A high-level way to execute AppleScript code through NodeJS and retrieve
module is just a simple wrapper around the OS X
AppleScripts are the only way to communicate and interact with certain external OS X processes, for example iTunes.
yarn add applescript-promise
node-applescript-promise module provides
to easily execute AppleScript commands and buffer the output into a calback.
;// Very basic AppleScript command. Returns the song name of each// currently selected track in iTunes as an 'Array' of 'String's.const script = 'tell application "iTunes" to get name of selection';applescript
execFile works the exact same way, except you pass the path of the AppleScript
*.applescript) file as the first argument instead of the command itself, and you
may pass an optional
Array of strings as a second argument to send to the applescript file.
