Uninstall with AppDelete

Recommended Posts

If you use AppDelete to Backup or Uninstall Applications on OS X, you may like this Workflow.
You can use a Hotkey or the Alfred Command "uninstall" to send the selected Application to AppDelete.

When you hit ENTER, AppDelete will open up.

Hi there!

 

I'm the dev for AppDelete and thanks for making a workflow for my app.  Hey if you get in touch with me via my site maybe I can help promote this with your permission of course... :-)  Hope to hear from you thanks!

Nice workflow, I use a mod of Mr. Eriksen's classic AppCleaner extension and now workflow to do this for AppDelete and CleanApp. Very easy to mod...

 

@Schneppi - I think it would be a good idea to add a file action to the workflow. That way, anybody can find an app whether in Finder or just plain old alfred searching -> action it -> run the AppDelete script. Uninstall file filter is nice but not really necessary when you think about it. Jonas' workflow has it as well but I never use it. Check out that simple bash line that does the magic.

 

For those who like this or want something similar for another "uninstaller" app that they prefer I highly recommend you check out Jonas Eriksen's "AppCleaner" Workflow which can, by just changing the app name be used for AppDelete, CleanApp, etc... Very useful. Find it here: https://github.com/aiyodk/Alfred-Extensions/tree/master/AlfredApp_2.x - I modded it to use AppCleaner and CleanApp awhile back.

 

Sorry to disrupt, just thought it could be enhanced a bit and also let others know that it's very easy to mod the workflows to work with all the other uninstaller apps.

Hi!

I'm unable to add this workflow to Alfred2. I'm not sure what I'm not doing that I have to. I tried to open it with Alfred that didn't work. What am I missing here? I know this is a newbie question.. any help is very much appreciated. TIA.

Do you see an error code?

 

Normaly, you just need to open the *.alfredworkflow File and Alfred will import it.
