Workflow variables ignored for symlinked workflows [Fixed 3.2 b747 pre-release]

Hi Team,

 

I've noticed this:

 

-Install Getting Started Workflow Variables workflow

-Move the workflow directory to Downloads directory for example

-Do a symlink:

 

Example:

MacBookPro-Vincent:[12:39:14]/Users/vdesabou/Dropbox/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows>
ln -s /Users/vdesabou/Downloads/user.workflow.7D127576-3643-442A-896D-46794F2058EA testkeyword

 

-Eventually restart alfred and alfred preferences

 

After that, all modifications to keyword variables are ignored. So for example if I set "ttt" as variable, it does not work.

 

I have latest version of Alfred 3.

It was working before, but somehow got broken after an update, but I can't tell you which one.

 

Thanks

I can see why this is possibly happening as Alfred doesn't fully resolve symlinks before writing the info.plist, but I'm not sure why this would have worked before but not now.

 

Either way, I'll fix this for the next release :)

 

Cheers,

Andrew

I'm pretty sure because I added the possibility to rename all commands for the Spotify Mini Player workflow on June 30th (https://github.com/vdesabou/alfred-spotify-mini-player/issues/132), and I've always worked in a symlinked manner for this workflow. So I'm pretty sure that it worked with Alfred 3.0.2

Funny. I'm not seeing this at all, and almost all of my workflows are symlinked.

 

Alfred 3 definitely has more issues with symlinks than v2 did, however, like failing to export symlinked workflows.
