Changes

  • Compatibility release for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
  • Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard introduced significant changes to the way application services are handled. Although these changes enhance the way services work, they do have an impact on Bellhop and any services you write with Bellhop. Version 2.0.5 will be the last release of Bellhop since much of its functionality can now be achieved via Automator Services. Bellhop should continue to work normally on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
  • The major Snow Leopard changes include
  • No Hierarchical Service Menus
  • Services are initially hidden from the Services Menu

With Bellhop, you can write Mac OS X system services using high-level scripting languages, such as Ruby and AppleScript. Bellhop takes away much of the burden in developing services, freeing you to concentrate on what your services do at a high-level.

Need a ruby service to transform any selected text? No problem! Fancy the ability to display a delayed stock quote using AppleScript and SOAP? No problem! The possibilities are virtually limitless. Using Bellhop, you can custom-tailor services that match the way you work.
