AppleScript Editor is a code editor for the AppleScript scripting language, included in Mac OS. AppleScript Editor provides basic debugging capabilities and can save AppleScripts as plain text (.applescript), as a compiled script (.scpt), as a script bundle (.scptd), or as an application (.app). AppleScript Editor also handles script dictionary files, allowing the user to see what scripting classes and commands are available for each scriptable application installed on the computer.

Prior to Mac OS X 10.3, Script Editor was developed using the Carbon (API). 10.3 introduced a new Script Editor written using Cocoa (API).


AppleScript Editor was known as "Script Editor" until Mac OS X 10.6.
