Develop actions that the Automator app can load and run. View, edit, and run Automator workflows in your app

The Automator framework supports the development of actions for the Automator app, as well as the ability to run a workflow in developer apps. An action is a bundle that, when loaded and run, performs a specific task, such as copying a file or cropping an image. Using Automator, users can construct and execute workflows consisting of a sequence of actions. Developers can also load and execute workflows in their apps. As a workflow executes, the output of one action is typically passed as the input to the next action. Automator loads action bundles from standard locations in the file system: /System/Library/Automator, /Library/Automator, and ~/Library/Automator.
