JSON Helper for AppleScript App Reviews

8 add

Simple, does what it says

This is a helpful little app that does exaclty what it claims: adds the ability to work with JSON data in AppleScript.

Kind of a clunky way to extend AppleScripting functionality

For this application to actually work, you have to leave it as a "helper" application running in the background. Id prefer it if this could just be a Scripting Addition plugin, but Im pretty sure those arent allowed on the App Store. Wish Apple would change their mind about this though.

Performs great

This helper app does exactly what it says, and it does it well. Very helpful for anyone dealing with JSON and Applescript. Nothing else is this easy.

Super helpful

This is a great app, and has allowed me to do much more in applescript. The developer was also responsive when I emailed with a question. He even provided me with a beta version that had a feature I asked for. (I only wish he would officially release that version here, so that everyone could have it)

Works as advertised.

This product is genius. It works as advertised. I’m very happy with it. Now I just with there was a “CSV Helper for Applescript”… :)

Just what I needed

Works great even for me and I’m a non developer type. I’ve been using it to pull in data from import.io api’s and it has opened up a whole new world for me. Thanks for the great app!

Fails on very basic things.

Take, for example: global alertResult tell application "Google Chrome" set alertResult to display alert "Hi!" buttons {"Well, hello there."} end tell tell application "JSON Helper" set jsonResult to make JSON from alertResult end tell This results in an error, because the display alert returns the following record: {button returned:”Well, hello there."} and JSON Helper barfs on it. It does work if the key is properly quoted in AppleScript: {|button returned|:"Well, hello there.”} but that’s not how display alert returns it.

Works perfectly

Very happy with this app, makes it extremely simple to fetch data from JSON files and use within Applescript. The developer support was very helpful too when I asked a question via email.
