An Alfred Workflow for Codebox

June 25, 2015   

Codebox is a great program for storing and accessing snippets. It offers a quickbar menu item, but I thought Alfred might offer more functionality. So I wrote a workflow for it.

The workflow works fairly well, but there are a few caveats. You should not do the following with your codebox libraries:

  • Don’t put spaces into tag, list, or folder names. Use an underscore instead.
  • Don’t nest folders/lists with the same name.


Set the codebox source using cb_src

set source

Invoke the workflow by typing ff

search directory

Browse tags with ff #<search>
search tags

Search all Snippets: ff <search>

search all
