ScriptPal v1.1 Posted

I posted ScriptPal v1.1 on Monday. This new version can now display the contents of the user “Scripts” folder (~/Library/iTunes/Scripts/) and/or the local “Scripts” folder (/Library/iTunes/Scripts/), can add a script to an existing Workgroup via the contextual menu, and addresses a couple of minor issues.

UPDATED: Lyrics Via LyricWiki v1.1

Lyrics Via LyricWiki has been updated to v1.1. This script will use the name and artist of the single selected or playing track as the basis for a SOAP query to LyricWiki.org; fruitful results will be displayed so you can choose to apply the lyrics to the particular track.

Latest version addresses issue with properly converting high ASCII text.

ScriptPal v1.0.1 Released

Just made a couple of quick fixes to ScriptPal, now at version 1.0.1. Fixed a problem listing scripts when the “Scripts” folder has a custom icon and addressed an issue whereby the contents of application bundles with non-standard hierarchies were being displayed.

Thanks for the great feedback on ScriptPal.

ScriptPal v1.0. Released

ScriptPal floats a persistent HUD (heads-up display) palette above iTunes putting just the AppleScripts you need a mouse-click or two away.

Instead of having to click and scroll through iTunes’ Script menu over and over again for just the two or three scripts you need during a big job or for the handful of scripts you use most frequently, let ScriptPal keep your most-needed AppleScripts conveniently ready and able to be launched with a double-click…or edited in Script Editor with an option-click…or arranged into compact and reusable Workgroups…

With ScriptPal you can:

  • Have quick and easy access to the iTunes AppleScripts in the iTunes “Scripts” folder, including aliases to AppleScripts elsewhere
  • Launch AppleScripts with a double-click
  • Display only the scripts you need
  • Organize and save collections of scripts into re-loadable Workgroups
  • See a script’s System Preferences-assigned iTunes shortcut keys
  • Open and edit scripts in Script Editor
  • Reveal a script’s file and “Get Info” window in the Finder
  • Create new folders in the “Scripts” folder
  • Access a script’s “Read Me”
  • Search for a script’s entry here at dougscripts.com

ScriptPal is easy to configure and use. And it’s free!
