  1. Here's a workflow that's useful for developers; it allows you to convert between timestamps and formatted datetime strings with ease. Simply type "df" followed by: "now", a UTC unix timestamp, or a formatted datetime string. This will present you with the parsed date in various formats ready to copy to your clipboard. Download
  2. Time Stamp Workflow

    I just added workflow snippets to my Time Stamp Workflow and noticed that I had never shared it. So, here it is. You can use "ts:stamp" to list the pre-defined date/time stamp format and paste the current date/time into the top application. Or, you can use the "ts:build" to build your own date/time stamp to add to the list. I also have several predefined snippets: ;tsl = the current date/time using the last select date/time stamp. ;ed = the current date/time in the mm/dd/yyyy format. ;dow = the current day of the week. ;nsu - the next Sunday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nmo - the next Monday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;ntu - the next Tuesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nwe - the next Wednesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nth - the next Thursday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nfr - the next Friday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nsa - the next Saturday date using the last select date/time stamp.

  3. Here's another little tool I've just whipped up: Get an instant list of the current time in various cities around the world. Which you can customize, of course. Main keyword: tz (for TimeZones) - this just shows the World Clock list (seen above). (Select a city for a Large Type display.) To remove a city from the list - option-select it. To add a new city - timezone add Name of City To update all cities' timezone offset information - timezone update To look up the time in a place without storing it (custom loookup), just keep typing the place name after the initial tz (eg. tz timbuktu) To move the location of your stored city list - timezone move Download v1.7a This workflow saves a list of your cities and their UTC offsets locally, so the basic world clock will display instantly. Adding new city information is done via an API call to Google Wolfram Alpha. The only downside to locally cached offsets is that there's no provision for automatically updating for Daylight Savings changes, but a manual timezone update will refresh all the cities with their current offset. Enjoy. As usual, I welcome comments, bug reports, feature requests, etc. ---- 28 March 2013 - UPDATE to v1.5 Major rewrite - now uses Google Maps APIs, which should be a lot more reliable and consistent. Flag icons! Bit of eye candy, courtesy of http://www.free-country-flags.com (and managed to squeeze flags for every country in the world into just over 400k - thank you TinyPNG ) More detail retrieved and displayed, including timezone name, country, etc. When doing a full "update", a text file is saved to your Desktop summarising any changes found. General enhancement and tweaks. PLEASE NOTE: Because this version stores its data substantially different to previous versions, it will create a new timezones.txt file with default cities. However, it will attempt to save your old timezones.txt file to your Desktop, so you should be able to rebuild your previous list without too much hassle. A quick note about the flags: The workflow simply compares the retrieved name of the country and does a simple name match against the workflow's local repository of flag icons. From my testing, it's working very well, but I'd appreciate it if you'd report back if you find any countries that don't properly match a flag icon. Cheers. ---- 31 March 2013 - UPDATE to v1.6 New feature: Custom lookups. Just keep typing a new place name after the tz keyword to look up the time in a place without saving it to your saved list. Added support for phyllisstein's Alleyoop auto-updater. [EXPERIMENTAL] - support for autocomplete for adding place names (timezone add). You'll need to add a keyword yourself to the script filter if you want to try it out. The reason I haven't enabled it by default is that I've found it kind of slow and I'm not sure it's actually an improvement over the current method. Let me know what you think. [Add a keyword to this script filter if you'd like to try it out] Novelty: Added (unofficial) Antarctica flag to flag repository. (Try tz south pole. ) ---- 2 April 2013 — UPDATE to v1.61 Small fix for Dutch (Netherlands) flag matching. ---- 22 March 2014 — UPDATE to v1.7 City List now always shows in the same order. (Achieved by removing “uid” parameter.) Removed Alleyoop updater. ---- 22 March 2014 — UPDATE to v1.7a New 256x256px icon
  4. Hey ya'll, This may be a silly ask but I'm new to Alfred so I figured I'd start here! Can anyone tell me how to calculate a new date ie 16 days from today's date? I tried using a snippet that looked similar to this: {date}+16 and it doesn't seem to work out. Any tips? Thanks!
  5. Hi forum. I recently purchased the Alfred PowerPack and am looking forward to leveraging its power. I've added a few custom workflows that are triggered by hotkeys which run some NSAppleScripts. I'd like to do the same for a few more, but triggered automatically at a specific time each week (e.g. "every Friday @ 6pm"). I don't see a workflow object that is triggered by date or time. Is this possible in Alfred?
  6. This is pretty self-explanatory. My suggestion is that a new trigger object is added for workflows which triggers at the specified time, perhaps with a day/date component as well, and passes the date through to the workflow.
  7. Hi guys, the new snippets auto expansion is nice. Thanks for such a great update! Anyway is it possible to set different format for {date} and {time} ?
  8. G'day folks! I've recently dug into writing a workflow for Alfred which purpose is to control Hyperion (a service which supplies LED stripes with data). However, when I'm trying to ssh into the remote machine to fetch a list of all available colors (148 ones), it apparently takes too long. Now, I've read on the forum that Alfred has no such thing as timeout. But in that case, I would love if someone could explain why I can fetch the list of effects, where there are only 14 lines and not the list of colors (148). Is there anything I can do? Oh, and yeah: I've seen the setting "terminate script on subsequent input setting", but I cannot find it no more. I thought I could test without that setting, but I don't seem to find it anymore. Edit: found the setting. Whatever setting I had didn't matter. If I run the script in the terminal, the file with the list creates just fine. It's only an issue when using Alfred. Thankful for answers.
  9. I currently use Mac's Parental Controls feature to limit the amount of time my child can spend on the family iMac on a given day. For instance, once he's done with homework and chores, he's allowed to login and use up his weekday allotment. Sometimes I want to grant him extra time as a reward for something, yet the iMac is often a good distance from where I situated in the house. I'm looking for a way to "extend" my child's time using an iPhone app for remote control so that I don't need to go to the Mac and type in my admin username and pw. Ideally I would also be able to just lock/unlock his iMac screen using my iPhone from anywhere (over internet) at any time. Will Alfred work for this? Any other suggestions? I've been web searching like crazy, reading about different software offerings, and cannot seem to come up with anything like this. One would think Apple would supply native remote control capabilities across its product line-up. Thanks in advance!
  10. Change system time

