Finally, the power of automation is available regardless of whether you use Omni tools on mobile devices, laptops, or desktops. Using Omni Automation, the Omni Group suite of applications are able to be queried and controlled on both iOS and macOS in ways similar to how they are automated today using the traditional macOS Apple Event-based scripts.
Omni Automation delivers the power of cross-platform scripting in a variety of ways: As Omni Automation scripts written, edited, and run from within the built-in console windows in the Omni applications; from within 3rd-party script editor and workflow apps; or from the online console window provided on this website.
As installable application plugins that contain functions and handlers to perform favorite tasks. As libraries containing your favorite scripting routines that can be called from your custom scripts. As embedded webpage links, like on this site. Clicking or tapping an Omni Automation link can run a script in an Omni application, or copy it to the clipboard for further editing. As actions assigned to Omni objects that when activated, perform tasks within the host application or other Omni applications.

Simonm 22 April One of the best reviews I've read on this site! Lots of specifics to back up your assessment. I followed the development of this for a while but was shocked at the pace and the fact they seemed content with basically making Outliner They seemed to struggle with getting a relatively stable release out the door at all despite months years? Omni Group clearly aren't what they used to be.
