So I have been enjoying tinkering about in AppleScript this last week or so. So much so that I decided to start my very first .git and post all the tiny plugins and scripts that I create there.
Go check out my GitHub Applescript folder. You may find something useful there 🙂
I’ve added all the scripts I’ve created so far on it. Here’s the list so far (I’ll keep updating this) ::
- Love or Learn Current Song Playing (lets you loop the current track on iTunes, and display the tabs/chords on UG)
- Make TinyURL from Clipboard
- Open Currently Playing Song in YouTube
- Play Random Song from iOS device
- Show-Hide Invisible Files in Finder
For people who are too lazy to make the applications themselves, I’ve also uploaded the applications created to the .git under each plugin. Download the .zip files, decompress them, and move them to the necessary script folders for them to work.
I come from a very musically inclined family. We do everything to music. From the very first second we open our eyes every morning (to groovy iPhone alarms) we work to music, study to music, eat/cook to music. I could go on, but I think you get the picture. Lately I realized that the first thing I do every day at work login to my MacBook, connect my iPhone, open iTunes, and then start playing my work playlist. I started to wonder whether this whole process could be made easier (yes, I’m incredibly lazy), and decided I’d try to automate the entire process.
If you want to just get at the code, and don’t much care about the thought process/learning curve, the code is at the bottom in green. Jump ahead and start coding for your particular needs.
