    The following Applescript example works fine with Fetch 5.7.7 but not with 5.8b13

    With 5.8.b13 AppleScript reports "Syntax Error / Expected end of line but found class name.

    tell application "Fetch"
    store alias "Macintosh HD:[pathname]:filename.html" host "XX.XXX.XXX.XXXX" user "XXX" password "XXXXX" path "/Library/WebServer/[pathname]/filename.html" with sftp
    end tell

    Hi,

    Fetch 5.8 does not have AppleScript support. That is a feature that I hope to restore, but it isn't there now.

    Thanks,

    Bummer: Thanks for the heads-up on that. Loving 5.8 so far for speed improvement. AppleScript/5.7.7 continues to work on Mojave and I have no plans to to go to Catalina in the near future so I'm good for now.

    Can I just re-name 5.7.7 application and use the new name for the AppleScript "Tell application "New Name" of my workflow while using 5.8 for the rest of my tasks? Or am I courting problems with that idea?

    Hi,

    According to this post it's possible to specify the path of the application you want to open:
