I ran across scripting for the Mac OSX awhile ago. I finally decided to take a look at it when I decided to play around with Adium’s open source code. The most dominant prescene I observed was Applescript. Applescript is nice and all, but Python is nicer. Scripting OSX applications with Python has been around for a bit. Using the easy to install appscript, scripting can be leveraged by the power of Python and Ruby.
