How to solve this problem?

Solution no. 1:

Keymando – $19, 30-day free trial. Uses Ruby as its scripting language.

IronAHK will run AHK scripts, but for its GUI it requires X11.app. I don’t believe it can automate regular Mac apps.

Solution no. 3:

Quicksilver can be a partial solution for some functionality of autohotkey: it has shortcut key/trigger defining capabilities. For text expansion, mas os has text expansion built in.

On the other hand, applescript/automator is the mac os native solution for some automation tasks.

Solution no. 4:

Take a look at Butler. Free to try, $20 to buy.

I haven’t yet found an open source tool for Mac like AHK.

Solution no. 5:

I currently use KeyRemap4MacBook which is greati for key mappings, including chords of keys. It doesn’t have a scripting language though. Keyboard Maestro seems a popular option with some scripting support (I have not tried it myself though).

Solution no. 6:

Autohotkey Mac Os Catalina

No one’s mentioned Quicksilver – free utility with tons of plugins for extendability.
