I currently use Hazel to instantly commit any changes I make to all the curated lists I maintain. As well as CSV files of Web Searches and Ask Create Share.

I also automate committing the README of my macOS & iOS repo as I want to instantly push any changes I make to the repo.

Since I want to keep my macOS repo always updated, I made a macro to open the README file in Sublime Text so I can quickly make a change, save and the change will instantly be committed with update readme message.

The Hazel rule for this is simple and looks like this:

With this as the shell script:

Here it is in code:

git add README.md
git commit -m "update readme"
git push

I sync all my Hazel rules with Dropbox.


  • If you want to have your rules to be applied onto subfolders as well as the directory chosen, add this rule.

  • If extensions are hidden, don't add extensions in the rule editor too.
