The experience of scripting: a movie

I’ve made a video showing something of what it feels like to script a Mac application using Ruby. It also explains the basics of rb-appscript, one of the two main Ruby frameworks.

I made it after a burst of frustration with how often my scripting runs into wholly unnecessary snags. What I wish I knew is how many people who would love to script iTunes or Mail or whatever won’t because app developers make it too hard.

Perhaps I’ve stumbled into more snags than a normal human would (being a tester curses you that way). Or perhaps I overreact. Both seem to happen a lot. If you have experience with AppleScript or Ruby scripting, and you think so, let me know in comments or mail.

The video is 13 minutes long.
