Bear Alfred Workflow

Alfred workflow to search and create notes in Bear. View it on Packal, or join in the discussion on the Alfred forums.

Install

To install, download a released alfred-bear workflow and double-click to open in Alfred. Easy-peasy.

Searching and opening results

bs — Search for a note by title/content and open it in Bear.

bst — Search for a tag (a group of notes) by tag title and open it in Bear.

Creating a new note

bn I love notes! — Creates a new note with the title and text “I love notes!

bn I love notes! #love #notes — Creates a new note with the title and text “I love notes!” and the tags “#love” and “#notes

Known Issues

  • Creating tags only works with single-word tags – multiword tags hopefully to come.

Todo

  • Append text to existing notes.
  • Figure out multi-word tags.

Thanks
