This time I wanted to get a bit more familiar with (zsh flavored) shell scripting.

The result is Favorites, the spiritual successor of Faves, which was last maintained by @Tyler Eich if I'm not mistaken.

Notwithstanding the fact that the successor still works well, this workflow is written 100% in shell and does not require Python 2.7 to be installed.


I did some testing, but there might still be some bugs hiding. If you catch them, please bring them here 😄

Add files and folders to your list of favorites by using the workflow’s Universal Action.

Quickly find them again by activating the workflow with the Keyword (default: fav) or by setting a hotkey of your choice.
