Automator Framework Reference

The Automator framework supports the development of actions for the Automator application. An action is a bundle loaded by the Automator application that performs a specific task, such as copying a file or cropping an image. Using the application, users can construct and execute workflows consisting of a sequence of actions. As a workflow executes, Automator passes the output of an action to the next action in the workflow. Automator loads action bundles from standard locations in the file system: /System/Library/Automator, /Library/Automator, and ~/Library/Automator.
