Have you been looking for a tool to control some app that you just can't control with AppleScript or Automator?
Congratulations! You have just found total Repeater!
Repeater provides a much needed and very convenient platform for recording repetitive actions without having to learn and understand Automator or AppleScript, which are well beyond most user's abilities.
Moreover, not all apps can be scripted at all, but Repeater can help you anyway.
Furthermore, you can integrate Repeater with popular scripting languages to dramatically improve their possibilities.
Repeater is a tool specially designed for recording and playback user actions such as mouse movements and clicks, standard and hardware keystrokes, vertical and horizontal scrolling & zooming. It is also capable of storing information about currently running applications to launch them on playback.
Repeater's UI resembles a music player with standard record, rewind and playback buttons, familiar to the most users. It also includes events visual preview, which helps to navigate through the recordings.
The utility is best suited for creation of live presentations or UI testing, and even just for fun.
Repeater has some advanced scripting features such as
★ automatically start playback
★ automatically start recording
★ loop mode
★ stealth mode
★ blocking playback interruptions
★ automatically quit after playback
★ events file decompiler and compiler
Repeater can work over SSH connection! Paired with stealth mode recording and built-in preview, it is easy to spy what your kids are actually doing while you are away... (Command line knowledge is necessary for some operations.)
Ratings and Reviews
Easy to use for boring, repetitive tasks!
I recently had to do a repetitive (and boring) task that the Mac Automator wasn’t a good fit for, so I turned to Repeater. It is very simple to use - just hit record and start doing your thing. The repeat option was invaluable so that Repeater would just keep chipping away on my boring tasks. Thanks for the great application!
Currently I find this to be the most decent reply device that is free. It records mouse strokes just fine. However, I am unable to record keystrokes which may be something to do with my preferences or OS yosemite. I hope for more updates to improve quality.
start and stop points on time slider
I would have given this 5 stars however, I think it needs start and stop points that can be moved along the time slider so you can therefore trim unwanted movenments from both ends. Other than that a great app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
