Using Hook with Reeder

I was able to modify the “Get Address” script for Readkit to work for the Reeder RSS reader also:

tell application "System Events"
	tell process "Reeder"
		tell menu bar 1
			try
				tell menu "Share"
                	click menu item "Copy Link"
                	delay 0.01
                	get the clipboard
                end tell
			end try
		end tell
	end tell
end tell

Tested on Reeder 5 (com.reederapp.5.macOS) but likely works on older versions too, as I think the same menu item existed.

I haven’t yet been able to figure out a way to write a “Get Name” script yet — the article title appears in the window, but it doesn’t seem to set the window title or anything, so it’s beyond my limited AppleScript knowledge.

Welcome to the Hook Productivity Forum , @benjamineskola . And thanks for sharing !

I haven’t tried your script yet. But if you open a Hook-bookmarked web page in a web browser (like Safari), Hook will automatically associate the title with the bookmark for that URL. So the next time you invoke Hook on the web page, you should see the title.

I encountered the same issue with Reeder 4. Hook was able to identify the URL from a selected article in Reeder, but I was not sure how to copy the item as Markdown link.

Hook now has New Command: Focus on Copied Link ⌃⇧⌘L – Hook, so Reeder users can copy the link and focus on it if they want to see what’s associated with it.

To my knowledge, Reeder has no x-callback-url or AppleScript that we can use. If it does, then we could add scripts for it.
best option is Contacting Developers of Other Apps and Information for Developers – Hook.
