Every time I want to get into flow mode, I feel like I need music to get going. Especially when processing Obsidian notes, which requires a clear mind to place things and occasionally jump into a deep writing exercise.


Create a Alfred workflow that does the following:

  1. Open Obsidian up to the BHOV Inbox note (/Computed/To Process)
  2. Use Alfred Spotify Mini to play a random song or a playlist
  3. Run ztl to activate

Use Obsidian Advanced URI to open a note (can be downloaded from Obsidian plugin store) and uses Spotify Mini Alfred plugin ( to play a song.

- set up Spotify Alfred
- Obsidian
- Obsidian Advanced URI plugin
