Yet another installed workflow search, written in swift


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A workflow that allows you to search for your installed workflows, by their name, all kinds of keywords and hotkeys.

 

It’s written in swift, therefore super fast and doesn’t rely on cache.

 

It also comes with a command line tool `altr` to run any Alfred external trigger in terminal. In addition to Alfred’s AppleScript implementation, it also supports passing variables into the trigger.

 

P.S. I’ve been developing Alfred workflows for quite a while, but mostly for my own, custom needs. This is the first workflow I’m making public. Feel free to try it out and let me know how it works for you! ;)

Fun! It means we’ll have at least two of them in Swift (I also made one I’ve been using locally for some months but haven’t shared yet). It’s interesting to see different approaches and priorities. But yes, the GitHub link is a 404. Maybe the repo is private and you forgot to make it public to share?

Neat! There are a few minor problems with your initial release:

  • You forgot to remove your compiled versions of Workflow.swiftaltr, and Notifier the from the workflow
  • You are not referencing the environment variable keyword in your script filter (should be: {var:keyword})
  • You probably want to remove the 6MB preview gif as it is not even animated in the configuration preview 😄

 

One thing that is important to me is being able to quickly inspect a workflow's cache and data folders.

If you're interested in adding this use case and want some inspiration, you could take a look at the approach I took to add this to Acidham's workflow: #15

Those two can be accessed with `fn-enter` and `ctrl-enter`.
