Getting the current active URL in Google Chrome
AppleScript is a scripting language that automates tasks on Apple devices. It is a powerful tool that can control various applications on your Mac. In this blog post, we will discuss how to use AppleScript to get the URL of the current tab in Google Chrome.
Getting the URL of the current tab in Google Chrome
Here is a sample AppleScript that can be used to get the URL of the current tab in Google Chrome:
tell application "Google Chrome" set sedCommand to "s/"- Jira"//g" set broswerurl to get URL of active tab of first window set browsertitle to get title of active tab of first window set myecho to "echo " & browsertitle & " | sed `" & sedCommand & "`" set mytitle to do shell script "echo " & browsertitle & " | sed " & sedCommand & "" set the clipboard to "[" & mytitle & "](" & broswerurl & ")" end tell
This is an excellent piece of code because it filters out the word "Jira" when you are getting the current Jira Issue.
This works for Slack, but you can easily modify the "set clipboard" to whatever output that you want.
