TurboTool 2.0

TurboTool is a drag-n-drop and Service tool hiding the power of UNIX under a user-friendly graphical frontend.
Whether it is a simple job like 'Open this file with that application', or a more complex one like 'Update this file on my homepage', or 'Use Grab to make a snapshot from the screen and open it in GraphicConverter' - there are jobs we all do every day but we do it by hand instead of letting the computer do its job.
The power of TurboTool comes from its concept of 'Atomics', the building blocks of 'Actions', which may be performed on files, on the pasteboard or standalone, by using TurboTool or 'Droplets'. The types of atomics range from simple info dialogs to shell scripts.
Several example actions are provided for you to be adjusted or used as template for your own needs.
