  2. I remade my chrome-workflow built with awgo. Previous workflow (alfred-chrome-workflow)'s features are reimplemented by go language, some useful features added including tab searching, browser switching, profile switching. https://github.com/jopemachine/alfred-chromium-workflow I appreciate to awgo's author @deanishe I'd never have made it without this awesome library. Any idea or feedback would be appreciated
  3. This workflow allows you to search browser tabs from Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi & Safari. GitHub: https://github.com/epilande/alfred-browser-tabs Download: https://github.com/epilande/alfred-browser-tabs/releases/latest/download/Browser-Tabs.alfredworkflow Commands chrome tabs {query} – Fetch tabs from Google Chrome and filter based on query. brave tabs {query} – Fetch tabs from Brave Browser and filter based on query. vivaldi tabs {query} – Fetch tabs from Vivaldi and filter based on query. safari tabs {query} – Fetch tabs from Safari and filter based on query. Copy to clipboard Holding the CTRL key while selecting an item will copy the selected tab URL to your clipboard. Demo Screenshot of workflow
  4. Like Safari Assistant, but for Firefox. Download from GitHub. Search Firefox bookmarks Search Firefox browsing history Run bookmarklets Activate & close tabs Add you own custom scripts The workflow requires you to install a corresponding Firefox extension in order to communicate with Firefox. After installing the workflow, run ffass > Install Firefox Extension to get the extension. Once the extension is installed, everything should just work. The workflow is fairly customisable. You can add your own URL actions via scripts, set custom icons, and assign URL & tab actions and bookmarklets to alternate hotkeys. See the documentation for details.
  5. Hi Alfred Team, I'm a new user and have difficulties browsing my default browser chrome after I used search via Alfred. MacOS: Catalina Chrome: Version 81.0.4044.129 Alfred 4.0.9 [1144] Step to reproduce: - call Alfred via Alt-Space - type any text I'd like to find + enter - result: new tab opens with expected google search result BUT: I can't close this tab with Cmd-W, only by clicking with mouse hover on any link, the pointer doesn't change to hand pointer - still arrow pointer. I need to do double-click (instead of one-click) to open target hyperlink open another page in this tab doesn't resolve the issue Workaround that helps to exit from this mode: with Cmd-Tab I switch to any other application and once again Cmd-Tab to return. After that target tab of chrome works as usual Sample video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xf2od2cjxd3qngq/standardSearchViaAlfred.mov?dl=0 And this very frustrated! Interesting note: I have PopClip application with Alfred extension. So when I select target text, and populate it to Alfred. I only need to press Enter and get result page. After this userflow, I don't have strange mode and behaviour is absolute normal. As in case of normal navigation Sample video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fig6aekeaux5k8v/alfredWithPopClip.mov?dl=0 Any idea to help?
  6. Loads iCloud tabs from all connected devices and lists them as links. Current device is excluded. It works by copying the ~/Library/SyncedPreferences/com.apple.Safari.plist file to a temp location, converting to XML then parsing the result. https://github.com/kmarchand/iCloudTabsAlfredWorkflow

  8. Hello, I rely on Alfred exclusively for traversing my file system - opening files and folders with Finder, that is. The problem is that every new folder that I open - unless it already is - is opened in a new tab. Since I jump to and from my Mac's directories like a wild ferret, a simple browsing session results in dozens of Finder tabs. Is there ANY way to make folders open in a current/most recent Finder tab? This would be a real lifesaver. Path Finder behaves likes this out of the box and it's really nice, but the rest of that software is so buggy I couldn't use it anymore. Thanks!
  9. I want to create a workflow that would open a few urls as pinned tab in my default browsers. I have tried with one url and it seems there is no option to do it. Workflow's file is accessible here : https://www.dropbox.com/s/geruuw94ac1ow1g/Open_As_Pinned_Tab.alfredworkflow?dl=0 Thank you.
  10. 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.

