This repository serves as a collection/library of personal applescripts. In creating this library, I wanted to make these scripts universal rather than application specific, however many of them are specific to my needs.
- Application Services
- Display Settings
- File and Folder Actions
- Location Helper Scripts
- Markdown Tools
- Notational Velocity
- Pandoc and Textutils
- Sound Scripts
- Temperature Conversion
- Time and Date
- Caffeine App (or here) - a menu bar application that prevents your monitor from sleeping. (If you don't want an extra application in your menubar, here is a different way, and if you're on 10.8+ you can go ahead and use this command. Both work via
do shell script.)
- Location Helper - use core location in applescripts.
- Twitter Scripter - interact with twitter via applescript.
- Pandoc and Textutil - document conversion via the command line.
Youtube-Post.scptrequires GoogleCL, which is also useful for blogger, google calendar, and contacts
- GoogleCL is sadly defunct. Any associated scripts remain for posterity.
- I have also created a few Gists for more specific applescript/bash related tasks.
- Also, check out my Alfred Workflows, including dued, which may be my favorite creation.
Other Applescript Resources/Libraries
A non-exhaustive list of interesting Applescript resources on Github:

- not explicitly applescript related, but searching for "Applescript" provides some useful results
