maltsev Remove white space from Alfred workflow setup file name
Since Github renames this file when creating a release
(Alfred Maestro → Alfred.Maestro), it's better to use the one
without a white space, so we'll have a consistent file name
everywhere (thus possibility to make an error).

Alfred Maestro (Download)

Activate any of your Keyboard Maestro macros in Alfred

This is a workflow for anyone who uses Keyboard Maestro and wishes it had built-in Alfred support. In Alfred simply type km followed by the name of any of your KM macros.

Requirements

Alfred 3 with Powerpack and Keyboard Maestro 6.3 or greater. If you don't have them, go get them immediately. You will not regret it.

Both well worth the cost.

Installation

Download the file directly, then double-click Alfred Maestro.alfredworkflow file to install.

Installing from sources

You can also compile and install this workflow from sources. It's written in Go, so you should install it first.

  1. Clone this repository
  2. Install AwGo library: go get github.com/deanishe/awgo
  3. Run make pack
  4. Double-click Alfred Maestro.alfredworkflow file to install the workflow.

Usage

Type km followed by the name of any of your defined macros.

I also wrote a blog post on how I personally use this workflow for anyone who's interested: Integrating Alfred and Keyboard Maestro

Update:

Thanks to Peter Lewis of Stairways Software, the creator of Keyboard Maestro for adding a feature to KM that greatly increased the power of this workflow. Now Alfred can launch any of your macros, not just the ones with a hotkey!

Possible Issues

Application Specific Macro Groups

Important: If you have macros that you only want to run in certain applications read this.

If you create a macro group that is not set to run in all applications you will need to make sure it is set to run in Alfred in addition to whatever application you want it to run in. See issue 5 for details.
