Pause Using Applescript On Mac

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Realised a fairly significant issue this morning when I downloaded Office for Mac, and I have my downloads folder set to sync across machines.  As I'm working remotely and using a mifi device, I just burned through 2gb for the download itself, and the presumably another 2gb (or more) to upload it via BT Sync.

 

As I already have scripts that execute when I'm not on my home network, I'm wondering if there's a way to include some Applescript to pause BitTorrent Sync until I'm back at home.  I can't see an Applescript dictionary in the app, so wondering if 1) there's any hidden functionality to pause that I might take advantage of or 2) if anyone has done something like this by scripting the UI (either the menubar icon or otherwise).

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

Unfortunately, Sync does not support AppleScript. The only thing I can propose at the moment is controlling Sync via API. Although, it allows to operate only classic 1.4 folders.
