DropScript for Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)

dropscript.pngAnyone remember and love the old DropScript app by Wilfredo Sánchez?

Well, I found the source code, but it wouldn't compile on my machine, so I played around with it for awhile and got it to work under Mountain Lion.

At this point I'll note that I am *not* a software developer or Obj. C programmer, and only got it to work because I've hung around the platform long enough to know the terms and am able to use Google. There might be stupid stuff in the binary and I wouldn't know it (e.g. artificially limiting it to certain OSes or architectures -- though I did check the source code for URLs, email and IP addresses making sure it isn't overtly doing anything dangerous...).

Anyway, if you're interested in a binary, leave a comment and I'll see if I can help you.

In the meantime, for those who got DropConvert and DropResize scripts from me ages ago that have now broke under Mountain Lion, try these. ;)

Could you please lend me your binary, or the modified source code you used to compile it? Thanks!

Deepest apologies Aaron, I had no idea people were posting comments, they were sitting in the web interface and it wasn't notifying me! Anyway, here you go.

By the way, thanks so much for this!

Bryan, I took your version and elaborated on it: github.com/RJVB/DropScript . I thought I'd written to you about this before, but can't seem to find a trace ...

Anyway, could you get in touch with me via MP? My modifications make this little tool of interest for the KDE build system on OS X, but that would require adding some kind of license info, which I can't do without checking with the other authors.

What's MP?

Oops, that's French for PM ... private message aka email :)

Does anyone read this thing?
