What apps have you made using AppleScript? Post your apps and tell us what they do.
I've made a few small ones but nothing much.

Here's one I made to start off the thread.

It's awesome. I'm sure you non-Windows users will agree. :P

Here's one to kill the Finder on startup and make it easier to surf your Mac using the Terminal.

Let me know if the enabler actually works, though, because if not, I need to change the script. The restart command is a legacy command and I'm not sure if it will absolutely work or if will give you a "can't do it" error.

OK, made one other change, which is just a name change. Everything else is the same, but the new name is more indicative of what it does.

I completely forgot about this one I did. It's the Birthday Script, but BE WARNED--it is profane. Now that you have been warned, find out just how filthy mouthed your Mac really is.

You have been warned, so no complaints.

Here is Damned, the AppleScript From Hell. In order to use it, you will need to enable access for assistive devices in the Universal Access preference pane.

Moose, Damned Script just shows the power of OSX. If something like that would have run in Windows, it would be dead.

For proof try this

Goto C:\ -> New Text Document -> Type in Call A.bat (Try Call A if this doesnt work) -> Save -> Rename New Text Document to A.bat. -> Click A.bat and see Windows Crash and Burn.

NOTE: You Must have "Hide File Extensions Of known Filetypes" Disabled for this to work.

Here's another basic script that I made.
Try it on your friends and tell them that it's an update or something. ;)
It opens most of the basic Mac apps one after another continuously. Some of the apps that it opens are from iLife '06, so make sure that you have that too.

I made a ton of scripts...

-"OCD My Windows" is a fairly easily moddable script, tat when run, puts the windows of all the stuff I usually have open into it's place. But I don't give that one out to anyone...ask my privately if you want it.

-"Auto Reply Bot" AKA CarterBot is a huge script for the Leopard version of ichat. It has a huge list of text triggers that anyone you're talking to can say, and it will react instantly with a programmed or random answer. Again, also by request only...

-"Change Play Count" is a short script for iTunes that allows the user to edit the selected song's play count...that will be available in the next version of xMod, so I'm not giving out the script file just yet.

I have written bunches and bunches for my application, xMod, and even more just for my convenience. I consider myself an AppleScript and AppleScript Studio master, so if anyone needs a custom script, just let me know!

Here's one I just made. It opens the Finder to where the intro movie/sound clips are stored so you can copy them to anywhere you like. (or just see/listen to them)

Have fun! :lol:

Ok, got a new one. This little handy tool gives you 3 options (Restart Finder, Restart Dock, and Empty Trash).

Hi all,

I'm after an Applescript which will launch automatically as a login item, wait for 5 minutes then restart the Mac without the need for user intervention.

The reason I want this functionality is to test machines which have intermittent kernel panics. These are often related to the Airport Extreme card or the ATI graphics chip and occur most frequently on startup. You sometimes need to restart the machine by hand for hours so a script which allowed the machine to boot, pause and then restart automatically would be really useful.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

David

We have recently created AppleScript tutorials and also collected as many AppleScript references as we could find. To many to post here so look at:
