Find symlinked applications

Alfred does not currently find applications that are symlinked into the Applications folder. Please make it do that. Building applications with Homebrew will create  such symlinks.

 

 

If you just add /usr/local/Cellar/ to Alfred's search path, then this is recursive.
 
Alfred doesn't support public.symlink as OS X's metadata server has very limited support for this, making searches very inefficient. If Alfred ever takes on the job of indexing himself, then we'll take into account symlinks.

Of course. Adding the Homebrew folder is fine. Thanks
