Techtonic 56: Bringing the Power of Applescript to Mortals

In this week’s episode, Joshua is joined by our special guest, David Sparks, to discuss macOS and iOS automation using the apps Hazel and Workflow.

Since this was WWDC week and I was at the beach with my family, we recorded this episode a week in advance. And, as it turns out, I came down with the flu and allergy problems before we recorded, so Joshua took over things.

The WWDC announcements for macOS and iOS are exciting, but Apple didn’t offer new automation solutions. Going forward, apps like Hazel and Workflow are still very relevant. If you want to take a deep dive into them, check out Sparks’ field guides, some of the best.
