scripts 101

Once you’ve downloaded a script and placed it in the appropriate place in the library, how do you trigger it from within Eaglefiler? (And I assume the compiled version is what one should put there.)

The compiled scripts don’t go in the EagleFiler library. Rather, you should put them in the folder:

/Users/<username>/Library/Scripts/Applications/EagleFiler/

You can use AppleScript Editor (AppleScript Utility prior to Mac OS X 10.6) to enable Mac OS X’s built-in scripts menu. When you’re in EagleFiler, the scripts menu (which appears near the menu bar clock) will show all of the EagleFiler scripts. FastScripts is a great third-party utility that provides a similar menu with keyboard shortcuts and other features.

I had it in the right place … now I see how to do something with it.
