What is Butler?

Butler's purpose is to make it easier for you to perform different — potentially recurring — tasks. Butler lets you arrange these tasks in its fully customizable configuration. There, you can assign one or more triggers to a task:
Triggers  ←  Butler  →  Tasks
menu bar/docklet
pop-up menus
hot keys
hot corners
launch applications
open files
access preference panes
manage bookmarks
search the web
run AppleScripts
extend the pasteboard
enter text snippets
simulate keystrokes
control iTunes
accelerate Spotlight
move/copy files
• more...

Due to its unique variety of triggers and tasks, Butler is more flexible than any other utility you've seen before. So don't worry if you don't have a use for all of its features right from the beginning. Just start using Butler and discover a new feature every day.
