launchd

Is there a way to get a user-defined launchd task (i.e. like the one in this question) to get user confirmation before executing the task? A popup like the one for scheduled sleep (with yes/no and a timer in case of no user input) would be great, otherwise a simple yes/no popup would work.

• Make launchd call this AppleScript. It displays a dialog with a timeout and calls a shell script if the user selected "Ok".

set timeoutInSeconds to 60
set abortOnTimeout to true

tell application (path to frontmost application as text)
try
set dialogResult to display dialog "Do you want to execute?" default button 2 giving up after timeoutInSeconds
on error number -128
return
end try
end tell

if gave up of dialogResult and abortOnTimeout then
return
end if

do shell script "/path/to/yourscript.sh"
