Bring back Applescript support.

On OSX the llatest version (1.0.1.1060.gc75ebdfd) has all Applescript support removed!?

I would really see the Applescript support brought back.

Hey folks, this returned with the 1.0.3 Desktop app update.

Yes. I'm pretty sure this is just a mistake from the devs on the last deploy but all of my scripts return a "

error "Spotify got an error: Can’t continue «event spfyNext»." number -1708" now

 

This is super lame as mty keyboard does not have media keys and I use these applescripts to play/pause next and prev tracks on spotify!

Yes, all AppleScript support in latest version has been removed for no reason whatsoever. We would truly appreciate bringing it back as clearly many of us use advanced AppleScripts to control the application in other ways than mouse-clicks.

 

Thanks!

Yes please bring back AppleScript support. I had a nice little macro in Keyboard Maestro that would let me hit a Mac key to skip ahead 15 seconds but I can't do it any more. This simple AppleScript below used to work great:

 

tell application "Spotify"
  set CurrentPosition to the player position
  set NewPosition to CurrentPosition + 15
  set the player position to NewPosition
end tell

 

But now in Spotify 1.0.1.1060.gc75ebdfd it returns the error:

"/var/folders/nn/0kphrdvx58z_s08qns7vm6s40000gn/T/Keyboard-Maestro-Script-EB15F600-6811-493C-B3CD-5EA177F77A26:62:70: script error: Expected end of line but found identifier. (-2741)"

Caveat for me was that I had to additionally restart Alfred2 before it began working again.

Thanks McManCSU and eproxus! I followed the steps from http://hyperdock.bahoom.com/spotify_fix and now Spotify AppleScript is fine. I didn't have to restart my Mac as the the article suggested -- that's problably something specific to Hyperdock.
