Some useful Alfred 2 workflows

Today I finally bought Alfred 2, a really nice update. It’s great, but I had to recreate some scripts I got used to while using version 1. You can find them below.

Alfred

 

CopyPath

CopyPath copies the path of the currently selected Finder Item to the clipboard. Just launch Alfred and type “path”. Also, thanks to Joachim’s suggestion, you can now set a keyboard shortcut to trigger the workflow without needing to ever launch Alfred.

Copy IP

Copy IP your current local IP, either Wi-Fi or Ethernet. It includes 3 commands:

  • ethip copies your Ethernet IP
  • wifiip copies your Wi-Fi IP
  • ip [interface] copies interfaces IP. It’s meant for power users. Note: on Macs usually en0 is the Ethernet interface, while en1 is Wi-Fi.

RevMove

RevMove checks your clipboard contents and removes any line containing “.rev”. It is useful if you download from file-hosting sites, such as Netload, because uploaders often include .rev files to their upload to be able to extract your files also some parts were corrupted/not available. But when everything works as it should, these files are pointless and waste time and bandwidth to be download.

MAS Search

MAS Search lets you search for an app in the Mac App Store. Just type mas followed by your search terms.

 

If these are not enough, you can find many, many more in the Alfred 2 Workflow list, which also features my very own CopyPath.

  2. Luca,

    The copy path is really great. One suggestion for update is to drag a blank keyboard shortcut into the Run NSAppleScript for users to set. I did this, and it copies the path to the clipboard bypassing ever having to toggle the Alfred bar.

    Thanks for giving this to us, it’s really tremendous. A feature that has made me not like Finder has now been reconciled!

    Thanks!

    Joachim

  3. I took your Copy IP, and added pbpaste to the second line and used a Post Notification with
    IP copied
    {query}

    Thanks for the workflow
