Pashua ist a tool for creating native Aqua dialog windows for Perl, PHP, Tcl, Python, Ruby, Rexx and shell scripts as well as AppleScript. The GUI elements which can be used for such dialogs include text input fields, checkboxes, radiobuttons, popup menus, open panels or buttons. Moreover, it's possible to embed images or PDFs. Any data submitted from the dialog will be passed on to the calling script. To describe the dialog window, Pashua uses a very simple syntax. All the tedious details such as positioning the elements, calculating the window size etc. are handled automatically by Pashua, thus you can fully concentrate on your application.
What's new in version 0.11
Pashua is now Open Source, licensed under the 3-clause BSD license. You can find the source code on GitHub.
Option -e has been deprecated for some time as is now removed. If this option is used, a warning will be written to stderr, but apart from that, the option does not have any effect. Note: in some cases (notably: passing a non-UTF8 dialog configuration via stdin) this can cause an error.
