  1. Text Tokenizer Workflow for Alfred app Workflow for tokenizing different text value input, and converting them back to a string with multiple syntaxes. It was basically thought as a text exapander to convert space separated works into quoted comma separated values, to use in different languages, mostly because of envy of Ruby's array notation %w(). Usage Type the keyword tokenizer, followed by a space and then a list of space, comma, semicolon, tab or newline separated values. You can also paste from the clipboard here, which is the only way of inserting tabs or newlines. As long as the input string is not tokenizable, you'll see: When the input string is tokenizable you'll be prompted with different output options for your data: Select any output format and the generated text will be copied to the clipboard and pasted in the front most app. Installation For OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Download the alfred-text-tokenizer.alfredworkflow and import to Alfred 2. For Previous OS X Versions, Download the alfred-text-tokenizer.alfredworkflow and import to Alfred 2. Source Code Clone or Fork the Workflow: alfred-text-tokenizer-workflow.alfredworkflow Changelog 2014-01-29 - Released
  2. Hi. I have a spreadsheet that I am copying multiple cells into another sheet- but I'd like it in just 1 cell. What I've been doing is using Clean Text to remove returns from the app, but if I could run a shortcut to remove returns from my clipboard it would save me the steps of pasting into Clean Text, clicking remove returns, and copying that text.
  3. Problem and Solution I'm heavy user of Evernote. During internet surfing, I collect enormous amount of links. But copy and paste process consumes too much time and keyboard labor. I just needed titled link in plain format from web browser. I used many clipboard managers such as Clipmate(for windows), Copied, Paste and so on for that reason. Finally, I met Alfred and made this workflow. Problem solved. Lazy Link replaces following process into one hotkey(Ctrl + Option + Command + v). Copy the title of web page on the web browser Paste it as plain text on your rich text editor (eg. Evernote) Copy the link of web page Select title text on the text editor and add link Please, don't waste your time. Default Hotkey Ctrl + Option + Command + v: Paste lazy link Shift + Ctrl + Option + Command + v: Paste lazy link starting with "via: " In rich text editor, it pastes plain HTML link. If you use plain text editor it pastes the link in Markdown format. Links Download GitHub Packal Lazy Link currently supports Safari and Chrome web browser. 저장저장
  4. Here's a workflow I use to work with text files (which for me live in Dropbox, but that's not a requirement). It has these features: Create a new text file Query: create {folder to create the file in}, followed by the filename in the resulting dialog Search across existing text files Query: grep {search query} Append a line to an existing text file Query: append {file to append to}, followed by text to append in dialog Prepend a line to an existing text file Query: prepend {file to prepend to}, followed by text to append in dialog More at http://matthewhealy.net/blog/category/text-tools-for-alfred. I'd love to hear feedback and suggestions.
  5. Its very common that I want to past text as "plain text". For example If i copy formatted text I want to be able to paste it with clipboard without the formattation, ie plain text. Thanks
  6. Hi all, I write a lot of email, and would prefer to use a template to send snippets of email text. I love the Alfred "bar" where you can input whatever shortcut to get to somewhere. My question is, is there a way to trigger the bar, but instead of choosing from files / custom actions / etc., it shows a list of text templates in the drop-down I've configured? I use aText sometimes, but honestly, it's hard to remember all of the small shortcut names I've given it, and also it's pretty bad UX for something like. Thanks!
