  • create their own Command Line Scripts (with Growl output)
  • launch AppleScripts (with parameters) with a keyword
  • run Automator workflows
  • build advanced Search Filters
  • create keywords for files and file groups

Extensions can be easily installed just by double-clicking on the exported file or dragging them to the Extensions home below. Have a look at the new Extensions page and the first examples by some of our users.

  1. I guess EXTENSIONs are either a lion-only or a powerpack-only feature? Because I’m on 0.9.9 and 10.6.8 here and don’t see the tab.
