Hook integration scripts v. 153 now available — Support for Soulver 3, a notepad with calculator

With version 153 of Hook integration scripts, available now, Hook joins a bunch of great apps, such as Lacona and Alfred that work with Soulver 3. Now you can link your Soulver info to just about anything!

Soulver is a smart notepad with a built-in calculator.
Get instant answers to calculations in text.

It’s a better way to work stuff out than a traditional calculator,
and a more lightweight tool for quick calculations than a spreadsheet.

You might recall that Brett Terpstra mentioned Soulver in his post, My favorite stuff from 2014, Part 1 - BrettTerpstra.com.

Integration notes

:thinking: The current integration relies on UI scripting assuming Soulver’s UI is English (it would be trivial to change this for other languages supported by Soulver). If Soulver were to support automated linking (e.g., with x-callback-url) we’d update Hook to use it.

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 app itself, of course. We update Hook’s integration server more frequently than the app itself.

Sharing

Later, we’ll add a link here to the upcoming “Using Hook With Soulver” page.

Meanwhile, please feel free to give the integration a try. And if you have some thoughts to share about it, please tweet or respond here about it.

Here’s a tweet about it.
