  1. It's been a while since I've updated Alfred. I'm a Powerpack user. The last two times I updated, all my data was lost ... I had to attempt to re-create all that I'd created. I just checked my sync to Dropbox, and -- sure enough -- the Alfred.alfredpreferences file was last modified 4 years ago in 2018, even though I'm constantly adding new web searches. Meanwhile my Alfred is working fine, so it has my current data. What can I do to ensure that everything I've done from 2018 to 2022 is saved and available to an updated Alfred 5? Why can't I simply download the current state of my Alfred preferences, and then upload if needed? Thanks for any suggestions ...
  2. library in Swift to ease the integration of updates from within Alfred. the API is basically four (3+1, or 2+2 if you prefer) methods: 1. check if an update is available (compares latest version on GitHub release VS the version of your local Workflow): if let release = Updater.checkUpdate(for: "godbout/AlfredKat") { // release.version, release.file, release.page available } 2. launch the update Updater.update(with: release.file) 3. notify (useful before launching at it is blocking) Updater.notify(title: "Alfred Kat", message: "downloading your s... workflow") 4. open release page (or anything for that matter) Updater.open(page: release.page) more on GitHub: https://github.com/godbout/AlfredWorkflowUpdater currently the update will be blocking your Script and the notification icon is the Script Editor one. this should get better in subsequent updates. enjoy ☀️
  3. Works greats, except... how to "import" the v4 settings, web searches, snippets, workflows, etc. (basically everything)? EDIT: Obviously, I'm an idiot. Looks like the (Dropbox) synced settings have to be enabled manually. After that, everything's fine.
  4. Flow: A Minimal Project Management Workflow Flow is an Alfred workflow that provides a File Action for quick project management processes written in Bash. It's a minimal solution for tasks and project management that stays out of your way so you can stay focused. Version 1.1 Updates 1. More simplicity for the workflow variable declarations. You can now declare your variables with the standard path syntax such as notes=~/Documents/Notes. 2. Also in version 1.1, the tag cli tool is included for those who do not have it installed via homebrew so you do not need to install it. If you do have it installed in it’s default location (via homebrew) /usr/local/bin/tag the workflow will use that version instead of the one included. A Real Life Example In any given moment of thought or email/message received, I want to be able to bring up Alfred and make a selection from things on my desktop to: Apply a simple tag Include a memo Be done with it (I don’t even want to see it anymore) until I’m ready to focus on it later. This way I won’t lose (hardly) any time but more important; I don’t lose the mental real-estate that I already have accrued while working in a different project at that moment. The idea is that by applying the tag you set a process in motion to migrate the selected item(s) over to your main Projects directory where you ideally keep them. The tag options are (tomorrow, shelf, or any day of the week) and the selected items are moved accordingly. Also included is a script that can process the items for “today” meaning that if you invoke the script with the hotkey “ttoday” it will comb through your projects directory and look for items tagged with the matching tag for whatever today is (sunday-saturday), or with “tomorrow” and symlink them to the desktop. I find using this script as a launch utility when booting up is the best. Thanks for taking the time to read and give Flow a look. I’ve included the technical information in the “About this Workflow” that should show up when you import it into Alfred. You can download the workflow here: https://cp.sync.com/dl/9a0958280/gauk3st2-pdbjhpjb-purw294c-2usf89s5
  5. Alfred 3.4.1 [860] When installing an update for a workflow, Alfred migrates the keyboard shortcut assigned to a Hotkey, but it drops any Related Apps on the floor. For example, I use @vitor's MarkdownBulletin workflow, but I have the Hotkey set to only be active in Safari and Google Chrome. I just installed an update, and Alfred correctly migrated my keyboard shortcut to the newer version, but the Related Apps have disappeared.
  6. I am builing my first workflow that i wan tto make public available. Therefor I need it to have an auto update function, because i want to be able to have extre features implemented in the future. But, I am new to prgramming and github. But found an interesting article about this http://alfredworkflow.readthedocs.io/en/latest/user-manual/update.html But I have no idea where to do this configuration shizzle: Anyone here that knows how to do this and can help me out?
  7. Release notes for 3.3.2 include: > Update Alfred's built toolset on fresh new mini build server, shiny! What does this mean ?
