  1. Is there a way to export my custom web searches? I’ve set up a ton of them and need to wipe out the HDD.
  2. IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT HANGING PROCESSES ON SIERRA (2017-04-03) Versions of Alfred-Workflow older than 1.25 cannot launch background processes properly on Sierra. In fact, they regularly hang quite dramatically and consume 100% CPU Users (in particular) affected by this bug should install and run this workflow, which can find and fix any workflows with broken versions of Alfred-Workflow. -- Alfred-Workflow (for Python) GitHub | Documentation A state-of-the-art Python library for Workflow developers. Being about a year late to the party, I've taken the opportunity to steal all the best ideas from other libraries and circumnavigate the bad ones, combining a plentitude of goodness into a library for the best language for Workflows (Python, natch). The library is simple to install, has no external dependencies, is very well-documented and maintained, and boasts an eye-wateringly high feature-to-size ratio at just 140 KB. Main features Catches, logs and notifies users (and developers) of errors in Workflows. No more confusing, silent failure. Super-simple, yet powerful data caching (e.g. from a web service) and storage. Easy-to-use storage of Workflow settings. Keychain access for secure storage (and cross-machine syncing) of sensitive data, like passwords and API keys. Tunable and understandable Alfred-like fuzzy search (e.g. got matches Game of Thrones as well as Baby Got Back. Or not: that's up to you.) Now with solid support for multi-word queries. Extremely lightweight, but full-featured, HTTP library with Requests-like interface, but just 12 KB instead of > 2 MB. Convenient access to standard OS X icons, for high-quality, familiar icons without adding size to the library. Also available via proper English. Pre-configured, built-in logging to enable simpler Workflow debugging. Painlessly run (update) scripts in the background without blocking your workflow, so you can still show "old" results while fetching new ones. Supports Alfred's new (version 2.3) modifier-specific subtitles. Simple support for 3rd-party libraries your Workflow relies on. "Magic" arguments to make developing/debugging Workflows so much easier, especially when helping less technically-inclined users. With "magic" arguments, you and your Workflow's users can open the Workflow's log file in, its cache and data directories in Finder, and its root directory in Finder or Terminal from the comfort of Alfred's query box. You can also delete the cache/data/settings if something is corrupted. Your workflow can update itself via GitHub releases. Accent-folding, so you can search non-ASCII text (e.g. voilà will be matched by voila) Functions to support migrating settings/data from older versions of your workflow. Well supported and kept up-to-date with Alfred's features as they are added. Alfred 3-only features Workflow variables Advanced modifiers Alfred 3-only updates Re-run Script Filters And as you can see from the above links, there is extensive documentation, including a two-part tutorial on building a Workflow from scratch. Examples Here are a few examples of how you can do some pretty cools stuff in just a few lines of code. A simple Workflow I made to search Packal in ~90 lines of code. A simple Workflow to search your recent Pinboard posts in ~50 lines of code. A polished, user-friendly, wicked-fast Workflow to search your recent Pinboard posts in ~200 lines of code. Remember, each of these Workflows also has—for free—full error-catching and -logging support, and the ability to open its log file (which contains all errors) via Alfred's query box. No need to ask users to grub around in ~/Library or flounder in Terminal here. This is not the Workflow library 2014 deserves, but it's the one it needs Selected workflows based on Alfred-Workflow ZotQuery, by Stephen Margheim, and one of the hottest Workflows on the forum. Gmail Client for Alfred by Fabio Niephaus. See the forum thread. Convert by me. Convert between units offline. See the forum thread. And dozens more. Testimonials — me — Stephen * = might be taken a wee bit out of context Feedback If you have any bug reports/feature requests, add them either here or on GitHub. More info The documentation is the definitive source of information on the Alfred-Workflow library. The User Manual and Tutorial provide fairly extensive information both on how to use Alfred-Workflow and write Workflows in general (if you're new to this lark).
  3. Packal: Github: As a web developer, I love to use Safari Technology Preview. However, typing Safari in Alfred always drives me crazy becuase I have to choose which Safari I want to open. I developed this simple workflow so that I can now launch Safari Technology Preview by typing webkit or wk into Alfred. You can also pass an optional URL to the command. If you do the URL will be opened inside Safari Technology Preview. If no URL is passed, the application will simply be activated.
