– we create awesome web applications

A while back Vitaly wrote a post about LaunchBar. One of the feedbacks we got was to try out Alfred.

After checking it out we switched.

Alfred is an app launcher and then some for OSX. In the version 2 released not that long ago they added brilliant feature - possibility to create your own workflows using nice and simple UI and share them with everyone.

The one workflow I find particularly useful is the Alfred Github Workflow.

The instructions to download and install are provided at the Github page linked above. Once installed you will be asked for your github credentials. The password is not stored, instead the they store your github session cookie.

It's activated with gh command and you get the list of your repos. Looks like that:

Github workflow

Once you choose one of the repositories you get a list possible actions:

Github workflow repository commands

And that about it. Basically, together with Alfred's fuzzy filtering and always being a keystroke away, it gives me a fast and convenient way to access any of my github repositories.