  8. Version of OS X: 10.12.3 (16D32) Version/build of Alfred: v3.3/801 Expected behavior: When checking for updates, be able to connect to remote update server for updates. Actual behavior: Unable to contact update server. Unable to load changelog. Reproduce: 1. Be behind proxy 2. Set `$http_proxy`, `$https_proxy`, `$HTTP_PROXY`, `$HTTPS_PROXY` in environment. 3. Check for updates... Optional: toggle use macOS proxy in network in Alfred -> advanced settings. Try step 3 again. I'd love some guidance on this. FWIW, this worked before upgrading to Sierra. P.S., great tool! Very helpful. Thanks for sharing! Cheers, erip
  9. In Alfred3, I bought Power Pack. However, Power Pack is not usable because I cannot be connected to update server of Alfred3. I can be connected to update server of Alfred2. This state continues more than one month. What should I do to be connected to update server of Alfred3? I attach screen shot.
  10. Hello, every time when I try to update Alfred 2 (I think since I bought it in March 2013) I get the message "Unable to verify". This bug has followed over with every Mac OS X update and clean install since then. I know about this thread: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/2858-update-fails-with-unable-to-verify-for-every-release/ and I am sure the PHP on my Mac is fine (OS X 10.11.5). $ php -version PHP 5.5.34 (cli) (built: Apr 22 2016 19:16:58) ... $ whereis php /usr/bin/php $ php -r 'echo "Test";' Test The only way to update Alfred seems to be to download a fresh copy of Alfred from the website. This was a little annoying, but not so much that it was worth the efford to complain. But now with Alfred 3 there is no obvious download link on the website for Alfred 2 anymore. What is it, that this bug is so persistent? How to solve it? (I know I can upgrade to Alfred 3, and maybe I will do that in the future. But honestly Alfred 3 brings nothing new that I need. And also I'm in doubt this bug is fixed by upgrading.) Best regards, Brian
  11. Hello all, I cannot reveal the "Space" reserved for Finder with Alfred anymore, since mac os updade. Here is exactly what I mean, I have been as precise as possible to eliminate possible misunderstandings. Preconditions: -iMac 27 " running mac os "El Capitan" 10.11 (15A284) -Alfred updated in version 2.8 414 -There is at least 4 spaces set up. -Spaces do not "rearange based on most recent used". -Finder is set to be used on space 3 only. -Safari is set to be displayed on space 1 only. - At least 1 Finder window is opened (on space 3) Steps to reproduce : -open Safari (which then open on space 1) -open Alfred -type in "finder" to trigger the action "open finder app" -press enter Expected Results: (as previously observed before El capitan update) -The view will change to space 3 to reveal the opened finder window Observed Results: -The Finder becomes active but the computer does not change from space 1 ( safari) to space 3 (finder) to reveal the previously opened window. Am I the only one to observe this ?
  12. It would be helpful to display the current version in addition to the new version on the update tab in settings. This would tell users how far they need to read in the changelog. Thanks for the awesome application! (I have a vague recollection of Alfred doing this in the past, but I'm not certain.)
  13. Hi guys! I don't know if someone have the same problem, but I can't make Alfred update for 2.6 version. All the times which I try to make update, the software shows the same message: "Unable to find update zip :(" How can I solve this problem? My OS is El Capitan 10.11 Beta (15A262e). []'s
  14. Hello, I am trying to update to the latest version (2.6), the download bar is full and showing 3.7 MB but nothing is happening. If I close and re-open the preferences I get the same thing, it stards downloading, the download bar goes to full and that's it, it's not installing the update or whatever it should do. You can see the screenshot here: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s162/sh/1ac43391-9098-4e58-9188-6a27c50a5900/e1772f5993c2ac2a3064ba6fdff51d77
  15. I am about to release my workflow, http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/5100-regex-run-and-save-regular-expressions/ , onto Packal. The workflow contains a file that contains user data. That is, users can save their own regexs for future use, and those saved regexs are saved in the file. Let's call it MyRegexFile.pl. When I release the next version of my workflow, how can I make it so that user data is not overwritten? * Perhaps there is a special Alfred way to handle updates * Perhaps there is a special Packal way to handle updates * Perhaps the file should be stored elsewhere on the user's computer * Perhaps the file contents should be stored in the keyword script filter itself Those are my ideas. I would like to find the right solution before releasing the new version. I would like the solution to be user friendly. Thanks!
  16. I have Pages '09 as my main word processor. When I try to open a Pages template (using Alfred 2) that I use quite a bit, it always tells me that the template is a file that needs a newer version (Pages 5) of the program I'm running. The weird thing is that when I open this template using a shortcut program called Overflow, opens normally and into Pages '09. Why is Alfred the only program that's not letting me open this template?
