AppleScript authoring environment.

Overview

Script Debugger provides everything you need to quickly and easily author AppleScripts that work. No other scripting tool can match Script Debugger's capabilities for creating, editing and debugging AppleScripts. Its sophisticated Dictionary browser provides far more information than any other tool can and eliminates guesswork and needless experimentation. Simply put, Script Debugger makes AppleScript easy.

What's new in Script Debugger

Version 7.0.10:
  • Corrected a problem where scripts created under Mojave with a description cannot be saved. See this forum post for more information
  • Fixed regression that prevented production of Sparkle updates of Enhanced Applets
  • Fixed issue where Script Debugger’s Spotlight import filter was leading to .applescript files not being indexed
  • The Clippings menu now reads property-list-format .textClipping files
  • Corrected a bug where bulk changes made to handler parameter variables were not displayed correctly in the debugger. NOTEFor this change to take effect, scripts must be recompiled
  • Fixed issue where command-. would attempt to call completion rather than stopping a script when a script view had focus

Truly a must-have tool for Applescript Professionals and for serious hobbyists. I was not delighted with the oddball nature of Applescript when it debuted in 1993 or with the amateurish tools available for working with it. Fortunately Script Debugger v1.0 came out in 1995, I bought a copy, and I've been happily upgrading for 17 years now. Script Debugger makes discovering how scriptable applications work not just possible but relatively easy with its searchable dictionary, object-model, and explorer-view. Its library attachment mechanism makes reusing code very simple and streamlined. Version 5 now supports regular-expression-based search/replace and has many other enhancements. As usual I'm really pleased with the upgrade.

Debugging, Application explorer, Dictionary viewer, Code clippings, ASObjC integration, ’Open Quickly’…and a long list of other features that offer relief to pretty much all of AppleScript’s major headaches. I can’t tell you whether you’ll get a good return on your $99 because it depends entirely on how much scripting you do and how much time and effort you want to invest in doing more AppleScripting. I can tell you based on my own experience that if you are a habitual scripter, you’re going to find this app an utterly transformative piece of software so long as you’re willing to put in the time as well as the money to learn how best to exploit it.

I started to play around with Alfred 2 and AppleScripts. The OSX Editor is OK but it is outdated. Then I found Script Debugger. The price is not attractive but the 20 days trial was a nice deal. After using it for two days, in several scripts, I bought it. There are a lot of good things about it but the tabbed interface, the timer (so you can easily check which procedure is faster), the bookmark (adding —>> at the beginning of a comment), the ways results are displayed (even for every variable) and the interactive dictionary are great and very useful features that I can’t live without anymore. If you spend some time writing scripts give this application a try, a 20 days trial, and maybe you will find the fresh air AppleSctipt Editor is missing for so long...

I just started the 20 day trial period Monday of this week, March 21, 2016, (v5.0.10 [685]). Although this post is nearly 3-years old, I couldn’t agree more! This is a great tool for anyone who spends any amount of time with AppleScripts. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
