  1. I suggest alfred support workflow auto download and auto update details as follows, * a config file, whose each item corresponding a workflow * each item contains: download addr(github addr)、current version get addr(github addr)、etc. * auto download, add a new item to the config file, then alfred auto download new workflow and install * auto update, alfred workflow check for update everyday and auto update background by this way, user could use workflow more conveniently.

  10. Cardhop Workflow

    I played around with Cardhop and here is a workflow that I made. I wanted to get more time before sending some workflows to the forum to setup a repository and with an auto-update to the workflow, but I didn't have the time yet for that. And since some people mentioned that they would like a workflow for Cardhop, here is one! Features: Keyword "chc" : Search a contact in Alfred and open it in Cardhop Keyword "chs" or hotkey : Send the query to Cardhop. If the query is empty, it tries to get the selection from the front application and send it to Carhop (In short, you can select the contact information on it's website or email and call "chs" from Alfred and the selection should be sent directly to Cardhop). You can use this action to send the selection or pass a string to your Favorites list (alternative to keyword: chf) or to the Cardhop's Actions (alternative to keyword: cha). Keyword "chf" : Send a string from your Favorites list directly to Cardhop (could be used as a Snippets/Bookmarks list to rapidly write a query to Cardhop that you know gives you the right information in it without the need to write it all). Write your list in the Workflow Environment Variables "Favorites" and separated by semicolon (";"). Ex: Call mom home;Mail boss work;facetime Complicated Name;website businessName;/MyTag;Direction dentist... A variable "{q}" could be used to have a placeholder for a string that you want to set just before sending to Cardhop (ex: "Email {q} work" where {q} could be changed to any name at the time that you invoke the workflow). Tip: To directly activate an action in Cardhop, it seems to delay the input until it has done parsing the query, so you can rapidly press Enter a second time when you select an item from your Favorites list in Alfred and it should run the first action that Cardhop returns. Keyword "cha" : Show a list of possible Carhop actions. If arriving to this function using the Send feature (chs), then the selection or query would be appended to the Cardhop action before sending it. Hotkey to Send selection to Cardhop : If you prefer to send the selection directly to Cardhop with a hotkey instead of a keyword Fallback search to send the query to Cardhop : If you want to write the information directly in Alfred without any keyword before. To make it works, you would need to add the Fallback search into the Alfred Preferences at: "Features/Default Results/Setup fallback results/+/Workflow Trigger/Send to Cardhop" External trigger to send a string to Cardhop from an external script. Other external triggers are set if you want to pop the Favorites list or Actions list from an external script. Append/Prepend string : Add a string before or after the main string before sending using a predefined list or any string if the query doesn't match an item in the list (Could be useful to have a list of predefined group/tags) (See "Workflow Environment Variables" and "Navigation" lists below) Workflow Environment Variables: Favorites List: See keyword "chf" above AppendToSend : Set a predefined list of string to append using the Append feature (ALT key) PrependToSend : Set a predefined list of string to prepend using the Prepend feature (CTRL key) Navigation: CMD key : Go to the Send feature Actions List (chs) ALT key : Activate the selected item and append extra string (using the AppendToSend list) CTRL key : Activate the selected item and prepend extra string (using the PrependToSend list) Tip: If you want to use Cardhop as the application to open from Alfred when you are viewing a contact with the Alfred Contact Viewer and press CMD+O: Insert "x-cardhop://show?id={uid}" into the Alfred Preferences at "Features/Contacts/Advanced/URL Handler" instead of using "addressbook://{uid}". This should do the same as the keyword "chc" but without the need to write the keyword before searching for a contact and use directly the built-in contact search of Alfred Download Link: https://nofile.io/f/ObcZMuqzaGT/gbCardhop.alfredworkflow Have fun!

