Alfred GIF Search

Search for GIFs and animated stickers on Tenor and Giphy from Alfred.

Here's an example of searching and inserting a GIF in a google doc:

Animated stickers are also GIFs, but they typically tend to have a transparent background. Here's an example of how animated stickers look like:


  1. Download the latest release.
  2. In Alfred, run .setup-gif-search.

    • giphy: search Giphy for GIFs
    • sticker: search Tenor for stickers
    • gsticker: search Giphy for stickers
  • Press .
  • Use arrow keys or mouse to browse the GIFs.
  • To copy the selected GIF to clipboard:
    • either ⌘↩
    • or ⌘-click
  • To copy the URL of selected GIF to clipboard:
    • either ⌥↩
    • or ⌥-click
  • To drop the GIF into apps that support it:
    • drag from Alfred and drop into that app


Firefox and Chrome don't support pasting GIFs from clipboard. That is, if you copy a GIF to clipboard and paste it, it shows up as a static image, not an animated GIF. This is not a bug in this workflow, but rather just the way these browsers have decided to handle GIFs.

Both Chrome and Firefox support drag-n-drop. If you use either of these browsers, sorry, you gotta use the mouse!
