Find And Run Robot / Re: Password Managers that work with FARR?
« on: December 28, 2019, 12:50 AM »
Mouser; thanks for the quick reply... I didn't have FARR set to search the actual password or username... just the nickname of the account. Say for example I have 25 different godaddy account for different clients... FARR + Roboform 7 + everything search made it super easy to invoke FARR, type a few characters and hit enter to get logged in.  Those were the good ole days.

I see that bitwarden ( opensource password manager )  has a CLI... has anyone used that with FARR?

Thanks for any additional ideas!

Find And Run Robot / Password Managers that work with FARR?
« on: December 27, 2019, 03:03 PM »
I'm looking for a password manager that works well with FARR. Before RoboForm updated to version 8 all of the login files and safenotes were in individual encrypted files. The file names were not encrypted so FARR ( with everything search addon ) could easily search and launch logins and safenotes.  Roboform version 8 now keeps all logins in a encrypted database that FARR can't search so I'm looking for a new alternative.  Thanks for any suggestions!

Thanks very much for the team work on this! I got it working... here are my settings:

Alias Name
skype call

Regular Expression
^call (.*)$

Result ( update your path to your skype location )
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Skype for Desktop\Skype.exe --_="skype:$$h1?call"

Thanks very much for the detailed instructions!

Hi there, I dont think the way you think it will work.
You could Alias to "Call_Name_X" and execute it. (as fixed statement for skype:number call)
But adding on-the-fly different numbers.... I doubt it.
My voice recognition software in conjunction with a Python plug-in called vocola does a great job of adding in the on-the-fly different numbers. Maybe a simpler way to explain it would be that I need to get some text that is not a URL over to the URL bar of the browser. So just passing some text from find and run robot over to the browser URL field.

Thanks for any suggestions.

The layout may be a little  different ;) , but I solved this problem in NANY 2016.

Please check here: https://www.donation....msg394054#msg394054

You can open any file in different programs using one user defined alias.

It can show a list of multiple programs depending on the extension of any file.

The list of programs appears when you append <space><dot> to the file name in the search field.

you can also define a program like notepad to open any file.
Thank you for this suggestion… Evidently I missed the notification of your response a couple years ago…  I checked at the link that you provided but did not see a downloadable plug-in… Is this a plug-in or just some methods for tweaking the aliases? Has anybody done a little video to watch alias/regular expression beginners through this type of thing?

Thanks very much for any suggestions.

I use voice recognition in conjunction with find and run robot for lots of fun automated tasks.... one of them is triggering calls to phone numbers/contacts via skype.

If I add the following text ( skype:+1555-555-5555?call ) to my URL field in my browser and press enter it will launch skype and call the number... All good so far.

I'm hoping to create an alias in FARR that will pass this call command text over to the browser... or potentially directly to skype.

Thanks for any suggestions on how to go about this. Thanks very much.


Thanks for the quick reply… I'm happy to hear that. I wish more programs these days were portable… It would make transitioning between machines much easier. Thanks for making awesome software. :) Almost time to donate more btc :)

I was just wondering if anybody knows if the portable version of find and run robot is faster or slower or the same speed as the version that is installed. Thanks for any feedback.

You are right... either way it is working :)  :up:

Thank you!

thanks for the suggestion... I feel foolish because I had firefox set in the "Overide default internet browser" field... I removed it and it works properly now. :) Thanks!

Hello and good day…

I recently upgraded my FARR … Before I was able to launch my password generator program directly from FARR... But now when I launch the password generator program it wants to open it up in Firefox.… As if it were downloading a .exe file.

I attempted to create a shortcut that I put on my desktop… If I double-click on this directly it will open up the password generator program properly. However if I try to launch the shortcut from within FARR it will still try to send it to Firefox.

Thanks for any suggestions on how to prevent that from happening. :-)

Cool… Thanks for sharing!


Hi, does anyone else have an issue with recurring tasks that you've completed not showing? Example: I have a recurring monthly task to pay a bill.... after I complete the first months task future instances of it do not show in FARR RTM. Thanks for any suggestions!

Find And Run Robot / good addition to find and run robot or not?
« on: July 31, 2012, 02:45 AM »
I've worked up a screenshot of what I think would make find and run robot a bit more helpful to me..... does anyone else think it would save them time too? Thanks for your feedback.

I love my time tracking app called TimePanic... it lets me jump from billable task to billable task with a single click... but there is no easy way ( besides copy and paste ) to get that time into my FreshBooks invoicing app.

I'd love to be able to invoke find and run robot to easily switch between billable tasks.

FreshBooks has an api that might facilitate this but none of the other timers out there allow for simple single click transitions from task to task.

Anyone interested?

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Alias: Send Twitter updates from Farr
« on: December 16, 2010, 09:39 AM »
Any updates on this? what alternative way of tweeting have you developed since?

Is there a way to set the due date at the same time as creating the task? Or must you create the task and then find the task to set up the due date?

I know how to set up the tag at the same time as setting up the task... for example:
rtm add task do something /tag:whatever


Find and run robot is working perfectly to launch my Roboform pass cards in my browser... however sometimes instead of watching the pass cards I would like to open them up in edit mode with Roboform... after looking through the help file it looks like using something like the following might work... any ideas what I should use exactly to make this work?

roboform.exe ++ selectedpasscard.rfp

Thanks for any tips.
