Quix with AlfredApp

I’ve built an AlfredApp workflow that makes quick SEO analyses on websites a lot easier. It basically prevents you from copy and pasting URLs into different tools a lot. I’m calling it Quix, after another tool I made, more on that below. If you just want to see the tool, skip the History part.

History

Once upon a time I built a productivity boosting bookmarklet called Quix. It was used by a lot of SEOs for a while to quickly analyze sites. Over time, as I didn’t do anything to it, it gradually broke down, until I realized the mess it was and took it down a few months ago.

You see, Quix had to do a request to a server on our end every time you performed a command. Because of GDPR and log files, this became a hot mess of its own that I’d rather not manage for a free tool. So I needed a better solution that wouldn’t touch any outside servers.

Demo

After you install this your workflow, the following magic happens when you hit Alt-Q ( ⎇-Q ):

Requirements

For this to work you need a Mac, with AlfredApp, and since it is a workflow, you’ll need their paid Powerpack too. Don’t worry it really is worth it on its own, even without this new added Quix goodness.
