      Keyboard Maestro vs QuicKeys opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Keyboard Maestro is not merely a "text expander". It is a tool for increasing your efficiency in most operations on a Mac from system preferences and utilities to applications. It is so powerful that everything else pales by comparison. If you decide to try it you will only scratch the surface of its capabilities for the first year.

    3. aText accelerates your typing by replacing abbreviations with frequently used phrases you define. E.g. make an abbreviation “myname” to insert your name “First Middle Last” in any application. With aText you can easily avoid typing the same thing over and over.

      TextExpander vs QuicKeys opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      For text macros, TextExpander is the best. It's simple to use, powerful, and free for non-commercial use. Sadly, Quickeys is no longer supported, and the dog-in-the-manger owners of the software refuse to let it into the public domain.

    5. This is a tool for powerful automation of OS X. At its core, Hammerspoon is just a bridge between the operating system and a Lua scripting engine.


    6. What is Typinator? Have you ever experienced the tedium and frustration of having to repeatedly type your name, e-mail address, home page url, or other words or phrases again, again and again?
    7. Simple shortcut manager for macOS 10.8 or higher. It lets you execute any command that works in your terminal by pressing a combination of keyboard keys. No rocket science involved!.

    10. Keysmith lets you create keyboard shortcuts for any string of actions you can do with your mouse and keyboard. And Keysmith is smart. It isn't just clicking on coordinates, it's aware of apps, windows, buttons, lists, and more.