  4. I've created a small workflow that automates something that I've find myself doing very often: copying a website as hyperlink text and pasting it into the footnote of my notes to track my sources. Simply type copylink to see a list of open browser tabs (currently for Chrome and Safari only). Then, select one to copy the title of the page linked to the URL. Download v1.1 | Github See Github page for release notes. Hope you'll find it useful. Let me know of any bugs or feedback below. — Charlie
  5. Web Server Easily start a web server and add files to it (v 1.3.6) ------------------------------------------ Update 1.3.6: - Port number wasn't copying to clipboard when checking the IP Address. Update 1.3.5: - New and Better IP addresses checker. My Thanks and Credits to Shawn Rice. - Now php.ini and index.php files are hidden as well. - Fixed some other bugs. I hope the initial setup works properly now. Update 1.3.4: - Uploads won't overwrite existing file with same name anymore. - Moved user defined port file to Workflow data storage. Update 1.3.3: - Auto-refresh page after upload is completed! - New notification banner saying "Upload Completed". Yay. Update 1.3.2: - Upload feature revamped. Now you can Drag and Drop files and then upload You can even rename them before uploading. - It seems PHP has upload and memory limit. So uploading big files wasn't working. Hopefully everything works now. Or at least 2GB files. Update 1.3.1: - HUGE mistake. Sorry. The last update wasn't copying the new files to the Server folder. Update 1.3: - Added ability to Upload files - Now you can check your Local and External IP addresses - Set the Server Port number to any Port you want Update 1.2.1: - ***CRITICAL*** Fixed huge typo bug. The server wouldn't stop if your local IP address didn't start with "10" Update 1.2: - Fixed an issue with the File Action "Add Files to Web Server". Update 1.1: - Changed Server folder location to Workflow Data storage. (Thanks, Shawn) - Added Readme content. ------------------------------------------ Requirements: - Mavericks or any prior OS X with PHP 5.4 Description: The default server's port is set to 21025. To access the web server folder, open your browser and go to your local IP address at the mentioned port. Example: "" You can access your Web Server folder from any computer in the same network. If you want people from outside your local network to be able to access your Web Server folder, you have to clear the port in your router's settings (Google "port forwarding"). After clearing the port, use your external IP address instead of your local IP address. Example: "" Also, the Web Server allows you or people who are accessing it to upload files, as long as the file is an allowed extension. This limitation is for security purpose. Instructions: + Keywords: - "server": Lets you start the server (if it's not running) or stop the server (if it's running). - "server open": Open the Web Server folder. This is where you put the files you want to share. - "add": Copy files selected in Finder to the Web Server folder. - "server ip": Check what's your Local and External IP address. - "set port": Set the Web Server port number to any port within the valid range of 0 and 65535, so long as it doesn't conflict with an already assigned port. + File Action: - "Add Files to Web Server": Copy selected files to the Web Server folder.

  6. Hey Everyone I'm trying to figure out if Alfred has a specific functionality. Like many of you, I do a crazy amount of email, and I'm constantly searching for something in a browser, copying the URL, and then pasting in an email client. My dream is something like MixMax (chrome + gmail plugin that allows '/' search), or the command+k shortcut in google docs (see image below), which works in any applications. My question - is there any way using Alfred, to enter a google search term, see the top 10 results, choose one, and then paste that URL, without ever leaving Alfred (and never opening a browser)? Thanks for any help! (PS - I understand that the example below is creating a hyperlink. It's just for illustration. I'm interested in pasting the actual URL in any context.)
  7. This is my first ever workflow that I shared with people. It is a simple list filter with a lot of different links to various websites for asking questions on stack overflow, creating threads on reddit and few more. Here is the repository with it and here is the download link. Description : a simple list filter for various online web submissions including asking questions on stack overflow creating threads on various subreddits on reddit asking questions on certain forums creating github repo / gist and any other web submission I personally use It all goes into one list filter and from there on you can filter with a set of prefixes. More specifically : s: prefix will filter for asking questions on any one of stack exchange sites. r: prefix will filter for creating new threads on various reddit subreddits f: prefix will filter for asking questions on various forums like Alfred Forum g: prefix will currently allow you to quickly create new repository or new gist w: prefix is for all other websites like creating new hacker news thread or new codepen I kind of wish that list filter would allow the same fuzzy matching that file filters provide. That is in file filter, this matches : That is I can kind of skip the dot and go straight to what comes after. Same with semicolons. In List Filter, this doesn't work. That is if I have these few entries prefixed with w : I can't do this : Nothing gets matched. Aside from this, I am pretty happy with the workflow, hope some of you will find some use out of it too.
  8. Hi can anyone help me create a web search that works in Alfred with the following website: Much appreciated. Thanks.
  9. So I was using Bing, which was its own issue, but now it's my default Alfred web search. I've disabled it in the preferences, but it still shows up. Is there anyway to get rid of it?
  10. Hi there Alfred community. This is a mod of David Ferguson's awesome Google Suggest Workflow. The only difference is that it uses DuckDuckGo to do the actual search in the end. I put more details over on the candler blog, but it should be pretty straightforward. Update May 8, 2014: Updated workflow to default to the new DuckDuckGo Next. More details here. Download Google Auto Complete to Download Google Auto Complete to DDG Enjoy! Here's a screenshot:
  11. it seems workflow support neither pac file nor https , even not allow me to set a port of a host file. i hope i can use the auto proxy by a pac file which is configged by system network setting.
