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.

Change the default language of an application with Alfred


I just finished my work on a new extension for the Alfred Powerpack.
This extension detects all available localizations for a specific application and let’s you choose one of them.


Then it changes the language of the application and restarts it.
It’s easy to use and could come in handy if you want to see another localizations of an application or if you don’t like the localizations in your language without changing your system’s default language.

Just download this extension, install it and it’s ready to use.

Download!

This extension is written in AppleScript and Unix.

If you experience any troubles with this, hit me on twitter.
Enjoy.

EDIT:
If you don’t have the Alfred Powerpack or you don’t want to use Alfred for this task, here is the source code of the extension.

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”“

Share current song on Twitter via Alfred


This extension is no longer supported.
I recommend this extension by David Ferguson.



With this extension you’ll be able to share the song you are currently listening to on Twitter via Alfred.

What you’ll need:

The Alfred Powerpack to install the extension.

console_tweet, a pretty useful ruby gem.

To install console_tweet:
Open Terminal and type:

$ gem install console_tweet

(You need Xcode or GCC to execute the gem install command.)
After installing type:

$ twitter setup

…and follow the instructions.

After the gem is ready, download the extension.

The extension is written in AppleScript and is localized in Englisch and German.
It uses growl to notify you about the tweet.

If you experience any issues with the extension, contact me via twitter.

Enjoy.
