I love Dash App with Alfred integration for looking up documentation fast like Sonic.

Toggle hidden files is a useful one.


Nice. I've used devdocs.io, but never really Dash. I'll check it out since it integrates with Alfred. Thanks for sharing!


Spotify Mini-player - Control spotify from Alfred
pwgen - Password generator
uuigden - Generator UUIDs when needed


Nice, thanks for the pointer to Spotify mini player.


I like the Alfred Spotify Mini Player a lot.

Another one I use frequently is Network Location, for switching between, well, network locations. I specifically set up different locations that only differ in DNS configuration, so it's easy to switch between Google, Cloudflare and my PiHole.
