AuTool Scripts

AuTool is a scripting language that brings the power of Greasy Monkey to your desktop environment.

AuTool provides a rich set of APIs to help you interact with your operating system and network; you can use these APIs to automate your workflow with ease. Check out our showcases to see what you can do with AuTool.


Note: AuTool is still in alpha stage. We are working to refine the functions. Please stay tuned for the updates.


  • Install the free apps from our example script page.
  • AuTool searches for autool-tasks.json file under $HOME/Desktop/apps folder, and loads the tasks into the GUI window.

Add Scripts

  • Each AuTool script is a YAML text file. You can specify your own action sequence or configure the script start-time, hotkey, number of instances, etc.

  • Here is a simple example to change keyboard when active window is changed. The APIs are in form of ${TYPE}.${ACTION}(...${ARGS}) => ${RETURN}. E.g., is a built-in API that can execute shell commands and returns the output.

task: switch-when-window-switched
  - hotkey: ~
  - autostart: true

  # Listen for window switch event
  - event.on(__WIN_ACTIVE_CHANGED__) => $win:

      # Switch keyboard to English 
      - cmd.if( {{ $win.title }} == 'Visual Studio Code' ):
          - select
