Make adoc-studio a linkable app
Luc P. Beaudoin
I would like adoc to be a linkable app, meaning have an API and UI for linking. See that page for benefits of linkability. This is also discussed in the Manifesto for Ubiquitous Linking which was co-originated by Frank Blome. See also its rationale page.
In a nutshell it would allow adoc users to use generic and special purpose tools to create links to/from adoc documents, which in turn would make it easy to access adoc documents from outside and within adoc.
See also Information for Developers to Make Their Apps Linkable (API Requirements for Compatibility with Hookmark) – Hookmark.
Implementation wise, an app can be made linkable by providing AppleScript, x-callback-url or other means.
basically we need automation for:
Copy Link( get the name and the URL of the current document). The URL scheme can be file:// or your own custom scheme.
"new item". Takes a title as input variable, and you return
boolean (success/failure), and
the URL of the new item
details on that page.
Most writing apps on the Mac are linkable. Compare this (incomplete) list of Link-friendly Mac Apps (hookproductivity.com).
