Menu Search

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming you have a crap-load of bookmarks in Chrome. Safari has a similar problem but it's much, much worse. For Safari I intentionally ignore the bookmarks menu because it's extremely slow. Chrome didn't exhibit the same behavior with the same number of bookmarks as Safari. I'm guessing it gets a lot slower as the number of bookmarks increases.

 

You're absolutely right - I had a exactly a crap-load of really old bookmarks in multiple nested folders I had entirely forgotten about - imports from other browsers and weird things like that. Works neatly now. Thanks for everything!

This workflow stopped working for me after updating to Alfred 3, is it possible to have some fix for it? This is what I get for any search I make :

It still works with Alfred 3. It's likely you haven't enabled Accessibility for Alfred 3.

@ctwise Thanks for you great work! 

 

Would it be somehow possible to include searching the menu bar icon menus (the right part of the menu bar) ? Could be a nice expansion feature for this workflow.

I have seen a few workflows using apple script to do this, but they are all kind of slow and break because of simulating the UI interaction.

One key benefit I see would be: Stable connection management of bluetooth devices (again only some apple script solutions that do not really work that great).

I can confirm that menu-bar-search still works for alfred 3 on MacOS 10.12 Sierra. For those who may not know how to enable Accessibility for Alfred 3 in MacOS 10.12, go to 

Preferences > Security & Privacy > Accessibility.  Then click the lock and enter your administrator password and use the '+' button to add Alfred 3 to the list.

 

Thank you ctwise for making this wonderful workflow.

Hi guys.

 

I've created a new version of this workflow with some improvements.

 

* Instead of a keyword I'm using a hotkey to trigger the workflow. I prefer CMD+SHIFT+SPACE but this is configurable.

* Instead of filtering in ruby I'm using Alfred's Script Filter.

* I've upgraded menudump to support Alfred's Script Filter JSON Format (https://github.com/ascandroli/menudump)

* I'm using the new "match" field to match against parent menus too. (requires Alfred 3.5)

 

Using Alfred's Script Filter JSON Format makes this workflow very fast.

 

Please take a look and let me know what you think: https://github.com/ascandroli/menudump/releases/download/1.8.0/Menu.Bar.Search-v1_8.alfredworkflow

 

Cheers.

Alejandro.

This is really awesome. I've been using KeyClue before but this is a bit faster. Thank you for sharing it.

Menu Bar Search by Benzi Ahamed seems even faster to me.

 

Hard for me to tell (lots of bookmarks in Chrome and both display results immediately); but this version does fuzzy search which is great!!!

ohhhh I probably wouldn't have done this new version if I knew about Benzi Ahamed's swift implementation. It's fast indeed.

I think the sweet spot would be to have a swift version of the menu scrapper but let the Alfred's Script Filter do the filtering.
