Here is an updated release of get_enclosures. I have freely stolen AppleScript snippets from Ray Slakinski’s pyPodder to improve my iTunes integration. Now, iTunes will stay in the back if it is being newly started or will stay where it is if it is already running. Also, the feeds.txt file is no longer in the zip so you don’t have to worry about overwriting your subscriptions if upgrading. It will just write a starter file if it doesn’t already exist, otherwise it will just leave it be if it is already there.
Try it out and please give me whatever feedback you can. I’m looking at perhaps trying to incorporate automatic installation of the necessary Perl modules or maybe even an installer to do the things Adam discusses, setting up the modules and the cron job interactively at install time. Does anyone have any input on good free installer programs for OS X or even a multi-platform?
