Automation Orchard

May 07, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

Just when it feels like interest in workflow automation is dying, I discover a terrific new site: Automation Orchard. The new site has a terrific navigation and crosses over between iOS and Mac through a single portal. I also like that the site aggregates links from other sites to avoid a single perspective.

Automation Orchard goes way beyond a few apps on iOS. The collections are broken down between hardware, software, and web services. Imagine if Pinboard had currated tags to separate Amazon Echo automation articles from HomeKit. Or DEVONthink automation from LaunchCenter Pro.

You can also hit the main bookmark list and navigate by tags or search.

I'm not saying that I think automation is "back" but it's nice to remember there are a lot of different kinds of nerds out there and that there are still plenty of people enjoy fiddling like I do.
