Get Started Using JavaScript For Automation In Yosemite

One of the lesser known little features in OS X Yosemite is the new ability to use JavaScript for automating tasks with AppleScript. This is an awesome way to extend your AppleScript automation, but it’s not super-easy to learn. MacStories has a starter guide to get you going.

The MacStories guide shows you the basics of using JavaScript with AppleScript, then walks your through the process of creating an AppleScript to automatically play a playlist in iTunes. You’ll be better off with a little knowledge of JavaScript here, but MacStories’ guide is enough to at least get you started.
