Advanced Tools and Scripting Resources

A tremendous amount of information about AppleScript is available on Apple’s Web site. A good starting point for general information about AppleScript is the URL http://www.apple.com/applescript. For AppleScript information specific to Mac OS X, start at the URL http://www.apple.com/applescript/macosx. This page also provides downloadable AppleScripts that are both intrinsically useful and also great references for writing your own AppleScripts.

One of the most interesting and useful AppleScript-related applications is ScriptMenu, a small plug-in for the Aqua menu system. Download it for free from Apple and drag it into your menu bar to install it. ScriptMenu is available from Apple’s Web site at the URL http://www.apple.com/applescript/macosx/ script_menu/. Click on the ScriptMenu icon to display a drop-down menu of prepackaged AppleScripts. Add your own AppleScripts to its menu by putting them in the Library/Scripts directory that ScriptMenu creates when you install it.
