Mojave Alfred Accented Themes

Collection of Dark & Light Accented Alfred Themes tailored with care for macOS Mojave & Alfred Powerpack users.
You can have any color! Well, as long as it’s not Black 🎩

Releases

  • 1.2.0 : New theme install command to easily download the 16 themes at once. July 2019
  • 1.1.1 : Alfred 4 compatibility. June 2019
  • 1.0.0 : Initial release. October 2018

Installation

Download the latest workflow, then use the theme install command to grab the 16 themes at once!
I personnaly rock the Light Purple one most of the time, and disabled the Hat Logo in Alfred’s Preferences.

If you want to clean your Alfred themes folder, here are some terminal shortcuts to open the most common Alfred preferences’ locations:

  • open ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences/themes
  • open ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Alfred.alfredpreferences/themes
  • open ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Alfred.alfredpreferences/themes

Theme Switcher

The workflow designed for this theme collection allows you to select your Alfred’s theme accent color and switch between Dark & Light modes. Here are the main commands :

  • theme : toggles between Dark & Light Themes on both macOS and Alfred.
  • theme color : toggles between the accent color of your choice variant of this set of themes (replace color with either Blue, Purple, Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Gray).

Mojave Theme Switcher Workflow

Known limitations

  • To preserve your actual accent color when toggling between Dark and Light modes, I use the themes’ background color as an identifier for a specific accent. Which means if you modify the colors of the themes, or try to adapt it for another set of themes, you’ll have to adapt the “accentColorLookup” table.
  • There is currently no macOS API that I know of which features a way to change the system UI’s accent color. When Apple adds it, I’ll add the feature to toggle everything from this workflow at once, which will make it a breeze to swap colors system wide in one command!
