Script filters are not included in Alfred's knowledge [Fixed 2.0.3 b184]

Tyler Eich

Recommended Posts

  • Script Filter: 'Foo'
  • Keyword: 'foo'
  • Returnable items: 'Bar 1', 'Bar 2', 'Bar 3'

Typed 'f' into Alfred, navigated to 'Foo', hit return (auto-completed input to 'foo'). Results. Action 'Bar 1'.


Typed 'foo' into Alfred, results; action 'Bar 1'.


Expected behavior: Alfred learns that 'Foo' is a preferred script filter, puts 'Foo' higher when 'f' is typed.

Actual behavior: Alfred does not place 'Foo' higher when 'f' is typed.


Note: results from script filters are learned, but the parent script filter is not


Alfred v2.0.2 (178) on OS X 10.8.3. Replicated: yes

This is because a parent item is never actually actioned, and as such, never makes its way to the knowledge.


I've moved this to noted as it's something which could be thought about in the future, but would need some pretty significant rethinking.

WOW that was fast! Just 30 minutes ago you said you were thinking about it :)


Alfred 2.0.3 b184 is now in pre-release from the in-app auto-updater, including improvements for this, so please update to test :)