  12. This is a workflow adapted from the works of gekkoh's iTunes lyrics search, but this one searches ultimate-guitar.com for the current song playing in iTunes. Hope you like it! If you wanna change it, feel free to make it better. https://www.dropbox.com/s/cabsm6n3gcqysq2/iTunes%20Chords%20Search.alfredworkflow
  13. This workflow allows you to view and open iCloud tabs from all your devices (except the current one). Unlike this workflow, my workflow also allows you to narrow the results using keywords. For example, entering "itabs apple iphone" will return only iCloud tabs whose page title or URL contains both "apple" and "iphone". You can also quickly open all your iCloud tabs using keyword "alltabs". Download This workflow uses the awesome Alfred Objective-C framework.
  14. Simple query search for ultimate-guitar.com. http://cl.ly/3h0y2Z3N042G
  15. Hi. I have noticed a small bug annoying bug. When I want to open web bage using "1P shortcut" alfred opens two tabs in Firefox. Problem affects only Firefox (I have checked Safari, Opera and Chrome). https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1275510/1P%20Alfred%20Firefox.mov Lucas
  16. When using a Terminal Action in a workflow, the Terminal app is started and the command run successfully. If, however, a new tab is started with cmd-T or through the Terminal "Shell" menu, the command that Alfred originally sent to Terminal is run again in the new tab. Cheers, -Ben
  17. Wanted to do a quick post really quick as a response to a user on Twitter asking about opening files in new tabs. User @moomadcow referenced an article on the QuickSilver blog that mentioned opening files in new tabs and then linked to a plugin for QS that provided the functionality. There isn't currently any form of API or native support for opening a location in a new folder. That's why something like this doesn't already exist in Alfred. Alfred opens files by performing the same type of action you would see if you were to use the open command from the terminal. This method provides better compatibility and allows the command to work the same way if you use Finder, Path Finder, or anything else. I looked into this plugin and found that it is a rather basic AppleScript that provides the functionality. This could be turned into a workflow file action for Alfred but wouldn't be a potential addition as a core feature of Alfred. The way the script works is by using AppleScript to simulate clicking the "New Tab" option in the menubar and then setting the path of that window to the desired location. This isn't a very reliable way of providing the functionality though. This script would have the same shortcomings outlined in this post. Basically, UI scripting with AppleScript doesn't work the same across all locales. Read more about the issue in the mentioned post.
  18. When Alfred opens Google Chrome to search or do any workflow involving the web, it opens a new tab next to the default new tab page. Is there a way to prevent Chrome from opening this new tab page when Alfred opens it? (it gets annoying always closing this extra tab) Thanks!
  19. Updated version with more features and support for Google Chrome - BrowserTabs SafariTabs Features Close all tabs to the right or left of the active tab in Safari with a keyboard shortcut (recommended shortcuts - Command+Left / Right Arrow) Move to the left / right tab with keyboard shortcuts (recommended shortcuts - Command+Alt+Left / Right Arrow) Move to the first or last tab in the Safari window with keyboard shortcuts (recommended shortcuts - Command+Alt+Up / Down arrow) Install the workflow, add your own shortcuts for each command. Help for the keyboard shortcut setup: closeleft - closes all tabs to the left closeright - closes all tabs to the right tabright - activates the next tab to the right tableft - activates the next tab to the left lastTab - activates the first tab, to the left firstTab - activates the last tab, to the right Download SafariTabs
  20. Descriptions: This workflow will let you easily (keyboard shortcuts) close all the tabs to the right or left of the frontmost tab. How to setup and use: First, setup the shortcuts in the workflows preferences - I recommend using shortcuts like Command + Left/Right Arrow Then you'll use the shortcuts in Safari to close all the tabs to the right or left of the frontmost tab.

  21. Hey guys, once I got used to opening URLs with Alfred instead of activating safari and hitting cmd+t, I kinda wished Alfred 2 had this feature. If I want to open a new tab, I can do so by hitting cmd+t or do it via Alfred. But if I want to ‘replace’ the current tab with another address, I can only hit the Safari shortcut for focusing the omnibar and start typing. Wouldn't it be much nicer if I can, whether it's a standard web search or a workflow with suggestions, hit for example shift+return and have the action Alfred executes (if browser related) be happening in the current tab instead of a new one? Like an update feature, this is something I feel should be centralised and not left to every single workflow's discretion. I get that this might interfere with how modifier keys in workflows work, but having it for the default web searches would already be very helpful to me. I hope I got it across okay, thanks for listening!
  22. I've recently switched to Powerpack. I am very excited to see how it could make all the repetitive tasks much easier. I have a problem, though. Sample workflow “Should I watch this movie?” opens Web pages in different windows. It is a pain to navigate between those when you already have many browser windows open. Is there a way to open them in tabs of the same window?
