I find fetching of lyrics to Alfred too slow and would love to just set a hotkey so that if I activate it, it will just open the lyrics in the browser.

Essentially picking the first option here without actually going there and pressing enter :

Good idea, I've added a Setting to choose to display lyrics directly in the default browser:

Try it by installing:

That is lovely. One thing though that stops me from installing new updates is that I set so many custom external triggers that any update I do wipes them away and it's quite painful to get them back. :(

I guess there is no solution to it though and I have to do it.

What kind of external trigger is missing, because I've added a lot in #176 ?

Oh that is awesome. Here is my modified workflow with all the custom triggers (I changed the id so it should not replace current spotify wf you have). You are right, there is a lot of them there and thanks for that.

I am not actually sure which ones I made of my own. Will download the update and compare and tell you. :)

Let me know if there are some missing, it would be a shame to avoid updates just because of that 😄

Finally got a chance to install the update. :)

I have few questions though. This trigger :

2017-07-29 at 20 14

Still does not open lyrics in the browser. Or I am doing something wrong.

If you can add these external triggers, it would be amazing.

  1. Opening Currently song playing

Currently I create external trigger and pass in ✧Current Track▹ to it.

  1. Adding current song playing to my Alfred playlist

In old update, I had this :

2017-07-29 at 21 17

Can't find it anywhere in the new update. :(

Also it would be amazing to add Soundcloud, to web search.

Aside from this, this is amazing update and amazing workflow. If this were added, updating would be seamless for me. 💛

Also another option, to 'view' currently playing playlist would be amazing. So I can see songs that are going to come next and what songs are inside the playlist that is being played right now whether it is radio playlist or my own.

Isn't it the Play Queue feature ?

Does not work. It simply brings me to twitter, youtube home page.

This is because it is not supposed to be used, this is used by workflow for internal stuff. I've added some comments:

It just needs to call AppleScript to get current track, which takes a couple of seconds

Oh yes, it is. There is no external trigger for it though I think. :)

It's coming with Add missing external triggers #195 😄

Out of curiosity, how do you use so many external triggers ? I barely use one just to refresh library automatically..

Karabiner. I have a very very long config for it. Really changes how you use your mac although sadly Karabiner broke on new versions of macOS, still waiting for Karabiner Elements to catch up. :)

In short, every key on my keyboard is a modifier key. So I can configure to hold and press M, then press D and current track on spotify shows up. M + C to show Play Queue and so on.
