Auto-set Preferences

This Applescript uses OffShoot's Disk Added event to identify an OffShoot app start and sets one or more preferences through the OffShoot API.

This script uses API calls that require a OffShoot Pro license. Email if you're interested in an OffShoot Pro license, or check out all of its pro features here.

How to use

  1. Open the script and edit the settings.

  2. Add the script to the Disk Added event in OffShoot's Settings > Scripting pane.

  3. When OffShoot starts the script will:

    • check if the Disk Added event is triggered by the startup drive (only happens once per app start)

    • set the preferences specified in settings
