Matching AutoHotkey Mentors to Mentees- Working with Nested Objects

As you may know, I’ve created this site to sign up for / be an AutoHotkey mentor  (I think having a mentor and being a mentor are critical steps to growing)

Matching AutoHotkey Mentors to Mentees was much more complicated than I had anticipated.  After some work I realized using objects in AutoHotkey would be a great way to handle the data so I asked Isaias Baez to “drive” as he’s better with objects than I.

56th AutoHotkey Webinar: Pulover’s Macro Creator by Rodolfo Batista

AutoHotkey webinarWe were fortunate enough to have Rodolfo Batista come to our 56th AutoHotkey webinar and talk through his amazing Pulover’s Macro Creator!

The first hour Rodolfo talked through it’s creation, usage and common users

The Second hour we dove a bit deeper into Pulover’s Macro Creator and some of his other tools.   The Listview class of his was a topic of this past webinar lead by Jean Lalonde (author of Quick Access Popup).  You can access Pulover’s (Rodolfo’s) Github here

This script gets ~3,000 Downloads per week!  And is an amazingly popular sub-thread on the AutoHotkey forum

The tool was first created in April of 2012.  This means for nearly 10 years Rodolfo has worked on this on his own time!  If you’ve ever benefited from using the tool, please consider donating to him.  I did as, when I was first learning AHK, I used his tool to help see what code was being generated.

Publishing your code into places like: Facebook, YouTube, or even WordPress can be a pain!   For years I struggled with WordPress breaking my scripts even though they were tagged to leave them alone.

I finally had enough of WordPress breaking my scripts and asked Maestrith (the other of AHK Studio) to help borrow from the code built into AHK Studio that pushes via an API call to GitHub.   We came up with the below code which makes it really easy to post your code in an HTML document or just link to a page that will render properly (and show Intellisense). You’ll need to swap out the endpoint (GitName) and your secret Token to get it to work, otherwise it will be a breeze!  You can read more about GISTs here
