Apostrophe in filename issue

Recommended Posts

I made a simple workflow a while back to rename tv show files using 'tvnamer'.


Most of the time files don't have the episode's name within their title and it's even more uncommon for there to be an apostrophe as well. So since Alfred doesn't offer escaping single quotes, I was wondering what I could do to fix this.


The workflow just has (one or more) files passed through to:

/usr/local/bin/tvnamer -q -c /Users/Daniel/.mytvnamerconfig.json {query}

For bash (likely what you’re using), your quoting options should look like this:


Particularly since you’re dealing with file names that you have no idea what they’ll be, these options will get you covered the most.


Thanks Vitor.
