[PYTHON FIX] How to fix Python workflows hanging Alfred on Sierra

Recommended Posts

There is a bug in my (unofficial) Alfred-Workflow library that causes very many workflows using it to hang quite dramatically on Sierra.


If you are affected (i.e. you see Alfred's CPU usage spike to 100%), Activity Monitor will show two Python processes like this (choose View > All Processes, Hierarchically), with the bottom one at ~99% CPU (this screenshot is actually of a non-misbehaving workflow):




Download and run this workflow, which will update any old versions of Alfred-Workflow in your installed workflows.


That should get your workflows working again until the workflow developers can push official fixes.

Replace IPB with an image service that works

Updated to install Alfred-Workflow 1.27. Note: This version requires Alfred 3.4.1. If you're using an earlier version of Alfred 3, it might break workflows rather than fix them.
