Lauch App Scripts

Automated creation of Application launching scripts for use with your favorite keyboard shortcut tool. This was written as a replacement for my Quicksilver addiction after upgrading to Snow Leopard.

The Rakefile was derived from Grant Hollingworth's command-number-tab.


  1. Change the APPLICATIONS constant at the top of the Rakefile
  2. Compile and install the AppleScripts with rake install. The scripts will be installed under ~/Library/Scripts/Launch
  3. Set up keyboard shortcuts with FastScripts (or Butler or whatever)
