  1. I'd like to add more robust DM support to my Twitter Toolkit for Alfred workflow. I've come up with a basic flow for how I think it could be achieved but would love your guidance and help on how to go about implementing it, since I'm not a developer: Authenticate a local Twitter client to get one's followee list; store the list containing IDs, usernames, and display names Load this list as a CSV into a List Filter Use dm to access type-to-suggest completion using that List Filter in Alfred's UI Upon actioning, open the URL prefilled with https://twitt
  2. I would find it helpful to interact with multiple Workflows right the context menu beyond changing the category: Specifically, I would like to: Enable/disable Duplicate Export Export metadata
  3. I understand that I can copy the Open Apps examples, paste in my 3rd party apps and start them using the example workflow; What I don't understand is, what do I do with the apps from my remote after I have opened them. There is no keyboard interface that comes with the workflows so I can't edit the files I open in these apps; so why bother opening an app from my remote if I can't do anything with it after I open it??? I may seem to be as dumb as a post to you but I just don't get it. (at least not yet)(I haven't quit trying).
  4. I've been exploring Raycast and one of its benefits is its deeper integration with SAAS like GitHub, Jira, Zoom, G Suite, Asana, and others. Given that all of these providers require authentication, I think it could be incredibly powerful if Alfred made it easier for Workflow developers to get API tokens from the most popular providers using a standard Workflow Object (either an Action (i.e. Sign the User In) or Utility (i.e. Get Access Token)). I realize this would require that Workflow developers would need to get API keys and do some extra leg work, but what I would
  5. My first (exported) workflow: Do Not Disturb, Limited - Toggle the macOS Do Not Disturb feature, optionally for a specified length of time. I was really inspired by CalmNotifications but I always forgot to toggle it back. Plus, I really wanted the indicator to reflect the current status, which didn't happen when the "set a plist value and kill NotificationCenter" method is used. Releases | Source
  6. With Catalyst apps and the rising popularity of native app deeplinking on the Mac, it seems like Alfred could better support routing x-callbacks or deeplinks directly to the corresponding native apps, rather than going through a browser first. Specifically, in Open URL workflow objects β€” rather than assuming that a browser is necessary β€” routing to a browser could be offered as an option that is enabled. The current still works, but it seems like Alfred should anticipate this change and get in front of it...
  7. Performance seems to be a tricky thing to diagnose, since it might be related to the individual's system specs or other configurations... but I believe I've noticed pretty consistently that larger workflows (i.e. with tens or hundreds of objects) has really choppy/jerky rendering performance when scrolling around. I expect the kind of dampening scroll effect in Apple Maps, but perhaps I'm comparing apples and oranges? I recorded what I'm seeing when scrolling around @vdesabou's epic Spotify Mini Player workflow here: https://dropover.cloud/aac3de Hopefully
  8. I created a simple workflow to make it easy to use a hotkey to add packaging tracking numbers of Deliveries.app. Get Deliveries Toolkit for Alfred It also offers keywords β€œadd”, β€œtrack” or just a β€œ+” followed by a space and then paste the tracking number to add a package to Deliveries: I also sent out this tip in my new Alfred newsletter.
  9. 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 timbu
  10. Currently if I right-click on an object, I get an expanded menu: But if I right-click on a connection line, I get a minimal menu: It seems like double-clicking on a connection line between two objects should cause a contextual insertion menu to appear: Thoughts?
  11. As I balance all sorts of projects in different fields, I create workspaces for myself using Alfred Workflows (keyword for the project opens all Apps, Websites, Finder Folders, scripts, etc. required for project). Often, there are many web pages and I creating URL actions for each is tedious. I would really love a "Open Multiple URLs" Action where I can paste in a bunch of URLs, separated by line breaks, and the action will open all of them upon trigger. Thanks for the excellent product!
  12. Update: I've finally finished cleaning up my repo and putting each Workflow and Theme into its own top-level directory. I think this will allow me to keep tabs on improvements, issues, and more over time. --- So it now seems like I'm going to be sharing/publishing several Alfred Themes and Workflows over time... (woohoo!). So far I've preferred to keep all of my themes and workflows in one master directory (probably because I saw someone else do this) but now I'm thinking (especially with how OneUpdater and @deanishe's Self-updating seem to work) that I shou
  13. I built the Twitter Toolkit Workflow largely to make it easy for me to quickly access Twitter's features on the web or in the native desktop app. I intend to add support for TweetBot. Ultimately it seems like I'm going to end up with a matrix of output URLs (https://, twitter://, and tweetbot://) that receive the user's query, and will be opened in the desired platform based on the Workflow `platform` variable. I'm not a programmer, so plan to build my workflow visually, but it seems inefficient to add conditionals to each keyword to support each platform.
