So I finally figured out how to write AppleScripts that hook directly into Quicksilver’s “text clipping” interface. For the longest time I’ve wanted to be able to set away messages from Quicksilver… and now I can:
using terms from application "Quicksilver" on process text ThisClipping tell application "Adium" set my status message to ThisClipping set my status type to away end tell end process text end using terms from
It may not look like much, but I’m a happy boy. Put that into an AppleScript using Script Editor and save it to
~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver/Actions. Restart Quicksilver, and you’ll be able to set any text you type in Quicksilver after the “.” command as your Adium away message.
on process text terms has lots of other uses too. I’m sure I’ll come up with more.
