8. Automator and AppleScript > Building Your Own Workflow

Building Your Own Workflow

You could spend all day playing with the workflows Apple gives you, making minor tweaks and seeing how they affect the workflow’s progress. You could even download more preassembled workflows from www.automatorworld.com/category/workflows/, if you were so inclined.

Still, those options don’t give you the kind of hands-on experience you need if you ever want to automate your Mac on your own.

That’s why the following pages walk you through building three different Automator actions from scratch. Along the way, you’ll learn several tricks that you’ll find handy when you start building your own workflows.

Tip

If you’re feeling lazy, you can download the completed workflow projects from this book’s “Missing CD” page at www.missingmanuals.com.
