Sort iTunes playlists by date and track number
Authored by: burgerga123 on Dec 07, '09 11:58:52AM
Hmmm... I'm not quite getting what I need to do to get this to work. I installed appscript fine. And I pasted the code in to text edit and saved it with a .py extension. Typed chmod a+x ~/RecentSort.py which seemed to work. Then when I execute the program in terminal it gives me some sort of error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/garrisonburger/RecentSort.py", line 165, in <module>
    finished = makePlaylist(iTunes, sortedSongs, newPlaylist, playlist, verbose)
  File "/Users/garrisonburger/RecentSort.py", line 152, in makePlaylist
    location = playlists[oldPlaylist].parent()
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.6-universal/egg/appscript/reference.py", line 648, in __call__
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.6-universal/egg/appscript/reference.py", line 504, in __call__
appscript.reference.CommandError: Command failed:
		OSERROR: -1728
		MESSAGE: Can't get reference.
		COMMAND: app(u'/Applications/iTunes.app').user_playlists['Recently Added'].parent.get()

Not quite sure what I'm doing wrong. I tried running it with the -p and -n parameters but got the same error. Any help?
