Create new file in finder

Recommended Posts

I've recently started receiving an error with a Alfred workflow called "Create New File in Finder"


Ruby Code

_osa1 = 'tell application \"Finder\" to set insertionLocation to insertion location as alias'
_osa2 = 'return POSIX path of insertionLocation'
activeFinderPath = (`osascript -e "#{_osa1}" -e "#{_osa2}"`).strip

filename = 'untitled'
extension = 'txt'

if '{query}' == 'help' || '{query}' == '?'
	system("open", "http://ianisted.co.uk/new-finder-file-alfred-2")
	if '{query}' && '{query}'.include?(?.)
	  filename = '{query}'.split('.')[0]
	  extension = '{query}'.split('.')[1]
	file = [filename, extension].join('.')
	path = [activeFinderPath, file].join
	if (File.exists?("#{path}"))

	template = [extension, extension].join('.')
	if (File.exists?("templates/#{template}"))
	  system(%[cp "templates/#{template}" "#{path}"])
	  system(%[touch "#{path}"])


Error Message on Debugger

[input.keyword] Processing output of 'action.script' with arg 'testing.txt'
[ERROR: action.script] -e:15: warning: string literal in condition

Anyone have an ideas?

You'll be better to post your problem at the workflow thread to have the discussion there (look at the attached link). But for your question, I think if you change this line:

	if '{query}' && '{query}'.include?(?.)


	if !'{query}'.empty? && '{query}'.include?(?.)

Then I think this will clear your error
