So excited for the new release of Alfred! The new Workflow editor looks like it'll make programming your Mac to do your bidding so much better! There's also new snippet expansion, multimedia clipboard, better theming and more.

@chrismessina Awesome ! New Clipboard history is great too !
@chrismessina This looks really awesome!
@chrismessina Yeah, I've been using the beta and, sadly (for them), I think it might replace TextExpander
@chrismessina Alfred3 = Zapier for your Mac!
@blendahtom perfect description!
Love this use case (cc @ow):

@rrhoover not taking away from Alfred, but if you use OS X's built-in text replace, it carries over to your other devices. I add a / then whatever. So I can ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and ﴾͡๏̯͡๏﴿ all over the place

@singer @rrhoover OS X's shortcuts only work in native (safari, mail etc...) apps.
@ndyno @rrhoover I use them everywhere, from Facebook to Tweetbot to Snapchat to Day One to even Clash of Clans. The only app I use across desktop+mobile that blocks them is Slack, and since I start many of my own replacements with / I have a double-whammy against me there. Edit: I should add that Chrome is one of the apps that doesn't play friendly with it, and Slack (desktop) is a wrapper of Electron which is based on Chromium, afaik.
@singer @ndyno @rrhoover text replacement is working on slack desktop app, you should enable this, not avaiable in chrome though.
@singer OSX has built in text replacement? Can't believe I didn't know.
One of the best reasons to use a Mac
