Search for markdown files

Recommended Posts

This workflow requires Alfred 5.5 (or later). It makes use of both the new Grid View and the new Image View in Alfred 5.5.  As the workflow is based on Alfred 5.5 beta there may be changes to the workflow during the beta phase of Alfred 5.5 following changes made in the beta.

The workflow searches for markdown files in a folder within Alfred's default search scope. You select the folder and the workflow displays thumbnails of the markdown files from that folder in a grid. You can then view within Alfred's Text View a selected markdown file and page through that file. In essence the use is almost exactly the same as that for the Search for JPEGs workflow—with one significant difference. When viewing the thumbnail of a single markdown file in Alfred's new Text View (i.e., after selecting it in Grid View) you can press fn↓ and fn↑ to move through the pages of the file. Of course, when highlighting a markdown file in Grid View or viewing it in Text View you can open it with your default markdown viewer using ⌘O (“O” for “open”)—and also by using in Text View. There are full instructions in the workflow ReadMe.

This workflow has no dependencies.
