A word count action script for Quicksilver
Authored by: thejoecarroll on Feb 21, '07 04:58:42AM

Nice script, monototo. You're approaching the task from a slightly different angle and your offering would certainly be more useful than mine in some situations. Personally, I prefer Growl Notifications to the big text thing in Quicksilver. Although Quicksilver has its own Growl command in Applescript, I found the formating was coming out all wrong so I interfaced directly with Growl.

The only alternative I can think of is Quicksilver's proxy object "Current Selection". It should work, but certain features/catalogs need to be activated and it would probably be a good idea to check/convert the selection if it is not a piece of text.
