This code will allow you to grab the current link or selection from an open mac application and insert it as a hyperlink at point in an org-mode document.

Supported Application

The following applications are currently supported:



Add the org-mac-link-grabber/lisp directory to your load-path, and then add

(require 'org-mac-link-grabber) 

to your .emacs. You may also optionally bind a key to activate the link grabber menu, like this:

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () 
  (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)))


Activate the grabber by typing C-c g (or whatever key you decided to bind, as above), or type M-x omgl-grab-link RET. This will give you a menu in the modeline allowing you to select an application. The current selection in that application will be inserted at point as a hyperlink in your org-mode document.


You may customize which applications appear in the grab menu by customizing the group org-mac-link-grabber. Changes take effect immediately.
