iworkautomation - Populating Tables with Data

"Tables are meant to hold data. That's obvious. So the question you're
probably asking now is: using scripting, how do you get data into a table?
The answer is: the script iterates the data one bit at a time, and places
each bit in its corresponding table cell.

Huh?

It makes sense, once you understand that it's all about the data and how it
is read. You see, table data is grouped by either row or column."

Jamf Nation - Finding and formatting cells in Excel

"So, like a lot of people, when I do archives to tape, I build a spreadsheet
of the files in a given archive so that folks can easily find files they need
restored. However, when you have say, gobs of folders and potentially
hundreds of thousands of files, you want to do a bit of formatting to help
folks out. Doing this manually would suck, so of course, I script it."

Apple - Folder Actions Reference

"Folder Actions is a feature of macOS that lets you associate AppleScript scripts
with folders. A Folder Action script is executed when the folder to which it is
attached has items added or removed, or when its window is opened, closed,
moved, or resized. The script provides a handler that matches the appropriate
format for the action, as described in this chapter."

r - The only thing my touchbar is good for

Code:
set json to (do shell script "curl https://www.bitstamp.net/api/v2/ticker/btcusd")

tell application "JSON Helper"
    set result to read JSON from json
    set price to |last| of result as string
end tell

set result_string to "$" & price & ""


First i had to install "Json Helper" from the App store, it's a small plugin for AppleScript.
This is how I got it working in BetterTouch tools:
1) Global -> [+Widget]
2) Select toucbar wigdet: Run apple script and show...
3) Click [Advanced Configuration]
Paste this, modify for dollar and other exchange if you wish.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Automator/comments/7xrgf5/apple_icon_cache_removal/

Hi guys, I've got this script but I need to automate it so my boss (who has difficulty remembering scripts nowadays) can simply double click it as an app. Found the following script on github (works perfect when pasted into terminal):
sudo find /private/var/folders/ -name com.apple.dock.iconcache -exec rm {} \;
Need to turn it into an application, i've tried pasting that into run shell script but no luck. Any idea's? I've posted it in applescript but not had much luck.
