The module MiniAEFrame provides a framework for an application
that can function as an Open Scripting Architecture
(OSA) server, i.e. receive and process
AppleEvents. It can be used in conjunction with
FrameWork or standalone.
This module is temporary, it will eventually be replaced by a module
that handles argument names better and possibly automates making your
The MiniAEFrame module defines the following classes:
- AEServer ()
A class that handles AppleEvent dispatch. Your application should
subclass this class together with either
FrameWork.Application. Your __init__() method should
call the __init__() method for both classes.
- MiniApplication ()
A class that is more or less compatible with
FrameWork.Application but with less functionality. Its
event loop supports the apple menu, command-dot and AppleEvents; other
events are passed on to the Python interpreter and/or Sioux.
Useful if your application wants to use AEServer but does not
provide its own windows, etc.
