I am trying to setup a watch folder so that when a file is added to a folder, I can run a shell script...for this purpose I made a simple test but cannot make it work...
Here is my applescript
on adding folder items to theWatchedFolder after receiving theDetectedItems activate display dialog "Transcode Successful" do shell script "/Users/wme/Desktop/script.sh" & theDetectedItems end adding folder items to
and the script.sh
#!/bin/sh f="$1" do name=$(basename "$f") dir=$(dirname "$f") notify-send "$name" done
While it does alert me "Transcode Successful" So I do know that the applescript is working...I dont get notified via the shellscript that the correct filename has transmitted...how do I do that?
