Sparked by a security discussion at work…
… If I had to automate a Mac based solely on what Apple provide, how would I
- Kick off automation with a hot key combo?
- Kick off automation with a short phrase?
- Act on selected text?
I think I’d be down to AppleScript or JXA. It’s the triggering that I wonder about.
Frankly, I don’t think this is going to happen. What is more likely is to be restricted to what’s in the Mac App Store - which rules out eg Keyboard Maestro, Hazel, BetterTouchTool. (And Script Debugger, Audio Hijack, and possibly Python.)
