Trying to chain workflows to no avail (Switch light/dark mode + change light/dark wallpaper)


Recommended Posts

Hey folks, I'm pretty new to workflow creation so I'm sorry for my noob question.

 

I'm currently using these 2 workflows

https://github.com/mermaid/alfred-dark-mode-toggle

http://www.packal.org/workflow/change-desktop-background

 

 to 

- toggle/pick system light/dark mode

- change to the next wallpaper from a folder of 2 wallpapers (light + dark) – a workaround that works but I have to change the wallpaper manually at least once a day

 

Yesterday I found a better workflow that seems to allow me to set a wallaper based on a file filter. 

https://github.com/packal/repository/tree/master/com.sayzlim.wallpaper

 

I tried to chain the toggle workflow + wallpaper workflow in a way shown in the screenshot that seems to work with 1 specific file, but with the side effect of always opening that image in Preview which annoys me. 

 

I'd like to have a workflow that would allow me to

- toggle the theme to the other one (or light/dark in particular, whatever is easier) 

- pick a random wallpaper from a folder (one folder for light, one folder for dark)

- set the wallpaper along with the theme

 

Thanks a lot for any help and if you know of a simpler way to achieve this, please let me know!
