search notes app

Use Alfred to find and open notes in iCloud/Apple Notes.

From this project's GitHub repository:

Search Notes.app with Alfred

Usage

Type n[part of note] and press enter.

Install

Download the Alfred workflow file from Releases and open it.

Customize

Search

By default, this searches the title + full text of the notes and orders results based on the last modification date of the note. If you want to search titles only or order results alphabetically, change the environment variables.

Icons

Icons are from Emojitwo and will show up when they are the first character in the name of a folder, like 📘 GPI in the screenshot above. Add your own icons to the workflow’s icons folder and tweak searchNotes.py to see them in Alfred.

Compatibility

The default search method is only tested in High Sierra. If it’s not working for you and/or you’re on a different version of macOS, try the AppleScript search methods using the keywords a and b.
