My Alfred workflows

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 2 minute read

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

Naming things is a fantastic workflow by my colleague Sebastian De Deyne to quickly search synonyms on thesaurus.com. Read more about it in this blog post by Seb.

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.

I found the workflow on this forum post, and you can download the workflow directly by clicking here.

Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.

May I suggest this one? Toggles between macOS Dark & Light modes, as well as a matching Alfred theme, with the command "theme": github.com/AlexMartinFR/m… (I'll give this "Naming things" workflow a try, I have a feeling I could benefit from it!)
