Folder actions

·1 min

Yes it is more Mac OS X rambling. Folder action scripts are so cool. Essentially, they allow you to execute an applescript anytime something happens to a folder. For example, you can set up a script that fires when a file is added to the desktop folder. This script could move any image files to your Pictures folder automatically. Or you could create a script attached to a folder that automatically resizes to a web friendly size any images placed inside. You could then have it upload the images to your website. I can think of tons of neat things to do with this feature.
