ShellShell 1.1.0 reviewDownload
As everyone knows, lurking underneath the fancy Aqua interface of Mac OS X is a nifty UNIX system.
As everyone knows, lurking underneath the fancy Aqua interface of Mac OS X is a nifty UNIX system. By using the Terminal application, you can open a user shell, "look behind the curtain," and execute UNIX commands.
But unless you've got some UNIX experience, using the shell commandline interface can be intimidating.
Wouldn't it be nice if you had a nice "Aquatic" interface to the shell? ShellShell is a scriptable application that can do just this - provide a friendly OS X user interface to any UNIX command.
I've written a few scripts for some common commands, but I'm depending on the community to come up with more (and find ones that the current scripting language can't handle).
The scripting language is actually fairly powerful. Some UI elements can have "slave" elements, you can define arbitrary mutually exclusive groups, and even use PopUp menus.
Added ability to autorun a script.
Documented how to get a script to launch ShellShell.
