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.


default keyword: hm


The default keyword to access this workflow is 'hm' (short for 'hook bookmark')


Usage Example:


To find all Hook bookmarks that contain `.pdf`, in Alfred type : `hm .pdf`




This workflow requires version 1.5 or newer of Hook Essentials or Pro. Hook is available from the Hook productivity website: https://hookproductivity.com .


Hook requires macOS 10.12.6 or newer. Hook is currently at version 1.8.




This workflow's homepage on the Hook website is here: Free Alfred Workflows for Controlling Hook.

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. 👍

Hey thanks for this. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't understand how to install this workflow (with Hook 3.4.3 and Alfred 4.6.3).  All I get from the workflow download on this page (https://hookproductivity.com/help/automation/alfred-workflows/) is a zip file that contains two png images and a file called info.plist. If I change the extension of the zip file to ".alfredworkflow" Alfred tells me that this is not a valid workflow. How do I install this?


Thanks for the help

In case anyone is using this, the workflow needs updating to work with the Hook -> Hookmark rebranding. 


Editing the script filter in the workflow and changing  



fixes it.

It works! Thanks a lot.😀

That doesn't seem to work for me. I have the SetApp version and it somehow is different. Still experimenting to find the issue.


I also have the Setapp version and changing `tell Hook` to `tell Hookmark` worked for me. Is it possible that your Setapp install needs to be updated to the new branding for Hookmark? You might try uninstalling and reinstalling from Setapp and then trying again.

I have just today for the first time added the Hookmark workflow for Alfred.  I am using Hookmark v 5.1.3  and Alfred v 5.1.2.  It doesn't work when I type hm Alfred wants to search Google, Amazon, or Wikipedia.  I thought with this workflow I could browse a list of my hooks.  I must be doing something wrong, can anyone help?
