Automation of Hook
You can now control Hook programmatically thanks to its new AppleScript dictionary. You can get a list of all the bookmarks created by Hook. For any bookmark, you can get all the bookmarks hooked (linked) to it. You can also automatically invoke Hook on a particular file bookmark. There are some other functions. (Not all Hook functions are currently exposed.)
That means that you can control Hook with launchers (such as Alfred and LaunchBar), Keyboard Maestro, or other scripts and programs.
- Here are some Alfred workflows you can use for controlling Hook.
- And Free LaunchBar Actions for Controlling Hook are coming soon.
Please consider sharing your Hook automation scripts, LaunchBar actions, Alfred Workflows, Keyboard Maestro macros and other automations of Hook — on the Hook productivity forum or wherever else there are interested readers.
A version of the Trickster app (by Apparent Software) that leverages Hook’s automation is coming soon. It will mark Hook-linked files with a special icon, so you can easily see which files have hooked links.
