Maintain1

8.7
01 November 2007

Performs prebinding, maintenance routines and much more.

Overview

Maintain1 is an AppleScript Studio Application. The main purpose of this program is to provide an interface to run shell scripts in the terminal and to be able to edit any shell script.

The shell scripts are linked in the program by the name and location of the script. What this means is that you can edit any of the scripts and have them do what you want them to do. Shell scripts are plain text files. The scripts are not compiled into the program and can be changed. My adhd is starting to show again.

The little program started out with about 3 or 4 buttons and now we are close to 100 buttons. The scripts that the buttons control do several different things. When including local and remote operations there are close to 250 things that maintain1 can do.

Yes the program is still freeware but donations are welcome.

I do like this script GUI and constantly come back to it. However I prefer macaroni for the basic cron jobs as it automates the process, the script would really rock if has some simple automation of some of the tasks. I wonder if ther is any simple way of linking macaroni and maintain

I like this because in some ways because it is applescript studio and its GUI has always been quite basic. I also like the fact you can run scripts at the same time, maybe OnyX does the same things and with a pretty pretty GUI but this somehow brings a semi geek like me closer to what really is going on without me having to learn it all and OnyX only does one thing at a time. I often recommend this utility on my web site and i hope it continues to be developed

Perhaps adding the addendum of "(Intel)" on the side of the main software listing (on the MacUpdate main page) would help clarify that MOST Mac users should not bother with the direct download provided...

Dose anyone know what pre-binding actualy does. I've done this twice and it screwed my computer both times. All I got on restarting was a blank desktop and the Spotlight icon in the top right corner and nothing else. It seemed to load everything up until that point and then just sit there. ????

DEVELOPER - look at the system requirements listed on MacUpdate. It says 10.3 and above - that's Panther - Tiger is 10.4 and above. Therein lies the confusion. Write to MacUpdate to get that fixed. (8/1/2005, Version: 7.4_PRO)

This should run on 10.3 and above. I don't have 10.3 to do a full test.

These are not bugs in this release. This release will only run on tiger and above.The "T" in the version does not mean Tiger Direct. lol. Sorry, I do have to laugh at tiger direct. I guess it is cheap advertising. I have left the preTiger version up. The only difference is the toolbar.

Still too many bugs, especially under 10.3.8. Example would be the Force Delete Trash option - it does not work. Trash still remains full even after system reboot. Dock Floater option cannot be disable or Quit and now appears as a permanent big blue Aqua button on the Desktop. Developer does not respond to his/her e-mail. So to correct this last issue I would have to reload base OSX from CD as an Archive Install. Not impressed. Not worth the four star reviews. Use Onyx, Macaroni or TinkerTool - far better and more predictable results!

NO. You are wrong.I did respond to you. There are 3 options. disable , enable and quit. It does work. I made this program so you can edit any shell script. If you do not like the way a shell script works then change it. That is the idea. The program is made so that people can modify the shell scripts.
