Today we updated Hook scripts for EagleFiler and and AirMail Beta. To get the latest scripts, just click the Update Now button:
Hook > Preferences > Script Editor tab > Update Now (button)
or relaunch Hook (assuming you’ve enabled auto-script updates on that tab)
EagleFiler support gains a new “Link to New” script, courtesy of Michael Tsai, the highly respected developer of the venerable EagleFiler app and blogger. A major advantage of EagleFiler over other personal information management is that it keeps your files right on the file system where, in my opinion, they normally belong.
You will see an EagleFiler entry under “Link to New”. Selecting that will create a new RTF that gets stored in EagleFiler. Selecting this link will not open the file itself, it will reveal the file in EagleFiler. And when you open the file, you will not (currently) see that link.
However, there is another option, which we recommend to EagleFiler users. And that is to set the
Hook > Preferences > Notes tab > Notes folder preference
to be a folder in EagleFiler !
Today, I myself have set my “Link to New” preference in this way, so that I can leverage EagleFiler for managing my Hook-created notes.
- I will blog and post more about Hook and EagleFiler. You can also read about EagleFiler in my book Cognitive Productivity with macOS®: 7 Principles for Getting Smarter with Knowledge, which I updated last week to discuss EagleFiler (and some other personal information management apps).
- I will update my book, too, to reflect my new experience with EagleFiler + Hook.
- I will blog about the history of Hook, discussing the influence of Michael Tsai blogging on Hook’s design.
Hook already supported AirMail. Today, we’ve added support for AirMail Beta.
