Default Folder X

Recommended Posts

Hi Dean,

 

I get a message on the new version that says "Updating DFX data this won't take a second."

 

It does not update the possible selections until you reload

 

Any thoughts?

Thanks

 

Nick

Hi Dean,

 

Regarding any extra functionality although I have mapped hotkeys to add to favourites and remove from favourites within Default Folder, it would be useful I think to have these functions as Alfred Actions?

 

Cheers

Hey Nick,

 

Regarding the "Updating …" message: I'm going to remove that bloody notification—it hangs around far too long.

 

But fundamentally, it's impossible to update Alfred's results live because that isn't how Alfred works. It only takes a couple of seconds to retrieve the new data from DFX, but Alfred's results only ever change when you change the query. For any given query, Alfred calls the script once. To run the script again, you must change the query.

 

Regarding favourite actions etc., the ability to add favourite folders via Alfred is coming in the next update.

 

Regarding the "hijacking" of your original post, when I push the next version, I'll update your post with a link to my post with the description, screenshot etc.

 

I'll try to get that done at the weekend.

Curious... love the workflow; however, don't like the notification -- I can go and look at it, but before I started monkeying around round I thought I would ask, since removing the notification was mentioned, has it been updated already somewhere?

No, I haven't changed anything since the initial proof-of-concept. Unfortunately, DFX 5 didn't work on my main Mac, so I had to uninstall it and re-install DFX 4, which isn't 100% compatible in terms of what the workflow does, so I didn't want to change anything and risk breaking the workflow for DFX 5 users.
 
I've just installed DFX 5.0.5, and that runs acceptably well (mostly), so I can continue working on the workflow now.
 
So, feature requests:

  • Get rid of the notifications.
  • …?

Updated to v0.3 which uses Alfred 3.2's awesome new re-run feature, so it does update results live when the cache is updated.

I am having no issues... just the nagging notifications :-)  Thank you sorry for the delayed response.

 

Turned this off, too!

 

Sorry the update took so long. As noted, DFX 5 hasn't been working for me. Alfred 3.2's new re-run made it irresistible, though.
