AppleScript is a powerful scripting language that allows to directly control scriptable applications and some parts of macOS. The language itself can be a little bit frustrating for those who are not familiar with natural language programming paradigm. For example, with AppleScript, you can
"Preview" to quit or ask someone to
print pages 1 thru 5 of document 2.
But my goal is not to promote or demote AppleScript. Instead, I wish to share a little script that I’ve fetched while experimenting with OmniFocus 2. I hate to manually capture issues that I care about, so I started to work on a script that takes URL from an active tab in Safari and sends it to OmniFocus into the right project with useful title and body.
For example, I want d12frosted/flyspell-correct#30 to go into the
flyspell-correct project with title and description taken from that issue.
