally use It all goes into one list filter and from there on you can filter with a set of prefixes. More specifically : s: prefix will filter for asking questions on any one of stack exchange sites. r: prefix will filter for creating new threads on various reddit subreddits f: prefix will filter for asking questions on various forums like Alfred Forum g: prefix will currently allow you to quickly create new repository or new gist w: prefix is for all other websites like creating new hacker news thread or new codepen I kind of wish that list filter would allow the same fuzzy matching that file filters provide. That is in file filter, this matches : That is I can kind of skip the dot and go straight to what comes after. Same with semicolons. In List Filter, this doesn't work. That is if I have these few entries prefixed with w : I can't do this : Nothing gets matched. Aside from this, I am pretty happy with the workflow, hope some of you will find some use out of it too.
  24. The initial motive is to automatically use current front browser's site for site search. Current it includes google suggestion, instant search, site search and related search. Suggestions are welcome. Check it out in Github: It is also an example to use bundler to include gems in an alfred workflow. The command is bundle install --standalone. Usage 1. Search Suggestion Keyword g: provide google search suggestions based on {query}. 2. Instant Search Keyword gi: get instant google search results in Alfred based on {query}. 3. Site Search Keyword gs: get instant google search results of front browser's site in Alfred based on {query}. Supported browsers are: Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, OmniWeb, etc. You can use query if you do not want to search for current front browser's site. 4. Related Search Keyword related: get related google search results of front browser's site in Alfred based on {query}. Supported browsers are: Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, OmniWeb, etc. You can use query if you do not want to search for current front browser's site. Installation Two ways are provided: You can download the Google.alfredworkflow and import to Alfred 2. This method is suitable for regular users. You can git clone or fork this repository and use rake install and rake uninstall to install. This method create a symlink to the alfred workflow directory: "~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows". This method is suitable for developers.

  25. So I have switched over from Quicksilver because occasionally it will open everything when I run a search. Alfred doesn't seem nearly as smart but I am probably missing something, typing in "Fox" doesn't pull up firefox nor can I arrow down through results. Not a problem in Quicksilver and I get other options.
