It’s that time of the week when I get fed up with AppleScript and start thinking about switching to a different, i.e., better, language. I’m very inclined to try fulfilling my DT scripting needs with Python, but I am also open to using Ruby. I don’t know either language currently. My understanding is that neither can be used as a replacement for AppleScript in scripting an application without some additional set up work.
My question for people currently using Python or Ruby to script DT is what did you need to do to get it working?
I’m not interested in a general argument of the merits of Python vs. Ruby (I’ve found stuff online already), but if you feel one has a specific advantage when it comes to scripting DT, I’d love to hear it.
