  1. In the Contacts prefpane, it appears that Alfred uses a http:// link by default. It's minor, but this should probably be a secure https:// link. It may also be beneficial to update this preference to support opening contacts in Apple Maps.
  2. I updated one of my Workflows and renamed a Workflow Environment Variable, which I happened to use in an Open URL block: The console reported success: [09:27:09.006] Product Hunt Toolkit[Hotkey] Processing complete [09:27:09.021] Product Hunt Toolkit[Hotkey] Passing output '' to Open URL ...but I actually got this mysterious error (-50) — and when tapping on the ❓, got a blank helper window: Suggestion: It would be great if Alfred caught these errors and reported that a Workflow Environment Variable was unset or missing, directing me to the offending block in the Workflow editor.
  3. Alfred's web search was successful, but no matter how hard I tried, it didn't bring up autocomplete. Below is your web search address, and upload a workflow that didn't work before! Help me! web search url : https://namu.wiki/w/{query} workflow file url : https://d.pr/f/ih4jKh
  4. Version: Alfred 4.1 [1167] I would like to be able to toggle file visibility from Alfred's file explorer, or from the "File Search" tab in Alfred-Preferences. As far as I can tell, Alfred cannot see invisible files at all*. Is this a safety precaution or a feature I somehow missed? Even in Finder, it's just a matter of pressing "shift+cmd+."... * Edit: While Alfred can see files marked hidden by `chflags hidden {filename}`, it can't see filenames prefixed with a "." (as in `~/.bashrc`) -- at least, not in any straightforward way that I'm aware of.
  5. Keyboard maestro has a basic implementation for regex snippets and I was thinking it might be cool for Alfred to take it on. If I could be in whatever text editor/chatroom/whatever and have code shorthand to write something I useful, it opens up some interesting productivity opportunities. Currently with KM I use (⌥a) å.fill(text,count) to make text repeat a certain number of times. Useful when spamming texts haha! Anyway, let me know what you think.
  6. Hi community I'm not sure if this is the right section for this but i'll give it a shot. Are there any reasons Alfred doesn't utilize some sort of IRC hookup? A lot of this stuff going on in these forums is somewhat geeky and would fit right into the FreeNode network. I bet workflow developers would benefit from each other in (almost) realtime as an alternative to these forums. It could also attract potential customers i believe. It'd require almost nothing from the Alfred team to set this up. I have over 10 years of IRC experience and I'm willing to do some work to make it beneficial if the community can see the potential. Enjoy the weekend folks
  7. Suggestion: In Alfred Preferences/Remote, not only do I want to customize the items in each page but I would love to be able to drag and drop them in a different order. Just a thought..............
  8. I created a workflow that displays search suggestions for soundcloud.com in alfred. Screenshots + Download: https://github.com/blaww/SoundCloud-Suggestions-Alfred-Workflow You have to have python and the soundcloud api installed!

  9. Hey there Andrew! I was just rewriting one of my workflows when I had a sudden thought about what could be a neat feedback feature. If it's doable, it might be a little extra interface sugar if a worker of flow could flag a feedback item as the one that's automatically selected. For example, I'm outputting a list of Finder flag colors, but would like to be able to imply that the file is already red. Rather than adding another informational item or something along those lines, it would be nifty if I could add something like default="yes" to the red item. I don't have any kind of sense of how complex that would wind up being, since I know Alfred always starts from the top of the results list, but thought I'd throw it out there.
  10. Hey Alfred team, I would love it if we could have folders for our workflows. Once you get a bunch of them (especially ones you don't need to change a lot) it really is a messy list of workflows that the addition of folders could fix. Thanks a lot. Seriously love this app.
  11. I've been working on a brief workflow that grabs a list of FTP favorites from Transmit and serves them up as Alfred results. Ideally, actioning any one of these results would mount the specified server as a external drive. So far though, I've been unable to get Alfred to load the generated XML as results. Below, I've provided some details that might be useful to pin-point the issue: The workflow is PHP-based, though it also relies on a bit of Applescript to fetch the list of favorites from Transmit. (Much of the code & concepts come courtesy @jdfwarrior!) I thought the issue might be related to the Applescript – returning invalid XML, or maybe nothing at all. I tried writing the generated XML to a file (instead of echoing it back to Alfred, as per the code below.) The output seemed valid but I am still unable to get Alfred to load the XML into its results list! It just gets stuck on the pre-defined loading text. I hope this all makes sense. Any and all help is much appreciated! PHP: /* FOLLOWING CODE IS ENTERED DIRECTLY INTO ALFRED'S "SCRIPT FILTER" ** EDITOR AND ISN'T WRAPPED IN <?PHP?> TAGS. THE FILTER REQUIRES A ** SPACE-SEPARATED ARGUMENT, THE INTERPRETER IS SET TO PHP, AND I ** LIMITED THE 'ESCAPE {QUERY}' OPTION TO DOUBLE QUOTES AND DOLLARS. */ require_once('extension_utils.php'); $utils = new ExtensionUtils(); $results = array(); $query = stripcslashes("{query}"); $favesGet = exec('osascript transmit_actions.scpt'); $favesObj = explode(', ',$favesGet); $i = 0; foreach( $favesObj as $fave ): $i++; $item = array( 'uid' => 'fave-'.$i, 'arg' => $fave, 'title' => $fave, 'subtitle' => 'Mount '.$fave.' as volume...', 'icon' => 'icon.png', 'valid' => 'yes' ); array_push( $results, $item ); endforeach; if ( count( $results ) > 0 ): echo $xml; endif; /* IN ORDER TO TEST/DEBUG THE XML OUTPUT ** I REPLACED THIS FINAL IF-STATEMENT WITH ** THE FOLLOWING CODE: */ // $xml = $utils->arrayToXml($results); // $path = "output.txt"; // $file = fopen($path, 'w') or die("can't open file"); // fwrite($file,$xml); // fclose($file); Applescript: -- FILE NAME: transmit_actions.scpt -- -- APPLESCRIPT THAT RETURNS A LIST OF THE -- NAMES OF FTP FAVORITES FROM TRANSMIT: --------------------------------------------- set names to {} tell application "Transmit" repeat with fave in favorites set faveName to name of fave set names to names & faveName end repeat end tell tell application "Transmit" to quit return names XML Output: (Abbreviated and formatted...) <?xml version="1.0"?> <items> <item uid="fave-1" arg="Christian et Christine"> <title>Christian et Christine</title> <subtitle>Mount Christian et Christine as volume...</subtitle> <icon>icon.png</icon> <valid>yes</valid> </item> <item uid="fave-2" arg="Clifford Wright"> <title>Clifford Wright</title> <subtitle>Mount Clifford Wright as volume...</subtitle> <icon>icon.png</icon> <valid>yes</valid> </item>
  12. On a workflow I am in the process of perfecting I am having a problem with the Post Notification, it runs before the php script does, so there is no output {query}. I think there should be a way to have optional delay timers for every part of the workflow. Also, there should be a way to trigger parts of the workflow.
