Control Notification Center and Growl.app from Alfred.app

July 27, 2016

An Alfred v2 workflow to control Growl.app and Mountain Lion’s Notification Center.
You’ll need version +1.3 of Growl.

You can use the following keywords:

Show the current status of Growl and NotificationCenter : stat
Pause Growl and Notification Center : pause
Resume Growl and Notification Center : resume
Pause or resume Growl : growl
Pause or resume Notification Center : notificationcenter
Close all Growl notifications : close_growl
Close all NotificationCenter notifications : close_nc
Show Growl’s rollup : show
Hide Growl’s rollup : hide
Enable Growl’s incoming network : enable
Disable Growl’s incoming network : disable/
Restart Growl : restart

Just download this extension, install it and it’s ready to use.

If you don’t have Growl installed, you can just download the NotificationCenter only version of the workflow.

Download!

This extension is written in AppleScript and uses the Shell.
