I haven't been able to find any info on this but still hopeful: is there a way to change Alfred themes via a terminal command?


You can set the theme via AppleScript. I wrote a workflow for myself some time ago for that.

To do it via a shell script, you can do something like this:


readonly your_literal_theme_name="$1"
cat <<EOF | osascript
	tell application id "com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred"
		set theThemeName to "$your_literal_theme_name"
 		set theme theThemeName
	end tell


The argument is the name of your theme.
