automation software vs scripting support
I am amazed on how much wizardry our forum members can achieve with tools like keyboard maestro (especially @Will). Before finding the forum i didn't know such tools exist. The helper scripts can work system wide and applied on just any software. Compared to this when i write a plug in for an application it only works in this specific tool.
I wonder what are the limitations of this approach? One limitation, i suppose, is that keyboard maestro cannot change how things look like in an app, for example modify themes or syntax highlighting or displays on hover. But as far as text editing goes, anything is possible? What do you hope to achieve with scripting support?
I am still hesitating in learning to use automation tools and prefer to do what i am already familiar with. But in the end i am locked into a Software.
