Published: Mar 2, 2024

FastScripts is a utility for quickly and elegantly executing AppleScript and shell scripts from within any application. FastScripts is a super-charged replacement for the Apple “Script Menu” menu extra. In addition to the functionality provided by Apple’s Script Menu utility, FastScripts offers a number of compelling improvements:

All new features in version 3:
ScriptLight: Search Your Scripts
Start typing to see a summary of matchings scripts. Select the one you want, or just press return to run the top result.

Track Your Tasks
Active scripts are listed in the script menu, so you can monitor their progress, or end them early if they’ve run amok.

Massively Parallel Productivity
Scripts get their own own high-performance execution process, so you won’t get stuck waiting for long tasks before starting another.

Incremental Improvements
Little things that add up: keyboard shortcut conflict detection, improved message panels, and support for symbolic links!
Time-honored core features:

Powerful Keyboard Shortcuts
Global or application-specific control at the tip of your fingers. You’ll spend less time mousing and more time doing.Smart Context Switching
