If you precede any script lines (starting with
$) with an exclamation point, that script will be ignored when opening a Bunch and instead run only when the Bunch is closed. Here’s an example that uses the same script with different arguments for open and quit:
# Run this when opening the Bunch $ ~/scripts/myscript.sh open - STATUS=opening # Run this when closing the bunch !$ ~/scripts/myscript.sh close - STATUS=closing
The same works for commands. To run a command when a Bunch closes, use:
You can also set an entire snippet to open when the Bunch closes using the same syntax. Just use
!<snippet.name to have the contents of that snippet or snippet fragment load when the Bunch is closed.
!<<#On Close ___ #[On Close] Tweetbot Messages * tell application "Moom" to arrange windows according to snapshot "Comms"
Note that in the case of apps, a single exclamation point (
!AppName) quits the app rather than performing an action on close. Bunch doesn’t automatically relaunch apps that are quit this way; you have to explicitly instruct it with
!! (a double negative).
The following will force quit Dropbox when opening the Bunch, and then restart it when closing.
$ killall Dropbox !!Dropbox
To quit Twitter when opening the Bunch, then re-launch it on close:
