Magic Script Creator lets you build custom, fully functional AppleScripts by answering a few simple questions.

Have you ever wanted to study AppleScript, but learn better by tinkering? Do you know some AppleScript, but would like to lean about incorporating POSIX paths and UNIX command lines tools within your script? Part development tool, part learning tool, Magic Script Creator is the answer!

There is no need to have any knowledge of AppleScript to start with. Magic Script Creator has 21 different examples than can be configured hundreds of different ways! All you have to do is answer some questions about each example, and Magic Script Creator will do the rest. It will create a fully functional AppleScript based on the parameters you answered. Most of the examples will involve using UNIX command line tools buried deep in Mac OS X, and Magic Script Creator will automatically resolve AppleScript paths with POSIX paths. It will even name your script based on the specific parameters that you answered!
