bBox FileMaker plug-in for AppleScript, shell, grep, etc.

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

Finally got a new version of my FileMaker plug-in going with a feature that I’ve been waiting for a long time — the ability to pass parameters to AppleScript without having to resort passing data through FileMaker globals or other craziness. The best place to find it right now is:

Since it’s already described there I won’t be going into great detail about it. But I do plan on posting some comments on how to make good (or unexpected) use of it .

Here’s my first easter-egg. In the shell section of the demo file, I’ve put in some of the Safari preference snippets that I mentioned inĀ Hidden preferences, files, and URLs in Safari. Eventually I may get them all in.
