Packal: Workflow and Theme Repository

Recommended Posts

I have also read that one can get timeout issues while uploading workflows to Packal. Is there a possibility that I can't upload the .alfredworkflow file because of my slow internet connection (just 10 Mbit/s) and I am just timing out? I tell this because I have to wait some time until I can see the file was not uploaded. I mean that I don't get any instant warning saying the file can't be uploaded because of its size, I really have to wait some time as the upload seems in process until I can see it's not actually done and Packal doesn't return any reason.

I get timeouts/broken links the majority of the time when simply browsing through it. I assumed it wasn't being maintained anymore.

I got an error when posting a new workflow on the bundle id, but my workflow posted regardless. The bundle id was com.danieljchen.8ball . It said it was an invalid entry.

 

I had this problem, but I couldn't post anyway.

 

EDIT: never mind I figured out what to do.

Well, I am from Brazil and you live in Germany. Here is widespread that our connection speed (as almost everything else) is generally crap and yours is great, so that was an assumption I made.

 

Until now I hadn't got any error message but I just tried to upload the file again and I finally got this dialog with a message:

So it seems clear that the problem is the file size.

 

To keep Packal a bit more open, I used Github as a backend. Github restricts (unless they changed this) unknown filetypes to 10mbs. And, even though `alfredworkflow` files are `zip`, they are still technically unknown.

Hey Shawn. How’s tricks?

 

I’m pretty sure GitHub have since upped the limit to 20/25MB.

 

 

It would be a very welcome improvement. I'm fully supporting the campaign "Make Packal Great Again"! ?

For you, with your fat-ass workflow. Did you write it in Java? ;) 

 

How big is it? If it’s only a bit over, can you get it under the limit by using the maximum zip compression level?

It's 12MB. You had already tried to compress:

No chance. As the k2pdfopt executable is already compressed, jacking up the zip compression to maximum only save a few hundred kB vs no compression at all. I thought deleting the .pyc files might help, but they're tiny, too, compared to k2pdfopt.