  13. Apologies for what is a pretty basic question for most people in this forum, but does anybody know how to click a menu item that contains quotation marks? More specifically, in the Mail app, I would like to take one of my mailboxes offline (as opposed to taking them all offline). However, the menu items include quotation marks around the name of each mailbox. For example, from the menu's hierarchy, the menu might look something like the following: Mailbox Online Status Take "GMAIL" Offline Take "AOL" Offline Take "Hotmail" Offline Take "Prodigy" Offline Under this setup, what should my applescript look like if I wanted to click the GMAIL option? I've tried the following code below, but it doesn't work. if application "Mail" is running then activate application "Mail" tell application "System Events" tell process "Mail" click menu item "Take \"GMAIL\" Offline" of menu 1 of menu item "Online Status" of menu 1 of menu bar item "Mailbox" of menu bar 1 end tell end tell else display notification "To take a mailbox offline, Mail must be open." with title "Mail - Not Open" end if I suspect I screwed up how to deal with quotation marks in the string, but I can't seem to figure it out. I've tried adding more slashes and moving them around, but I haven't had any luck. I'm a newbie, so thanks for any help you can lend!!
  14. Hi, I am trying to create a workflow that would append some text content I select on Google Chrome. Here are the steps: I select some content on a website (no copy to the clipboard, just a selection) I hit a keyboard shortcut Alfred runs a command that would add the selected text in a specific file. I created a workflow with a "hotkey" and a "run script" actions. It is not working the way I want as every time I use workflow it appends the selection and the command (.i.e: "echo "{query}" >> ~User/Downloads/test.txttextselectedongooglechrome") I guess I have missed something in the "run script" action as I do not really understand the difference between "input as argv" and "input as query". Thank you.
  15. I've managed various Facebook pages over the years (currently 3), and lately I've been wishing more and more to do some of that management via Alfred. This week I started hacking on it a bit, but I decided to work on a personal Facebook workflow first to get the feel for working with the Graph API, and then moving on to one for page management. I wanted to post about it here, just to see (a) if there was much interest in it besides for my own usage, (b) if so, what Facebooky things do you wish you could do via Alfred, either personal or page related? What's working now or will be shortly... Login to Facebook app. A regular (text) post to Timeline Link post to Timeline. Photo post to Timeline Post video to Timeline Upload photo to album Upload new video File action to upload photo to Timeline. File action to create new album with multiple photos. Other ideas I've had... List last n items I posted (posts, photos, videos) and open in browser. List my groups and open selection in browser. List my events and open selection in browser. List my friend lists and open selected list in browser. Search, narrowed by any of the above items. If anyone has ideas/suggestions about the best way to organize the different items below for easy access in a workflow, I'm all ears as well—there's a lot of options here, and I want to make sure it's as easy as possible to use quickly!
  16. Hi, On one of my 2 macs, I can launch Airmail 3 using workflow (keyboard shortcut) on the other Airmail is greyed out in the workflow. At first, I thought it is only because, on the mac it doesn't work, I have "Airmail 2" in my /Applications and my workflow refers to Airmail 3. Yes, I have "Airmail 2" in Applications while the application version really is 3.5. Even after reinstalling the application, resetting the right application path in the workflow, Airmail 3 is still greyed out and can't be launched with a keyboard shortcut.
  17. Hi, I just installed ohmyzsh (https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh A collection of themes and plugins to supercharge zsh. Basically, these are jst .zsh and .md files) and wanted to browse through its files and folders. All these these and plugins are installed in a folder located at ~/.oh-my-zsh I created a workflow with a file filter action but couldn't make it work. I guess it is because its files and folders are located in one hidden folder. The workflow works when the folder is renamed ~/oh-my-zsh.
  18. I can't really figure out why this is happening, but all my workflows that are context dependent seem to have stopped working after I upgraded to macOS 10.13. Take Audio Switch for example, even if the System Preferences app is closed, when I activate the first choice filter via "audio switch" RETURN, it then activates the System Preferences app and then the Alfred menu ignores the contexts (e.g. possible output devices in this case) and goes straight to online search query results. In the case of Packal Update, the app does not even run. If the webmaster on this forum let me, I will post a video of my issue. https://youtu.be/DDSf34jPkzw
  19. Hey guys, one of the best workflows ever imho is the leo workflow which translates several languages and gives inline response... Since yesterday i get a Timeout occured error... Workflow is created by: Bastian Ohmer (https://github.com/psistorm/alfredapp) On github you can read: Dear Leo Dictionary Workflow users, Today (2017-03-17 09:52) I received a polite e-mail from the company that runs Leo Dictionary asking me to remove all occurrences of this workflow as it does violate their terms of usage. They need the money generated from ads to run their free business and by providing this tool you won't generate any clicks and hits. They still allowed the private usage of the tool (so if you have it, keep it), but I may not publicly provide the tool any further. Sincerely, psistorm So my guess is, that leo.org now completely blocked the calls, since it was still working for me even after this message in march. Anyone the same issues? Thanks in advance and regards, Daniel

  21. Hi all! Mega supporter since the beginnings and first time trouble Since a fresh 10.12.6 install, Alfred 3.4.1 doesn't seem to recognize anymore: - my custom web searches' keywords. Those web searches are simple and straightforward, have worked fine for ever, not been changed and! Still work with the 'test' button in edit mode. But typing a keyword in Alfred treats it like a random input (see example screenshot). The web searches are enabled. - any workflow keyword. Be it default, custom or freshly imported 3rd party (see example screenshot). The workflows are activated. Thank you very much for your time and help! Best, Alexis
  22. Hi, I have a calculation I have to make a lot. {query}+({query}/0.971) How would I set this up in a workflow (so I can make calculations quicker than the normal calculator)? Thanks in advance!
  23. Version: Alfred 3.4.1 I am new to Alfred and am running into a problem. I created an AppleScript to send information from Outlook 2016 to OmniFocus 2. I have it set to run an external script (makes it much easier for me to make changes and test). I created a hotkey to run the script. When I launch the script with the hotkey, I get this error: Unable to run task! Reason: launch path not accessible The external script may not exist, or does not have execute (+x) permissions. I have tried putting in the script folder for OmniFocus, Outlook and Alfred, but get the error each time. I am sure I a doing something simple wrong. Thanks in advance for your help!
  24. Hi New here. I find that Alfred's shortcuts replace my application shortcuts. I would like it the other way around. i.e. if my appication uses Command-G then Alfred cannot use it. Is there a way to do this? Thank you S_
  25. Hello! I am brand new to Alfred! I could use some workflow suggestions for college students & busy parents. Some favorite/popular workflows for general use would be appreciated too. I am also looking for a workflow that will launch specific applications & URLs when I login to my MacBook. Thanks! Heather