  12. Just wanted to bubble up a new post to let you know I just updated my DuckDuckGo workflow from over a year ago to support the new (and lovely) DuckDuckGo Next. This is still a mod of David Ferguson's awesome Google Suggest Workflow. The only difference is that it uses DuckDuckGo Next to do the actual search. More details over on the candler blog. Download Google Auto Complete to DDG DuckDuckGo Next actually has autocompletions, but I wouldn't know how to get those into the Alfred workflow yet. For now the autocompletions still go through Google Suggest. Here's a vintage screenshot: Enjoy and happy searching!
  13. I wonder if there is a chance to get a web interface or at least an API for Alfred Remote. This would allow other devices than iPhones and iPads as Remotes. In my case, I have a very old Android Tablet beside my iPad and it would be great to use both devices as remote. Thanks Tobias
  14. Is there a way to toggle a web search to open in the background only, without changing the active tab? I often do a bunch of web searches at once, but it's inconvenient when the browser changes away from the page I am looking at.
  15. I've created a Alfred 2 workflow for remotely inspecting an iOS device by name using Safari's remote web inspector. You can view the source and download on GitHub.
  16. A simple file filter to search all bookmark (keyword web) and web browsing history (keyword hist) files accessible to Spotlight. Why use this instead of the default Alfred functionality? Well: More targeted search, less clutter in default results. Smarter search: History search searches the URL, bookmark search ignores it; JavaScript bookmarklets are excluded from bookmarks searches. Searches bookmarks in / Delicious accounts registered with Delish and Webbla, including tag search (Webbla, needs OpenMeta enabled, Delish works out of the box). If you’d like the workflow to support more browsers and bookmark / history formats, please attach an example of a pertinent bookmark and / or history file to this issue. As usual, repo is here, direct download there. Updates: Version 1.0.0 hotfix 2013-10-23 – fixes Alleyoop updating (you need to redownload), workflow file renamed Version 1.0.1 2013-10-25 – update for final Mavericks tagging scheme

  18. I'm using OS X 10.6.8 with Alfred 2.0.4 When I'm in web search and click on the button 'add custom search' nothing happens. I get no drop down boxes, nowhere to place the URL, nothing. I have tried a number of times, the same happens every time. Appreciate your help
  19. Get Google Cache of a URL with this workflow! Easy to use: In Alfred, enter the following and press Enter: cache URL Download Alfred Cache here.
  20. Just a simple workflow to trigger a crazy AppleScript I cooked up a few months back. Keyword is "ingredientlist" (mine triggers on "ing"). Triggering it will run the AppleScript in the background and let you know once it's done. Download it now or keep reading for more details. How it works: The AppleScript grabs the URL of the front Safari window (only Safari for now) and pipes it through Recipe Distiller. Then it strips out everything but the ingredients on the resulting Recipe Distiller page. Each ingredient is added as a task to an OmniFocus project named "Recipes". You must have a project named "Recipes" in OmniFocus. Mine is a Single Action list. A notification will trigger when the script is done adding the ingredients to OmniFocus. Caveats: Will only cleanly pull ingredients from sites that Recipe Distiller can understand. Almost everywhere I've found a recipe I've gotten clean results. Some sites may grab something other than ingredients. Keep an eye out for errant items. There will always be a blank task before and after your ingredients. This is a bug that I now use as a feature; it surrounds the newly imported ingredients so I don't confuse them with other tasks. The script does not save the URL or page title from Safari. When I use this script I also grab that info with this OmniFocus bookmarklet. Once the ingredients are all in OmniFocus I nest them under the task created with the recipe name and URL. Why would anyone want to do this? Because you can. Oh also because sometimes I'm at the market and I look at interesting recipes I've saved and can then grab any ingredients I need. So go get it and get cooking. Download
  21. I would like a checkbox next to the "Encode query..." and "Encode spaces" that disables the character escaping for the {query}. Rationale: For us developers who use Alfred everyday in our workflow there are times (for example when working on REST services) where I'd like to create a set of searches like: keyword: s3dev url:{query} where I can trigger it in alfred: s3dev 5002/some/rest/endpoint/5012 and it will take me to Currently it will escape the forward slashes (and other url characters). I'm hoping this will be a popular suggestion and easy to implement seeing as it's just bypassing whatever escapeString() Alfred is using.
  22. Here's a workflow to shorten a pasted URL using Inspired by the Google search that allows alternation between Safari and Chrome, I also added the option to preview an already shortened URL using Notification Center if alt is pressed. This mostly builds on existing workflows, but thought I'd post since I don't believe the script has yet been ported from version 1. Enjoy.
