Direct Download RH
This Shortcut downloads Shortcuts directly into your Shortcuts library for your convenience, through using iCloud URL’s, RoutineHub IDs and/or Base 64 Encodings
What do I gain?
As I mentioned previously, you get convenience of not having to switch from Safari and Shortcuts, but not only that. This Shortcut is designed to be a dependencey installer.
What is a Dependency Installer?
A Dependency Installer is a Shortcut that downloads for the user all of the Shortcuts needed for it to work, quick and easy. This Shortcut could even bypass installing the Shortcuts if the user has them already installed.
Wait a minute! This sounds like DependKit
That’s because this Shortcut was inspired by DependKit!!! I can’t give enough thanks to @heyitzspencer for creating the wonderful DependKit. I felt the need to make Direct Download RH since Apple was updating Shortcuts, but DependKit wasn’t fixing itself to work with the newest versions and therefore it didn’t work as well as it could.
