Product description: Keyboard Maestro enables users to automate anything on the Mac ecosystem. Android users can relate this to Tasker. One can automate file renames, open and close files, run shell scripts, do magic with text content and expand texts and do a lot more. At least, these are few things I have achieved with Keyboard Maestro until now. Not a free app. Priced at 36 USD. I use it and love it.

@iarunsb I've used this for a while. It's really useful for automating things you do all the time. I use it to quickly move my mouse from screen/to screen (terminal to web browser). So i can keep hands on keyboard when going between the two.

@mscccc Same here. Have tons of Macros, connecting text to codes to applications to web apps to everything. One of the best investments, I would call.

@iarunsb could I use this to automate calendar export to a specific folder on a certain date or in intervals?
Arun SathiyaHunter@arunsathiya · Prev, marketing at Freshworks Inc.
@mannyorduna Should be absolutely possible. Keyboard Maestro has interface control units, application control and allows you to set destination for your actions - should enable you to achieve this.

@pallav_agarwal Ill have to agree here. BTT is an amazing product with continuous updates and developed by a great dev.

@pallav_agarwal Better Touch Tool is awesome, it doesn't play well with a Wacom Tablet though.

@pallav_agarwal it’s a whole different type of app. Keyboard Maestro automates what you’re usually doing with your fingers. Need to enter thousand of spreadsheet contact one by one to HubSpot? Keyboard Maestro can handle it. Do you want to create a custom app that monitors front application window title and resize it every time you launch it? Keyboard Maestro can handle it. Need to move a mouse cursor to detected image on the screen? Keyboard Maestro can handle it. BetterTouchTool is a beast at handling touch-based devices. Keyboard Maestro is on another level at automating your works. Here’s some examples from my post in 2014:
