Run AppleScript

Runs an arbitrary AppleScript snippet in the context of the selected browser.

In your script, set the variable RETURN_VALUE to your return value, it'll be returned as JSON-encoded string.


A pretty-printed JSON string containing the data your script stored in the variable RETURN_VALUE. I know that this means the sky's the limit, but please don't go overboard and keep it simple. 😅

When the variable RETURN_VALUE could not be JSON-encoded, an error will be raised.



A string containing an AppleScript which will be run in the context of the selected browser.


Lets you select from the list of supported browsers. Accepts a browser reference as input.


Here, we set up a native "Text" action containing a simple AppleScript snippet which will return the current window count for the selected browser and a timestamp string as a list:

set RETURN_VALUE to [count of windows, (current date) as text]

We use the result of this action as the AppleScript input parameter for the "Run AppleScript" action, and select Brave Browser. When run, the action will take RETURN_VALUE and convert its contents to JSON. The output of the action is:
