Hook’s AppleScript Dictionary


Hook’s main function is to interact with other apps: opening items for you, serving links to their items, and creating new linked items. To do that, Hook communicates with those apps any way it is configured to (AppleScript, JavaScript, command line, x-callback-url.com, whatever).

Controlling Hook

It is also possible control Hook itself using programs you or others write, using Hook’s AppleScript dictionary. Hook’s dictionary will be described here. For now, please simply download Hook and check out its AppleScript dictionary.

You can also control Hook via a command line interface, which was created by Brett Terpstra.

Hook’s AppleScript dictionary was updated in Hook 2.0, published in November 2020: Changes to Hook’s AppleScript API coming in Hook 2.0 – Releases – Hook Productivity Forum. That page contains high level details for the AppleScript.
