  1. 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 - Stri
  2. Is there a way to sequentially feed different file names through Alfred’s replace utilities and then apply them to the appropriate files at the end? By way of background, I have a workflow that I’ve been using religiously for a few years which takes a file name and then feeds it through numerous replace utilities to help me name the research-related articles on my computer in a consistent manner (mostly pdfs). As you might imagine, each individual replace utility is specific to a particular source or naming convention from my field (fixing commas, odd characters, capitalization iss
  3. Is it possible to wrap the results text in the subtitle or title fields? I am trying to return some text from a script, and I'd love to show a full result.
  4. 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 peop
  5. It would be great if you could improve text navigation in the input text box. So far left/right arrows move by single character and command + arrow moves to the beginning/end of the text. I'd like to have option + arrow to jump between words as well. Furthermore it would be great if you can configure word boundaries - e.g. whitespaces, delimitters, camel humps etc. Thank you!
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. Hello, I need help learning how to make the following simple workflow. I would like it to do this: Paste selected text without style into a new TextEdit document. I have made workflows before but only for opening files, apps, and URLs - never anything more complex than that. I don't know how to do Apple Scripts and such. Just so you know to dumb it down a little for me. Thank you so much!

  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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 inpu
  13. 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. Evernot
  14. 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/
  15. 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!
  16. 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
  17. 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.

  18. 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.
  19. 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 - Ch
  20. 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 conversati
  21. 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?
  22. 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:
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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.
