Sandbox 1.2.2 reviewDownload
Sandbox is built entirely in AppleScript Studio, much to the chagrin of real programmers everywhere.
Sandbox is built entirely in AppleScript Studio, much to the chagrin of real programmers everywhere. This doesn't mean we've got nothing but three-button dialog boxes and boring input fields, though.
A peek into the user interface reveals a bevy of Shiny Things™ that make Sandbox far more pleasurable to use than display dialog: An organized, full-featured GUI with lots of pretty checkboxes; A software update system so you never have to come back to this page to check for updates (but you're welcome to anyway); And a simple, easy-to-use panel for enabling and disabling ACL functionality. Sandbox is a tool for server admins and engineers, and power users—generally intended for those who have at least the fundamentals of ACLs under their belts, and not your typical home user.
Apple's File Services Administration documentation is a good place to start to gain an understanding of how the system works. (We've got a small section on this in our help, but it could use some more great links. If you've written an article on Tiger's ACL model, we'd love to include it in our documentation!)
Mac OS X 10.4.1 or later (Sandbox has not been tested under 10.4.0);
The BSD subsystem (part of a standard install);
