Quicksilver: Revenge of the PyObjC plug-ins
Merlin Mann | Jul 22 2005
When the Tiger version of Quicksilver came out a few weeks ago, it added several important enhancements, but did cause a predictable bummer of a glitch, in that most of the “old” (pre-Tiger) plug-ins people had developed no longer worked and needed to be re-coded. QS’s developer, Alcor, picked up most of the slack immediately (yay, Alcor), spitting out a ton of updates and new plug-ins, and now ytrewq1 steps up to the plate with a few more terrific chunks of func.
The PyObjC plug-in is clearly the biggie, since—although it doesn’t appear to do much on its own—it acts a kind of functional skeleton key, affording the ground-level hooks that let QS run some very sexy plug-ins based on Python scripts (thus opening the door to more plug-ins by, say, you). Among others, these include: “Head and Tail” (view the beginning or end of a text file); “iTerm” (allows Quicksilver to interact with my favorite terminal app); and “Timer Action” (which lets you automate QS reminders or triggers to happen in n minutes or hours).
Stop by this page in the Blacktree forum to grab the updated plug-ins.
Now all I need to be truly happy is the return of the Quicksilver Command History. (*pokes ungratefully at Alcor*)
