Script Editor battle

graph2-01
Here’s a short video showing some of the differences between Apple’s own Script Editor and my DisplayDroid.

If you haven’t got 5 minutes, the highlights include:

DisplayDroid shows result of each line of the script
DisplayDroid offers more informative error messages
DisplayDroid has automatic language detection (between AppleScript and JavaScript)
DisplayDroid allows you to set a breakpoint on any line in your script
DisplayDroid lets you step through the script line by line

DisplayDroid – limited free betas available

displayDroidFlag-01


The first beta of DisplayDroid is, for a limited time, freely available to anyone interested in testing (requires Yosemite, 10.10). DisplayDroid executes an AppleScript or JavaScript whenever you connect or disconnect an external monitor, primarily with the intent of automatically setting up the environment depending on your display status. DisplayDroid includes its own script editor and a number of presets (i.e., built-in scripts) to get beginners started.
