In praise of OF AppleScript

I’m just writing to thank Omni for building such excellent AppleScript support.

For a start, it’s fast. I have also been scripting Mail, where even getting the text of one message takes up to ten seconds, but the equivalent function in OmniFocus is quick.

Secondly there’s a sane Rich Text system, that exposes all the text attributes.

Above all, everything I want to use is exposed. Plenty of apps have some AppleScript support but it doesn’t extend far enough, causing you to run into limitations. Not so here!

Thanks Omni :)
