An Alfred workflow to list IntelliJ IDEA recent opened projects.

Requirements: Go and Alfred Powerpack.

The storage file of IDEA’s recently opened project is

$HOME/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/IntelliJIdea*/options/recentProjects.xml

this program will parse this file and output it in alfred.

Download the ips.alfredworkflow and import it to alfred


ips ${name} will search all projects to list projects whose name contains ${name}


choose a project and press ↩, it will be opened by IDEA.

Only IntelliJ IDEA is supported now, if you need other JetBrains IDE’s support, welcome issue 🙂
