LaunchBar 6 actions

Custom actions for LaunchBar 6. Brewed myself, juryrigged from old applescripts, or contributed by contributors!

I no longer use LB6 so these actions will no longer be maintained, with the exception of tiny updates. Sorry!

For whoever is interested: I am porting many of these actions over to shell scripts in my dotfiles repo.


Download links are below.

Do not download this repo to install these actions. If you do anyway, you need to run

before any of the lbaction files are ready for installation.


I recommend you also install Prenagha's Action Updates action, for auto-updating actions. All of mine are compatible with his updater.