  7. Has anybody created a workflow that can change the color of text to a specific color within the Evernote app? At the moment, Evernote only allows you to show and hide the Color Picker with a shortcut (C-Command-Shift for both hiding and showing). However, it doesn't even make the Color Picker window/pane active, so it's not entirely clear to me how to script something that would could pick a color and close the Color Picker. I'm a scripting newbie, but I find it really annoying to constantly have to fidget with the mouse to get this repetitive task done. In fact, several other people have complained about the issue on Evernote's message boards. Like most people that use Evernote, I commonly highlight text in articles and change its color when I want to draw my attention to something or take a note, etc. However, the app only has a menu item shortcut for highlighting text, and it does not include anything to help people change the text's color without clicking around with their mouse. For example, I'd love to just assign a shortcut in Alfred that changes the text's color to red. Within Evernote's Color Picker-restricted system, it would need to do something like the following: After text has been manually highlighted by the user (i.e., not highlighting, as in its format, but just selected with the cursor), use an Alfred workflow to assign a keyword or a shortcut to: Open the Color Picker (C-Command-Shift) Make the Color Picker window active Select the Color Palette option - which is the 3rd one from the top on Macs without anything else installed Click the "Apple" palette - which is the default option that should already be selected Click the boring old Red color towards the bottom, and Close the Color Picker (C-Command-Shift) Of course, I'm completely open to suggestions for a solution outside of Evernote, too - i.e., one that happens out of plain sight and does not depend on clunkily opening and closing the Color Picker. Thanks for any help you can lend!!
  8. Funnel takes text and converts it to some other text by running it through a filter. The filter can be a shell script one-liner or a full script. Anything that takes standard input and outputs to standard out. At the moment, the following filters are implemented: - Base64 - decode - Base64 - encode - AES-256 - decrypt with passphrase 'X' - AES-256 - encrypt with passphrase 'X' - x509 - fingerprint - x509 - hash - x509 - certificate information - Change case - lowercase - Change case - uppercase - Change case - capitalize - Change case - title case - JSON - format - String - reverse - String - format US phone number - Lines - clear bullets - Lines - sorted unique lines - Lines - number lines - Lines - bulletize - Lines - top 10 unique lines - Lines - remove blanks - Lines - unique lines only - Lines - doublespace - Markdown - convert search links to normal links - Markdown - convert to HTML - URL - encode - HTML - encode - Sort IPv4 addresses The Funnel workflow is a variant of the preexisting Pipe workflow (http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1187-filter-clipboard-through-your-favourite-one-liners). I wasn't happy with how the workflow presented options and I didn't want the options sorted by Alfred. I also wanted to bundle some heavier processing scripts, so I created my own version of the workflow from scratch. The workflow can operate on text on the clipboard, on a file whose filename is on the clipboard, on selected text (using a hotkey) or on a selected file (using a hotkey). No matter where the text comes from, it is piped through the selected filter. If the text came from the clipboard or a selection, it is pasted into the active application after being processed. If the text came from a file, the file contents are replaced with the processed text. So, for example, if you select a block of text and trigger the workflow with a hotkey, you can choose 'Lines - bulletize' and the selected text will be replaced with bulleted lines. If you select a JSON file in Finder (or Path Finder) and trigger the file hotkey, you can choose 'JSON - format' and the file contents will be replaced with formatted JSON. Update: As Vitor pointed out, I forgot the link :-) https://github.com/packal/repository/raw/master/com.tedwise.funnel/funnel.alfredworkflow
  9. Hey, guys. I implemented a alfred workflow. You can do syntax highlighting code in clipboard using alfred-hl. Usage 1. Copy code snippet to clipboard (Cmd + C) 2. Highlight code - Type hl, space, find the language you want - Enter - Cmd + V to the rich text editor like Pages, Keynote Dependency - NodeJS 4+ - Install: brew install node Please read this document for detail and download
  10. Hi, happy to share yet another translation workflow. The existing ones I found didn't have support for some languages that I needed, so here we go https://github.com/rustycamper/alfred-translate-workflow/releases/latest Translate from/to your favorite language using Google or Microsoft Translate. Usage: * `tr` <query>: translate query. * `tr-setapi` <API>: select Google or Microsoft Translate service. * `tr-setkey` <API key>: set your API key. * `tr-setlang` <language>: set target language (language to translate to). Note: You won't need to set a source (from) language. Both Google and Microsoft are pretty good at guessing the origin language. Features: * Simple: setup once and just use it. * Secure: keys are stored in Mac's native Keychain tool. * Fast: repeat queries are cached for speed. Keyboard Shortcuts: * Enter: copy translation to clipboard. * Command + C: copy translation to clipboard. * Command + Y: show quick preview on the respective translation web site. * Command + L: show translated text in large font. Requirements: The first time you run the workflow, it will prompt you to enter your API key for Google or Microsoft. * Instructions on how to get a Google API key: https://cloud.google.com/translate/docs/getting-started#set_up_your_project * Instructions on how to get a Microsoft API key: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/translator/getstarted.aspx Flag Icons by GoSquared (http://www.gosquared.com/) Uses Alfred-Workflow library https://github.com/deanishe/alfred-workflow/
  11. I threw together a simple workflow that types out the text you input into Alfred. Optionally, It will use the text in your clipboard if you hold down the function key when you run the workflow. Here is where this has come in handy for me: Quickly typing the key code into a software registration form that won't let you paste text. Quickly typing text in a form box on a flash or java or javascript website that is preventing you from pasting text. Would love to hear about any clever uses.

