Shift Integration

Is Shift integration likely in a future release?

I downloaded their app and saw they have no AppleScript dictionary.

So, I asked Shift, using this form: New Ticket - Shift and got this response back by email :

We currently do not have plans of linking Shift to a third-party tool, but I encourage you to fill out this survey to voice your request!

A bit surprised because there seem to be a ton of extensions for the product. Maybe their extension mechanism would provide additional hope. In any event, I filled out the survey making a feature request.

If you wanted to go through the same process, here are some tips: Contacting Developers of Other Apps – Hook.

Thanks, Luc!

Hi @jlilken - I’m a Shift user, too. I’ve also been looking at ways to use Hook and Shift. What are trying to do? Maybe we can put our heads together and find some workarounds?

Letting them know that we’d like some automation of linking is the first step. It does not have to be AppleScript. E.g., the API can be a CLI or some bridge.

Hi, @RochelleB. Have been using Shift less lately, and no time right now to explore it. Thanks for reaching out, though.

Great news!!! Shift has been updated to V8 and is no longer an Electron app. It now seems properly follows Hook links. I haven’t yet found that Hook can see linkable items in Shift, unfortunately. But it’s now running on a Chrome backend.
