Ask TUAW: AppleScripting coolness
Tuesday Wednesday, which means it's time for Ask TUAW Video Edition. We've gotten great comments and questions coming in, and we have been trying to get to them all. Some of them are just too hard to show in a video format such as Ask TUAW, so today I have decided to do a little AppleScript "tutorial."
Here are 4 scripts that I use:
- iTunes - this script will automatically play/pause my music
- I'm back - will automatically make Adium go available, and start my music
- Mail Announce - will announce who incoming mail is from (works with mail.app only)
- Tell me a joke - tells a random joke
You can download the scripts here. Updated the download link at 5:30pm EST
As always leave us comments below or email us here.
