OnMyCommandCM Updated With AppleScript Support

Abracode, Inc. has released an update for OnMyCommandCM, bringing it to version 1.6. OnMyCommandCM is a plug-in designed for contextual command line execution. The update features AppleScript support and bug fixes. According to Abracode:

OnMyCommandCM 1.6 is a new version of contextual menu command line instruction executor. UNIX command may take a clicked object path as a parameter so you may perform an action on file or folder. A command can be executed in Terminal.app or silently. But the best part is that users build their own commands, their own Contextual Menu Items.

What is new in version 1.6:

  • CommandDroplet - small application executing OMC commands. You can create standalone applets using the same command description format
  • Direct AppleScript support. You can put AppleScript code into command description, no need to go through osascript call
  • Output window to see the result of command execution. In many cases it eliminates the need to send the command to terminal
  • An option to paste clipboard content after command execution. Most useful in text context with pbcopy or AppleScriptis set the clipboard to...
  • Bug fixes. Most important fix involves a long standing bug with popen execution mode aborting some commands. Now you should be able to execute almost anything in popen mode
  • Knut Lorenzenis OMCEdit is now included with the main OnMyCommandCM distribution
  • Discussion forums. Some users expressed interest in having a place to discuss command descriptions
  • BlackTreeis QuickSilver now supports OMC commands as actions. You can download the plug-in for QuickSilver
  • Online command collection contains about 300 commands

You can find more information about the OnMyCommandCM update at the Contextual Menu Workshop Web site. OnMyCommandCM 1.6 is available as freeware.
