how AppleScript interfaces with Alfred?

Hello :) 

 

Today I used some AppleScript to interface back into Alfred. I've built a hotkey workflow to quickly launch the "Browse Previous Path" feature:

on alfred_script(q)
  tell application "Alfred" to search "Previous"
end alfred_script

 

I have a feeling the Key Combo output is not required, and that I could tell Alfred to action the search via the AppleScript. But I don't really understand how AppleScript interfaces with Alfred…

 

Basically, where can I find out what can be done to Alfred via AppleScript? All my search results are mostly about what Alfred does for AppleScript, rather than what AppleScript does for Alfred. 

 

If anyone could give me a little primer about how this works? or nudge me in the right direction?
