Log to Evernote


This plug-in will log entries to Evernote. It requires Evernote be installed on the local machine. By Kevin van Haaren.

Fix Finder Selection Bug


The Finder’s AppleScript support has a bug such that it will sometimes return the incorrect result for the selection, which can be catastrophic if you then proceed to act on the wrong files. This action corrects the Finder’s behaviour in this case, so you should use it before referencing the Finder’s selection, either via AppleScript, or equivalently using the Finder Selection collection in the For Each action.

Set Finder Label


This plug-in will set the Finder label of a file.

Get Finder Path


This plug-in from Ian Kirkland will get various Finder paths (the front window, insertion point or first entry in the selection) in a variety of styles (HFS or POSIX, quoted or unquoted).

Send to IFTTT


This plug-in from Jamie Shaw takes the values of five fields, bundles some of them up in JSON and submits them to IFTTT’s URL. If desired, the PLIST file has space for a default value for the “key” field, saving time having to enter it every time the action is used the Keyboard Maestro Editor.

Unminimize All Windows


The plug-in will unminimize the all the windows in the front application (for most applications anyway).
