Browse Hook Bookmarks

Recommended Posts

This workflow enables you to search your hook productivity bookmarks.


You can get our workflow from Hook's Alfred page.


Regarding Hook and its bookmarks


Hook is a truly universal, contextual bookmarking app. It enables you to bookmark and bidirectionally link ('hook together') items from almost any app: such as web pages, files, emails, tasks ( OmniFocus, Things, etc.), etc.


For instance, you could bring up the Hook ( ⌘⇧SPACE) popup window on this web page, choose `Copy Link` ( ⌘C), and then paste the link anywhere you want. You could then bring up Hook on a document (in Finder,  BBEdit, Drafts, Bear or other apps), bring up Hook again (⌘⇧SPACE), and `Hook to Copied Link` (V).That would hook them together.  Whenever you hook items together (or in 2.0, use `Copy Link` or `add bookmark`),  Hook creates bookmarks in its database.


This workflow, then, lets you browse and search for any Hook bookmark you like.

Love this! Thank you!


I'd love to be able to create a Hook for Alfred itself so that I can Hook (bookmark/link )all my workflows.


I have so many I've made / collected over the years it's hard to remember them all. If I could hook a workflow to a certain file type (not just a single file) and or other workflows it'd be a great way to remember all your related tools. 👍
