  1. I have re-implemented ctwise's excellent implementation of the Menu Search workflow in Swift. This version is ever so slightly faster (at least on my machine ) - YMMV. Requires OSX 10.7+ Download Setup Accessibility must be enabled for Alfred in order for this to work properly. For example, in macOS Sierra, this is configured using the Security and Privacy preference pane, under the Privacy tab with the Accessibility section selected. Alfred must be included in the list of apps allowed to control your computer. This step is required for the workflow to generate the list of menu items, and also click on a specific menu item. Here's a snapshot of what the preference pane might look like in macOS Sierra. Usage Type m in Alfred to list menu bar items for front most application You can filter menu items by name, or do a fuzzy search. E.g m new tab will match the menu item New Tab m cw will match the menu item Close Window Settings You can change the workflow environment variables to fine tune menu listings -show-disabled true/false controls if diabled menu items should be shown (default is false) - change this setting if certain items are not displayed, even though active -show-apple-menu true/false if true, menus items under the apple menu will be shown (default is false) -max-children number how many sub-menu items to load for each menu item (default is 30) -max-depth number how many nested levels if sub menus should be listed (default is 10) v1.6 and above You can also have customised settings per app. Typing ms into Alfred will give you a list of options to configure your settings.txt config file. The workflow comes bundled with a sample configuration file for reference. Your app settings will override any workflow level variable settings you may have specified. Here's the settings file I use for reference: # always show disabled menu items appFilters { app: "BibDesk" showDisabledMenuItems: true } # for Safari, ignore the History and Bookmarks # menus since loading it take a lot of time appFilters { app: "Safari" ignoreMenuPaths { path: "History" } ignoreMenuPaths { path: "Bookmarks" } } # For Finder alone, show the Apple menu entries, # and ignore any recent entries listed in the # Apple > Recent Items menu appFilters { app: "Finder" showAppleMenu: true ignoreMenuPaths { path: "Apple" path: "Recent Items" } } Change log 1.0 - Initial Release 1.1 - Added Fuzzy Text Matching for Menus If you have a menu item New Tab, then typing m nt in Alfred will match New Tab, since n and t matches the first letters of the menu text. 1.1.1 - Changed run behaviour to terminate previous script, this makes the experience slightly more faster 1.2 - Completely native menu clicking, removed reliance on AppleScript 1.2.1 - Performance improvements when generating menus using direct JSON encoding 1.2.2 - More performance improvements while filtering menu items 1.3 - Added -async flag to allow threaded scanning and populating of menus 1.4 - Added -cache setting to enable menu result caching and also set a timeout for cache invalidation 1.4.1 - Invalidate cache (if present) after actioning a menu press 1.4.2 - Slide the cache invalidation window forward in case we get invalidated by a near miss 1.4.3 - Speed improvements to caching, text search and fuzzy matching 1.4.4 - Added -no-apple-menu flag that will skip the apple menu items 1.4.5 - Tuned fuzzy matcher, allows non-continuous anchor token search 1.5 - Faster caching using protocol buffers 1.5.1 - Reduced file creation for cache storage 1.5.2 - Better support for command line apps that create menu bar owning applications 1.5.3 - Protocol buffer everything - microscopic speed improvements, but hey... 1.5.4 - Added various environment variables to fine tune menu listings 1.5.5 - Tweaked ranking of search results for better menu listings 1.6 - Per app customization via the `settings.txt` configuration file
  2. Hi, I've created a basic workflow that searches the system's menu bar. After having used Sublime Text's command palette I wanted to have a similar system-wide functionality. EDIT: For people that haven't worked with Sublime Text's command palette: the command palette allows you to fuzzy search the entire application menu by keyboard. This saves both time on hunting down the right menu and saves you having to remember all sorts of keyboard shortcuts. For a brief introduction on Sublime Text's command palette see https://tutsplus.com/lesson/the-command-palette/ EDIT: Better use ctwise's "2.0" workflow http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1993-menu-search/ [old download is still available at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6259900/Menu%20bar%20search.alfredworkflow] The current workflow does not do any fuzzy searching and every keystroke executes the entire script again. My preferred fix to this would be to have a script input that is only executed once, and have Alfred do the subsequent fuzzy matching based on the initial result. Jeroen van der Neut @jvdneut
  3. I'm wondering whether Alfred is capable of task timing and popping up notifications that tell me to move onto the next task or given me the option of extending my time. I want to allot my waking hours to different projects and times I want to spend on them and then be told when the time is over and to move onto the next task. I'd like to keep the name of the task in the menu bar along with a countdown. I've tried so many apps and none of them do what I want them to do. Is Alfred capable of this?

    OS X Menu Bar

    Inspired by previous work, with the font and colours sampled from the menu bar in OS X. Now updated for 10.9, OS X Menu Bar v4 is designed to look like it came part and parcel with OS X Mavericks. Download it here.
  5. At this point, the only thing stopping me from using Alfred full time is the equivalent of the "UI Access" plugin in QuickSilver. The UI access plugin in QS allowed you to search through any menu item available in the current application. You can set up a hotkey using a proxy object (current application) and quickly type in commands that's available in the menu. I use this a lot in Photoshop, and a lot of other application where there are incredible amount of menu items that I don't feel like digging through each and every time. There is a workflow available right now that searches through the menu bar, but the workflow is really slow. I would love to see this feature just baked into Alfred.
