Paste text and process it in various ways with this tiny Swift-based app that can have its functionality extended with user-made plugins
Whether you’re a developer or your job just involves working with text of any kind, chances are you’ve had to put it through some type of online formatter on several occasions. Obviously, that’s not the best idea when dealing with sensitive info, nor it is particularly efficient.
Just Boop it
In a world where web technologies seem to be making their way into many of our desktop apps, Boop is refreshingly built with Swift, making it lightweight and efficient. It integrates well with the OS and doesn’t use up a browser’s worth of memory in the process.
To edit some text, simply paste it in the main window. You’ll notice that the app supports both syntax highlighting and line numbering, which is great if you’re into coding and stuff. Once you’re done being amazed, press ⌘B to open the script picker.
Depending on what you need to do, simply start typing the command’s description and the app will provide appropriate suggestions. After using a script, you can press ⇧⌘B to run it again. To clear everything, use ⌘N.
Even more scripts
If you’re more the plug-and-play type, you can check out this folder in the project’s GitHub repository. New scripts should be added here by the community, and you can just download and integrate them directly.
In the end, Boop is as useful as its integrated plugins. There are a decent number of preloaded ones, but the app has many other potential uses, provided you’re imaginative enough with your plugins. Alternatively, you can just wait for the community to create them as the app grows in popularity.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Boop for Mac and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
