24.1. Scripting iWork

Apple's office productivity suite is called iWork and it is targeted to home users, small businesses, and professionals working in education. The suite features a word processor (Pages), a spreadsheet (Numbers), and a tool for professional presentations (Keynote). All three titles ship with a variety of stationery and templates that can be extended. The whole iWork suite supports import and export of Microsoft Office documents and ties heavily into Apple's iLife product.

We will not cover every aspect of iWork scripting here, as that would fill a long chapter on its own. However, the following sections will give a decent overview of iWork's two most-used applications, Pages and Keynote; enough for home, business, and university users of those two applications to get started automating their tasks. A quick introduction to Numbers' scripting features will be given as well.
