  1. I wanted an easy way to compress files from Alfred, so I wrote a quick workflow to do it. It can compress a single file or folder to .ZIP, .TAR.GZ, .TAR.BZ2, and .DMG archive formats. Support for multiple files/folders may be added later, if I can figure it out Any and all feedback is welcome. Enjoy Download Here
  2. Hi all, I'm trying to come up with a workflow to archive old projects to Amazon Glacier… The file structure I have is: Client Name/Projects/Project Name/ I want to create a tar.bz2 file with the Project name, but I want to create it on the Desktop (as Client folder is on dropbox, and I don't need the tar uploaded to Dropbox) So I have the beginnings of a workflow, that selects the folder and runs a terminal command: tar -jcvf {query}.tar.bz2 {query} Obviously this creates the archive in the "Projects" folder as {query} outputs the full path. So my first question is: Is it possible to 'process' the {query} in some way, to get just the filename, not the path? Next, I want to run the following command, once the last one has completed: glacier archive upload ClientName Project Name.tar.bz2 So now I need to get the grand-parent folder's name, remove any spaces and insert it into the command? Is this possible with workflows, or am I going to have to look into a script to do it (out of my comfort zone!)? Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer!