    Hello. I've been looking for a workflow that changes the system date, but couldn't find one. Does anyone know of one or how to make it? Thank you and take care,
  11. What? Synopsis: If you are regularly attending meetings where people from different countries need to join and you need a quick and easy way to check a future date in all the time zones, wouldn't you love just saying "April 17 10am london to paris,germany,india" And boom. You would know what date and time April 17 10am is in paris, germany and india? Every timezone calculator I've used so far either have clunky drop down menus or, like google time search, only works with current dates, not future dates. Not very helpful. Read on. This workflow does just that. Features: 1) enter your own shortcuts for long timezones (there is a convenience code mapping in a file you can extend) 2) enter full timezones 3) enter cities,countries not part of above and it will use Google to convert it to a timezone (best guess) 4) allows you to enter many destinations at once (tzc 10am md to paris,london,czech,algeria) Download Download link Current version of workflow 1.4 Changelog May 5 2013: Released v1.4 - fixed bugs. Removed dependency on DateTime - easier to install for non dev. users. No xcode etc. needed. The workflow should work without any additional installation steps (or so I hope) May 4 2013: Released v1.3 -added Google api integration, added explicit instructions on install pre-requisites April 18 2013: Original version Keyword tzc How This is an easy to use time zone converter with multiple tz support. Specifically, I often have 'meeting scheduling requirements' with customers from all around the world. So someone asks me 'hey are you ok with a meeting on April 17th at 10am london time?' and then given that I want to make sure that time is ok with me as well as my team members who are in different countries, I need to quickly calculate what that means in different timezones. tzc to the rescue Most available calculators are cumbersome, or, don't handle multiple zones, etc. so I wrote my own All you need to do for the above is, in alfred type "tzc April 17 10am london to paris,germany,india" and boom - you will have what this means to folks in paris, germany and india. Alternately, you can just say "tzc 10am london to paris, germany, india" to skip date. Many other options - see help file in the worflow Here you are converting 10AM maryland to paris and bogotia. Note the different icon for Bogota. This means, bogota was not recognized and it did a google API matching to resolve the timezone Here is an example of a future date + time conversion Note that this workflow requires some perl modules to be installed, so if it does not find them, it will tell you. See below for installation instructions Also, in that workflow folder, there is a file called mycities.inc - you can assign shortnames to timezones so you don't have to remember long timezone names (london,paris,germany examples are all shortnames defined in mycities.inc - extend it to add your own). To edit the shortnames "tzc edit" To get help, "tzc help" Troubleshooting (if things don't work) This workflow needs two perl modules to be installed. They are Date::Parse & LWP::UserAgent. You *should* already have them installed but if the workflow is telling you one of these modules are missing, read on: Step 1: Launch a terminal Step 2: Check if you have both Date::Parse and LWP::UserAgent installed In the terminal, type and then If either of them generate an error, you need to follow the next steps. If neither of the above produce any output, you have them installed already. Enjoy the workflow - you don't need to follow the rest of the steps. Step 3: Type in It may ask you lots of questions, just go with defaults/yes. Get to a point where you get a cpan> prompt Then type, one by one To make sure, exit cpan, launch a terminal and repeat step 2 to make sure these don't print any errors. If none of these result in an error, you are all set. Comments, feedback welcome. Its possible I am not leveraging some cool things in Alfred - feel free to point them out to me as well.
  12. Accumulating Time

