After days of research, testing, and deep diving around scripting many different things for Illustrator,  I think I'm hooked!  it is not easy to code and I have to ask for help here but man, it's so powerful when incorporated into a workflow!

Thanks to the generosity and free-to-use mindset of many devs, I could find resources and packs of scripts directly from the coders themselves or awesome community posts here.

What would be the amount of interest to build a platform with a centralized list of scripts for Illustrator?
Besides some websites, which are often very old, I couldn’t find any kind of hub for scripting resources and lists

I'm thinking of going basic at first and just opening up a Google Drive with all  The Script I've gathered for now.

Also if people are into that I would love to collaborate and make this list grow if there are people willing to share resources and maybe do some kind of how-to and wiki basics.

If you happen to know some resources around scripting, feel free to share them here

Hey Max,

I love scripts, they can do things that take them minutes that would take me hours, so yes!

But I'm not a scripter, I would like to see some sort of tutorial - I've really been struggling to understand the syntax to build my own scripts - a long time ago I used to use a Mac and found appleScript very easy.

I bought Visual Blueprint for scripting in PS & AI (2003) a year or so ago from Thrift Books, the only book I could find that actually lead you step by step, went through the whole book, understood it, but still can't build my own scripts! Maybe just a failing in my old brain.

There's a lot of websites with very useful info but i still can't get my head around adding properties, values, methods and parameter types in a string to get a meaningful action.

Completely agree with you, a platform to centralize all the scripts will be great... 

I am not a programmer but I like the great job some scripters do around to enhance the functionality of Illustrator, great idea
