I want to create a folder action that is run every time a folder is opened, instead of only when files are added to the folder. From what I've found online, there doesn't seem to be a way; is there or are there any alternatives to accomplish this? I'm running OSX Lion.

What are you trying to do once the folder is opened? Maybe there is a better solution than an action on just the folder opening.
