Fuzzy Search to include Levenshtein Distance

Recommended Posts

If one were to search say "pgotoshop" even with fuzzy search on alfred can't find 'Photoshop' could there be a setting added as fallback to fuzzy search where it will find applications within 1-3 levenshtein steps distance from the search query?

This would be handy, but I think it's unlikely.

 

As Alfred uses OS X's built-in search index, and that doesn't use Levenshtein distances, Alfred would have to keep its own index purely for that purpose.

 

That's not super-complicated to do, but on the other hand it's not super-complicated to do, so a workflow that does it would be trivial to knock up.