    Hi, With the recent comments about wanting to add up several time values using the calcutor, I decided to cleanup and give out this handy workflow. I am often needing to add up a series to times in a document. This workflow makes it very easy. Clear the accumulator, select a time value, and hit your hotkey combination you assigned in this workflow. The time will be accumulated. You can show the time in Hr:min:sec format or just plain minutes. Have fun! ta:clear This clears the accumulator ta:showmin Show the accumulated time in just minutes. ta:showhr Show the accumulated time There is a hotkey you need to set for adding the currently selected time.

  13. This workflow extends Alfred's built-in calculator function. It recognizes durations as input and allows them to be added / subtracted. For example, if you type "8:00:18 - 4:19:23" into Alfred, you'll get "3:40:55". You may add or subtract as many durations as you like (e.g. "3:32:55 - 5:57 + 4:50:14"). Download Preview:
  14. Date & time workflow

    I often end up in a situation when my entire screen is covered with windows and the tiny analog clock on the menu bar is just too hard to decipher. Plus, I guess it's safe to say that all of us hate using the mouse or the trackpad on those over-work days (hence Alfred! ).So I decided to make a most basic workflow using the "date" command of the Terminal. There are two keywords: 'date' and 'time'. On actioning these keywords, the current date and time (respectively) are displayed on the screen using the "Large Type" output mode. That's it! (oh, one more thing - I use the word "Clock" for the search result to avoid conflict with "Date & Time" of "System Preferences") Here are a few screenshots: date keyword date output time keyword time output NOTE: Although it is not apparent from the screenshots, the large type output is actually transparentso it does not really cover your screen with a completely opaque black panel! And a press of the Esc key is all that's required to get it out of sight. You can download the workflow from here: https://github.com/bedartha/DateTime I hope you guys like it. - Bedartha
  15. I created a workflow to display the current date and time in a configurable format. Pressing enter will copy to clipboard. You can also add and subtract time. Examples: date 3w: today + 3 weeks date -2y: today - 2 years date 2m -5d: today + 2 months - 5 days View GitHub for more details. Direct Download.
  16. alfreTS This is a time stamp workflow for the Alfred Application. Download the current package via dropbox. Open the alfred window then type now. The results show the current timestamp in different formats. Select a timestamp format to copy the shown timestamp to the clipboard. Paste it into any editor you like. You can define your own formats via the python strftime syntax. It is also possible to define your preferred locale setting to acquire the weekday and month names in your local language. In order to edit these settings you need to enter the settings into the script of the Script Filter inside the workflow. This can be done by editing the #commented lines. (In case you did not know how #comments work: lines with # in front will be ignored by the python interpreter and not be executed.) Please visit the projects github repository. If you are using this workflow and you happen to make a new format for timestamps please share it here. Thankyou! <( )> hug me <(^.^ )> PS: somehow I cannot add screenshots here. It says I am not allowed to link *.png files (T_T)" If you would like to see some screenshots please visit the github repository. The README.md contains two screenshots. update: new version online =) alfreTS_v0.0.201402142154.alfredworkflow Question to all users: Would you like to have an interface via the Alfred input window to edit your locale and your formats?
  17. Get Current Timestamp

    I created a simple workflow to copy the current timestamp (In seconds or milliseconds) to clipboard. Useful as a developer! http://cl.ly/001g0F3K0e2R Usage timestamp - Copies current time in seconds to clipboard timestampm - Copies current time in milliseconds to clipboard timestamp <timestamp> - Converts timestamp to readable date Feedback Let me know if theres any problems or feature requests! Cheers.
  18. Anyone have a way to pull up the time in different countries? A conversion app that could do postal codes etc. would be SWEET!
