I’m the developer of Trickster, another productivity app for the Mac. Trickster is a menu-bar app that monitors folders that you select for modified or opened files apps and folders and then can give you quick access to them.
These days Trickster, along with Hook, participate in the WinterFest sale of artisanal Mac software.
Since Hook doesn’t have existing integration with Trickster, and Trickster does have enough AppleScript support to allow it expose the recent files it has, I’ve created the needed integration scripts. I hope they can be included in the future update scripts that are updated through Hook.
Here’s an example video of the integration in action. The scripts are below.
tell application "Trickster" set se to selected entries set t to item 1 of se set filename to file name of t end tell
tell application "Trickster" set se to selected entries set t to item 1 of se set fileurl to (url of t) set a to POSIX path of fileurl set f to "file://" & a end tell
