Alfred is such a great tool if you use a Mac.

I mention some that I use here

I also have a few I wrote a while back for those interested.

Spotify Mini-player - Control spotify from Alfred

Nice, thanks for the pointer to Spotify mini player.


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!


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.

Oh my poor English.

A Google Translate workflow is essential to me.


Definitely Alfred Reminders to create and schedule reminders 👌


I didn't even know about alfred until now.
Been years since I've seen such tooling.


I use this IP Address workflow a lot. It shows your local and external IP.
