Hook integration scripts v. 128 is now available. We’ve updated the integration scripts for the Curio app by @georgezengobi — a user-friendly note-taking, brainstorming and mind-mapping app for the Mac. With experience with Curio, we’ve found that Hook’s default scripts to get the address and name of Curio items are more suitable for hooking Curio documents to other resources. Curio provides a keyboard shortcut and menu command for getting deep links, which can also be applied to
Hook to Copied Link. So now users can get the best of both worlds.
If you prefer the previous integration or want to better understand the trade-offs, please visit the new Using Hook with Curio help page. The previous Curio script is very brief and easy to swap in.
We’ve also published a blog post that showcases Curio, a Cognitive Tool for Researchers and Creatives. You will notice in the blog post that Curio supports multiple forms of deep linking, including deep links to PDFs! That means that with Curio, you can copy a link to a specific selection of text and paste it anywhere! You can even use it in
Hook to Copied Link.
To my knowledge, Curio is the first Mac app on the market to programmatically support deep linking to content in PDFs. So congratulations @georgezengobi ! Your support for linking, automated and in the UI, is deeply commendable.
How to get the updated integration
Hook’s automatic software update (if enabled) automatically updates Hook’s integration scripts without you needing to relaunch Hook. Using Hook’s
Check for App Updates and Update Scripts command also updates the scripts, without you needing to relaunch Hook.
We also bundle Hook’s integration scripts with the Hook installer itself, of course.
