  1. Is it possible to create a snippet that includes an image, and/or different fonts? Ideally, I would like to create a snippet that inserts an image of my signature, followed by my address in smaller fonts.
  2. I know people have requested image support in the clipboard history feature in Alfred. That would be great, but I would really like to see support for maintaining text formatting (rich text) in the snippets and clipboard history. As of now all text is converted into plain text in the history and snippets. It would great if formatting were not lost.
  3. Is there any way to import over my TextExpander snippets into Alfred v3? I found this, but Github is a bit beyond me, no idea how to get started.
  4. Add by options to disable snippet collections without having to delete them from Alfred preferences. When making a presentation, there are many times that I need to copy and paste large text blocks or code snippets in front of a large audience. Snippets are a great way to paste this text without having to switch applications or store everything in a text file. However, I have different demos that all have similar snippets and would like to enable only the specific snippets for a certain demo so I can easily query them without conflicting with a different collection.

Most of the libraries on that list are either abandoned or incredibly outdated. While they might still work, they might also work poorly with Alfred 3 or have been obsoleted by it. All the libraries on this list are (at the time of the last edit) up-to-date and their developers are either still supporting them or forum regulars. That means any problems you find and suggestions you have are likely to be addressed. If there’s any library you think belongs in (or should be removed from) this list, leave a reply below. I’ll evaluate it and then delete your comment (so the thread can be kept tidy).
  6. Hi guys, I use snippets a lot in Alfred 3, and I badly need a quicker way to edit existing snippets. They're so awesome! Please see 1st screenshot: if Cmd+S on selected snippet would open it directly (2nd screenshot) within Alfred preferences, that would be a simple but fantastic improvement! I'm suggesting Cmd+S for this because it is very similar to the already existing Cmd+S shortcut which transforms a clipping from clipboard history into a new snippet. Basically hitting Cmd+S would mean: "create a new snippet or open it for editing if it already exists". That would feel very intuitive! After hitting Cmd+S, this window would popup to make you able to quickly update the existing snippet. Thanks! Vermeer
  7. I'm using a lot of very similar Snippets (email addresses for projects). It would be very useful to be able to right-click on an existing Snippet and "Duplicate" it, so I can tweak the text in a new Snippet. Also, as I create a lot of Snippets, the ability to create an Alfred shortcut that would take me straight to the Snippets tab would be useful too. Thanks!
  8. I frequently use a specific date format that's not able to be achieved using the dynamic placeholders for snippets (without changing my system date formatting) : https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/clipboard/dynamic-placeholders/ Specifically, I prefer to have yymmdd as a snippet (it's a compliant file name without punctuation and sorts naturally). When making sure I wasn't filing a duplicate, I came across a different but related request, just for the year: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1021-snippet-year-placeholder/?hl=%2Bdate+%2Bsnippet So my request is that of enabling more granular date formatting... perhaps breaking it into components such that I might be able to use: {year:small}{month:small}{day:small} Actual tag names aren't as important as the functionality, so something already known and documented would be more flexible, such as Python's strftime's spec: https://docs.python.org/2/library/datetime.html#strftime-and-strptime-behavior ie: {date:'%y%m%d'} That would make me so happy.
  9. Hello! Snippets: Several times a day I experience this behavior: working on some text I type shortcut for Alfred snippet and instead of snippet text I get current clipboard contents. Clipboard: When I want to paste something from history, I open history, select needed clip, press enter - and nothing happens. And then if I press cmd+V again only then paste occurs. Also happens quite often. Please advise. Thanks! Grigory
  10. This forum has seen a lot of posts recently (including my own) which are basically geared towards allowing Alfred to replace TextExpander in the wake of the Smile pricing/sync kerfuffle -- ideas like allowing tabs/form filling, input within snippet expansion, snippets triggering workflows/scripts, case sensitivity in snippets, etc. Thinking about what it would take for me to be able to replace the 250+ snippets I have in TE with Alfred snippets, there are two killer features....1) is snippets to trigger scripts (mostly for date math)....I suspect this is in the works....2) is the ability to use my snippets on iOS. As far as I've seen, this hasn't come up, but it seems like an area where Alfred could really raise the bar. Smile has a pretty widely adopted API ( https://smilesoftware.com/textexpander-ios/apps) but the TE keyboard itself is pretty slow and generic. So I'd like to see an Alfred iOS keyboard, either as part of Alfred Remote or a separate app. It could just do snippet expansion on iOS using Alfred's synced snippets. If it could run scripts, this would be even better. And for the icing on the cake, maybe it could communicate with Alfred on OS X, run a query and return the results (the kind of two-way communication I think people were hoping to see emerge with Alfred Remote). OR....now that Smile has lowered their price on TE 6 to $20/year for existing users, and $40/year or so for new users, maybe it would make sense to not invest development resources into snippets. For me at least (as an existing user) the revised TE pricing makes switching a lot less urgent and compelling -- the main concern is the need to rely on Smile's sync service. Hence the subject line....if Alfred is going to go all in with snippets and replace TextExpander, it seems like an iOS keyboard is going to be necessary for many users....if that's not on the roadmap, it might not be worth prioritizing snippet features. Thoughts?
