User:Sardisson/JavaScript-AppleScript communication

From Camino Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There are two principal classes of tasks that JavaScript<->AppleScript communication facilitate (and which cannot be accomplished by either AppleScript or JavaScript/bookmarklets on their own):

  • Tasks requiring access to the page source (or DOM source)
    which is currently not possible with AppleScript
  • Combining a series of steps into a single, simple task
    perhaps to replicate a Gecko-y Firefox feature in Camino


  • Microformat detection and handling
  • Replace haxies that add toolbar buttons (or custom builds) for popular add-ons (e.g. Ma.gnolia or integration)
