How it works

The workflow scans your system for .sublime-project files using locate, mdfind and (optionally) find. It then caches the list of projects for 10 minutes (by default).

As the locate database isn't enabled on most machines (and isn't updated frequently in any case), and mdfind ignores hidden directories, there is an additional, optional find-based scanner to "fill the gaps", which you must specifically configure (see below).


Scan intervals are configured in the workflow's configuration sheet in Alfred Preferences:

Variable Usage
INTERVAL_FIND How long to cache find search results for
INTERVAL_LOCATE How long to cache locate search results for
INTERVAL_MDFIND How long to cache mdfind search results for

The values should be of the form 10m or 2h. Set to 0 to disable a particular scanner.

The workflow should work "out of the box", but if you have project files in directories that mdfind doesn't see (hidden directories, network shares), you may have to explicitly add some search paths to the sublime.toml configuration file in the workflow's data directory. The file is created on first run, and you can use .stconfig > Edit Config File to open it in Sublime Text.

These directories are searched with find.

You can also add glob patterns to the excludes list in the settings file to ignore certain results. Excludes apply to all scanners.

The options are documented in the settings file itself.

Licensing, thanks

All the code is released under the MIT Licence.

The workflow is based on the AwGo workflow library and docopt, both also released under the MIT Licence.

The icons are based on Font Awesome and Material Design Icons.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
