Filtering files and folders in a hidden folder.

Recommended Posts



I just installed ohmyzsh (https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh  A collection of themes and plugins to supercharge zsh. Basically, these are jst .zsh and .md files) and wanted to browse through its files and folders. All these these and plugins are installed in a folder located at ~/.oh-my-zsh


I created a workflow with a file filter action but couldn't make it work. I guess it is because its files and folders are located in one hidden folder.


The workflow works when the folder is renamed ~/oh-my-zsh.

This. Spotlight doesn't index hidden folders, so Alfred doesn't see them either.


oh-my-zsh doesn't overly care where it's installed, so if you must search it, install it in a non-hidden directory.

For anyone willing to try it. Rename the ".oh-my-zsh" folder to  "oh-my-zsh" in your oh-my-zsh settings (~/.zshrc).



# Path to your oh-my-zsh installation.
export ZSH=/Users/Your_Username/oh-my-zsh


Will post any update, if things go wrong.
