Why Use Hyperbole (Use Cases)

Why Use Hyperbole (Use Cases)

1. Create a library of documents, link them on-the-fly and retrieve any one at the touch of a button containing its short id. See "hib-doc-id.el". (Use the Action Key to activate any cross-reference herein).
2. Action Key click to follow URLs with section links, Markdown links, Emacs outline heading links, Org mode links, file and directory links and program identifier references. See HTML Markdown and Emacs Outline Hash Links.
3. Random access to sections of a Table of Contents in DEMO, README and TUTORIAL files as well as Internet RFCs. Entries in a code library MANIFEST file work the same way. See Table of Contents Browsing.
4. Display and edit local or remote files and directories simply by pressing on their names. Hyperbole will automatically embed certain key variables in link pathnames so that as these links are moved from site to site and the variable values change at each site, the links maintained properly. See Path Suffixes and Variables and Path Prefixes.
5. Quickly search the web for targeted types of information such as programming questions, code libraries, images, videos, locations, word definitions, wikipedia entries or even tweets. See Hyperbole Menus.
6. Embed social media hashtags and user names in any text files. Then jump to the associated web page in your favorite web browser with an Action Key press. See Social Media Hashtags and Usernames.
7. Similarly, you can embed github and git object links in any files with a simple syntax and Hyperbole will display the associated objects with an Action Key press. See Github (Remote) References and Git (Local) References.
8. Full-text search for any contact-related information across thousands of contacts in under a second. The fastest contact manager you have ever used, with hierarchical entries so you can easily find everyone on a particular team or within an organization. Then collapse all matches to a single line each while still seeing name, phone number and email information. Edit entries with a single key press. See HyRolo.
9. Select regions of structured text or source code and to copy or move them between buffers with a single mouse drag or two key presses. These selectable things include: delimited pairs of (), @{@}, <>, [] and quote marks, source code functions, source code comments and matching tag pairs in HTML and SGML modes. See Thing Selection.
10. Use the fantastic, auto-numbered Koutliner with per-item links and rapidly changeable views. See Koutliner.
