The AppleMods Loader system is a simple yet capable module loading system for the AppleScript language. It consists of the following:

  • The AppleScript-based Loader module provides a number of commands and objects used to load modules into a script.
  • The AppleModsTools scripting addition is used to embed a copy of the Loader module in a script.
  • A number of ready-to-use modules can be used for common tasks such as performing math calculations and manipulating lists.

Loader supports Mac OS X 10.4 and later (Mac OS X 10.5+ recommended).

In addition to loading existing AppleMods modules, scripters can use Loader to load their own modules. Any compiled .scpt or .scptd file can be used; the only requirements are that the file’s name follows AppleMods naming conventions and is placed in a folder that is accessible to Loader.
