On Windows I use a simple Autohotkey script that allows me to easily bind to and switch beetween opened windows.
For example, I'm about to be using a browser, two consoles and a text editor in the next hour. So I open the browser and press
Ctrl+Win+1 to bind it to the
1 key. Similarly, I map consoles to
3 keys, and the editor to
And now I can switch to the specific app just by pressing
Alt+<number>. It allows me to work literally not touching a mouse for hours. I can't imagine my life without it.
The question is: How do I achieve this on El Capitan? I've tried the Automator and Karabiner apps, but did not succeed.
