Link to a note/card from external app?

Is there anyway to link to a specific note/card within Anki Desktop from an external app?

I’d love a tighter integration between my note taking app and Anki, where I can link to the cards I’ve created, and easily navigate directly from the original notes to those created in Anki.

Usually I’d expect x-callbacks to be able to do this sort of thing (on macOS), but I see x-callbacks are only utilised by AnkiMobile. Any work arounds that might be possible?

Anki doesn’t have such a feature at the moment - the closest you’ll get is to to give each of your traditional notes an ID, then add a field to your Anki notes that specifies the id, so you can search for it.
