  1. Can checkout https://github.com/lilyball/alfred-rs and https://github.com/spamwax/alfred-workflow before writing a new alfred library in Rust.
  2. Was fun seeing my workflow as example. This is nothing though, here is me using https://github.com/lox/alfred-github-jump to search my 21,300 GitHub stars. Can't even see it. Although personally I don't find it an issue. I use the scroll bar size as indicator of how many results are being returned so current behavior is perfect for me in achieving this.
  3. So waiting a month with it broken was worth it. macOS fixed it on its own 🎊
  4. Personally I think it looks fine in both modes as light icon. Also this is a view that a user might see once in a year/lifetime.
  5. I tried both open & mdls: And it didn't work. Alfred troubleshooting thing always works all the time. Not sure what you mean with touch command, I guess `cat` contact content to clipboard. Then create a new .abcdp file with the clipped content. I have a feeling that maybe it's Alfred checking whether the contact is in default search scope may do something too. Thanks for the help @Andrew. Just wanted to note this in case someone else has similar issues and finds this thread as those solutions didn't work for me.
  6. Would it be possible to open source Alfred Metadata Tool? I am very curious to know what actually causes the act of inspecting a contact to be indexed properly by Alfred. So I can perhaps write a script to run it on all the 800+ contacts so all are indexed. I know this is a hacky approach but I don't have time to reinstall macOS from scratch (will do it when I get M2 mac machine). If it's not possible, I guess I can live with it until then. Thanks.
  7. I tried to select all contacts (I have 856) and drop them all at once into the Metadata Tool but it unsurprisingly only opens one contact so it didn't work. Don't want to go through the process of doing the above for each one of the 856 contacts so any solution to this would be very welcome.
  8. I see, thank you @Andrew Going to drop the only thing that worked for me so far, maybe it might give an idea of what's going on. Every time I drop a contact from here (where all contact metadata is kept): Into the Alfred Meta Viewer to inspect the contact. After that the contact starts to be found again. Example, not found: After inspecting contact with Alfred Metadata Tool and waiting ~ 5 seconds, the contact will be found and indexed correctly: Makes me thing this is some permission thing between Alfred an
  9. This line I had to add manually by inspecting file with the Viewer then copying it from it from there. I'd expect Alfred to fill in this line for me when I dropped `karabiner.md` file into this table view but nothing happened for me. That's why I assumed the file type was either `com.unknown.md` or `net.daring` but it was neither.
  10. Only one contact is being formatted correctly. Perhaps because I inspected it? Also despite showing system files, not all contacts are being found again. Previously that option fixed my issue of Alfred not returning all contacts.
  11. Okay I might be the unluckiest person or macOS hates me as I always get weird file system issues but indeed the file types of those files are not markdown but `dyn.ah62d4rv4ge8043a` as the metadata viewer showed: Might be something to look into though as when I did drop this file into here: The `dyn..` stuff wasn't added. I'd consider that a bug as the metadata viewer did recognize the file type as `dyn..`. This doesn't solve the contacts search issue though. Not sure what even went wrong there. File type seems ok:
  12. Get this when trying to search contacts: I reset Spotlight index and had it finish doing the indexing. Not sure what else I need to do. My situation is that my macOS got broken on latest Big Sur update. Had to restore from backup. And now I get this. Might be included to this but my file filter searches are also broke now. This file in ~/Dropbox/Write/knowledge: Is no longer being found using my file filter workflow that searches this folder for markdown files: I no longer hav
  13. Very appreciate that you still interact with me and try to help @deanishe. ♥️
