QuitArena — Quit all apps, with exceptions

Recommended Posts

Call qapps and all apps excluding the ones you set in the keep_alive Workflow Environment Variable will quit. The Finder is added to the exclusion list by default, unless you set kill_finder to true.

You’ll need to use the exact names of the apps as they present themselves to the system. To prevent multiple from quitting, separate their names with commas.


qprocesses will kill all processes, subject to the same keep_alive and kill_finder settings, meaning even things in the background that you don’t see will be asked to quit.

 

The External Triggers allow to temporarily override which apps to keep alive by passing them as the argument.


Note both options ask the apps to exit (SIGTERM) instead of telling them (SIGKILL). If you need to force processes to terminate, consider ProcessControl instead.

Update.


Added External Triggers.


To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.

Actually  - even more of a dummy - since the update it doesn't seem to quit the apps anymore. Is there an input needed from me?

I’m confused. First it seemed like you’d never used the Workflow and now you’re saying it’s not working anymore, implying you had it working previously.

 

Which is it? I’ll need to know your steps so I can help you debug.
