Often, I come across interesting quotes or tips that are worth saving.
I’m lazy, so I needed a way to save them effortlessly – otherwise, I would forget or procrastinate.
I also wanted a pop out every now and then to remind me of my highlights, so I don’t have to manually check the quotes.
Then I hacked together a workflow that saves quotes using a shortcut and a cronjob that shows a random quote periodically (every 6 hours).
I used this setup for almost two years and it worked perfectly (My saved highlights: http://mhasbini.com/highlights.html).
Recently I decided to make the quotes accessible from the menu bar with the ability to easily change configurations and manage the quotes. I worked with a friend who had similar needs and so Quoter was born.
It just works and doesn’t get in your way. It’s configurable and lightweight (~3 MB compressed and have small footprint).
Hope you like it.
