How about an Rss plugin that works well with new html viewing mode?

I have a folder.jpg cover image file in almost all my mp3 music album folders.

Maybe a plugin can be made that utilizes the new HTML output mode to make searching for a mp3 album much cooler!

Example:

the user inputs "mp3 beatl".
FARR searches some folders for subfolders that
(1) contain the searchphrase "beatl" and
(2) contains a "folder.jpg" file
FARR displays the folder.jpg for the matches in HTML mode at some set size (200x200 for example), in this case some beatles albums.
When the users runs a match, the corresponding album is sent to the default mp3 player (either by running the related m3u file or sending all mp3 files in the folder to the player)

edit:
This plugin would involve these steps I think:

1. user inputs "pluginalias searchstring"
2. FARR feeds matching folder paths to plugin
3. plugin loops over each match:
if it contains folder.jpg, append that to a html with a link to .m3u
4. FARR displays the html in Html View Mode (showhtml HTMLCONTENT)

Does it seem possible to do based on the javascript plugin system? (if so then I'll give a shot at making a crude version of it myself)

On the Aliases/Groups tab, it would be nice to be able to click on the columns to sort them A to Z.

I haven't ran accross it, so I was hoping someone could make a plugin that lets you post updates to ping.fm.
there is a tutorial for updating with launchy here if that helps

a currency converter would be very useful, considering how we need to compare prices from different regions. i remember that there was a thread that discussed this but nothing concrete came out of it.

lanux, see this for ultrafast conversion from one specific currency to another. It now works again with a little help from czechboy.

Apart from that doing, for example, "igo 200$ in €" gives a google page with the conversion. The output is somewhat cluttered but can be read without scrolling.

Maybe Google Calculator could be also used Wink
http://czb.dcmembers.com/#Google_Calculator

Try "gcal 125CZK in USD=", you can even do aliases of such a type:
group alias name:convert
regular expression pattern:^convert (.*)$
results:
$$1 CZK to USD| dosearchontrigger gcal $$1 CZK in USD=
$$1 SKK to USD| dosearchontrigger gcal $$1 SKK in USD=

I have a huge and growing list of my personal aliases as well as the ones associated with the fantastic plugins that have been so generously created. 

REQUEST: How about a plug-in that will pop up a list of aliases, either a complete list or by alias type or alias group.

jdd: type agroups into farr, it'll display all of farr's aliases smiley

ps: for more lists, type listfarr. For a listing/description of the core aliases, see this post.

jgpaiva:  When I type agroups into farr, I get a very long list which includes things I never use.  This is my wishlist:

- I would like to be able to call only certain groups of aliases, especially the Custom User Alias file 'NewAliasFile.alias' group.

- I don't want to delete any core aliases but it would be nice to be able to select (e.g. checkbox) which ones will show up when I type agroups.

- It would be nice to be able to filter aliases beginning with a certain letter.  For example, if I were to type 'agroups m' it would be nice for all the aliases beginning with 'm' to be listed.

I am not sure if this is a reasonable or realistic request.

Thanks,
jdd

you can uncheck whole alias files to disable them, or uncheck individual alias files to disable them.  that should also prevent them from showing up in agroups list.

it seems like it might be a good idea to have a special keyword associated with an alias file that you can type to list all aliases in that alias file only; i'll add that to todo list.

you can also make your own alias which contains a list of other aliases.
ie make an alias called: afav
and in that alias have results like:
games | restartsearch games
mydocs | restartsearch *.doc

then type: afav
to show your menu, and select an item to trigger that search.

I don't know if this is even possible, but I've played around with AutoHotKey a bit and have found tremendous value in the "Favorite Folders" script.  When you activate the "Favorite Folders" hotkey, it will bring up a pop-up menu that contains a list of folders (user-defined, in an INI file).  If you activate the hotkey (in my case, the middle mouse button) on a Windows Open/Save dialog or in Windows Explorer/My Computer, when you click on one of the folders in your menu, it will change the current folder in the dialog or window to the favorite folder you selected.  If you activate the hotkey on a different type of window, the selected folder will open a new Windows Explorer window at that location (of course, FARR can already do this part).

