active_mac

DESCRIPTION:

Provides an ORM interface to the data of any AppleScript-enabled application. Useful for querying and scripting any Mac application in an intuitive way - you can pretend your iTunes library is a relational database, for instance.

INSTALL:

sudo gem install active_mac --source "http://gemcutter.org"

USE:

require 'active_mac'
app("iTunes").selection.each { |track| track.name = track.name.titleize }
app("iTunes").play

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Mac OS X

  • rb-appscript

TODO:

  • actually implementing searching, e.g. app(“iTunes”).tracks.find_all_by_artist(“The Beatles”)

  • inheriting all possible properties and methods from the AppleScript reference
