Microsoft’s VBA was/is the perfect application level scripting and automation tool. There is nothing equivalent on the Mac or iOS. If you have Excel or Word on the Mac go check it out. It’s too bad Apple hasn’t provided anything this useful or powerful on the Mac.

@fahrni What about JXA?

Mind you, the problem on Mac has always been too few applications exposing rich scripting elements.

@tewha Not for average users. JavaScript is a nasty language full of weird behaviors. Apple is pushing Swift hard but I think it's too advanced.
