I've been using AHK for a couple of years now (first introduction in 2014, so 3 yrs at the time of this writing), and I've noticed a couple of consistent things on the forums. It looks like the 3 most commonly used AHK scripts are for (1) either opening or focusing a program with a macro (2) expanding text to a larger script [with a replace or something] or (3) trying to figure out whether or not a tab is open in Chrome to activate or open if it is not. Recently I submitted a topic to my company's internal tech conference about using AutoHotkey to improve efficiency, and prepared a website to help new users get started. My topic was not selected for the conference, but I have now finished the website.
It is a configuration based web editor for generating AHK scripts with some of the (at least they appear to me to be) most commonly used actions for a hotkey/string. I think this will be a useful tool for people just getting started, or for more advanced users to share scripts via a url (which people may want to shorten).

Interesting concept. thanks for sharing
Just a note: Github pages now allows (nay, requires - they say) https even custom urls, so this now works even better in Firefox and other browsers that don't like http pages
