On OSX the llatest version (184.108.40.2060.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!
Please bring back AppleScript support!
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.
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 NewPositionend tell
But now in Spotify 220.127.116.110.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.
This is a temporary fix: http://hyperdock.bahoom.com/spotify_fix
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.
Thx for the fix!
Still broken on 18.104.22.168.g9977a14b.
