  • SearchLink 2.2.3 with Apple Music searches

    Most of my free projects are the result of solving my own problems, and often get left behind once I'm not actively using them anymore. Among the ones I've used every day for years now is SearchLink. I still consider it the most useful thing I've ever written.…

  • SearchLink 2.2.2

    SearchLink 2.2.2 is up. Steve Lambert pointed out a bug in the Wikipedia search where a new redirect to SSL was causing SearchLink to fail on all !wiki searches. 2.2.2 fixes this.…

  • SearchLink 2.2.0. Awesome.

    I'm officially announcing SearchLink 2.2.0 today. It's still free (for now), and I'm really excited about this update. The documentation has been updated and the changelog is immense.…

  • Install SearchLink without the Terminal hassle

    I just wanted to drop a quick note to let everyone know that SearchLink can now be installed without any command line mucking around. It's just a matter of downloading and double-clicking to enjoy all of the SearchLink magic.…

  • SearchLink fixes (2.1.2)

    Among other niggling issues, if you had Amazon affiliate information set to empty or false (i.e. disabled), it would always insert an inline link, regardless of preferences. This is fixed.…

  • SearchLink 2.1.1: blogger friendlier

    Version 2.1.1 of SearchLink is up, and it adds only one new feature. It's one I've been using a lot, though, so I figured I'd better go ahead and share it.…

  • SearchLink 2.1

    I've bumped SearchLink up to version 2.1. It has several new features that make it an all-around powerhouse for linking.…

  • SearchLink 2.0

    SearchLink 2.0 is up now. I had enough changes to make after the last version --- which I already thought was a pretty big step forward --- that I decided it was time for a major version bump. If you're not familliar with SearchLink as a tool for speedier blogging and online writing, see the project page for more info.…

  • SearchLink 1.8 is the new Auto-Link Service

    I've updated SearchLink to v1.8 with a couple of improvements. SearchLink is a System Service for quickly turning selected text into Markdown links based on various search engines. See the SearchLink project page for more details.…

  • A better SearchLink fix

    Thanks to notes from Jeremy Mack and die_krabbe, SearchLink is restored to its former glory, complete with a working iTunes API search for the Mac App Store. It's also now Mavericks-compatible and should handle UTF-8 characters appropriately.…

  • A SearchLink MAS stopgap

    If you use SearchLink at all, you've probably noticed that the Mac App Store searches have stopped working. This happened the day iOS 7 came out, and it still hasn't resolved. iTunes App Store links are functioning better, but the MAS returns no results. In order to be able to continue using the utter convenience that is SearchLink, I've switched (!mas) searches to use a Google site search instead. This is a temporary stopgap, and I'll switch back to using the iTunes Search API once it can…

  • Searchlink 1.6 update

    Thanks to a catch and fix from Nathan Henrie, the SearchLink service has been updated to 1.6. It was snagging on matches where a link` preceded a Searchlink `text type of link and combining the url with the search command. This is remedied now, and thanks to Nathan for the fix!…

  • SearchLink 1.5 with Amazon search and affiliate linking

    Yes, I updated SearchLink again (another lunchtime project). I added Amazon search (!a) and a configuration option to allow auto-creation of affiliate links. If you set the option to false it will return straight Amazon links.…

  • SearchLink gets a little smarter

    I find SearchLink to be one of my most useful Services to date. I don't even use the Auto-Link command from the Markdown Service Tools anymore. In case you haven't seen it yet, it allows you to quickly enter simple markers in your text and then automatically run various types of web searches and insert the top result as a Markdown link automatically. It saves a ton of time when you're linking lists of apps, adding definitions, referencing iTunes and Last.fm artists and much more.…

  • SearchLink: automated Markdown linking improved

    SearchLink is a System Service for OS X that handles searching multiple sources and automatically generating Markdown links for text. It allows you to just write, marking things to link as you go. When you're done, you run it on the document and --- if your queries were good --- have your links generated automatically without ever opening a browser.…
