Useful Alfred workflows for web development

alfredapp, os x

Alfred App has a couple of useful workflow for web developers.

Alfred App is one of the things that make working on OS X a pleasure. There are lots of useful workflows out there, and using a folder inside Dropbox as the sync folder (Preferences > Advanced > Syncing.. ) allows me to share them among my work and home machines.

Here are a couple of workflows I find useful for web development.


I can type a color directly into Alfred, say #ff0000 or rgb 1,45,87 and Alfred will show me a list of conversions in other formats, with a swatch in the color itself. Use c name for a CSS color name, say c red.


Quickly convert from HTML or URL encoded text to plain by typing decode <TEXT>, or viceversa with encode <TEXT>.
