TextExpander to Alfred 3
You can, of course, still use the CLI tool, both will give the same result. But the web version will be much quicker, easier and better suited for people unfamiliar with Node.
With TextExpander changing its business model, the new Alfred version supporting text replacement, and the general wish to use the smallest number of different apps, I wrote this script to convert the
.textexpander files to
TextExpander uses a
plist with all the entries in an array, and Alfred uses a ZIP file containing a JSON file for each snippet.
I recommend you to do
npm install -g textexpander-to-alfred3
But you can, of course, do whatever you want.
First, you'll have to export your TextExpander snippets. To do that, just right click on a snippet folder and select
Save a Copy of Group.
Then, you just have to run the program with the
.textexpander file as the only argument. It will then put a
.alfredsnippets file in your current working directory. Open that file with Alfred to load the snippets.

You can also use
te2a3 instead with the same result:
te2a3 Signatures.textexpander > Wrote file /Users/You/Signatures.alfredsnippets
