My Alfred extensions, I also take requests

Note: I posted this in the wrong forum before, hopefully this is where it belongs

As the title says I make extensions for the launcher Alfred's Powerpack. I have just started out but am offering to make anything that sounds interesting to me. My existing few are here (I hope you like them).

All extensions are free of course.

For those who don't want to look through the blog, here is a summary of some of the extensions:

Windows Booter (my favourite) boots you straight into Boot Camp but doesn't set it as the default.

Consider Unpausing, pauses iTunes and reminds you in 5 minutes. Perfect for when you stop to watch a quick clip online.

Snap! Takes a picture with your iSight or FaceTime camera and saves it to the desktop with no need to open Photo Booth.

London Tube, uses Growl to show you the status of all the London Tube lines.

Time Somewhere, uses Growl to tell you the time anywhere in the world.

I'd love to have a Reminders extension, like Siri but text-based on a computer. Even more awesome would be if it could parse text input.

There are a few options now already, for example:

You can use this to add a reminder in your iOS reminders list.

Or you can use QuickCal which has its own smart reminders functionality. You might want to create a new reminders calendar in iCal just for this. QuickCal does fantastic natural language parsing and can easily work with Alfred.

You could also create a task in any number of task managers using existing Alfred extensions. For example there is one for Wunderlist.

I downloaded Time Somewhere the other day and tweaked it to remove the | that wolfram pops in the search results :-

Code:
RESULT=$(php -f wolfram.php -- "time in{query}");

TIME=$(echo $RESULT | cut -d '|' -f 1)
DATE=$(echo $RESULT | cut -d '|' -f 2)

echo $TIME
echo $DATE
Here's a few of my extensions :-

A nice commenter just noticed that there was no download link for Windows Booter (oops!). I've put one up, hopefully not too many people just left the site after that

Is there a way to have Alfred add an item to a list on Grocery IQ's web site?

I don't use the service myself but a quick check on their website reveals no API, e-mail in service or any other sort of hooks that would allow you to add tasks via Alfred...

Thanks for taking the time to check it out - pity there doesn't seem to be a way. Their iOS app works really well with their web site, being able to add items to a list with a few keystrokes would be really nice. Oh Well, not that big a deal really.

This might not be as useful as some of those others, but it would be awesome to be able to use a command to run an audio file, preferably in the background.

For example: I work in an open office with lots of conversation and... sometimes 'crickets' is an appropriate response to some comments.

edit: I guess this is already possible with a simple terminal command afplay. For anyone interested, it's afplay path.

As has been said, there is no API, however I will look into doing it with something like urllib in python when I have some time.

I've updated Consider Unpausing and Time Somewhere.

Consider Unpausing now lets you enter a number of minutes until you're reminded, and Time Somewhere makes the looks changes as suggested above and now disappears.

There is now an alternative version of Time Somewhere which shows the place in the Growl output. This is a rewrite still using @jdfwarrior's script but now has an applescript behind it.

All the shell extensions now have support for the Extension Updater extension so if you redownload them and download Extension Updater then you'll save some time and not be left behind.

I've made a new filter/extension combo called "Relaunch" for Alfred 1.1 that does exactly what it says on the tin.

Hey adamtheturtle,

Thanks for the extensions. I love your work.

I was just wondering if it is possible to make a Retina Display size change Alfred extension? I am constantly switching between the 1920, 1680, 1440 resolution, and a quick call using "retina -1 -2 -3 -4 -5" for the different displat config would be great.

Another idea for an extension would be "facetime {name}"


thanks so much!

Hi! I'm new to Macs and I LOVE Alfred! It's probably bought me over from PC's forever lol.

I was wondering can you please help make some sort of extension for Sport Schedule and scores? Perhaps with Growl if that's easier or even without if that's easier.

For example, if I go to Google and just type "Lakers Schedule". I just a result from Google itself with the upcoming 3-4 games. And If I type "Lakers Score", it'll give me the score by quarter for the current game if one is being played or for the past several games if no game is currently in play.

If you can get this to work etc. then I have one more request. Is there a way you can make it so like I have the option to kind of constantly query whatever API or source that Google or another site is getting it's game/schedule information so that say every 30 seconds (or however long I set it for) I'll get a growl notification of the score and game time update?

Thank you so much! I just follow a lot of sports but due to work I often cannot watch games. However, I make it point to try and keep up with the scores/schedules etc.
