Goodbye AppleScript, Hello JSTalk

@ccgus just antiquated AppleScript by releasing JSTalk.


From the blog post announcement:

JSTalk’s goal can described like this: JSTalk is to AppleScript, what Cocoa is to Carbon. […] You write your scripts in JavaScript, and application communication is handled via Cocoa’s distributed objects. Like PyObjc and RubyCocoa, JSTalk uses a bridge to talk to Cocoa (JSCocoa + WebKit’s JavaScriptCore), so you get all the power and speed that comes with it.

As a fan of both Cocoa and JavaScript, I couldn’t be more excited. Nice work Gus!
