Show Finder's Color Labels in Search

Recommended Posts

This is EXACTLY what I was hoping for / imagined for OS Mavericks. Being able to search by label in Alfred would be IDEAL!!!

 

You can search for Mavericks tags already by using a File Filter > Advanced and choosing the kMDItemUserTags metadata field to your filter.

I'd guess one could periodically read the labels and associated colors, and since I believe the label is part of the metadata for a file, maybe it possible to add without affecting performance.

Perhaps there hasn't been much consideration. Labels/tags are possibly going to be more important and utilized; see how they occupy a primary place in Files for iOS. If they were displayed in Alfred, a bit like Gmail for iOS, right aligned in a colored box with label name on the same line as the file path, I don't think that'd be too intrusive.
