Flashlight is an unofficial Spotlight API that allows you to programmatically process queries and add additional results.
Installation (requires System Integrity Protection to be disabled)
- Download and open MacForge
- Install Flashlight
Flashlightand install the plugins you want to use
- Start using Flashlight
Significant changes have been made to Spotlight in Big Sur add that on top of the fact Flashlight was already partly broken in recent releases, around 10.15.5 and beyond, I've decided to discontinue my efforts in this project. There are also not many users 387 on v1.2 according to analytics.
Start with the tutorial on writing plugins.
Once you're finished with a plugin, clone our repo, place your bundle in
PluginDirectories/1, and we'll upload it to the online directory.
We welcome all contributions to the Flashlight core and plugins. See the wiki for more info.