  12. Hi Guys I work with a software that I need always copy from it and past somewhere else. I have a problem with it since it has a lot of unwanted spaces. For example: "My text has a lot of spaces" I would like some workflow that removes all spaces from text except for single spaces between words. In my example would be like that: "My text has a lot of spaces" Basically equal to the function TRIM on Microsoft Excel, I don't have experience with code, so I really appreciate some help.
  13. I am often changing text around to different formats in large quantities. So, I made a workflow for keeping all of them. I call it text massagers because you are "massaging" the text with the script. You can use this as your template for your own massagers. All of these scripts takes the item from the clipboard, massages it, and places back into the clipboard while showing you the results. <alt><command>m - Expects a markdown anchor line in the clipboard and converts it to a HTML anchor within a list item. <alt><command>o - Changes the "streaming=off" to "streaming=on" in a WordPress shortcode in the clipboard. <alt><command>t - Fixes a time into HH:MM:SS format no matter what it was before. <shift><command>” - Takes the current selection and passes it to the “tm:select” command for selecting the text massager from a list. It will show the result of the massager in the list. It will then perform the selected “massage” to the text, and copy it to the clipboard and back into the document it was grabbed from if possible. <shift><alt>” - Takes the current selection and passes it to the “tm:select” command for selecting the text massager from a list. It will not show the result of the massager in the list. It will then perform the selected “massage” to the text, and copy it to the clipboard and back into the document it was grabbed from if possible. Download: https://github.com/raguay/MyAlfred
  14. I wrote up an extremely hacky way to reply to iMessages (should also work with SMS, maybe even group conversations) using the chat.db database. It will display the number of who it thinks is your most recent contact so you don't accidentally send your grandmother a reply intended for your significant other. Ideally it would show the person's name by looking up the number in your contacts, but I don't know how to do that so for now it's just the phone number. To use, just open Alfred and type ".. <message>" If it works, you'll see in the sub text the last message from that conversation. Hopefully that provides some useful context. Expect it to not work a fair amount though because the chat.db database is not too reliable. Any suggestions for ways to improve this are welcome. https://www.dropbox.com/s/74ggiacfc3zpk0z/Reply%20to%20iMessage.alfredworkflow?dl=1
  15. I just upgraded to V3 with the Powerpack. I am hoping to be able to dump TextExpander if I can get some questions answered. I usually time/date stamp my emails and with TextExpander I have the expanded text look like this: Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 06:28 AM. I have tried modifying the sample date expression in Alfred but I cannot get it to look the same. The expression I tried was : {date:%A, %B %d, %Y at %I:%M %p} and it is not working. In TextExpander I can have the text formatted with bold or italic. Can Alfred format expanded text with things like bold & italic?
