Alfred is a fantastic tool for macOS that allows you to be more productive. The app allows you to install workflows to make it more powerful. In this short blog post, I'd like to share the workflows that I have installed.
Open a PhpStorm project #
The alfred-jetbrains workflow allows you to quickly open projects in JetBrains products. To open a project in PhpStorm, type "phpstorm" and select the project you wish to open from the list.
Laravel docs #
The laravel docs workflow by Till Krüss can save you a lot of time. Just type "ld," followed by a query to search the laravel docs.
PHP Docs #
Bill Clark made a workflow to search the PHP docs.
Open a TablePlus database #
I use TablePlus to administer databases. To quickly open up a database the TablePlus workflow by Chris Renga can be used.
Naming things #
Quit others #
I often work on the road. To save battery, I usually quit all applications except the one that is on the foreground. Instead of closing each app manually, you can use the "quit others" workflow by Lu Nelson.
Trash downloads #
After a while, the downloads folder will contain a lot of files. I have a workflow to immediately move the entire contents of the download folder to trash.
