Helpful Applescripts to add and remove the current track from a playlist

13 Aug

I use these scripts, slightly modified versions of Doug Adam's, along with Quicksilver to maintain a few of my iTunes playlists. I can just type Ctrl+Cmd+c and the currently playing song is added my coding playlist.  I can similarly type Ctrl+Opt+c to remove the currently playing track from the coding playlist.

The shortcuts are done by using Quicksilver triggers to run these scripts.  I just put their path in it's path for discovery of applications.  If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Another neat trick is to change out the icon for the script.  You can set Quicksilver to show this icon for a second when an add or remove script is ran, which is useful.

The scripts are available here
