Script Editor battle
Here’s a short video showing some of the differences between Apple’s own Script Editor and my DisplayDroid.
If you haven’t got 5 minutes, the highlights include:
DisplayDroid shows result of each line of the script
DisplayDroid offers more informative error messages
DisplayDroid allows you to set a breakpoint on any line in your script
DisplayDroid lets you step through the script line by line
To be fair, Script Editor has some strengths that DD doesn’t (notably, Events and the Dictionary viewer); I’m planning a more powerful script editor app further down the line that will add those, but first I want to improve the error handling and pre-compiler routines I’ve started to build into DD.
There should be plenty of updates to DD over the coming weeks that offer a lot of improvements in those areas.
Looks very nice. Yes, the Script Editor is always frustrating to use. Script Debugger is so much nicer. But I need script debugging only every couple of months. So I’ll give your new app a try. With the name I thought that it had something to do with Android.
