I love Alfred but I struggled at first to troubleshoot my workflow scripts due to difficulty finding a way to debug. I've seen posts mentioning writing logs to an external file but that seemed hack-y, especially since Alfred includes a debug console. If you'd like to use the console to debug your scripts, I found the following very useful. It would be great if there were a mention of this in the docs: To show script output in the debug console, print (or echo or put, etc) the output to stderr instead of stdout. In a Bash script: >&2 echo "Log this output to the console" In a Python script: import sys sys.stderr.write("Log this to the console") For other languages, look for an equivalent method that allows you to log to stderr.
