A couple weeks ago I toyed with the idea of using Alfred instead of Keyboard Maestro for snippets and some simple automation. If I can reduce the number of apps I'm running by one, why not? I bought the powerpack for Alfred a long time ago and I setup a workflow named "Start my day" that updates brew, atom, and oh-my-zsh then starts up the apps I use on a typical day at work. When I copied my snippets over I disabled Keyboard Maestro and so far I haven't needed to start it for anything. Looks like I can get by with just Alfred.
