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






sometimes my domain changes.. ie to







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.
