Exporting Workflow Progress


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm wondering if there is, or should be some sort of progress bar for exporting a workflow? I have one with quite a large codebase and having a few issues exporting it. 

 

When I hit export the dialog disappears, but nothing appears in the specified directory. I thought it was completely broken, but then I looked in the directory maybe 10 minutes later and there was the file there, and at about 100mb. Strangely, when I quite Alfred Preferences the file was removed. 

 

I noticed that the Alfred Preferences process was using a lot of CPU so I assumed that it was still going, just taking a while to zip everything up. The problem is, now I don't know how long I should leave it for before utilising the alfredworkflow file, because there's no signal to tell me it's complete.

 

I wasn't sure if this is a bug, a suggestion, or a known issue so though I would just get some feedback to see if anyone else had had this problem.

 

Cheers,

There definitely shouldn’t. If your Workflow takes that long to export, it’s without a doubt too big. What are you including in it?

Hi @vitor

 

Thanks! I'm running a webserver with a bunch of photos and composer packages. I have decided to package the workflow without the codebase and pull it in as part of a setup action in the workflow, this keeps the file down to a few kilobytes Nd solves the problem :)

 

I also had the same 'issue' duplicating the workflow. No progress bar / loading icon despite it actually working away behind the scenes.

 

Obviously it's ideal to keep the file size down so its not really a problem for me anymore. 

 

Thanks for the response.
