Extending AppleScript with Scripting Additions

  • Hamish Sanderson

Abstract

Although AppleScript is extremely powerful in its ability to control any scriptable application, the language itself comes with only a limited number of features built into it. Fortunately, there are several ways to add extra functionality that your scripts can take advantage of: scripting additions, scriptable faceless background applications, and script libraries. Script libraries have already been explained in Chapter 19, so we won’t cover them again here. Instead, this chapter concentrates on the two most popular options, scripting additions and scriptable faceless background applications.
