New Bear Alfred Workflow

Recommended Posts

I've created a new Bear Alfred workflow here:
https://github.com/drgrib/alfred-bear


It is faster compared to the current Bear Alfred workflow because it is written in Go instead of Python and has optimized SQL queries. It also adds tag searching and autocompletion, link pasting, and clipboard content to note on creation. I do appreciate the author of the original Bear Alfred workflow because I started mine from his design.

This is a very neat idea! Unfortunately when I try to search anything using the 'bs' shortcut I get a Mac OS popup telling me that "search" is from an unidentified developer and that I can movie it to trash ;) the search does not complete. I wonder If you can circumnavigate this problem, it would be awesome to have a Bear autocompletion in the search.

This is great. But when I open a new note, it opens in a window sized to my entire screen. Is there a way to open it within the existing editor window, or at least in a window that size? Bear's default behavior when I open a note in a new window is one the same size as the editor.

@drgrib I just downloaded it. I like it. I especially like bcs. Reminds me of Notational Velocity which I will always have a soft spot for in my heart.

Hi, Everytrhign works great, and autocomplete for Tag search is awesome (I have a large number of 'people' tags to keep track of)

 

i experienced a few missing searches for Tags which have spaces: 

  • Returns results               = BS #Area/Application
  • Does not return results = BS #Area/Test Name

I tried wrapping tags with #, but still no change. 

 

If i go in and edit tag to be 'Test_Name'. (BS #/area/Test_Name) then the results show. 

 

Perhaps, I shouldn't be using spaces in my tag names, but it does make it easier to read sometimes.
