Find the icon of an Application for an item

Recommended Posts



for my Airfoil Workflow (http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1991-airfoil-speaker-source-selection/) I'm looking for a way to use the icon of an application as icon for my "Source Selection"-item. I just have the name of the application as string.


Anyone with an idea how to do that?


Thanks in advance,




Well, if the workflow was modified, you could make it say.. "if the source is Airfoil, make the result show the file icon for Airfoil". You can do this by modifying the output xml to be:

<icon type="fileicon">/Applications/Airfoil.app</icon>


or whatever you path is. That will tell it to show the icon of that app.
