I’ve now got Hook coordinating all my different projects using TextEdit documents of links. It works well.
The only regular activity left that I want to make easier is bringing up Terminal in an appropriate directory. I do this a lot.
I can create a HookLink to the directory, click on it and control-click the path at the bottom of the finder window ‘new terminal in folder’, but that’s painful and leaves extra windows around. I would like it to be a single click. I don’t mind having to edit URLs manually to achieve it.
I think there may be a theoretical problem with Hook’s model: one document type (folder, in this case), one action. So there’s no UI paradigm for saying ‘Given you’ve selected a folder, now select what you want the HookLink to do with it’; all the UI options, like ‘copy all links’, appear hard coded. But as I said above, I’d be happy to hack the link. Something like:
[Terminal in Documents](hook://file/hgaaJP9F3?action=BringUpATerminal&n=Documents)
Might there be any way to do that?
