Invoke Automator Workflows From Terminal/Shell on OSX

August 15, 2019 ☼ developmentosxautomator

Working on more automation around this blog, I learned last night that it’s possible to run Automater workflows from the shell:

/usr/bin/automator ~/Desktop/workflow.workflow

This can also be used within a shell script! Which could be added to launchd

Thanks to kcrypted for the tip!
