Alfred 3.4 was just released and the snippets functionality is improved enough that I can retire TextExpander from daily use. There are still a handful of snippet features that TextExpander does better than Alfred, but when I looked through the snippets I used, I was more than covered with Alfred’s functionality. Alfred also seemed to handle the replacements faster than TextExpander did.
While I’m transitioning between roles, I’m spending a little bit of time paying attention to how I use my computer, where things can be optimized, what I need/don’t need. Moving to Jekyll was one of those things. I’m now looking at the various workflows I can simplify with Alfred.
If you don’t use Alfred, it’s worth picking it up.
