More about iHook

The current version of the software is 1.1.0 and was updated on 7/24/2008. It's available for users with the operating system Mac OS X and prior versions, and it is available in English.

iHook is a pretty light software that doesn't need as much storage space than the average program in the section Utilities.

Since the program joined our selection of programs and apps in 2006, it has obtained 128 downloads, and last week it had 0 downloads.

iHook is a graphical frontend for any commandline executable. It gives scripts a pleasant Aqua face, and allows script writers to provide graphical feedback without having to learn one of the higher APIs available for Mac OS X.

iHook accomplishes this through its ability to understand a set of directives. When a script writes an iHook Directive to stdout, iHook will modify its own interface based on the content of the Directive. A simple shell script can have an Aqua interface, complete with a progress bar and drawer.

When launched in the Finder, iHook prompts the user to choose a script to run; iHook also accepts file drops on its icon, and will attempt to run the dropped file. iHook is also highly useful as an interface for Mac OS X LogoutHooks.
