What's AppleScript?

AppleScript is a simple Macintosh-only programming language that can control and automate actions on your Mac. AppleScript is already available on your computer as part of the macOS and many popular applications can be automated using AppleScript scripts. Scripts written for Apple's Music, TV and iTunes apps can manage files and track information, create playlists, interact with other applications, perform innovative tasks, and handle many kinds of chores with accuracy and precision which otherwise would be repetitive, laborious, and/or time-consuming.