  16. I use Plain Clip to clean up copied text before pasting it. Works beautifully. Made a keyboard combo and workflow to make this process even easier, but unfortunately, Plain Clip needs a fraction of a second to process the text, and in the meantime, the text is already pasted. How to add a delay between calling Plain Clip and pasting the text. See the image of the workflow below:
  17. I created this workflow recently and wrote about it at Alfred Workflow to Capture Thoughts and Ideas to a Text File Without Disrupting Your Flow. From the README: This workflow for Alfred captures what you type and appends it to a text file of your choice. It’s very useful to capture quickly any thoughts or tasks that surface while you’re working and don't want to be distracted. 1. Double click the downloaded Capture to text.aflredworkflow file in Finder to install. 2. Double click the Run Script action and replace the file name ~/Desktop/cap.txt in the Script with your preferred file path. The file will be automatically created when the workflow runs if it doesn't exist. 3. Click Save. To use it, type capture, hit return and then any text and hit return again, and your input text will be appended to the text file. Go through the text file in batches when you are ready.

  18. Hi and good day, I don't know how to solve this in a better way than quitting Alfred. Sometimes I'm using a typing-from-the-clipboard-shortcut (instead of pasting), however this starts Alfred (which I have set with ⇧ twice to open the little fast-entry window). Is there a way to avoid this behaviour? Or how to deactivate Alfred for a while instead of quitting it? / with best regards, Omar KN Stockholm, Sweden
  19. Hello everyone, This is my first ever Alfred Workflow contribution, and also my first ever PHP coding. I have been reading a lot and watching tutorials in order to learn PHP. Now here is the problem: I copy then paste very often phone numbers that contain, spaces, dashes or parentheses, that I then have to manually clean. So, I created this workflow in order to get rid of those characters and keep the phone number clean and ready to paste. Here is how it works: Enter the keyword “phc” followed by the number to clean. It will save the cleaned version to your clipboard; You can directly clean a number in your clipboard by just typing “phc” in Alfred. The number will get cleaned it, and saved to your clipboard. I hope this helps. Thank you everyone. URL: http://www.packal.org/workflow/phone-number-cleaner NB: Do not hesitate to give your suggestions, improve it, etc. Bash Will
  20. Hey guys, Here's a simple yet extremely useful plugin to quickly print (on your default printer) a file or some text. If the query is empty, your last copied text is printed. print -> print from clipboard print {query} -> print argument file action, print -> print file. Warning: Not all files will work.

  21. I've released a new version of Text Snippets changed from Text Shortcut. Now Text Snippets can handle snippets and terminal commands. https://github.com/rtoshiro/alfred-workflows-textshortcut
  22. Hi all! I made a workflow for making changes in place to the selected text, via hotkeys. I demo the main behaviors in a screencast here. You can download this version of the workflow from dropbox here. (I'll get its github repository up to date shortly.) It requires python, but it's just using fairly standard modules: argparse, re, os, functools, and subprocess. Thanks for your help, everybody!
  23. I apologize if this has been covered in the forum but I'm looking for a workflow that appends text to a journal file located in my Dropbox/@text directory The text file name is Work Log: February 2015 and the format is as follows ##2015-02-18 10:42 AM: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit 10:43 AM: sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Basically the workflow would look for the filename and, if not found, would create a new month and then look for the date (if date not present then it is created) and append a timestamped entry under today's date. My idea is to use FoldingText to fold the individual days but to have all work log activities in a monthly text file. I'm having trouble figuring out how to get it to log under the correct date instead of just logging to the page. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  24. Textwell Workflow This workflow is for working with the [Textwell](http://sociomedia.com/textwell/) program for the Mac. It currently give a command for opening it quickly, tw:front. It also has: tw:edit This copies the selected text and pastes it into TextWell. It also saves the name of the application that the text was copied from. tw:paste This copies what is in TextWell and pastes it back into the application that the text was copied from. There are hotkeys setup for the last two commands as well: tw:edit and tw:paste. You have to assign the hotkeys yourself. This gives similar feature as QuickCursor, though I have never used that application. I am exploring more ways to extend this workflow. Keep an eye on it! Version: 1.0 Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/textwell-workflow My Github: https://github.com/raguay/MyAlfred My Web site: http://customct.com
  25. So basically you type in to Alfred something like "send message to Steve" ("Steve" would be just an example for a name in your contacts) and then a compose message box comes up for you to type in the body of text for the messages. This allows you to send iMessages very quickly and efficiently.