It would be awesome if FARR could provide similar functionality.  For instance, activate FARR, type the folder name, press Enter and it would change the location in the dialog or Explorer window (if it was the last focused window before FARR) to your specified folder.  I realize you can type in a path directly in the filename box of the open/save dialog or the address bar of Windows Explorer, but this would also harness the awesome powers of FARR (aliases, history, etc) to get there a lot quicker.

CatamountJack, that is a GREAT idea.
FARR keeps track of the window that was active last before it was triggered, and so i think this idea could even be implemented without even writing a plugin, just using aliases and an external commandline version of this autohotkey script.

If someone makes a commandline version of the autohotkey script which takes 2 parameters, a folder/file name and a window handle, and does the switching, the rest is easy.

good find, favorite folder is a really nice one Wink
but being a FARR lover, i really wanted to use FARR !

so i found a workaround for the time being... (i've been using it for almost a year i think...)

i always had a "favorite folder" alias which is set as below :

regex pattern
^f (.*)

result
Favorites search $$1 | dosearch +folder_fav +open_fav -alias $$1

+folder_fav is a folder containing shortcuts to my favorite folders
+open_fav is an action modifier which opens an authotkey script :
Open | C:\_Garbha\Program Files\OpenFav.ahk "$$1"

and here is the autohotkey script (my explorer is directory opus) :
Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. file = 1
  2. if (%file% = "C:""")
  3. {
  4. Run, C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe /cmd Go "C:\" NEWTAB
  5. }
  6. Run, C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe /cmd Go "%1%" NEWTAB
  7. }

should only be
Run, C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe /cmd Go "%1%" NEWTAB

but for some reason a shortcut to C:\ turns out to be C:".... no idea why (FARR bug ?)

then i discovered a great tool ! Flashfolder http://zett42.de/flashfolder/

so now i use FARR in conjunction with autohotkey and flashfolder to achieve this goal...
here is the script :
Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. file = 1
  2.  
  3. if WinExist("ahk_class FlashFolder_3832795") {
  4.  
  5. if (%file% = "C:""")
  6. {
  7. ControlSetText, Edit1, C:\, ahk_class FlashFolder_3832795
  8. }
  9. else {
  10. ControlSetText, Edit1, %1%, ahk_class FlashFolder_3832795
  11. }
  12.  
  13. ControlFocus, Edit1, ahk_class FlashFolder_3832795
  14. Sleep, 200
  15. Send, {Enter}
  16. }
  17.  
  18. if (%file% = "C:""")
  19. {
  20. Run, C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe /cmd Go "C:\" NEWTAB
  21. }
  22. else {
  23. Run, C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe /cmd Go "%1%" NEWTAB
  24. }
  25.  
  26. }

basically what this does :
if flashfolder exists (that is a open/save dialog exists) then autohotkey changes the flash folder path to the one coming from FARR (then enter to reflect that in the open/save dialog)
if not then it opens the folder in my explorer

works flawlessly  cheesy

of course ruling out flashfolder of the equation would be even greater !

i'm no windows programmer, and i don't know how to change the location of the open/save dialog...
if you use the file name box to change the path then you loose the filename...

@mouser:   I'm encouraged it might be easier than I thought.  I don't do a lot of programming, but I'll see if I can modify the AHK script to work as you suggested.  Looks like I'll be right out straight for the next week or so, so I probably won't get to it immediately.. but if anyone else wants to take a crack at it, I wouldn't stop them  smiley

@nitrix-ud:  That sounds like your work around does just what I'm looking for as well.  As mouser suggested, I hope it can turn out to be a little simpler in the end, but I'll give yours a shot too when I get a chance!
