OnyX 1.4.1: The Wizard Behind the Curtain

Task: write a program that encapsulates AppleScript which in turn encapsulates very simple and highly innocuous 'defaults' commands - then don't let on what you're doing: the essence of OnyX.

Every command in this list is a simple Terminal command encapsulated inside OnyX - no more, much less. All OnyX does is call them - without ever telling you how easy it really is. You can copy them out and call them yourself.

You had it all there on your computer all along. OnyX didn't tell you.
