exchangeratesapi now requires a an access_key, the change was made without notice https://github.com/exchangeratesapi/exchangeratesapi/issues/117

In the meantime adding a fixer API key will fix the conversion problem https://github.com/biati-digital/alfred-calculate-anything#currency-options

 

I'll look in to this to see if keeping exchangeratesapi is worth it or find an alternative that does not require an access key. Still I recommend adding a fixer API Key as it provides support for many more currencies.

Hi vitor, thank you for your input.   I'm searching information about alfred_workflow_data but not sure exactly what you mean, are you referring to the folder stored in ~/Library/Application

Hi I am new to this. When I am on Alfred and I type 'ca', the calculate anything menu showed. But when I hit return or click on anything on the menu, the whole workflow just closed and nothing happened. May I know how to fix this ?

hello@Albert Z and welcome to the forum! you only need to invoke the workflow menu to set up language, currency etc, otherwise just enter your conversion request (e.g. "1 gallon to liter") directly into alfred and Calculate Anything will interpret it... that's the beauty of it!

@Albert Z Do you mean that you are able to convert units but if you hit return it disappears? that's exactly the way it works, if you convert units, currency, etc, and Press return in a result, that result is copied to the clipboard and Alfred is closed as that's the end of the workflow. It does not automatically paste the conversion, you can modify the workflow if you want to do that.

 

So to resume, you only hit return if you want to copy the result to the clipboard, you do not need to press return to make conversions, they are processed automatically as you type in Alfred.

 

Please let me know if I understood correctly what you meant.
