adding to list filters via Alfred

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

Apologies if this has been discussed already... I use list filters a lot, and I would really like a way to add items to a list filter directly via Alfred, ie: if I enter an item that is not in the list, Alfred will add the new item to the list itself. 

Is there a way to do that?

I would be ok with 1) using the same string for title, subtitle, and arg; and 2) going in the filter and correcting the inevitable items being added because of typos or mistakes.

thanks, this is what I had in mind! 

Does it update the json file only when the list.csv file is edited, or all the time? If the latter, will it be slower than a normal list filter if you have a long list.csv file? 

thanks for getting back to me!

It only does the conversion if the json file doesn’t exist or if the modification date of the csv is newer. The files I use it with only have 80-100 entries but I haven’t noticed any performance issues when I have changed the csv.
