Your book sounds really interesting, looking forward to own a copy of it.
In previous iCal program of Mac, there was a scripts directory where you could place scripts that would allow you for example to send an email notification to the people that invited you to a meeting (in case you were using other email clients like Sparrow).
Since they changed to Calendar program to replace the iCal there is no scripts directory and although haven't looked so deeply, but I have looked around and I have no way to trigger this kind of actions.
Do you know of a way to automate these kind of things in the Calendar program?
Thanks a lot, that is indeed great information which I plan to try out, already looking at several things to do with it.
Yet, that doesn't cover the specific problem of "invite confirmations", that would allow me to trigger awesome things as an alert, but doesn't allow me to for example, send an invitation email reply when I confirm my assistance to a meeting (when not using Mac Mail Client).
Do you think of a solution for that case?
That's an interesting use case that I'd never thought of before—having an invitation trigger an AppleScript. I don't see a good way to do that in Calendar, but I suggest asking in the MacScripter forums—if it can be done, I'll bet someone there knows how to do it.
