MacScripter — a Web site designed to show people how to use AppleScript, Apple’s scripting language and working towards scripts people will perceive as useful — is working to build up its ScriptBuilders area, an archive of AppleScript scripts.
“We are aggressively pushing ScriptBuilders to become a data-warehouse for scripts of all genre,” Principle Administrator Ray Barber said. “While we currently have 423 to date, we feel this needs to grow significantly. If we are to be successful with ScriptBuilders, we will need everyone’s help in making it what it needs to be. AppleScripters, make ScriptBuilders successful by submitting your scripts.”
Macscripter.net is committed to the evangelism of Applescript and, more especially, its success in Mac OS X, he added. The ScriptBuilders section is an effort to promote everyone’s hard work and provide much deserved exposure, according to Barber.
“While we promote open source scripting, all shareware scripts are certainly welcome, too.,” he said. “We post the author’s e-mail, Web address and also provide a detailed description of what his/her script does.”
There are three methods for getting scripts to them: an upload page, a Hotline server (hotline.macscripter.net), or e-mail to Rob Jorgensen. Just be sure to include a complete description of your work so the MacScripters can properly describe it. Or you can utilize their ScriptBuilder SP to format it prior to uploading.
