Just drag and drop the app_name.app bundle created in Automator onto the Dock where you want it.

I'm all for people learning how to script things, but for day to day use and flexibility, reimplementing parts of Hazel by NoodleSoft is less powerful and efficient for a general purpose solution. Again, kudos to Froggard and Inspired Life for the excellent answer and the practical question.

I would create one script that monitors both folders. My language of choice for this is Python. AppleScript is not terribly well-suited to this kind of operation. The basic idea is to listen for FSEvents on the two folders in question, and when one occurs, quickly unschedule the event stream for the other folder, do some conversion and sync operation, then ...

Answer for my own question... I mistakenly changed the default application for opening folders (!) away from Finder to an application of my own creation. I didn't know this was even possible! Needless to say this had some weird side effects, like the problem I originally described. But I figured it out – I mucked up my system with an erroneous QuickSilver ...

You do not need a script or Automator for that. Click on the email of interest and use the shit+cmd+s That will bring up a window where you can now save that email as plain text in a location of your choice. You could set up a Rules in Mac mail to get it better organized in a single folder for example. If you want the system to find (filter) the emails ...

HTML to Markdown Brett Terpstra has written these automator services to help manipulate markdown in OSX. One of these services does convert HTML to Markdown (which answers one part of your question), and any of these services can be individually added and assigned a shortcut if you so please. I myself use Markdown to RTF to send pretty emails written in ...

Undesirable Behaviour There is no intended way to add trusted root certificates without requiring authorisation from the user or an administrator. Any method that manages to add a trusted root certificate without confirming, at some stage, the credentials of the user would be considered a serious security bug. What is the Risk? Once a root certificate is ...

Automator and AppleScript are two very different things. For Automator actions for a specific app, search for the name of the app in the Actions search bar. For AppleScript, open the Script Editor, then open the dictionary of the app by pressing ⇧⌘O and selecting the app. Apps not in the list probably don't have an AppleScript dictionary.

Apple removed "bounce" from the Mail dictionary. So "bounce eachMessage" does nothing and the only effect is the message being deleted ("delete eachMessage")

I downloaded Keyboard Maestro and was able to get what I needed by writing a macro. I have a new favorite program. I kind of wish I had tried it sooner.

You were looking in the right direction… though you cannot actually do this easily for a right click item - so long as there is a menu item in the same app, it's simple. I've only quickly tested this on Safari & TextEdit - whichever app you use must already have those 2 command options somewhere in their menu structure. System Prefs > Keyboard > ...

Apple's documentation describes how to call commands which have both direct parameters (the text) and named parameters (the using). In this case, you would do this: var ScriptEditor = Application("Script Editor"); ScriptEditor.includeStandardAdditions = true; ScriptEditor.say("Hello", {using: "Alex"})

You can do: tell application "System Events" to tell process "SystemUIServer" value of attribute "AXDescription" of menu bar items of menu bar 1 end tell To get connection status. For example: {"Wi-Fi, four of four bars, with WiFiNetworkName.", "Battery: Charged ", "Clock"} Then you can ...

I've created an AppleScript very similar to the @YoshiBotX's one, but with some improvements. The idea is to create an Automator workflow and assigning a shortcut to it using the following steps: Open Automator and create a Service; Set the input to no input, and the application to Finder.app; Drag and Drop the Run AppleScript workflow element onto the ...

From playing about with opensnoop, what seems to happen when you click "Pause" is that Photos (by way of cloudphotosd) adds something like the following two lines to a file within your photo library called private/com.apple.cloudphotosd/CloudSync.noindex/State.plist <key>pausedUntilDate</key> <date>2015-04-30T23:57:01Z</date> ...

Hey man I found this thread after searching how to do this exact thing. I figured it out and thought I'd post it here for any who might be having the same trouble. I am running 10.10.2 btw. The solution is to have the service receiving 'no input'. That way you can just hit the shortcut and it won't be waiting for something to process, which was causing it ...

You would use something called Folder Action. Right click on the Folder you want to monitor and select Folder action set up. In the new window choose folder action workflow, and attach it. Now select it and choose edit workflow, which will open Automator. Here you do as shown below, while you can choose when it happens and where to save a copy.
