  1. Alfred 4.3 is now in pre-release with gorgeous improvements to theming. We've added the ability to choose a native macOS Visual Effect view to back Alfred's window, which makes it easy to create native-looking themes, as well as more control over rounded corners. We've created a couple of themes as examples, but I'm sure you'll create some fabulous themes too! Light Experimental theme Dark Experimental theme Below are the key things to check out when creating themes in 4.3. Please read all the way to the end of this post for a few important notes!

Search Firefox bookmarks Search Firefox browsing history Run bookmarklets Activate & close tabs Add you own custom scripts The workflow requires you to install a corresponding Firefox extension in order to communicate with Firefox. After installing the workflow, run ffass > Install Firefox Extension to get the extension. Once the extension is installed, everything should just work. The workflow is fairly customisable. Y

    macOS Big Sur

    Hi, currently using the macOS Big Sur Beta and was styling Alfred for the upcoming makeover of the macOS UI. I prefer a look as close to the system UI as possible. Light: https://www.alfredapp.com/extras/theme/eHfgpMFvON/ Dark Mode: https://www.alfredapp.com/extras/theme/NWnuAKel02/ A little unfortunate, that there is no option to round the corners on the selection background elements, they appear very pointy in the new environment of even more rounded corners in macOS Big Sur. Hope you enjoy!

    New Bear Alfred Workflow

    I've created a new Bear Alfred workflow here: https://github.com/drgrib/alfred-bear It is faster compared to the current Bear Alfred workflow because it is written in Go instead of Python and has optimized SQL queries. It also adds tag searching and autocompletion, link pasting, and clipboard content to note on creation. I do appreciate the author of the original Bear Alfred workflow because I started mine from his design.

  10. @Mr Pennyworth While it's clever in concept, I'd personally discourage using the multi-Script Filter method you're using, even though it's unlikely to, in isolation, cause any performance issues with Alfred. If somebody installed multiple workflows which used the same method, then Alfred will be running multiple scripts on every keypress. There is definite scope for an enhanced native command history built in to Alfred. This would take some thought and design, and would be configurable and user opt-in. I would also think about a easy-on temporary private mode, much like a browser,

  11. This is a workflow for searching and adding bookmarks to Raindrop.io. To search your Raindrop.io bookmarks, open Alfred, type r, space, and then your search query, and the results will show directly in Alfred so that you can select one and press enter to open it in your browser. Raindrop.io collections and tags will also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with

Safari automatically reads your text messages and asks you to auto-fill any two-factor codes it finds: I don't use Safari (I use Chrome) and I was sick of having to manually type the codes from my messages. This workflow reads your message history and finds the most recent 5, 6, 7, or 8 digit two-factor codes. When you select a code and press <enter> it is copied to your clipboard, or you can press <⌘+enter> and it will copy the code to your clipboard and paste it into the active application.

    macOS Big Sur

    Just to let you know, I'm working on new theming options which will allow for rounded corners and also to use the native macOS Visual Effect view (the blur effect you get in Spotlight and various windows around macOS). A side effect of the using this native view type is getting proper window surround, and no fuzzy corners. Here is an example:

  14. Hey! I forgot to chime in when I saw this originally - very impressive! Richer content natively within Alfred is something which has always been on the plan for the future, but this really does provide a solid stepping stone. It wouldn't be a huge amount of effort to post a distributed notification for the quicklookurl, but due to a whole host of reasons (of which you outline some above), I wouldn't make Alfred post this by default. Having said that, for fun, I wouldn't be adverse to make it a defaults write on Alfred's prefs just to see this working better, and see whe

  20. At the moment, when you assign a key combination to a particular hotkey in Alfred, it keeps you from using the same key combination with a different hotkey. While this make sense in most scenarios, when the hotkey is assigned to a particular app - as specified in the Related Apps panel of the hotkey, and selecting the option that limits the hotkey to when the app takes focus - it seems unnecessary to restrict the user from using the same key combination with other apps that might have focus. As a result, I'd like to request this feature be added to Alfred. Without this ability, it

  22. Right, for the next 4.3 pre-release, I've added ⌃↑ and ⌃↓ to navigate the history in the default results at any point (even if you have typed a different query). These shortcuts by default are used in macOS for Mission Control, and Application Windows, so these associations will need to be disabled in the macOS Mission Control prefs for these shortcuts to work within Alfred. I should nave the next pre-release out some time this week.

    Alfred Markdown Notes

    Markdown Notes help to manage Markdown files in a directory with powerful full text search (supports & and |), tag search or search for todos ( - [ ] or * [ ]) . It also allows to quickly create new notes based on custom templates. I started to write this to replace the ton of Note taking apps that I used a while ago. I spent a lot of time to get this to work and the setup is a bit complex but once you went thru the steps it can indeed replace your note taking app. The best MD Editor for this purpose is Typora but any other MD editor works as well.

  25. For those who love Notion.so (really great documentation & more tool), you will know how useful it would be to get instant search results from Notion in Alfred. To that reason I've created a workflow that does exactly that, allowing you to search your Notion.so workspace from Alfred, showing instant results, and the ability to open the browser to your selected page. There are two env variables required (the notion search api isn't documented), these can be obtained by inspecting the network request from a notion search, as documented in github below. C

  28. The simple answer to this is Alfred Remote *will* get a major update, but I can't give you a timescale. To keep Alfred's quality as high as possible, we are extremely selective over which features bring the most value to our wider user base. Alfred Remote constitutes a minor part of this user base, so while we have continued to add features to Remove via updates in Alfred itself, the core Alfred Remote app has remained as is. While it would be nice to do a minor update to Remote to include some of the newer iOS features, Apple has evolved iOS significantly since Remote

For anyone landing on this thread: the previous iTerm scripts have changed ownership (disclaimer: I’m the new author) and have been rewritten from scratch, so if you have any issues try the newer versions. You can find them on the new repository, or by using the old links as they will redirect to the new one.

    Search IMDB

    Because the previously shared workflows for IMDB-integration didn't work anymore I made my own. This is my first publicly shared workflow and this is also my first python-script. Probably things could have been programmed better, but it works for now. So its not really fancy, but I think its workable, as long as IMDB doesn't change the API. Hope this workflow is some use for you all. https://github.com/wotell/alfred-workflow-imdb/blob/master/bin/Search%20IMDB.alfredworkflow

  37. @vitor Absolutely! ☺️ Isn't the former what most programmers strive to do? Rigorous considerations of memory usage, cpu usage, disk IO, network latency etc, and meticulous design considerations. So I thought it doesn't need defending. Be as it may, I stand corrected. Looking at all the examples you posted, you're definitely not averse to quick-and-dirty hacking and tinkering The conclusion that I drew that it is a core MIT-vs-Berkeley philosophical difference seems to have been wrong!

    Reminders

    @codydingy I ask you to not take this the wrong way. My goal here is to help you get the help you’re asking for. Consider this: If I do something for you for free, it’s a favour from which I may bail at any time. But if you introduce $5 to the mix, it becomes a business transaction—an obligation. There’s a threshold (different for everyone) that defines when one is willing to trade freedom for money. While it’s appreciated that you offer to pay for someone’s time, there’s fewer coding tasks one would accept (and not regret) for $5 than for $0. The commitment isn’t worth it1

  46. Hi there, is there a way to set "tab" to go to the next result (just as when you type a search into your Google Chrome search bar and then hit tab to scroll through the results) instead of having it be auto-complete? That would make it much easier to use Alfred! Having to move your right hand to reach the arrow keys to do this takes much more time than if one could use the "tab" key.
