Save Applescript

Please consider signing our petition to save Applescript.

In an article posted here, reports are coming in that Apple may consider removing scripting technologies such as UNIX CLI (shell, python, ruby, perl), System Services, Apple Events (JavaScript, AppleScript, AppleScriptObj-C, Scripting Bridge), Automator, Apple Configurator (AppleScript, Automator), and Application scripting support in Photos, iWork, Finder, Mail, and other Apple applications from future versions of the Mac OS. Removing these vital functions of the OS will affect thousands of users who rely on scripting to automate their work on a daily basis, such as graphic designers and scientists.

I personally rely on a myriad of scripts to automate routine functions at my job as a graphic designer and would be lost without these time-saving scripts.

Only Apple can decide to make this technology stay in the operating system and I hope that you will sign and share this with anyone you know who relies on Applescript and scripting technologies on Mac OS X.