  14. NOTE: This workflow has not been updated to work with Alfred 3.0 and above, and is known to cause issues. Use at your own risk. ---- Keep all the miscellaneous crap off your Desktop by sweeping everything into a "DeskDrawer" folder, which is easily accessible from our good friend Alfred. Download DeskDrawer v1.5 [updated 25 March 2014] Okay, the idea is not completely original β€” I've used apps like DesktopTidy and Unclutter to achieve this, but it's amazing how simple it is to replicate the basic concept with an Alfred workflow.
  15. I really appreciate how the GitHub Desktop app makes it easy to open repositories with different tools, using different keyboard shortcuts: I'd find it really helpful if Alfred Workflows offered the same functionality, and in particular if this "Open Workflow folder in Finder" allowed me to right-click and choose to open with a specific app, i.e. Atom, TextMate, or some other editor. Of course it would also be great if keyboard shortcuts were supported too.
  16. I make many keyword-based Workflows and I would find it incredibly efficient to be able to quickly duplicate an object using ⌘-D. Currently I can hit ⌘-C and then ⌘-P (copy and paste), or right-click and choose copy and then right-click and paste: ...but many apps (like Sketch) support ⌘-D to duplicate the selected object or objects: This would greatly improve my efficiency.
  17. I'm a heavy user of Bjango's iStat Menus, using it to check my system stats frequently. I also happen to be a heavy Alfred user, making my mouse trips up to the menu bar for iStat Menus feel really infuriating. I'd ideally like to open iStat Menus menu bar items using Alfred keywords. For example, if I type in "cpu" in Alfred, it will open the CPU stats from the menu bar, "ram" for "RAM", etc. I've searched everywhere for a workflow like this but can't find anything. I've conducted some research, mostly around how to get a readout of what menu bar items are called by the SystemUISe
  18. Christmas Wish for Alfred: I wish users had some control over the size of the left panel in Alfred's Preferences (not the sidebar, but the panel next to it). As shown below, I'd like to be able to drag the panel right - at times, when viewing my Workflows - as the current fixed version doesn't allow users to see much of their workflows' names. Personally, I keep a lot of resources to use as examples for building or modifying new workflows, but it's impossible to see their titles or descriptions under the current space allotment (i.e., even if I went to a less ridiculous naming conv
  19. Up until recently, my preferences and workflows synced between machines wonderfully. Something recently broke and I'm not seeing workflows sync anymore through Dropbox. I know Dropbox is syncing on both machines, as I just dropped a file from my desktop machine into it and I see it on my laptop almost immediately. Both Alfred instances are set to sync from my Dropbox folder. But for some reason, the workflows aren't syncing. As a test, I create a new one on my desktop and don't see it syncing over to my laptop. However, if I delete the Alfred.pr
  20. [I originally posted this on Reddit, but I'm posting again here to make sure that it's seen.] The tool itself is fine. Good improvements, but mostly invisible. My kids don't even know how to use the computer when they use a Mac without Alfred. Incredible software! I've been a user since 1.0 and a PowerPack user for just as long. Before that I used the Google task launcher thing, and before that, QuickSilver. What I'm interested in is a thriving workflow community. If you want to find workflows, you need to search too many places. Packal and Pacmax seem abandoned. You have
  21. I'm a noob and loving Alfred 2. I've imported a bunch of workflows and am wondering if they pose any security risks. Can malware, viruses or keystroke loggers be added to my system by way of an imported workflow? Are workflows safe? Does running anti-virus on them before import do any good? What precautions does Alfred 2 take to make sure that no malevolent code gets added to my mac? Thanks for the app. It's really well done!
  22. Hi, I need to know how to get my Workflows from my old laptop to my new one. I have downloaded the app and installed on the new machine but I need to know how to get my workflows.
  23. We can use Alfred on all our Macs. I have two – one for personal use and one for working. I would appreciate possibility to disable workflows on certain Mac so I would have enabled those used on personal Mac and others on my work Mac. There is such possibility in Keyboard Maestro app and I am using it and thought that Alfred could also include such option.
  24. How do I use a workflow? How do I make it run. As you can tell by my posts I am a 'baby' Alfred user. Thanks
