Yojimbo and EagleFiler, two personal information management apps, have been updated.
Both gain greater support for AppleScript and well as other enhancements making them easier and quicker to use.
Yojimbo 1.4 gains an “Untagged” factory collection, so that you can see at a glance which items are untagged.
Like many people, I was hoping for a change to the smart collections for tags, which would allow an option for matching “either/or” on multiple tags.
This didn’t happen.
The only option for multiple tags is still “match all”.
The big ticket item in this update is the improved AppleScript support.
Yojimbo now has a solid AppleScript dictionary.
I am not very good at AppleScript myself, but this does open the way for others who are to write scripts that will better integrate Yojimbo in our workflows.
I’m looking forward to that. More examples like Dylan’s Yojimbo, del.icio.us and NetNewsWire scripts can only be a good thing.
An extension in the way URLs that point to HTML are handled makes it possible to import Mailsmith HTML attachments and the contents of the Firefox Scrapbook collection.
EagleFiler 1.1.2 also features improved AppleScript support, including a new “import text” command which takes a text string and creates a new rich text file in the library.
Navigating through the various elements of the interface with the tab key is now more reliable.
Users of PDFView can capture PDFs in EagleFiler.
The operation of EagleFiler is snappier due to improvements in the way emptying the trash and indexing searches are handled.
Many tweaks and fixes are also included, which you can read in the full changelog .
