More Alfred/Screen Sharing fun


Following the last post, I’ll comment that I use Screen Sharing very regularly. Each time I open it in macOS 10.13, I need to start typing before it auto-completes my last session. To save a few seconds, I wrote a quick Alfred workflow that scans my recent Screen Sharing profile history (located in a user Library folder) and pattern matches as I type.

Now I can just open Alfred, type “screen + <space> + <keyword>” and it’ll bring up matching profiles and I can connect directly. Since Screen Sharing uses VNC fallback, I can also use this to quickly connect to my Raspberry Pi, the wife’s laptop, or anything else I might need.
