Description: Plisterine is an application that will help you easily create launch agents.
What are launch agents, you ask? Launch agents are magic little files with which you can automate the launching/running of applications and scripts when certain conditions you define are met.
With Plisterine you can create launch agents that launch an application/script: • At a specific time every day • At a specific time on a specific day of the week • At load or login • When a change occurs in a folder (file added/deleted/moved, etc.) • When a new volume or disk is mounted
You can also create launch agents that run an application: • All the time (and automatically relaunch it if the application crashes) • On an interval, such as every 10 seconds or every hour • Relaunch only after a crash (as opposed to properly quitting)
Maybe you have a media server and want to ensure iTunes is running all the time, or you rely on Dropbox and can't afford to not have the sync client running all the time. Perhaps you're a computer whiz and are just tired of manually creating the launch agents for all of the other apps and scripts you have which automate everything in your digital life. Plisterine makes configuring launch agents super easy.
Plisterine requires Mac OS X 10.8 or higher.
