  1. I am trying to automate some things from an external app (Bunch) Are there URL schemes available to call a select Alfred command from outside Alfred? e.g. alfred://run?command=NameOfCommand
  2. Hi, "System" doesn't work for me. All actions are active. But nothing is coming up. Any hints? Thanks...
  3. Hi there, I am relatively new to Alfred workflows and I could not figure out yet, how to pass more than one variable - from let's say an osascript(JS) - back to the Alfred workflow, so that I can use them there as {var:var1}, {var:var2} and so on. Sorry, if this question has been already answered, but I did not find it... Kind regards, Kay
  4. I have Alfred V 3.82 and Powerpack. My Powerpack, containg the license info is using an old email address that I no longer have access to. I need help changing my email address so that I can upgrade and then receive the new information/license via email. Thanks
  5. I am a mega user!!! (...) I found the snippet feature very useful. Just a little suggestion~ Different Snippets set be applied to different apps: The spirit of snippets is to quickly input repetitive commands, which will result in large amount of short commands (e.g. tm stand for "Tomorrow", "cal" stand for calendar). Moreover, the snippets will be used in different applications, which have vastly different commands and features. But if snippets don't identify which app it is working on, then there will be many clashes like for example if I want to input "calculator" in MicrosoftWord.app, then the first three character "cal" will auto expand into "Calendar", etc. So, if each individual snippet set can correspond to some app, then this feature will be really nicer.
  6. mac os 10.14.5 alfred 4.0.3 All removal operations in the software will report errors couldn't be moved to the trash.
  7. I tried searching for this but can't find anyone with the same version. As far as I can tell, I have tweaked the settings and granted permission, but I am missing the rich file preview part when I search on Alfred. That is, for the screenshot on https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/previews/ I am missing the right hand side with the picture and the file info. Hoping for a fix! (I even bought the Powerpack thinking this is a paid feature.)
  8. I see that using the ! command in Alfred will open a new Terminal Session. Is there a way to have Alfred pass the text into the current Terminal session window? Thanks.
  9. Hello,everybody! I write a javascript in alfred workflow, try to return the json and copy the result to clipboard at the same time. Could anybody tell me how to make it?Thanks~ function run(argv) { var temp = argv[0]; var num; num = temp * 1000; return JSON.stringify({items: [ {title: "The number is :", subtitle:num } ]}) //return num;//It dosn't work. }
  10. With Alfred 3, I would drag a file for the Alfred search results, and it would copy the file to my desktop. With Alfred 4, I just discovered this now moves the file to the desktop. I hope I haven't lost too many files to this. I looked through the preferences, and I can't figure out how to change the "dragging to desktop" behavior trigger. Any ideas?
  11. I want to copy something like wp-content/plugins/event-tickets/tests/restv1/TicketNotAccessibleCest.php and convert it to codecept run tests/restv1/TicketNotAccessibleCest.php and paste it the "event-tickets" part is variable, which is why I used regex to match \w When I run with debugging on, it's like the Clipboard (what I think should be {query}) is blank. Screenshot: https://cl.ly/120d35b1fd91 Is that a bug or an error in my workflow? Workflow is here: https://cl.ly/005392a2a9cd Thanks for helping!
  12. Hi, I wonder if there is a shortcut key (or another convenient way) to create a snippet from a clip in history. If not, it'd be nice to have one. Thanks!
