Originally I wanted this to be a fork of Bill Clark's Laravel Nova Documentation Search Workflow for Alfred which has a major issue that inhibits a user from opening a web browser window once they press . And because I worked a lot with Laravel Nova recently I figured it would be nice to still have a working Alfred workflow for Laravel Nova's docs. But since Bill's original Alfred workflow was written in PHP and I wrote mine in Python a pull request would not have made much sense.

Recently macOS 12.3 removed Python 2, so I decided to bite the bullet and re-write the workflow in Dart. That way I can simply compile it into an executable which has no other dependencies.

The lightning fast search is powered by Algolia using the same index as the official Laravel Nova Docs website.
