Pashua ist a tool for creating native Aqua dialog windows for Perl, PHP, Tcl, Groovy, Python, AppleScript, Ruby, Rexx and shell scripts.

The GUI elements which can be used include text input fields (single-line and multi-line), checkboxes, radiobuttons, combo boxes, popup menus, open panels or buttons, images and more. Values entered in the dialog are processed and returned to the calling script.
What's New
Version 0.9.5:
  • Removed legacy code and deprecated API usages, which is why Pashua requires OS X 10.6 or later.
  • The "image" element respects the Exif orientation tag when displaying photos.
  • The drag cursor (for "openbrowser" and "savebrowser" elements) is no longer the "copy" cursor, but the "link", which is more appropriate.
  • Retina icons in the UI. (Actually this only applies to the "clear" button in "openbrowser" and "savebrowser" elements.)
  • The "clear" button in "openbrowser" and "savebrowser" elements is re-displayed when an item is dragged onto the element after the element was cleared.
  • The window position can be restored upon next launch (on a per-application basis). See "autosavekey" in documentation.
  • The example code for all languages uses UTF-8 as encoding. Using an encoding other than UTF-8 is deprecated, and support for setting the encoding will be removed in a future version.
  • Fixed the Tcl example.
  • Updated and modernized documentation.

I'll say a few words about this most excellent program that others, including the author, hasn't said, at least on this page.

This program works by reading a simple text file which you the user (programmer) set up. Thus, it can be used by _any_ language that can read and write text files, which is pretty much any language that you can think of. (The author does mention this in the documentation.) That means not just script languages but any language. I use it from Ada--there is no reason that you can't use it from your favorite language(s).

It's actually pretty amazing to see a nice Cocoa interface appear for your "command line interface" language with just a little effort. No, you can't write arbitrary GUI programs, but it will get you a lot of GUI for not much effort. This program has been around for a few years (most of OS X's life) but the author is supportive and really, there's not really much need to release frequent updates as "it just works." Yes, it is similar in ways to Cocoa Dialog but still has features that the others don't.

Hmm.. I've been wanting to play around with PHP from the cli, this seems very interesting.

I love it. It gives me a lot more flexibility with my Perl code because I do not know a lick of Aqua GUI programming.

This is a neat tool for working with perl. It allows you to easily create dialog windows and then you can have the data returned. It is fairly easy to use and adds a simple, but useful GUI. While the features are fairly limited, it adds a nice touch to perl development on Mac OS X.
