The Alfred Emoji Pack

In the past I tried an Alfred workflow for inserting emoji, which was pretty terrible. When I upgraded my computers to Alfred 4 this weekend, I went on a hunt for a real solution and found The Alfred Emoji Pack, which is great because it uses the built-in snippets feature. After you launch Alfred, type your shortcut for Snippets (s in my case), a colon, and some text. It’ll show you suggestions and when you pick one it will be pasted in to whatever app you’re using at the time.

Where it really becomes powerful is when you turn on Automatically expand snippets by keyword in Alfred.

Set Mac Volume to a Specific Percentage with an Alfred Workflow

The Touch Bar on the MacBook is a pain in the ass. I’ve been getting sick of fighting with it to adjust volume and wanted an alternative to using the icon in the Mac OS menu bar. I already had some AppleScript code I use to reset volume to start my work day, so I ran with it to make a simple Alfred Workflow.

I didn’t realize how awesome this workflow would be. I’m using it all the time, even on my other Mac, which has the keyboard volume control buttons.
