My downloads folder is finally structured. For this I used the Folder Action in Automator. This is a workflow that triggers when a new file is added to a certain folder.
The automator in Mac OS X provides a drag-and-drop programming experience. I dragged the Filter Finder Items and the Move Finder Items into the workflow. The Filter Finder Items validates the downloaded file is an Application. The Move Finder Items moves the downloaded Application to the applications folder.
After saving the folder action/workflow you can find it under the Services context menu of the Downloads folder.
I’ve created a Folder Action for disk image and application. When I download a new file type I will create a new Folder Action.
A little less time in the Not Important eisenhower box and more time to be productive.
