Thanks for your work, your library has been very helpful to me so far. Can I suggest moving workflow settings from alfred_workflow_data to alfred_preferences instead? This way, the workflow settings would sync in the cloud with alfredpreferences.

It can't really be done for implementation reasons (the library stores machine-specific data in the settings file). It would also break the API, which is a no-go. Finally, it's not clear that syncing the data are better than not syncing them. In some cases, sure. But not in all.

 

It's likely that I'll add a separate API for writing to a folder within the prefs bundle at some point in the future.

V2 will be a Python 3-only rewrite. The question is when I'll get round to writing it. Motivation is currently zero.

 

I'm one of the many people who looked at the catastrophic Py2 to Py3 transition and moved to Go instead. I still use Python, but rarely for workflows: Go is just so much better-suited to Alfred workflows (and a lot of other stuff I would have normally used Py2 for).

 

I also don't have Catalina (the only version of macOS with Python 3), and don't see myself installing it any time soon. I'm planning to buy a new Mac, but when I do, I'll be installing Mavericks on it.

 

I will try to do it sometime this year, but that's literally my time horizon: "sometime this year". And I make no promises on that. Py3 is, in my eyes, largely stupid.
