  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. Alfred GIF Search Download: Gif.Search.alfredworkflow Up-to-date README (this post is outdated) This workflow lets you search GIFs on Tenor from Alfred.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

  4. @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

    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:

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/v1.2 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

    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.

  9. @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,

    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!

  11. 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

    Questions from newbie

    Welcome @bebek. To both the Alfred forums and macOS! For many (most?) of us, Alfred is the first app we install on any Mac and we almost feel useless using macOS without it. It can get that ingrained in your usage. Like every closed-source software, you have to trust its creators. I wholeheartedly trust Alfred’s team (@Andrew and @Vero) and I recommend you stick around to meet them in the forums. You’ll see they care deeply for Alfred’s users and they have everything to gain from being truthful. Plus, they’re nice people in general.

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

    Questions from newbie

    Absolutely. Alfred doesn’t upload any data to its creators or anyone else. In theory, it's potentially risky. In practice, it's just not an issue. Alfred is too small to be an attractive target. But If someone did create a malicious workflow, there are enough paranoid users (like me) running all manner of security software that it would be quickly spotted. If you must worry about something, worry about bugs, not enemy action.

  23. Hello! Ever wanted to quickly convert currencies within your Alfred Window but all existing workflows lack this one or that one feature and the exotic currency you need for your next post-pandemic holiday trip is missing? That’s why we have created the Ultimate Currency Converter – first just for ourselves, but it might also be helpful for you. Get it from here: Ultimate Currency Converter – GitHub Release Page For usage information: just play around with the currency keyword or look at the README. In case you have any bug

  24. Alfred internally has a URL scheme to open the preferences to certain pages, sometimes used by the ? keyword. I'm reluctant to make this a public accessible feature as this makes it significantly more tricky to make changes in the future for something which won't be used much. Having said that, in my wider plan, I do have some ideas written down to make a configurable user-facing "preferences" per workflow which would show when installing a workflow.

  25. Welcome to the forums, I have toned down the original title, as both it and the top of your post punch down on other Workflow developers who also worked hard on their converters. The Alfred forums aim to foster a respectful community where we try to support each other and have everyone’s Workflows be better. The “best” workflows are subjective. The power of Alfred lies in everyone being able to decide on their own tradeoffs. By requiring users get an API key, your Workflow is already disqualified for plenty of people. While it’s fine to ask for donations, that

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. @peegeebee If by workflow, you're referring to the default web search for Google Translate, the URL structure was changed by Google a couple of days ago. If you update to the Alfred 4.3.2 pre-release (by going to the Update tab, choosing "pre-releases" from the dropdown menu at the bottom and updating), you'll see that this URL has already been updated to reflect Google's change Cheers, Vero

  31. @troycurtisjr With help from someone on reddit, I was able to cobble together code that tests for Do Not Disturb status on Big Sur. The plist file ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.ncprefs contains a plist item dnd_prefs. That item contains a base64-encoded binary plist (bplist). When that is decoded, if DND is enabled, it would look something like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>dndDisplayLock</key>

  36. 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.

  40. 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. @Marco Zehe Thanks for your report, I reproduced the workflows list not announcing the names correctly and have made a quick fix for the next build. Accessibility is an important part of all software, and as a small team of 2, we try to keep the most used parts of Alfred up to date with voice over as Alfred's features quickly evolve. I admit that certain areas of accessibility within the preferences app aren't perfect, but this is something we try to address as they are highlighted to us. The workflow editor itself needs a fundamental visualisation overhaul to be better
