  1. 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!
  2. 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 should really migrate each theme and workflow into their own repos under my account. If I'm going to go down this path (with a key motivator being the ability to add auto-updating to my Workflows), are there any other sugges
  3. 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 — 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. [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
  11. 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
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. What it does is fast change your system appearance to Dark/Light mode. osmode <option> Further details see DarkOrLight on GitHub. Download | Source
  17. 👋 Hi. Long time lurker stopping by to share something I've been working on. I'm calling it Pacmax (PM). Akin to Packal (which is a great website that I'm sure we all know and love) PM is my attempt to fill what voids I feel exist in the current landscape for the other Alfred lovers out there, like myself. Namely: It works from the source, dynamically updating content from GitHub. No accounts are necessary to add Workflows and Themes, because I'm curating submissions. Adding to PM is as simple as submitting the GitHub repository. Repos with files that use the appro
  18. Hi there! I wanted to ask if there is a way, with a button shortcut to have a file open in Photoshop? For example, I have jpegs automatically open in Photoshop by default through my Mac SysPrefs... but I still have pngs open in Preview. Is there a way to have a button to have it "open in... application" or just "open in Photoshop" as an option, like how we can press Shift or CMD to preview or open the file location? Thanks!
  19. 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).
  20. It would be great when you say that "we have over a dozen examples and over 40 templates" (or words to that effect) if you appended that webpage (Alfred Blog > Tips and Tricks > Learn to Create Workflows with Alfred's Built-In Examples) with a follow-on webpage and link with a list of those examples and templates that you speak of, serving as a repository for us to go to for a one stop place to download from.
  21. It would be great if the workflow sidebar could be flexible making it convenient for me to resize it to fit my workflow descriptions.
  22. I'm just getting started with creating my own workflows and I have a couple questions I haven't found the answers for yet after a bunch of searching, reading and testing. A quick note to begin with, I'm writing this partially as an exercise to improve me proficiency with AppleScript, as frequently painful as it is. It does seem like a good workflow to use it for since its functionality is almost entirely reading information from and sending commands to the iTunes AppleScript Dictionary. JXA is a little further down the to-learn list. 1. What is the proper way (if there
  23. Hi all, I'm trying to run a node.js script with Alfred, using this workaround: http://remy.bach.me.uk/blog/2014/03/writing-alfred-workflows-in-node/ It seems to work to get scripts to run without modules, but when I try to use the npm 'fast-csv' module, running the Alfred workflow with my script gives me the error "Cannot find the module 'fast-csv'". I've installed 'fast-csv' globally, so I'm not sure what else to try. (The script runs correctly when using the terminal.) Any ideas? Thanks
  24. Hi Everyone! New to Alfred and its world of workflows. I'm interested in creating my first two workflows. This is what I'm hoping to achieve: 1. Copy the contents of a text file (whether it's txt, nfo, html, rtf etc.) to the clipboard. I know there's a terminal command for that: pbcopy. I want to have this ability either through File Actions or as a workflow input. 2. Define a workflow input to open the most recently download file (in other words, the most recently added file in the macOS's Downloads folder). Help would be very apprec
  25. Thanks in advance for the help! I'm trying to pass two (or multiple) variables to AppleScript. For example, “keyword query1 query2” and then get both arguments into AppleScript. Or something like “keyword query1^query2” and then split them. I feel like I’m almost there, but missing something… I guess I should add that I’m using Alfred 3.5.1 with Powerpack. I read this article: but my dumb brain couldn’t figure it out… Any help would be greatly appreciated. My use case for this particular workflow is AppleScipt, but I'd be interested in knowing how to do the sam
