AppleScript interface

PopClip has an AppleScript interface that allows you to control PopClip from Automator workflows and other automation software.

Overview

Properties

  • enabled: Set whether PopClip is on or off (Boolean).

Commands

  • appear: Activate PopClip now for the currently selected text in the foreground app.

Examples

To turn PopClip on or off, use the "enabled" property. For example:

applescript
tell application "PopClip" to set enabled to true          -- turn on
tell application "PopClip" to set enabled to false         -- turn off
tell application "PopClip" to set enabled to not enabled   -- toggle

To make PopClip appear for the currently selected text, use the "appear" command:

applescript
tell application "PopClip" to appear

Notes:

  • You can still trigger "appear" while PopClip is turned off.

  • When activated via AppleScript, the PopClip bar will be in keyboard mode.
