macos - AutoHotkey Equivalent for OS X? - Ask Different
hammerspoon looks like best option in that it's scriptable (but probably less featureful than the paid "Keyboard Maestro")

Where are my iBooks stored in macOS Sierra? - Ask Different
example for finding mentions of a string:
<go to that direction>
pt -c 'foobar' | awk -F: 'function dir(path) {sub("/.*", "", path); return path} {a[dir($1)]+=$2} END{for (k in a) {print a[k], k}}' | sort -nr
now wrapped up in a script: ~/bin/ibooks_mentions

malware - Can a PDF file contain a virus? - Information Security Stack Exchange
There are many features in the PDF that can be used in malicious ways without exploiting a vulnerability. One example is given by Didier Stevens here. Basically he embeds an executable and has it launch when opening the file. I am not sure how today's versions of readers handle this but its a good method of using PDF features in malicious ways.


Yes it can. PDF is a rich format that aside form static content, can contain dynamic elements. The latter can for example contain JavaScript, and other elements. Modern PDF viewers tend to warn the user about potential malicious activity though.

ipad - Is it possible to search for text in iBooks or the Kindle app? - Ask Different
If you wanted to know whether you can enter a search term at the top-level of these apps and have them search across all books stored in the app: No, currently neither iBooks nor the Kindle app have such a feature.

However, I have seen this capability on the Kindle device itself – I own a Kindle keyboard model and there is a "search my items" option available that will search all books on the device for a given term.

applescript - How do I collect all of my notes and highlights from iBooks? - Ask Different
iBooks doesn't have AppleScript support. The annotations are stored in a SQLite file: ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.iBooksX/Data/Documents/AEAnnotation/.

Quiver | HappenApps
would be interesting to compare this w/ Workflowy (maybe keep Workflowy for most stuff but try out Quiver on a software side project)

biggest problems:
1. linear rather than hierarchical
2. lack of custom preamble (a limitation of MathJax). you can only define macros

both definitely are side effects of targeting programmers working on individuated projects rather than universal notetaking

design goals: http://yaoganglian.com/2015/12/06/What-is-Quiver/
