Alfred5: Show when Alfred has accessibility granted


Recommended Posts

5.0.2057

 

I had an issue where pasting items from Clipboard History wasn't working, even though I had granted Accessibility permissions to Alfred 5 and rebooted several times. I had to go into SysPrefs, remove Alfred and then re-add him to get it working.

 

This is likely a macOS bug, but it would be nice if Alfred checked his own permissions upon launch and notified the user if they're not correctly set. Hammerspoon as an example handles this nicely, providing a "green dot" when all is good:

The issue here is that when it's not working (i.e. on the rare occasion when you have to remove and re-add accessibility to get it working), then macOS would be reporting it working to Alfred, so you'd see a green anyway.

 

I will keep this in mind though.
