How can I use Alfred to choose a random selection from a large group of files? in Workflow Help & Questions Posted May 15, 2018 Hey sr_navarre, Sorry for my late reply. Just came across your post on /r/Alfred. Unfortunately, the API I use right now – i. e. the command-line tools mdls and mdfind – are not really designed for this task. I tried a few ideas to add (at least limited) support for subfolders but got nowhere with that. Maybe someone more familiar with the Metadata API than me has an idea as to how to implement this quickly? I’ll happily accept pull requests to the alfred-random_file_picker repo.
