  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!

  3. @Chris Messina this is indeed a UI issue, however minor, as the underlying feature works as expected (all URLs are routed via macOS). Alfred should really dynamically be showing the correct default handler if possible. Taking suggestions from this thread (thanks for the relevant input), I've updated Alfred to show "Open With" instead of "Browser", and the default handler will automatically update as you type, for example: This should be in the 4.3.2 pre-release in the next few days. Cheers, Andrew

  4. Alfred GIF Search Download: Gif.Search.alfredworkflow Up-to-date README (this post is outdated) This workflow lets you search GIFs on Tenor from Alfred. Here's an example of searching and inserting a GIF in a google doc: Installation Download the latest release. In Alfred, run .setup-gif-search. Usage In Alfred, enter gif keyword followed by search query. Press ↩. Use arrow keys or mouse to browse the GIFs. To copy the selected GIF to clipboard: either ⌘↩ or ⌘-click To drop the GIF into apps

    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:

  6. 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

    Run macOS Services

    Run macOS services from Alfred… on the current selection on the clipboard contents on files via a File Action Installation Download the latest version from GitHub and double-click to install. Usage Use keyword services to run a service on the current contents of the clipboard. Configure the included Hotkeys to run a service on the current selection or clipboard contents. Use the macOS Services File Action to run on selected files in Alfred. For more info, see the README on GitHub.

    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!

  10. 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

Find and watch movies or shows instantly My workflow makes it really easy to quickly search for a movie or tv show, find the different services streaming the content, and go right to the content. Learn more here! https://github.com/dverb20/watch_now_workflow/releases/tag/v1.0 I promise it works much more quickly than the gif shows! I'd love some feedback or for someone to put in a PR for improvements

  15. @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,

  16. 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

  17. A few moments ago, we popped Alfred 4.1 on the pre-release channel. It's a big release with lots of tasty stuff for you to sink your teeth into. New workflow objects for integrating with files and the File Buffer Shared Hotkeys for workflows Embedded Snippets Contact Actions Built-in File Search Troubleshooting from the Help preferences And loads more! Take a look at the Update tab for a complete change log, as there's a lot in this release, which is free to all Alfred 4 Powerpack license holders. We'd love to get your help in

  23. I guess they were referrring to So storing both the encrypted data and the en-/decryption key in the same unprotected storage ("plainly on disk") is indeed a horrible idea. Storing it in a place that is potentially vulnerable to direct access via malicious websites in case the browser itself is attackable via a browser vulnerability is another issue. The latter is the reason why it is generally not the best idea to use a browser's own password management feature.

    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.

  31. 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.

  37. 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

    Microsoft Teams

    If it's an Electron app, then client-side scripting is probably out of the question: Electron doesn't support AppleScript. Guys, just posting "+1" is very unlikely to get you any closer to having a Teams workflow. There are plenty of people who’ll help if you write the workflow yourself, and others will write you a simple workflow based on an API you've found. But not many will look at a thread of “+1” posts and decide to do literally all of the work for you. Put in a bit of effort yourselves (e.g. go find out if there's an API), and someone who can help is

  48. Hi @AsterY, welcome to the forum. I believe Alfred’s Lock works by simulating the Hotkey for macOS’s “Lock Screen” function, which is ^⌘Q. So what’s probably happening is that QQ has redefined ^⌘Q, which is why it’s activating.
