Clean Duplicate AppleScript Dictionaries

Recommended Posts

In another thread (http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/792-alfred-applescript-dictionary-installed-multiple-times/), a solution was posted for a problem in which AppleScript dictionaries would have multiple entries. These duplicates don't have any effect on your system, and removing them doesn't either.



There's just one command: "clean dict"



(Now with Alleyoop support).

The command that I used was here:


/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user &


Try that in terminal, and see if it works for you. (http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/792-alfred-applescript-dictionary-installed-multiple-times/)


I'm using 10.8.2, so the command might be different between different different versions os OS X.

The script included is in php, but it just has a shell_exec() call with the command inside of it. I just pushed a new version of the workflow that changed the escaping, which might make it work better for people. Also, I added alleyoop update functionality to it. So, it can now be self-updating (although I don't think this will ever need an update).


I can't really test it again because I need to wait until some program updates itself again in order to get that duplicate entry to test. Maybe when we get the next Alfred2 update I'll test it again.
