In 1999 I wrote an AppleScript that keeps Frontier running.


Now I want the same functionality but running from the command line in the Terminal app.

Any help would be most appreciated. :-)

I did this using launchd scripts when I ran a worldoutline server on an old powerbook. Let me see if I can dig that up.

I think I did what you said to do, and quit the OPML Editor, but it didn't relaunch.

I create a text file with the contents in your gist, saved it to the desktop, then moved it to ~/Library/LaunchAgents

I quit the OPML Editor.

It did not relaunch.

Never mind. I have the OPML Editor in a different location than what is in your plist.

I have made some modifications to the gist to make it a bit more robust. I also edited the Readme file to include instructions about modifying the plist if you have OPML installed somewhere other than /Applications/OPML.
