Auto Launch Script Windows/Mac/iOS
« on: August 25, 2011, 09:39:32 PM »
For my iCloud I need to make it so when a file is added to the iTunes folder or iTunes opens that the computer runs a script. I know for mac I can use Automater folder actions, but the rest I don't know how to do. I need someone who knows how to do it or else I'm just going to have to make the script run every 30 minutes. Thanks.

A bit late into this.  I already have code for this sort of thing (along with a way of installing ipa as of recent, better photo backup, and basically icloud stuffz)...  I started a while back, as a test thing.

I can program for mac/linux and test for windows.

For Mac you can use APPLESCRIPT folder actions…

Can Applescript scripts be triggered when opening an app? Because Automater is easier.

Automator may be easier, but AppleScript is more versatile… You can even combine them… The run script Automator action…
