How to mass change alfred custom searches


Recommended Posts

I'm a heavy user of the custom search of alfred.. however many of my custom searches are based on the same domain ie

domain.com/custom_search_1

domain.com/custom_search_2

..

domain.com/custom_search_n

 

sometimes my domain changes.. ie to

 

another_domain.com/custom_search_1

another_domain/custom_search_2

..

another_domain/custom_search_n

 

but everything else stays intact.. can i possibly mass change them on alfred? (i've tried something like this before with chrome with mixed results, see http://superuser.com/questions/1131603/how-to-mass-change-chrome-custom-search-engines/1133530#1133530). 

 

with google chrome the search engines are stores in a .sqlite file, which I can simply change by using sql queries.. i'm hoping alfred stores their custom searches in a database file or something i can edit externally.

Hi @abbood,

 

Alfred stores thes in a plain text plist in Alfred.alfredpreferences/preferences/features/websearch/info.plist so should be pretty easy to batch edit / change... but if you are doing lots of custom searches with the same / changing domain, it might be worth creating a workflow instead and using a variables for the domains.

 

Cheers,

Andrew
