What is FastScripts for Mac

FastScripts is a utility for quickly and elegantly executing AppleScript and shell scripts from within any application. FastScripts is a super-charged replacement for the Apple "Script Menu" menu extra. In addition to the functionality provided by Apple's Script Menu utility, FastScripts offers a number of compelling improvements:

  • User-definable keyboard shortcuts for any scripts in the menu
  • "SmartSwitching" avoids unnecessary context switches
  • Elegant Application-Specific scripts support
  • Convenient shortcuts for editing and revealing scripts
  • Fast!

I've been a full-time daily user of FastScripts since 2005 and could not imagine being without it. Using it extensively with Photoshop and InDesign. If you depend on AppleScripts and shell scripts heavily like I do, you'll appreciate the time saved.

Being able to do so much from the keyboard makes my work more enjoyable. With FastScripts it begins to seem like a cross between a game and playing music.

Only 3 Reviews – tsk, tsk...

Having used just about every automation utility for the Mac that's come out since 1984 and having used AppleScript extensively since 1996 I wasn't very impressed when FastScripts debuted in 2003. Just another AppleScript menu...

Then I used it for a couple of days.

Then I bought a copy.

Since then I've considered FastScripts to be an indispensable addition to any Mac I use.

I've used it alongside QuicKeys, iKey, and now Keyboard Maestro – because of the smooth way it handles keyboard shortcuts, showing scripts in the Finder, and Editing Scripts.

The developer is a former Apple Engineer and has been very responsive to feedback for over a decade now.

FastScripts has provided as much value for money as any app I've ever bought.

I can't function on a new system until I get FastScripts installed and setup. It's invaluable to my workflow.

I just love this. I know I'd miss it already if it wasn't there.

FastScripts has already overcome the features, implementation and execution speed of Apple's script menu. The developer is very responsive to feedback and has demonstrated his desire to improve FastScripts with timely updates and new features. I urge everyone who finds this software useful to support its continued development by paying the more than reasonable registration fee.
