Transforming a Shell Script into an Automator Action

Transforming a Shell Script into an Automator Action

Automator is a powerful technology for building custom workflows. But sometimes you need functionality that the existing actions don’t provide—functionality that could be easily accomplished using the shell with a scripting language like Perl, Python, or Ruby. With Custom Shell Script actions, script developers can quickly turn their work into Automator actions.

  1. this Tutorial sucks big time.
    It does not work as advertised. They needed to place screen shots of the edited files so you know what the heck you are supposed to have at the end. Otherwise you look for this and that, with no idea what you are doing.
    who has the time to waste on such crap when it does not work, and you need to spend more time debugging than putting the ‘app’ together in the first place.
