Running Fetch from within a script (2 posts)

    How do I run Fetch from within a script. I want to transfer a textile to my website and I would like to do this with a script that runs once a day.

    I haven't been able to find an answer on Google.

    Thanks you.

    The easiest way to write an AppleScript for Fetch is to:

    1) Open Script Editor
    2) Click the Record button
    3) Perform the task manually in Fetch (e.g. upload a file)
    4) Click the Stop button in Script Editor

    That will record a script that performs the task you just performed manually. You can tweak that script as needed.

    The second easiest way is to open Automator and build an Automator workflow out of Fetch Automator actions.
