Now and Then (the web) – search bookmarks and web history


Recommended Posts

A simple file filter to search all bookmark (keyword web) and web browsing history (keyword hist) files accessible to Spotlight. 

 

Why use this instead of the default Alfred functionality? Well:

  • More targeted search, less clutter in default results.
  • Smarter search: History search searches the URL, bookmark search ignores it; JavaScript bookmarklets are excluded from bookmarks searches.
  • Searches bookmarks in Pinboard.in / Delicious accounts registered with Delish and Webbla, including tag search (Webbla, needs OpenMeta enabled, Delish works out of the box).

If you’d like the workflow to support more browsers and bookmark / history formats, please attach an example of a pertinent bookmark and / or history file to this issue.

A simple file filter to search all bookmark (keyword web) and web browsing history (keyword hist) files accessible to Spotlight. Currently searches the files generated by Safari and Pinboard.in / Delicious accounts registered with Delish and Webbla. Notes:

  • History search searches the URL, bookmark search ignores it.
  • Tags are searched, but only if the underlying bookmarking schemes maps them to a known, Spotlight retrievable tagging scheme (currently, this is only true of Webbla, which maps service tags to OpenMeta tags).
  • JavaScript bookmarklets are excluded from bookmarks searches.

If you’d like the workflow to support more formats, please attach an example of a pertinent bookmark and / or web history file to this issue.

I made a similar filter a while back just using : as the keyword. Wanted to see bookmarks and history without it junking up the default results.
