Take screenshots with a keyboard shortcut and upload them directly to imgur. Will produce both a sound and a visual notification when done, and copy the resulting direct link to your clipboard.  

I’ve noticed that today as well. It seems the issue was with one of the automatically updated tools, whose bug was preventing it to be updated further.   Download it again (now at a later version)

What matters to me is the notification at the time it appears, not how it looks in the notification center. And there, the difference is not subtle at all. It’s the difference between lookin

Hi,

 

Looks like the link isn't actually being copied to clipboard.

 

Any idea how to fix this?

 

Edit: I checked the delete url text file, It reports the upload as being failed. Any workaround for this?

 

Make sure you’re on the latest version.


Open the debugger, and post the output.

@vitor, let me hijack the thread for a simple question. I see in this workflow you used terminal-notifier rather than Post Notification. What's the reason for the choice?

 

All my workflows use terminal-notifier (soon to be replaced with notificator) for notifications.


I do it so I can post notifications with a custom icon (the one in the workflow). In terms of experience — and being a designer — that matters to me.

And there, the difference is not subtle at all. It’s the difference between looking native or looking like it was called by another application. I want it to look native. I don’t care at all about the icon on the right side because that’s not what identifies an app.

Do you have a clue on how the creator of Spotify Mini Player achieved this:

By including a full-fledged app. There’s an easy way I could accomplish that with `notificator` as well, I need only change it’s app name when including it. I’ll make the change soon (but it might take a bit to include in all Workflows).

Did further testing and it appears the notification in the notification center is dependent on the app’s name on the Finder, not the name it has in the Info.plist. In that case, I probably won’t do it and it’ll remain with the name notificator, seeing as the alternative is a ton of extra work that I don’t deem worth it for each Workflow, as well as a great loss in flexibility when reusing.


You’re the only person that ever complained about this, so it clearly isn’t a big deal, and like I said what matters to me is the notification as it appears, not as it stays in notification center.

I agree the title in Notification Center is not that important. Actually my main need is to set a custom icon for error messages on the right side. I would like the ability to have the workflow icon on the left side and a custom icon on the right side.

 

At the moment there is no design difference in my workflows between a notification that states a task was completed and another one that states some error occurred.

Updates:

  • New icon.
  • Updated OneUpdater
  • Use Notificator
  • Code cleanups.
  • Added recentscreenshots script filter. It keeps the links to the most recent uploaded screenshots, and allows you to view them on the web or delete them (really useful if you used the wrong shortcut and uploaded something you meant to only have locally).


To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days (15 or less) and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.

Nice addition! Thank you!

Had you not shortened the update interval of OneUpdater?

 

No, I forgot. I only shortened it on the OneUpdater Workflow itself. That message is semi-automated, so I didn’t even remember I mention the 15 days there.

Maybe I'm missing something obvious but I can't get this to work. I take a screenshot, then when I type "upload screenshot" into alfred nothing happens. It just goes to the default websearch.

 

Upload screenshot is a File Action; you call it by selecting a file and pressing its shortcut (see Alfred Preferences → File Search → Actions → File Selection).

 

But the best way to use the Workflow is by directly setting a keyboard shortcut in in the Hotkey Trigger and call that. It’ll take the screenshot and upload it automatically

Thank you, I got it now. I guess I've never used that feature.

 

I am, however, getting "Upload failed" in my clipboard.
