Thanks, @PaulWalters and @ottmar. Regarding “not complete – more of a beta, IMO”. Well, Hook is billed mainly as a contextual access tool , as opposed to a search tool — one that provides the missing links. I.e., it’s described mainly as something that helps you link items together, something that was missing from macOS. If it were billed as a search tool, and didn’t provide search, then it would not even be beta. Consider the web: resources, links and a search engine. But the engine (e.g., Duck Duck Go or Google) isn’t for finding links, it’s for finding resources. So Hook doesn’t have a tool for random access to links. It’s more like associative memory than random access memory (that’s just an analogy). It doesn’t replace whatever aggregation tools people have. It’s meant to augment existing software, and help it work better together (link content within and between apps).
Having said that, we’ve had several requests (including here) to view multiple links (and aggregate info beyond 1:1 links), so (likely starting with 1.5) Hook will begin to introduce features along those lines. At that point we’ll expand how the tool is described. Whatever features we add or will add be based on its simple premises (e.g., facilitate contextual navigation of information; augment/leverage/bridge existing software rather than replace or compete; remain lean). Otherwise, the software would bloat. We anticipate several rounds of augmentation re this, some of which has already been described on Hook’s forum.
We’re delighted to have support for Tinderbox and we look forward to hearing how people use it. We’d like to publish some showcases, and we invite people who use Tinderbox and Hook together to share their usage; and we will continue to listen for ways to do better. For instance, we’d like to support multi-select in Tinderbox, which the current integration currently doesn’t (but a script written by RobTrew does, I believe.)
