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.

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.

Hi, I'm a complete novice to Alfred and can't code. Have been, without success, trying to create a workflow that does following:

 

Typing:

bl 7

 

Would open Bear with 

@last7days

filled into search box, in order to see only notes of the last 7 days.

 

Edit: Found solution: Web search instead of workflow.

Search URL: bear://x-callback-url/search?term=%40last{query}days

Title: Bear last x days

Keyword: bl

solution found

I absolutely love your workflow, thank you very much for posting it.

 

I only have one more need and I hope you can help me, because I am lost in code/at coding. :)

 

The only other thing I am looking for, is to have a shortcut key that opens Bear, opens a new note (not in a new window) and I can type my note.

 

I have been trying to look at the code, I manage to connect the shortcut, but every time the Alfred window opens up first to ask for an input and I cannot stop this (or if I try to, nothing happens.)

 

I guess it's not that complicated, but I have absolutely no clue how to do it. :X 

 

 

Whether you can help me or not, thank you all for your time and all your work here. 

Stay safe.
