Today, we released Alfred 4.6.5, which primarily brings an updated integration for 1Password 8.
In 1Password 8, Agile Bits have changed the way third-party apps interact with your data. To support this, we've released an official workflow to be used alongside 1Password 8.
Why are we moving to a workflow?
With 1Password 8, Agile Bits has moved from a native macOS app to a universal cross-platform app. As part of this, the third-party integration feature previously used by Alfred has been replaced with a new 1Password command line tool.
We took this as an opportunity to rethink how to best integrate with 1Password moving forward; Using their official CLI tools, we are now able to offer a deeper direct integration with your 1Password data, which perfectly suits Alfred's extensive workflow toolset.
We have made this process as smooth as possible through this workflow, so that you can get up and running in mere moments.
This also allows us to offer updates to support 1Password changes much more efficiently, without relying on the Alfred release cycle itself.
Keen to get started?
Install 1Password 8, and install the 1Password integration workflow from Github. Type
1p and choose the option to sign it and set up your account.
If you're using 1Password 7 or older, there are no changes for you and you can carry on using the existing built-in integration.
