Autohotkey for Mac
Searched for a Mac equivalent but nothing
Then after a bit of more searching I found Typinator. It isn't exactly like AHK but does AutoCorrect of spelling and shortcuts.
Hope this helps someone else in case you were struggling to find something whilst using Mac. Downside is you have to buy the app.
I had tried RapidoWrite (you have to search for the last free version) but your shortest keyboard shortcut had to be at least three characters. The program writers (app4mac.com) told me that they have updated it and the new one is now called Presto (which you also have to buy).
I like Typinator over Presto because Presto shows all results listed when you type a certain shortcut and you have to scroll down with the arrow keys and press enter to get it.
Typinator does similar things like : ?*:url::http://www.autohotkey.com and :*:lnk::http://www.google.com/
Hope this helps a little bit

Presto: http://www.app4mac.c...s&product_id=17 and you will have to search for RapidoWrite as it is no longer available on app4mac site as freeware.
I can send freeware file if PM me.
You're going to need the source and a copy of monodevelop.

I don't know of any mac binaries but they might be in there.
I use AutoHotKey on my PC And I'd like to use some of my scripts, on my laptop a MacBook pro.
I Downloaded Mono and the source of ironAHK but I don't know what to do. All thing I've tried didn't worked...
Can you give me some help?
Mac OS X comes with Automator. And even before Automator, there was Apple Script. But with Automator, you can either record events using a recorder, which makes life a lot easier, or you can use the GUI based tool to generate macros based on smaller tasks.
You actually DO need Autohotkey on the MAC !
I have been fussing with Applescript but it is really too cumbersome. I'm a programmer whereas Applescript has been written for non-programmers (I could go past that), however, the recording does not work... or better, it only works with applications that are "Applescritable", ie. almost none nowadays... so.... basically it sucks.
There is an initiave to port AHK to MAC, but it seems to be going nowhere (or at really slow pace). It's called IronAHK ( http://www.ironahk.net/ )...
What I mean here is that the applications have to be written to support Applescript - which, you guess it, no one bothers with anymore. Even native Apple shipped apps, have little to no support at all for AS.