  13. Alfred's preferences menu states "Applications are always included in Alfred's default results". I took that to mean that I could safely remove the /Applications folder from the search scope. It turns out that if I do that no applications appear in the search results. I am not sure whether this is working as intended or is a bug. If working as intended there needs to be a simple UI change to highlight the dependency between having /Applications in the search scope and applications appearing in the default results. I read the UI as implying that these were independent. In my case including it brings in a lot gumph from applications that include samples; I want a feature where only application file types are pulled out the Applications folder. If it's a bug I have run the metadata on Safari which is one application that vanishes from my search results:
  14. Hello. I wrote this code for python 3 before discovering that it is not supported by Alfred. Ever since, I have failed to convert it to python 2 and to be able to incorporate it in a workflow. This is the original script that was working just fine: #!/Users/Me/anaconda3/bin/python import feedparser d = feedparser.parse('https://www.aliftaa.jo/PrayTimes.ashx') print(d['entries'][0]['title']) print(d['entries'][1]['title']) print(d['entries'][2]['title']) print(d['entries'][3]['title']) print(d['entries'][4]['title']) print(d['entries'][5]['title']) I changed the shebang to (#!/usr/bin/python) and removed the parentheses in the print functions. However when I run it in terminal (using python2) it says that "list index out of range" and in python launcher 2.7 "No module named feedparser". I'm not experienced with programming so I have been struggling to figure it out on my own but I have failed to do so for the couple past days. Any help is deeply appreciated! Edit: I installed feedparser in the python 2.7 directory and it imports normally in terminal.
  15. “Alfred_4.0.3_1092.dmg” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information. That is what I get when I try to install Alfred. Any help with that please?
  16. Hi, Recent changes to Dropbox means that I cannot use it with my new Mac as I'm over the 3 device limit. What's the best app to use for syncing files Alfred Preferences? Thanks.
  17. Hi, Is there any way to remove or edit single clip in clip history? Thanks!
  18. Hi, Is there an easy way to search files only within a folder by names or content? Would be great if I can assign a keyword to it too! Thanks!
  19. I've seen variations of this question elsewhere, but not exactly what I'm looking for. I've been using Alfred's 'Quit All Apps' to tidy up open applications at the end of my study sessions. But I have a certain app (Tick Tick) that I need to stay open in the background even when it receives a quit command. I'm a complete novice as far as workflows are concerned but what I'd like to do is either i) create a custom workflow that replicates Alfred's 'Quit All Apps' command, but with an exception or ii) find a way to edit the 'Quit All Apps' command so that it excludes Tick Tick (not sure if this is even possible). I'd like to tricker this workflow with a keyword. Any help gratefully received.
  20. Hello all, I defined a variable "input" as Workflow Environment Variable in a workflow. Especially it is the "Leo Dictionary" workflow from Bastian Ohmer. The script in the script filter is: require('leo.php'); $in = "{query}"; $leo = new Leo("ende"); echo $leo->getTranslations($in); with Language: /usr/bin/php, "with input as {query}" and as Escaping "Double Quotes" and "Dollars". I would like to assign "{query}" to my my "input" environment variable in order to be able to use it after the script filter in other action modifiers. Everything I tried failed. E.g.: require('leo.php'); $in = "{query}"; SetEnv $input $in; $leo = new Leo("ende"); echo $leo->getTranslations($in); ==> Code 254: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '$input' (T_VARIABLE) in Command line code on line 4 Any ideas how to solve it? Thank you very much
  21. Fundamentally I am looking to do what I can do with Action:Terminal command (eg run scripts with my normal login environment) in the way that Action:Run script executes in the background without grabbing focus or dumping commands into my existing terminal. Can anyone help with this? P
  22. Hi all, I've gone from using Spotlight (for a few years) to using Alfred - quite liking it. One thing I've noticed is the a printer that I've got setup isn't list when I type it in (in Spotlight it would be listed). Any ideas why this is? Many thanks.
  23. I'd like to search via Alfred for files and folders in my mounted volumes which are usually mounted 24/7. I explicitly added the path of a volume like "/Volumes/..." to Alfred Preferences > Features > Default Results > Search Scope (and "Extras" > Folders is enabled). When I search for known folders or files I do not get any results from this volume. How is this possible? I am using Alfred 4.0.2 (but had the same behavior with any version of Alfred 3, though I finally reach out). Thank you.
  24. Does anyone have an Applescript to run commands in the Alacritty terminal emulator instead of the default one? I've been trying to adapt iterm2 ones but I'm not well versed in Applescript and cannot get it to work.
