With this workflow you can convert a string of characters into their ASCII code values and vice versa.
You can convert from and to hexadecimal, binary and decimal.
The results will be displayed as soon as you run the workflow and copied to your clipboard when you press enter.

You can either enter a string or just use your clipboard content.

This extension is written in AppleScript and does not require an internet connection to work; the conversion is done inside the script and does not rely on an extern service.

Enjoy.

Convert ASCII-text to binary and vice versa via Alfred

Update:
I wrote a new and better version of this extension. You can find it here.

Here’s another fun thing to do with the Alfred Powerpack.

With this extension you are able to convert regular text to binary code. Or decode binary ASCII to human-readable text.

Just type “bin con ” into Alfred followed by either ” en” and the text you want to encode or ” de” and the text you want to decode.
This extension will do the conversion for you and copies the result to your clipboard.

BinToASCII

This extension is written in AppleScript and does not require an internet connection to work; the conversion is done inside the script and does not rely on an extern service.
It also uses growl to notify you, when the script is done.

Enjoy.

UPDATE:
The extension uses Growl v1.3.
If you use a earlier version of growl, change
“tell application “Growl”” to
“tell application “GrowlHelperApp”“
