Alfred workflow that can show and change your network settings: Wi-Fi, Ethernet, VPN, DNS, etc.
This is a collection of the functionalities of already existing network-oriented workflows that I found half-baked or stalled. Improved on performance, usability and details.
wifito show Wi-Fi info and enable/disable.
ethto show ethernet info (if connected).
wifilistto scan for Wi-Fi hotspots.
vpnto list configured VPNs and connect.
dnsto list and change DNS settings.
Requires Alfred 3 and Powerpack for installing this extension. Might behave differently on macOS versions older than 10.7 Lion. This workflow is primarily implemented in Bash with a little help from AppleScript.
