Platypus is a developer tool for creating application wrappers around scripts. In other words, it creates Mac OS X applications that execute a script which is bundled with the application. Command line scripts can thus be run transparently from the graphical window environment, integrating seamlessly with the user interface.

Here are some of the features Platypus has to offer:

  • Supports shell scripts, Perl, Python, PHP, Ruby, Expect, Tcl, AppleScript
  • Supports arbitrary interpreter -- thus support for any script type
  • Executing scripts with root privileges via Apple's Security Framework more...
