OS X Tip of the Day: Twitterific and QuickSilver

Posted Mon 12 January 2009 20:54 under category tips

There are a few tips online as to how to use Twitter and QuickSilver together, but they're lame. Particularly because they send your Twitter password over a nice non-https connection. And because I don't like to have to choose between getting prompted to grant access to my Twitter password every time I post from QuickSilver and granting all AppleScripts free access to my Twitter password. So I decided to leverage Twitterific's AppleScript support and write the following quick AppleScript:

using terms from application "Quicksilver"
    on process text t
        tell application "Twitterrific" to post update t
    end process text
end using terms from

Just drop it in ~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver/Actions and restart QuickSilver. VoilĂ !
