Create Multiple Tasks in Omnifocus on iOS

Throughout the day I think of things that I need to do after work or this coming weekend. The best way for me to not forget these is to quickly get them into Omnifocus. I've been using Drafts on my iPhone and Alfred on my Mac to quickly create tasks … [Read More]

Create Dropbox Links from Alfred

I've always treated Alfred as a Finder replacement. The speed at which I can find and take action on files is faster than Finder.app or Spotlight will ever be able to do. Because of this, I want to have a quick and easy way to share Dropbox files from … [Read More]

Clearing Multiple Notifications in Mac OS X

If I haven't used my computer for a while, I'll end up with multiple calendar notifications that I have to painfully close one by one. I went searching for something that would let me close them faster, but nothing I could find did quite what I wanted. Nearly every day … [Read More]

Searching Todo’s in Code

Happy 2016! It's been a while since I've gotten something up here. Last week at work I was working on a fairly large refactor of our front-end. Large pieces of code were being moved around and others re-written to be cleaner and more understandable. Throughout this process, I was leaving … [Read More]

List Server Favorites in OS X 10.11 El Capitan

I'm using Alfred a lot less these days. Many of my workflows have been easier to build in Keyboard Maestro. The remaining few that are left in Alfred are ones that I heavily depend on, one of which is accessing my Server Favorites in OS X. Up until OS X … [Read More]

Using Contacts.app with TextExpander v2: Objective-C and JavaScript

I was generally happy with how I was using Contacts.app with TextExpander to create snippets for my emails, phone numbers and addresses.

Using Contacts.app with TextExpander

Changing your email or phone number isn't fun. You have to tell everyone, update all of your online accounts, and make sure your TextExpanders are up-to-date with the right information.

Filling Forms with PDFPen and Javascript

My adventure with Mac Javascript Automation continues. Things still aren't easy and the documentation is poor, but I'm finding that it's still easier to write automation scripts in Javascript than it ever was with Applescript.

Automatically Attach tmux in SSH Session

I frequently work in ssh sessions and have found terminal multiplexers like tmux to be invaluable. The problem I was constantly facing was having to re-attach or create a new session each time I would ssh into a machine. Sometimes I would accidentally create a new session when one already … [Read More]

If your employer uses ADP, you'll know how terrible their website is. I always dread having to go to the website, but I like to download my paychecks every two weeks. I started playing around with writing a script to download them using Python, but decided I should check Github … [Read More]
