I use this little workflow a lot now that helps me to quickly test out ideas I am working on.
I have a single macro called
test put in my general global group so it can be ran from any app.
It looks like this for me :
Say I want to create some macro, any macro. Unless it is super simple and I can do it straight away, I just make the macro straight away. If not, I usually use this
test macro to quickly make it out as I want.
The reason for that is that I can assign a hotkey I prefer to calling it. In my case I actually call this
test macro externally from Karabiner but you can assign any hotkey you like for it.
Then I use this macro :
go to test macro.kmmacros (2.3 KB)
Which by pressing ⌃ + C will go to this
test macro instantly.
Once I am done playing with the macro and I am happy with it, I transfer the actions from it to what my actual macro I wanted to make with the name and everything.
I also use this
test macro often to test out new ideas or new KM8 features.
And sometimes use it to test out some applescript or JXA code although the latter is still to me.
In any way, I hope this was interesting and useful to some of you. Perhaps you have some similar system you use to rapidly prototype and test macros.