  17. Note from Andrew: While this is a convenient method for updating workflows, I cannot endorse the use of it unless you are fully aware of the security implications of blanket updating all of your workflows. I'm currently working on a built in workflow auto-updater, for a future Alfred 2 release, that performs the standard verification checks that Alfred currently does on manual import, along with migrating your hotkey/keyword settings on upgrading. I'll also be adding 3rd party workflow developer signatures to keep you safe. Hey all, I've just completed a workflow designed to make it easier for workflow developers to push updates to their work. (And to their flows.) It's called Alleyoop, it's based very heavily on the concept behind David's old extension updater, and it works a little something like this: When you enter the query oop, it searches through the workflow folders for files named update.json. update.json indicates what version of the workflow is currently installed and where to check for an update. (The format is below.) Alleyoop downloads a remote json file, indicated in update.json, and if that file indicates a higher version, it downloads the workflow at the address given by the remote file. The user finds the workflow in his or her ~/Downloads directory and opens it. There is no step 4. Workflow developers can start implementing this workflow immediately. All you need is a static place to host a json file and an alfredworkflow file—so Github will do, failing all else, but Droplr won't. Place an update.json file in your workflow, with the following keys defined: { "version": 1.0, "remote_json": "http://alfred.daniel.sh/Updates/Things.json" } version should be a float, meaning that 1.0 and 1.1 and 3.14159 are all valid, but 3.1.4 is not, and remote_json should point to a json file on a remote server that's defined like this: { "version": 1.5, "download_url": "http://alfred.daniel.sh/Workflows/Things.alfredworkflow", "description": "Brief description of the update." } If the version on the remote server is greater than the version on the user's computer, s/he'll see something like this: Selecting a workflow from the list will download it. No fuss, no muss. And that's it! Enjoy implementing this, until we get a good package manager running again, and let me know if you run into any difficulties. Download Here
  18. When trying to automatically update to latest build, I get the message see screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/qobEynurAOV1 Let me know. proch
  19. Most of the workflows I installed is from this Github repo. https://github.com/zenorocha/alfred-workflows However, I did find those workflows are being updated very frequently, so manual update is somehow tedious. It would be better if Alfred can implement a way to check whether remote alfredworkfllow files have been updated or not, and autoupdate them if necessary. Even better, implementing a Alfred workflows package manager would help both autoupdate and discover new packages.
  20. First of all, credit due to @phyllisstein and his suggestion and workflow for Alleyoop. This workflow is just my personal take on a workflow updater based on Alleyoop, made for fun. Keyword is mp, then select an option listed. Listing compatible workflows will display all workflows with Alleyoop support: Checking for updates will list all available updates, you can Download all of them, or each one individually. Downloads are saved to your Downloads folder. Information related to workflow updates are cached for a day/until the next time you log in. Use the reset cache option to clean this up so you can force an update check. View log will open the folder that contains the Monkey Patch log. Download from here.
  21. Hi, I'd love to have the oppertunity to allow auto-updating: just download the latest version when connected to the internet and start installing it. The only popup i'd like to see is entering the username and password for my computer, to allow the installer to make changes to the Alfred app.
  22. The update process built into Alfred has failed for me in each of the last few releases. In each case I get a message like "Unable to verify v2.0.6 b203" after I try to update, and Alfred fails to update. Next time I start the computer I get asked to update again, and again it fails. This has happened ever since I've installed Alfred — I think the first version I had was v2.0.2. I have to manually download each new version from your website, and copy it over the existing installation. In this example I am using v2.0.4, but it occurs for v2.0.5 as well as older versions. It starts with the popup telling me there's an update available: I click Update and the download starts: The download appears to finish correctly, but then immediately afterwards the verification error is displayed: I've looked at the network traffic, and it looks like the download works OK. In the above example, Alfred made two requests which both completed successfully: GET http://media.alfredapp.com/v2update/info.plist GET http://cachefly.alfredapp.com/Alfred_2.0.6_203.zip That second request resolved to (vip1.AU-anycast1.cachefly.net) which is an Australian cachefly server (I do live in Australia). Is it possible that the file is corrupted on this server and not others? Note however that I've had the same problem with previous releases so it can't be just the Alfred_2.0.6_203.zip file that is to blame. Finally, I've checked the logs in Console.app and there's nothing relevant from Alfred there (just a single startup message after booting up). Any suggestions? Thanks Charles
  23. I keep getting the update popup 'Alfred v2.0.6 (203) is now available'. I update and relaunch but it will still popup at a random time or when I open another application. Anyone else having this issue? I'm on Mountain lion.
  24. Unable to download v2.0.4 (199). Red text appears saying "Unable to find update zip :("
  25. Hey For a couple of days, I get the "Alfred v.2.0.2 (178) is now available" pop up. When I click on update, it seems to download something, when I then hit "Update and Relaunch" nothing seems to happen. A couple of minutes later, the pop up comes again. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
