Depends on 2 packages(full list with versions):


This package is a database of link shortcuts. A Markdown example: [Google](@w) turns into

It’s intended to be used in wikis and text markup converters (such as Pandoc) and anywhere else where humans may be entering links.


  • Added useShortcutFrom.
  • @ is now allowed in Github/Gitlab/Bitbucket nicks.

  • Exported useShortcut (gee).

  • Exported Shortcut.
  • Renamed “brabraumeisterumeister” to “brew” (it still uses Braumeister, but this can change in the future).

  • Added shortcut names to their descriptions.

  • Descriptions of shortcuts look much better now.
  • “sublime” was renamed to “sublimepc”, since it’s possible that some other package manager for Sublime Text would emerge in the future.
  • Shortcut “tvt” for TV Tropes was removed – it’s just “tvtropes” now.
  • “facebook” can link to profiles by their ID.
  • “tvtropes” properly capitalises names of categories (if given as an option) – previously you needed to write e.g. “SugarWiki”, now “sugar wiki” works too.

First release.