  11. In light of replacing other text expansion tools with Alfred, I am missing two features in the beta version of Alfred 3: I need the feature of having a text entry field after having triggered a snippet so that I can fill in missing information "at expansion time", e.g. a snippet like "Dear {name}, ..." should allow me to enter a replacement for {name} during expansion of the snippet. There is support for dynamic placeholders, but it seems that this is only for date, time and clipboard and not for "on expansion time" values since they would require a UI to enter the missing values. Here is an example from another implementation (Dash): https://www.dropbox.com/s/ztnzp22reoa8b9l/Sample_custom_dynamic_snippet.png?dl=0 I need (basic) rich text snippets which allow me to format parts of my snippet in bold, as list item etc. It looks like I can format the complete snippet as a whole only as of now. I am really looking forward to the next iteration of the snippets feature.
  12. I find create snippets cumbersome, so I often don't do it. Is there an easier way to create snippets on the fly than opening up alfred preferences and filling things in there? It really seems like there should be a workflow where I can take something in my clipboard history and quickly make it into a saved snippet.
  13. I use Alfred as my main clipboard history tool, and it's very handy for re-pasting something I recently copied, and then copied over. However, it's a clunky process to open the clipboard history -- is there any way to make it accessible from within the Alfred main window, so I can select clippings via a Cmd+number combo?
  14. Hi I am trying to create a snippet to name some files and I want the current week number. I tried using {date: week of year} and doesn't seem to return the right value. If someone has figured this out, please let me know. Thank you
  15. I've been using Alfred Powerpack for months now and enjoy the snippet functionality. But I have not figured out exactly what the use case is for the "snippet keyword" as circled in the attached screenshot. What exactly does that do? I don't see an explanation in the documentation. Thanks!
  16. I can't get alfred snippets to work properly with punto switcher. Prerequisites: Alfred is on in accessibility Punto Switcher is on accessibility The bug: 1. Type word in english 2. Press Punto switcher button to convert last word to other language layout 3. type any alfred snippet shortcode Expected result: A text snippet is placed Actual result: My last item from clipboard history is placed Gif of the bug is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ey0ijpa67gqza1j/snippet bug.gif?dl=0 Please help! I need alfred snippets and punto switcher to work together!
  17. When I activate a Snippet all I get is the contents of the clipboard. If I quit CopyPaste Pro then the snippet works as expected. Is there anything I can do to stop this happening? I don’t want to stop using CopyPaste Pro. I’m new to Alfred so I could be barking up the wrong tree. Emyr
  18. Hi there, I just bought Alfred mainly for the snippets function, and while I was sad to find out that they don't actually get copied over to iOS, I might stick with the app as it's sexy and handy on Mac. However, auto-expand doesn't seem to work. 1. The expansion in the Security Settings of MacOS is installed. 2. I have not remapped CMD + V 3. I have activated Auto-Expand for the snippets I'm trying to test. 4. I have not excluded the app I'm testing this in (Safari). 5. I don't get a secure input warning. 6. I have tested mid text expansion, neither are working. Screenshot of my settings attached.
  19. Alfred trims trailing spaces and tabs in keyword. Fix it please.
  20. Would love to have a way to import snippets already created in other apps into Alfred? I'm thinking apps like aText, TextExpander, etc?
  21. A snippet pack to make putting the true unicode equivalents of things like :sparkles:, :lipstick:, and other emojis used in git commits easier to type. It gives them names relevant to coding. Of course the official gitmoji has a CLI but suppose you want to use an IDE or don't want to install npm but already have Alfred Powerpack, or you just want a more inline way way of adding emoji, or you want the emoji to work with $git log (e.g. :sparkles: will not be interpreted by git log); if so, this is for you. Examples: :sparkles: -> :add: Because one uses ✨ when adding new features :penguin: -> :lin: Because one uses 🐧 when making linux related changes :checkered_flag: -> :win: Because one uses 🏁 for windows related changes :heavy_plus_sign: -> :+dep: Because one uses ➕ when adding dependencies etc.. Added benefit of making emojis appear with $git log because they are just unicode after using this. Inspired by: https://gitmoji.carloscuesta.me/ And also: https://github.com/atom/atom/blob/7929e261a0d6e78ff4ca5196c8b385946e64dbd9/CONTRIBUTING.md#git-commit-messages Full mapping details and download is available on the github
  22. I would like to use the snippet feature in MacVim as well but it doesn't work. I think this is due to MavVim not using a plain stock cocoa edit widget but something else. Is there anything how I could get it to work? Are there are any workflows, or simple way to make Snippets & MacVim work together?
  23. I've taken to using snippets to store URLs to animated gifs - for easy referencing and pasting into chats etc. What would be *great*, would be to support quicklook by pressing a configurable hotkey, within the Snippets Viewer, if the snippet contents is a URL, to preview the GIF - although this would be great for previewing any kind of URL. Cheers, can't live without Alfred!
  24. I have enabled Alfred 3's accessibility in System Preferences, I have "Automatically Expand Snippets by Keyword" checked in Alfred's preferences, and I have several snippets defined with "Autoexpand" selected for those snippets. They don't autoexpand. They still work with the "snip" keyword, but they don't expand on their own in Textedit or in Notes. I am sad.
  25. Just started using snippets in A3 and love it - much faster than AText which I was using before and have now removed permanently. However, despite turning "Expand snippets mid-string" off and rebooting several times, A3 still insists on expanding mid-string. for instance whenever i try to start tmux i get tomorrowux! Sierra, MBA 11" Any help?
