Prompted by a discussion about adapting the Moodswing/Moodblast thing to set the Adium status message from Launchbar, I decided to try my hands at AppleScript for the first time. Here is the result: Set Adium Status (v.0.0.0.1… or something). It’s basically a quick adaptation of Moodswing to make it work from within Launchbar.
To make it work, drop the script in your ~/Library/Scripts folder. Then: summon Launchbar, find the script, hit the spacebar and enter your new status message, hit enter, done. You even get a nice Growl notification window.
The script is very simple right now, for instance there’s much less error-checking that in the original Moodswing script, but it works.
