Sorry for following up late on this.
I have two examples of implicit buttons that I think illustrates who Hyperbole
can be used.
- I my day job we use git(1) for version control and we use a web based ticket
system. The tickets are referred to with a name. So I have created an implicit
button that from the ticket name takes me to the ticket in my web browser. That
way I can in my personal notes refer to the ticket by using the name.
Since it is quite common for us to use the ticket name in development
branches too I can from places where the git branch is displayed also directly
go to the ticket. That can be in the elisp package magit or from a command
prompt showing the branch name or any other place where the ticket name is
Here the implicitness comes in. I could of course use the url to the ticket
in my notes but I cant have the url in the branch name in git.
- We have another in house web based tool that manages some resources. Those
resources are created to be accessed and used from code. In the code the
resources are not accessed using the url but other symbols are used. So again I
have created an implicit button, very similar to the one above, that when
clicked on the symbol in the code takes me to the corresponding resource in the
So unique problems for me where I can use the implicit button support and some
programming to make my day a little easier.
