I made an Applescript that does what I need it to, but it keeps growing. I know I should put it into Xcode and make a GUI for it (I did this ~5 years ago with another one), but I can't quite figure out the basic layout. Does anyone know of a basic example app in Xcode 7 using Applescript, that would give me a starting point to go from? Something like, click a button and a "Hello World" dialog pops up?
Side question, would it be better to learn Cocoa or Swift instead of using Applescript? Not currently interested in iOS programming.
Ok, I have made a simple Xcode Project for you. When a button on the interface builder is clicked, it will display a dialog saying "hello"
If you are new to Cocoa AppleScript, be warned! There is so much more AppleScript Codes than you thought there was in Script Editor.
In case the Mediafire link goes down, here are the contents of the AppleScript that is within an Xcode project.
