Download And Install

Just download the DMG and double click it to mount. Drag the Bunch icon to the Applications folder.

You can then launch Bunch from your Applications folder. (Or with Spotlight. Or LaunchBar or Alfred. Or the command line. Or AppleScript…)

When Bunch launches, it will appear in your menu bar (no Dock icon). All of Bunch’s features are accessed by clicking the stem icon in the menu bar.

The first time your run Bunch, you’ll get a welcome screen that will let you set some basic options, such as Launch at Login, which is recommended so you always have Bunch available.

See the configuration section for instructions on personalizing the setup. In Preferences, use the “Reveal” button next to the Bunch Folder setting to go directly to that folder and start editing/adding Bunches.

Accessibility Permissions

To use some of Bunch’s features, you’ll need to give it Accessibility permission in System Preferences. During the welcome sequence, Bunch will ask you to give it permission, and provide a shortcut to opening System Preferences.

In System Preferences, go to “Security & Privacy,” then select the “Accessibility” tab from the list on the left. Click the lock icon in the bottom left and unlock the preferences with your system password. If Bunch isn’t already in the list, use the (+) button to add it from your Applications folder. Ensure that the checkbox next to it in the list is checked.

Additional Permissions

As Bunch attempts to control various apps and features of the operating system, you will be asked to grant Bunch permission to perform new operations. Because Bunch is all about automating other apps, your first runs will include a lot of these dialogs. Once you allow an operation, though, you won’t be asked again in the future.

Notifications

At some point you will be asked to allow Bunch to send notifications. Please enable this, as some of Bunch’s error reporting is done through the Notification Center in order to allow your Bunches to run without interrupting for non-fatal errors. It’s recommended that you set the notification style to “Alerts” in System Preferences->Notifications. There’s a shortcut to this System Preferences pane in Bunch Preferences.
